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. 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.

"On the Rocks" is the quintessential waterfront cottage. Comfortably sleeps eight with two downstairs bedrooms (one of which has a twin-over-full bunk; the other a queen), one upstairs king bedroom and another with two twins. 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.

Great Quiet Location

  • 5 of 5

We spent the weekend in October for a lovely fall couples weekend. The place had more than enough room for the 8 of us and we really enjoyed the quiet location. The shared fire pit on the dock was pretty cool. We will definitely be back!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Gills Rock was everything we expected as the photos online gave accurate views of each room. We absolutely fell in love with the sunroom and back decks and their gorgeous view. We had a large group that included two young children, this home met all of our needs. It is decorated nicely, has adequate seating, the kitchen appliances and dishes are well stocked, and it has a very sweet older home charm.

Door County was absolutely beautiful mid September. We were able to enjoy so many of the state and county parks, restaurants, and shopping with little to no wait. It was a wonderful vacation. Sad it is over so soon.
