On the shore of the most beautiful bay in Northern Door County, Cappy Cottage is a lovingly cared for family retreat nestled in a forest of cedar, pine, and birch trees.   It is a slice of Old Door County, situated on land owned by the same family for over 125 years.  There are 300 feet of private shoreline facing east over North Bay and Lake Michigan.  You must be warned that your early mornings may be interrupted by incredible sunrises.  Fortunately, you will be able to make up the lost sleep as the only sounds you hear at night are the breeze in the trees and the crackling of the Milky Way overhead.

North Bay Drive is a very quiet, little traveled road which makes it a perfect place for couples to spend a quiet week or a family with kids to safely run amok in the summer sun.   In the spirit of North Woods adventure, we welcome visitors of all races, genders, nationalities and religions.

The woods surrounding Cappy have many “secret spots” to explore and the beaches are full of fossil bearing rocks dating back to when the area was under a tropical sea.  Due to the high water level of Lake Michigan over the last few years, there is currently no direct water access at Cappy, but Door County’s beautiful beaches and state parks are only a short drive away.

The north end of the bay is a wonderful playground of sand flats and shallow water, warming sooner than many Door County Beaches.

The yard in front of Cappy is an inviting place to while away a summer afternoon reading and snoozing in lawn chairs or hammock.  It features the oldest, intact shuffle board court in Door County (though mostly used for sidewalk chalk art these days).  At the end of a day spent adventuring in the County, you have a grill and picnic table for a cookout or you can prepare dinner in Cappy’s well equipped kitchen.

Best of all, Cappy offers the charms of the “Quiet Side” of Door County yet is 10 minutes away from all the activities in the villages and our terrific parks.

Don’t take our word for it!  Quotes from the Cappy Cottage Guest Book:

We had a wonderful time at Cappy Cottage.  It felt like the coveted invitation to a relative’s cabin……thanks for sharing your family’s legacy with us.”

My wife searched this space out and, while I am impossible to please, I have not a single complaint. Our 5 year old knew we chose a winner once he saw the marble run in the children’s room.”

We have stayed at many cabins in a lot of different places and Cappy truly rates at the top  Great amenities.  Great ambiance.  Love the tender  touches of years gone by.”

Floor Plan Description

Go up a ramp and step into the screen porch.  There is a sliding patio door on your left into the dining area, or straight ahead is the main door to the house.  Enter into the living room with a beautiful stone fireplace with a gas insert; the kitchen is immediately on your left, or take a sharp left into the aforementioned dining area.  The bunk room is past the kitchen on the left – it has four built in twin bunk beds.  The top bunks are best for children, although some adults have utilized them.  The master bedroom with king bed is straight through the living room and it has a stone fireplace that mirrors the one in the living room, though non-functional.  Located between the two bedrooms, the full bathroom with tub and shower also has a washer & dryer.
