About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-11)

This 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath vacation home suitable for year-round living has 8 twin beds, 1 queen size bed, and 1 youth bed (sleeps 10 plus 1 child). The house sits on a grassy level lot just 100 feet back from the white stone beach which faces Green Bay on Washington Island. The sunsets are amazing! The beach is suitable for swimming, it is shallow quite a way out.

The main level has two bedrooms with 2 twin beds in each room, 1 bathroom with a shower and laundry facilities, a great-room, kitchen, half-bath, and a deck that spans the full lake-side width of the house. The large eat-in, fully equipped kitchen has a view of the water and a sliding glass door leading out to the deck. The large great-room with a game table corner has a wall of windows facing the lake, and a wood burning stove. The front entry has an open ceiling with stairway to the upper level.

The upper level has a master bedroom with a balcony facing the lake and 2 twin beds. It shares a full bath with the 4th dorm-style bedroom which has 1 queen bed, 2 twin beds, and a youth bed.

There are board games and card games for fun nights around the table. It's a great place for a nighttime outside game of flashlight tag or hide'n'seek. On clear nights the stars are spectacular. Enjoy a campfire on the beach, weather permitting.

Television reception is very spotty and limited. We suggest you use the DVD and VCR.

The location of the house is ideal. It is 1.5 miles to the main store, library, rec center, and various restaurants. The grassy yard around the house is well-suited for play activities. Washington Island is a wonderful place for bike rides, and you can keep your bikes in the garage.

Summer rentals (July through Labor Day) are weekly, Saturday to Saturday. September, October rentals can be nightly, 2 night minimum.

About Linda Lind

Mom came to America after growing up in Norway and loves the beauty of nature. She loves to knit, and finds beautiful yarn at Siever's. Serving coffee to friends who visit, and worshiping at Bethel Church are some of her favorite things to do on Washington Island.

Linda Lind purchased this house in 1985

Why Linda Lind chose Washington

Washington Island reminds her of the island she and the family spent summers on in Norway, when growing up. The small farms, birch trees and clean cool water remind her of home.

What makes this house unique

She enjoys the peace, beauty and quiet....punctuated by the flurry of activity when children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren come. The house on Washington Island is where some of our best family times take place.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"We have rented many homes on Washington Island starting when Christopher was 1, 14 years ago. The family all agrees, the Eeg home was the best. Major reasons : 1 easy water access for swimming, kayaking, boating, and fishing. 2 the sunsets

3 all the twin beds 4 the lawn for badminton 5 close to town

6 comfortable roomy home.

Glad we found you, we will be back next year."

Comfortable, welcoming house

  • 5 of 5

Sunset views, lake frontage, ample beds, bedrooms and baths, the special aura of the island, the friendliness of island residents -- what more could you want. It is a special place for us to take our grandchildren and family members. They fish, hike rock island , and play cards and board games - and especially spend time together.

We love being on the west side of the island, close to the water.

  • 4 of 5

The house is large enough to accommodate our family of 7. We enjoy walking down the driveway and the road. The house is close to town. We appreciate the fire wood provided and love the sunsets.

Water and sunsets are great

  • 5 of 5

My family has stayed in this cottage for a week each summer for several years. We keep coming back back because we love the location and the comfortable and clean home. We can swim and kayak from the beach and there's plenty of space to enjoy badminton on the lawn.

WE stayed here with our entire family. There was a total of 7 adults and 2 children. It was perfect. Plenty of room for everyone. 2 1/2 baths was definitely a bonus! Well stocked kitchen with everything you need to make big meals. Excellent swim beach. People that own the home are great. Huge deck to enjoy meals and morning coffee.

Very homey . Close to town, great location. We will be back! Highly recommend this property. Thank you Linda for everything !

Heavenly Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying at this vacation property on Washington Island. It feels like some friends let us stay at their house for the week. We spent many hours chatting while sitting on the deck and we loved taking our morning coffee down to the waterfront. This is a tranquil place with the feel of "home".
