About the property

New Waterfront Construction...New Luxury...New Memories In Beautiful Door County

The Gull Cottage is a beautiful blend of lake home and Wisconsin farmhouse. It's where hand-painted antique armoires complement sumptuous leather reclining sofas...where old-time barn doors conceal "smart" televisions...and where charming printed quilts cover butter-soft sheets and indulgent memory foam mattresses.

Featured in the 2017 Door County Showcase of Homes, Gull Cottage is all new construction on the beautiful, wooded Green Bay shoreline. This open-concept home features real hickory wood floors, two-zoned heat and central air conditioning, and tons of large windows that offer amazing views of the water and wildflower meadows framing the house.

The spectacular, open kitchen features lighted white cabinetry, granite counters, stainless appliances and a large farm sink. A massive center island offers a wine rack, built-in cutting board and counter seating for six. The LG French door refrigerator has two separate ice makers, and the LG double oven features easy convection cooking. A large Bosch dishwasher provides quick clean-ups.

The Gull Cottage kitchen is fully stocked with ample dinnerware, a variety of glassware including non-breakable for outdoors.

Just off the kitchen is a beautiful four-season, white-washed sun porch with relaxing wicker-style furnishings, shiplap cathedral ceiling, large skylights, transom windows and a pot-belly stove for cooler nights. With its walls of windows, the sun porch is a delightful indoor spot to watch the sunset.

The great room offers both dining and living room areas in one expansive yet cozy space, crowned by a large stone fireplace with barn doors that conceal a flat-screen, smart television just above the mantel. Luxurious leather reclining sofas and "sink'in" chairs, plus a soft oriental carpet provide the perfect place to relax after a busy day on the water.

The main floor features a large master bedroom with huge windows overlooking the bay. The master bath combines granite counters, charming barn lights, carrara tile and an indulgently spacious walk-in shower . A second guest room on the first floor overlooks the wildflower meadows, and is adjacent to a full bathroom.

The patio at Gull Cottage is the place to be for relaxation and magnificent water views. The patio features a large gas grill, soft outdoor lighting, a large table, umbrella and chairs for eight. A charming stone staircase leads to a generous pier with a swim ladder. The pier is an ideal spot for all day water fun, and to enjoy a glass of wine as the sun sets. A fire pit and light-weight, Adirondack-style chairs complete the tranquil outdoor setting.

Upstairs at Gull Cottage is a large guest room with hand-painted furniture, a barn wood headboard, and a private bathroom that features a sun tunnel for exceptional lighting without ever flipping on a light switch.

The star of Gull Cottage's second floor is the "bunk room," which features four extra long, spacious bunk beds. While perfect for youngsters, the bunk room can be comfortably used by adults as well. The bunks, made of solid wood, feature an easy staircase, rather than a ladder, to reach upper beds. Each spot has its own cubby space with outlets for recharging phones plus an individually-controlled bunk light. Just off the bunk room is a large bathroom with two vanities, a walk in shower, and lots of storage space. Both upstairs bedrooms feature beautiful views of the water.

The second floor also offers a spacious bonus room, with a large television and plenty of room to spread out for rainy day board games. The bonus room is carpeted, and showcases charming dormers.

All Gull Cottage beds feature memory foam mattresses, velvety-soft sheets, generous pillows and comforters. All bathrooms contain fluffy white towels and bath mats, hair dryers, gentle hand soap and make-up remover wipes. A convenient first floor laundry room features a large washer and dryer.

The home is located a short walk from beautiful Murphy Park, which offers a sand beach and public pier. Wedding parties posing for pictures by the water is a common site at Murphy Park.

A five minute drive north from Gull Cottage leads to charming Egg Harbor, with its picturesque park and harbor, shopping and restaurants.

There is much to do in Egg Harbor and beyond. Door County is ideal for family gatherings or adult getaways year round. Summer in Door County is all about the water: swimming, boating, fishing and more. In fall, the crisp air and amazing red and gold foliage are the stars. Winter offers charming storefronts glowing with holiday lights, and cozy nights by the fire. Spring brings a quiet serenity as the lake warms and Door County's abundant natural beauty comes back to life.

Door County -- and Gull Cottage -- welcome you!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We travel once a year with four other couples and have been to some pretty cool places all over the country. But this new home in Door County is by far the best. It is casual elegance with gorgeous lake views from virtually every room. There are tons of great gathering places inside and out --- from the great room to the sunroom to the large kitchen island to the cozy fire pit outside. The only disappointment was having to leave. P.S. One of the guys played hooky from work so he could spend another day. We will definitely come back to Gull Cottage!!!!

What gem!!

  • 5 of 5

We booked Gull cottage for a long weekend for a girls fall getaway and wished we could have stayed!! Gull Cottage was so warm and inviting with endless views of the lake from all windows. The house has all the amnenities of a 5 star hotel with all the comforts of home . A wonderful place to gather,from the modern country kitchen to the floor to ceiling stone fireplace in the great room. Because the house was so inviting it was hard to leave but when we did you had the beauty of DoorCounty and alll of its fall glory at your disposal. We enjoyed. peninsula State Park for hiking as well as the charm and individuality of all the towns during our drive along the Peninsula. We enjoyed the shopping and restaurants in Egg Harbor and Fish Creek.so much. We haven’t stopped talking about the lovely time we had and can’t wait to return!!!

Perfect Lake house Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

A few words can barely summarize how wonderful and beautiful the Gull Cottage is! This was the perfect Lake house getaway for our bachelorette party of 9 where we felt like we were truly on a luxury vacation. The house had everything you can possibly need for the stay and Anne was incredibly accommodating before and during our stay! Thank you for making our experience perfect! We will be back!

Pretty Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The house is exactly as pictured and more! There were 10 of us visiting the area for a 1/2 marathon. There was plenty of room throughout the house and plenty of privacy with the 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. The interior of the house is beautifully decorated, has a very cozy feel and contains many modern conveniences that go along with a newly built home like interior sensor lights that go on and off on their own.

I have to say we saw a couple of the most breathtaking sunsets I have ever witnessed. The view of Lake Michigan from the back of the house, whether looking through the large bedroom windows on the upper floor or from the first floor living space made us feel so relaxed. We lucked out on the weather because it was the winter we thought would never end. The ice went out the day before we arrived and we got to enjoy 75* plus temps and sunshine. We sat on the pier, played with the little ones in the yard, stepped inside for a bit to watch the Kentucky Derby, grilled some salmon and steaks and sat around and talked on the backyard deck. We were extremely content just hanging around the house. It's the Door County Peninsula, I know! You're thinking we should be out and about enjoying all that the quaint towns have to offer, and there's a lot!. But, we were happy being near the water hanging out with family in a beautiful and very accommodating vacation home. Oh, and the beds and pillows are top notch!

The manager of the home, Anne, and her vacation fill-in, Robert were very kind, friendly and quick to respond to any questions I had. Can't say enough about them, the house and our time spent here.

Gull Cottage is amazing! If you want a cozy yet spacious spot to enjoy Door County, look no further!

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful lake house, truly top-tier! And the very gracious owner Anne has thought of everything! Our family (6 adults and 2 pre-teens) spent a fabulous New Year’s holiday at Gull Cottage to celebrate my in-law’s 50th anniversary, and it truly was a picture-perfect long weekend. If you’re looking for a place to bring together generations, this is it! From game night and cooking elaborate meals to movie night and hiking through the snow for selfies at the end of Murphy’s Park pier, we had a blast. This house is lacking NOTHING, all the amenities are high end, and the views from every window (even in winter) were beyond stunning. We’ve rented many places on the peninsula over the last 17 years, but I think we’ve found our new favorite...

Owner's Response: I'm so delighted that you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for your kind words. You are one of those special guests who really appreciates the beauty of the area. I LOVED the darling photo you sent me of the doe and her baby playing among the wildflowers in the yard. Many thanks, and I hope you and your family visit The Gull Cottage again. You were wonderful guests!

We enjoyed our stay at this property. It is a beautiful property with great views on the edge of egg harbor. Plenty of room for large family or multi-family group. Anne was very responsive leading up to the trip and great to work with.
