About this listing
I love living in Door County. Where else can you take a hike in a State Park (Potawatomi Park) and be alone? Or on the beach on Lake Michigan with no one else around? Sure, I love people....but I love the serenity of my little acre of the peninsula..
I own a beautiful rural log home 5 minutes south of downtown Sturgeon Bay surrounded by huge maple trees, which are beautiful in any season but especially in the fall..I rent out 2 "country chic" guest bedrooms, rented separately ( a queen bed in each) with a shared bathroom. My bedroom is on the top level, so you have the run of the rest of the house with its huge living room, cathedral ceiling, cozy natural stone wood fireplace, cable TV, WiFi, dining room and shared kitchen.There is also a large deck which rings half the house, a firepit and an enclosed screen porch which is yours to use.
We are 2 minutes away from Potawatomi State Park and its wonderful hiking/biking trails, groomed ski./snowmobile trails and fishing/boating and kayak opportunities. Door County is a peninsula with 270 miles of shoreline and 5 state parks. We are known as an art and cultural paradise with live music, folk festivals, several live theatres,a vast assortment of wineries, art galleries, great places to shop, quaint boutiques and (my favorite..), antique stores galore. Door County caters for all 4 seasons.. Its been called the "Cape Cod of the Midwest"
I'm asking $110.00 per room per night (this includes Door County room tax and Wisconsin Sales Tax) which includes breakfast. I feed you exceptionally well... usually a home made hot breakfast, with great fresh-ground coffee in my French Press. You won't start a day of exploring hungry!
Price includes all Wisconsin and Door County Room Taxes...
I have a quaint wrap-around deck and porch. The porch has a roof over it. I also have a screen porch to use in the summer, so the bugs won't get you at night. I have a great fire-pit that my guests love to sit around and make awesome fires.
Interaction with Guests
I love to meet new people and get to know them. That's why I love (URL HIDDEN) so wonderful to sit and share wine and talk. If you want to be left alone, I will do that also! It's great to enjoy a fire in my fireplace in winter, or a fire outside in my firepit. I've made lasting friendships with my guests, and I've had them return time and time again!
My house is nestled in a beautiful forest of maple trees. A walk around the block is a zen moment in itself...the trees are so tall and lush. It's just a 5-minute drive to Potawatomi State Park, or a 10 minute drive to downtown Sturgeon Bay.
Sorry, Sturgeon Bay is a small town, so there is no public transportation. There is a local taxi cab though.
Main floor amenities can be used by guests. Basement has weight machine and eliptical and potentially more places to sleep... Top floor is my bedroom, which is totally my own space.. Please simply leave it as clean you found it.
I've lived in Sturgeon Bay my entire life, growing up on a cherry and apple orchard in Door County, which is a century farm, run by my brother, Kris Robertson. I have 2 wonderful sons, who both live and work in the Milwaukee area. I have 2 beautiful grandchildren, so I have to block off some time on my calender to visit them! I work full-time during the week, and occasional weekends, so there are times I can't serve you breakfast like in a restaurant, but I will have food prepared for you to eat. I have a refrigerator for you to store your own snacks and (URL HIDDEN) only request is that my home is not an all-inclusive, and I don't have a liquor license, so please don't think my liquor cabinet is a free-for-all....
I love to travel, kayak, bike, camp, hike, cross-country ski...Right now, I'm trying to hike around Door County, one beach at a time..I'm a collector of beach rocks (and my friend loves to paint on them) and have an eclectic array of antiques and family heirlooms...(I'm always on the look-out for some item I just have to have)
I love to sew, especially felted mittens, but also enjoy cozying next to my fireplace watching a good movie. I have a Jack-Russell Terrier named Jack..he's another reason I love to hike..I refinish furniture, and recently have learned to upholster. I'm a people person, and it's great to meet them this way, by helping them have a great vacation while they're in Door County...I've met such wonderful people on this site. People I know that will be my friends for life! I really believe people and experiences are what life is about..the more you learn about others, their cultures and countries..the more compassion and empathy you have. Life is to give and learn, not take...
