About the property

Luxury Within Steps of Lake Michigan And Woods

The Cottage is a beautifully decorated French Country bungalow located on 7.5 acres of a privately owned compound. Miles of Lake Michigan sand is simply steps away through a walk of the stunning gardens. Just up a few stairs you will find yourself on the shores of Lake Michigan. Visitors often remark that it is as vast and magnificent as any ocean. It truly earns its place among the Great Lakes. Beach chairs and sand toys are available for a relaxing day of play in the sand.

The property is home to 4 acres of wooded hiking trails through your own secluded cedar forest. No matter the season the adventure of exploring the woods is a highlight for visitors.

In the Spring, Summer and Fall, the fabulous outdoor grill is available for your cooking pleasure with plenty of outdoor seating. Inside the cottage, a coffee maker, mini fridge and toaster allow the conveniences of any hotel - but with luxury, views and comfort that is unsurpassed.

Located north of Milwaukee and just 15 minutes south of historic Kohler, there is plenty to do for those looking to stay busy. However, if you are looking to do absolutely nothing in a luxurious private setting than The Cottage is where you need to be.

As a romantic getaway, a charming stay for a girls weekend, or a family with children The Cottage at Casa del Lago is an ideal home away from home.

The alternate name for Casa del Lago is The Sanctuary, with good reason. This is a property like none other. The smell of cedar, the wind in the trees, the lapping and/or roar of the waves, with the morning birds, will transform your body and mind during your stay.

We're pretty sure your first time visiting The Cottage at Casa del Lago will not be your last... Come and find out for yourself!

About George

I’ve been in the creative field since my early days in business, whether conceptualizing and creating commercials for some of America’s iconic brands, to designing, remodeling and decorating exceptional properties.

Having searched for the perfect lake front property for what seemed like an eternity, I came across this property, I knew this was it, and was inspired to call it Casa del Lago. We developed a theme of construction and design specific to each of the property’s 5 buildings and cohesively tied them together to blend with the natural environment of the sandy beach and the beautiful scented cedar forest.

George purchased this cottage in 2008

Why George chose Oostburg

When we decided that he wanted to look for a lake house, I was skeptical and hesitant. With two young children at the time and plenty of property maintenance with our home in Chicago, I couldn't imagine taking on another burden.

We had looked in Indiana and Michigan to no avail, but when a friend invited us to Kohler for a visit - we decided to look at some homes along the Lake on our way to their place.

I could hardly contain myself when walking the grounds with the realtor - it was more than we could have ever imagined. As I told my husband then, do not waste another minute looking elsewhere, this was the place.

You will undoubtedly understand why when you come. Casa del Lago has been a blessing to our family not a burden and one we are thankful to be able to share with you.

What makes this cottage unique

You won't leave the same as you arrived. It is impossible to walk the property, breath in the cedar scented air and hear the constant lapping of the lake and not be changed. You will sleep deeper, feel calmer and find that that the evasive answers to your questions are answered in the space that can only be described as a sanctuary.

Beautiful property

  • 4 of 5

The property is immaculate! The cottage exceeded our expectations in terms of style and cleanliness. We took our 3 kids and it perhaps wasn't the best suit for them (7 and under) so I wouldn't suggest younger children. The beach was lovely and our favorite part. My husband by chance brought along his bow to practice shoot and there was a range for him setup! We were a bit caught off guard by the proximity of the property and neighbors. The cottage is actually not beach front (only main house) and you are really right next to the main house and studio. Had we known this we probably wouldn't have stayed as a family who prefers complete privacy.

Flying is not ideal for my family if 5 but I really wanted to have a beach vacation, this did not disappoint. It is a cute, clean cottage (guest house) on very well kept and maintained beachfront property. It was better than the ocean if you ask me. Clear, blue, fresh water with soft sand. Our children absolutely loved it. The cottage itself is small but beautiful. We would stay here again! If you have small children I might suggest an airbed for huge master or monitor due to the sleeping areas being on opposite ends of the cottage.

Charming and Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a very relaxing 5 day stay at the cottage. The cottage is comfortable and cozy. We absolutely loved the beach (white sand!) and having fires in the evening. The entire property is beautiful. It was a wonderful time. George & his family were gracious and made sure we had everything we needed.

Beautiful property with amazing beach to play on and a finely finished cottage

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful and relaxing time with our 3 kids on the white sand beach. The property is breathtaking with all of the tall trees, gardening, and landscaping. The cottage interior finishes are well above our expectations, especially the tile shower. This is an ideal place to unwind and be refreshed!

Beautiful spot for a romantic getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderful stay at Casa de Lago. The gardens are beautiful and the beach was very private and fantastic. George is very accommodating and the cottage on the grounds is impeccably maintained. We look forward to renting the cottage again!

Casa del Lago is the perfect location for any traveler. If you are looking simply for a little cottage in the woods for some private time for yourself or loved ones, you will be refreshed and rested from your stay. For those looking to golf, shop or pamper themselves with all that Kohler has to offer, Casa del Lago is the ideal place to return to after a day out. If Milwaukee's museums, cultural attractions, etc. are what draws you to the dairy state - the cottage at Casa del Lago provides a cozy resting place after a long day of sightseeing.

Just south in Cedar Grove - there is wine tasting and charming shops.

Downtown Sheboygan and the lakefront offers wonderful dining and local attractions.
