About the property

Family Friendly, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This hand-hewn log home was crafted by local tradesmen using hardwoods from Door County. It is simple, beautiful, and will provide the perfect setting for your Door County 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 twin-bedded sleeping room.

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 Patty Reilly-Murphy

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.

Patty Reilly-Murphy purchased this cabin in 2002

Why Patty Reilly-Murphy chose Door County

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.

A Wonderful first experience to Door County

  • 5 of 5

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!

Perfect place for a getaway.

  • 5 of 5

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!

Owner's Response: 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!

  • 5 of 5

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!!

Fantastic location for serene get away

  • 5 of 5

One of the best VRBO's we've stayed in. Great attention to detail, hand soap, shampoo and conditioner in the shower. All the little things add up. Watching the hummingbirds every day was a treat. We rode our bikes to the beach and to downtown egg harbor on most days. Just Fyi, cell phone service is not really possible however, there was a landlines which was much appreciated.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for noticing the little things--it's really important to us that our guests have a good experience and we work hard to make that happen. As for cell phone service, we all use Verizon and that works quite well--AT&T is a bit dicey as is Sprint--which, as you pointed out, is why we have the landline. We hope to host you again!

Perfect family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Murphy's in Egg Harbor in July. What a wonderful time! Beautiful log home with everything we needed and then some. Great central location in Door County. We enjoyed our family wedding in Sturgeon Bay. Had a great time bicycling on Washington Island, golf, nearby beaches etc. Perfect for our family of 8 ranging from ages 3-63! Thank you for sharing your home! Sincerely, Michaelyn Hyde
