Year Purchased: 1994
About the owner: I am a climate scientist at Iowa State University. Our family has enjoyed coming to Door County at least once a year for about 35 years, at first staying with friends but eventually building our own home. We have decided that this is now our family retreat, since we are getting scattered across the country and have reduced incentive to come back to the family home in Ames, Iowa.
Why the Owner Chose Baileys Harbor, WI, USA:
We built our home on this location in 1994 from a design I developed. The open design enables us to simultaneously view, from most public areas in the house, the lake, the stone fireplace, and the soaring pine and cedar trees between the lake and the home. Coffee mugs, beer and wine glasses, and wall décor reveal the personal interests of our family. We did not build the home for the purpose of renting it, but our schedules do not permit us to spend the entire warm season in Door County so we have decided to share the home with others.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The property is spacious and provides both privacy and gathering locations. It is a good launching point for enjoying the scenery, hiking, biking, golfing, boating, fishing, eating in or out, or just exploring Door County. You can walk the beach for miles in either direction without seeing a “keep out” sign or being yelled at. The lake influence means that the temperature rarely gets above 80 degrees between the house and the beach even in July and August. You will need a light jacket at your beach campfire in the evenings. The house is fully air conditioned for the few days that the humidity gets high enough to be uncomfortable.
