          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1971

          About the owner: Old Lime Kiln Cottage is our family guest house, now offered as a rental, June through October. Weeklong stays preferred. 'One of the last pieces of fairlyland' has been said of our acres, which welcome vacationers.. It is very easy to get to nearby beaches and restaurants. Just take our road across Hwy 57, turn right on Town Line Road, left on German Road and be in the heart of Ephraim. Call me to discuss whether my place is right for your group.

          Why the Owner Chose Baileys Harbor:
          We were interested in the land itself and the 1870 homestead on it. Another family lived here for a century and there is clear evidence that before that, American Indians summered here. This rental unit offers good privacy, even at the height of the season, in beautiful surroundings.

          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
          Gathering around the table, which is central to the cottage has been so much fun. Two couples or one couple with children, or a group of five, do easily share this space.
