Property description

**PLEASE CALL OR TEXT OWNER WITH QUESTIONS/INQUIRIES****

We have added 2 bedrooms, now there are five!
Teskie's Cottage is a 1700 sq. foot home located at 970 Cottage Rd in Gills Rock.

Air-conditioned, picturesque and freshly updated, this appealing waterfront cottage has a front row seat to the amazing view over Green Bay (no direct access to the water), a large master bedroom downstairs, and four additional bedrooms upstairs. A spacious kitchen, living room with stone fireplace, and sitting/reading room complete this quaint Door County cottage. Laundry facilities provided also. A large yard provides space for children and pets to run around.

Built by Lily and Frank Sr. Teskie in the early 1900's, the cottage was once used as a boarding house for visiting fishermen. The hand-cut granite fireplace in the living room, though not available for use, adds to its charm, and was constructed by Frank Sr. out of local stone. The breathtaking view includes the town of Gills Rock from the picture window in the living room, and unending, spectacular sunsets.

Enjoy Fourth of July fireworks from the front yard around the fire pit, grill out on the private sunny patio, or enjoy a book under the shady cedar trees in the yard. If you've been looking for a private yet convenient place to relax and enjoy Door County - this is it!
The much-beloved Shoreline Restaurant, a charming Coffee Shop at Gallery Ten art gallery with Wi-Fi, Charlie's Smokehouse (and Ice Cream!), the Island Clipper Ferry Line to Washington Island, a sprinkling of gift shops, and a spacious park with playground (pet-friendly) are all within walking distance.
Within 5-25 min. driving, so much more - parks, galleries, shops, churches, water activities, hiking, bicycling, wildlife/bird watching, theater events, sunrise/sunset vistas, beaches

Payment via cash, personal checks, Traveler's Checks, and money orders.
