This private residence is a spectacular retreat offering all the comforts of home and unbelievable amenities for your vacation pleasure. It is as if you had your own private Inn. Sweetbriar is beautiful at any time of year with 5000+ square feet to enjoy inside, and sixteen acres of nature to explore outside. Beautiful gardens and woodchipped paths offer another outstanding amentity. Decorated with casual elegance and comfort for our guests, this luxurious home offers the perfect retreat in a country setting to soothe your mind and spirit.

Enjoy your vacation time with family and friends, in this eight bedroom home (six master suites with private bathrooms/Jacuzzi tubs and showers) as well as seven fireplaces, plus two very spacious bedrooms also with private baths and a separate nursery). Our home welcomes you to relax with its delightful accommodations, splendid common areas and enormous state of the art kitchen. The sun porch is a favorite spot with wall-to-wall windows. Eat in the cozy warmth of the kitchen, sun porch or gather in the dining room. Sweetbriar is designed to cater to all types of group gatherings, so with your convenience in mind, we have created a family friendly environment. The main level pleases all ages with cozy furnishings, a large screen plasma television, stereo system with music library and BOZE docking station, not to mention a kitchen you won't believe. A second floor is a great space for play and relaxation -- soundproof and private -there is a room for everyone...

Sweetbriar's location provides an aura of seclusion, close to Sister Bay activities and Door County attractions. Sweetbriar rests on sixteen meadowed acres at the southern edge of Sister Bay and is minutes from any water related activity you choose.

After exploring Door County or merely walking in our gardens and paths, you can relax in the great room with a wood burning fireplace and bar, or the library with one of the big screen televisions. Sweetbriar offers the best of both worlds -- great spaces to gather with the entire group and warm intimate corners for private moments.

Don't miss this unique opportunity to make your Door County dreams come true! We look forward to your visit. If the dates you desire are booked, you may want to check our other property: Camelot Cliffs, VRBO 169503 for availability. Thank you.

Why Deborah Homan chose Sister Bay

It is a one of a kind property...the entire CLAN can be under one roof, but not under foot. Spacious and respectful of privacy as well as many large gathering spots for the entire group or family. IT IS AWESOME!

What a great place for a large group in Sister Bay!

  • 5 of 5

This is the PERFECT location for a large group looking to tour Door County. The house is HUGE!! We had 6 couples and didn't even use the basement much at all, so you could easily have 8 or 9 couples stay here for an extended period. Lots of space, lots of opportunity for fun, and the owner was incredibly helpful. I wish I could give 6 or 7 stars!

Our ‘go to’ place in DC

  • 5 of 5

We have a family reunion here every October and it couldn’t be more perfect. Enough beds and baths for all, kitchen is better equipped than my own. Enjoy the sunrise from the living room and sunsets from the sun porch. The perfect space.

Family reunion

  • 5 of 5

Every other year we stay in a VRBO, this is our 3rd stay and by far the best home we have stayed in! 12 of us and we all had our own bath, kitchen large enough for 6 women to cook in, sun porch was our main room but I think all but 1 living area was used. Dinner time was awesome, we could all sit around the large table and converse, play cards and relax. The area was great, we segwayed in Penninsula State park, hiked, shopped, golfed and sat by the dodo bird around a fabulous fire pit. Overall, best week!

Large, well equipped home. Grounds are beautiful.

  • 4 of 5

This is the third year we have stayed here and love the tasteful decor, high end kitchen appliances and multiple ensuites. The whole place- especially the kitchen- needs a thorough cleaning. We appreciate that the place is popular and needs to be quickly turned over for incoming guests, but given the investment this property represents, a top to bottom "Spring" cleaning would ensure it is kept pristine and white glove ready. Nonetheless, we will be back.

Wonderful gathering spot

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 12 were from all parts of the country and Sweetbriar was a perfect gathering spot. The facility had so many different spaces where people could gather and not feel on top of each other. Sweetbriar provided so many supplies that it made moving in very easy. Everyone walked in and was impressed and amazed with the facility. They instantly fell in love with Sweetbriar.
