About Jessica Dennis

We are the Dennis Family and we're the proud owners of Baileys on the Rocks Cottages. We're a young family of four that loves to travel and feels at home on the water. We love the energy and excitement of summers in Door County and the peace and quiet of the pristine winters. We're passionate about sharing this little treasure of Wisconsin with our guests.

Why Jessica Dennis chose Door County

We purchased this property from a family friend who had owned it for almost a decade. She loved this cottage and cared for it like she would her own home. After spending some time in Baileys Harbor in the winter of 2013 we knew we had found a place we loved. The decision to purchase the cottage was an easy one and we've never looked back. We have many repeat guests and we always welcome new visitors. We love hearing the stories of travelers and what brings them to Door County. We always hope they love it as much as we do.

What makes this cottage unique

We truly have something for everyone. If you're looking for a cozy, older character cottage, Rockledge is a great option for you. The cottage is right across the street from Lake Michigan and centrally located in the Door Peninsula. It is surrounded by the most magnificent trees growing right out of rock and provide peace and quiet that's hard to match anywhere else.

Cozy Cottage near to everything important

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was clean, comfortable and very convenient. Nicely updated kitchen, and we appreciated the Dish Network TV and the internet with WiFi. We enjoyed the porch, and appreciated the option of the fire pit outside - though we didn't light a fire. Parking for 2 cars was great. EASY walking distance to all of downtown Bailey's Harbor - so you don't always have to drive.

The locals call the Eastern side of the Peninsula "the Quiet side" and after spending a week in Bailey's Harbor, we agree.

We thought the location was convenient to everything in Door Co. Seemed like it was only a 15-30 minute drive to get to any of the other towns...Fish Creek, Sister Bay, Sturgeon Bay, any of them. Hit up the touristy things to do in those towns, and then cruise back to Bailey's Harbor to enjoy the serenity.

But we found a lot to do and see right in Bailey's Harbor. Our recomendations:

DC Deli - awesome breakfast, and smoked meats for lunch! Eat here once...you'll want to come back for more.

Bearded Heart Coffee - very flavorful roasts

Cornerstone Pub - great too

Door County Brewing - excellent brews, in a brand new building

Custer's Last Stan - Great sub sandwiches. Only had a little bit of custard here, but it was great.

The Ridges Sanctuary - surprising to find miles of well constructed walking paths in the woods! Plus two light houses to check out!

Lakeshore Adventures - we took a guided Kayak tour. It was a bit of work, but it was worth it. The Sea Caves were awesome.

All in all, we were big fans of the Cottage and the town. The only thing that kept me from giving it 5 stars was that the cottage did not have air conditioning. Honestly, this was not a problem, the weather was in the 70's and every room has a ceiling fan, which made it comfortable. But if you want me to give 5 stars...better have some A/C.

A delightful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This charming cottage is in an ideal location, just at the edge of the lovely village of Baileys Harbor. The kitchen is well supplied, and has a disposal in the sink, which really helps with cleanliness. The water pressure is good, making showers a pleasure. We are probably the only guests who never turn on the TV, but it is wide screen. The Internet connection at one point was slow, but this has been corrected.

Our favorite feature is the screened porch, where we can experience the feel of country living while we enjoy our morning coffee (the coffee maker is excellent!). We attend an annual event in the area, and hope the cottage will always be available for that week, so i don't want to rave too loudly, but honestly, you cannot go wrong with this attractive rental.

Relaxing, peaceful atmosphere.

Hi Jessica !

We enjoyed staying in your cottage these past few days. The location was perfect and we especially appreciated being on the "quiet side". We'll definitely be back as we didn't have enough time to visit Washington Island. Did manage to sleep in everyday and read almost an entire book, though ! Very relaxing. We needed that.

Great location; cozy, comfortable cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage--had everything we needed. Jessica, bless her heart, even provided an iron & ironing board for me! The cottage is close to the town of Bailey's Harbor, so we were able to walk into the town for dinner & shopping.

I would absolutely stay there again!

Charming cottage in Bailey's Harbor

  • 5 of 5

Well preserved old cottage right in town but surrounded by spring wild flowers and woods. Walk into town park and restaurants and of course easy access the rest of Door County. Best appointed kichen I could imagine with a view of Lake Michigan. Porch for morning coffee. Hope to be back again.
