Right on the Water on the Quiet Side of Door County

  • 5 of 5

This is a cozy cottage, ideal for a couple who are looking to relax right on the water. It's conveniently located in Jacksonport - north of Whitefish Dunes State Park, Cave Point County Park and Clark Lake. After a long day of activity, this is the ideal place to return to and relax. There are plenty of lawn chairs, a comfortable hammock and variety of beach toys to enjoy on the sand beach. We have our own kayaks, but there is one at the house along with a paddleboard. The house is well maintained and cared for by the owners. Jim, the owner, is great to work with and provides all the house details prior to your arrival. There is WiFi and it works well; however, if you're looking to unplug and get away from the digital life, this is the place to be - take a long walk on the sandy beach, read a book from the great selection the owners provide, lay in the hammock and listen to the birds sing, go for a swim in the cool Lake Michigan water, make a meal on one of the grills (propane or charcoal) - so much go do to relax and unwind.

Great anniversary weekend

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Cedar Shores cottage. A very clean and cozy place. Enjoyed the beautiful view of Lake Michigan! How nice to have the beach right out your back door. We enjoyed our morning and evening walks and surprised at how far you could walk the beach. Can't wait for our next trip there.

The house had everything we needed, very clean! But we would have liked air conditioning.

  • 5 of 5

They kept the house and beach very clean! We loved it! We would love to go back. It was a very humid week so air would have been nice at night. But because it was warm the lake was perfect! Highly recommend this house!!

Perfect "feels like home" cottage nestled next to the lake

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Jacksonport cottage in October. The cottage was very clean, quite comfortable, and quiet! The gorgeous view of Lake Michigan from the family room picture window was priceless! Venturing outdoors with a cup of coffee and ample adirondack seating to choose from, watching the sunrise from the lake's horizon was the perfect way to start the day. Walking along the shore greeting a few walkers and friendly dogs while enjoying the fresh air and lapping sounds of the lake, was just another great way to begin the day.

Only a 15-minute drive to Sister Bay, where we were lucky to witness a breathtaking subdued rainbow streaked sunset and also visited the goats on the roof of Al Johnson's. We took a detour off the regular route to Ephraim and found a roadside wagon loaded with a variety of pumpkins and gourds and the kids were thrilled. All-you-can eat soup lunch at the Summer Kitchen was delicious and then we headed to Red Putter for mini-golf, which was very reasonable for the entire family and of course fun! Also, enjoyed an afternoon of leisurely driving through Door County while stopping for the occasional outdoor markets and to take pictures of the beautiful fall foliage.

The cottage felt like home, beds were comfy, bathroom updated and clean, plenty of games to play with family in the evening, and a variety of birds to view out back with the occasional crafty squirrels stealing seeds. We would love to visit the cottage again in the future!
