Overview

About the property

Beautiful log home on 5 acres just a short walk to Lake Michigan, Hoffman’s Up North is perfect for a getaway with family and friends. Privately situated, the home is close to picturesque Gill’s Rock, the ferry to Washington Island, wonderful hiking and biking at Newport State Park, public boat access at both Europe Lake and Gill’s Rock, and shopping and restaurants in Ellison Bay. And, when you want to venture into more populated areas, you are only 20 minutes from Sister Bay and all that it has to offer.

Built in 1993, the house is a true log home. The double height windows, wooden beams, games area, and grand stone fireplace of the Great Room make you feel as if you are staying in a fabulous lake country lodge. Three large bedrooms, two full baths, a spacious eat-in kitchen, and a sunroom welcome up to twelve comfortably.

Outside, the deck and fire pit are perfect for entertaining. There are also bicycles provided that are ready for a spin around the area. The parking area has plenty of space for cars and boats.

Hoffmans Up North gives you the peace and quiet you are looking for, combined with easy access to the water and hiking. And dining and shopping are never far away…

AWESOME FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5

the house was very clean and had everything we needed. The yard was big, the fire pit amazing and enough car space for everyone to park. The bikes in the shed were a great feature and we all rode bikes. Having the laundry room was a blessing as the kids went thru many towels from swimming at the lake. The distance to the lake was a block and very walkable. beautiful lake clear water. kids loved swimming and so did our dogs. Having this a dog friendly rental was a huge plus for us. We are coming back next year !

Memorial Weekend Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

What a spacious place in the woods and near the water. We are avid bird watchers, and this area has all the migrating birds! Photographed several first time warblers - what a blast! We really like fed the hummingbirds visiting the feeder all day long! If you want Door County but away from all the traffic and people, this is the place! Hoffmann's Up North is the place to stay!

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Hoffman's Up North was everything we had hoped it would be! The home and yard are exactly what the photos show. The house offered plenty of comfortable sleeping quarters and lots of room to relax and entertain. The yard, fire pit, and deck are beautiful. The location offers peace and quiet and solitude and is still within easy driving distance to shops, restaurants, wineries, etc.
