Are you looking for the perfect relaxing and beautiful getaway for your family or a group of friends. Looks no further than “The Asher” a gorgeous vacation property on the shores of Lake Michigan. Located just two hours north of Chicago and an hour from Milwaukee in the small town of Belgium, Wisconsin this property will not disappoint.
From the moment you enter you will feel relaxed and at ease. The modern yet cozy decor is perfect for this lakeside paradise. The large windows give such a great view, you almost feel as if you can feel the breeze coming off the lake even when you are inside. Each room is curated with the guests needs in mind.
The kitchen is a dream, featuring a gourmet gas range, a large island with prep sink, and a variety of high-end appliances, including an espresso maker. Wall-to-wall windows across the first-floor allow light to flood throughout living and dining room and an elegant gas-fireplace provides the perfect place to relax and recharge throughout your stay.
There are three bedrooms, all with lake views. The beds are cozy and comfortable and dressed with French linen bedding. The rooms are decorated with beautiful unique art, antiques and vintage pieces from all over the USA. Our children adored the upstairs bedroom, the large bunk beds and their own sitting area had them instantly won over. The two full bathrooms include walk-in showers and the upstairs bathroom has a large soaking tub.
It keeps getting better as you walk out the lakeside door. An excellent entertaining area awaits complete with a solo stove, comfortable chairs and a table for dining. The gas stove provides the perfect place to grill up an enjoyable lakeside dinner. The property sits on nearly 200 feet of private shoreline. The kids had so much space to run around, play frisbee, and just enjoy being kids! There is also a large parking area that was the perfect safe area for our kids to play on their scooters while we sat and relaxed lakeside.
The sunrises were absolutely beautiful, and we highly recommend waking up for them, the sunsets cast cotton candy sky over the Lake Michigan, and we loved watching boats and ships sail by. We also had a lot of fun exploring the area – More about that next 😉

What to do in the Area:
Walk to the Nearby Beach
Just down the street from The Asher is a small area where you can easily access the water. It’s rocky right at the property so this is an easier access if you wish to kayak, paddle board, or swim. Sandy and calm, it was the perfect area for our kids to play in the shallows and build sandcastles. This was a perfect short walk and simple adventure.
Explore the Port Washington Marina
Explore the Marina, check out all the cool fishing boats, maybe book a charter fishing trip if you are interested. There is also a really cool walk out to the lighthouse that is a must do! Make sure to look into the water along the way, we saw many schools of fish that were gathered near the walkway.
Check out the shops in Port Washington
Port Washington has some fun shops to check out. We enjoyed walking the main drag and stopping in at many small local shops. We also picked up meat at the meat market, Bernie’s Fine Meats, to pick up some steaks to grill when we got back to The Asher and it was delicious, highly recommend.
Have Dinner at The Twisted Willow
The Twisted Willow is SO GOOD. My kids are still talking about this restaurant, they like fancy places. lol. But really, this place is higher end, but so worth it. According to their website they serve, “Heirloom recipes & craft cocktails with a modern American twist.” We were all extremely satisfied with our meals, many of the menu items include locally grown foods and you could seriously taste the freshness.
Have Ice Cream or Donuts at Frankies Ice Cream
Located right across the street from The Twisted Willow and making it a convenient spot for dessert is Frankies Ice Cream. This is an adorable 1969 Airstream Safari made into an ice cream and donut food truck. They have a variety of flavors of ice cream, and they have some really fun mini donuts options. We opted for the maple bacon mini donuts, and they were AWESOME!
We loved our stay at The Asher and developed a new love for the east coast of Wisconsin. I highly recommend this property!
Much Love & Happy Travels,
