Beautiful Location!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely week here at the Gray Gull Cottage seeing sunsets over the lake and seeing the stars come up as we roasted marshmallows at the lakeside fire pit. The beds/pillows were incredibly comfortable and the space was quite comfortable for our family of 6 adults, 1 child and 1 small dog. It was pretty clean and the kitchen had great pans and plenty of utensils. The property has a great grill that we made dinners on and nice fireplace to keep us warm at night. Our only drawback was the water smelling like sulfur, which we managed with buying gallons of water, but made us smell a little weird after a shower. Other than that, this is a great house with an owner who replied to me quickly in correspondence, a great price and a beautiful spot to appreciate some GORGEOUS sunsets over the lake. I would highly recommend it!!!

Neat house! So many cool spots to relax.

  • 5 of 5

We wish we could live here… Didn't have enough time to take advantage of all aspects of this relaxing destination… upper and lower lake-view porches, completely private deck a few feet from the water, nice bon fire pit, large, comfortable living room and a sauna!

Corresponding with the owner prior to booking was 100% smooth.

Unique Getaway - Gorgeous evening sunsets

  • 5 of 5

The Gray Gull treated us to a quick, two-nights in beautiful Egg Harbor. The location is perfect if you are looking for privacy and a woodsy retreat that is also within 15 minutes of Egg Harbor and Fish Creek. Paul and Barbara keep a welcoming home for their guests. We especially enjoyed the evening sunsets and beach fire pit and patio. Sipping some Door Peninsula Pinot Grigio never tasted so good :)

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.
