BEAUTIFUL COTTAGE IN NORTHERN DOOR ON THE SHORE OF GREEN BAY

Ellison Bay Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 3-5)

RECENTLY NAMED THE BEST WATERFRONT COTTAGE IN THE TRAVEL GUIDE,

''BEST BETS OF NORTHERN DOOR COUNTY!''

Schwandt Cottage, in beautiful Gills Rock, is the perfect place for rest and relaxation. The cottage was once owned by one of the fishing families of Door County. It has been painstakingly restored to one of the quaintest, most delightful cottages in the area.

Gills Rock is in northern Door County, away from the hustle and bustle of some of the other towns in the County. It is significantly quieter, with less traffic. It is certainly possible to come to Schwandt Cottage and stay a week without leaving....it is just hard to leave after you get there, regardless of the season.

The View....: The view is outstanding! From the living room, the deck, the kitchen, and the private beach, guests can watch the changing moods of Green Bay, local fisherman coming and going, the incredible sunset which always provides an outstanding skyscape at the end of the day, and an occasional glimpse of a freighter passing the Door.

The Seasons....: Spring, summer and fall are all beautiful times to visit Schwandt Cottage. Week rentals are required for July and August, and a minimum of three days during the other seasons of the year. Schwandt Cottage is closed from early December until late March. Check your calendars....we are accepting reservations!!!!

Cozy cottage, breathtaking sunsets!

  • 5 of 5
Love this place. The cozy cottage greeted us with fresh flowers, pumpkins, and a huge jar of peanut M&Ms. Proximity to the water and the sunsets are unmatched. Great deck for eating breakfast or playing a game of BananaGrams. And, despite the "remote" location at the tip of Gills Rock, it's walking distance to the Shoreline Restaurant, where we had the best dinner of the week. We will definitely return.

Beautiful view, right on the water!

  • 5 of 5
We spent 4 nights in this clean, comfortable cottage. The pictures and description are completely accurate. The owners are incredibly helpful and send a packet of information including nearby activities and restaurants prior to your arrival. The view is spectacular so you are enjoying the water, the birds, the trees, and nature in general even inside of the cottage. We also particularly enjoyed the firepit and the indoor fireplace. The location is steps away from the passenger/bike ferry to Washington Island where we enjoyed biking and riding Icelandic horses, which are hypoallergenic! Charlie's Smokehouse is steps away as well offering, among other things, an incredible salmon/whitefish dip. We loved the hustle and bustle as we explored Door County during the day. We also loved coming back to our beautiful cottage in the evening to enjoy our peaceful surroundings. We hope to make this a yearly getaway.

Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful cottage. The pictures do not lie, the view is all that, and more. For example, we spent most of our first day here just peering out the large picture window identifying the various waterfowl feeding in the bay (which consisted of swans, ducks, pelicans, gulls, and cormorants). There's an occasional fishing boat coming and going, and the ferry to Washington Island leaves from the dock just two doors down. Upon arrival, you're immersed in the tranquil historic fishing community that is Gills Rock (some great books about the area on-site). The hustle and bustle of some of the more populous Door County towns seems far away as you sip a drink on the rocky shoreline beside a warm fire. Make no mistake, this is one of the best views in the state, let alone the county.

Back inside, the well-equipped kitchen makes it easy to cook your own meals. The cabin itself is cozy, but has everything you'll need. The decoration has a maritime theme, with much of the artwork depicting actual local historic/current fishing boats. This is fitting, since you can see modern-day fishermen bring in their whitefish haul right out of the picture window. Some of that catch gets sold to Charlie's Smokehouse, which is also located on the dock... best smoked fish ever! The best way to describe the cottage itself is "worry-free". This applies to everything, including those little things that renters often worry about: enough towels, comfy beds, great location, etc.

The owners have poured their love into this property, and the "at home" feeling comes through. We'll be back (again). There's few places we'd rather be.

Door County Treasure

  • 5 of 5
A perfect place for our anniversary getaway. We are always looking for places to stay near water and this little bay was lovely. The pictures in the listing convinced us and they didn't lie. The cottage was beautifully decorated, with all the conveniences . . . and more. Thoughtful details and information about the area sent ahead of time made the experience even more special. The owners couldn't be more welcoming. The location at the tip of the Door County Peninsula in Gills Rock was perfect, a quiet spot, yet with plenty to do and great food nearby. We will definitely be back!
