About Susan Brandstetter
The cottages have been in our family since the 1920s. I grew up in Chicago but spent my summers, weekends and holidays here at the beach. I moved here permanently in 1990 to assume management of the properties.
Susan Brandstetter purchased this Cottage in 1924
Beautiful views and quaint cottage charm.
We had an amazing time recharging our batteries just listening to sound of the waves crashing. When the said on the beach location they truly ment it!! The view was spectacular, nice and quiet (most of the time besides our upstairs neighbor) all around, and great lodging facilities. One thing to be mindful is the steepness and amount of stairs to get to the cottage. Not for the faint of heart... Looking forward to bring the whole family back and staying in one of their other larger properties!! Thank you Susan for your hospitality!!! -Amanda and Shawn
I can’t say enough good about this studio on the beach. Location was perfect. Studio / accommodations were top-notch. Very relaxing. Beautiful view. Couldn’t have asked for anything better. Hope to return. (The only thing to note is be prepared for the stairs. Going down to unit was a breeze, but the return trip up makes you notice whether you are physically fit or not so much. ).
Beautiful view..... right on the beach!
The view is beautiful! Cottage was clean and fairly well stocked. Within an easy drive to the Parks to hike, and to restaurants for dinner. Tip,,,,take a flashlight if you are going to be out at night. The walk from the parking area to the cottage is a challenge without one. Very dark and the 50 steps and walk thru the sand are a little treacherous in the dark. VRBO states washer and dryer. Did not see one. Overall, good for the price and location.
We had an amazing time. I can’t imagine renting this place and not enjoying your stay. The unit was clean and the perfect size for our small family (2 adults and 2 young kids). Ericka showed us to our place on arrival and was friendly and showed us where we could find everything. The unit had coffee filters! I have rented units in the past in other locations and my main annoyance is that they don’t have filters. It’s a pet peeve of mine. There were kayaks, life vests, chairs, umbrellas, and a Lilly pad that were there for renters to use. We took full advantage of it all. The beach was fantastic and so close. We spent our days in the sand and our nights with the windows open listening to the waves. We will be back for sure.
Refreshing and Beautiful
Wonderful place, magically immersed in lakes expanse which surrounds all your senses.
A delicious little spot, immaculately clean, comfortable and well suited for our family's every need. We would recommend this to anyone seeking both solitude and surrender to all the lake and cottage's many amenities. Thank you for a great experience.
Cozy studio that was perfect for our small family with a wonderful view of the lake! Used the fire pit every night and watched the sun set over the Chicago skyline. Thank you, Susan!
