Nestled at the quiet south end of the waterfront village of Egg Harbor is a restored 1930’s Sears Cottage Kit house with original maple floors, open spacious floor plan and a large yard. All modern amenities along with fresh comfortable furnishings, yet tons of vintage charm, and great location make this your home away from home. Viola raised 6 children here, there is plenty of room for you & your family to have the perfect vacation get away. 

The Cottage

If you did or didn't have Grandparents with a cottage 'up north' that you visited every summer now you can pretend you are there and create life long memories! Our restored cottage has everything Grandma would have like cotton quilts and rocking chairs yet is even better with wi fi, cable tv, central air,  and coffee shops, dining and more just a few blocks away. Backyard BBQ's, campfires under the stars, bike rides to the beach, fishing at the marina, the sunset just a stroll away, reading a book on the daybed- these are all the things our guests write about in our guest book. Our quaint cottage has everything you need from a fully equipped kitchen to extra quilts and on hand staff to help with vacation needs. There are 3 bedrooms (1 queen, 1 full, 1 twin) and a 4 season porch that is open to the living room with a twin daybed. The bathroom has a corner shower (no bathtub). We supply all bedding and towels (please bring your own beach towels), garbage bags, paper towel, toilet paper, hand and dish soap.  There is a small garage for bikes, kayaks, or anything else to stow away (not for cars).  So bring the pets and the family, or not, and enjoy all that Door County offers right out your front door.

Guest Access

This 950 sq foot cottage sits on a one third acre lot at the quiet south end of the village. The entire property is for you alone to use. The sidewalks into the village start right out front. You are in a private residential area yet all the restaurants, marina, beach, and center of the village are just a short stroll away. The back yard has a campfire pit, gas grill and a patio furniture. There is plenty of parking for extra guests, or a small boat. There are large mature trees for shade and privacy, the back of the property is lined with many acres of forest. A little front deck is perfect for morning coffee in the Adirondack chairs watching the village come to life, or the flowers grow in our pretty shade garden. Next door is our smaller rental cottage. We have many families rent both cottages (perfect for grandma & grandpa). They have a large yard in between and each sits on its own lot, so privacy is not an issue. We are on the main road, but speed limit is only 30 mph and cottages have enough trees and foliage for privacy and very minimal road noise. Location, charm, and available very personable customer service makes this the perfect Door County cottage getaway.

Guest interaction

Next door is our women's boutique-Patricia Shoppe. Located in the historic Egg Harbor Town Hall building. We are open everyday and available to help with your vacation needs, or anything you might need with the cottages. Check in and out is at the shop. The way the properties are situated you won't be bothered by the shop as the back of the cottage faces the store & parking lot, there is a privacy fence too. Being right next door 7 days a week is what sets us apart from many vacation rental homes, we are available at all times for immediate assistance with any questions or concerns you might have. 

A brief history

In 2008 our neighbors stopped by my store and asked if we would be interested in buying their cottage- we did not hesitate, of course we did! We knew it had been taken very good care of and had always admired its charm. We knew it would make a perfect vacation rental, as it has great location and is the perfect size. Being right next door at the shop everyday I can take good care of our guests, offering them help with their vacation needs. In 2010 the owners of the next cottage over did the same. If you are familiar with the county at all you know that these little gems are slowly disappearing. Many times these properties are sold and torn down for larger condos. I was lucky to have neighbors who loved their cottages and wanted the right owners to pass them on to. These little places of ours do not bring us a grand fortune, but help pay the mortgage and we love that people want to come and enjoy this peninsula we call home and enjoy the original authentic charm. 

Neighborhood overview

Egg Harbor is centrally located on the peninsula with Sturgeon Bay only a 20 minute drive (this is where chain stores and 24 hour life happens). The lake side of the peninsula is just a short 10 minute drive, and Fish Creek and other villages just north a few minutes drive as well as state parks and country roads all around for biking, hiking, and exploring. The neighborhood is within village limits and walk able to everything! There is a great dog park, grocery store, restaurants, coffee shops, boutiques, marina, beach, outdoor music venue, marina view park, walking trails and more. This beautiful waterfront village is yours to explore right out your front door. Click here for more info about Egg Harbor
