Beautiful Lakefront Home in Southern Door County

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Located at the end of a private road in Southern Door County, this home offers the privacy, peace & tranquility that are the perfect alternative to todays hectic lifestyle. Our three bedroom, two bath private home nestled in the woods on the shore of Lake Michigan offers amazing views of the lake, sky & nature. Every window looks out to the water and/or woods.

Enjoy a cocktail at the fire pit on a moon & starlit evening over the lake. Fall asleep to the waves of Lake Michigan lapping on the shore. The early risers can enjoy the magnificent sunrises whether they are just turning over in bed or up making early morning coffee.

Pass your day relaxing on the screened porch, sleeping in the lakeside hammock, enjoying the hot tub overlooking Lake Michigan, or sitting at the end of a rare 40 foot dock watching for the lake freighters to pass by a few miles off shore.

Looking for more action? Door County has it all! After you have enjoyed swimming or fishing off the dock, playing yard games and watching the kids enjoy the 'tree-fort' - travel north up the road for hiking, boating, restaurants, golf, wineries, shopping, or famous Door County Fish Boils! And don't forget to visit some of the 5 fabulous state parks in Door County. Or head south a few miles to the Algoma marina for some of the best charter fishing Lake Michigan has to offer.

We know you also want the comforts of home - so that is where renting our private home (versus a rental cottage) really differentiates itself. Yes, the kitchen has it all - stove, refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, disposal, pantry, island, skylight, pots, pans, utensils and bar glasses. It also has a table in a bay window with one of the best views of Lake Michigan. The master bedroom is on the main floor with a king-sized bed, TV and private entrance to the main floor bath, which has a whirlpool tub and separate shower. The two upstairs bedrooms are large and hold a king size bed and a queen size bed plus a crib. Each room is spacious and has plenty of room for additional air mattresses. The same is true for the lower level living space. The living room has a wood burning fireplace, TV, DVD along with a selection of movies for the whole family to enjoy. There is a finished lower level living space with TV, video games, game tables and board games to enjoy day or night.

BBQ on the Weber gas grill then enjoy your meal either at the outdoor fire pit table, screened porch, or the beautiful dining room table. All with great views spanning Lake Michigan!

We promise you will be as relaxed or busy as you would like during your stay. You will never want to leave.

Please allow us to welcome you and your family to our little piece of paradise!

Great !

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful well-maintained home right on the shores of Lake Michigan. Lots to do but for a group of old farts like us we just enjoyed relaxing and listening to the waves.

Six adults slept comfortably in this spacious home. Great find we would return.

Wonderful family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this beautiful and spacious home last August (it's just taken me a while to finally write this review!). It was our last family vacation before our oldest was heading off to college, and this turned out to be the perfect location. We enjoyed the lake, the hot tub, and relaxing on the porch and the patio. We will definitely return if we get the chance.

Relaxing getaway right on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home with a fantastic view of the lake! You can certainly tell the pride they take in their ownership; it was very clean and well maintained. Everything you can think of that you might need is there; including tons of information with maps and books of things to do in Door County, etc. It was nice being just far enough away from it all, but yet close enough to take an enjoyable, short ride to the other sights there in Door County, viewing the beautiful countryside on your way. We enjoyed our stay there very much, especially the peace and quiet and the chance to get away from it all and relax!

Lake House

  • 5 of 5

This house was the most comfortable house that we have ever stayed in. It was very clean, the yard was gorgeous and the fire pit area was very inviting. Loved everything about this place. Regretfully we did not have time to use the hot tub. We went Salmon fishing two nights of our stay in Algoma.The kids had fun with all the yard games. A fun place to go is Washington Island and go geocaching. The owners were very accommodating.

I would definitely recommend this to families looking to have a great relaxing vacation. We hope to make this a yearly place to come back to.

Amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

This house went well beyond our expectations. It was perfect for a girls weekend retreat to get away and enjoy the lake. The views of the lake are amazing and can be seen from almost every room in the house. It provided so many options for things to do, we didn't get to everything! I would definitely recommend to a friend and families looking to get away!
