PRIVATE SUNSETS OVER THE BAY
Grab a glass, mug or carafe of something tasty and toast to the ever changing glory of Door County sunsets. After the sun goes down, grab a blanket and watch the stars come out, twinkling with their northern skies ferocity.
ENJOY YOUR BACKYARD
It's hard to be inside when the views in the backyard are so compelling! We've set up the yard to enjoy it throughout the day. The Gazebo views are great for dining and then napping on the daybed. The teak bench is terrific in the morning when the sun warms your shoulders. The Adirondack chairs provide a place to put up your feet for most of the afternoon. The granny wicker chairs are in the shade late day. And there's always a great spot for a game of bocce/boules.
EGG COTTAGE IS NICE TOO!
We'll admit the real draws of Egg Cottage are its "downtown" village location and it's stunning views, but sooner or later you need to go inside. We've done everything we can to make our little 1898 pioneer home as modern and comfortable as possible, but you'll still enjoy the creak of its floors and the nostalgic sound of an old screen door slamming shut.
Ditch the car: After morning coffee in the gazebo watching sailboats drift by, walk across the street and have some cherry pancakes at one of Door County's best breakfast spots. Then hit Egg Harbor's beautiful sand beach, rent some kayaks and explore the coast, stock up on wine at the Main Street Market, toss something tasty on the grill and dine in the gazebo as the sun sets.
The screened gazebo is our favorite place to have morning coffee and evening sunset meals. And indulging in a nap outside on the daybed in late afternoon is about as good as it gets.
Featuring a screened gazebo with a nap-friendly daybed and a dining area, an expansive wood deck, several outdoor seating areas and a 2-person hammock with a view - the only problem you'll have is trying to figure out where you want to relax.
The cottage offers an open floor plan with 1350 sq ft of living space. There's one queen bedroom downstairs (the original living room), a bathroom with walk-in shower and a washer and dryer, a full kitchen with breakfast bar, a dining area and a comfy living room with a 58" Smart TV and a decorative (non-functioning) stone fireplace. Upstairs, there's a queen bedroom with vaulted ceilings, a dressing area and en-suite bathroom with a walk-in shower.
Everything you need to whip up the perfect meal or signature drink: full size fridge, range, dishwasher, microwave, blender, hand mixer, toaster, dishes, glasses, cookware. Bon Appetit!

Egg Cottage was built in 1898. It is 120 years old. She's no spring chicken, she creaks sometimes, and has character that no amount of updating can erase (nor would we want to!) We love the little reminders of the past and the years of memories we share this home with, but the quirks, well, there are a few:
The old screen door makes a gorgeous old-fashioned slamming noise - we could muffle it, but we like it.
The upstairs floors will creak and the stairs to the second floor are original - steep and uniquely spaced. Those with mobility issues may struggle to climb them.
The living room fireplace is decorative only (non-functioning). It is lit with electric timed candles that go on and off automatically, providing a warm glow. A wood-burning outdoor fire pit will be available for the 2019 season, along with smoring spears and piles of cozy outdoor throws.
Egg Cottage is very much an adult retreat and we are not able to host children. Guests must be at least twenty-one years old.
100% No Smoking
Breathe that fresh Door County air!
We are a 100% smoke-free property, including all outdoor areas.
Pets are not allowed inside the cottage or on the grounds, including all outdoor spaces.
And if it rains? Lucky you! Watch storms move in over the bay and toast to the rain gods in the refuge of the screened gazebo.
