This is our detached garage that is full of items so your family and friends can have endless adventures together. Including 12 bikes of all sizes and a tandem bike (10 bike helmets), 8 kayaks (4 sit-IN and 4 sit-ON), 12 life jackets of all sizes, washer board games, bags sets, fire pits, tons of lawn chairs, extra coolers to use, footballs, Frisbees, charcoal grill, 12 fishing poles and light tackle to use, table to play poker in the garage, and so much more.

We also have a 40 foot dock to enjoy as well.

We have 3 total cozy bedrooms with 7 beds total. Bedroom #1 is with a king bed overlooking the bay, Bedroom #2 is with a queen bed, and Bedroom #3 has a bunk bed of twin over twin beds and another bunk bed of full over full beds. There is also a large pack-n-play in the closet for babies to sleep in. Then in the living room there is a nice leather full sofa sleeper that folds down. The rooms are all fitted with a dark-out curtain for those that want their sleep!

We do provide all the linens, quilts, pillows for all of the beds. As well as at least one towel per guest as well. We have had the request for guests to bring a camper or tents. We will allow that but there is a charge of $50/night for a camper and $25/night for a tent.

  2. Accidents happen but please disinfect immediately and clean completely.
  3. Clean up after your dog on the outside yard and toss in the garbage.

Cleaning and Maintenance

We have a professional cleaning service and property management service that assists us with the day to day. We do understand the severity of COVID-19 and have increased the cleaning standards with time longer time between guest stays, more sanitation, and higher standards.

Utensil Sanitizing Disclosure:

“Food and beverage utensils have been provided in this unit as a guest convenience. They have not been sanitized. It is recommended that you wash with a detergent, rinse with clean water and sanitize utensils before their use. To sanitize, after rinsing, add 1 teaspoon of unscented bleach per gallon of clean water and immerse utensils for a minimum of 30 seconds, then air dry.” The sanitizer is located under the kitchen sink.

If you make a mess, please clean up after yourself. We do have a vacuum, mop, and sanitizer available. You are responsible to put your towels in the teal laundry basket, wash and put your dishes away, and your garbage bins into garbage bags (we provided the bags) then place outside in the garbage cans. Yes, you do pay for a cleaning fee but that is to change out and clean bedding and towels, sanitize, vacuum/wash/clean and tidy up between guest stays. They only have a few hours to do that between guest stays so please try and leave the place orderly.

Thanks for the memories. Bring plenty of worms for fishing. The goby fish are very hungry. The toys in the shed were a hit with the kids.

  • No illegal activity including no drugs and no underage drinking.
  • Try and leave the inside lights OFF at night when sleeping. Because if you leave lights on tiny (but harmless) lake flies get attracted to that and find their way into the screens/windows. Most neighbors on the water have the same issue. Just giving you the heads up about leaving lights off at night to prevent the little buggers from getting in.
  • The WiFi is now with Door County Broadband is very reliable.
  • Absolutely no smoking inside the cabin. You can smoke on the patio but please keep the area clean of used cigarettes
  • No glitter or confetti inside the property and please try and keep sand/water out.
  • Please try and keep the noise down late at night and be respectful of neighbors. It is a secluded area, have fun for sure, just be smart with the noise please.
  • Our dock/pier in the photo is normally put in between middle of April through early November.
  • Do NOT play on or move the break-wall rocks along the bay. That is a hazard. There is a pebble beach to the side of the rock wall and is perfect for kids to play in.
  • Be careful jumping into the water. There is high and low tide that changes the depth. So don’t dive off the dock.
  • The Sofa bed in the living room is a futon and comfortably fits 2 people when laid flat. We also have a charcoal grill for your use located on the wood deck.
