Property Details

Updated: Oct 26, 2016
Private-peaceful wooded grounds, lakefront cottage, outdoor gas grill & fire pit

We've spruced-up the Cottage for 2016: new kitchen appliances and floor, bedrooms refreshed with different furniture and then added country living decor all around! Still charming, comfortable and private. 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...

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!

Hidden Gem!!

  • 5 of 5

This cozy cabin is truly a hidden gem, the sunsets are priceless and you really felt secluded from the outside world. It is in a great location if you want to explore the Door County area. Our kids loved swinging in the hammock and making s'mores over the fire. Thank you for sharing, and we will definitely be staying here when we return to Door County.

Absolutely beautiful

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at several places in Door County and have to say this has been my favorite! The cottage is adorable and very clean and comfortable. The views are stunning, especially during sunset. We enjoyed having fires in the fire pit and sitting in the adirondack chairs watching the water. We found it to be very peaceful and quiet. It was very easy to access all of Door County from the cottage. Thank you for having us...we will be back again!
