Steps away

Fish Creek is considered the heart of Northern Door County with its shopping, galleries with artist in residence, art and music schools as well as an “old school” outdoor movie theater.

The public beach, nested in the harbor, (one short block below the cottage) is sandy. There is a grassy area for relaxing and sun bathing and a play area for children The water is clean and shallow for some distance out, so it’s safe for small children.

The backdrop to the beach is the 1,400 acre, jewel of Door county, Peninsula State Park. just a few blocks from the cottage you can enter the park for hiking, biking, fishing, sunbathing, a nature center, lighthouse, championship golf course and acclaimed American Folklore Theatre amphitheater.

In town there are several excellent restaurants and numerous exquisite shops catering to all tastes.

Just one block down is a grocery store.

So much to do …


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We are entrepreneurs Eric and Carina. We did not grown up in Door County. Eric is from Minneapolis, MN and Carina from Green Bay, WI area. Carina moved to door county in 1998 to help her parents run a hotel and convinced Eric to come to Door County with his culinary talents to begin a small sandwich and coffee shop in 2001 on a back road in Fish Creek. We moved location in 2005 down to the Main Street. Then in early 2012 purchased our first property and moved the Cafe again and for the final time. The new property featured a white house directly across from the popular Fish Creek town beach with views of Peninsula State Park across the harbor, as well as a 750 square foot rental cottage directly behind the house. As soon aw we took ownership we began updating the cottage to our standards so we could offer it as yet another service to our customers and travelers.

Why the Owner Chose Fish Creek:
Eric and I chose to reside in Door County because we wanted a simpler life. Since we realize our cafe is well established it was time to put down roots and own not lease. Door County is visually stunning and serene and simply magical in the summertime. The winters are quiet and beautiful, great for skiing, snowshoeing, horseback riding and snowmobiling, as well as getting to know the locals.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Unique to The Java Hut cottage rental is its ideal location with proximity to downtown and the beach, its updated nature, its size and amenities, as well as the discounts guests enjoy on dining and drinks at Blue Horse Beach Cafe. And...WE ALLOW DOGS!
