This private residence is a spectacular retreat offering all the comforts of home and unbelievable amenities for your vacation pleasure. It is as if you had your own private Inn. Sweetbriar is beautiful at any time of year with 5000+ square feet to enjoy inside, and sixteen acres of nature to explore outside. Beautiful gardens and woodchipped paths offer another outstanding amentity. Decorated with casual elegance and comfort for our guests, this luxurious home offers the perfect retreat in a country setting to soothe your mind and spirit.

Enjoy your vacation time with family and friends, in this eight bedroom home (six master suites with private bathrooms/Jacuzzi tubs and showers) as well as seven fireplaces, plus two very spacious bedrooms also with private baths and a separate nursery). Our home welcomes you to relax with its delightful accommodations, splendid common areas and enormous state of the art kitchen. The sun porch is a favorite spot with wall-to-wall windows. Eat in the cozy warmth of the kitchen, sun porch or gather in the dining room. Sweetbriar is designed to cater to all types of group gatherings, so with your convenience in mind, we have created a family friendly environment. The main level pleases all ages with cozy furnishings, a large screen plasma television, stereo system with music library and BOZE docking station, not to mention a kitchen you won't believe. A second floor is a great space for play and relaxation -- soundproof and private -there is a room for everyone...

Sweetbriar's location provides an aura of seclusion, close to Sister Bay activities and Door County attractions. Sweetbriar rests on sixteen meadowed acres at the southern edge of Sister Bay and is minutes from any water related activity you choose.

After exploring Door County or merely walking in our gardens and paths, you can relax in the great room with a wood burning fireplace and bar, or the library with one of the big screen televisions. Sweetbriar offers the best of both worlds -- great spaces to gather with the entire group and warm intimate corners for private moments.

Don't miss this unique opportunity to make your Door County dreams come true! We look forward to your visit. If the dates you desire are booked, you may want to check our other property: Camelot Cliffs, VRBO 169503 for availability. Thank you.

Why Deborah Homan chose Door County

It is a one of a kind property...the entire CLAN can be under one roof, but not under foot. Spacious and respectful of privacy as well as many large gathering spots for the entire group or family. IT IS AWESOME!

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

The property is amazing. There were 11 of us, including 2 young children. The family with small children stayed down stairs. The outside was great, had a fire almost every night.

For us adults, there were areas we could go to read. Some of the family were able to go to a separate area and work. Kitchen was unbelievable. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Wonderful place to stay when you visit Door County.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 12 adults and six children enjoyed our stay at Sweetbriar. The gourmet kitchen was wonderful to cook together. The bedrooms fit our family perfectly. We appreciated being

about to find a quiet place in one of the 3 family rooms or the spacious deck. We were out

most of the day enjoying what Door County has to offer. It was great to come back to a nice

house to relax and have conversation with each other. We hope to visit again and rent this same house.

Beautiful home in Door Cointy

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Sister Bay was relaxing and enjoyable. This home is spacious and welcoming with individual bedrooms and bathrooms. Everybody in the group had their own private space but we could all get together in several different locations to enjoy each other's company. We travel as a large group each summer and wish we could take this house with us wherever we go.
