The space
Sunrise Cottage is a four-season cottage -

With spring comes fishing, apple and cherry blossoms, wildflowers, lots of baby wildlife including, geese, ducks, cranes, deer, fox and then there's the migrating waterfowl - we are right in the path.

Summer has more fishing, swimming, boating, biking, hiking, walking and July fireworks.

Fall brings vibrant colors, fall festivals, the most delicious apples and more migrating birds. Fall colors start in late September and peak around the second week of October. And fishing :-)

Football!!! - Lambeau Field is 47 miles away.

Winter has ice fishing, snowmobiling and AVT/UTV-ing right from the yard. Christmas shopping in Door County will result in the most unique gifts.

Wildlife – watch for deer, squirrel, chipmunks, fox and the local mink, along with eagles, king fishers, seagulls, killdeer, woodpeckers, Cranes, pelicans, turkey vultures and migrating mergansers. This cottage is right on a migration path for numerous waterfowl.

What kind of fish will you catch - right off the dock? Most popular are smallmouth bass, yellow perch, rock bass and panfish. With a little more luck you can catch northern pike, walleye, largemouth bass, whitefish, sheepshead and muskies.

Sunrise Cottage Details:

Truely a great location. Boat launch, boat rentals, fishing guide, gas station, mini mart, resort, restaurants, bars, are all within 2 miles – Golf, state parks and churches are within 10 miles, sturgeon bay is 11.7 miles, Gills Rock at the tip of the Door peninsula is 55 miles away, and Green Bay is 40 miles away. Perfect for Door County light house tours or Wine tours. For all you Packer fans, Lambeau Field is only 47 miles away, a 54-minute drive from Sunrise Cottage.

Outside enjoy the waterfront firepit while sitting on the log cedar swing facing the beautiful bay. There is a 20’ x 15’ covered patio with picnic table attached to the garage, charcoal grill, outdoor ceiling fan, another firepit, and a spacious yard with beautiful mature oak and evergreen trees. Also, free outdoor parking for two large or three small vehicles. Parking in driveway only please. Let us know if you are bringing a trailer and we can let you know how to maneuver that in the yard.

Little Sturgeon Bay is quiet and protected, it does not get the big waves the bigger bays or Great Lakes do. It opens up to the bay of Green Bay, which connects to Lake Michigan via the channel at Sturgeon Bay. Otherwise, you would need to go all the way up to Death's Door at the tip of the peninsula (known for treacherous waters, ship wreaks, and the name's sake of Door County).

The Dock is in, it is a very solid Eklof dock, a total of 40 feet long, approximately 3.5 to 4.5 feet deep at its side. We kept our 20-foot boat there all summer for years. Bring your boat, keep it at the dock, steps away from the cottage during your visit.

Indoors the cottage has a main level and a loft. The loft is a carpeted 12 x 16-foot bedroom. The main level is ceramic tile and hardwood flooring. There is a bedroom, bathroom with a beautifully crafted shower of ceramic tile with glass doors, full kitchen and living room with a queen sleeper sofa. LOTS OF WINDOWS throughout.

The “Barage” is a separate two car garage 20 steps on the sidewalk from the house. It is the bar and entertainment center (no room to park a car), a 10-foot bar with 8 bar stools, full sized fridge, radio, TV, air conditioner, heater, electronic dart board and games included.

You have access to the entire cottage and its property, including the Barage (Bar and entertainment garage) and free parking in the driveway - two large or three small vehicles.
