Owner info

Year Purchased: 1968

About the owner: We bought our Door County property many years ago. The view and perfect approach to the water sold us on the location. We've been residing at our house and renting the adjacent guest house ever since, enjoying every minute.

Why the Owner Chose Sturgeon Bay, WI, USA:
The location is ideal--on the Bay shore just 1 1/2 miles north of Little Harbor exactly halfway between Sturgeon Bay and Egg Harbor on County trunk B...also called Bay Shore Drive. Entertainment and Shopping is 3 to 8 miles away in any direction.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Panorama guest house deck is everyone's favorite spot. The comfortable deck furniture is a great place to observe the shoreline's beautiful scenery and sunsets. The deck is built overlooking the water, so a person can have a sweeping view up and down the Bay. Look across the water to both Michigan and Wisconsin shores. The guest house is always comfortable...air conditioned for summer's hot days, centrally heated for Spring and Fall. Cards, checkers, puzzles, dominoes etc. are there for rainy days. Current novels, Andy Rash's children's books and Door County history books are on the bookshelf. Maps,tourist literature, DVD's and CD's are in the living room. There are also a few outdoor games for the spacious lawn outside.
