About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Our Retreat at Hedgehog Harbor offers the very best of Door County living. HOUSE IS RENTED 14 DAYS PER YEAR. The expansive deck as well as every room in the home (4400 sq ft) offer views of the lake, the fishing village of Gills Rock, and Washington Island. Below the home, large flat rocks at the shoreline provide the perfect spot from which to swim, launch kayaks, picnic, watch the sunset or just enjoy this special bit of the Door.

The modern home is filled with natural light and surrounded by nature. Lovely antiques, Door County art, and a separate library help to create an atmosphere in which to relax and enjoy life. You will find hardwood floors, granite countertops, a separate TV viewing area, and a flower filled garden.

The home is located at the end of a quiet road, a perfect starting point for bike riding and hiking. Ellison Bay Bluff Park is a mile away; it is two miles to Gills Rock, where you will find breakfast at the Shoreline, coffee and the best cherry pie at Charlene's, fresh smoked fish at Voights, and the best little maritime museum. There are good restaurants and plenty of activity close by, but you will find it hard to leave this private and very special retreat.

Lull yourself in the comfortable hammock during the day and dine on the deck in the evening to the sounds of the terns fishing for supper and the music of the Island Clipper passing below.

Tranquility at Ellison Bay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time with our family at Ellison Bay. I had heard for years how wonderful Door County was from my wife who had spent summers in Door County growing up. This beautiful home has been hand crafted by the owners as a labor of love. The views out across Ellison Bay are spectacular. It is so quiet that you lose your self amidst the surrounding nature. The house has a large living area and modern kitchen. It also has a magnificent master bedroom and bathroom. Downstairs there are are two more bedrooms. It is the perfect location to explore all that Door County has to offer. It is close to Sister Bay, Ellison Bay and Gills Rock. You can hike, bike, enjoy nearby restaurants and fish boils and most of all just unwind.

This was our first visit to this AMAZING home. The owners are wonderful and helpful. The house is stunning and beautifully laid out. Three bedrooms and three full bathrooms and two living rooms. The kitchen is wonderful and the open floor plan has so much light and is cozy at the same time. The view from all the windows and the fabulous deck is second to none. And the owners allowed us to bring our two female Labradors with their kennels. Fabulous week!

Wonderful retreat in Door County

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have been able to spend a couple of weeks at Hedgehog Harbor for several years and have never been disappointed. Whether dining on the huge deck, swimming from the rocks, or just enjoying the breeze on a summer's evening in this light filled, lovely home filled with antiques and Door County art, we have enjoyed each moment. We can walk/jog to the nearest park, to the local coffee house or to one of DC's best restaurants, watch the Arctic terns as they feed over the lake in the evening sunset, or just relax after a day of exploring in this very private, comfortable setting. Very peaceful, quiet and private. The perfect get away destination in northern Door County
