FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

When we’re at the cottage, a walk down to the Egg Harbor beach is part of our everyday experience.  It’s a gorgeous sand beach and is under a mile away.  For us, it’s about a 15 minute walk. Here’s a link to a map showing the walk from Egg Cottage to the Beach.

We have a terrific picnic backpack with a wine bottle holder, plates, cutlery and wine glasses for four.  We also offer a picnic blanket/mat, beach towels, beach umbrella and a cooler. Just be sure to pack sunscreen and a hat.

Egg Cottage offers High Speed Wireless Internet that’s password protected and secure.

We designed Egg Cottage to be the perfect couples getaway – for a single couple or up to four people. We offer a 1st floor only cottage option (1 bedroom/1 bath) that is ideal for two people or a solo getaway.  There’s also a whole house 2 beds/2 baths rental option, very comfortable for up to four adults. With either rental option, you’ll always have the entire property to yourself.

Egg Cottage has a large screened gazebo with a dining table for four. It’s perfectly positioned to take in the water views and sunsets.  Keep your eyes peeled, we’ve often spotted eagles soaring over the backyard bluff.

We’ve set up the yard to enjoy the views throughout the day. The Gazebo is great for dining and 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.

We have three standard size on-site private parking driveway spots to accommodate our guests. One of those spots is in a covered carport. Overnight parking on the street is allowed May through the end of October.

When we were looking for a Door County cottage, we only wanted to be in Egg Harbor, for many reasons.  We created an entire page on our site answering this question, featuring the Top 10 Reasons.

There are three courses less than 5 minutes from Egg Cottage and one more only 8 minutes away. Egg Harbor courses include the Alpine Golf Course (36 hole historic course known for beautiful water and bluff views), The Orchards (18 hole championship golf course continuously rated as one of the best in DC), Stonehedge (9 hole affordable family-friendly course) and the exclusive Horseshoe Bay (4th ranked private golf course in Wisconsin). 

DRIVE from Egg Cottage: Stonehedge – 2 minute drive, The Orchards – 3 minutes, Alpine Golf Course – 4 minutes, Horseshoe Bay – 8 minutes.

Ditch the car for the day (one literary): 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.
