About David Groenfeldt
I live in Santa Fe, NM where I direct a small non-profit institute promoting ethical water policies. My father and grandfather were born in Door County, and I spent nearly every summer in this and adjacent cottages have a special place in my heart for this cottage, the beach, and Lake Michigan.
David Groenfeldt purchased this Cottage in 1987
Why David Groenfeldt chose Sturgeon Bay
My dad built this waterfront cottage in the 1930s on our family property and it was our summer place when I was growing up. We rented it out when we were not using it and many other families now regard the cottage as their family vacation spot too. My wife and I continue the practice of renting it out when we are not able to be there.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage is uniquely relaxing and grounding, the perfect place to unwind and rediscover yourself. The logs are cedar from the local forest and most of the furniture is handcrafted. There is a fully equipped kitchen, a dining room, a living room with fireplace, and a large sun porch overlooking the lake. Two bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms are downstairs and two bedrooms upstairs. There is also a back breezeway and a carport, also built from logs. The cottage is as beautiful on the outside as it is on the inside.

Rustic Cabin on the Beach
Great little rustic Cabin on the beach. This location is a great spot when visiting Door County. You are minutes away from Sturgeon Bay. If you are looking for a place away from all the crowds and a place to relax and unwind book this place. It was nice coming back to this place in the afternoon and sitting on the beach or taking a walk on the beach.
You do have neighbors on the sides of you, but we didn't hear or see them. We did see other neighbors when walking the beach, but all were super friendly.
This is a rustic cabin, it does have all the modern amenities. If you are looking for a cabin that was just built and has high end appliances this is not the place for you. This is a rustic cabin with old world charm. The second bathroom is small, but its not a outhouse.
The kitchen has all the plates and supplies you would need for making a meal.
This place does not have a TV. But you come to a place like this to unwind. Not sit around and watch TV.
This place does have wireless internet access. We didn't have any issues with our cell phones while staying here.
Like it says in the listing you can hear the waves from the bedroom. It was cold when we were there and even with the windows closed we heard the waves inside the cabin. You are steps away from the beach. I wish it was warmer when we were there. It would have been nice to go for a swim.
I hope this review helps others when booking this place.
