About Walter Nawrot

My wife and I are excited to share our property in Sister Bay with you! We live only a short couple hours away, and over the last year have fallen in love with the nice people, the amazing views, and all the things to do in Sister Bay! We have been making extensive updates to the property, and will continue to update the house. We welcome you to stay our little Sister Bay Getaway, and welcome your feedback! Enjoy!

Walter Nawrot purchased this cottage in 2016

Why Walter Nawrot chose Sister Bay

We were thrilled to find this perfect Sister Bay cottage - it has become our little getaway...Hence "The Sister Bay Getaway." We are amazed at how cozy the entire village of Sister Bay is - we are walk to the beach, watch a sunset, grab something different to eat everyday, check-out a telescope from the library and head to the best parks in the state. We hope you create lots of amazing memories while visiting Sister Bay!

What makes this cottage unique

Feel free to use the 2 bikes (1 women's., 1 men's). Please use the helmets provided. Just be careful and take care of the bikes.

We also have some toys to use at the beach, as well as some lawn chairs for you to use.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"My Family and I had a wonderful time. The house was perfect for our family of four and my 4 1/2 year old daughter loved sleeping on the top bunk. The house is a perfect size, not to big not to small but what really makes it is the location! Such an ideal location. Walking distance to the beach and restaurants and everything you could possibly need. We didn't even get to enjoy the nice backyard and small porch off one of the bedrooms. Walter was very accommodating and everything was great. We will for sure be back again!"

Incredible location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time in Sister Bay! The house is in an amazing location. We hiked, beached, and/or kayaked every day, and when we headed back to the house, it was just perfect not to have to drive anywhere for the rest of the night. Sister Bay has excellent restaurants and bars, including our favorite, Bier Zot, and everything is within easy walking distance. We also didn’t have to worry about finding a parking place ... Sister Bay can get pretty busy, and parking is sometimes at a premium. No problem at the Sister Bay Getaway!

The house itself is definitely older, and it shows, but honestly, it was pretty charming. The kitchen cabinets and living room carpeting have been there a while, and the house has a few creaks and pops, but I truly get the feeling that this house was well-loved by its family before it became a rental property.

The kitchen was very well stocked with utensils, plates, pots, pans, cups, etc. I did bring my good kitchen knife, a non-stick pan, and my favorite cutting board, but those are just my personal cooking preferences. One thing I couldn’t find, but maybe I missed it, was a cheese grater... I’ll probably just bring mine next time. We used the grill twice, and we ate outside on the deck because the weather was so nice. Each morning, we made coffee and took it to the marina to watch the water & the boats. The house had extra blankets & pillows, plus tons of towels and washcloths. One bedroom has a ceiling fan, and there is a box fan available for the second bedroom, if needed.

Walter was quick to respond to any questions, and we truly appreciated all his efforts. Without any hesitation, we recommend this house to everyone, and we can’t wait to return.

Another wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time at this house and we will be back next year. It is the perfect combination for us: the beach is so close we can go without any planning (it's a block away), the kitchen has all the basics, there are a whole bunch of restaurants within a couple of blocks, there is a fire pit, it's kid-friendly (sand toys, balls and games to play with), the Piggly Wiggly is in walking distance (though up the steep hill), there are some bike routes (though you do have to get up those hills to start), and most of the other activities we like to do are just 10-20 minute drives.

Thanks, Walter!

Great location, home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my 3 boys had a great vacation! Walter was very helpful and responsive. The location is fantastic, right across from the bay and close to everything! The house had everything we needed. The boys had their room and I had mine across the hall with enough space to hear laughing but quiet enough to sleep! :) We will be back!

Clean, convenient, close to everything.

  • 5 of 5

We have small kids so being located in downtown Sister Bay was important for this trip. The cottage was clean, well-kept overall, and full of amenities. The back deck and yard are also nice and shady. Convenient if you want to frequent the park, beach, downtown restaurants and shops, etc. of Sister Bay.

Great Location

Fabulous location for our stay in downtown Sister Bay. The views of the beach were lovely and the back deck offered some privacy to relax outside. The owner was very responsive and the house had everything we needed. We look forward to staying here again.

We really enjoyed our stay. The location was perfect, and we were able to walk to most places in Sister Bay. The house was clean and suitable for both of us. Thank you so much for your quick responses and hospitality, Walter!

Sightseeing, swimming, hiking, sailing, skiing – Sister Bay offers visitors the opportunity to fill vacation days with activity. Or, if you prefer, little activity at all. Unplug and quietly enjoy the sunshine, or play until you’re tuckered out. The choice is yours.

You can set off on a kayaking adventure to explore the bluffs and shipwrecks or sit beside the soothing waves of Lake Michigan and Green Bay while enjoying the view and reading a good book.

You will love this location - within view of an amazing lakefront park, beach and marina. Just off the main street full of restaurants, coffee shops, shopping, the famous Al Johnson's restaurant, and much much more!
