Popular, recently updated and well appointed, 2 bedroom 2 full bath cottage, with open floor plan. As you enter the door, to your right is the dining area, with table and chairs. To your left is the galley kitchen with breakfast bar and stools. Kitchen includes range/oven, refrigerator, microwave, toaster, dishwasher, per cup coffee brewer as well as dishes, pots & pans, glassware etc. Cook a little, cook a lot , whatever the mood. Off the kitchen is a full bath with tub.
The living room is straight ahead. Windows line the entire wall along the dining area and living room affording you a view of the wooded area outside the cottage. There is a queen size sofa sleeper, comfy chairs, cable TV, DVD player, WiFi, and radio.
The two private bedrooms are accessed to your left (off the kitchen.) The master bedroom hosts a queen size bed, closet and en suite bathroom including shower. The second bedroom has 2 twin beds and closet.
Outside patio features dining table with chairs, charcoal grill, hammock, and urban fire pit. Dedicated parking is right out front.

Located on Main Street in front of cottage (very short walk.) is the Blue Horse Beach Café est. 2001. All guests of The Java Hut enjoy discounts on everything offered at the café including breakfast, lunch, dinner, teas, and smoothies, as well as a full espresso bar.
A great feature of this cottage is its ideal location. Even though The Java Hut is downtown it is still in a quiet area so you get the convenience of shopping, dining, and outdoor recreation but you still have a good measure of privacy as well.

Fish Creek is considered the heart of Northern Door County with its shopping, galleries with artist in residence, Orchard Markets, Marinas, and professional theaters as well as a classic outdoor movie theater, a Winery, and an Art School.

The Java Hut cottage rental is the perfect spot to access everything most even by foot.

Across Main Street from the cottage property is the town beach with sand and grass and a play area for children. The water is shallow for some distance out, good for small children.

The backdrop to the beach is the 1,400 acre, jewel of Door county, Peninsula State Park. just a few blocks from the cottage you can enter the park for hiking, biking, fishing, sunbathing, a nature center, lighthouse, championship golf course, and acclaimed Northern Sky Theater.

Within walking distance of The Java Hut there are several excellent restaurants in all price ranges from Fine Dining to a Hot Dog Stand and numerous exquisite shops and galleries catering to all tastes.

Just one block down is a grocery store.

So much to do and you don't need a car…


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We are entrepreneurs Eric and Carina. We did not grown up in Door County. Eric is from Minneapolis, MN and Carina from Green Bay, WI area. Carina moved to door county in 1998 to help her parents run a hotel and convinced Eric to come to Door County with his culinary talents to begin a small sandwich and coffee shop in 2001 on a back road in Fish Creek. We moved location in 2005 down to the Main Street. Then in early 2012 purchased our first property and moved the Cafe again and for the final time. The new property featured a white house directly across from the popular Fish Creek town beach with views of Peninsula State Park across the harbor, as well as a 750 square foot rental cottage directly behind the house. As soon aw we took ownership we began updating the cottage to our standards so we could offer it as yet another service to our customers and travelers.

Why the Owner Chose Fish Creek, WI, USA:
Eric and I chose to reside in Door County because we wanted a simpler life. Since we realize our cafe is well established it was time to put down roots and own not lease. Door County is visually stunning and serene and simply magical in the summertime. The winters are quiet and beautiful, great for skiing, snowshoeing, horseback riding and snowmobiling, as well as getting to know the locals.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Unique to The Java Hut cottage rental is its ideal location with proximity to downtown and the beach, its updated nature, its size and amenities, as well as the discounts guests enjoy on dining and drinks at Blue Horse Beach Cafe. And...WE ALLOW DOGS!
