The cottage was perfect for our stay. Our 2 dogs were with us, and the setting was very convenient. Quiet setting and close to Door County amenities.

We loved Outback Cottages! we just returned from a long weekend. very relaxing, and quaint. I was skeptical at first with 3 cottages right next to each other. But there really is quite a bit of privacy and honestly, we didn't physically see the other people staying at the other cottages. We stayed in cottage #3 and it was just perfect for us. We met Pam and Galen. Its clear that take pride in what they do. We did just about everything they recommended. We brought our 3 dogs (yes 3), and really wore them out. They are still sleeping. Whitefish Dunes state park was great! they do have a small doggie beach area. Lots of beautiful hiking trails. Potawtomi State Park was beautiful as well. We had lunch at Kitty O'Reilly's downtown. Great dog friendly outdoor patio. Sunset Grill is a great place to go to as well for dinner, and of course watching the sunset. We would definitely stay here again!!!

Perfect quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I were looking for a quiet getaway over Memorial Day weekend with our dog. The Outback Cottages were just the right fit! We were able to make ourselves right at home as soon as we arrived, with the warm welcome note from Pam and Galen. The cottage was outfitted with all the necessities and more as well as extremely clean and well maintained we were very comfortable in cabin #1. We enjoyed cooking out on the provided grill, enjoyed the campfire and even on the rainy night we were able to relax with a good movie as they provided a DVD player. Our dog Franklin greatly enjoyed being able to run around the large lawn and hike around Whitefish Dunes State Park which was a great suggestion from Pam. The cottages are just a short drive from Sturgeon Bay and Hwy 42 which is a wonderful scenic ride up the peninsula.

Cute cabin with wonderful owners!

This was a wonderful place to stay for a girls night away. There was 6 of us and the cabin was small but the owners went out of their way to ensure our comfort! I can't wait to stay again!!!!

cozy, peaceful - wonderful owners!!

  • 5 of 5

we have spent 2 nights with small dogs. There are 3 separate cottages on the site. We stayed at Cottage #1 - ideal for 2 adults with dogs. Very clean, private and reasonable price!! We cooked at outdoor grill and enjoyed fire pit. We visited Whitefish Dune State Park and Cave Point County Park - trails are amazing. We highly recommend this place. The owners - Pam and Galen are just wonderful!!

I could never say enough about this private getaway. The location is fantastic. The owners Pam and Galen are so friendly and treat us like family. This was our second trip to their cottages. We also went in August 2011. The price is the best you'll find in the area and you don't have to contend with elevators, parking, and limited space like you do in a hotel. I love the privacy of being in our own little cottage vs hotel/motel living. We love that there's a grill out back and everything you need in the kitchen to cook if you wish. One of the biggest selling points also is, we get to bring our dog. He LOVES it there. He also loves the owner's dog Cote. He gets a warm welcome from Cote every trip. The dog beach is also nearby and a pleasant little hike from the car to the beach. Our dog made so many new canine friends there. The cottages are just a few minutes from Sturgeon Bay. Nice shopping strip there, and beautiful bay scenery. The property has a laundry facility which is so handy. We used it both trips. Beautifully groomed grounds and nice sunrises from the deck. We love the privacy, price, welcoming committee, and location. It's perfect!! Enjoy your stay there!! You won't regret it!!

Note – most online maps do not represent the location of the cottage correctly.

From Green Bay, take Hwy 57 north. Once you enter Door County (if you miss the sign, the bluffs are notable on your right), it's 19 miles. The next landmarks: Southern Door County school on your left, next will be Renard's Cheese, move into the left lane, turn left on Stone Rd. Drive (3 mi) until the end of Stone Rd. Turn left on Cty Rd C, drive 1 block, turn right on May Rd. Continue going straight (about 1 mile), do not follow Cty SB towards Jellystone Park, continue straight past the 35 MPH sign, this is Zirbel Rd. The road makes a sharp left, the next diveway on the left is Outback Cottage ~ you're here!

Golf: within 5 miles of Idlewild Golf Course.

Swimming: within 2 miles Haines Park Beach, 5 miles to one state park (there are several other beautiful state parks within the county)

Restaurant: within 2 miles, Sunset Grille, 6 miles to Morning Glory Restaurant

Southern Door Visitor Center: 2 miles at Stevenson Pier Gas, Grocery & Gifts
