About the property

Private-peaceful wooded grounds, lakefront cottage, outdoor gas grill & fire pit

We've spruced-up the Cottage in 2016: kitchen has a new fridge & micro, more storage space for your groceries and a new floor; new mini blinds all around, bedrooms refreshed with different furniture, new sofa sleeper in living room, new wall mounted TV/DVD player, and added country living decor all around! Still very charming, more comfortable and the best in location privacy. Your waterfront cottage sits on a bluff overlooking the Green Bay side of the Door Peninsula. This darling hideaway is approximately 7 miles north of the town of Sturgeon Bay. Your cottage is lakeside, secluded from the main road. No noise or lights from town, either! Magnificent sunsets are yours to enjoy every night. The vast, private 150 foot shoreline is accessible by a natural stone walkway and awaits your quite moments. Make your own memories here again and again...

A wonderful, quiet and cozy weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is very clean, comfortable, and right near the water! Steve (our host) was welcoming and helpful throughout our three days in Sturgeon Bay, even providing dinner recommendations and wood for a late night bonfire. Easy check in and check out process with a code to a key box. Well-stocked kitchen, so no need to bring utensils, grill gear, plates, etc. You can't go wrong with this place!

Great stay and value for Door County!

  • 5 of 5

The Bay Shore Cottage met our expectations and worked well for our mom and daughter weekend. Steve was great to work with and answered all of our questions in a timely manner. The kitchen had all of the things we needed to prepare our meals. The view and location of the cottage was perfect for exploring the Door County area and we would definitely consider staying here again if we ever return to the area. Overall it was a great value and we really enjoyed our stay. Thank you.

Perfect Weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect cottage for a quiet weekend getaway. The cottage is right on the water and provides for some beautiful views of the sunset. Had it been a little warmer, we would have taken advantage of the hammock! The cottage is isolated from other homes, so it is the perfect escape if you are looking for some quiet time. I found the location to be perfect for driving to all the other towns and activities that Door County has to offer. Would stay here again.

Home Sweet Home with one of the best views in Door

  • 5 of 5

I love coming to "my cottage in Door" every year. The beautiful piece of property is nestled in the woods and right on the water. I have my own private sunset celebration every evening! Lovingly cared for, peaceful and private with a beautiful trailed land preserve right across the street - it is perfect!
