About the Property
Living room/bedroom, kitchen/dining area, full bath, and quiet side deck.
The accommodations include a comfortable air-conditioned living room/bedroom combination, a fully equipped kitchen/dining area, and a full bath. An adjacent side deck with table and chairs awaits your plans for dining outdoors. The kitchen is fully equipped with dishes, silverware, utensils, pots and pans, an apartment-size refrigerator, coffeemaker, electric stove, and microwave. The cottage is furnished with a queen bed, pillows, blankets, bed linens, and even an alarm clock. A fold-out cot is available for a young child upon request. A color TV with satellite and DVD player awaits your enjoyment. Bring along your favorite DVD or check out the few available at the cottage.
The cottage is located on the north side of Ephraim at the corner of Hwy 42 and South Coral Hill Road. This quiet location is within walking and biking distance from the restaurants, shops and waterfront in Ephraim (however, children are advised to be accompanied on busy Hwy 42 by an adult). The cottage is also just minutes from Sister Bay.
You must visit this unbelievable cottage, perfect for honeymooners and couples preferring a quiet setting for the 3 Rs: relaxation, reading, reconnecting. Perhaps you will allow time to experience the state parks, especially nearby Peninsula State Park and Golf Course, the nature trails, bike and boat rentals, the notable outdoor movie theater just south of Ephraim, and Door County outdoor fish boils, especially the one in Ephraim at the Old Post Office restaurant. There are excellent theater presentations, a plethora of concerts, and an array of gift, art and antique shops throughout the county.
A grill is available to make a juicy steak or burger, giving you a choice between dining in or eating out, but don't miss Wilson's Ice Cream Shop in Ephraim for that tasty treat while cooling off on a hot summer day.
A double-sized hammock calls you come outside under the big tree for a relaxing time in the backyard.
Please note that check in is after 4:00 p.m. and check out is by 10:00 a.m. Contact owner Fran Richter if you need special consideration on these posted times.

Within walking distance to Ephraim, but you need to walk along Hwy 42 and traffic can be heavy on the highway. An adult certainly needs to accompany young children walking or biking into town,...moreless

Tuckaway Cottage is just minutes from Wisconsin's well-known Peninsula State Park where one can bike, picnic, swim, camp, enjoy outdoor activities and attend a theater in the park.
Ephraim is a favorite subject for artists painting landscapes, waterscapes, boats, and fantastic sunsets seen from Anderson Dock. The fall color is spectacular as one views the State Park across the water. Wilson's Ice Cream Shop is a must for your taste buds.
Year Purchased: 1994
About: I have lived in Wisconsin all of my life. Growing up on a farm in the Rib Mountain area, I left country life after high school to attend St. Norbert College, met my 1st husband there, and settled in the Green Bay area for over 20 years. We moved to Ephraim in 1994 and I fell in love with Door County, its people, and the beauty of its landscape. After he died, I remained in the area, remarried, and now live in Jacksonport with my 2nd husband, who has helped me ready my Ephraim cottage to be a wonderful vacation rental. Without him, I would never have been able to offer my cottage to vacationers.
Why Ephraim, WI, USA:
This little cottage is what sold us on the Door County property. My first husband and I fell in love with the uniqueness of the building and wanted to share it with visitors to the area. The cottage has been through two major decorating changes since 1994, the latest one by the handiwork of my second and present husband. We feel the cottage has become even more welcoming and comfortable. Come enjoy this cozy place and experience Door County from our very central point.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Quiet site, conveniently located just off Highway 42, close to both Ephraim and Sister Bay, with shopping, restaurants, water views, and local attractions within minutes of the cottage.
