About Andy Stecher

CEO and President of Plasmatreat based near Chicago IL - married, 2 children. Our family purchased the property in 2005 and built it to our specification.

Andy Stecher purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Andy Stecher chose Door County

The location is about 4h car ride from Chicago, close enough for long weekend get-aways. The location is marvelous. It is enough off the beaten path to relax and get away from it all but close enough to many attractions that add fun and excitement to our stay if we choose to take advantage of it.

What makes this cottage unique

Our cottage backs to rocks and woods (we call the enchanted forest) but overlooks the water on the other end. We are close to a boat rental business (about 200yds) and also close to the entrance to a great state park, Pottawatomi State Park (about 300yds). The park has ample of hiking and running path and a boat launch. In the winter it allows for snow mobiling. Ice fishing is possible in the bay. Sturgeon Bay is gorgeous with its many shops and restaurants. The YMCA close by allows for sports, athletic and pool activities. The cottage itself provides all the amenities a modern day traveler would want while still being away from home and the usual environment.

Great customer service

  • 5 of 5

I recently got back from my 2nd stay at Basswood this year. The home is very well kept, with all the amenities you need. Close enough to the town, but far enough away to feel 'remote.'

Andy make sure this stay was excellent and went above and beyond to make up for a few hiccups from the previous stay earlier this summer. As always, he was really accommodating and made sure to over-communicate everything I needed to know about my stay. We will certainly be back, again!

Thanks, Andy!

Wonderful 4th of July weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Having waited too long to book a place for the 4th of July, we took a chance using VRBO, and boy are we glad we did! Upon arrival we given a tour of the resort and all the amenities (pool, bikes, sauna, grill, kayaks, etc). The cabin was clean and well maintained, plenty of room for six adults. The view from the cabin overlooking the Sturgeon Bay channel was perfect for watching the fireworks. Everyone had a great time, we will be back again!

Excellent and affordable

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect for our group that came up for a fishing trip. Everything is modern and very well maintained. The property managers were very helpful when I locked us out of the cottage....thanks for that. There is an indoor hot tub available in the neighboring building with a nice view. There is a very nice gas grill down by the water that we used and was really nice to cook our fresh fish on. There are a few rowboats/canoes for use too, but we didn't use any.

I am 100% satisfied, but just so others know, this is in a 'resort' type community, but it is an individual cabin and very private. I thought it was just one cabin on it's own property before I showed up, but seriously, don't disregard this place because of that. We never saw our neighbors.

Great place overall, we will definitely be back!!

P.S. If anyone wants to do some great fishing, try out Reel Action Charters, they were a great company and I'm very satisfied with them. It's only about a 10 minute drive or less to their dock from this cabin.

Exactly what we wanted

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is perfect for a quick get-away. There was plenty of space, it was very clean and quiet, and the staff was incredibly helpful. My husband and I had a wonderful time here, and the cabin's amenities included bikes, canoes, pool, etc. A state park is right down the road for hiking. There was a lot to do and the location was perfect. The cabin was perfect and I highly recommend it. The pictures do not do it justice.
