Door County Peninsula and Washington Island has over 300 miles of scenic shoreline dotted with bustling harbors and quiet coves, Door County offers a wealth of water-based recreation. Sandy beaches, sailing, cruising, boating, fishing, boat rentals, charters or a unique car ferry ride to Washington Island are just a few ways to enjoy the sparkling waters of Green Bay and Lake Michigan.

Visit one or all of Door County's wineries during your visit to the Door Peninsula. The wineries offer a variety of award-winning locally produced wines along with tours and/or wine tasting facilities. Want to purchase a bottle or more of wine from Door County's local wineries? No problem - each of Door County's wineries offers on-site sales in addition to tasting opportunities. Enjoy!

With the bay of Green Bay on one side and Lake Michigan on the other, Door County's 300 miles of shoreline enclose not only the Midwest's choice vacation destination, but also the ideal golf vacation spots. Door County Wisconsin offers golf courses that will challenge you, whatever your skill level.

Eleven golf courses call the Door County Peninsula home, and have from 9 to 36 holes each. Golf courses are located from south of Sturgeon Bay to Washington Island, and most places in between. All courses offer a range of greens fees to accommodate both the weekend golfer and the 3-handicapper, and some courses also offer lessons for those who would like to learn the game.

Biking/Cycling in Door County

Door County's 100 miles of backroad biking have everything from trails through our state parks to country roads through fields and orchards. Biking is a great way to discover the Door. Free maps are available through the Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center. Mountain bikers particularly enjoy the 15-mile Ahnapee Trail that connects Algoma with Sturgeon Bay. Families and couples enjoy biking on the wooded off-road trails at Peninsula State Park (eight miles), Newport State Park (13 miles), Potawatomi State Park (four miles). Two popular bike rides in the county are the Ridges Sanctuary Ride in June and the Door County Century Ride in September. Bring your bikes!

Cherry orchards

Door County has a history of cherry growing that dates back to the 1800s. Soil and weather conditions - warm days and cool nights - influenced by Lake Michigan and Green Bay have created an ideal situation for growing these delicious fruits. Today with around 2,000 acres of cherry orchards and another 500 acres of apple orchards, Door County is filled with blossoms in the spring and is richly decorated with the delicious fruits in the late summer and fall.

Montmorency cherries are usually picked from mid July to early/mid August. Early varieties of apple orchards, such as Paulareds, are harvested as early as late August. Golden Delicious are harvested through mid October.

Cherry and apple stands can be found along many of Door County's country roads in season. Picking your own apples and cherries can be a fun and tasty part of your visit to Door County.

We just returned from our vacation to Door County and this fabulous cottage. The pictures do NOT do justice to this place. From the moment we walked in the door until we left two days ago we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The pool was the highlight, with its 1 foot deep toddler/lounge chair area, the steps, and slide with water, and it was deep enough in the middle for adults. The bedrooms were large, the kitchen was awesome, the main floor living room and sun room were great, the basement family room was a hit with the kids and the garage became a haven for the late night bean bag toss games that we brought. (The bedrooms with the twin beds actually had more beds than advertised - a nice surprise.) I have never been inspired to write a review before, but this place deserves it. Private yet close to everything. We hope to return.

Great home, Great Owner and Great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a family get together for Memorial Day weekend trip. We had a great time here. The house is in great condition, nice pool and large clean bedrooms. Nice sun room. Enough for a big group of people. It's in a quiet area with lots of privacy but also close to many great parks and other Door County towns and attractions. The house is equipped with most of the necessary things you need for the trip, including a BBQ grill. Nice deck.

And the last Great owner, great communication.

Great home/kind owner!

  • 5 of 5

This review is very late in the making! We stayed at this property for our annual Memorial Day Weekend trip with friends last year and had a blast. As we began to plan our trip this year I realized I had never written a well-deserved 5 star review for Duane. The house, in addition to being spacious and clean, was a wonderful home base for our adventures. The family room downstairs was full of toys and provided a lot of fun for the kids. It's in a quiet area with lots of privacy but also close to many great parks and other Door County towns and attractions. Duane was also very responsive and kind when we had trouble with our bank giving us checks with the wrong account number on them. He also mailed back our friend's portable speaker that was left behind on accident.

To die for!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, kids, in-laws, and myself arrived the last week of June 2014. From the outside, the house looks pretty basic and ordinary. The inside took our breath away. So beautiful, clean, equiped with everything you'll need. Communication and funds transaction with the owner was a breeze through Chase. The downstairs has a play room with tons of space. My family and I fell in love with the house, the privacy, the serenity, everything! Since then, we talk about it all the time.

My favorite room was the sun room where I laid out a fire every evening. It made me melt each time. The kitchen is HUGE! Can't ask for anything more than a double fridge. Living room is enormous. We could've stayed locked away in that house all week and been satisfied with that being our vacation. All of us had plenty of space to stretch our legs in the house and seek privacy when desired.

The house is also equipment with 4 bicycles (2 adults, 2 kids). My son learned to ride bike on this trip with the loaner bike. This house, this trip, will be forever engraved in our memories. It never rained. The mornings and evenings filled the air with dew and the temperature everyday was around 70 deg. AMAZING!

Everything went right on this trip considering it was our very first time visiting Door County. And having such an amazing place to spend our days in was just heavenly.

Thank you to the owners for taking good care of the house and lawn. I hope to be back again!

Large property with everything you'll need for a great vacation

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for a girls weekend in the fall and it was perfect for our group. The house was very clean and well organized. The kitchen was a great spot to hang out and was fully stocked with everything we could possibly need from pots to pans to even double fridges. Since it was October we didn't have a chance to utilize the pool but it looks like a perfect set-up for families in the summer. They also have a lot of children's equipment including play houses, toys, strollers, and high chairs. The house is tucked back in a wooded area and in the fall the colors were awesome. We were able to take a quick 2 minute walk to check out the lake and one morning I took a lovely run to Cave Point. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking for a great place to stay in Door County.

6 STARS........... comfortable and well maintained!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a better experience staying at this cottage for our family vacation in Door County. The house and grounds were just as wonderful as the pictures showed and the property was extremely welcoming and inviting. We felt right at home during our stay. It made our trip that much more enjoyable knowing that we could stay in such a comfortable and well maintained house with no worries. Awesome to have a huge kitchen, washer and dryer, air conditioning, and a fire pit. It was private and truly felt like a home away from home during our stay. One example of the little things/details that make this house exceptional is the owner keeps a full extra LP tank for the gas grill. It is nice to have the use of the garage especially when you bring 6 bikes and 4 kayaks.

All our kids loved the cottage! The home is amazing. We enjoyed the large open main room. The kitchen was a frequent gathering spot and everything was clean and worked great. We spent several evenings making fires in the outside fire pit. Bedrooms are large and very comfortable. The location is set back into the woods so very private and quiet yet very close to many of Door County's favorite areas. The house was even better than advertised, very comfortable, clean, bright and well designed. This is a 6 star rental!!!! The owner couldn't be nicer or more helpful to work with.
