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 much. We haven’t stopped talking about the lovely time we had and can’t wait to return!!!

Wonderful Door County Rental!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of ten truly enjoyed our stay at Gull Cottage. Anne was very responsive to our questions before and during our stay. This home is beautiful and well appointed. The kids enjoyed the bunk room and upstairs loft. The sun porch was a great place to hang out together, especially in the morning. The beds were very comfortable. Evenings were a highlight! We loved the firepit along with the gorgeous sunsets! We will definitely stay here again!

Fantastic house in great location

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a week long stay with 9 family members ranging in age from 76 to 11. The house is gorgeous with plenty of room and bathrooms for everyone. The beds were incredibly comfortable, the kitchen was very well stocked and the four kids loved the game room. It allowed them to watch a movie while the adults were downstairs talking and play many games of foosball. The sun room was wonderful especially with the windows open and breeze blowing off the lake. I thought the 4 teenagers might find the bunk room too cramped, but they all agreed it was perfect.

We used the fire pit twice and saw some beautiful sunsets over the bay. The older people loved sitting on the patio watching birds and boats. We also launched kayaks next to the pier which was convenient. I would highly recommend water shoes for doing that as the shore is rocky. The view from almost every room in the house is of the bay and I will definitely miss it.

The house is located about a quarter mile from a public park with boat launch. This led to a few jet skis driving back and forth, but it was tolerable. More on the positive, it is located not too far from Egg Harbor which was handy given someone in our party was always going to the grocery store. There is a two car garage with plenty of room for other cars on the driveway.

It is difficult to find a house with enough bathrooms for our family in Door County that is on the water. This house was everything we wanted and we have already booked for next summer. I would recommend making reservations sooner rather than later as the week we wanted was already reserved. Owner is very responsive and a pleasure to deal with regarding specifics. Thanks for letting us stay and we can’t wait until next summer!

Second Stay... as fabulous as the first!

  • 5 of 5

This house is now our summer vacation spot. This is the second year we stayed at Gull Cottage and it doesn’t disappoint! It is such a beautiful home, immaculately maintained and oh such comfortable luxury. Our group of eight had a fabulous time for the second year in a row. We started every morning in the beautiful sunroom with a cup of coffee and ventured out to the backyard and lake for a day of play and R&R. Love the new outdoor living room furniture. Every night was “a wrap” with wine and laughter around the firepit. Then off to the cozy comfy beds for a great night’s sleep. Everything from the gourmet kitchen, to the beautiful living room, darling bedrooms and luxurious bathrooms— this place is a gem! Summer 2019 is already in the works back at Gull Cottage!

Perfect family home! Fabulous location, waterfront, well thought out design and layout.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house. It is clean and new with beautiful high end appliances, fixtures and furniture. The home is well designed and spacious, obviously designed with great attention detail (large closets, sun room with doors to close off from kitchen, double sinks/vanities in bathrooms). Perfect for families, very kid friendly.

Being on the waterfront is a huge bonus. The sunsets are amazing and there is a fun fire pit down by the water. I would recommend this home to anyone looking for an upscale residence. We hope to make this an annual vacation spot!
