Have your morning coffee on the deck or comfortably nestled in the sky-lighted, multi-windowed sunroom; either space gives you a lovely view of the cedar and birch woods. Take a 3-minute walk to Lake Michigan, sit on the boat dock, and watch the sunset. In the summer launch your boat, canoe, or kayak from multiple locations or learn this is the perfect place to set out for miles on your bike; in the winter put your snowshoes on and find the wooded trail close to the house for some quiet winter exercise.

This property is located on a quiet, wooded dead-end lane on the Lake side of the Peninsula. It is only an 8-minute drive to Sister Bay with numerous shops, restaurants, and groceries. Either side of the Peninsula puts you in a good location for hiking, fishing, biking, Nordic skiing, or boating, but at the end of your daily adventures you will get to return "home" to simply relax, have good conversations, and watch the birds (and a few pesky squirrels) in the serenity and privacy of this comfortable little house. One of our guests said, the house on line looks like a cabin but in actuality it is a well-built home.
Northern Door County has something special in every season but Summer and Fall are definitely the busiest. The state parks: Peninsula State Park (Fish Creek on the Bay side) and Newport State Park (Ellison Bay on the Lake side) offer miles of hiking, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobile trails with shoreline access galore--- Door County has more shoreline than any county in Wisconsin!
The Arts in Door County---There is a bounty of art related activity in Door from indoor/outdoor theater, music, and even Shakespeare---to fabulous art galleries, pottery shops, and art schools. We even have a drive-in theater! You can go home with an original art piece to remember your trip to Door and as a daily reminder to return for another adventure.
