Gorgeous log cabin

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful home on a secluded lot, that's close to everything. Everything u need is provided, linens, fully stocked kitchen, games for the kids, great tv, DVD gas fireplace. Weather was cold and rainy one day. Stayed in , had pajama day, watches movies, played games,it was wonderful. Room for all of the kids to spread out. Next day was lovely. Went hiking at state parks and roasted hit dogs and Smores at the firepit.wonderful property. Will definitely be back.

Amazing Property to Ring in My 40's!

  • 5 of 5

The Hidden Bear Cabin is delightfully charming. Some friends and I rented it to celebrate my 40th birthday, and the cabin was even more amazing in person than the pictures suggest. Charlie and Sharon made the check in/check out process a breeze. Between the bedrooms, the air mattresses and the pullouts, there is more than enough room to sleep eight people. There is a plethora of seating around the firepit. The kitchen is stocked with all your baking dish and utensil needs. There are plenty of towels, blankets, pillows, etc. provided. As a bonus, there are fun, old school games throughout the cabin for any downtime you may have!

The cabin is only about a 5-7 minute drive into downtown Egg Harbor, but while at the cabin, you are surrounded by nothing but trees and can only hear the sounds of nature. It really is the perfect place to stay. I would recommend it to anyone!

Amazing... again!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property 4 years ago and didn't take the time to write a review. Since our decision was based off of other reviews, I thought I'd add to it. What a great find in Door County! My husband and I most recently stayed here for our 10 year anniversary. First, the house itself is great! The pictures posted actually don't do it justice. We wanted something that felt like a getaway, not just someone else's house. This cabin is beautiful, clean and cozy! It is in Egg Harbor and tucked away in the woods, but only a few minutes off the main road and perfectly centralized in Door County. We covered Sturgeon Bay up to Gill's Rock.

Sharen was great to work with and responded to questions leading up to and the weekend of very quickly. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!
