About the Property

2 Bedrooms, 1 full bath, 2 half baths, Sleeps 10

We purchased this home on beautiful Glidden Drive just about 3 years ago. Our family has ties to this area going back generations. Glidden Drive is a secluded scenic road 10 miles east of downtown Sturgeon Bay on Lake Michigan. Our home sits up on a small bluff overlooking rolling sand dunes with 180 feet of sandy beach shore front. It's nestled among pine and birch trees. The closest neighbors are 2 lots away in either direction. There are unobstructed expansive views of Lake Michigan making it feel as if you are the only house on the beach. The sunrises here are stunning and different each day. In the autumn and winter, you can even see the changing colors during sunset despite the house's east facing direction.

It is our vacation home as well. It's fully stocked with linens, towels, some toiletries, pots&pans, silverware, serving ware, baking ware, a crockpot, a french press, glasses, mugs, plates, bowls, spices, cutting boards, tea kettle, place mats, etc.

There are 2 queen bed bedrooms, 1 full bath, 2 half baths, and a bonus room with 2 sets of twin beds. The kitchen has a refrigerator, stove, oven, toaster oven, microwave and a coffee maker. Two dining areas will seat 14. There are three cozy couches in the 2 family rooms, one couch pulls out to a queen bed on the lower level. There is a washer and dryer. There are wood burning fireplaces in the upper and lower family rooms.

There are endless things to do in the area. Across the road, there are Nature Conservancy hiking trails. Just north about 10 miles is Cave Point County Park and Whitefish Dunes State Park. Just southwest about 10 miles is downtown Sturgeon Bay with shopping, a farmers market, restaurants, bars, YMCA, Door County Maritime Museum and much more. A boat launch is located 1.5 miles south on Glidden Drive.

Glidden Drive is a scenic road that hugs Lake Michigan Shoreline just northeast of Sturgeon Bay. Beautiful sunrises and miles of sandy beach await. Each season brings its own beauty; sledding on our dunes in the winter, hiking through cave point county park in spring, beach combing, fishing, kayaking in summer and taking a scenic drive for fall colors in autumn. There is always something to do.

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: My husband has been spending time in this area since he was a child, through him I also began to love Door County. In fall of 2013 we bought this home on a whim and look forward to family trips for years to come. I find it hard to go home after time spent on Glidden Drive, its so beautiful and peaceful.
