Clean and cozy
Clean and cozy
We only had a long weekend and lot to do outside of the cabin so we mostly only slept there. Wished we had time to enjoy a fire or cast a line, but events of the weekend did not allow us the time. The place was well kept and clean. Beautiful setting / location. Leka (our labrador) appreciated being welcomed to the property. Only criticism, very bizarre decorating style for a cabin living room area. Looks like someone raided a garage sale at a Victorian bed and breakfast. Found it hard to get comfortable for a little TV time at the end of the long day of being a tourist. Taste is purely subjective and it should not deter someone from choosing Moonlight Bay on this basis unless they were to make the mistake of spending their vacation in front of the TV. Even in foul weather, Door County has too much to offer.

unsurpassed shorebird viewing!
This is a quiet spot near Sturgeon Bay where you can sit, with owner-provided binoculars, and watch pelicans, gulls, terns, sandpipers, kildeers, cranes, kingfishers, egrets and the occasional eagle stop by or fly over. Sunrises are lovely, sunsets tranquil. It's not a place to swim, however -- this is a marshy spot of the bay, although there is a tiny beach not far away. We preferred that because the marshlands attracted the birds. We grilled hot dogs and hamburgers, bought corn from the local farmers and toasted marshmallows almost every night. Cottage is comfortable and more rustic than luxurious, but towels and sheets are nice and beds comfortable. Sleeping arrangements are in an upstairs loft, so you have to come downstairs to use the bathroom at night. We got used to that quickly, though. All the dishes, pans and utensils we needed were there for us. It was a very relaxing week.This was also a great place from which to explore Door County.

Perfect weekend getaway
Perfect weekend getaway
Charming cottage and property. Very reasonable and accommodating owners. We stayed here for our anniversary and had a marvelous weekend. Friday: dinner at Donny's, relax as the fireplace crackles. Saturday: sleep in, hike around cave point, drive up lakeside down bayside, fish boil at the White Gull, and back to the cottage for another fire. Sunday: make some coffee, watch pelicans on the bay, pack up and head home. No worries, Tammy and her folks will take care of you.

We had a great time relaxing at this cute cabin for a New Years getaway. The cottage was very clean and comfortable. Tammy was very accommodating and provided a great atmosphere for our weekend. The fireplace and lovely view was just what we needed! We cannot wait to come back in the summer and enjoy it in warm weather.

Thank you for sharing such a wonderful place. We drank our coffee each morning with the company of, not only our 3 dogs, but swans, pelicans and spawning sturgeon. Each evening we cooked our dinner over an open fire - the perfect way to start the summer. As previous visitors exclaimed, the sleeping arrangements were a slice of heaven - afternoon naps were a luxury we dove into every day. Thank you again for sharing your a little slice of heaven.

Owner response: Thank you so much for your lovely comments! I am so happy that you and your dogs enjoyed Moonlight Magic and had a restful stay. I hope to see you guys at Moonlight Magic in the future. Wishing you a great year ahead.
We enjoyed a relaxing two nights at this cabin. The description is accurate, the place is very clean and well-maintained with nice views from the living area. The beds are all upstairs and slept seven of us very comfortably. It is a bit removed from Sturgeon Bay so plan your shopping trips wisely. The drive to get to the other towns/villages of the Northern Door County area is about 25-30 minutes but a very doable day trip. Fresh cookies were on the table at our arrival, and Tammy and her mother stopped in to make sure we did not have any needs or concerns. I would definitely recommend this property. The owner is very kind and easy to work with.

I definitely recommend Moonlight Magic for a comfortable get-away with beautiful scenery. The place is clean and well kept. We enjoyed the moon rising over the bay several nights while sitting around the fire. Very relaxing and enjoyable.

About the owner: I have been working in the Construction PM/Management field for over 14 years. I currently live and work in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (Middle East). My career takes up most of my time in a day. But when I am not working, I enjoy the outdoors; including swimming, exercising at the gym, riding horses, walking, sitting on the beach and listening to the waves. I love living and being near the water. I like to read books and currently writing my own book. I love to meet new people. I mostly enjoy the quality time with my friends and family. I am adventurous and enjoy learning and trying new activities. When I have the time, I also love to travel. I have a Paso Fino horse, Quatro, which I enjoy riding when I am home. I recently started my business, Snake Island Properties, in November 2009. I have enjoyed the hard work and learning process of all the details to a business. I like challenges and prospering in all that I do everyday.
Why the Owner Chose Sturgeon Bay:
My family and I have been vacationing in this area for over 20+ years, enjoying the winter/summer fishing seasons each year on the Bay of Green Bay (Sand Bay) and camping at Jellystone Park, which is nearby. My family built a home in this neighborhood 10 years ago and have been permanent residents in the last 2 years. My parents have been suggesting for many years that I acquire property in their beautiful and quiet neighborhood in Door County, especially waterfront property, as it is only on rare occasions that this kind of property is 'For Sale' in the neighborhood. So when this property was listed 'For Sale' my parents suggested I consider this home. Since I am living half way across the world, I was able to see the pictures and take the recommendations from my parents. At first glance of the pictures, I knew that this was the ideal home, a quaint log cabin, where others could enjoy while on vacation. Plus, this was a perfect investment for my recently established business. As this has been one of my goals in life to have my own business where I can accomodate others and allow my guests to take pleasure in what I am offering; while always striving to do better!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Enjoy all four seasons at Moonlight Magic. The Door County area has year-round activites for all visitors of any interest. Moonlight Magic has the beautiful waterfront view and is located so close to the water, that the only sounds you will hear are of the waves hitting the shoreline. Since it is located on a point, you will find the local wildlife who make their home in the woods. The area is filled with birch trees and pine trees. Enjoy the 3 sand beaches which are within walking distance to Moonlight Magic. Take a walk or bike around the tree-lined loop and smell the nature of the trees and flowers in the morning (I find the morning is the best time to experience the natural surroundings of the area, as your 5 senses will be over-whelmed). You will notice the friendliness of the locals who will wave and greet you as you pass by. There is a fire pit for night-time enjoyment, as it is located near the water's edge, so you can enjoy the fire and listen to the waves at one sitting. Inside Moonlight Magic, we are continuing to acquire many books for the library, so you can enjoy some reading time. We have provided luxury bedding, bath towels, and bath soaps/lotions as an added pleasure. Moonlight Magic is complete with all new furnishings and electronics; including a flat screen tv, DVD, satellite TV and wireless internet. I have fully enjoyed selecting the interior furnishings for Moonlight Magic, as I selected all the furnishings as if I were a guest looking for comfort, excellent quality, and convenience. I have some decorations, such as the window treatments, which I had specially made in Abu Dhabi, UAE and carried half way across the world to Moonlight Magic. You will find other treasures, which I brought back with me, from my travels around the world, which are placed in Moonlight Magic. My main priority at Moonlight Magic is to make my guests feel special and have memories which will last a lifetime.
