This hand-hewn log home is truly a work of art! Crafted by local tradesmen using hardwoods from Door County, It is simple, beautiful, and will provide the perfect setting for your vacation.
Upon entering the cabin, the first thing you'll note is the soaring fieldstone fireplace reaching up to the vaulted ceiling. A fully-equipped kitchen opens to a lovely dining room, mirrored on the hearth's other side by the warm, spacious great room. The main level also houses one of the full bathrooms and two of the bedrooms, each with queen size beds.
The upper floor master bedroom loft has its own sitting area, complete with woodland views, and a large en-suite bath.
The lower level of the cabin houses the TV/family room, (with wood-burning stove,) and another bedroom.
Set on 4.5 beautifully wooded acres ,this special home provides escape and sanctuary in peaceful surroundings, but is within minutes of dozens of activities. If you're a golfer, boater, hiker, photographer, skiier, or cyclist, there is simply no better place to be! Fine dining, art galleries, live theater, wineries, and day spas are also just minutes away.
You don't have to leave Birch Lane to enjoy special times, however. The fire pit provides the perfect setting for telling stories, playing guitar, and making s'mores. And in the winter, there simply isn't anything that can warm your spirit like sipping your favorite beverage in front of a huge crackling fire.
Families can spend a lifetime in Door County and still discover new things to see and do. Start creating your memories today by booking your family vacation at Murphy's Birch Lane Log Cabin.

About Murphy Family
We discovered Door County in the 1980s. Every summer we made sure to spend at least one week together on the shores of Green Bay. It was our dream to own a home here, and in 2002, while on a bike ride through Birch Lane, we found this home. We have experienced many milestones here, including the wedding of our oldest son, and we look forward to celebrating many more as our family grows.
Murphy Family purchased this Cabin in 2002
Why Murphy Family chose Egg Harbor
Door County is our favorite place in the world, and being in Egg Harbor affords us easy access to the entire Peninsula. The natural beauty and peaceful setting of Birch Lane cannot be beat; we are tucked away in the woods but just minutes from town. Sturgeon Bay is just 12 miles south of us, and we appreciate the convenience of being close to 'the city'--especially in the off season.
What makes this Cabin unique
From the moment you enter the cabin, you will feel welcome & at home. It is beautifully appointed, yet very family friendly. It's the perfect place for a family reunion, but it's also the ideal place if you're seeking to relax in solitude. No matter how you choose to spend your time here, it is certain to be memorable.

Great property for family gatherings in an awesome location
We stayed here on a impromptu Spring Break getaway with our adult children and significant others (6 of us). I highly recommend this home for your family getaway.
The home was fantastic. It was very clean upon arrival with all the basic amenities. The layout of the house is perfect for family time ... the fireplace is beautiful and it is so relaxing to curl up with a good book. Kitchen is set up well for family meals; the open concept is great. There is also lower level with a tv and another bedroom, which would be perfect it you have younger children or more people.
The location was perfect for us. It really makes you feel you are away from it all, but in reality the house is only 10 minutes from Egg Harbor. Beautiful property and surrounding area.
The concierge service was very attentive as well. They reached out to me the week before our stay with instructions and to see if we had any special requests. I did have to reach out to them twice for questions and they were very prompt to respond.
I would definitely recommend this for your family. If we come back to Door County, I am fairly certain we would stay here again.
We're so glad you enjoyed your spring break! I know the weather wasn't great, but glad you had fun spending time together at the cabin. That fireplace certainly can make a gloomy day enjoyable! We're also glad to hear that you enjoyed the concierge service--they are wonderful! We look forward to hosting you again.
Cozy, beautiful log cabin home in ideal setting
We had a wonderful vacation at this home over Thanksgiving weekend. It was exactly what we had hoped, a cozy house with nice amenities to enjoy with our family. They had many nice touches to make you feel right at home: lots of great books, beautiful 2-sided fireplace, comfortable beds, Keurig coffee maker, Sirius XM radio to name a few. It was a great location as well. A short drive into town but nestled away in the woods. We had never been to Door County so we weren’t familiar with all the small towns but this ended up being a perfect location. We loved the village of Egg Harbor and visiting the other nearby towns. I would highly recommend this beautiful log cabin home.
Kirsten, thanks so much for taking the time to write a review of your experience at our cabin. We're glad you guys enjoyed yourselves and hope you'll come back and stay with us again!
Fabulous getaway in the Woods.
The log home was everything we had hoped for when I booked it to celebrate my wife's birthday. The location was terrific and provided the privacy and serenity we desired. The home was furnished and decorated beautifully. Loved staying here...
Jim, thanks for taking the time to write. We're thrilled we were able to provide the backdrop for your wife's big birthday week! Please do come again. Every day is a special occasion in Door County!
A Wonderful first experience to Door County
Very rustic setting with a very nice 4 bedroom cabin. Close to about anything you would want to do in Door county yet hidden in the woods so that you have your privacy. We all enjoy this wonderful cabin in the woods!
Thank you for the nice review, Don. We're glad you enjoyed your first trip to Door County!
Perfect place for a getaway.
My family and I had the pleasure of staying here for a long weekend while attending a wedding at the Horseshoe Bay Beach Club. The home was very close to where we needed to be for the wedding. It also had easy access to Route 42, which we travelled often to get to the many other parts of Door County. The home is nicely furnished and well cared for. The beds were very comfortable. The amenities (especially the Keurig) were great. If you choose to rent this lovely home, the 2 bedrooms on the main floor are great for those who don't do well with stairs. Should you have a little one who does no know better, the basement bedroom would probably be the best choice to keep them safe. Would absolutely stay here again!
Thank you for the review, Diane--we're so glad you enjoyed the cabin. And yes, the lower level bedroom is perfect for kids--especially teens--who want their privacy and/or want to sleep in! We hope you'll be back!
Great time in a log cabin in the woods!
Our family of 7 adults and an 8 year old really enjoyed the log cabin. It was snug and cozy. It had everything we needed and then some. Nice big firepit and deck we enjoyed, not to mention the gas grill! Big tub and gorgeous shower. Too warm for inside fire but it was def a centerpiece to look forward to in cooler times. Leave your electronics in the car. It does have wifi but you're in the woods folks so don't count on it! Get outside in the beautiful surroundings they have created, play ball, ride bikes or sit on one of 3 decks and read a book. The only down side for us (light sleepers) was the noise that carries thru from the loft. BTW the loft is amazing, true log cabin experience. The owners were quick to respond to any questions we had, huge for us. Can't wait to return in cool weather and use that fireplace!!
It's so nice to hear how much you enjoyed the cabin! Thanks for taking the time to write a review of your experience. Door County is lovely in the fall and winter, and you're right, having that fireplace to keep you warm and cozy really adds to the northwoods experience. We hope you'll come agan!
