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.

It is a one of a kind property...the entire CLAN can be under one roof, but not under foot. Spacious and respectful of privacy as well as many large gathering spots for the entire group or family. IT IS AWESOME!

Close to everything, private and secluded - fabulous property manager who has only your comfort and enjoyment in mind. It is like having your own private INN - with all the amenities at your fingertips.

HIGHLIGHT OF OUR DOOR COUNTY VISIT

  • 5 of 5
Staying at the Sweetbriar Country Home was one of the highlights of our trip to Door County. This house elicited the same response from virtually everyone who stepped through the front door: “Oh, wow!” Our extended family of 18 people, ranging from ages 2 to 64, enjoyed a very comfortable 5-day stay. The bedroom suite with the nursery attached was perfect for the family with 3 young children. The kitchen was over the top with silverware, dishes, appliances and space! There was plenty of room to gather as a large group (a long dining room table seating 12+ comfortably; the fire pit outside was great at the end of the day), as well as many areas for privacy. The house is very tastefully decorated without being fussy. It took no time at all to feel at home there, and the owner was readily available by email and phone throughout our planning of the trip and during our stay. Sweetbriar will be on our list of great locations for future family reunions.

ALL THE ROOM YOU NEED (AND MORE)

  • 5 of 5
Our cooking club just finished our annual "Couples Weekend" at the Sweetbriar, and it was fantastic. This is our 9th year of having the weekend, but first at the Sweetbriar, and we will be back! Everything we needed was right there for us. Great for our group of 12 for meals, group activities - but large enough for us to escape one another if we needed to. The owners were extremely helpful and made sure we were taken care of. There were ZERO surprises! What you see is what you get - and with the Sweetbriar, that's A LOT!

EVERYTHING AS PROMISED

  • 5 of 5
It was the most perfect place for a large family gathering. We couldn't have been happier with the house and its location, close to all of the small villages of Door County. The property manager, Susan, is very helpful and accommodating. We will surely stay here again some time in the future!!

FUN FOR ALL

  • 5 of 5
Our group does reunions around the country. Since no one had been to Door County I was responsible for planning this year's reunion. All planning was done via e-mails and viewings on the internet so I wasn't totally sure what we would see when we got to the place. The first impression of the Sweetbriar truly is "Wow!" I doubt you will be disappointed by the place. We did have several questions when we first arrived but Deb and Susan were able to resolve them to everyone's satisfaction so that nothing marred the vacation. The rooms were beautifully decorated with each one being a bit different. Each couple was able to find a to their liking. The common areas were spacious and richly accessorized. The house is very well laid out with all the rooms roomier than they appear in the pictures. The breakfast porch was one of our favorite rooms. One night we decided to have each couple cook a part of the meal. The kitchen was so large and well-equipped, it was one of the funnest events of the weekend. Sitting out on the deck was a perfect place to relax from the day's activities and catch our collective breath before jumping into the evening's activities.

The Sweetbriar is well located. It is away from the total hubbub of some of the other towns without having to drive long distances to get to the fun. During our stay, people visited the lighthouses, many of the shops and museums, and the various beaches. We also played golf at the Alpine Golf Course (beautiful!) and had a fish boil at the White Gull Inn (tasty!)

The biggest compliment that we can give Deb is that people were saying the Sweetbriar should be the annual reunion meeting spot!



Thank you to Deb and Susan!

AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5
We celebrated my Parent's 50th Wedding Anniversary with the immediate family of 21. The home was just perfect for us. Each of the individual families had their own suite and the kids bunked downstairs. When reviewing the photos on the website after returning home, they were exactly how we found Sweetbriar. It was clean and spacious and had all the amenities of home. We filled our days and nights with family meals, card games and many rounds of "Catch phrase". We shared stories around the firepit in the evening and went out during the days to enjoy Sister Bay, Pennisula State Park, the wineries, golfing, biking, hiking, shopping and the like. We could not have asked for anything better. We would recommend it to all who want to have a great week of "bonding" with family and friends.
