Overview

Sturgeon Bay Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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).

No Smoking & No Pets, Please.

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.

Great house close to the water!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Hidden Glidden is Cozy and Relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent 3 days at Hidden Glidden cottage and had a great time. It is conveniently located near Whitefish Dunes State Park, which has an excellent beach. The amenities were numerous, and the cottage has a nice layout with multiple options for enjoying relaxation time. We loved being in Door County and not overcome by tourists!

Very nice cottage in an excellent location. Clean and well cared-for.

  • 5 of 5

Although the weather didn't cooperate with our vacation at Hidden Glidden Cottage, we enjoyed our stay. The communication, directions and instructions were accurate and easy and showed extra care by The Forrest's to make sure that our stay got off on the right foot. The cottage offered modern amenities such as easy-to-access Wi-Fi and satellite television.

If the weather had been better we would have enjoyed the deck area and perhaps a bon-fire. There is a lot of deck furniture surrounding the cabin and a nice fire pit. We shared our morning coffee with a deer browsing mere feet from the picture window in the Great Room. We found the bed to be very comfortable and the setting quiet and relaxing. We met a few of the neighbors while enjoying the beach and they were very friendly. We ended up cutting our stay in half due to the rainy weather, but we did enjoy our stay and will definitely consider staying there again.

Very nice cottage for a relaxed stay in Door County

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is really hidden, it cant be seen from the street (and consequently only nature view from any place of the cottage). Grill, fireplace bikes and kayak available. Good communication with the owner before and during our stay. We would have given 5 stars, but the quality of the potable water was not as expected. The hot water contains high amounts of iron, maybe from the water heater. It really smells "iron" and does not taste very good. Despite this little issue we had a very nice stay and enjoyed our vacation at the Hidden Glidden Cottage.

Overall impression very cute and cozy

  • 4 of 5

Our overall experience was awesome we would definitely come back if you would have us.

Very cute and cozy. Would've liked to enjoy the beach but it smelled really bad because of the dead animal. Excess was down the road but easy to get to.

Would recommend:

Maybe some solar lights in fire pit area it gets pretty dark over there. Or even a light you can turn off and on when not in use.

Maybe the caretakers could knock down some of the spiderwebs that was kind of creepy.

Chimenea On back patio would be awesome.

Ok .....done being picky.... Can't help it we are city girls...

But if you ever wanted a great place to go this would be it very nice it was a pleasure doing business with you guys would definitely come back.

relaxing and convenient stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I wanted to make a quick trip up to Door County, and we decided upon Hidden Glidden. We are so happy with that decision! We felt welcomed immediately with a lot of great information and amenities provided for us. We especially enjoyed relaxing on the screened-in porch off the side of the kitchen. We really appreciated how secluded the cottage felt, even though we were only a short drive away from downtown Sturgeon Bay. We couldn't be happier with our stay at Hidden Glidden, and we wouldn't count out visiting again.
