About the Property

3 bedrooms each with ensuite bath with spectacular eastern peninsula views

Sand Bay Shore Villa is well suited for a large family, three or four couples vacationing together, or as a retreat for a writing/hobby/book group. With a gourmet kitchen, large outdoor gas grill, patios, screen porch, 2 fieldstone fireplaces, outdoor firepit and more there are plenty of cozy places to enjoy a home cooked meal, sip a glass of wine, or toast marshmallows. You might choose to refresh with an early morning run down the cedar lined lane and an invigorating outdoor shower overlooking the lake, or just peacefully relax in the comfy leather lounge chairs and watch the sunrise. The best of both worlds awaits you in this peaceful retreat that is only three miles from the hustle/bustle of the unique shops, galleries, and restaurants of Door County, Wisconsin. Golfing, charter fishing, bike friendly roads, and an abundance of outdoor activities are set in this Niagara Escarpment area with significant geological features. Lifelong learners might sign up for Clearing.org classes, Peninsula Art School classes, Savory Spoon cooking classes, or nature classes at Newport or Peninsula Parks. Wifi and cable TV included.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1987

About the owner: The Sand Bay Lane home has been owned by the Olson family since 1987 and is the site of many great family memories of children growing up, daughter and son-in-law’s wedding, special family and friend gatherings. Ginny Olson, your host, welcomes you to experience the unique peace and elegance that she has enjoyed in this lovely place for many years.

Why the Owner Chose Sister Bay, WI, USA:
Vacationing in beautiful Door County since 1969 made owning a 2-acre piece of this paradise a longtime dream come true. 'Heaven feels a little closer in home beside the water.'

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Northern Lights, the moonrise, a campfire with the sounds of the lake at night or the glory of the sunrise, deer at the water's edge, or taking a cool swim in the heat of a summer day are unique benefits to this peaceful home.
