What makes this house unique

Private home on a clean sandy beach on lake Michigan. Rarely will you see anyone on the beach north or south. 3 level deck right on the beach. No cliff, no stairs to get to the water. Beautiful private yard with huge cedar trees which block the neighbors to the north and the south. We are a short 30 minutes to Milwaukee, and only 15 minutes to Kohler and Terri Andre Park to the north.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I would welcome Pam and her family back. They were very clean and respectful of my lake home. 5 star guest.

Stress-free vacation on the lake!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family from Colorado, Madison, WI and New York met at this wonderful house after my daughter's graduation (go Badgers!) to spend time together and recharge our batteries. Due to busy graduation day, we didn't arrive until after dark, so woke up the next day to experience - THE VIEW! Giant picture window frames the amazing lakefront view - just stunning. On a chilly day you can enjoy the view inside, on a nice day the decks provide plenty of room for lounging and of course you can just go right down to the sandy beach...literally 10 steps away.

Three bedrooms provide plenty of privacy, there are two well-equipped bathrooms, and the kitchen has everything you can think of - just keep looking, it's there in one of the drawers. It's a very comfortable house with a lot of style! I think the photos here, while completely accurate, understate the charm of this house.

We cooked, snacked, barbequed, hung out, read books, napped, played cards and caught up on several months' worth of doings. Walked on the beach and down the friendly neighborhood road, bird watched (so many!!) and generally enjoyed being away from responsibilities and civilization for a short while. Next time would bring a kite!

The local supermarket is very convenient and well-stocked. The Oostburg Bakery should not be missed!

On our last night we watched a thunderstorm over the lake - wow! Everyone left happy and rejuvenated (well, not happy, since we had to leave!) Julie was great to communicate with all through the renting process - a pleasure to work with. This house is only one hour from Milwaukee and less than two hours from Madison - I'm surprised that it ever has a vacancy.

The one-level design of the house would work well for families with small children or older relatives.

Already trying to figure out how to plan a return family rendezvous at this great house.

Owner's Response: Thank you J.F guest for such a fantastic write up. You completely captured in your review what Oostburg offers. You were a lucky guest to be there for a "lake storm" that is very rare and very special. So glad for your family to experience the spectacular light show over the lake. Thank you so very much for choosing our place, and the FANTASTIC review. We are so very lucky to have such special guests like you. I hope you do come back one day. we would love to have you anytime. Five stars for this guest across the board. :) Thank you again. JK

Great getaway with a spectacular view

  • 5 of 5

The house is amazing to sit back and relax and enjoy the heart of Wisconsin. Weather you are enjoying the outdoors, going to a Packer game, fishing out of Port Washington, this house is in the center of everything. It is very well kept and I want to thank the owner for our entire stay. She is very personal and informative. Best ownership of a VRBO I have ever stayed at.

Beautiful, quiet lakeside retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at this private, well-equipped home right on the lake. It was nice to hear the waves crashing and to have such a short walk to the beach! Great views! Julie was very helpful, too.

Highly recommend this wonderful property. It is modern, convenient, relaxing, steps from the water.

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place to relax and unwind. The house is a modern ranch with no steps to speak of, and just a stones throw from a beautiful sandy beach.

One of the two baths has a very nice arrangement with an outside entrance to come into the bath without tracking sand and water throughout the property. The kitchen is fine, we didn’t cook much, but we could have easily. There were plenty of pans, utensils and dishes, even a meat thermometer which we used. There are lots of nice restaurants an easy drive from the house. The three bedrooms have very comfortable mattresses and pillows. They also have plantation shutters so they can be made very dark.

We loved the huge windows overlooking the lake with two comfy chairs right in front of the windows. My daughter’s favorite room was the dining room, every time we used it she commented how charming and cozy it is. That room also has large windows overlooking the water, a huge table and seating for eight.

There is a 3 level deck with plenty of chairs and benches for seating. And there is an awning to help with the early sun. We thought that was a very nice touch. We had brought our own deck covering, but didn’t use it at all.

The clean beach is great for walking, building sand castles or swimming in the clear water. You can walk in either direction for miles. If you want to walk in the shade there a nice shady lane behind the house. There are also miles of bike paths which my son in law used regularly. Oh, and the neighbors are very nice and friendly. A neighbor helped jump one of our cars the morning we left because there was an electrical problem.

If you like going to a bakery, there is one in Oostburg as well as the Piggly Wiggly for any groceries. A Trarget and Walmart are relatively close by too. The location is wonderful, right off the highway. You will truly enjoy relaxing time in this wonderful property no matter what your favorite vacation activities.

Beautiful views & something for everyone

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we have stayed at this property. I couldn't wait to rebook after our amazing stay last year.

We came with a grandparent, teenage kids, and our dog. The views and walks on the beach are great for the adults, and there is swimming and lawn sports (we brought our croquet and badminton set) for the kids.

The house is in great shape and so clean. The beds are really comfortable, and there is sleeping for up to 8.

The owner, Julie, has always been very helpful and responsive. We highly recommend this property!
