About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-7)

This well built ranch home sits on 2.5 beautiful wooded, private acres. The interior of the home is primarily beautifully crafted wood. There are two bedrooms yet there is also 2 Great Rooms! Two, 25x25 ft. rooms with cathedral ceilings and lots of open space. In one of the great rooms there is a door for privacy and a pull out queen sleeper sofa. In the main great room there is a twin size day bed under a window. This home sits with the most beautiful views of Green Bay waters. Directly facing west, the most amazing sunsets are right out your door, and can be viewed from the master bedroom, dining room, and 2 great rooms.

Every year we like to surprise our return guests with something new. Most recently, removed carpet to expose gorgeous maple floors, washer and dryer, new decks, new furnishings, new roof, and much more!

There is a large window porch that has an eating table and a large sofa. There is a roomy open air deck that faces the water attached to the home. There is another large deck halfway down to the water, great for outdoor eating. Then there is a 3rd deck down by the water, perfect for watching the amazing sunsets. There is also steps that to to the water from this deck.

This home sits on a rolling hill filled with grass that walks you down to the 280 ft. of private waterfront. This beach consists of small and large rock. Great for swimming as there is nice shelf rock to walk on in the water. There is also a nice drop off approx. 50ft out, great for fishing, diving or snorkeling.

You will see fishing boats at a distance as this is a popular area for can see them, but they would have trouble seeing you. This home is in a private setting with lots of mature trees.

About Amy Jorgenson

This home was built, and has been in my family since the early 1950's.

Amy Jorgenson purchased this house in 1953

Why Amy Jorgenson chose Door County

My grandpa built this home and at the time he could have chose any place on the Island as there was lots of open space. He liked the high property (to avoid any chance of flooding) yet easy water access. Deep water frontage so he could launch his boat. Convenient location, 10 minutes to town, less than 5 minutes to the Ferry. Peaceful neighborhood with beautiful mature trees. Of course the number one reason, the amazing sunsets year round!

What makes this house unique

Privacy, able to swim with no one else around. Dinner outside, sitting on the deck watching the sunset. Great for family reunions as there is so much 'living' space. Never feel crowded.

We pulled up and realized the house was bigger than expected. The ferry ride and drive was beautiful and loved tht the house was totally stocked with the basics for us to cook and enjoy the week. The views are amazing and the people of washington island are just as friendly as ever. We will be back for sure! Also be sure to check out the rec center and pool in town we had a blast on rainy days there!

island stay

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a better place to stay. The cabin had so many rooms we didn't even use them all. It would be a perfect place for 8. There are 3 decks, we used them all, as well as the fire pit at the shore. 2 Great Sunsets, 1 fog sunset that Cool. It's easy to find if you know where it is. We paddled to Rock Island for the boat house and light station tour. Joined the Bitters Club, climbed the tower, had a Chicago style hot dog at Jackson Harbor, 2 great ferry rides 1 splashy 1 calm. I recommend it. We've been spoiled to come back.

Fantastic Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Awesome experience.

I must say that I never knew such a place even existed in this country. I thought places like this were only written about in fictional books. Washington Island is without any doubt a place that everyone should visit at least once in their lifetime. (although, if you go once, you will be going back again)

The Funk cabin made our trip even that much more "vintage". With all the islands history and character, I could not have imagined staying anywhere else. The cabin expresses the same kind of historic charm that the rest of the island expresses.

The sunsets! I cant even put into words to describe the sunsets from the Funk cabin. By far the best sunset I have ever seen. People all across the country have seen nice sunsets, but there are not many places where you can see the sun kiss the water as it sets.

Its all about making memories with friends and loved ones. Our stay at the cabin did just that. I thank the owners for such an incredible stay and I so very much look forward to returning in the near future.

This home is located only approx. 1.5 miles from the ferry terminal. Enjoy the boat ride across, drive right to the home, and settle in!. Gorgeous woods surround this good size ranch home. There are 3 decks for you to enjoy the outdoors, one of which is right by the water with steps going to the beach. Privacy, yet great location! Enjoy the most beautiful sunsets right out your front door!
