About the Property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

On the shore of the most beautiful bay in Northern Door County, Cappy Cottage is a lovingly cared for family retreat nestled in a forest of cedar, pine, and birch trees. There is over 300 feet of private shoreline facing east over North Bay and Lake Michigan. You must be warned that your early mornings may be interrupted by incredible sunrises. Fortunately, you will be able to make up the lost sleep as the only sounds you hear at night are the breeze in the trees and the crackling of the Milky Way overhead.

North Bay Drive is a very quiet, little traveled road which makes it a perfect place for couples to spend a quiet week or a family with kids to safely run amok in the summer sun The woods surrounding Cappy have many “secret spots” to explore and the beach is full of fossil bearing rocks dating back to when the area was under a tropical sea. The water off Cappy’s beach shallows gradually and warms sooner than many of the Door County beaches. The north end of the bay is a wonderful playground of sand flats and shallow water.


The yard in front of Cappy is an inviting place to while away a summer afternoon reading and snoozing. It features the oldest, intact shuffle board court in Door County. (though mostly used for sidewalk chalk art these days). At the end of a day spent adventuring in the County, you have a grill and picnic table for a cookout or you can prepare dinner in Cappy’s well equipped kitchen.

Best of all, Cappy offers the charms of the Quiet Side of Door County yet is 10 minutes away from all the activities in the villages and our terrific parks.

There is a master bedroom with a king and another room with 4 twins (bunk beds).

But don’t take our word for it! Quotes from the Cappy Cottage guest book:

* 'We had a wonderful time at Cappy Cottage. It felt like the coveted invitation to a relative's cabin......thanks for sharing your family's legacy with us.'

* 'My wife searched this space out and, while I am impossible to please, I have not a single complaint. Our 5 year old knew we chose a winner once he saw the marble run in the children's room.'

* 'We have stayed a many cabins in a lot of different places and Cappy truly rates at the top. Great ammenities. Great ambiance. Love the tender touches of years gone by.'
