About Tammy Leemon

I have been working in the Construction PM/Management field for over 17 years. I currently live and work in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (Middle East). My career takes up most of my time in a day. But when I am not working, I enjoy the outdoors; including swimming, exercising at the gym, riding horses, walking, sitting on the beach and listening to the waves. I love living and being near the water. I like to read books and currently writing my own book. I love to meet new people. I mostly enjoy the quality time with my friends and family. I am adventurous and enjoy learning and trying new activities. When I have the time, I also love to travel. I have a Paso Fino horse, Quatro, which I enjoy riding when I am home.

I started my business, Snake Island Properties, in November 2009. I have enjoyed the hard work and learning process of all the details to a business. I like challenges and prospering in all that I do everyday.

In April 2014, I established a new business called Reve Calme, where I produce aromatherapy products such as pillow sprays and bath salts. I originally started the pillow sprays so I could give my guests who stay at the cabin a lovely gift of pillow sprays upon their arrival! Since April 2014, Reve Calme products are being sold in the USA, UAE and Southeast Asia.

Tammy Leemon purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Tammy Leemon chose Door County

My family and I have been vacationing in this area for over 20+ years, enjoying the winter/summer fishing seasons each year on the Bay of Green Bay (Sand Bay) and camping at Jellystone Park, which is nearby. My family built a home in this neighborhood 10 years ago and have been permanent residents in the last 2 years. My parents have been suggesting for many years that I acquire property in their beautiful and quiet neighborhood in Door County, especially waterfront property, as it is only on rare occasions that this kind of property is 'For Sale' in the neighborhood. So when this property was listed 'For Sale' my parents suggested I consider this home. Since I am living half way across the world, I was able to see the pictures and take the recommendations from my parents. At first glance of the pictures, I knew that this was the ideal home, a quaint log cabin, where others could enjoy while on vacation. Plus, this was a perfect investment for my recently established business. As this has been one of my goals in life to have my own business where I can accommodate others and allow my guests to take pleasure in what I am offering; while always striving to do better!

What makes this cabin unique

Enjoy all four seasons at Moonlight Magic. The Door County area has year-round activites for all visitors of any interest. Moonlight Magic has the beautiful waterfront view and is located so close to the water, that the only sounds you will hear are of the waves hitting the shoreline. Since it is located on a point, you will find the local wildlife who make their home in the woods. The area is filled with birch trees and pine trees. Enjoy the 3 sand beaches which are within walking distance to Moonlight Magic. Take a walk or bike around the tree-lined loop and smell the nature of the trees and flowers in the morning (I find the morning is the best time to experience the natural surroundings of the area, as your 5 senses will be over-whelmed). You will notice the friendliness of the locals who will wave and greet you as you pass by. There is a fire pit for night-time enjoyment, as it is located near the water's edge, so you can enjoy the fire and listen to the waves at one sitting. Inside Moonlight Magic, we are continuing to acquire many books for the library, so you can enjoy some reading time. We have provided luxury bedding, bath towels, and bath soaps/lotions as an added pleasure. Moonlight Magic is complete with all new furnishings and electronics; including a flat screen tv, DVD, satellite TV and wireless internet. I have fully enjoyed selecting the interior furnishings for Moonlight Magic, as I selected all the furnishings as if I were a guest looking for comfort, excellent quality, and convenience. I have some decorations, such as the window treatments, which I had specially made in Abu Dhabi, UAE and carried half way across the world to Moonlight Magic. You will find other treasures, which I brought back with me, from my travels around the world, which are placed in Moonlight Magic. My main priority at Moonlight Magic is to make my guests feel special and have memories which will last a lifetime.

Cozy, charming, breathtaking views!

  • 5 of 5

Adorable, cozy cabin with a breathtaking view! Fully stocked with everything you may need! Deer and other wildlife roaming free! Charming! Memories made here!

Would be even better with a few mirrors added for getting ready in the bedrooms (only one bath), and a bit later checkout time.

Just far enough away

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this place. It's just far enough away from all the tourist funneling into door county but within 45 minutes from everything. The cabin was cozy but more than enough room for my wife and I. The decor was awesome and had all the little things you would want. The WiFi was reliable and had all the comforts of home. The views were spectacular. Although there were plenty of adjoining property's, I think we saw two people the whole time we were at or near the cabin. I would definitely come back.

Very inviting

  • 4 of 5

The house offered many unique amenities. We were comfortable as a group in and out side the home. The farm table was the best. We ate together comfortable and played games in the evening as a comfy group. It was peaceful and the wildlife was a joy to watch.

Peaceful Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This place is perfect. We really enjoyed our stay at Moonlight Magic. Location is very nice because it's set back off the road a bit making it more secluded than most homes on Sand Bay. The cabin itself is clean and cute and I really enjoyed Tammy's personal and thoughtful touches. The beds are very comfortable and the place smells amazing! We were traveling with our kids ages 5 and 7 and they just loved this cabin. We took long family bike rides (bikes provided), had fun bonfires at night, I brought an inflatable raft and the kids loved playing in that off the dock. We saw all types of wildlife, there is even a deer that comes to visit every morning and night. And the sunrise over the lake, just breathtaking. I'm very happy that I chose this property.

Private, comfortable, and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

Tammy was accommodating and very responsive from the beginning. The house is in an unbeatable spot just feet from the lake. A quick walk to the western point of the street leads you to a great sunset viewing shore. Our large group of friends slept comfortably. There's only one bathroom for a large group but this was not an issue as we were out and about during the day. We loved having the fire pit overlooking the water! Grill was great though no charcoal was provided (good to know for future visitors). Would love to come back during a warmer time of the year so we can kayak on the lake.

Great winter weekend by the fireplace

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I came up for a visit to Door County for her birthday during a cold winter weekend and had a wonderful time! The property is beautiful and the place was perfect to hang out by the fireplace on a couple single digit temperature days. There were loads and loads of books and I found myself lost in a couple issues of National Geographic from the early 90s. Great spot to hang out as a quiet, off the beaten path location. But also close enough to the other sites in Door County that it's not too much of a drive to get to the popular spots (check out Door County Brewing Company in Baileys Harbor!!!).

Tammy was a great host and responded promptly whenever we reached out. She also has put a lot of thought into decorating, and we really enjoyed looking at all the trinkets she's collected in her travels. Definitely moved Abu Dhabi and Dubai higher on our travel list!

We're looking forward to coming back in the summertime, since we'd love to take advantage of some sunsets from the patio. Although watching it set over the frozen bay from the large living room window was pretty special too.
