About the property

Multiple bedrooms, fireplaces, and baths make this ideal for group get-aways.

The 10,000 square foot Castino Lakeview Mansion sits high atop a bluff with breathtaking views of Lake Michigan. It's just steps down to the expansive beach and marina view, with sand volleyball nets and fire pits. The house combines the feel of yesteryear's opulence with all the modern amenities. The home was built in 1912 by a coal and shipping baron JP Reiss on the Great Lakes, and he spared no expense. The features include mahogany trim, barreled dining room ceiling, and ornamental plasters, along with iron, stone and brickwork. There are 9 bedrooms in the main house, including a variety of bunks and sleeper sofas, so it can comfortably sleep a combination of children and adults up to a total of 24. (There are two additional bedrooms in the coach house also available for rent, including a bath, kitchen and family room.) The main house has 9 bathrooms, 11 fireplaces, 11 flat screen TV's, Wi-Fi and an outdoor patio fire table. There is a full kitchen (plus a kitchenette on the third floor), along with a gas grill on the veranda overlooking Lake Michigan, the beach and the lighthouse on the point.

The lower level is a playground for young and old, including a full mahogany bar, foosball, ping pong, billiards, plus laundry facilities. There's no need to ever leave the house, the grounds nor the beach.

But if you want to venture out...There's plenty to do in Sheboygan, selected as the number one place to raise a family in America by Bloomberg's Business Week and Reader's Digest. It's also known as the 'Malibu of the Midwest,' and Surf Sheboygan is an appropriate motto! Wind surfing, yolo boarding, kite surfing, motor boating, sailing, charter fishing and good old fashioned swimming are great ways to take advantage of Mother Nature's gift. Want to go exploring by water? We have 4 kayaks available for your use. Three blocks south on the lakefront is an exceptional YMCA, and a mile down on the lakefront is an indoor water park with day passes available year round. Near the water park is a row of boutiques, and across the way is the river walk, with restaurants/bars, shops and fishermen (and their catches) galore.

Heading west from the mansion is the quaint yet full-service town of Sheboygan. The Weil Performing Arts Center, the Kohler Art Center and a fabulous children's museum are just a brisk walk away. Plenty of fine dining options as well as pub grub are also within walking distance and certainly within biking distance. We have 6 bikes on the premises for your use, with additional bikes available through local rental shops. Hiking at the Kohler State Park is another active endeavor, along with cross country skiing on the trails in town or at the Kettle Moraine State Park Trails.

If GOLF is your thing, this is the place for you! Our location is extremely convenient for accessing world class golf, including The American Club at Kohler, The Bull and Whistling Straits. Road America Racing in Elkhart Lake is nearby. And the list goes on! The bottom line is that there is plenty to do, with a welcoming, charming and relaxing home to return to at night. You can throw burgers on the grill, order out for pizza, or hire a local chef to cater your meals for the ultimate in relaxation.

There's something for everyone--from swimming to golf, from spas to sports! You'll feel like royalty as well as right at home at the mansion. Come enjoy this unique get-away with family, on a corporate retreat, with your golfing buddies--the possibilities are endless!
