Lakeside Retreat Perfect for Racers & Golfers

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This rental property is ideal for racers and spectators attending events at world famous Road America (two miles away), or for a great week of golfing here in Sheboygan county.

Road America is internationally known for top notch road racing - two motorcycle weekends, NASCAR Xfinity, the Continental / IMSA / Weather Tech sports car races, three major Vintage Races, the SCCA June Sprints and the Verizon Indy Car races take place every year along with numerous car club and driving school events. Our house ensures that the rest of the family will have an enjoyable time while the racer is indulging him / herself at the track.

If you've got a group together for a week of golf, Sheboygan County, Wisconsin is rated as one of the best golf areas in the country. All within a 20 - 30 minute drive, Whistling Straits, Blackwolf Run and The Bull at Pinehurst Farms are the most notable of at least 13 area courses. Right out the back door is the scenic 18 hole Crystal Lake Course.

In the front is Crystal Lake itself. Crystal Lake is a beautiful 150 acres with a maximum depth over 60 feet and perfectly clear water. It's great for swimming, fishing, canoeing, kayaking and so on. Please be aware that the swimming from our pier is not ideal as the bottom is quite soft. We usually canoe to the nearby point to swim. If you need big water for sailing, charter fishing or other types of recreation, Lake Michigan is only about 25 minutes to the east.

The Kettle Moraine area of Wisconsin is home to some fantastic parks. At 30,000 acres, the Kettle Moraine State forest has great cross country skiing, snowshoe trails, mountain biking & just about every other outdoor activity you could imagine - this is 20 minutes away. Kohler-Andrae state park is on the shore of Lake Michigan just south of Sheboygan for sand dunes & beaches (again 20-25 minutes). The spectacular Sheboygan Marsh county park is 10 minutes away as is the Old Plank Road Trail for biking.

If airplanes are your passion, Oshkosh's famed Wittman Field and the EAA Airventure Museum is only about an hour's drive away. Nearby Sheboygan County Airport is about 10 miles away.

At the end of the day, relax on the large deck overlooking the lake, or the smaller one in back overlooking the golf course. The family room/kitchen are very open and conducive to entertaining. The master bedroom has a patio door onto the deck overlooking the golf course. There is a small fire ring in the backyard.

Everything you need is here - two bathrooms, full laundry room, garage, full kitchen with all appliances and utensils including a dishwasher and grill. All towels & bedding are provided. Additional amenities include a flat panel tv with satellite, dvd player, fireplace, playing cards, board games & even a blender so you can have margaritas on the deck - we've tried to think of everything!

Please keep in mind that this is a non smoking property and sorry but no pets allowed.

About Steve

My wife and I purchased this property to use for race weekends when we are at the track. Now with two young boys, it's a great retreat for us any time of year.

Steve purchased this house in 2005

Why Steve chose Plymouth

The location is ideal - close to Elkhart Lake, Plymouth and Sheboygan. So much activity nearby, but a nice relaxing place in the middle of it all.

What makes this house unique

Walk out the back door and you're on the golf course - walk out the front door and you're on the water. So much to do and it's all so easily accessible!

Good for Sunny or Rainy Days! Great Location for Road America Fans - a couple miles from track

  • 4 of 5

Totally enjoyed our stay. The property was clean and maintained. I would recommend this property - the house is very comfortable. Open kitchen, eating and living area works great and well stocked for the on the go group or for cooking for a group. Also great to have the gas grill to use. Having a wrap around deck was nice also. We were pleasantly surprised that Road America was so close. After a long day out it was nice to have a short drive and come back to relax, watch tv or movies or go out to the nearby restaurants. Unfortuantely we didn't use the canoes that were there for our use. Lake looked inviting. Quick walk or drive to the Lakehouse Bar/Restaurant for Pizza which was really good. A lunch and dinner at Siebkens Resort in Elkhart Lake was great.along with a dinner at 52 Stafford Hotel. Also enjoyed going to the Kohler Design Center. Next time we will spend more time seeing more of the area.
