About the property

4 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 8

Enjoy stunning sunset views from this bayfront cottage in Gill's Rock on your next Door County getaway. This adorable 1930s bungalow has the charm and character of its original "bones" with the style and convenience of modern updates thanks to a top-to-bottom renovation in 2014. Bright and airy interior rooms plus an expansive sun room, two-level deck and lovely yard area offer the best of indoor and outdoor rest and relaxation. Beautifully appointed with new flooring, paint and furnishings, "On the Rocks" is the quintessential coastal cottage. Comfortably sleeps eight with two downstairs bedrooms (one of which is a twin-over-full bunk; the other queen), one upstairs king bedroom and another with two twins (plus a sleeper sofa in the sun room for that last minute stowaway). Get away from it all while still enjoying the comforts of home, including satellite TV and WiFi, dishwasher, grill and A/C (central down, window units up).

Take in all that northern Door County and Washington Island have to offer…you'll be mere steps from the Bay and charter fishing, a short walk to the Shoreline Restaurant, Charlie's Smokehouse and the Washington Island passenger ferry; or a quick bike trip or drive to Newport State Park, Ellison Bluff Park or Europe Lake.

This home was perfect, peaceful with views of the water. It was comfortable and had everything we needed. We are hoping to come back nest year!

Great Lake Views

  • 5 of 5

Lovely place, great lake views, well appointed, would come back anytime. Only thing I would suggest is possibly a new shower head. Would come back again and hope we do, would recommend to others.

Great location, unforgettable sunsets!

  • 4 of 5

This property is in a great location and very comfortable for a group of 8, some being children. Walking distance to the walking ferry to Washington Island where you can catch a tour of the island. Ferry round trip and tour only $25. Large screen enclosed room on the front was great for breakfast and dinner as a group. Sunsets were spectacular. Nearby coffee shop. 4 stars due to one bath and some occasional sewer smell outside. Great value, would stay there again!

Great accommodations to relax off the beaten path with a fantastic view of Green Bay

  • 5 of 5

The house is as described and works well for a summer getaway. Clean, comfortable, and two deck levels out front to enjoy the water and sunsets! Would recommend this for a stay in the upper end of the Door County peninsula.

Charming cottage with amazing sunset views

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is the perfect place for a family stay or a girls' weekend. Our family of four slept very comfortably and enjoyed the living space. We especially enjoyed eating on the sun porch and spending time on the porch. The sunsets from the porch can't be missed!

Charming home, perfect for our family getaway

  • 4 of 5

We loved spending Memorial Day weekend in this comfortable cottage. The house was so much bigger than expected and was perfect for my adult children and grandkids. Large grassy lawn, double deck to view the sunsets. Kitchen was fully stocked, and the owners were very responsive when I had to contact them over a minor plumbing issue. Easy access to Washington Island, nearby parks and a short drive to the busier parts of Door County.
