House, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, 3 Sleeps
Your chance to live on the water! Toft's Point West is a cozy,secluded one bedroom cottage on 200 feet of rocky Green Bay shore with open views to Green Island and Chamber's Island. The cottage is in the country apart from any town or village. You may experience any type of weather to color your stay. No sunset is the same and the property is a photographer's paradise with resident blue herons,white pelicans, bald eagles, pileated woodpeckers and other birdlife attracted to this quiet spot. For this, no firearms, firecrackers or jet skis are allowed. This is a smoke-free cottage. The cottage is fully insulated with furnace for use in the cooler weather. The fireplace insert in the living room is unavailable for use by guests. There is a fire pit on the beach for use by guests. Firewood is furnished.
The property is located off a half circle lane at 6545 Monument Point Lane, 11 miles north of Sturgeon Bay and 6 miles south of Egg Harbor. There are windows affording water views from every room and a large deck accessed off the dining and livingroom facing the water. The addition features a full kitchen/dining area with plenty of light from breakfast through sunset. Flatscreen tv and wireless internet add comfort to your stay.
Lawn and gardens surround the cottage. April starts off with naturalizing daffodils, crocus and tulips, the return of migratory ducks and white pelicans. May continues as the woods display a carpeting of trillium and other native wildflowers. Each season is unique. Availability spring-fall.
About the Owner
Both my husband and I work fulltime and live next door. The cottage has been in the family since the 1960s. Most of the neighbors have been owners for almost as long. We enjoyed the cottage with our children since we moved back to Door County in 1983. In 2001, the cottage was totally gutted with the 350 sq. ft. kitchen added. In 2007, we built a home next door and began renting the cottage. We still care for it as our home and truly want each guest to have a memorable stay.

Our Stays at Toft's Point WestOur Stays at Toft's Point West
We have absolutely loved our times at this beautiful lakeside cottage.
Windows looked out on the water and woods from every room. We went to bed at night listening to waves lapping on the rocky shoreline and wind blowing in the treetop and woke to the sun shining in our windows. At breakfast indoors (at the kitchen table set when we arrived with a tablecloth and a vase of fresh flowers) or outdoors (at a spacious wooden table on the deck) we could watch the multitude of birds flying by or visiting the feeders. We have seen a pileated woodpecker, hummingbirds, pelicans, blue jays, goldfinches, sea gulls, cardinals, robins, white-breasted and red-breasted nuthatches, great blue heron, chickadees, mourning doves, downy woodpeckers, rose- breasted grosbeaks, mallards, and more. Deer, chipmunks and squirrels visited the feeders, and we saw wild turkeys strolling down the road. Beautifully-tended, bright-colored flowers surrounded the cottage and spilled out from hanging baskets. We were even told that the ripe tomatoes hanging from the tomato plants were available for us to pick. There were lots of chairs and benches on the deck or going down to the beach inviting you to sit and read or just watch the sun sparkling on the water.
Everything in the cottage was very clean and very comfortable. The atmosphere was open and airy and filled with light. A washer and dryer allowed us to do laundry during our longer stays if we wanted. The bathroom was spacious and comfortable and the large shower was very nice. (No bathtub).
The kitchen was fully equipped and allowed us to cook meals large and small. We could eat inside with a lovely view out to the water, or outside on the deck or at a picnic table under the trees. We could sit out on the bench by the dock overlooking the water.
While we enjoy hiking in all of Door County’s state parks and sampling our favorite restaurants, we felt we had to hurry back in the evenings lest we miss the spectacular sunsets that set all the rooms of the cottage aglow as the sun sank into the water.
Mark and Trudy and their friendly pet cats and dog were wonderfully welcoming and eager to make our stay comfortable. If anything goes amiss, they are right next door.
Our only regret is that the cottage is not large enough to bring our children and grandchildren with us. We would love to share it with them.
