Treat yourself to a classic Door County get-away. The Beach House is nestled on one of the quietest stretches of beach along Lake Michigan. Enjoy breathtaking sunrises, quiet walks, a beach fire under the stars, and the sound of waves at night. You might even spot the pair of nesting bald eagles just to the south.
The cottage is located between Jacksonport and Baileys Harbor. This location allows you to enjoy the “Quietside” of Door County with easy access to such attractions as Whitefish Dunes State Park, Maxwelton Braes Golf Course and Cana Island Lighthouse. While there are many excellent shops and restaurants nearby, the Green Bay side of Door County is just minutes away.
The Beach House has a fully equipped kitchen and a charcoal grill for your use. It has a queen size bed in the bedroom and a full mattress in the sleeping loft. The main room also includes a sleeper sofa. The bathroom has been recently remodeled. You won't find the distractions of a TV or the internet, but you can view your favorite movies on a DVD player. Many of our guests find the screened-in porch overlooking the beach as the best place to curl up with a good book.
The cottage can be heated should the weather be unseasonably cold. Beach House is a housekeeping cottage. Blankets and pillows are there for your use. Linens and towels are not provided.

I am an "ocean person" but when our budget determines that we stay in the midwest, the Beach House at Quietside Cottages is my first choice. The cottage is just steps up from the lakeshore, so close that, on a wavy day, I can hear the waves lapping the shoreline from the screened porch. That sound soothes my soul!
The beach is sandy, secluded and we can walk for miles in either direction. The cottage is well-appointed--we found everything we needed there. The bed is comfortable. The cottage is clean and well-maintained.
We enjoyed our stay and will definitely return.
Quietside cottages were just what I was hoping they would be...comfortable, clean, cute and calming. I pulled up after dark and the first sounds I heard were the waves crashing on beach. I felt like I was at the ocean! After dropping my bags in the cottage, I headed down to see the moonlight show the lake was putting on. It was spectacular. I couldn't wait for morning to come. It dawned in silence and serenity. The sky opened up in a beautiful sunrise and the lake was as peaceful as my sleep had been. I walked the beach over and over and was amazed at the ever changing beauty of the Quiet-Side of Lake Michigan. Enjoying the cottage in the woods was just as nice as enjoying the beach. The shops and good coffee nearby were a treat. I came home totally refreshed. I recommend the Quietside property wholeheartedly and can't wait to go back.
The name says quiet, but the expereince is packed with lake front views, walks/runs along the beach, climbing on the rocks, campfires and of course, a good book.
The cottage has been recenlty renovated and is clean and well-maintained. The bathroom has been updated and the cottage is comfortable.
Lots to do in Door County. Or stay by the lake to swim, walk, or relax.
I certainly recommend and look foward to my next visit.
