About the Property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + futon 1 Bath,

Enjoy the classic simplicity of a traditional Door County cottage vacation, away from the stresses of everyday life.

Terra Cottages is located near the tip of the Door Peninsula and a short walk from the village of Gills Rock, a favorite destination for kayakers and cyclists. The excursion boat to Washington Island, fresh and smoked fish, an excellent restaurant, and the Door County Maritime Museum are among the things that make Gills Rock a special place to stay.

We are just a short drive from the rugged, unspoiled beauty of Newport State Park, a semi-wilderness area offering hiking, swimming, and nature activities. The many performances, restaurants, galleries and shops throughout Door County are also easily accessible.

While staying with us you take one of the regular fishing charters that leave the village daily or enjoy a crossing on an excursion boat across the beauty of Death’s Door Passage to Washington Island, the oldest Icelandic settlement in North America.

Wisconsin Travel Green certified, we are committed to preserving the environment and natural resources of Door County. We are also business sponsors of the Door County Land Trust
