Property description

Thirty acres of Wisconsin's premier vacation destination on the Door County peninsula welcome guests to this outstanding dovetail log home. Conveniently located just outside the quaint village of Sister Bay, visitors enjoy a peaceful relaxed setting for their Door County vacation or weekend getaway. Whether communing with nature from the comfort of a hammock or exploring the many cultural and recreational activities Door County has to offer, this is the perfect place.

Newly constructed of native white cedar, this hand-hewn, dovetail jointed, log home combines plenty of windows and open space with an abundance of hand-crafted detail to create a warm, inviting setting. The house is tastefully decorated, the bathrooms well appointed, and the kitchen fully-equipped.

You can enjoy coffee watching the songbirds and catch a sunrise from the decks, picnic and siesta among the apple trees, enjoy wine and sunset dinner on the screen porch, and end the day with a campfire. This is all possible at Dovetail Acres, an unique Door County Retreat.

We invite you to enjoy the hospitality of Dovetail Acres and to discover the wonder of Door County from the comfort of our vacation log home.

Dovetail Acres... Door County's distinctive vacation destination.

Door County is home to five state parks, numerous county parks, public beaches and boat launches. There are also large tracts managed by the Nature Conservancy and the Door County Land Trust, most with great public access.

It has a vibrant arts community with numerous private galleries encompassing many mediums from sculpture to pottery.

Shopping is a delight, nightlife and dining are great and there is water everywhere.
