About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

ONLY 3.5 HOURS FROM THE NORTHERN SUBURBS OF CHICAGO!! Sturgeon Bay is as much as an hour closer and more convenient than many other Door County towns. In fact, from 94/294 all the way to Sturgeon Bay is now all (at least) four-lane highway.

Imagine yourself in this clean and upscale cottage in the woods across the street from Lake Michigan's beaches.................

Hidden Glidden Cottage is a charming and clean and cozy two-bedroom, two bathroom cottage romantically hidden behind a sand dune on scenic Glidden Drive, east of Sturgeon Bay in beautiful Door County, Wisconsin! Glidden Drive meanders peacefully along the Lake Michigan shore. The house is nestled in the woods across the street from the lake and you have beach access rights to a wonderful sandy beach only 250 steps up the road.

You will find that the private, picturesque location boasts decks on all sides of the house, as well as a peaceful screened porch. Since this is our family vacation home, you will find it equipped with all of the niceties and conveniences we like to find when we arrive. In the kitchen you have a microwave oven, full-size oven/stove, full-size refrigerator, disposal, toaster, blender, coffee maker & grinder, small food grinder, pots & pans, glasses, plates, bowls, cups, cutlery, etc. In the main bedroom you have a pillow-top queen-size bed, attached, newly remodeled full bath with marble-topped vanity, a Toto toilet and a bathtub, and a television hooked up to cable. The second bedroom features a queen-size bed, a television with cable and small, secluded and private outdoor deck with a porch swing. Both beds are furnished with upscale linens for your comfort. The guest bath features a cheerful sunflower motif and a walk-in shower. The bedrooms have Berber carpet. The great room has Hickory hard-wood floors.

The kitchen is conveniently located in a corner of the great room, which also includes a dining area with a rustic table for six as well as a lounging area in front of a large, wood-burning, fieldstone fireplace. There is a CD/Cassette stereo as well as a television hooked up to cable and DVD/VCR combination. We have also included a small selection of movies, games and books for your enjoyment. The sofa in the great room is a queen-size sleeper with a memory foam mattress. Off to the north of the great room, through French doors, is the peaceful screened porch, which is furnished with comfortable white wicker furniture. Through the wall of windows to the east of the great room is a large deck with adirondak lounging furniture and dining chairs and a table, as well as a gas grill--perfect for outdoor dining and also for curling up in the sun or shade (depending on time of day) with a good book! Nature lovers will adore the view, and there are three bird feeders near the deck, as well as a bird bath. Bird seed can be found in the garage.

For your convenience, there are a full-size washing machine and dryer in the closet adjacent to the entry hall. There are beach towels in the linen closet, and the garage is equipped with beach chairs and toys, tennis racquets, an ocean kayak, a basketball and a couple of children's bicycles.

The rental fee includes all listed conveniences, normal cleaning (no dishes or pots left in the sink), washing of used linens and towels (one set per person staying), local and long distance telephone service and WiFi. We request a Damage/Breakage Deposit, which will be returned to you after the house has been turned over in good condition and we have received the keys back in the mail (if applicable).

About Kevin Forrest

My wife and I and our two young adult daughters live in the northern suburbs of Chicago. We would love to have you and your family as our guests in our home away from home.

Kevin Forrest purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Kevin Forrest chose Door County

My family and I have traveled to Door County since I was a child. My wife and daughters so loved spending time at my parents' home down the road, that we all decided that we wanted to own our very own slice of paradise.

What makes this cottage unique

We enjoy the very homey feeling that our property has. It is a very comfortable home with many places for relaxation.

Peaceful getaway

  • 4 of 5

We loved the cottage and it's location. It was very peaceful and quite. It was comfortable and nicely decorated. We were unable to get the televisions to work, there were many remote controls, but it certainly didn't hurt for us to go without for a couple of days. You may want to take some bottle water for drinking, the water has a lot of iron in it. Nice welcome gifts also, a local wine and Door County coffee.

Quiet, rustic location to get away from it all

  • 4 of 5

The home was small but adequate for our family of two adults and two children. It's located on Glidden Drive, which runs parallel to Lake Michigan. The home is located across the street from the lake and access is a quick walk down Glidden Drive. With young children and/or lots of gear, you may need to drive but there are a couple of parking spots at the access point. The property is ~6 miles from Whitefish Dunes State Park, which has an amazing beach, and nice hiking trails. It is about 30 minutes from the more touristy parts of the peninsula. If you prefer a quieter, more subdues DC experience, this is a good place. If you want to be in the thick of it, it's a bit of a drive. Overall, the property had a rustic quality with a wooded yard and many outdoor relaxation spaces. The furnishings and space was as described and the indoor spaces are very clean. The window screens could use a good cleaning due to bugs and cobwebs but that is part of the rustic charm. The owners provide plenty of basic supplies and cooking utensils, only asking you to replace what you use. My only real complaint was the water quality. The water had a very strong sulfur/iron smell. We bought bottled water and took quick showers. Par for the course when dealing with well water, I am afraid.

Perfect size

It was the perfect size for the five of us. I can only complain about the mosquitoes which no one can control. 😁

LOVELY

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this cottage was perfect. Super clean and very inviting. Grandbabies (ages 7 and 6) really enjoyed boogie boards! Had not been to Door County in over 30 years so got to relive happy memories with my daughter and make new ones. Thank you for your hospitality and the bottle of wine !
