Inside the cottage you will find plenty of space for a large family or a get-together with friends. Two upstairs bedrooms share a bath and sleep six with two sets of bunk beds and two more twin beds.

The first floor bedroom has a queen bed and adjacent bath. The greatroom has a wood burning fireplace and a dining area adjoining a fully equipped kitchen. A wrap-around deck gets plenty of sun amidst the dense foliage.

'Gingerbread Cottage' offers privacy, convenience and charm at a low introductory price.

Great cabin for family, Nice private setting

  • 5 of 5

We visit Door County every summer and usually we are camping. We have three children and two under the age of 2 so we decided to get a place this time. It has a nice private setting and the owner was very nice to deal with. The Cabin is very nicely stocked with everything you need and we grilled out for almost all our dinners for the whole week. The owner even provided charcoal and a gas grill for cooking. There is also a nice fire pit on the side of the house and plenty of firewood to burn. Overall we loved the place and would definitely recommend it to anyone!!

Well maintained, nice cottage feel. Plenty of room in bedrooms & living room

  • 5 of 5

The property has very nice cottage feel to it. Bedrooms and living room have plenty of space. It rained most our trip but the backyard looked nice with lots of seating. Lots of firewood was provided. A gas grill is also provided and worked very well. It is located very close to Fish Creek making for an easy drive.

Quiet, comfortable Door County Get-away

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was clean and had everything we needed for a weekend get-away to Door County, one of our favorite places. It's location was perfect, tucked in the woods between Egg Harbor and Fish Creek. The owner was easy to work with too.

Woodsy, private, and cozy.

  • 2 of 5

Centrally located near the area wineries. Enjoyed the campfire. Could use some T-L-C inside and out (ie. Light bulbs, switches, doors, window frames, shower head, musty odor, and aging deck planks).
