Teskie's Cottage is a 1700 sq. foot home located at 970 Cottage Rd in Gills Rock.
Air-conditioned, picturesque and freshly updated, this appealing waterfront cottage has a front row seat to the amazing view over Green Bay (no access to the water), a large master bedroom downstairs, and four additional bedrooms upstairs. A spacious kitchen, living room with wood burning 6 foot stone fireplace, and sitting/reading room complete this quaint Door County cottage. Laundry facilities provided also. A large yard provides space for children and pets to run around.
Built by Lily and Frank Sr. Teskie in the early 1900's, the cottage was once used as a boarding house for visiting fishermen. The hand-cut granite fireplace in the living room adds to its charm, and was constructed by Frank Sr. out of local stone. The breathtaking view includes the town of Gills Rock from the picture window in the living room, and unending, spectacular sunsets.
Enjoy Fourth of July fireworks from the front yard around the fire pit, grill out on the private sunny patio, or enjoy a book under the shady cedar trees in the yard. If you've been looking for a private yet convenient place to relax and enjoy Door County - this is it!
The much-beloved Shoreline Restaurant, a charming Coffee Shop at Gallery Ten art gallery with Wi-Fi, Charlie's Smokehouse (and Ice Cream!), the Island Clipper Ferry Line to Washington Island, a sprinkling of gift shops, and a spacious park with playground (pet-friendly) are all within walking distance.
Within 5-25 min. driving, so much more - parks, galleries, shops, churches, water activities, hiking, bicycling, wildlife/bird watching, theater events, sunrise/sunset vistas, beaches

Gorgeous view of Green Bay
Older home but five women had a blast there. Everything you need is provided
Great views but not clean!
I guess our standards for cleanliness are different than others. It took us over an hour to clean the kitchen to make it acceptable for use. Dirt under beds and couches. Had to rewash the kitchen utensils and dishes before using. I will say the views were great!
Beautiful location on lake, clean, interior dated.
Owner was welcoming, friendly and accommodating. Home was furnished with all the necessities, which was unexpected. Towels, paper products, etc.
Would stay again in a New York minute!
Very clean, great location
Attentive owner, great view, walking distance to a excellent restaurant.
Great host, great cottage, great location!
Everything was great about this cottage; the view, the breeze, the fireplace, the location. It had everything. Lyle was kind enough to bring us firewood, kindling, and newspaper for our fire. You can walk 200 feet to the main road, turn left or right, and within a three minute walk you can find coffee, food, or drinks. A truely great location. Not to mention a 5, 10, and 15 minute drive gets you to Ellison Bay, Sister Bay, and Ephraim!
Relaxing weekend away!
With 5 adults and 2 children (and a dog), this cottage had plenty of space. We were able to get some quiet whether in the house or outside looking over the lake. The owner, Lyle was wonderful. He brought over kindling for our fire that we had every night and answered any questions we had regarding the area of Door County we were in. We enjoyed the quiet atmosphere and friendly customer service of Lyle. We will be back to Gills Rock to stay at this cottage for sure.
