Pet Friendly Private Cottage on 10 Acre Farm in Fish Creek

For those who love Door County and want to get away from the crowds --our nicely furnished and very private cottage is just off Hwy 42 in between the towns of Egg Harbor and Fish Creek. The cottage is located on the 10 acre Applewood Farm estate which is beautiful, private and serene. Feel free to bring your small family, including your pet(if well behaved) and enjoy the walking paths around the property. You will have the ultimate in privacy, relaxation and romance as you experience the natural beauty of the area. The cottage has nice furnishings including a NEW Heavenly Bed made famous at Westin Hotels. The cottage also has a bonfire pit, a front and side porch -- picnic table and lots of Adirondack chairs to enjoy the outdoors. Read a book on the porch, listen for the hummingbirds or search for shooting stars at night!

We have furnished and decorated the cottage with care so that you can enjoy a nice home away from home. We want you to love your stay! The cottage is perfect for couples, small families and/or families who want to bring their pets on vacation. The cottage is less than two miles from the public beach in Egg Harbor and four miles from Penninsula State Park in Fish Creek. Enjoy cherry picking across the street at Hyline orchards in July and apple picking from our trees right out the front door in October! Or, play a round of golf right down the street at The Orchards Golf Club!

About Sharon Elliott

Hello my name is Sharon and I'm the owner of The Applewood Farm. I fell in love with the farm property while passing by it one summer day 12 years ago. The flowers are amazing and there are hummingbirds everywhere. I take a lot of pride in keeping the cottage updated and the grounds manicured and pretty for guests. I work locally at a restaurant in Door County during the season so I'm nearby if needed. I love Door County and look forward to making this your home away from home for many years to come.

Sharon Elliott purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Sharon Elliott chose Egg Harbor

It's a beautiful and peaceful place on the border of Egg Harbor and Fish Creek that is central to everything in Door County yet very private. The cottage was moved from Kangaroo Lake 20 years ago. It's quaint, clean and perfectly imperfect.

What makes this cottage unique

There is just a feeling of peace and tranquility on the farm. The main house (mine) is across the property. There is also a barn, several outbuildings and trails for exploring. There are chairs on the porch and four more around the outside fire pit which allows guests to relax and enjoy the outdoors.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our honeymoon was quiet, cozy and romantic…just what we were hoping for. Looking forward to returning for our anniversary. Thanks for everything!

Had a great stay with our dogs on Thanksgiving long weekend.Loved staying here. Everything you needed plus more! Very private and secluded area but still close to everything. The kitchen was well-stocked with utensils and plates-we were able to cook many meals comfortably. House was clean overall a great value.Would definitely stay here again if we come back.

It is a lovely little cottage with some wonderful paths to walk with a dog. It has everything you need to enjoy yourself. I couldn't figure out how to turn on the light in the living room but other than that, everything was good. Had a great time in Door County, can always find something to do up there.

Great place, pet friendly and great location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently stayed here from 10/20 - 10/23. It was the perfect place if you have pets. There are walking trails for you to explore on the property. We did not have a chance to meet with Sharon personally, but we were able to contact her very easily. Sharon has done a great job with providing all the little things in the cottage so that you can feel at home. Sharon is also quick to assist with tourism suggestions. The farm looked beautiful with all the Fall colors. Although my wife and I want to and make a trip up there earlier in the Summer. You cannot beat the location either, there is so much to see and you can't help but feel that it's a short drive to everything in Door County. We definitely plan to be back. I am

Wonderful get-a-way!

  • 5 of 5

We spent four nights in this lovely cottage in late September. We were looking for a place we could take our dog - and this cottage not only accepted dogs, but welcomed them! You know your pet is considered a part of your family where there is a canister of dog treats on the counter!

The cottage was a perfect size for the two of us! The kitchen was fully equipped with anything we needed to cook meals in. Very nice pots and pans, a nice set of dishes, anything we needed. We used the grill several nights as well.

The living room was very comfortable, had a nice TV with cable, and wireless internet for when we had to check online for anything. The dining room had plenty of space and the owner even provided games, puzzles, and books - plenty to keep you busy on the occasional rainy day.

The bedroom had a lovely bed and comfortable bedding. One of the things that is so important when you are on vacation is getting a good nights sleep. No problem here!

We enjoyed sitting on the deck in the Adirondack chairs to read and enjoy the views and flowers. We also used the fire pit a couple nights and loved watching the stars away from the lights of the city.

There are also mowed trails around the property that we utilized - nice walks through the woods and around the property with our dog. Didn't see any wildlife but did partake of some of the apples from the trees growing on the property.

All in all it was a wonderful place to stay, close to everything we wanted to see and do, and we plan to go back again. Sharon does everything she can to make it an enjoyable and relaxing place to stay.

I would highly recomend.

  • 4 of 5

Cute cottage. I would highly recommend. My dog and I stayed here for a long weekend and it was great! Best sleep away from home that I have ever had. The place is very comfortable. The hosts Sharon and Jackson (her dog) was very nice, pleasant and friendly. Sharon seems to have thought of everything that you would need. It was nice to have nice guality towels, shampoo, and dog treats, toys, leash and bowls among other things such as a sound machine to help you sleep if you need it. The cottage is outfitted nicely for an enjoyable time away from home. The place is located on very nice grounds with paths available for a nice stroll. I would highly recommend staying here. I look forward to staying here again.

Even Better Than We Expected!!!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't believe our eyes when we pulled into the drive ~ an absolutely adorable cottage in a quiet, private setting surrounded by trees and a large field full of wildlife. The inside was just as much of a pleasant surprise, clean and cozy and furnished with just enough of a country touch to make for a welcoming stay. Sharon was the perfect host as well, with her sidekick Jackson following to greet the four-legged guests (even if one of those guests was quite loud and rude). That was our third stay in beautiful Door County within a year, but it was far and away our favorite. Our goal is to make our next stay at Applewood Cottage as soon as possible!
