About the property

4 Bedrooms, 5.5 Bathrooms, Bunk Area, Sleeps 12

Enjoy all that Door County has to offer! This 6000 square foot log cabin has it all on lovely Glidden DR. We call it ''Roughin it.'' The cabin is cozy and nestled in the woods, with the sounds of Lake Michigan wafting through the windows. The home offers comfortable accommodations, with nearby access to the beach, dining, sightseeing, shopping, golf and more. Three of the four bedrooms have their own bathroom for privacy. The master bedroom suite includes a jacuzzi tub and separate shower area. A large great room, with 25 ft high river rock, woodburning fireplace sets the mood for a relaxing and cozy evening. The finished lower level gives the kids somewhere to hang out, with pool and foosball tables. A large deck and many areas of covered porches are perfect for enjoying that first cup of coffee in the morning.

Take a walk on the drive and duck into a nearby path to Lake Michigan and take in it's many moods. It could be wild and windy or calm and serene. Learn why so many people are hooked on the Door. Oh yeah, and do not forget the cherry pie!

Our family spent the weekend and it was exactly what we would want. Log cabin, the decor, everything was perfect. It was very clean, and well maintained. We went out to eat for our meals, next time, we would for sure stay right there and not leave. We ate at the Log Den and it was very good. Excellent ribs. Would recommend it to anyone. Thank you so much for providing your lovely cabin for others to enjoy.

Relax in style!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated my parent's anniversary at "Roughin It". There were 11 of us and we had room to spare. Main floor master suite worked well for my father who has problems getting around. There was plenty room to have fun all together as a family and yet plenty of areas to all be doing something different at the same time. There was a huge selection of DVD's & games, if the weather keeps you in.

We spent hours hiking the shore of Lake Michigan which is just a short walk away.

My family cooked several large meals & the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed.

We've rented several houses over the years for our large family and this definitely ranks right in the top!

Highly recommend for a large group get together.

Great place to spend a week in Door County!

  • 5 of 5

This home is just beautiful. We had our entire family stay here this summer and it was wonderful. We had all age ranges with us and everyone absolutely loved the home and we all had plenty of room. The house is incredibly clean, spacious, and so well decorated for the "Roughing It" theme. Everything we needed was there. The setting was so relaxing and Glidden Drive is very peaceful. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. I think it would be a great place to stay anytime of year. Thank you for a great vacation!

Incredible Cabin in an Amazing Location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at “Roughin It” at the end of September and it was a perfect time with the leaves changing colors and autumn in the air. The cabin sits on a beautiful piece of property, walking distance from the beach on Lake Michigan, and a tranquil backyard. The cabin itself is quite impressive and the owners did a great job decorating, with each room having a different theme. The owners were very helpful, had great communication throughout the rental process, and gave some good recommendations on restaurants and things to do in the area. Our only regret was not staying here longer. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home!

This is a home away from home. It is beautiful, clean, and filled with many extras not mentioned on the web site. The owners are wonderful, and they will make sure that the home meets or exceeds your expectations. We couldn't have asked for anything better. It was perfect!

Great Time

  • 5 of 5

We all wanted to thank you for the use of your beautiful home this past July 4th weekend, we all had a wonderful time and did not want to leave, but hope to be back soon. We have been coming to Door County for several years, usually in the fall but July is wonderful. Your home has been voted the my children and grandchildren. You thought of everything anyone could need.

Thank you again,

Marge/Elk Grove, Il
