Why Susie chose Door County

After many years of traveling to door county, it was time to create our own haven in the peninsula. It is a place of respite and nurture, health and creativity. Door County enhances all your senses and you leave each time with a renewed spirit, anticipating your next visit! We love our location with easy access to the beach in the summer, hiking and biking all year, easy driving distance to cross country skiing, snowmobiling and great shopping!

What makes this cottage unique

Egg Harbor beach on beautiful Green Bay has been newly renovated with amenities such as a picnic shelter, grills, bath house and kayak rentals and is a short walk. A path near the beach runs to downtown Egg Harbor and the Marina. Egg Harbor offers fantastic shopping, restaurants, and easy access to activities for all ages.

Fantastic home

  • 5 of 5

We spent the weekend in Door County with our parents and couldn't have been happier with the accomodations. The home is beautiful and clean and was conveniently located to all we wanted to see and do in the area. The owners were nice and very helpful with suggestions for the area. We would highly recommend this home and hope to come again!

Outstanding Comfort and Convenience

  • 5 of 5

Trillium Gap Cottage is a wonderful, private and comfortable retreat. My wife and I, a sister and her spouse spent a fabulous week there in June while touring Door County. The cottage is cozy yet spacious, wonderfully appointed and very conveniently located a stone's throw from Egg Harbor. Read the other reviews if you need details, but as one who has traveled almost exclusively via VRBO for the past 20 years, and stayed in some remarkable properties, this is one of the best. If we return to Door County, and we hope to, we will plan our trip around the availability of Trillium Gap Cottage.

So Glad We Didn’t Miss This One!

  • 5 of 5

We vacation in Door County annually with our adult children and grandchildren. We stay for a week and often try new places but have to say we had yet to stay in Egg Harbor before this year. Trillium Gap Cottage is a real find – close to the beach and about a 10 minute walk into town (great path along the woods). The cottage is modern, well appointed, very comfortable and private but yet close to everything you could want from restaurants, beaches to shopping & a great fun Park. The property is lined with trees and very peaceful - we watched deer come through on a few occasions. It's also very versatile and works for families or couples. There’s a loft which is a perfect spot for teens or younger children looking for their own little space. The outdoor living space is great - huge deck and a fire pit for bonfires. It’s one of those properties we would definitely re-book.

Great place to stay in door county!

  • 5 of 5

2 couples stayed here for one week. The rental is beautiful and exactly as pictured. The beds were comfortable. The kitchen is stocked with all the dishes. utensils. glasses, cups and all cooking pots and pans. The location is great. We could walk to the beach and town. The fire pit was nice at night. And morning coffee on the deck was also very relaxing. This is one of the nicest VRBO I have rented and I would not hesitate to rent it again or recommend it to friends.

Memorable and wonderful holiday get-away for our family

  • 5 of 5

We're so glad we found Trillium Gap cottage and have high hopes of making this a regular destination for our family. While we've stayed in various rental properties in different locations around the U.S. over many years, this stands out as one of the most comfortable, well-equipped and high quality properties we've ever found. It was the perfect space for our family of six, and though we spent the majority of the time gathered in front of warm, cozy, wood-burning fireplace (a generous stock of fresh firewood and starter logs were provided) playing games and watching movies, we were still able to spread out when we wanted and enjoyed the spacious layout. The kitchen was especially notable - a beautifully designed space in which to cook. We prepared a few big meals and made use of nearly all the pots, pans, appliances and even an original "Joy of Cooking" cookbook! The many extras provided throughout the cottage - movies, books, music CDs, games, binoculars, pillows & blankets - were much appreciated. We made good use of all of them. The property itself is beautiful we were fortunate to experience a snowfall which made the woods and creek outside that much more scenic. The location of the cottage just outside Egg Harbor was also a bonus as we spent time in various surrounding towns and enjoyed restaurants in Sister Bay, Fish Creek and Ephraim. We're grateful we found Trillium Gap Cottage and thank the owners for sharing such a special place!

A Gem in Door County

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the good fortune of staying at Trillium Gap Cottage early September. We were in Door County for a wedding at The Alpine Resort where rooms were offered for the guests. We chose to stay at this property because we were traveling with a large group which included myself, my husband, daughter, son-in- law, another daughter and my brother. We were absolutely thrilled with our accommodations. Not only is the cottage wonderful but it is located in the perfect spot. We genuinely felt as if we were tucked away in the woods but we were within walking distance from a grocery store, church, shopping, restaurants, ice cream, walking paths, a park, the beachfront, and the harbor. We had plenty of sleeping space for all and no one felt crowded. The cottage had everything we needed for cooking meals and leisure time. we sat on the deck in the mornings and played games at the large kitchen table in the evenings. I was very happy with the bathrooms as well as the laundry room. The owner was a very pleasant person and I enjoyed talking with her and she was most gracious when I called to tell her that I left a drawer full of clothing behind by accident. She packed it up and sent it out to me in a very short time, I was really grateful. Thank you to Trillium Gap and it's owners for making our stay so special. We are so glad to have found you.
