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.

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
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.
We enjoy the very homey feeling that our property has. It is a very comfortable home with many places for relaxation.
There were six of us that stayed in the cottage for the weekend and we had a great time. It was clean and quaint. There was adequate seating indoors and outdoors and the kitchen was stocked with essential for cooking. We enjoyed the outdoor space to build a campfire every night (bring your own wood). We also felt very welcomed by receive a bottle of wine and coffee for our enjoyment. Free wifi and cable was also a plus!
The one negative of the outdoor campfire area was that we noticed an unpleasant odor outside. We didn't notice it the first night so it might have been a one time issue or smell from another house.
Overall it was a good size to accommodate 6 adults for two nights. We had a pleasant stay and I would recommend this to a friend!
We had a great stay at the Hidden Glidden. Probably the most furnished kitchen that we have stayed at - also very well decorated, which makes you feel right at home! It was nice not being directly on the beach as it was super windy both nights. Thanks for keeping up a great getaway!
We really enjoyed the Glidden Cabin. Very cute home. Loved the quiet setting and walking distance to the beach. Granddaughter loved it:) The owners are very nice and generous with their property. Well stocked kitchen. The place was clean except the fans were dusty. Had to clean them to use them. The window crank on the bedroom window came off, had to fix it. The handle on the toilet came loose, had to fix that. The back of stool seems loose...needs to be adjusted. We did not fix it. Felt like home:)
Overall I would definitely go there again or recommend to friends and family:)
This was a darling little cottage nestled in the woods. Loved the little screened in porch and bonfire area.The house was very clean, linens and towels were provided. They had basic utensils, pots, dish soap there for use. No dishwasher though. The beds were nicely made and the bathrooms were very clean- make sure to bring your own body wash and shampoo. There is a path off the driveway where you can take a walk in the woods. (Make sure to keep track of where you are going to get back) It is a very quite street and the house is not close to others. With that being said it takes some time to get to other places. It took about a half an hour to get to places like Egg Harbor or Fish Creek. We didn't do much in Sturgeon Bay so I'm not sure about that town. If you're looking for a cozy, quite retreat this is a lovely place!
My new husband and I were very pleased with our stay at this beautiful cottage, tucked away in the woods! Relaxation is the one thing we were looking for and it met all our needs!!
The house was perfect! There was plenty of space, without feeling cramped like some vacation rentals. The kitchen was supplied with everything we could have needed. The bedrooms were comfy and cozy. We loved enjoying breakfast and morning coffee in the screened in porch. Wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy the fire pit, use the kayak, or cozy up to the wood burning fireplace! I would definitely come back here for my next trip to Door County!
