Ellison Bay house description
CLASSIC DOOR COUNTY YEAR- ROUND ARTIST'S HOME.
Wonderful, private winter wonderland; cross country ski right out the door!
This totally private, four-acre, wooded lot is the site of this fabulous year-round home. Originally a Norwegian barn, this home has been reconstructed and added onto, resulting in a total of three bedrooms and two baths and another separate suite with bath. Owner is an artist and she has an art library and large suite suitable for painting and drawing. Serious scholars bring their manuscripts up here; good friends love to congregate here, finding the location a good mix of art galleries and restaurants, with outstanding quiet nights for great sleeping. Yogis tell me they find the spaces excellent for practicing and meditating.
Within one mile to The unique Pioneer Store, where you will find anything you have forgotten to bring!
Bicyclists will love the short jaunts to beaches; hardier bicyclists will love the hilly, longer routes!
Due to excessive wear and tear on the house by children, owner has decided to limit the house to adult guests. There are MANY houses available to families; sadly, my house has sustained too much damage.

Restful and Convenient
Restful and Convenient
We enjoyed our restful weekend in Door County at this beautiful getaway cabin. The kitchen is so well-equipped we were able to make and enjoy our meals and snacks without searching for needed gadgets, pots and pans. We loved sitting at the counter (with enough stools for everyone) sharing stories and camaraderie. The main room of the cabin has many cozy sofas and chairs to keep everyone comfy late into the evening. We appreciated that the cabin is close to town yet so secluded it feels very private.

My husband and I have been staying in Door County for 27 years. Whytefyshe is our favorite place to stay. If you like peace and quiet and do not need to be connected to your phone 24/7 you will enjoy the beautiful charming home. The house is huge and clean. We like to spend the morning hiking at Newport State Park along Lake Michigan. You can also bike all around the tip of the thumb with very little traffic. Our favorite thing to do is to take the ferry to Washington Island to bike and then head over to Rock Island to tour the restored lighthouse. There is a nice fire pit out in the meadow next to the house to have bonfires and cook s'more's at night. It's a very relaxing property to get away from it all.

Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: As a young girl, I loved property; any kind of property,vacant land or tiny cottage. I grew up to be an artist, mother and eventually a real estate agent specializing in distinctive properties.
Why the Owner Chose Ellison Bay:
This home appealed to me immediately due to its site: the White Pines, the orientation to the sun, the circular drive. It seems to have always been in the back of my imagination; it was love at first sight despite having many structural drawbacks.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Screened in porches really appeal to me, and this one has a porch suitable for 8 chairs/gliders and a table. I can watch deer saunter through the field, see the little ears of fox as they pursue voles in the grass, watch brazen coyotes run in threesomes through the field. No other humans are visible, just nature! And yet, one mile away is the darling Pioneer Store, which amazingly stocks everything I may have forgotten to include for my stay! Mink River Conservancy is very nearby as well.
