Why Bill & Nancy chose Door County

This property has been in my family since 1964. My father built the original structure in the late 1960's and has since been rebuilt.

What makes this house unique

Direct access to Lake Michigan from the back door, beautiful lake views from all points of the house and miles of sandy beach.

Comfortable, beautifully maintained home on the nicest beach in Door County

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been renting this property for several years and we enjoy everything about this home and the location on Whitefish Bay. If you are looking for a peaceful respite away from the tourist crowd this is it. The beds are comfortable and all the amenities of home are offered. The beach is adjacent to the state park the area offers many passive recreational options for nature lovers, bicyclists, hikers and more. We enjoy shopping the nearby local farm markets and preparing our own food in the kitchen or on the grill. Sand beaches are rare in Door County and hand down this one is the best on the peninsula. The water is clean, clear and great for swimming. We are long time Door County vacationers and after 35 years this is the best place we have found to vacation. Please respect the unique natural history of the dunes area in Whitefish Bay when visiting so people can enjoy it for years to com.

Perfect Location for Quiet

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay here. The house was very clean and well maintained. The location was perfect. The beach here was perfect for our boys to explore and it was just out the back door. We loved hiking and exploring in Whitefish Dunes.

Personally I got up every morning to watch the sunrise over Lake Michigan (right from the back deck).

The area is a nice quiet place to relax and enjoy the outdoors without the hustle and bustle. It is quite easy to get to anywhere else that you need to go. A good local place that we ate at was the Tin Plate. It is just down the road. Our favorite place (this time) was Wild Tomato Wood-fired Pizza and Grille.

My sons loved the Farm (it is very close by). Jerry was a hit along with feeding goats and pigs.

We are planning on coming back to the area again as this was our first visit to Door County. There is much more for us to explore and this is a perfect place to do that.

Cleaning Fees extra. The cleaning service is at $25.00 an hour. There will always be a charge but the cleaner you leave it the less it will cost. The reason for the cleaning charge is we don’t know how the last renters cleaned the bathrooms and kitchen so our cleaner goes over those areas and sanitizes those areas for the next renters, just to make sure! Cleaning usually ranges from 3 to 6 hours depending how clean the cottage is left. The cleaning will be taken out of your Damage deposit.

We supply pillows, blankets and comforters. You can bring your own sheets, pillow cases and towels etc. or we offer a “Linen Service, which is $150.00. The linen service included sheets, pillow cases, bath towels, hand towels, and wash clothes for all guests. We also supply dish towels and bath mats in the Linen Fee. If you choose the Linen Service we will include this in the rental amount.

50% down and the $500.00 damage deposit with rental agreement.
The balance is due 30 day prior to rental date.
