About the Property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

THE BEST WATERFRONT COTTAGE IN NORTHERN DOOR...PERFECT FOR HONEYMOONS, GIRLFRIEND GETAWAYS, COUPLES RETREATS, AND MAKING MEMORIES.

Schwandt Cottage, in beautiful Gills Rock, is the perfect place for rest and relaxation. The cottage was once owned by one of the fishing families of Door County. It has been painstakingly restored to one of the quaintest, most delightful cottages in the area.

Gills Rock is in northern Door County, away from the hustle and bustle of some of the other towns in the County. It is significantly quieter, with less traffic. It is certainly possible to come to Schwandt Cottage and stay a week without leaving....it is just hard to leave after you get there, regardless of the season.

The view is outstanding! From the living room, the deck, the kitchen, and the private beach, guests can watch the changing moods of Green Bay, local fisherman coming and going, the incredible sunset which always provides an outstanding skyscape at the end of the day, and an occasional glimpse of a freighter passing the Door.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: The Georgi and Mike Schwandt on their beach at their cottage in Gills Rock....we love spending time at our cottage. We can't be there all of the time...so, we are pleased to share it with you. Guests have been coming since 1999....the comments in our Guest Book reflect satisfied visitors.

Why the Owner Chose Ellison Bay, WI, USA:
We looked and looked for the perfect location to purchase our Door County vacation home. Finally, when we found our cottage in 1998, it seemed to be the perfect place to spend time with our family and friends. However, it needed lots of work because it was quite distressed. So we rolled up our sleeves...and began the overhaul! Gills Rock is peaceful...and beautiful. In 1999, our first guests came to visit and since we have many guests each year from all of the United States....some returning year-after-year. We hope that you will consider our cottage your for your next Door County vacation.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our cottage is on the end of the peninsula...a stone's throw to everything that you may want to do while visiting in Door County. The beauty of Gills Rock, however, is that it is much, much quieter than the other Door County villages....with all of the beauty and recreation at your fingertips!
