The space
Welcome to our cottage, where our family spent many happy summer vacations. We loved Door County so much that we decided to live here full time. We now live next door: close enough for us to be available should you need anything, but far enough away so you can enjoy a private retreat.

We're both private consultants that work with communities all around the country on matters concerning zoning, city planning, tourism and economic development. We're well-traveled--all seven continents--and love talking to people, but we'll also respect your right to be left alone. If you come during the summer there may be fresh tomatoes from the garden. You can relax by the lake and toast marshmallows by the fire pit.

If you like to kayak or canoe, you can cast off from your private beach. The cottage is close to state parks if you enjoy hiking or biking. Door County features many quaint small towns with nice shopping districts, including numerous art galleries and antique stores. It's pretty easy to get tickets to the many professional theatre companies that mount performances every night. Many of our bars and restaurants offer free music. Lighthouses that are open to the public abound; we have more than any other county in the country.

The details: It's a private 2 BR/ 1BA cottage on Door County's Green Bay side, south of Sturgeon Bay. There's a fireplace, fully equipped kitchen, WIFI, land line, and washer/dryer. You can rearrange the furniture to orient the seating areas towards either the fireplace (we have plenty of hardwood) or the water.

Bedroom 1 features a queen-sized bed with a regular mattress and box spring. Bedroom 2 comes equipped with a queen-sized platform bed holding a regular mattress. Both bedrooms have sliding doors facing the water and leading to small decks. Air mattresses are available if you need them set up in the living room.

All in all, it's: a terrific getaway. Come enjoy the summer season, fall foliage, fishing tournaments, hunting weekends, or snowmobiling . Pets welcome!

Where you’ll be

Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin, United States

The cottage is located in a neighborhood that characterized by .50-1 acre wooded lots with seasonal residences. People love walking and biking around our loop road which has intermittent views of Riley's Bay and Sand Bay. There are a few small resorts and one campground in the vicinity, but it's primarily single family homes. The closest restaurant, Sunset Grill, is on the other side of Riley's Bay.

I'm an information magpie with a short attention span; hence, I'm a consultant working with communities and cultural institutions around the country. Although I have a tendency to fall into my computer and no one would mistake me for a natural athlete, I love to ski and sail. Most of all, I like learning from other people through sharing food, conversation and exploration.
