Located at the end of a private road in Southern Door County, this home offers the privacy, peace & tranquility that are the perfect alternative to todays hectic lifestyle. Our three bedroom, two bath private home nestled in the woods on the shore of Lake Michigan offers amazing views of the lake, sky & nature. Every window looks out to the water and/or woods.
Enjoy a cocktail at the fire pit on a moon & starlit evening over the lake. Fall asleep to the waves of Lake Michigan lapping on the shore. The early risers can enjoy the magnificent sunrises whether they are just turning over in bed or up making early morning coffee.
Pass your day relaxing on the screened porch, sleeping in the lakeside hammock, enjoying the hot tub overlooking Lake Michigan, or sitting at the end of a rare 40 foot dock watching for the lake freighters to pass by a few miles off shore.
Looking for more action? Door County has it all! After you have enjoyed swimming or fishing off the dock, playing yard games and watching the kids enjoy the 'tree-fort' - travel north up the road for hiking, boating, restaurants, golf, wineries, shopping, or famous Door County Fish Boils! And don't forget to visit some of the 5 fabulous state parks in Door County. Or head south a few miles to the Algoma marina for some of the best charter fishing Lake Michigan has to offer.
We know you also want the comforts of home - so that is where renting our private home (versus a rental cottage) really differentiates itself. Yes, the kitchen has it all - stove, refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, disposal, pantry, island, skylight, pots, pans, utensils and bar glasses. It also has a table in a bay window with one of the best views of Lake Michigan. The master bedroom is on the main floor with a king-sized bed, TV and private entrance to the main floor bath, which has a whirlpool tub and separate shower. The two upstairs bedrooms are large and hold a king size bed and a queen size bed plus a crib. Each room is spacious and has plenty of room for additional air mattresses. The same is true for the lower level living space. The living room has a wood burning fireplace, TV, DVD along with a selection of movies for the whole family to enjoy. There is a finished lower level living space with TV, video games, game tables and board games to enjoy day or night.
BBQ on the Weber gas grill then enjoy your meal either at the outdoor fire pit table, screened porch, or the beautiful dining room table. All with great views spanning Lake Michigan!
We promise you will be as relaxed or busy as you would like during your stay. You will never want to leave.
Please allow us to welcome you and your family to our little piece of paradise!

This house was the most comfortable house that we have ever stayed in. It was very clean, the yard was gorgeous and the fire pit area was very inviting. Loved everything about this place. Regretfully we did not have time to use the hot tub. We went Salmon fishing two nights of our stay in Algoma.The kids had fun with all the yard games. A fun place to go is Washington Island and go geocaching. The owners were very accommodating.
I would definitely recommend this to families looking to have a great relaxing vacation. We hope to make this a yearly place to come back to.
This house went well beyond our expectations. It was perfect for a girls weekend retreat to get away and enjoy the lake. The views of the lake are amazing and can be seen from almost every room in the house. It provided so many options for things to do, we didn't get to everything! I would definitely recommend to a friend and families looking to get away!
Beautiful home with lovely screened in porch that has a wonderful view of Lake Michigan. Great view and very relaxing with comfortable seating on this porch. Peaceful location at the end of the road and lots of games and toys for the kids. Bikes available for use and water toys, too. We ALL enjoyed the Air Hockey table. And it was wonderful to sit around the fire pit in the evenings. We were very pleased with the supplies available, even fire wood. the kitchen was great for feeding a group. It has an island to set out dishes and everyone could just take what they wanted. Plenty of seating including the high stools at the island. All the bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. Plenty of linens. There was even a crib available. We found this location great for traveling to other sights we wanted to see. Only one of us got cell phone reception, though. I would definitely recommend this home for a vacation. We all had a wonderful time. And I appreciated the courtesy shown by the owners. They were very helpful every time I had a question.
We very much enjoyed our stay at this beautiful, well maintained, and well equipped property. You can't ask for more.
Thank you Bob and Mary for sharing your home with us and being so responsive to all of our questions beforehand. We had 3 couples from MN and IL get together for a long weekend in Green Bay and Door County and your home allowed us to relax and spend quality time together. Everyone commented on how comfortable the house is and how relaxing the view/atmosphere are as well. We all live in metropolitan areas and it was great to get away and relax. The house provided plenty of room for 6 adults and we really appreciated all of the special touches, such as the spices and coffee available, the grill, the soft towels and comfy beds, the hot tub and the list goes on! Thanks again for your hospitality and we hope to be back.
We rented this house for a family get away with myself, my husband, our 16-month old, and "the grandparents". This vacation home was everything we could have hoped for and more! It was cozy while still having plenty of space for people to get "away" when they needed to. We had a troupe of pelicans that floated by most nights at sunset. We cooked most meals at the house and the kitchen left nothing to be desired. The house was in a good location to make day trips around door county and felt completely secluded at the same time. For those with very small children, you will need to be on high alert - there are things like an exposed brick wall, lots of floor textures, and a raised hearth fireplace that can make the house a bit of a danger zone for toddlers that are still getting their feet under them. Definitely not a huge deal or deal breaker and probably no more of a consideration than for this property than any home that isn't home.
We had a fantastic week that left us all with great memories and a desire to plan our next trip!
