Overview

Sister Bay Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Country House, 8 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 8.5 Baths, (Sleeps 20)

This private residence is a spectacular retreat offering all the comforts of home and unbelievable amenities for your vacation pleasure. It is as if you had your own private Inn. Sweetbriar is beautiful at any time of year with 5000+ square feet to enjoy inside, and sixteen acres of nature to explore outside. Beautiful gardens and woodchipped paths offer another outstanding amentity. Decorated with casual elegance and comfort for our guests, this luxurious home offers the perfect retreat in a country setting to soothe your mind and spirit.

Enjoy your vacation time with family and friends, in this eight bedroom home (six master suites with private bathrooms/Jacuzzi tubs and showers) as well as seven fireplaces, plus two very spacious bedrooms also with private baths and a separate nursery). Our home welcomes you to relax with its delightful accommodations, splendid common areas and enormous state of the art kitchen. The sun porch is a favorite spot with wall-to-wall windows. Eat in the cozy warmth of the kitchen, sun porch or gather in the dining room. Sweetbriar is designed to cater to all types of group gatherings, so with your convenience in mind, we have created a family friendly environment. The main level pleases all ages with cozy furnishings, a large screen plasma television, stereo system with music library and BOZE docking station, not to mention a kitchen you won't believe. A second floor is a great space for play and relaxation -- soundproof and private -there is a room for everyone...

Sweetbriar's location provides an aura of seclusion, close to Sister Bay activities and Door County attractions. Sweetbriar rests on sixteen meadowed acres at the southern edge of Sister Bay and is minutes from any water related activity you choose.

After exploring Door County or merely walking in our gardens and paths, you can relax in the great room with a wood burning fireplace and bar, or the library with one of the big screen televisions. Sweetbriar offers the best of both worlds -- great spaces to gather with the entire group and warm intimate corners for private moments.

Don't miss this unique opportunity to make your Door County dreams come true! We look forward to your visit. If the dates you desire are booked, you may want to check our other property: Camelot Cliffs, VRBO 169503 for availability. Thank you.

There is no place like home - except Sweetbriar!

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

This review is long overdue. We stayed at Sweetbriar in September. We all loved it! The bedrooms, the kitchen, the dining room, the sunroom, the deck, the fire pit -- where do I begin? It all came together to make it a wonderful vacation! The location is excellent, too. The owner thinks of everything for the comfort of guests and it is very much appreciated! We definitely will be back.

Santa Came To Town

  • 5 of 5

Our family gathering during the festive season was awesome. We have a ball, ages 8 months to 84. Game room for the teen agers keep them entertained. Everyone had their own space and gathering hours were equally spacious. Property employees were helpful. We are adventure seekers and our family of 20 plus loves gathering. Our deposit was returned as contracted. After the children saw Santa (Xmas Eve.) coming Thur the woods, adults were able to reflect on good times, far away "from the children. Sweetbriar is very spacous, romantic, and designed to entertain all ages and disabilities. We recommend To All.

Christmas in Sweetbriar

Our stay in Sister Bay was awesome. The home offered all the space a family of 20 plus could want. I would highly recommend Sweetbriar to anyone. This was my second stay and I'd go back in a heartbeat.

Work and Play Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, cozy and practical. Some worked and some played. Even during the off season there was plenty open close by, wine/olive oil and balsamic vinegar tasting were probably my favorites. Since it was quite cold out we really appreciated the fireplaces. We went to The English Inn for supper and it was excellent. The next day we ate breakfast, lunch and supper at the house. The kitchen is VERY well equipped and the dining room sat 12 of us very comfortably. You could really handle a big crowd easily.

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

Sweetbriar was the perfect location for our cousin get-together. The house is beautiful and beautifully decorated. It is warm, inviting and we felt at home the minute we walked in. We relaxed, cooked and enjoyed the most beautiful late summer days on the sun porch, massive deck and around the fire pit. Regardless of the large living spaces, we seemed to congregate most often in the beautiful, bright kitchen. The massive island is perfect for cooking, and equally perfect to gather around. The photos of the rooms are real; you will find everything as pictured only better. The owner was wonderful to work with and obviously takes great pride in Sweetbriar.

Perfect house for a family reunion or large group

  • 5 of 5

What an outstanding house! The pictures don't do it justice and the house exceeded our expectations. We had this house (plus two other rental properties) for a large family reunion. We have lots of cooks in the family and all were very pleased with the dishes, pots/pans, etc. in the kitchen-it had anything you would want. The dining room table was perfect for family games. The sun room was one of the favorite rooms-awesome for coffee in the morning and we had a puzzle going non-stop on the table in there. The deck and fire pit were fun too. The bedrooms were great and everyone was happy with their mattress (which rarely happens). We agreed to come back to the house for our next reunion. We have been coming to Sister Bay for 30+ years and this house is a perfect home base for a large group visiting Door County.
