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.

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.

Fall Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

For the last three years, my family and I have stayed in the Trillium Gap Cottage during the last week of October. It is truly one of the most beautiful times to be in Door County. We love that the cottage provides all the comforts of home, but with a far better view. The cottage is secluded in the woods with lots of large windows so you can admire the outdoors. My husband and I really enjoy waking up in the morning, drinking a cup of coffee, and looking out into the beautiful wooded landscape of the cottage. The view is absolutely breath-taking. My two young boys love to play in the leaves in the yard and "explore" the surrounding area. The cottage is within walking distance of town and very close to some of the best attractions in Door County. We love taking our boys to the Plum Loco farm and mini golfing down the street. The cottage has a beautiful outdoor fire pit that where we spend our evenings grilling and roasting marshmallows. It is a trip my family looks forward to every year! We love this cottage!

What a pleasure!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place to stay! It has been a wonderful week in Door County and the fall colors were at their best! The home is nestled in the woods, peaceful, quiet and still at walking distance to town and beach. We loved the well equipped kitchen with the large island. Everything was super clean, the owners make you feel welcome and provide everything for a truly pleasant stay! Loveliest home we have ever rented!

Family get-together

  • 5 of 5

What an absolutely gorgeous home for an extended family get-together! Our family found that this Door County location was perfect for an Illinois-Wisconsin rendezvous. The house is conveniently located within walking distance to the beach and the quaint shops of Egg Harbor. The décor is stunningly beautiful yet comfortable in this beautiful "cottage". The pictures can't do justice to the surroundings of a cottage nestled in the woods. We loved the easy access to the main road which led to all the fantastic Door County communities. The owners were wonderful and their thoughtful touches were evident throughout the house and property. The house was extremely clean and the beds were comfortable. My 15 year old son loved the bed located in the loft and was perfect for him! We loved the kitchen and dining room area where many gatherings took place throughout the day, as well as at night for rousing games of L-R-C! The owners have plenty of games for guests to use if you forget to bring your own. Susie and Rick have thought of everything that guests might need and provided a pleasant worry-free vacation for us! Thank you!

Great Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from a lovely stay at the trillium gap cottage. We've been to Door County many times since our family gathers here for a family reunion. The family had accomodations at four places in Egg Harbor, but ours was clearly the winner! We loved sitting on the deck and around the fire pit in the evenings and there was always a game of Sequence in progress. When it was our turn to host, the well equipped and well designed kitchen made cooking and serving dinner very manageable. How I would love to take that kitchen home with me! We liked the secluded nature of the cottage and yet the beach and shops in Egg Harbor were an easy walk.

We did a wine tasting at the Door County Winery and had an excellent lunch at their Bistro 42. And this year we rented mopeds at Peninsula State Park in Fish Creek. The park is so beautiful that we stayed there and rode the many trails, following our ride with frozen custard at Not Licked Yet. It has become a tradition to have lunch at the Cookery in Fish Creek which has very good fish chowder. And since most of us like smoked whitefish, we had to make a trip up to Gill's Rock to Charlie's Smokehouse. It was a great addition to our appetizer board for dinner. There's lots to do and see on the peninsula, but what we enjoy the most is spending time together in the evenings. And the cottage was just the perfect place for that.

Susie made the rental process flawless and provided lots of great recommendations on restaurants, things to see and do. We really appreciated her willingness to help us make the most of our stay. We hope to come back and definitely recommend it for your Door vacation.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for sharing your experiences in Door County and for providing such a nice review. It helps new travelers with great ideas for fun! Love that you rented mopeds. We just saw a group in Egg Harbor on Segways and can't wait to try them! Such a great idea to head to the smokehouse in Gills Rock. A great drive and a wonderful Door County delicacy... after the wine and cherries of course! I'm so pleased you liked our kitchen. It is better than our home, so we like to cook there too! Enjoy the rest of summer and come again!
