About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-14)

Located in beautiful Door County Wisconsin in the quaint village of Ellison Bay on the upper most part of the peninsula. This home is situated close to the water with views from the tower room WITH A WONDERFUL 12X15 foot deck overlooking the bay and picturesque Ellison Bay Bluffs. A great area for sailing, biking, hiking, shopping, galleries, theatre, star gazing, vegging out, and my personal favorite (check out the photo) salmon fishing.

The home is beautifully appointed with comfortable overstuffed furniture,hardwood floors, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, a Jacuzzi in the master bath, cathedral ceilings and much more. According to our past guests the best feature of the house is the huge screened-in porch off the kitchen.

New in 2016....If you would like to book a 3 hour boat tour ($500) contact the owner.

This is not a 'bare bones' rental unit. This is our family vacation home which we would like to share as time permits.

The rentals will be Sat-Sat and if you click on the calendar you will be able to tell at a glance what dates are still available.

PLEASE NOTE...ADDITIONAL dates may be available UPON REQUEST. Please don’t hesitate to ask. At this point the home is able to sleep 14 people.

-One King

-Two Queens

-One single

-Double / and one twin bunk

-Two Sleeper sofas

The master bedroom with king bed and private bath are on the first floor. Two of the upstairs bedrooms are furnished with queen beds and the 3rd upstairs bedroom is ready to sleep 6 with a double/single bunk bed a single bed and a sleeper sofa. Just outside this bedroom is the loft which overlooks the great room and fireplace and also is equipped with a new sleeper-sofa.

The loft is an ideal space for the kids to go to play games etc. A spiral staircase will take you from the loft to the tower room....which is sure to become the kid's favorite place to hang out.......or Mom and Dad's favorite place to watch the sunsets over the gorgeous Ellison Bay waters. We added a large deck off the tower room so that you may be outside while enjoying the view over the water.

The location of the home ideal. Within walking distance to the Marina, the Pioneer Store (our local grocery), galleries , shops, and restaurants. It is also a short walk to the Ellison Bay Beach with it's tennis courts, beach and playground.

Due to the covenants of the condo association we are not able to welcome pets. We are also a non-smoking property.

I hope you will take the time to look into this property and the great Northern Wisconsin vacationland that encompasses this area. You will fall in love with it.

About The Owner

My name is Lyn and I have been vacationing in Ellison Bay since I was 2 months old! God did some of his best work up here and once you try it you will be hooked. Speaking of hooks...the photo tells the story. We have some of the best salmon fishing in the world and some of the best charter captains as well!

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

Why The Owner chose Ellison Bay

Proximity to the village was a major "must have" for me..As a traveler myself I hate having to hop in the car every time I need something from the grocery...or I want to go out to breakfast...or head to the marina.

I love screened-in porches so I added a HUGE screened-in porch and a 3rd floor with a big deck to allow for a water view and presto!! I was in paradise. We are walking distance to our favorite restaurant and the grocery. There is a marina about a block away and also lots of cute shops and other restaurants within walking distance.

What makes this house unique

The rear porch overlooks a large yard with beautiful flowers and enough room for badmitton or other yard games. The most important thing to know though is that this is NOT a 'bare bones' rental property. This is my home and equipped with all the ammenities for anything you might need. We also have 2 pack and plays...2 bumper guards for little one's name it. I can also get you 'hooked up' with the best fishing guides in Door County. I m also available for babysitting should the need arise.

Great place for large group

  • 5 of 5

Once again, 12 of us (6 adults & 6 children) spent a wonderful week at Lyn's spectacular home. It was great again to renew our breakfast feasts at the Viking and Summer Kitchen. Once again, it was great to create new memories of Door County. Lyn, we took your advice and went to dinner at Pasta Vino. They have moved once again to Sister Bay by the Piggly Wiggly. It was everyone's favorite, kids and adults. If it had not been our last night, we would have gone back several times. Don't miss it. Seating for 12 is not always easy, but we found most restaurants were very accommodating. Thank you Lyn for another wonderful week in your spectacular home.

Here's till next time,

Peter Nelson and family

Great home, comfortable, and a huge screen porch.

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Lyn's home June 18-2, 2016. We were a group of 6 adults and 4 children and we all were very comfortable. Beds were comfortable and the house well stocked. But our favorite room was the big screen porch where we spent most of our time, either eating or playing cards. Lyn even went out and bought a new grill for us when she found out the old one wasn't working and knew we were big grillers. I thought that was very thoughtful and showed how much she cares that her visitors have everything they need. We especially liked the quiet location after a busy day exploring Door County. I highly recommend Lyn's place to anyone and would definitely return. Thank you, Lyn, for sharing your home with our family, your attentiveness to our needs, your kindness, and your warm friendly smile when we met each other.

Owner's Response: Dear Randy and family, Thank you so much for the very lovely review. I have to say you were among the best guests I have hosted. Your understanding and kindness regarding the grill was so amazing. I was more than happy to replace it immediately and particularly because it was Father's Day weekend and I knew you guys were enthusiastic grillers. You left at my home in wonderful condition and took great care of it while you were here. Thank you so very much for that and for choosing my home for your family vacation. I hope I will see you again in the future.

The Perfect House!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved spending time in Lyn's home! We loved how there were so many places to relax, including the yard, enclosed porch and rooftop deck. The house was clean, cozy and inviting, and it was also stocked with everything we could have needed. It was also nice having a couple restaurants, a cider brewery and some other places within walking distance. We would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: It was such fun for me to get to know your family and to see the wonderful art that you are produce. It would be fun to have had more time to do a little painting together. Maybe next time? Thank you again so very much for selecting my home for your stay.

My family and I just returned home, after spending this past week in Lyn's gorgeous house. The house itself is immaculate--tons of space--including a "crow's nest" deck with views of the lake, a wonderful (huge) screened in back porch, and a large backyard with a hammock and gardens. We were blown away by how comfortable this house felt and how many places there were to relax, read, play games, etc. We had not stayed in Ellison Bay before and found that we were just steps away from cute shops, fabulous restaurants (dinner at the Wickman House is a must and the fish boil at The Viking was delicious) and the beach. Lyn could not have been nicer and even sent us away with a cooler full of fresh salmon fillets. We could not have asked for a better vacation and staying at Lyn's house was pure heaven.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the kind words. It was a lot of fun for me to to have you in my home. Next year we will have to be sure that you make time to go out fishing and I will be more than happy to help make that happen. I appreciated the comments about the location of the house as far as shopping and restaurants. I love being able to walk to those things and not have to depend on a car. Please come back soon you will always be welcome.

This beautiful home had everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

This well designed house gave our party of 5 more than enough space to relax and have privacy whenever we wanted it. The owner thought of everything and there was nothing lacking that we might need. She was very gracious and came to greet us and make sure we were comfortable. The house was immaculate and within walking distance of restaurants, stores and galleries. It was hard to leave after a relaxing week in this beautiful home!

Owner's Response: I was really sorry to see your family leave. I hope you will consider returning next year and perhaps we can find some time to do some artwork together. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help you get representation up here. Next year we will just have to make time to get you out on the water and catch some big fat salmon for yourselves.
