Sister Bay house description

You can have it all here: live right on Rowleys Bay in a charming, airy waterfront house. Our beautiful home is intimate enough for a quiet getaway or big enough for a reunion with family and/or friends.

The home is situated just north of Sister Bay on the banks of Rowleys Bay, a beautiful, all natural waterfront looking out on Lake Michigan. It’s adjacent to the Mink River Estuary, a protected nature preserve. There is beautiful unspoiled scenery all around the home —perfect for bird watching, hiking, etc. The home is quiet and secluded, but also located near the Rowleys Bay Resort (formerly the Wagon Trail) with its many amenities. These include a restaurant and pub, Grandma’s Swedish Bakery for delicious treats all day long (open June-Oct.), an indoor pool, whirlpool, game room and playground for the kids. A marina at the resort offers kayaking and boat rentals in season for exploring the Bay and the Mink River. Bicycling is also a great way to view the beauty of the area.

The house, which sleeps from 2-11, has it all, including four spacious bedrooms (two with views of the Bay), a hide-a-bed in the living room, a modern, spacious, full-service kitchen, and a screened porch and beautiful deck with lovely, pristine lake views. There are 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths upstairs, 1 bedroom and 1.5 baths downstairs. There is even your own private Lake-front access for water play by day and star-gazing by night.

The home is perfect for all occasions--and fun for all with a VCR/DVD player and satellite TV. It is available year round—in fact, winter offers
beautiful scenery along with peace and tranquility. You can text and check e-mail from our living room--our home has free WiFi access.

You can do as you like--relax at home, or visit and enjoy world class shopping, golfing and mini golf in one of the many charming towns just a short drive away (Ellison Bay, Sister Bay, Ephraim, etc.). You can enjoy nature near our house or at nearby Newport State Park, or have fun with the kids at the Rowleys Bay Resort lodge.

Our guest book is full of delightful messages from happy guests. We’d love to share our home with you!

                              Why Sister Bay:
                              Our family has been coming to Rowleys Bay for several years, drawn back year after year by the natural beauty of the Bay and Lake Michigan. We loved it so much, we decided to build a lovely year round home here. Newport State Park is directly across the Bay from our house--a beautiful unchanging backdrop to the Bay and Lake. Nearby Sister Bay (a short drive away) has always been one of our favorite towns in Door County, WI. Al Johnson's Restaurant, Sister Bay Bowl and Supper Club, and Pirates Cove mini-golf are just some of the many fun attractions there. We can experience the seclusion of our house, nearby Rowleys Bay Resort, and Sister Bay all together--the best of all worlds in this lovely setting.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              Our house offers peaceful seclusion, but all the fun of the Rowleys Bay Resort lodge. Our kids were young when we started coming to Rowleys Bay, but they loved walking to the lodge for their own fun time. We could go there with them OR (more fun for them) they could go by themselves (the resort grounds are quiet and family friendly). They loved the game room, Grandma's bakery and the swimming pool.
