"Doc's Hideaway" sits at the tip of the Door County peninsula in beautiful Gills Rock, surrounded by lush woods on one side and the picturesque Bay and bluffs on the other. This historic mid-1800’s cabin has been lovingly renovated (admire the character of the original hand scraped wood walls and ceiling beams) with all the amenities and comforts of home. Cabin guests enjoy lake access and a private waterfront patio and seating area (with two kayaks provided in summer).

The space
Doc’s Hideaway sleeps 2-6, has a large cozy living room with a new 40" HD smart TV (with Directv), Wifi, and a wood burning pellet stove (we provide the pellets), a main level bedroom (queen bed), a full bathroom, two AC units and electric heat. The large and bright kitchen and dining area are well stocked and overlook the wooded backyard which has a gas grill, outdoor table and eating area, and a fire pit (guests love the fire pit, and we provide the firewood for a small fee). The 2nd bedroom is a large upstairs sleeping loft with four single beds (a narrow stairway leads to the loft).

Guest access
A private waterfront patio and lake access is located diagonally across the street (a 1-minute walk away). Sit down by the water with your coffee, or a glass of wine, and take in one of Door County’s most spectacular views (enjoy the sunset, listen to the waves roll in, or watch the old fishing tugs or the Island Clipper passenger ferry motor by). Two kayaks are by the water for your use in the summer (along with adult life jackets and paddles) to explore the beautiful shoreline (this is the same Bay local kayak tours launch from).

Enjoy all that Northern Door County has to offer at Doc's Hideaway. You’re just a short walk to the Shoreline Restaurant, Charlie's Smokehouse, the Shoreline boat tours, the Washington Island ferry, and boat ramps and dock space; or a quick bike ride or drive to Seaquist Orchards Farm Market, Newport State Park, Ellison Bay beach, Door Bluff County Park, and Island Orchard Cider. Sister Bay and all of its dining, entertainment, and shopping is only 10 minutes away. In Fall, there is no better place than Gills Rock to enjoy the changing colors, while still being close to all the local festivals and farm markets. And if you’re looking for a tranquil and snowy winter getaway, this historic cabin is the perfect choice; enjoy the unsurpassed beauty of Northern Door County blanketed in snow, and the Bay covered in ice.

Ask us about weekly and monthly off-season discounts in November through early-May.
