Fish Creek farmhouse description

For your next family reunion or friends getaway, stay at Door County Wisconsin's exclusive vacation experience- KINNEY FARM

KINNEY FARM offers guests a unique vacation experience on a beautiful one hundred acre estate. Conveniently located between the charming villages of Egg Harbor and Fish Creek, this private wildlife sanctuary is one of a kind with its three separate topographical elevations. The lower forty acres features a renovated farmhouse and old dairy barn, fields of corn, and native grasses. The second elevation includes woods and a natural meadow. Undisturbed forest, wandering fields, and a sloping bluff best describes the 'upper' forty acres.

You'll feel like a time traveler staying at this distinctive hundred year old farmhouse. There are five bedrooms, four updated baths, a living room, den, wet bar, and country kitchen. All rooms are lovingly decorated with antiques, interesting art, vintage nautical and equestrian items.

For your enjoyment, both the den and living room have native stone fireplaces in addition to flat screen TVs. We provide an all age video library (DVD & VHS) , along with a variety of CDs, novels, and books on local history. There are cards, board games, and puzzles for all ages, but you have a hundred acres to explore!
Plan to hike, hunt for arrowheads, and gather antlers. In the den you'll find binoculars, bird watching manuals, and a telescope to view the abundant wildlife and incredibly bright stars.
Parents with young children are comforted by the expansive 'yard' for them to play within view of the house.

The well appointed kitchen has two full sized refrigerators, a large oven, and a separate eating area. While the whole house fan and individual room fans will handle any warm days, you'll want to bring an extra sweater for those cooler evenings 'dining out' on the fully screened porch.
You may prefer to gather around the outdoor fire pit with your family and friends to roast marshmallows, star gaze, or simply reconnect.

Its a short walk down Juddville road to the Green Bay shoreline, take your fishing pole or kayak. There are multiple public boat launches, all less than 4 miles from the farm. Kinney Farms long circular drive provides easy access and parking for your boat trailer. Off the back porch, you'll find both a gas and charcoal grill for cooking your 'catch of the day'.

While this property is pet friendly, including a fenced double dog run, we ask that you check with us about specific requirements when making reservations.

Door County is a vacation paradise with much to offer. In the house, we share a list of our favorite local places and activities for your consideration.

After a day in the village or on the water, its comforting to know that you can come back to what our guests refer to as 'A Little Piece of Heaven'-- the KINNEY FARM.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1960

              About the owner: Our parents purchased this property in the early 1960's as a wonderful place to enjoy our summers as a family. Since then, our extended families have enjoyed spending that same quality time at the farm with our children and friends. We are very proud of the Kinney Farm and wish to share this unique opportunity with you, your friends, and family. Liz Kinney & John Kinney

              Why the Owner Chose Fish Creek:
              DOOR COUNTY- While only 10 miles across, Door County has more than 300 miles of shoreline, 10 historic lighthouses, 5 state parks, and several small islands. The county consists of 24 towns/villages and has a permanent population of about 29,000. In addition to boating and fishing (with charters available), there are several places to rent kayaks, bikes, and mo-peds. Activities include golfing, antiquing, horseback riding, hands on art studios, and public sand beaches. There are 3 popular live-theater venues, a rare drive-in outdoor movie theater, galleries, quaint restaurants, fish boils, cherry picking, and numerous local festivals. There are activities for all ages! Voted 'One of the TOP 10 vacation Destinations in North America' by Money Magazine.

              The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
              We enjoy hiking around the perimeter of the property. Making it easier to stay within the property, we've wrapped tree trunks with orange pastic snow fencing, usually within sight of other wrapped trees. Holding on to small trees makes it easier while decending the bluff side. It's challenging but fun. The less adventurous and novice hikers may want to stay on paths and walk around the fields.
