CLAY BANKS RETREAT A QUIET CABIN ON LAKE MICHIGAN

Sturgeon Bay House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6 adults = 2 Childern)

Located in Southern Door County on a private dead end road. We offer the peace and tranquility one searches for. Our three bedroom, two bath home on Lake Michigan offers amazing views of the ever changing lake and her skies. Fall asleep to the waves lapping the shores of Clay Banks. Awake to spectacular sunrises resplendent with colors and water fowl. Relax with your favorite Door County wine while soaking in the spa under a full moon or catch the evening display of stars as the big ships silently pass by. See more pictures and get more information and at our website claybanksretreat dot com.

Whether you enjoy fishing, boating, golfing, hiking, site seeing, shopping, wine tasting, or art galleries, Door County has it all.

Only minutes from the Algoma marina is some of the best charter fishing the peninsula has to offer. Launch your own boat or try your luck from the pier. With more than five wineries throughout the peninsula you're sure to find a wine that suits your palate. Door has more golf courses than clubs are legally allowed in your bag, but make your reservation early, the courses fill quickly.

Many activities can be enjoyed without leaving the property. The front yard offers a legal height basketball hoop and the back side sports a Bocci ball court. After a cut throat game of Bocci relax in the spa or enjoy a drink on the deck with spectacular views. When the day comes to a close there is always a large fire ring to enjoy a fire side chat with family and friends and take in the night air.

Warm and welcoming family room with plenty of seating. Satellite T.V. with dvd/vcr player and XBox 360 game system (BYO games) for those rainy days and lazy nights. There is a full list of DVD's. Comfy rocking chair and side table when that good book just can't wait.

Kitchen opens up to family room and is fully stocked with all you need to whip up a hearty breakfast or dinner.

We proudly look forward to serving many repeat customers. Our customers can look to us for great quality and incredible value. We will strive to deliver on these expectations every time.

Please allow us to welcome you and your guest to Clay Banks Retreat.

We have been Door travelers for many many years. We are also landlords back in the city. So we believe we have a good understanding of what vacationers want. Safe, clean and fund places! This property has all that. Please visit our website at claybanksretreat.com for more pictures and information about Clay Banks Retreat.

Dean or Corinne Zajac purchased this house in 2003

We purchased this property mostly based on its solitude and views of the lake. It also has very shallow and safe swimming along with an open yard for our children to play which was very attractive to us. Located in southern Door the cabin is off the beaten trail yet close enough to be able to enjoy all of what Door County has to offer. And yet only 2 hours from the north side of Milwaukee. Southern Door is easy to get to on a Friday night. This means you can enjoy it much more often!

Solitude, yet close enough to the shops, parks and unique peninsula towns. Safe swimming, large yard, hot tub, basketball and wrap around deck to hide from the winds on a breezy lake day.

Our stay at Clay Banks Retreat (271777) was quite pleasant. It is on a private and dead end road so it is quite and no traffic. It is minuets north of Algoma, so not a long drive from the greater Milwaukee area, yet sits down in a hollow right on Lake Michigan so you have that up north feel. It was just like the pictures on the website. It has a wooden cabin look but the interior is modern and clean. The wrap around deck is great with a large hot tub on the Lake Michigan side so you can look out at the lake and relax in the hot tub. Some of our party sat on the deck and read a book. My son and I took advantage of the good fishing in the area and went fishing on the nearby Stony Creek (walking distance from the cabin). There is also fishing on the break wall in Algoma. We also got a round of golf in that is also relatively close by.

The cabin was just as the owners described and it was on the water. The directions they gave us were awsome. The cabin itself is on a quite road and although there are neighbors it felt very private. We ventured up the pinnisula daily and from the cabin its only about 45 min to the washington island ferry.
The home was kept very clean and stocked to the 9s w utensils. Would definitly reccomend this cabin to others. Thanks Again and I am sure we will see you soon..

The listing was exactly like listed, it is a very beautiful home, private and quiet. We arrived on motorcycles, was told would be short distance of gravel prior to booking. This home is tucked in along Lake Michigan with a beautiful view of the lake. Did have troubles getting the hot tub out of sleep mode, but with owner's returning our call, walked us through and it heated up for us to enjoy. Also offers many games, fire ring and plenty of inside and outside seating space available for all to be comfortable. We enjoyed riding our motorcycles through Door Co., very beautiful and was a great ride. The owner's were very accommodating prior and after booking to answer any questions we had.

Birthday Surprise Weekend

After a short ride along a lovely wooded road we arrived at the cabin only to be made feel so welcomed by a nice bottle of wine on the dining room table and fully stocked bathrooms and kitchen. There were brochures for area attractions which was a nice touch. There was more than enough for the seven of us to eat, sleep, play or relax without getting in each other's way. The view of the lake was exquisite at any time of the day - especially from the hot tub! The grandkids had a ball playing in the spacious front and back yards. Many intense games of lawn dice, H-O-R-S-E and one-on-one basketball games were played and then rehashed while relaxing on the great wrap around deck. Several wineries were less than an hour's drive away and were definitely visited! We didn't get a chance to build a fire in the fire pit because of the rain we had, but I noticed that there was a large supply of wood if we had had the chance to do so. It was so nice and quiet sitting outside in the evenings with a "cold one" while listening to the waves splash upon the shore. We did take the short - less than 15 minute ride to Algoma on Sunday morning for a fishing charter. The fish weren't hitting a lot, but it was fun and we caught a few - I'd definitely do it again. We all had a very nice weekend and would love to come here again.

Owner's Response: Linda,

Sorry the weather did not cooperate, but very glad to hear you took advantage of all the lake has to offer. Sounds like you had a fabulous time. We really appreciate how clean you left the cabin, hope to see you again!

Sincerely,

Dean and Corinne

Dear Dean and Corinne,

We are safely home from Wisconsin after a long day of travel! I just wanted to send you a little note to thank you for sharing your wonderful cabin with us! We absolutely loved it, and we really appreciated all the helpful hints about sightseeing and instructions for games and household directions etc. We could not believe how beautiful the lake is and how comfortable the house is. You have done a wonderful job updated the house and making it homey and very functional! The four days went way, way, way too fast! Our boys both want to return next year!
