Sweet home with great updates and beautiful Lake Michigan view

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I were so pleased with this rental. Adorable older home that the owners completely remodeled the kitchen and full bathroom. Spacious with 3 bedrooms. Simple and uncluttered layout with lots of windows, lots of light. Kitchen stocked with all the appliances you need, even a spice rack for cooking in! And the location was good; not far from downtown Sheboygan. Would be a great place to stay in the summer! Owners left us some homemade pumpkin bread, nice touch.

This is the third time we've stayed in this house. It is always extremely clean, kitchen well stocked, convienent location, and nicely appointed. The owners have always had a nice treat--Christmas cookies, pumpkin pie, etc. We worried would be drafty given older house but we were there in 0 degree temps and it was very toasty.

This house was a perfect spot for a girls getaway. We enjoyed the fantastic views and watch the sunrise over the lake was spectacular! Great house for a small gathering and the lovely cupcakes that greeted us were fantastic. Would definitely stay again!

Family Time

  • 5 of 5

This property has been a great blessing to our family as we come from all parts of the country to gather for the weekend. Upon arrival, there was a delicious cherry almond coffee cake which we ate for breakfast each morning we were there. We had perfect weather with a perfect view of the lake. We are so thankful for our opportunity to stay together here in Sheboygan!
