About the property

1850 Sq Ft Home W/3 Full Baths, 2 Bedrooms On Main Floor And Loft, Pier w/ladder

A perfect location between Sister Bay and Baileys Harbor. This home is away from the hustle and bustle of the towns, yet conveniently situated when needing last minute items or when wanting a little more activity. We just finished extensive remodel in 2017. You may check out our other rental home located on the south side of Baileys Harbor VRBO# 467927 which has over 60 reviews averaging 5 stars.

The house was just finished with a major interior remodeling. Remodeling project includes: hardwood flooring, painting, new kitchen, bathroom work, including 2 new tiled showers, and new mattresses. We are very excited to update the interior of our home to make it up to date and inviting.

This property has a view of the historical Cana Island lighthouse which is within walking distance. It is also located next to one of the State of Wisconsin Forests known as Spike Horn and Baileys Harbor Boreal Forest, which has a large hiking path and beach frontage.

The home, built in 1990, has all the modern conveniences you would expect. The two screened porches, facing lakeside, capture the beauty of the water and the lighthouse, as does the expansive deck.

We have added a new 80' pier for 2016 with a swim ladder.

The interior of the home has a foyer and great room which boasts a two-story ceiling with many windows that allow the natural light and surrounding beauty to enter from each side.

The kitchen is spacious and and opens up to the dining and great room. It is gorgeous! Appliances are new with dishwasher, and refrigerator with an ice maker. The laundry room has a washer and dryer for your convenience. Capable of hosting many guests this three bedroom home has access to three full baths. The master bedroom and bath are located on the main level as is the second bedroom and a full bath. The second level has a loft bedroom with a full bath.

The 6 acre lot is fully wooded with majestic cedars and pines. View wildlife visiting the back yard and enjoy a campfire in the fire pit next to the water.

About Chris

This is our third VRBO home in Door County as we have been in the vacation rental business for several years. The home was built in 1989 and is very comfortable and in good shape. We completed our major remodeling in 2016 that everyone is sure to love. It's exciting to transform an already very nice home into one you will be sure to remember when you come back to visit Door County again.

Growing up in Door County, we have always loved the Cana Island area. There is amazing beauty in this unique location halfway between Sister Bay and Baileys Harbor.

We hope you enjoy your stay and look forward to providing you with a memorable stay.

Chris purchased this house in 2015

Why Chris chose Baileys Harbor

We continually hear from our guests how much they love our home and that they plan to return. Every year our dates fill up earlier and earlier. You will not be disappointed. Take some time and look over the reviews.

What makes this house unique

We love this area of Door County with its pristine shorelines, mature trees and abundant wildlife. Door County resembles the Atlantic Coast of New England with its rugged limestone shorelines and bluffs. This home is located away from all the noise and congestion of other areas yet is conveniently located to most activities of Door County in less than 10 minutes. We love outdoor activities such as going to the beach, hiking endless trails, kayaking or paddle boarding by the lighthouses and bays, world class King Salmon, Small-mouth Bass and trophy Walleye fishing, golfing, awesome kiteboarding and its all right here without the noise and congestion of traffic. There is also very fine dining in all of the towns in Door County whether you like steaks and seafood, Italian or a Friday fish fry. Door County boasts several wineries as well as art and theatre entertainment. Every weekend there is a festival in one or more of the nearby towns. We find that one summer is not enough time to take it all in, but we love trying. We are very excited to be able to offer such a great property for you to enjoy your vacation at and we care about your visit being memorable.

Guestbook comments from the owner


We loved the place and are considering it again for next new years, which is our anniversary. It's a beautiful cottage, and we really appreciate the work that went into it.

Cool setting Clean

  • 4 of 5

House was clean. Kitchen stuff

was adequate. In the woods setting was cool and very quiet. Living room furniture could be replaced, was old and worn out. Could not find Fox News on TV. Would book again, really like the Cana Island side of Door County, no people.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your visit. We replaced a couple of the older living room pieces shortly after your visit. See updated photo. We hope to see you again. Chris and Robin

We rented this house with two other couples for a fall color photography weekend. The house was nicely remodeled and spacious. We enjoyed the large kitchen and living area. We had bad storms come through the knocked out the power, but Chris answered our call right away and we the power back on in know time. Very responsive. We highly recommend this house. Thanks for the great time!

Owner's Response: Alisa, Thank you for your review and are glad you enjoyed your stay at our home. You never know when an old fashion Door County storm will cut your power temporarily. Living nearby makes it easier for us to be responsive when guests have a problem. We look forward to your next visit to our area. Chris and Robin

beautiful setting, nice place

  • 5 of 5

the house was very comfortable, slight problems with dirty floor and rug in master bathroom (wasn't cleaned - dirty footprints all over rug), floor in bathroom covered in dust. Otherwise, everything was very good. We were very happy overall. It would help with having better instructions to use the TV, DVD, satellite (particularly if one has not had Dish satellite network before). Never could get the DVD player to show up on the TV. No big deal though as we had plenty to do in this beautiful area. waterfront description was little deceptive as you had to cross street to get to pier. Modern house and appliances, nice location, private. All of us had a terrific time and would love to come back

Owner's Response: Mark, We are glad you enjoyed our home. Your note regarding floor was forwarded to house cleaning (who usually do a great job). Not sure about the DVR as it is brand new this year (probably had the input on TV set incorrect, but these electronics can be confusing) We look forward to your next visit! Chris and Robin

Perfect place to reconnect with family!

  • 5 of 5

This home was just right for our first family vacation together with new husbands in tow. Being from Wisconsin we couldn't believe that it took us this long to actually go to Door County. This property was centrally located and easy to find everything that we needed. We had a great time exploring the surrounding area especially. The master bed mattress was a bit too firm for our taste and it would have been nice to have some kind of lighting for the path to and from the fire pit area. The kitchen was amazing and super functional. We made some great memories at this wonderful home.

Owner's Response: Sarah, We are glad you loved our home. I appreciated your suggestion about outdoor lighting and will add that to our improvement list. Also, we added a memory foam topper to master bed mattress for those who enjoy a softer sleep. We look forward to your next visit. Chris and Robin

Our location is ideal for taking in the beauty and relaxing while still having convenience to see all Door County has to offer. Door County boasts enjoyable festivals throughout the year. There are a handful of small towns all with their own charm. It is fun to explore the variety of activities featured throughout the county.

Door County also has numerous parks and natural areas to hike and bike. There are eco tours such as zip lining and kayaking (check out Lake Shore Adventures website). This is a must do!!! The beauty of this area is known as the gem of the mid-west.

There are also several light houses scattered along the shorelines of Lake Michigan. Wether you are a history buff or looking to capture the perfect photo, you will want to visit them.

We also have wineries, breweries, and a distillery that all offer taste sampling and tours.

There are too many great dining options to mention them all. Check out: the Top Deck at sunset, Chives, Pasta Vino and the Fish Market in Baileys Harbor, the Water Front, Mission Grill, and Al Johnson's (for the goats) in Sister Bay.

The Salmon fishing is amazing. You can see the charter boats come into Baileys Harbor with their catches. If you like to fish make time to get on the water with one of Lake Shore Adventures captains. They are experienced captains and will provide you with a memorable trip.
