Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 3 Baths (Sleeps 12)

Anam Cara, 'Soul Friend' in Gaelic, is truly a unique space. Sitting in the Black River Forest with its own 160 feet of Lake Michigan beach frontage, it offers unequaled opportunities for rest and recreation. Consider a large (sleeps 13) comfortable cottage on the lake and bring the whole family - or even go with another family for a week of unparalleled fun and relaxation. Bring your bicycles for miles and miles of picturesque riding.

Sit on the lakefront deck, patio or rooftop deck and watch the sunrise as it creates a palette of red, purple and aqua. Launch your kayak or sailboat for a day on the water or bring your small-size power boat, launch it at the nearby marina and 'beach' it in front of Anam Cara for your stay. Walk less than a mile down the beach to Kohler-Andrae State Park for some of the Midwest's most beautiful hiking, or simply swim and sunbathe your days away. Sit around the firepit in the evening, enjoying the sound of waves and the Wisconsin night.

A large library, recreation room with a pool table, and sunroom offer further opportunities for solitary serenity or group fun. Anam Cara's new fully equipped kitchen and dining room with a wet bar will allow you to practice those gourmet skills. Or, after a hike in the adjacent Kohler preserve, fire up the grill for some of Sheboygan's famous bratwurst. Prepare to be renewed at this forested retreat on the water's edge.

Another wonderful "family beach week" at Anam Cara

  • 5 of 5

This was the fifth year our family has gathered from different states to spend a week together at the beach in the summer, and AnamCara has become a treasured tradition for our four generations. This beautiful area on Lake Michigan holds history for our family because in the 1960s my parents brought my sisters and I to vacations in cabins that are now within the Terri Andre State Park just a short walk north along the beach. In 2008 when we first found Anam Cara we could not believe it was possible to re-live those precious memories, and share them with our new generation. The house is perfect for multiple families, with lots of space for relaxing together, or finding your own nook to read or nap. The artwork and decor in the house is perfect for the beach, and the owner has provided absolutely everything you could need to enjoy both the house and the beach. The gardens, patio, and yard are really lovely, and the beach is so close you don't have to go anywhere to feel you are really on vacation. After all the years we have been enjoying this amazing gift we finally met the owner this year, and now we understand why the house feels so warm and welcoming. I would recommend this rental to anyone, young or old, who loves the beach and is looking for a place with character and lots of space. This is an absolutely marvelous experience.

Spectacular Vacation in Sheboygan

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just celebrated our 40th Anniversary at this abolutely fabulous home. The location was wonderful with specacular sunrises. The home was impeccable and fully equipped with everything you can imagine. Although the photos were great, they didn't do the house justice!! The living areas were huge and comfortable & the kitchen nicer than the one we have at home. The private beach, gardens & patio were absolutely beautiful. Our family joined us and all 10 of us were comfortably situated in the many lovely bedrooms. I WILL recommend this home to anyone seeking a delightful vacation in Wisconsin. The city of Sheboygan hosts MANY wonderful restaurants, fishing, boating, golf,shopping, biking trails, spas and the beautiful Kohler Art Museum. This is a five + star rental and we can't wait to go back!!!!
