Inspired by the original 1930's cabin built on 220 feet of shoreline, we added 5000 sq ft of custom built live edge architectural interior living space to create a one of a kind home. Take your pick, with waterfront views in almost every room in the house you can sink into one of two living rooms w/ fireplaces, a cozy sunroom, designer kitchen, dining room or 5 bedrooms. Enjoy natural living at it's best on our west facing deck w/ whirlpool tub, the flagstone patio, pier, or white rock beach
This is the first summer in decades we have offered our very private home as a rental in the summer and fall. It has been our family refuge for many summers and this is reflected in it's personal style. The two artisan builders along with the imaginative owners designed and crafted an interior inspired by the gentle trillium woods, white smooth rocks and fresh waters of northern door. They worked collaboratively to bring in all these all elements of nature to create a grand scale cozy cabin feel.
All the interior and exterior furnishings, accents and accessories, handmade textiles, quilts, rugs, ceramics, and artwork have been intentionally selected to encourage a down to earth mood of deep fun and relaxation, no pretense here just sink in comfort. There are lots of cozy spacious furnishings, lamps and delightful extras that invite long quiet sits with a book, luxurious open air naps, and great nooks to collect your thoughts and write. In addition to these sumptuously inviting choices our place also offers an expansive festive climate for larger family and friends gatherings and celebrations. With two spacious living rooms and two large dining tables along with several outdoor patio tables and chairs there is plenty of room to spread out and play. There is a large gravel parking lot for several cars. Any larger planned event ( graduation party, weddings, group gatherings etc..)needs to be pre-approved and require additional planning, possibly additional fees and conversations).
Our kitchen has a large walk in pantry where we leave many staples for your use, a spacious french door fridge, classic deep farm sink, dishwasher and all the stoneware and glassware you will need for a great dinner party. There is a gas dacor cooktop and roomy designer cement island countertop, many spices, gadgets and utensils you will need to cook up a storm . There is a west facing bank of windows that extends forty feet across the west side of the house welcoming in the afternoon sun and the evening sunsets.
The second story is a charmed long corridor connecting by four spacious bedrooms, all appointed with quality furnishings, waterfront views and very comfortable beds with quality linens. Each room has been named, they are Grey Goose, Wild Turkey, Big Fish and the Bunk room is called Chipmunk Lodge which has two bunk bed sets with fulls on the bottom and singles on top so this rooms can sleep six. At the end of each side of the corridor you will find a bathroom.
On the first floor off one of the living rooms is the original open cabin room which has been converted into a large bedroom called Southern Comfort. We are blocking this bedroom off this season as the owners closet but have moved one of the full bedroom to a nook in the very large family room.
The king master bedroom and bathroom is on the first floor and has a birch branch king bed frame facing the water and also has a private bathroom with glass shower.
Guests are welcome to walk the roads and public trails in nearby Door Bluff County Park. This is one of the quietest, most private roads in northern door county. There are many seasonal friendly long time family home owners in the neighborhood who value the serenity, privacy and quiet of the natural area.
If you are interested in booking the house for a small family reunion, wedding or any other celebration there may be additional charges and we will require an independent contract separate from airbnb and independent security deposit.
