About the property

Cottage, 2 - 5 Bedrooms + Convertible sofa bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Listen to the sound of waves hitting the shore (24 feet away from your door) and enjoy beautiful sunsets over the bay! Our waterfront cottage is nestled on a secluded wooded acre, halfway between downtown Sturgeon Bay and downtown Egg Harbor on Bay Shore Drive.

You will be just ten short minutes from the hub of the activities on the peninsula while being able to enjoy the unspoiled splendor of your own private beach and woods. From the property you can watch both the sunrise over the bluff and the sunset over the bay.

The cottage is a duplex/townhouse that has two entrances and connects upstairs through the middle bedroom. It has full kitchens, living and dining areas and two full baths on the first floor and five bedrooms with Verlo pillow top queen beds upstairs. Three of the queen bedrooms have direct water views, two have partial water views. Bamboo flooring in the bathrooms, kitchens and dining rooms. Carpeting in bedrooms and living rooms. Air conditioning is throughout the cottage. Satellite TV and high speed Wi-Fi. We provide bed linens, bath and kitchen towels, a starter supply of paper products, hand and dish soap, local calls and other amenities.

Our beach is mostly smooth rocks and the water depth is about three to four feet deep about 50 feet offshore. Swim or fish from the 50 foot pier in the summer. Enjoy the fire pits on the beach for great bonfires as well as gas and charcoal grills, picnic tables, porch swing, and Adirondack chairs. Relax and unwind on the beachfront patio. See beautiful sunsets from our beachfront patio.

Need something smaller? We will also rent as a 2, 3, or 4 bedroom. Please contact us for details. Visit our property web site at www.cottageonthebay.com for more information and pictures.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We SO enjoyed the Cottage! We especially liked the proximity to the water. We got to enjoy a couple of spectacular sunsets. Driving the peninsula, the wineries, the restaurants were relaxing and enjoyable for us, and not very crowded. This is definitely a place we would like to return.

good location but pricey

  • 3 of 5

The house is fine. The access to water is very close. The caretakers of the house were easy to contact and promptly responded to calls or emails. The second floor stairs are steep, so older or differently abled may have issues with them. The rental price is a little expensive for the overall conditions of the house.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your feedback. As explained in the amenities section of the listing, the staircase has hand rails but it may not be suitable for people with limited mobility. Waterfront property, especially facing west to capture every sunset that exists, is hard to come by in Door County. Our rental rates are seasonal and in line with others in the area, especially for 5 bedrooms. Most of our guests are quite pleased with the overall value that we offer.

Exactly What We Wanted

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Cottage on the Bay! The house was exactly as we expected it to be; right on the water and very clean. It was very easy to get to and the directions provided were crystal clear. The owner emailed us several times as our weekend approached and there were no surprises upon arrival. All communication was clear and accurate. Check out was easy, nothing was unreasonable as the instructions were essentially, clean up after yourselves and put away what you used. I was told the pier would be installed on the first morning of our stay and right as planned it was installed quickly and available for us to enjoy the rest of our trip. Other than that, we were left alone, no check-ins from the owners or anyone else. It was a true getaway experience.

The Cottage is very well stocked, and we found that everything we had forgotten to bring from home (can opener, cork screw, coffee machine) was already provided. We rented the whole place so there were 5 bedrooms with queen beds and a full or queen size pull out bed in each living room. Plenty of space for 12 people. We brought extra lawn chairs but plenty were provided.

Two minor things to note:

1. There is no interior first floor connection between the two cottages. This obviously only applies if you are renting both sides. There is a 5th bedroom upstairs that connects both sides, but otherwise you have to go outside if you're moving from one side to the other. This was not an issue for us as the front entrances are right next to each other but since it wasn’t included in the description and you can’t tell by the pictures, I thought it should be noted.

2. There were a lot of small insects that swarm you as you drive up the driveway and as you unpack your car. Thankfully they weren't mosquitos they did not bite at all. More of nuisance than anything else. We spent a lot of time outside and, other than covering our drinks, we were not bothered by them. Perhaps a bug fogger or a few citronella candles/torches would have helped, but again, it was not so big a nuisance that it changed any of our plans.

These two things did not affect our stay at all and I only include them on this review for other’s knowledge. We had an excellent time and have already talked about coming back in the future!

Amazing sunsets right on the water

  • 4 of 5

This worked out quite well for us and the views over Green Bay were amazing. There's a nice playground for kids, and awesome fire pits with chairs overlooking the water on each side of the duplex. My cautionary note is that the stairs are very steep with bedrooms upstairs and bathrooms on the first floor (one on each side). If you need to use the bathroom in the middle of the night, it's a bit daunting. Nice grills and a great location. Loved the area.
