About Pat or Jim Creed

Pat and Jim are Chicago natives who lived in the mountains just outside of Breckenridge, Colorado previous to moving to Door County with their African Grey Parrot, Smokey, in 2004. Jim is a General Contractor with an expertise in building log homes, and Pat is a Graphic Designer, artist and gardener. Creed Cottage was completely remodeled by Jim and it is our first venture into property management. The cottage is in a fantastic location and we are very proud of what a comfortable and lovely vacation rental it has turned out to be.

Pat or Jim Creed purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Pat or Jim Creed chose Door County

After searching the entire peninsula looking for our own home, we always gravitated toward the open spaces and free atmosphere of Ellison Bay. We love northern Door county because of the close proximity to the water, parks and wildlife. We are sailors and our boat is kept at a quaint private dock just minutes from our home. When the cottage became available, we purchased it because of it's nearby location to our own home, and proceeded to do a complete remodel.

What makes this cottage unique

Creed Cottage is very homey and comfortable. Our rates INLUDE the 11% local and state taxes, so you can be comfortable that there are no hidden fees - most rental costs do not include the taxes in their quoted rates.

If you just want to relax and not have to hop in the car to get everywhere, you can feel right at home. Go for walks that will bring you right to the waterfront parks and beach and directly into town, where you can find just about everything you might be looking for. Beautiful just about every time of day, especially sunrise and sunset.

Small Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 chose Creed Cottage for our 1st trip from Chicago to Door County. Prior to leaving Pat gave me the most useful info and trip ideas saving me time I just did not have. The Creeds are active DC folks and know it well. All of their recommendations turned out to be wonderful. The cottage itself is pristine, attention to detail amazing, and the woodwork-so cool. The beds are super comfy (we stayed 5 nights) and great to come "home" to. This is not a large cottage but we liked that. Ellison Bay is beautiful-if I could do it all over I would have taken Pat's advice and kept more local/relaxed more. Next time. Thanks to the Creeds for sharing their home with us!!-Rachael and fam

so relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Excellent home away from home in a perfect location out of the tourist hustle bustle of fish creek and sister bay, but near enough to these locations for an easy breakfast or shopping trip. Ellison Bay is relaxed, ether local store (Pioneer) has it all, and the owners of the cabin will go out of thway to make your stay what you need it to be.

Two Couples - Sightseeing

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Creed's Cottage for five nights in July of 2012. We were two couples traveling together and the accommodations worked out perfectly for us. The cottage was immaculate and met all our needs.

It was our first trip to Door County and the location was perfect. We had meals at the Viking Inn, Mink River Supper Club and Pasta Vino. All served delicious meals and were an easy stroll from the cottage. We walked to the public beach for sunsets and also drove to nearby Ellison Bluff for beautiful views of the bay.

Our days were spent out exploring and we packed a lot in during our stay. After a day amongst the crowds and busier villages we were happy to return to the quiet and privacy of Ellison Bay. We visited during the week and spent most evenings relaxing on the deck, but still found a pleasant amount of nightlife at the area establishments that were within walking distance.

All four of us (including the two guys who didn't exactly have Door County on their bucket list) would definitely stay at Creed's Cottage again and recommend it highly.

Biking trip to Door County

  • 5 of 5

Much to our dismay, we were unable to get reservations at our usual spot in Jacksonport this year for the Door County Century bike ride. Looking around, I came across Creed Cottage and sent an enquiry to the owners. I got a quick and friendly response and set up reservations, much to our relief. The cottage was very clean, cozy, and well-equipped for us as we do all our own cooking. We all slept well on beds more comfortable than my mattress at home. There were great back roads to bike on the other days while we were there and we took a very nice ride up to Gil's Rock and over for a hike at Newport Beach State Park. A great little store and restaurant were a short walk from the cottage, as well as beautiful sunsets over the water. I would not hesitate to recommend Creed Cottage to others.
