From this sun lit clearing in the 3.5 acre woods along the Door County shore, visitors will experience the tranquility, the freshness, and the beauty of this peninsula. The backyard makes a perfect morning birding site. Grab an afternoon nap on the deck. At night observe the brilliant sky and conduct your own meteor count. Awaken to the song birds; fall asleep to the sounds of waves. Explore the woods on the property, looking for wild flowers in the spring or visit any of several local parks, located nearby: Newport Park, Door Bluff County Park. Hike or bike the local roads summer and fall or head for many designated hiking areas. Sled the lane in the winter and x-country at nearby trails. Take a short walk to the local coffee house in Gills Rock for morning coffee or midmorning cherry pie. Have dinner at The Shore Line Restaurant in Gills Rock , one of Door's best restaurants; it, too, is just a short stroll.

Amazing location, clean, comfortable!

  • 5 of 5
The cabin is cute, comfortable, and very clean! The location was perfect! Feels secluded (you can see just a tiny big of neighboring cabins, but that was fine with us), and the view is amazing! There are outdoor chairs on a porch, near the lake, and a great stair straight down to the lake, where there are more chairs and a firepit (though we had some bad weather and the firepit unfortunately blew away!!). Also a firepit near the cabin. Highly recommend!!!

Relaxing/Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at Little House on the Bay. The view was amazing and gorgeous! Our 9 year old had a blast playing down by the water and enjoying the fire pit both at the waters edge as well as the one right up near the cottage. I would recommend this place to families or just couples as well. The owners were also very friendly and accommodating. Can't wait to go back!

Perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I were immediately blown away as we pulled into the drive way of the "Little house on the Bay." We knew we made the right choice before even entering the cottage because the view was so breath taking. The cottage was the perfect size for our family of four and extremely clean which is very important to us. We would recommend the cottage to any of our friends and family because we know they would be more than pleased as they pull up to the " Little House on the Bay." The surrounding area offers parks and restaurants and the perfect coffee shop with in walking distance that we used every day. I can't say enough good things about this place and hope you get the opportunity to see for yourself.

Perfect Spot on the Tip of Door County

  • 5 of 5
First time my wife and I spent time in Door County together and we couldn't have picked a better spot to stay than the Little House on the Bay! The location was fantastic because of its privacy and for being so close to the shoreline. Early morning coffee and evening sunsets were spectacular. The cottage was clean and cozy. The regular Door County hot spots were a short 20 minute drive away which we actually preferred. Overall our experience was a memorable one and we'll hopefully be coming back for another getaway soon!

Serenity!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Little House last summer and thoroughly enjoyed it! (A death in the family meant an early departure for us and contributed to the delay in my review, but we are anxious to return again soon!) Dan made the arrangements so easy and was accommodating and fun to chat with. If you like secluded and quiet and want your own little hideaway in Door County, this is it. I've been coming to DC since I was very small, so I don't need a lot of the touristy stuff or anything fancy, but being close to the water is a MUST. This view is breathtaking -- could have sat and gazed out on the bay forever - in the sun with a book during the day, at dusk with cocktails, in the evening with the sunset. It was a nice to be off the beaten path in a more rustic setting but still close enough to walk to the nearby coffee shop or the wonderful Shoreline restaurant for a dinner and a glass of wine. When we visited, the steps to the beach weren't quite finished and that was probably the only other thing the place needed so I'm sure it's truly perfection now!
