A visit to Door County provides an excellent escape from the stress and hustle of a busy life. Why not stay somewhere that has the comforts of home and the space you need to truly enjoy your vacation? Sleepy Hollow Cottage, in the Village of Egg Harbor, Door County, is a quaint, comfortable two story Cape Cod nestled on more than an acre of wooded land with lovely perennials. Located on a cul-de-sac, the cottage is in a quiet location, yet it is a short walk to Egg Harbor's public sand beach or to town for lunch, coffee, or shopping. Nature abounds at the cottage, so don't be surprised to see a deer or two, along with turkey, geese and numerous other wildlife.
There is a beautiful park in Egg Harbor, a comfortable 10 minute walk, that is perfect for picnics and watching the sun set over the bay. A picnic basket and cooler are available at the cottage for your use. From the cottage, you can easily commute to all of Door County's charming villages and fun activities, including golfing, hiking, shopping, biking, boating, and cross country skiing. The cottage is 6 miles from Fish Creek, where the popular Peninsula State Park awaits your exploration. Further north, near Ellison Bay, is the beautiful Newport State Park with 2,373 acres and 11 miles of Lake Michigan shoreline.
Sleepy Hollow Cottage offers 3 comfortable bedrooms (one king, one queen and one with two twin beds) and 2 full baths. You will find linens and towels ready for your use. The kitchen is well equipped and you need only visit the Main Street Market Grocery (10 minute walk or 3 minute drive) to stock up on provisions for your stay. A wood fireplace and plenty of wood is available to warm your evenings. Evenings can also be spent outside around the fire pit. The screened porch is perfect for relaxing or dining alfresco. The cedar room is a great place for curling up to read a book or to play a game at the pub table. In addition to the usual appliances, the kitchen also has a dishwasher and a microwave oven. A washer/dryer is available for your laundry needs. Hair dryers are provided in both bathrooms.
The cottage is equipped with a radio/CD stereo, a DVD player with TV, free streaming Netflix, and a selection of movies. Games/and puzzles are also available for your entertainment. It also has air conditioning and Wi-Fi for your comfort and convenience.

About the owner: We're a family of three from Evanston, Illinois. I work for Northwestern University and my husband works for United Airlines. Our son is in college now at the University of Illinois but he loves spending quiet weekends with us at Sleepy Hollow Cottage. We use the house mostly in the off-season when all the crowds have left Door County. We hike, eat pizza at Wild Tomato, watch movies, go bowling, play Settlers of Cataan, Scrabble, and cards, sleep late, make cookies, and read, read, read. We hope you enjoy Sleepy Hollow Cottage as much as we do.
Why the Owner Chose Egg Harbor, WI, USA:
In my childhood I spent many happy hours at my grandfather's simple country cottage in a small town in the Laurentian Mountains, near Montreal. My grandmother cooked dinners that she served on the screened porch and from the backyard all the children could disappear into the woods, where we would pick blueberries and play make believe. There was a nearby lake where we would go swimming and eat french fries sprinkled with vinegar and ice cream cones. To me it was a magical place, and I always looked forward to returning. When I grew up and was finally able to afford a country house of my own, I knew I wanted to buy property in Door County. I love how it is surrounded by water and how easy it is to get on my bike and just ride for hours and hours. I think when I was looking for my house, I unconsciously searched for something reminiscent of my grandfather's place---simple, charming, private, and nestled in the woods. I found all that I was looking for and more with Sleepy Hollow Cottage. I fell in love with it immediately because of the screened porch and the wood-burning fireplace (both musts for me) and when I looked out the windows and saw nothing but trees, I knew it was the house for me.
