Beautiful, private, cozy home in the woods

  • 5 of 5

A perfect place for our fall get-a-way. Upon arriving and driving up the long, woodsy, winding driveway, we saw several deer close by, they were there most of the time.

This lovely home was very clean and has all the amenities you could want or need. It's roomy enough for a large family or couples. House has very comfy beds, 2 bedrooms downstairs, and a full bath, and also a half bath with washer and dryer. Upstairs has a full bath, a bedroom with a full bed, and a room (curtains separate bedrooms), with 3 twins. Plus a full family room with TV and couches for lounging.

The fireplace was the main attraction for us as the weather was chilly, windy and rainy most of our stay. A chance you take in October! But Lake Michigan was beautifully stormy, and we were lulled to sleep by the waves! We ventured to the beach when we could, which is down an easy lighted stone path. Plenty of chairs on the deck near the lake, and for sitting around the fire pit. We loved watching the American flag flying near the lake to tell us the direction and speed of the wind!

The house is set back from the lake so you don't see much of the lake from the house, due to a dune there, if that is important to you. But certainly is an easy walk to the beach. We used the BBQ grill, which worked fine, and they have plenty of fireplace wood stored for your use.....which we did, with the chilly weather. Nothing was off limits, the owner is generous, telling you to use whatever is there. Plenty of plates, silverware and cooking equipment and non-perishable food, spices, condiments and basic cooking needs are already there.

For inclement weather, or relaxing, they have a large collection of books to read, an interesting one, The Great Lakes Shipwrecks and Survivals, makes you appreciate the challenges of navigation on the Great Lakes. Also plenty of games and electronic equipment. Not sure what's available for summer activities.

There are so many wonderful places to visit within easy driving distance, Port Washington, Cedarburg, Sheboygan, and Elkhart Lake for fishing, were our favorites. This truly feels like a family home, and am sure many happy memories are made there. Highly recommend this home if you like privacy and your own beach in beautiful surroundings.

Charming and Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our family! Spacious kitchen and dining for us to share the cooking and sitting with family. Loved waking up in the morning and heading to the water with coffee in hand. I didn't want to leave!

Beautiful time on a beautiful lake

  • 5 of 5

The home was very comfortable, beautifully appointed and had everything we needed. The setting was wonderful - quiet woods from which deer periodically appeared and the serenity of Lake Michigan with a lovely sandy beach. Lots of fun on land and water. Our family, from age 10 mos to 80 years, had a wonderful time. We hope to return again and again.

Great Place to spend quality time recharging.

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a classy well kept large home to spend quality time on a beautiful lake this is your place. The house has a lot of space with a beautiful Great Room with a very useful fireplace. The deck by the lake is just an awesome place to spend many hours. The modern kitchen is easy to use and fits nicely with the huge dining room. The privacy of the property also helps with the goal of recharging. My family plans on returning next summer and beyond.

Perfect spot for a family or small group!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the McCall's lake house! It was a perfect get away for us & our adult children because of its location only 45 min. from Milwaukee. The weather was Indian summer perfect so we enjoyed the everything to the max: fire pits in the yard & the beach on Lake Michigan plus numerous fires inside too! The sunrises were unbelievable from the beach plus we enjoyed a full moon & firework display from nearby Port Washington. The property is located a short walk on the beach away from a state park which has hiking trails for all to enjoy. The house was equipped with everything you will ever need to enjoy some relaxing time totally tech free! (We actually got cell service while on the beach but didn't realize it until our last day.) We highly recommend this property! Can't wait to go back in the future...

3 Happy Generations & a small dog!

  • 5 of 5

My family (3 generations and a small dog) stayed at this beautiful home for the second year in a row this summer. I cannot say enough about the amenities, gorgeous home, comfortable beds, vaulted ceilings, skylights, private yard, huge deck and sandy beach. This year the water was warm enough to swim and kayak every day. Relaxing. The only suggestion would be to get a new grill; the insides have seen better days, though we were still able to use it. Will happily book again!!
