Property description

If you love the outdoors and enjoy activities like camping, our rustic cottages may be just for you! They were built in the '50s and have loads of character and many return guests. But even after cleaning you may find a little sand and an occasional bug, just like at home. Firefly Cottages are much more laid-back than a condo or hotel and over 95% of the guests enjoy their time immensely. But for the 5% who think they're getting a modern 21st century villa, these family style cabins may not be the place for you. We do boast a high recommendation and returning guest rate.
Bring your adventurous spirit and explore Door County with a home base of the finest beaches Door County offers.
Don’t forget your suit and towel!

If you're looking for a romantic escape that includes sipping wine on the beach, listening to the still of the night and moonlit walks at the water's edge..or you'd like to recreate those childhood memories with your family without the intrusion of internet, cable or clocks, this is the place for you! Enjoy fishing, campfires, movie nights & fireflies.
Our cottages are perfect to escape the hustle & bustle!
And we're good-dog friendly!
Here is some info- please email me for more!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: My fiance and I along with our 4 girls live in Green Bay and are never more than a phone call away if you need anything. We are pet lovers and encourage you to bring your well behaved pups along for your stay. I truly love sharing this beautiful place.. seeing families and friends make memories. Just the other day, a letter in the guest book made me cry happy tears :)

Why the Owner Chose Sturgeon Bay:
These cottages are a part of me. My grandfather and his siblings bought up much of the road in the 40's- way before it was a tourist-y area. They built family cottages as a getaway from their busy lives in Milwaukee. My parents took over the rentals from my grandpa before I was born..so I grew up building sandcastles on this beach and having slumber parties in these cottages. When my dad fell ill in 1999 I moved home to help take care of him and to oversee the rentals (known as Johnson's Cottages). Later that year, after his passing, I moved home for good and have been running them as Firefly Cottages ever since.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The beach is just lovely-sandy bottomed with a gentle slope for swimming. The cottage road is one lane and has very little traffic-perfect for walking and biking. Sturgeon Bay Ship Canal Nature Preserve is right up the road near the lighthouse and is a great place to hike!
