The property is located only two minutes walking distance from a marina.The newly renovated house has an attached roomy three car garage on the main floor of the home (shared with another unit) with an easy access to the unit.

The updated kitchen has gorgeous granite counter tops, new appliances and classy cherry colored cabinetry. The modern looking spacious easy access tiled bathroom on the main floor also includes laundry and a sauna.

The old beams of bedroom/loft offer this private room a lot of charm in addition to additional beautiful views of the lake.

Spectacular view and location

  • 5 of 5

Best of the best Close to Door Co attractions, but pure Heaven right in your backyard. The views were incredible and sunset from the hot tub will be memorable. Owner treats you like friends of the family. Unit was spotless and well maintained/stocked.

Only negative - and it's minor - the skylight in the loft brightens your day around 4:45 AM and by 5 there is no darkness. Light sleepers would bring a mask...

Best Door Country vacation ever.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I didn't want to leave. We just loved the peace and quiet that this place offered. The water front setting was perfect. The cottage is very nice and so are the owners. When our dog injured himself, Dan was able to immeadly recommend a very capable vet when I called him. This is a place we want to return to.

Absolutely gorgeous, quiet and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Our family made some wonderful memories in this gorgeous house. I loved that this was a little away from the tourism craziness but only a 10-15 minute drive back to Sister Bay. We loved to get in the hot tub every night and watch the sun set. The kids enjoyed swimming in the bay as well as boating around a little. I even took a nap in the hammock. This was more than we could have asked for and I'm afraid to tell anyone about it! I'd like it to be my little known secret. Thanks for a great time!

Amazing waterfront home!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this beautifully appointed home was nothing less than perfect!!! The location is unbeatable...a short drive away from all that Door County has to offer (Ellison Bay, Sister Bay, Fish Creek and Ephraim are not too far away). Nothing beats the outstanding sunsets that you can enjoy sitting out on the patio. The hot tub (just feet away from the water) is amazing! The owner was friendly and went out of his way to make our stay comfortable. It was hard to leave after our 4-night stay. We would love to be back again someday! Highly recommend this home to anyone who is looking for a beautifully maintained retreat in Door County! Thanks so much for making our stay memorable!
