About Tammy M. Leemon

I have worked in the Construction PM/Management field for over 18 years. In 2014, I created a new company called Reve Calme, where I manufacturer and distribute products to luxury hotels and spas around the world. When I am not working, I enjoy the outdoors; including swimming, exercising at the gym, riding horses, walking, sitting on the beach and listening to the waves. I love living and being near the water. I like to read books and currently writing my own book. I love to meet new people. I mostly enjoy the quality time with my friends and family. I am adventurous and enjoy learning and trying new activities. When I have the time, I also love to travel. I have a Paso Fino horse, Quatro, which I enjoy riding when I am home.

I started my business, Snake Island Properties, in November 2009. I have enjoyed the hard work and learning process of all the details to a business. I like challenges and prospering in all that I do everyday.

In April 2014, I established a new business called Reve Calme, where I produce aromatherapy products such as pillow sprays and bath salts. I originally started the pillow sprays so I could give my guests who stay at the cabin a lovely gift of pillow sprays upon their arrival! Since April 2014, Reve Calme products are being sold in the USA, UAE and Southeast Asia.

Tammy M. Leemon purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Tammy M. Leemon chose Sturgeon Bay

My family and I have been vacationing in this area for over 20+ years, enjoying the winter/summer fishing seasons each year on the Bay of Green Bay (Sand Bay) and camping at Jellystone Park, which is nearby. My family built a home in this neighborhood 10 years ago and have been permanent residents in the last 2 years. My parents have been suggesting for many years that I acquire property in their beautiful and quiet neighborhood in Door County, especially waterfront property, as it is only on rare occasions that this kind of property is 'For Sale' in the neighborhood. So when this property was listed 'For Sale' my parents suggested I consider this home. Since I am living half way across the world, I was able to see the pictures and take the recommendations from my parents. At first glance of the pictures, I knew that this was the ideal home, a quaint log cabin, where others could enjoy while on vacation. Plus, this was a perfect investment for my recently established business. As this has been one of my goals in life to have my own business where I can accomodate others and allow my guests to take pleasure in what I am offering; while always striving to do better!

What makes this cottage unique

Enjoy all four seasons at Moonlight Magic. The Door County area has year-round activites for all visitors of any interest. Moonlight Magic has the beautiful waterfront view and is located so close to the water, that the only sounds you will hear are of the waves hitting the shoreline. Since it is located on a point, you will find the local wildlife who make their home in the woods. The area is filled with birch trees and pine trees. Enjoy the 3 sand beaches which are within walking distance to Moonlight Magic. Take a walk or bike around the tree-lined loop and smell the nature of the trees and flowers in the morning (I find the morning is the best time to experience the natural surroundings of the area, as your 5 senses will be over-whelmed). You will notice the friendliness of the locals who will wave and greet you as you pass by. There is a fire pit for night-time enjoyment, as it is located near the water's edge, so you can enjoy the fire and listen to the waves at one sitting.

Inside Moonlight Magic, we are continuing to acquire many books for the library, so you can enjoy some reading time. We have provided luxury bedding, bath towels, and bath soaps/lotions as an added pleasure. Moonlight Magic is complete with all new furnishings and electronics; including a flat screen tv, DVD, satellite TV and wireless internet. I have fully enjoyed selecting the interior furnishings for Moonlight Magic, as I selected all the furnishings as if I were a guest looking for comfort, excellent quality, and convenience. I have some decorations, such as the window treatments, which I had specially made in Abu Dhabi, UAE and carried half way across the world to Moonlight Magic. You will find other treasures, which I brought back with me, from my travels around the world, which are placed in Moonlight Magic. My main priority at Moonlight Magic is to make my guests feel special and have memories which will last a lifetime.

Great "northwoodsy" place on the water!

  • 5 of 5

Warm, comfortable northwoods style cabin, right on the water. Kitchen is very well apportioned--everything you might need, and then some. Clean; big fluffy bath towels. This was a great home base for a get-together for some guy friends. Would highly recommend it.

Gem in Door County!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 enjoyed this sweet little cabin for New Years. It was warm and toasty, has a great fireplace and an amazing view of Lake Michigan as it is RIGHT on the lake. it’s in southern Door County so we were right next to Sturgeon Bay yet only 45 minutes from the city of Green Bay. The beds and sheets were delightful and we really enjoyed ourselves! We can’t wait to come back. Seriously perfect. ♥️ Happy New Year to US!

Great location right on the water with gorgeous views. Fantastic host.

  • 5 of 5

Maybe the best experience I’ve ever had while traveling. The cabin was beautifully decorated, squeaky clean, smelled fresh and contained all the items you would need for a perfect stay. Tammy the host obviously puts a lot of thought into making sure her guests are comfortable and have a great time. She provided wood for the fireplace, toiletries, kitchen pots and pans and utensils, and even binoculars for us birdwatchers. Speaking of above and beyond, I forgot my work computer there. She actually drove in picked up the computer and took it to FedEx and got it to me the next day as opposed to me having to drive another six hours round trip to get it. Like I said seriously one of the best if not the best experiences I’ve ever had traveling. Thank you Tammy and I cannot recommend this cottage enough.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review! I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and even to be one of the best stays you have had! With regards to your laptop, I have been in your situation before where I left my Ipad and cover in my room at the Marina Bay Sands Hotel in Singapore. By the time I realized I left it behind, I arrived back in the UAE. I called the hotel and they sent my Ipad and cover back to me in the UAE. Therefore, I believe in paying it forward and this is the least I could do in the situation. I look forward to having you as guests in the future!

Highly recommended this place! It's is just enough away of everything touristy. A quick 40 minute drive to Fish Creek for the full Door County experience then to come back to the cabin and a fire over looking the lake to make it feel like you are up north! We most definitely will be back to make this an annual stay! The cabin itself is perfect! Clean and comfortable! Tammy is an amazing host! Until next time!
