From there, guests can put their luggage on the service elevator that will take you to the main floor and the bedrooms on the top floor. Everthing you could ever dream of for a purely luxurious stay. Solid cherry floors, raised ceilings, surround sound stereo & french furnishings make this a rare experience for a Door County traveler.Two fireplaces, a sun room, a luxury kitchen, spacious marble granite bars, several wet bars, two veranda's with french iron furniture and great privacy.

Wake up, put on your robes and drink espresso on your private balcony overlooking the cliffs. The other guest rooms have lake views and overlook the town which is a two minute excursion over grassy fields to Founders Square shopping and all of the restaurants in town. A supremely large game room with a giant flat screen tv, cable, and wi fi. We supply all of the best kitchen equipment, restaurant ware plates & silverware. Egyptian cotton towels, high thread count sheets and down comforters on every bed including the two bunk beds on the main floor. A little taste of France in the middle of Door County.

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our group. We had six ladies. The 4 bedrooms and 4 1/2 baths gave us all lots of space. The kitchen was a cooks dream. We spent a lot of our time at the big dining room table. Each morning we had our coffee in the sun room with the fireplace. So lovely! The location was perfect too. We were able to walk to shopping and dining in Fish Creek. We would love to come back and stay again in the future. I would highly recommend this property.

Beautiful property in a great location but needs a little more attention to detail.

  • 4 of 5

This property is so lovely and spacious and it couldn't be in a better location. The kitchen and dining room were especially great gathering areas and the elevator was a major plus to several of us with mobility issues. It was spotlessly clean. That said, there were several small issues. The furnishings in the livingroom were not what was pictured but an ugly, beat-up sectional and chair. There were 8 of us and only seating for 4 so we had to carry in chairs from other areas in order for all of us to be together. Another couch and/or more chairs would be nice. There's certainly room for them. There were no kitchen towels or hotpads and no washclothes in 2 of the 4 bathrooms. There was one hairdryer to pass between 4 bedrooms. The tv in the master bedroom was missing a cable remote and there were lightbulbs out around the house. Still, this property was so lovely that we would definitely be back. A little more attention to detail would make it amazing.

Owner's Response: We love that you enjoyed our property so much and want to return. We do consider ourselves a luxury residence and much attention was paid to detail including down comforters, not synthetic as well as a linen service and antique carpets and rugs , nothing like you would see in a common rental. At the end of season many things do get taken on accident or moved and so we regret you did not see hot pads in the kitchen. Our living room sofas were replaced & you are right I don't like them either! Thanks for your comment - we agree and are on process to move them out and do something more conducive to the size of that room. We appreciated your comments and feedback and look forward to seeing you again.- cliff cottage

Beautiful home.

  • 5 of 5

The home was lovely and extremely accommodating for a large group. There was wonderful space to share meals, play games, and enjoy time together. There was also enough room to have alone time. Loved our time there.

About Ms.J. Elizabeth Ciesar

Our family has owned a home here since the 60s. We are from Chicago but have always enjoyed Door County as our weekend or summer special getaway. We have many great memories here and we feel we wish to help you create those memories with your family as well. We have an insider secrets list of our most treasured things to do in Fish Creek and a copy of that is waiting for you when you arrive at Cliff Cottage. This is a very special and sacred place for us and we invite you to share our home with your family which was decorated and designed to the very exquisite and formidable tastes of our father, John. He was an entrepreneur and loved coming to Door County to be with his family in this quiet relaxing setting away from the hustle & bustle of Chicago.

Ms.J. Elizabeth Ciesar purchased this townhome in 2005

What makes this townhome unique

You will be staying only a minute walk from most restaurants, bars, beaches or the marina yet you are located on a private road off Cottage Row with million year old limestone cliffs which gives off a far away secluded feeling that you dream of being here away from the noise of cars. It is a place to hear the pat of fox paws in the snow or bald eagles soaring overhead. The sound of rain is powerful when that is all that you hear. After living in a city for a while..the sound of rain or thunder by itself with no other otherwordly.

Car: recommended

Located at the edge of the historic and scenic lakefront at Cottage Row, we are steps away from quaint restaurants, the marina, and the main st. in town. The beach is a few minutes away by car, and the park has bicycles for rent and paths that go to famous Door County beaches in the park like Nicolet. You can get away from it all, without losing touch with the necessities you need including grocery stores, plentiful shopping district, boat rentals, canoe and more! A medical clinic is 5 minutes away by car.Open on the weekdays. The Hospital is 20 minutes south in Sturgeon Bay.We also have a YMCA two minutes away by car which offers daycare from 8-11 for patrons.The must do's include breakfast at the White Gull Inn which is world famous, Fish Boils at Pelletiers in the evening (summer only), & you can see the boilovers from the deck of the condo while having cocktails on the veranda at sunset. Biking through the park is thrilling and fun for the whole family. The trails are endless and close to beaches for a quick dip. Live theatre such as Shakespeare in the Park or our famous Birch Creek for steel drums and jazz that will fill your evening with a little soul, a plethora of fine art galleries and custom sculpture can be found around Fish Creek and beyond, and don't miss the classic Sunset Beach sunsets....where people a hundred years ago strolled as well to sit in the stone benches and see the marvelous sunsets. Other favorite beaches include Sister Bay Beach (kids can dive off pier into water a favorite teen hangout), Egg Harbor Beach (My favorite is only 10 minutes south by car, it gets crowded but the swimming is divine there and kids play in rich sand), Fish Creek is nice to sunbathe but swimming is good for kiddies, not for adults...(unless you like seaweed). Sunset Beach is rocky and perfect for a romantic night walk. Of course, the best beach is on Chambers Island if you have a large enough boat to get there. You cannot get their via kayak. But Nicolet Beach in the Park is perfect for kayaks and water sports of every kind. Have fun!
