Beth Collins purchased this house in 2013

Why Beth Collins chose Fish Creek

Door County is a place that have loved and traveled to from far distances for many years. Although we have traveled all over the country and the world, Door County is such a unique and beautiful place that offers so much variety for our family.

What makes this house unique

We love the feel of this home. It is warm, cozy and comfortable. The large windows enable you to feel like you are close to nature. We love the location, with proximity to Fish Creek, Peninsula and Ephraim, as well as being in the center of the peninsula. We love that we can walk to Fish Creek, yet be in a private, tucked-away place with beautiful surroundings. We love that it is a safe place for our kids to play.

Autumn in Fish Creek

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful time to enjoy the sites, sounds and Fall colors of Fish Creek in beautiful Door County, WI. Little Spring Cottage was a pure delight.

Our girls weekend was a long awaited retreat. The home was very clean and had a inviting & Cozy living room . The kitchen was large and it was nice that we could all sit down and eat together in the dining room. The bedrooms were comfortable had enough room for all of us.

We would recommend this great place to everyone and hope to come back and visit again.

Beautiful and relaxing family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second annual Little Spring Cottage vacation. It has always been a beautiful and relaxing family vacation. The location is ideal within walking/biking distance to Peninsula State Park and downtown Fish Creek. The owners are super friendly and easy to work with too. We look forward to next year already!

Great family time. Our family was able to come together to relax and renew. Just what we needed!

  • 4 of 5

With 8 adults and 3 little ones, 6, 3 and 2, this home was a perfect fit. Lots of outdoor games, great conversations and enough food for the neighborhood. Liked the quiet location but still within walking distance of Fish Creek. Excellent central location on the Peninsula. After 2 years of serious health issues in our family, it was time to celebrate and look forward. Thanks for helping us succeed in accomplishing the best medicine of all,...mixing love with a lot of laughter.

3rd summer in a row!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is a gem in fish creek- best location in all of Door County- ride your bike to town or jump in car for 5-10 minute car ride into Egg Harbor, Eprhaim and Sister Bay. We had 4 adults and 3 young children stay for the week, plenty of room for everyone in and outside the home. Fully operating kitchen with all the bells and whistles you need- we cooked more than 50% of our meals at the house. The fire pit was used almost every night too!

Owners are great to work with and very responsive- we've been calling this 'our vacation house' 3 years running- hope to be back in 2018!
