About Leif Lautenbach

I have been coming to Door County since I was born - and that is 59 seasons ago. I absolutely love it up here - anytime of the year. I spend almost every available weekend during the season and late into the fall.

Leif Lautenbach purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Leif Lautenbach chose Door County

I decided to purchase this little getaway cabin in Door County as I had always wanted to own property - so I could call myself a "resident" instead of a "visitor". I plan on using it myself in a few years as I am making the early plans for semi-retirement - but in the meantime - I thought I would share it with others that I know will enjoy it as much as I do!

What makes this cottage unique

The thing I like the best about this is the location and the space it offers - larger than the average cottage and smaller and more affordable than the full-sized home. It's a great place to be located in Door - and a great place to hang out with family and friends, or enjoy some solitude on your own. Being so close to all of the villages and all of the attractions - it is a great place to stay. I know you will enjoy it as much as I do!!

Affordable Option in Door County

  • 4 of 5

Basically a mobile home with a screened in porch, deck with pub table & grill, and a fire pit complete with chairs and swing.

Really nice to have the kitchen and outdoor amenities which give you more privacy than you'd find in a hotel or inn.

It took a while to figure out how everything works as you would expect, but the resident information folder and appliance side labels make the job must faster.

Wifi was great and appreciated as was Direct TV. TV is odd. Only the same channel is available to the 3 tv sets.

There were several fans to create a breeze in any of the occupied areas.

I only had a couple of issues.

First, the musty smell that greets you as you enter, but they did have air fresheners in an attempt to cover this.

Secondly, the second bedroom now has a set of bunk beds in it. The bottom one is a full size bed and the top is a single bed. Couple that with this being a small bedroom to begin with and that the opposing wall has full length closets along it and you find you have an isle of 18 inches between the bed and the closets. That's a pretty tight squeeze. One person at at a time in a room designed to sleep 3 people.

It was too claustrophobic for me even though I've lived in the small bedroom of a trailer. I ended up on the floor in the living room.

Lastly, the heating and AC. There's no central heat or AC. Both are supplied with small upright standing units. The AC appears to have less cooling capacity than a window unit. When we arrived the trailer was at 84 degrees. By bedtime the temp was still at 81 degrees so fans were needed to make the night bearable.

Just two days later they were forecasting an overnight low of 60 degrees so we set the small, portable heater on 70 degrees and went to bed. Woke up to 60 degree temps in the trailer. It appears the small electrical heater didn't keep up with the trailer. Fortunately, we could use the four burners of the propane stove and the resident oscillating fan as a furnace to warm the living areas.

Parking seems limited. You have a shared driveway so only one spot unless you park behind each other.

Your parking spot is right in front of the garage in which the owner stores his boat. He requests you keep this open on the weekends for his access. Don't know where you'd park then. I guess if you're home, you have to move your car.

When you look at the cost and amenities for this property, I was happy with everything except the crowded bedroom.

Cozy & Great Value

  • 5 of 5

We’ve stayed there a number of times and have been pleased every time.

Conveniently located in the heart of Door County, close enough to destinations and attractions, yet secluded enough to enjoy some R & R. Very close to Peninsula State Park.

Cottage is clean & well maintained and has local ownership & management for quick resolution if any issues arise. Internet is a big bonus!

Will stay again.

Enjoyed the place!!

  • 4 of 5

My girlfriend and I very much enjoyed our stay at the Leyton’s Landing cottage! The location in Fish Creek is perfect if you want to be close to a little bit of everything you’d want to do in Door County. The place was very affordable considering its great accommodations including the screened in patio, personal grill, fast internet, satellite tv, and just all around cozy environment for a perfect getaway! The location was also easy to find and includes a well maintained landscape with easy parking access. Overall, I would definitely recommend a stay here, whether it be for family, friends, or couples…we will most certainly be coming back!”

Love this Place!!

  • 4 of 5

Was at the cottage for a stay and it was so nice and cozy. And the location is great!! 2 miles to both Fish Creek and Ephriam, 4 miles or so to Baileys Harbor. You can walk down to the classic Greenwood Supper Club, it's just 200 yards away on the corner of A & F. The screen porch is great - had a day of rain and was still able to sit out there staying dry and have cocktails and catch some sports on the satellite TV. The value - meaning bang for the buck is terrific! You can’t find a property priced this reasonably!. Well stocked and supplied for a cottage - Gas grill - microwave - everything you need in the kitchen was there. I would suggest this to all my friends for a weeklong or a weekend getaway!!
