Come enjoy a spacious, sunny lovely studio surrounded by gardens and a deep, green forest with Lake Michigan just across the road. On the eastern shoreline of Door County, the studio has cathedral ceilings and two walls of windows. Arty, comfy and quiet. Secluded with private views of the surrounding forest. Full kitchen. Restaurants and market nearby. Excellent hiking and biking. Easy access to all of Door County. If you need a longer or shorter stay, please contact us for availability.

The space
Cathedral ceilings and room-size windows open to a forest and gorgeous, natural gardens all around you. Walk the short path to Lake Michigan and have your coffee on the bench there at sunrise. This is the "Quiet Side" of the peninsula, popular with hikers and bicyclists, and nature lovers. You will see deer, foxes, birds and enjoy nature to the fullest. There is a big backyard with a table and barbecue for your use. Behind you is the 1000 state-protected acres of Shivering Sands State Natural Area.
The studio has one queen-size bed. I can also provide a comfortable single sleeping pad made up for a third person on the oriental rug.
Glidden Drive is the Eastern Shore of the Door Peninsula and one of the most desirable parts of the county: private, quiet, scenic. Woods and water, stone shores and sandy beaches are nearby.
For the security of my guests I kept the studio empty all winter. I have of course instituted extra cleaning procedures. Also, I always allow a least a full day between bookings to allow for more time for cleaning and “airing out” between guests. The gardens are blooming, the air is warm and scenery is, as always, fantastic.
Please note that I made some "decorating" changes in January 2021. Just upgraded the art and the headboard and the TV. If the photos don't match, I have noted in the captions which is the current decorating.
Oh! And the property is sprayed monthly in the summer so the mosquitoes are far and few between making it easy to enjoy the back yard.

Where you’ll be

Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin, United States

There are only large private homes here on this beautiful Wisconsin-designated Rustic Road. This is the shore of Lake Michigan and is all woods and water gorgeous. Biking and kayaking are popular. Great hiking goes through the 1000 acres of protected land behind the house as well as all through the County. Popular Whitefish Dunes State Park and Cave Point County Park are five miles away. Woods and water surround you everywhere. Two restaurants and a well-stocked convenience store (meat, veggies, etc) are nearby. All of Door County is available for you to see and enjoy in this centrally-located place on this spot on the Peninsula. Shopping, theater, museums, fishing, swimming, great food, historical places.... it's all here in these small, friendly towns.

I moved to Door County 20 years ago, from San Francisco, and never looked back! I love the comfy, small-town feel of Door County but also love the access to theater, good restaurants, hiking and biking and lots of interesting people. I love to read and write, hike, go to movies and live theater. I'm a mostly-retired teacher and counselor.

During your stay

If you choose, I'm always available to give information about Door County sites, hikes, activities, restaurants, destinations and the like. I'm a foodie, so love to share the food renaissance that is going on here now. If you'd rather be left alone, that's fine too!
