Ellison Bay house description

Enjoy the tranquil setting amongst the pine,cedar and of course birch trees. Enjoy roasting s'mores over the firepit. Preparing that special meal either on the charcoal or stainless gas grill or if you prefer cooking inside in our well equipped kitchen. Clean up is simple with the dishwasher so you can relax and enjoy your time away from home. The master bedroom is off the main living area allowing you a peaceful rest while others might choose to be active.
You may not want to leave the comfortable surroundings of Birch Haven, but seeing as much of Door County on your vacation is a must. Fishboils to fishing, golf to miniature golf, boating and sailing with a dash of shopping might just make this your most memorable vacation yet.
Birch Haven is not only a summer get away, but a year round retreat. Door County with it ample snow fall each year offers a variety of winter activites.
Birch Haven is located a 1/4th mile from the Ellison Bay Marina and just 3/4th of a mile from the public beach and park. Birch Haven is within walking distance to a grocery store and many local restaurants.
We have have inquiries about air conditioning at Birch Haven. NEW THIS YEAR A/C just to make some of those uncomfortable days alittle more enjoyable.

                      Location

                      Ellison Bay with it's small town charm is where you will find small town friendliness. If you like northern Door but opt for a slower more relaxed place, Ellison Bay is what you would be looking for. Birch Haven is just a short walk to the village center. There you will find 4 distinctly different restuarants, all with their own mouth watering meals. The little country store carries most everything you might have forgotten or ran out of. The beach located at the south end of town is always clean and inviting. There is 'hard cider' tastings just a couple of blocks away along with an interesting cooking school for the cook that has interest in adding to their talent. Ellison Bay which is located on the 'bay' side of the pennisula offers the resources of Green Bay for fishing and boating and a short drive to the east will put you on the waters of Lake Michigan. A 10 minute ride to the north will put you in Gills Rock, home to many of the local commercial fisherman. And from there a short drive to the dock at Newport for the ride on the ferry to Washington Island. A short walk from Birch Haven is a small town park with a large open area for ballgames, a playground, and tennis courts. So whether you looking for a quiet relaxing vacation or one with many options for activies your stay at Birch Haven will meet your expentations.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2011

                      About the owner: Native to Door County but now living 3 hours away Paul & I wish we could spend more time there. Paul grew up in Ephraim and I vacationed summers in Door County as a young girl. I met Paul after my parents purchased their summer home next to Pauls home in Ephraim. We were married in Baileys Harbor in the summer of '74.

                      Why the Owner Chose Ellison Bay:
                      We had to do something exciting on 1-11-11 so we signed the paperwork for what might be our retirement home. Ellison Bay with it's cameo appearance in the movie,(Feed the Fish) just seemed to be the place in Door County that felt so good to us both. It's relatively quiet compared to the other towns and villages in northern Door which is a plus.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Looking back at the summer season of 2011 Paul & I enjoyed interacting with all of our guests. We learned,listened and tried to be the best we could and will continue to adjust to meet everyones needs. 2012 brings some improvements that should make your stay at Birch Haven more enjoyable. Air conditioning along with removing and installing laminate flooring in the living room, with a furniture upgrade will be the start of other improvements in the future. We always welcome requests, suggestions, and comments that might make your next stay with us just that much nicer. All returning guest receive 10% off any future stays.
