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 for more information and pictures.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for sharing your home with our family. There were eight adults and one toddler in our group - it was PERFECT!. The 1-1/2 year old love, love, loved the playground, kid picnic table and small chair - and of course the rocks and water. The adults enjoyed the cabin. water and campfire. This worked out so well for our large size group. My only complaint was that it was too short of a stay :) Until next time....

Great stay - plenty of room!

  • 4 of 5

My sisters and I had a wonderful reunion here on the bay side of Door County. Stairs going up to the bedrooms are a little steep but fine if you are agile enough. Bedrooms were well appointed and comfortable. Great little get away!

Rental home was adequate. Kitchen was small, kinda sticky with musty smell. Our family of 4 could have used more shower towels with one week stay. Upstairs bedrooms were nice with great view of lake. Beachfront too rocky to walk in. Beautiful lakefront property with great firepit and outdoor furniture provided.

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.
