The Country Chalet, a year round vacation home, is a spacious 3 bedroom home nestled in a hilly, wooded setting. Tranquil and secluded just minutes away from the center of Fish Creek where you can enjoy the beach, summer stock theater, and Founders Square restaurants and shops. Peninsula State Parks main entrance is also located in Fish Creek where you can find miles of hiking, biking, cross country ski and snowmobile trails. In addition, for those who love to golf, there are several golf courses within minutes of the chalet.

Inside the chalet, you’ll find 1700 square feet of space to relax and play. Perfect for a family get togethers, ladies weekends, couples or a cozy hideaway for smaller parties.

The second story loft overlooks the great room and displays a panoramic view of the woods. It contains a master bedroom suite with private bath and a study area ideally suited for reading or computer time.

Downstairs you’ll find two sizable bedrooms and large shared bath. The adjacent laundry room is equipped with washer and dryer. The kitchen is fully equiped for guests who like to cook and provides a microwave and dishwasher for quick snacks and quicker cleanup. The dining area leads to a deck overlooking the woods with a charcoal grill for the master chef. A perfect spot to enjoy watching the colorful birds, wild turkeys, deer and other wildlife who call Gibraltar Bluff their home.

In the great room, you’ll find a wood burning fireplace, TV, VCR/DVD player with a variety of VHS & DVD movies for rainy day entertainment. For the family that likes to play games there is a collection of games to use.

About Dennis & Marla Sunstrom

We both grew up in the Milwaukee area and met in high school. Dennis introduced me to Door County early in our relationship. It was a place his family visited and vacationed often and a place he truly loved. We love camping and for years we have always camped at least once during the year at Peninsula State Park. We also visit family there as often as possible and the purchase of this property has made it a lot of fun.

Dennis & Marla Sunstrom purchased this house in 2009

Why Dennis & Marla Sunstrom chose Door County

Because Dennis' parents were originally from Door County and have now retired there we thought it fitting to have our own vacation home close to family.

What makes this house unique

We love the peace and quiet this property offers, yet it's close to so many things we love to do.

Perfect Door County Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, our sweet dog and I stayed at the Country Chalet for our first ever visit to Door County just before the season kicked off in early May. We could not have had a better time in more cozy and homey accommodations! We were close enough to all the action to access everything we wanted to do easily, yet the location is still secluded enough to help you get away from the hustle and bustle of such a touristy area. The Chalet itself is spacious, comfortable and tastefully decorated. You truly feel right at home the minute you walk in. The kitchen and bathroom amenities were very appreciated. Evenings were chilly, so we loved having a fire inside, and the option to have a fire in the pit out back. Our dog absolutely loved the wooded area to which the house backs up. We would have our coffee outside in the mornings, and he would just run around the back yard area until he tuckered himself out. Not to mention that the owners could not have been easier to work with. Very responsive and helpful. We cannot wait to bring our family back and stay at the Country Chalet again. Thank you, Marla and Dennis!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the nice comments. We do are hardest to make sure our guests feel at home and it sounds like your visit was all you had hoped. That makes us feel like we did our job well. We look forward to accommodating you and your family in the future. Make sure you book early because we do tend to get pretty booked up months in advance depending on the time of year. Dennis and Marla Country Chalet

Fantastic house

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic house. It is roomy and very clean. I especially appreciate that even the back deck is clean; I have been in houses where that has not been the case. Our family of four adults, two little children and a dog loved the location, the quiet and the scenic trees in the back. Congratulations to good owners who respectfully open their home to us.

Quiet, Peaceful, Great Extra Touches

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome time relaxing in Door County this past week. The Country Chalet provided us a very quiet and relaxing place to get away. Besides for the road crews, we didn't hear much of anything besides the birds while we were at the house. The area where the house is located is away from the main highway and the trees block out the highway noise. You wouldn't even know you are so close to everything when at the house. Having almost everything provided made packing really easy as well! This house is very well furnished with linens and typical home supplies. We would love to stay here again the next time we are in Door County!

Stay at County Chalet Fish Creek

  • 4 of 5

We found the Chalet very easily thanks to the owner's directions and they provided very clear instructions for the use of the home, including labeling light switches. The kitchen was very well stocked with not only an assortment of glasses and dishes but cooking and prep utensils as well. They provided adequate bedding, pillows and towels, paper products, soaps and cleaning products too. The home was comfortable, clean and spacious with a cathedral ceiling and loft area. The futon in the living area was very comfortable to sleep on and we enjoyed the little sitting area in the loft . The home has a deck out back, we enjoyed the privacy and quiet afforded by being in a quiet wooded lot. The location between Egg Harbor and Fish Creek was nice since we enjoy those 2 towns. We would definitely return and recommend it and the whole Home Away experience.

Outstanding! Convenient to all in Fish Creek, but in a private wooded setting.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful home in a quiet beautiful setting just off 42. Close to all the Orchard markets, restaurants and shops. We enjoyed soaking up the morning sun on the back deck, then heading out to explore!

And so many amenities were included in the kitchen and. bathrooms. We could have eliminated half the items that we packed for "just in case" since they were stocked for our use. We especially appreciated the Door County coffee, plenty of wine glasses, and bug spray to use. Well-planned, and so welcoming!
