About the Property

2 Bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, Sleeps 1-4 persons

From this sun lit clearing in the 3.5 acre woods along the Door County shore, visitors will experience the tranquility, the freshness, and the beauty of this peninsula. The backyard makes a perfect morning birding site. Grab an afternoon nap on the deck. At night observe the brilliant sky and conduct your own meteor count. Awaken to the song birds; fall asleep to the sounds of waves. Explore the woods on the property, looking for wild flowers in the spring or visit any of several local parks, located nearby: Newport Park, Door Bluff County Park. Hike or bike the local roads summer and fall or head for many designated hiking areas. Sled the lane in the winter and x-country at nearby trails. Take a short walk to the local coffee house in Gills Rock for morning coffee or midmorning cherry pie. Have dinner at The Shore Line Restaurant in Gills Rock , one of Door's best restaurants; it, too, is just a short stroll.
