About Carina Helm
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, along with Carina's husband Michael, purchased our first property and moved the Cafe again and for the final time. The property features 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 as 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.
Carina Helm purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why Carina Helm chose Fish Creek
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.
What makes this Cottage unique
Unique to The Java Hut cottage is its ideal location with proximity to downtown and the beach while being on a quiet low traffic street. Its a good sized comfortable layout with modern updates and most everything a person needs to enjoy their stay without having to bring so much with them. We allow dogs! Also, guests enjoy discounts at Blue Horse Beach Cafe, a very popular and well established coffee and brunch cafe next door.

My husband and I love Door County and decided to go for a long weekend in the off-season. The Java Hut was adorable and in a perfect location in Fish Creek. We will come here again.
Thank you so much! We look forward to having you again sometime.

Nice, clean, cozy and convenient
Convenient and cozy in the heart of Fish Creek
We love staying in Fish Creek for our annual post Christmas getaway. This little cottage was perfect — walking distance to shops and restaurants, clean and cozy. Would be great to take advantage of the porch and fire pit in summertime. Highly recommend.
We are thrilled you chose The Java Hut for your annual Winter Door County visit. Thank you for your kind words about our cottage and we hope to have you back again soon!
This cottage is in an excellent walk to everywhere location, clean and updated, second full bath is a definite plus. Everything we needed for a fun, relaxing stay!
So happy to have you at our cottage! Thank you for staying and glad you had a good time.
Great location and cottage
We like to have getaways in Door County and also be with our beagle. The Java Hut allows us to do both. We are steps away from food/coffee at the Blue Horse, and a short walk to Fish Creek Park and Peninsula State Park. Perfect!
Hello! And thank you for taking the time to review our cottage. We hope to have you and your beagle back again soon!!
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…
