Gills Rock cabin description
Experience Door County's most beautiful view all day long at this true log cabin located on the waterfront of famous Death's Door Passage. With views of Plum Island lighthouse, Pilot Island lighthouse, and Northport Ferry Dock all from the porch of this quaint cottage, the only view more impressive than the islands scattered across the pristine blue waters by day is the sea of bright shining stars spanning the northern skies overhead by night. Sink into your chair and watch the ferry boats cross the channel to Washington Island well into the night before stepping outside to catch satellites and shooting stars which are regularly gazed upon from this site on clear nights. By day, either enjoy a swim in the clean waters of Lake Michigan off a stone beach in front of the cabin or jump on a ferry from Northport to enjoy a fun filled day exploring Washington Island or Rock Island, both memorable experiences. Northport Ferry Dock is less than a five minute walk away and also has a delicious restaurant where you can catch breakfast, lunch, or dinner overlooking the harbor. The Bell Cabin is perfect for a family, couple, or group of friends looking to get away from the tourist traps in the busy towns and to take in the true nature of Door County's treasures. With a large flagstone porch off the water, the 'backyard' (or off-water side) is a perfect location for grilling and campfires. Between the beach, lake, and wilderness, kids of all ages will have no problem finding many adventures to fill their days and create memories that will last a lifetime. The cabin is located a few miles car ride or bike form Gill's Rock where you can find provisions as well as sight seeing cruises, dive boats, and fishing charters. Also located in Gills Rock is a coffee house, gift shops, and The Shoreline, another great restaurant with an unbeatable view of the sun setting over Green Bay during dinner hours.
The cabin itself is centered around a large stone wood burning fireplace. Behind the fireplace is the main bedroom which includes a double bed, two dressers, and a full fold down futon. In front of the fireplace there is full fold-out couch which can also sleep two adults or is perfect for kids. If further bed space is needed, there is another fold out couch on the porch which overlooks the water and lighthouses.
Many tell stories of vacations to Baileys Harbor, Egg Harbor, Fish Creek, or Sister Bay and the wonderful times they have had in Door County, but few have ever traveled far enough North to experience the full wonders of this amazing peninsula. This cabin is literally located on the Northernmost tip of Door County on 200 feet of shoreline and looks off towards Washington, Plum, Detroit, and Pilot Islands and onward toward Michigan. For the true adventurers who want to leave the city behind and get completely swallowed up in nature's beauty, The Bell Cabin offers an atmosphere that is second to none. We hope to see you there!

"Leave the city behind and get swallowed up in nature's beauty" as long as you don't mind staying in someone's back yard with more lights then a maximum security prison! "Enjoy the Stars"? We couldn't see them for the bright lights. "Sounds of nature..." couldn't hear them because of the music. Rustic cabin comes complete with spider webs and authentic musty smell. The view is nice. The viewing deck is well built and sturdy. The open concept log cabin has nostalgic charm, but in the end lacks the seclusion and privacy that you would expect.
