About the property


3 Bedrooms and 1.5 Baths in this two story brick home. Located about one mile south of downtown Sheboygan on a bluff overlooking the beautiful Lake Michigan. Just enter Sheboygan, WI 53081 in any search engine and you can easily figure out how far things are away. There is no direct access to the lake from the home but it is located less than half a mile south of and north of two public parks with beaches with plenty of street parking. They are an easy walk or drive to.

The kitchen and both bathrooms have just been remodeled. Its like living in a new house that still has that old world charm. The kitchen features beautiful white cabinets with a quartz countertop and a glass mosaic backsplash and stainless steel appliances. Each room has a queen size mattress. If extra room is needed, we can set up a queen size air mattress with prior notice. Friday and Saturday night stays require a two day booking.

Now with WIFI.

Perfect for us

  • 5 of 5

Having lived near the lake in Sheboygan most of our lives, coming back to visit and living on the lake shore was wonderful. Everything was perfect from the time we walked in. We were greeted with a Welcome board and packet and a pan of delicious gluten free brownies. You couldn't ask for a better view. It was neat and clean and had everything we needed. Just like home.

Thank you Alex and Lora, you were great hosts.

Beautiful Home with a Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5

From beginning to end, the rental experience was delightful. Alex was quick with responses when emailed. The home was spotless with a well stocked kitchen (we're foodies), toiletries and travel info for area. The view of the lake is beautiful. The furniture looks inviting and it doesn't disappoint.

We enjoyed the area as well. We explored the shops in the nicely maintained downtown, enjoyed the Kohler Art Gallery and its gardens (it's free), walked out to the lighthouse, enjoyed numerous restaurants, and spent a day at Kohler Andre State Park.

It was a really fun vacation with the girls! I highly recommend this home! We all said we could easily live here. Thank-you Alex for answering my questions so promptly and allowing us to share your beautiful home!

Cute house, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay! This house has a nice view of the lake with a lovely little back yard. The location is quiet but close to downtown Sheboygan--we walked to some great restaurants. We didn't do any cooking but the kitchen looked well-equipped. The living room furniture was comfortable. The kitchen and bathrooms are nicely updated and clean. Setting up our reservation, check in etc was very easy.

Absolutely delightful weekend in Sheboygan!

  • 4 of 5

Perfect hosts, Alex & Lora greeted us with homemade banana bread, my favorite!

So close to Whistling Straits GC. Our son was in a golf tournament.

Home was a perfect gem for our needs.

Many thanks,

Mark Baker

Perfect Lake Michigan Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The house was very clean with nicely updated kitchen and baths.

It was just the two of us, but there would have been plenty of room for a family or another couple (or two!). And the location was great - 1+ mile south of downtown Sheboygan. Close to restaurants & the beach, yet removed enough to enjoy the peaceful view of the lake. We didn't need anything, but the owners made themselves available and were responsive during the reservation process. A major bonus was the (homemade?) carrot cake that was waiting for us in the fridge. We're still raving about it! We'll definitely go back.
