About Cindy Livingston or Emily Pitchford
I was born and raised in Egg Harbor, Door County, Wisconsin. I attended grade school in Egg Harbor and Gibraltar H.S. in Fish Creek, and I am a UW - Madison graduate. Our family business is Alpine Resort and Golf Course in Egg Harbor. I have two sons and live in Sturgeon Bay. We have a golden retriever puppy that is very active and playful and he loves to swim.
Cindy Livingston or Emily Pitchford purchased this Cottage in 1962
Why Cindy Livingston or Emily Pitchford chose Egg Harbor
The Blue Jay house has been in our family from the beginning. It's close to Alpine Resort and Golf and close to all the great things Egg Harbor (and Door County) has to offer. It's only available for vacations in the spring, summer and fall. My family is very protective of this house and keep it very clean and well maintained.
What makes this Cottage unique
This house is the perfect little vacation cottage. It's located in an area of private summer homes with lots of trees and within walking distance to shops, restaurants and bars, the Egg Harbor Marina, galleries, free summer concerts and groceries in Egg Harbor. It's 1/2 mile to Alpine and Egg Harbor beaches. Located on Whitecliff Road, there's plenty of opportunity for walks with public access to the water every few hundred feet.

Location location location
The cottage is in a wonderful location where you can walk to all of the shops, restaurants, and harbor. This was by far the most important thing we looked for. I’m not very picky on where I stay as long as it is clean and comfortable. Cottage had large bathroom and comfortable bed, we didn’t really need much more. If you plan on using kitchen/tv and like modern appliances I would look elsewhere. If you want somewhere to sleep that’s near everything, this is the place for you.
I just wish there was WiFi so I could check some work emails in the morning!
The house was old, and everything in it was old.
The location was great for walking around town and going to the beach. You could walk or bicycle everywhere. The house itself smelled very musty when we first arrived. We couldn’t get the door to the deck to lock again, once we opened it. The microwave worked intermittently and the TV must have been about 20 years old. Actually everything in the house seemed really old, but with absolutely no charm. The $150.00 pet fee seemed excessive considering the condition of the house. The price was kind of high for the quality of the house.
Began with a small parking area and loose stones creating a treacherous incline to cabin. Patio door was so warped we had to tug it open with two hands. Patio has a street view and two white plastic chairs. Picture does not capture the musty odor throughout despite the Airwicks every few feet. Window unit air conditioner is very loud and not turned on upon our arrival despite the high 80s temp. outside. Cobwebs in corners and dirty coffee cups in cabinet. Dated appliances and outdated fuse box. We woke to no electricity and found no outlet to plug coffeemaker into that didn’t blow a fuse. Checked out after one night cutting our trip short. Don’t waste your money. Sorrily disappointed.
The one bedroom cottage located on Whitecliff Road in Egg Harbor provides a charming getaway off the highway yet close enough to walk to the shops, restaurants, galleries and marina. The cottage is surrounded by trees and limestone bluffside and has a patio view of trees, Whitecliff Road, buildings on the shoreline and the bay of Green Bay. The cottage has a fireplace, A/C, heat and all electrical and mechanical components inside and outside the cottage are consistently maintained by our experienced maintenance crew.
Older, but a quaint cottage
Enjoyed our stay. Service from the Ownership group was very pleasant and helpful.
Good location but......
I chose this cottage because it was close to Egg Harbor and to friends staying nearby. The location was perfect and Emily and the staff were responsive and friendly. However, the carpet in the living room has stains and the oven wasn’t clean. Both need a deep cleaning. The stove looked to be an older one than pictured.
