Sister Bay Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Country House, 8 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 8.5 Baths, (Sleeps 20)

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.

There is no place like home - except Sweetbriar!

Why Deborah Homan chose Door County

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!

Plenty of Room for Everyone!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 14 - 16 people (couples) come back to this home every year for our cross-country ski trip. It has all the amenities you could possibly want, and more. It is very clean, warm and inviting, and we enjoy being able to spread out and lounge around before we begin our activities. In addition to skiing, we like to hike, snowshoe, etc. We would highly recommend this property to anyone that is looking for a bit of heaven!! You won't be disappointed.

Can't wait for next year!!

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have had a better experience at Sweetbriar. We have four newly married children and they loved having their own space that felt like a romantic retreat, with luxurious baths and seating areas by their own fireplaces. Four poster beds, wingback chairs, and tastefully decorated suites felt like a special retreat. Their were several gathering spaces in the home--a sun porch area for doing puzzles and playing games, or just rocking in the wicker rockers enjoying morning coffee... a family room with a fireplace and wine bar, and a living room with a large television where we all gathered to watch the Cub's game! We had 16 of us gathered around the dining room table and the KITCHEN!! The kitchen was perfect for FIVE of us cooking at the same time--true perfection!

We have been doing this family reunion in Door County for over 60 years and we hope to make Sweetbriar our 'home' during our fall celebration.

Would highly recommend!

Perfect family gathering

  • 5 of 5

Sweetbriar was a big part of why our family gathering was such a success. The house is well maintained, beautifully decorated, the best stocked kitchen of any vacation rental, and with several "gathering areas". The grounds are also beautiful and it's nice to be on a large piece of property that offers privacy. While we spent a lot of time around the large kitchen island, we play cards so having a dining table to accommodate that is critical and Sweetbriar's was perfect. Loved the fire pit but spent most of the time enjoying the beautiful weather on the large deck with plenty of seating for our group. Just as important as the "gathering area" is the ability to escape and each bedroom with an ensuite, sitting area, and most with fireplaces gave everyone the opportunity to just that. Additionally there were several large TV's for those who needed their sports fix. I highly recommend this property and will be back.

Great home for four generations!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our annual family weekend! There were 4 generations together under one roof! The house was handicap accessible for the oldest in our group. The bedroom suite with attached nursery was perfect for the youngest in our family. The house had everything we needed. We especially enjoyed hiking through the trails around the property, sitting around the firepit and watching the Packers beat the Bears on Sunday afternoon! Dinner at the Mission grill, celebrating two birthdays, was excellent. Highly recommend this property.

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

This review is long overdue. We stayed at Sweetbriar in September. We all loved it! The bedrooms, the kitchen, the dining room, the sunroom, the deck, the fire pit -- where do I begin? It all came together to make it a wonderful vacation! The location is excellent, too. The owner thinks of everything for the comfort of guests and it is very much appreciated! We definitely will be back.

Santa Came To Town

  • 5 of 5

Our family gathering during the festive season was awesome. We have a ball, ages 8 months to 84. Game room for the teen agers keep them entertained. Everyone had their own space and gathering hours were equally spacious. Property employees were helpful. We are adventure seekers and our family of 20 plus loves gathering. Our deposit was returned as contracted. After the children saw Santa (Xmas Eve.) coming Thur the woods, adults were able to reflect on good times, far away "from the children. Sweetbriar is very spacous, romantic, and designed to entertain all ages and disabilities. We recommend To All.
