As soon as you turn into the cedar-lined drive of…
East Haven is a lovely log home on the shore of Lake Michigan, in northern Door County. Built in 1992, it features many original works of art and Door County antiques. It has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, one on each floor. The master bedroom is on the first floor, and two bedrooms are on the second floor opening into a loft area in which there js a full-size pool table. All bedrooms face the lake; the first-floor bedroom opens onto a large deck, and the second-floor bedrooms each have a window seat, excellent for lounging and taking in the view. The upstairs shower features a steamer, so one can enjoy a steam experience prior to showering. ·
The first floor features a dining and living room (with a stone wood-burning fireplace and hickory floors), plus a four-season porch that includes a sitting area as well as a table and 4 chairs, suitable for games or doing crafts. The kitchen is very well equipped and plenty of pots, pans, and cooking appliances. Four sets of double doors allow wonderful access to the sounds and breezes from the outdoors, as well as plenty of natural light within the home. The front of the house has a porch with a double-seated rocking chair, and faces a flower garden. The lakeside faces a natural landscape, with a panoramic view of Newport Park, across Rowley’s Bay. One can barbeque on the gas grill or simply lounge on the deck. One can also enjoy the fire pit by the shore, and in summer, a hammock. There are no neighbors to the north (allowing outdoor showers in warm weather!), and friendly neighbors to the south.
The area feels secluded, and close to nature. It is not unusual to see bald eagles, pelicans, and all other sorts of waterfowl. One may occasionally be visited by a porcupine. The lakeshore has a stony bottom, but is very close to Sand Bay Park, which has a lovely sand beach, changing rooms, picnic tables and barbeques.
The peninsula this far north is only three-and-a-half miles wide, and directly west is Ellison Bay, where there is the Pioneer Grocery, with a huge selection of DVD’s; the venerable Viking Grill, with the best Swedish pancakes in Door County; the Clearing, a beautiful retreat center; a town park featuring public beach and tennis courts; and a boat launch into Green Bay. North a few miles on highway 42 is Newport State Park, and further north, Gill’s Rock, near the tip of Door County. There is a very good and very popular restaurant in Gill’s Rock, the Shoreline, and one can also take a ferry there to Washington Island. To take the ferry transporting cars, follow Hwy 42 a few more miles to Northport.
The home is also only five miles from Sister Bay, with its many restaurants, clothing and gift shops, boat rentals, and beautiful bay front park. It is a three mile hike or a short ride to Rowleys Bay Resort, which features kayak rentals, a boat launch into Lake Michigan, access to the Mink River Estuary, and Grandma’s Bakery, home of delicious sticky buns and cinnamon rolls.
In short, the perfect location for a quintessential Door County vacation! And, oh yes-your pooch will love it here.
