About Janet Slater

My father designed this home to be a fabulous retreat from city life. Crack any window open and the lake is in the room. Windows abound so the outside is inside. When I come to Door County the stress of day to day life just slips away and the wildlife, lake and new areas to discover bring many moments of enjoyment.

Janet Slater purchased this house in 2001

Why Janet Slater chose Sturgeon Bay

The beauty of this property is that it is on the lakeside, you have peaceful, gorgeous views, the lake in all it's splendor; a full sky of stars; daytime privacy, hiking trails unending, and just a short drive away, when you wish to shop, visit art galleries, eat out, etc. you are close by.

I have at our home a long, diverse list of activities for families, couples, nature lovers, shoppers, gallery lovers, boaters, explorers, as well as recommended restaurants, a calendar of events and directions to sites, parks and towns near by, and essential services you may need.

What makes this house unique

We love the privacy...we have a county park to the south of us, so no one can build or daily encroach on our enjoyment. We have two patios/porches. One is just above the lake with a fire pit and it's wonderful for the evening with friends or early morning tea all on your own. The two person master suite shower and outdoor shower are both a delight. The lights were custom made for the property and add a wonderful texture to the space. The two story living and dining room, along with the Door County stone fireplace are the favored gathering spots throughout the day, with the many sliding glass doors, you feel like you are outside. The Tempur-Pedic king size bed make slumber a dream.

Winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to the Lakefront home. We really enjoyed our stay, the house was as great as we remembered it. The location is off the beaten path but not to from places to eat and shop, which is what we wanted. We would definitely consider going back again

Don't know how it could be better

  • 4 of 5

We definitely enjoyed our stay.

everything was nice, it was easy to find, the house is at the edge of the Park.

The house is very confortable,

The only thing is the oven is small, but it was clear at the beginning so it was not a surprise...

Janet is very quick to respond to any questions you may have....

It was defiantly a wonderful vacation.

Thank you!

Beautiful Home, Awesome Location, Ammenities Plentiful

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here from 11/03 - 11/06.Three couples celebrating 45 years of marriage. House was well stocked, clean, had beautiful views, from every window in the house. Although the weather was a bit rainy, it did not dampen our fabulous time. Scenery and privacy were appreciated. And, just a short walk to Cave Point County Park. We WILL be back in the summer to take advantage of the beautiful grounds and outdoor scenery.. now on to the Packer Game!

Lovely quiet house right next to a State Park

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house on Lake Michigan. Beautiful sun and moonrise views from all the bedrooms. Last property before a State Park. Great for walking along the lake. Short drive from restaurants, breweries and outdoor activities. Perfect Door County retreat!

Great Escape From City Life

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here while I was in town for a friend's wedding- we enjoyed sitting out on the lakeside deck so much we ended up being late for the ceremony! The house was clean and well-kept, and Janet was an attentive, communicative host. Would highly recommend for anyone looking for a peaceful lakeside retreat just a short walk away from beautiful parks (Cave Point & Whitefish Dunes) and a quick drive from Door County's most popular shops & restaurants. Book it and don't look back!

Lovely home, just needs a little tender care

  • 4 of 5

The picture of the house on the web from the lake is a bit deceiving, there is no shore area that is easily accessible or walkable. Wave action was amazing. We had a fire in the fire pit by the shore the first night, night sky was beautiful and saw the milky way! The yard needs some work especially in front or maybe the wild look is intended. The overall cleanliness of the house didn't really meet our expectations, had to thoroughly clean the toaster oven before using and the cabinet doors were sticky and greasy, but overall the house was very nice and liked that all bedrooms had their own bathrooms. The propane grill would not light so had to use the small weber instead, no big deal. TV was located in the loft area, beany bags and the futon not really very comfortable seating for adults , thought it would be better to have the TV in the living room downstairs or add an additional TV for adult viewing. The remote didn't work despite changing the batteries, but was still able to watch the great selection of movies available, plus the ones we brought. Never did get the internet to connect either, may have been due to the windy conditions on the lake. Overall, we had a great time and enjoyed being out on the deck each night watching the waves roll in. Sunrises were beautiful too!

Owner's Response: One of the aspects of Lake Michigan is that the shoreline ebbs and flows. There is easy access to the water from our house but what the individual who wrote this review pointed out is the lake is higher this year so you can't walk along the shoreline. Sorry to hear trouble with grill and remote. If I or our local caretaker are made aware of such issues, we'll remedy them immediately. Unfortunately we didn't know until reading this review. The cleaning lady must have mistakenly missed toaster oven. My apologies. We never have a problem with the internet, and I was up right after this group and had no connectivity problems. Wish they would have called. The yard is more natural in the front but it is weeded and has plantings. Path is mowed from front to back. Lakeside yard is completely mowed. We aim to have all renters very satisfied! I'll add lake level to site description to ensure future renters have accurate expectations. If you join us, please call with any questions or concerns. You can see by other reviews the vast majority of our renters are very happy.
