"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. New in 2022: extra fast Wifi via Starlink (up to 105 mbps) and a high efficiency ductless AC and heating system.

The space
Doc’s Hideaway is spacious and comfortably sleeps 1-4, has a large cozy living room with a 40" HD smart TV (with Directv), fast Wifi, a wood burning pellet stove (we provide the pellets), a main level bedroom (queen bed), a full bathroom, and a high efficiency ductless heating and AC system. 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 two twin beds and a large seating area (a narrow stairway leads to the loft).

Where you’ll be

Ellison Bay, Wisconsin, United States

Enjoy all that Northern Door County has to offer at Doc's Hideaway… you’re just a short walk to the Gills Rock watefront park, the Shoreline Restaurant, Charlie's Smokehouse, the Shoreline boat tours, and the Washington Island ferry; 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.
