About Linda Verbecken

I am a business owner in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. My firm's business offices are on the first floor of the Upstairs Downtown building.

Linda Verbecken purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Linda Verbecken chose Sheboygan

I love this 135 year old building because of its history and construction. It is a rare original brick commercial building in downtown Sheboygan. Since the little apartment upstairs was not being used for our business, we invested in a complete rehabilitation while retaining as much of the original character as possible.

What makes this apartment unique

Upstairs Downtown is a fully furnished apartment with luxury amenities located in the heart of downtown Sheboygan. You can walk to restaurants, museums, the library, our performing arts center, Lake Michigan and local businesses. We are 5 miles from the Kohler resort the American Club, and 15 miles from Elkhart Lake and Road America racetrack. Sheboygan County offers FOUR championship golf courses! This year, our amazing John Michael Kohler Arts Center presents 14 outdoor concerts with lots of other activities, on Thursdays and weekends - check it out at

We hope to see you in Sheboygan soon!

As other reviewers indicated, the apartment was just wonderful. The owners did a wonderful job in restoring/remodeling the unit. Comfortable, clean, great location ... good restaurants with in walking distance. There is a deck on the roof top that provides a great place for morning coffee or an evening night cap. The snacks were a fun surprise. When we return to the area, this will be our first option. Can't say enough good things about this unit.

Owner's Response: To all of our 2015 guests who left reviews in our guest book and online: the best thing about having a rental is getting to meet great people from all walks of life. It has been a rewarding and fun two years since we began renting Upstairs Downtown Sheboygan. I am so happy that our guests enjoy the apartment and absorb the old fashioned atmosphere we hoped to preserve in renovation. There have been some surprises too (resulting in a new door lock and an AC repair call) about which our guests were incredibly gracious. Please come back again - Sheboygan is a beautiful, fun place to visit and we will love having you. Thank you for your patronage and kind words! Warmest regards, Linda and Paula

Wonderful apartment, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

If I ever have occasion to stay in the Sheboygan area in the future, this will be the first call I make. The location couldn't be any better - walking distance to some great dining establishments, the Kohler Art Center and numerous small shops and boutiques.

The apartment is very comfortable. The restoration of the unit is tastefully done and the unit itself has every amenity one needs for an enjoyable stay. It was very clean and well stocked with the necessities and had more than a few extras. The owners obviously know what they are doing and are extremely easy to work with.

Terrific little hideaway in the middle of town

  • 5 of 5

This place is terrific - the location in downtown sheboygan is wonderful for exploring and still easily accessible if you need to drive around. I had a seminar in Kohler and this was a PERFECT place to stay instead of the bigger hotels. The bed was incredibly comfy, the shower terrific and no creative comfort was spared - ICE CREAM in the freezer (hooray!), divinely soft sheets, heavenly scented soap, coffee a-plenty, books to read, TV... the place is just adorably decorated and I'm so grateful I had a chance to stay there! I will stay again -AND bring the husband this time!

Great combination of vintage and modern

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed Sheboygan and all the amenities we needed (and more) in this lovely apartment. Both offered the perfect combination of vintage and modern. The apartment was larger than we expected and was very comfortable and tastefully decorated. A bonus was the rooftop deck off the bedroom - even if we weren't outside we enjoyed watching the birds come to the feeder and looking at the colorful flower pots. The location was convenient for easy strolls to shops, restaurants, the lakefront and riverfront. We were able to easily enjoy many of the Independence Day-related activities because of the location. While there is a fire department down the block, we weren't bothered by it in the least - it must have been two days before we even heard a siren. We hope to return.
