About Peter

Growing up in Wisconsin I used to spend many summers in Door County with my grandparents who were avid boaters. When I got married my wife and I were once again drawn to the waters of Door County and have been spending our summers with the kids 'up north' for the past 18 years.

In 2004 along with a business partner and friend we created The Shipyard, a unique waterfront community in the heart of Sturgeon Bay and CenterPointe Marina, a world class boating facility unmatched in the Great Lakes. To ensure that all members of the public could enjoy the lifestyle we created, we built what are known as The Marina Cottages and offer them throughout the year on either nightly or weekly rentals.

Peter purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Peter chose Sturgeon Bay

We chose Sturgeon Bay because of its location in Door County and because of its unique access to two great bodies of water, Lake Michigan and the bay of Green Bay. Situated in the heart of town, we are only blocks from the library, hospital, YMCA, post office, many churches and all of the shopping and dining we need.

Nice space, great view!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for three nights over the Thanksgiving holiday and enjoyed the quiet surroundings, beautiful views and easy access to everything. The space was great for allowing different activities - whether reading quietly, watching TV or just chilling. It was clean and well-maintained -- always a plus.

Good Marina-front Location.

  • 3 of 5

Overall, the location was really good, and the property itself was great. My family and I would totally recommend a stay in Door County. We hope to come many times in the future. Below are some suggestions for improvement:

1) Spider Webs - With the great bay area climate, one of the first inclinations we had were to open up the windows. However, many of the windows, especially on the top floor had spider webs and nests on the exterior of the windows. Therefore, we did not take advantage of opening the windows and letting the cool breeze come in. I would suggest that at least a cursory cleaning of the webs be done between stays.

2) No dressers: I know that some travelers are ok with keeping and swapping clothes out of suitcases. However, with a family of 4, we prefer to unpack and place clothes in dressers. Perhaps some small ones would be a nice addition.

3) Weak Wi-Fi signal: The wireless connectivity is really weak, especially since the cottages are trying to connect to the router in the clubhouse next door. A router per cottage or getting a more powerful clubhouse router would be a good improvement.

4) Missing Wall Art: There were various areas where there were visible nails in the wall with no art. This can be improved.

5) Broken DVD player in the cottage - Needs repair

6) Our key did not work for the indoor pool and fitness facility after office hours.

7) Top floor was warm, including in the evenings, with little AC circulation from the bottom floor unit and thermostat.

If some or most of these concerns are addressed, then the stay would easily be upgraded to 4 or 5 stars. Thanks.

Beautiful waterfront setting

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd stay in the CenterPointe cottages and we continue to be impressed with the beautiful setting and the staff we have worked with. The location is perfect, within walking distance to numerous shops, restaurants, and places to listen to live music. Many places to walk or bike too and is a short drive to places such as Egg Harbor, Fish Creek, Whitefish Bay, etc. Centerpointe has many amenities, such as outdoor & indoor pools, a fitness room, clubhouse with patio overlooking the Marina and Sturgeon Bay, etc. Though the washing machine can be noisy, we would run it when we left the cottage so it wasn't an issue. You will enjoy the sunlit rooms and upper deck overlooking the bay and watching the boats in the marina. We always enjoy walking the docks too. In the evening the outdoor fireplace is a great gathering spot. We will definitely return! Deb & Brad

Suburban Chicago couple

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay because of the great location, accessibility to DC activities and wonderful waters. Rental is cute. The third floor doesn't cool down well. Kitchen wasn't equipped as well as we would have it would be. Had to buy some essential utensils. We left them there for next renters. Not enough towels even with washer and dryer which are really loud. Marina personnel were great but office was not organized and ended up over charging us which they say they will refund. Marina is top notch. Beds are nice, sofa bed not so much. How it could sleep 8 we can't figure.
