Four Season Home 2 Bed 2 bath, cedar sided ranch with great fireplace, full updated kitchen with dishwasher, 3.5 acres, 2 car attached garage, small dunes and 195 feet of Lake Michigan shoreline. Free Wifi too!
The house is located one of the most rustic roads in Door County, South Lake Michigan Drive. It is a 1.5 car wide lane that meanders along the lakeshore for a couple miles, the speed limit along our stretch is 15 mph. Very, very low traffic road, either someone really wants to drive down this road or they have a place here. It is not part of the tourist trail.
The house is 40 feet away from our expansive sand beach, (across the small rustic lane) the total sandy area is approximately 1 acre. The lakeshore is sugar sand and the lake bottom is hard sand, gradual depth, great for kids, and pets too!
It is located at the northern end of a sandy bay that totals just over a mile. At the south end is a rocky point, at the north end is the Sturgeon Bay light house and the Door County Land Trust Preserve, 400+ acres of forest, dunes and walking trails.
Our lakefront is perfect for kayaks, windsurfing, swimming, sailing, SUPing, boogie boarding. Very easy to launch any 'quiet' water activities.
To the rear of the house is about 2 acres of pines, birch and cedars that you can explore. Beyond our land is hundreds of acres of privately owned, but undeveloped land. This area is teeming with wildlife. It is very common to see deer or fox walking down the beach or South Lake Michigan Drive.
The house is an extremely well built ranch, circa 1960. There are two generous sized bedrooms and plenty of closet space. The Bedroom #1 is 16x14, with huge closets, dresser and Queen size bed. The Bedroom #2 is 12x10, with a small dresser, huge closets and two Twin beds. The living room leather couch pulls out to a Queen bed and is very comfortable.
The full kitchen is updated and well equipped to prepare any meals to be served in the separate dining area which seats 6.
The basement is full and unfinished but here you will find a pool table and the second bathroom. In addition, we've added a brand new full-sized washer and dryer.
The attached garage is available for you to use. Back in your fishing boat, keep your bikes dry and easily pack/unpack your car. You will find our Kayak and Stand Up Paddle board in the garage - free for you to use.
Door County, the 'Cape Cod of the Midwest', receives about 2 million visitors every year. Our location is away from the 'tourist trail' however, makes a good home base to easily explore Door County by car.
We are 10 minutes from Sturgeon Bay shops, restaurants and water front. There are many boat launch facilities and many transient options within minutes. Also, we are in the middle of one of the best fisheries in the world. Salmon, small-mouth bass, walleye, perch and even northern - there is always a fishing option within a few minutes by boat.
