Quick getaway

  • 5 of 5
6 of us, 3 couples, wanted a quick getaway up to door county. We inquired about this place on vrbo and got a quick response from Barbara. It is in a great hidden spot with a wonderful view of the lake. We couldn't have asked for better. Barbara was quick to respond to anything we asked. Would recommend to family.

Beautiful vacation destination!

  • 5 of 5
Our family takes an annual trip to Door County and have stayed in multiple locations. We have to say that Gray Gull Cottage has moved to our favorite rental to date. We traveled with a total of 6 adults. The house is very roomy with plenty of seating in the living room, screen porch and bay side deck. We enjoyed waking up to a beautiful view from the master bedroom deck and sound of waves. The house is very private and has all the comforts of home including air conditioning, wireless internet, dishwasher, grill and a well equipped kitchen. We enjoyed a group campfire and s'mores using the large fire pit and a more intimate fire using the smaller clay fireplace on the deck. There was plenty of dry firewood to use. Bikes rides were a favorite morning activity as we biked into Egg Harbor for coffee at the Chocolate Chicken. The side deck was the perfect shelter for them. Great location and cottage. Thank you for sharing it.

I highly recommend the Gray Gull. The booking process with the owner was quick and without a hassle. The cottage itself was very good. Large, clean and comfortable. The kitchen was better than expected. I was surprised how private the cottage is. You are not able to see any neighbors from the house at all, at least in the summer. We had a minor problem while we are at the cottage when we found a good size yellow jacket nest. I e-mailed the the owner and within a few hours they had someone out and the problem was taken care of. All in all my experience was a great cottage and good to deal with owners! I will be back with out a doubt.

Nice getaway to celebrate your wedding anniversary

It has been some years ago since we stayed at the Gray Gull. We were very impressed with the renovations to the home. The kitchen had all new appliances including a dishwasher. The addition of the half bath upstairs was an excellent addition since the bedrooms are upstairs. Didn't bother us that there was not cable TV, internet connection is more important! Local TV stations sufficed. Besides we were too tired in the evening from all the shopping, site seeing, walking & climbing. We really liked the deck down by the water to have cocktails and watch the sunset. We were fortunate that the weather was wonderful Fri, Sat & Sun. It rained Monday on the drive home, but didn't care then. It is really important to us to find a place that accepts pets so we could bring along the dog, our 'fur child'. It was nice to sit on the screened deck off of the kitchen to have morning coffee. At night you can see the lights of Michigan and can watch the big ships come in to Sturgeon Bay. There is a nice deck off of the main bedroom which is nice to sit & relax. You need at least 3 days to see everything in Door County and then some if you decide to go over to Washington Island. Go for a visit - you'll love it.

GReat improvements, pet friendly, reasonable price

Wow! What a difference the major remodel and upgrade to the property since our last stay at the Gray Gull. New frigidare gallery stainless steel refrigerator, dishwasher, oven, and microwave along with beautiful cabinets in the rennovated kitchen. Also great updates to the main bathroom. Our Bedroom had newer mattress and pillows - very comfortable! However, you do need to bring your own sheets and towels.
Wonderful to have access to both a charcoal and gas grill as well as kitchen utensils, pots and pans, paper towels, etc - everything for making breakast/dinner at home.

Beautiful hiking at CAve Point Cty Park and Whitefish Dunes State Park.

A bit windy for our kayaks on this trip, but we enjoyed a beautiful day on the Alpine golf course just down the road b/4 Egg Harbor. Great views if you golf the "blue" course.

The one issue we had was that we could not get Fox TV which happened to have the Packer Opener that week. Also, no Wi Fi at the home, however, access was available right up the road in Carlsville. (I was able to go without the internet for the short stay, but we had to stop at the Roadhouse up the bluff in Carlsville to watch the Packer game.)

I was very impresesed with the significant upgrades to the home. Even with all the improvements, the price is quite reasonable, especially since the are dog friendly. Our yellow lab, Stella was in "doggy heaven" swimming in the bay and "fetching" rocks.

We enjoyed the sauna and traditional scandinavian plunge into the bay. Quite refreshing if you are the adventuresome sort.

Of course, I enjoyed the unique shops and establishments in nearby Egg Harbor Fish Creek, etc.

Hope to go back in the fall. Beautiful time to golf at Peninsula State Park and the end of season sales.

Would recommend to friends who enjoy the beauty of Door CTy. Not recommended for folks looking for a "spa-like" resort.

We discovered the Bay side of Door County

  • 4 of 5
We had never stayed on the Bayside of the Penninsula; We love it. Much warmer water, great swimming and fishing; but our best memories are the susets over the bay...Glorious . We enjoyed sitting on the screen porch over looking the water and having dinner. The cabin has 3 porches overlooking the bay! The interior is very nice with three bedrooms and a sleeping loft where our 5 and 7 year old boys played and slept during our stay. The bedding is and billows are a bit worn and they could stand to be replaced. The house is air conditioned and that was a vacation saver, with temperatures in the 90s.

All and all, we would come back again.
