Cottage & Bay was refreshed top to bottom in 2023. Our home will offer your family modern comforts through brand new luxury mattresses, two cozy and comfortable bathrooms, and a comfortable open kitchen, dining room, sun room, and living room space.

The home is ideally located 5 minutes south of downtown Sister Bay, and our property is directly off Highway 57. That means two things, it's very easy to get to, but there's also plenty of traffic on Highway 57 around Sister Bay. While we're confident it won't hinder your stay, it's important to note that you may see or hear cars passing by the home on the highway. Additionally, while our home is just south of Sister Bay and close to most of downtown Sister Bay's main attractions, walking into town is not simple, as Highway 57 is a busy road with small shoulders and no sidewalks or bike paths. We do recommend that guests be prepared to drive to and from our home as that's the best means of transportation to and from the house.

After requesting your reservation, you will receive a notification to complete our Rental Agreement, confirming the terms and conditions of your stay at Cottage & Bay, which you will be able to execute digitally.

Cottage & Bay does have two external cameras monitoring the driveway as well as the fire pit, and also uses noise monitoring systems to monitor the noise on property.

Our family has visited Door County for many years and we've always dreamed of owning our own little piece of paradise in this beautiful area of Wisconsin!

Cottage and Bay is that dream come to life. We've put a lot of love and care into the home to make it a wonderful place for a family getaway. We love relaxing at the fire pit roasting s'mores after a day of exploring Door County! On the days that the Wisconsin weather won't cooperate, we enjoy playing a round of pool, family board games or building puzzles. The location is a perfect oasis yet a quick drive over to Sister Bay!

The home is just a short drive to the beach and the wooded lot is fun for exploring! We're excited to make plenty more family memories and are happy to be able to offer Cottage and Bay for you to make memories in as well. Let us know if there is anything we can do to make your stay perfect.

Enjoy the private location, quick access to shopping, dining, and all the adventures that Door County offers at

Cottage and Bay!


We’ve stayed at a lot of properties up and down the door peninsula and this place is a gem. For our family of 5, it was perfect if not a bit larger than we needed. Plenty of space for everyone. The kids loved the bunk room and provided toys and games. The parents loved the sunroom for nap time reading and relaxation as well as having a more secluded master bedroom. The shower water pressure is unreal! Very private but 3 minutes from the sister bay strip/beach/restaurants. The hosts were fantastic, very accommodating for an unplanned check in and late check out. We come to door a few times a year and this property will be hard to beat. Don’t hesitate, book this place!


Perfect location. Clean, updated home that is secluded and private, away from the hustle and bustle of sister bay, but only a 2 min drive to town.


We loved Cottage & Bay. It was clean, beautifully decorated, spacious and cozy with a fully appointed kitchen with everything you need to cook, bake and grill. The bathrooms had full sized bottles of shampoo, conditioner and body wash. Plenty of extra towels and linens, including beach towels, dishwasher tabs and laundry detergent, all thoughtful touches that made our stay comfortable. The home has plenty of space to hang out and would be a great place to bring your family and still feel like you have enough room. Plenty of parking, too.

We liked the privacy of the property while still being minutes away from everything. We brought our dog and there is nowhere to walk along 57, so we drove 15 minutes to Ellison Bay for beautiful scenery and a peaceful walk. There is a fenced doggie run on the property though.

Check-in and check-out were easy. The hosts provided an electronic guidebook with property and area recommendations. I would love to return and stay here again.


Great Door County rental! Nicely updated, clean and comfortable! Loved the porch!


Great experience


Awesome hosts and house. Very spacious and comfortable. Pretty lot and wooded surroundings.


Great place to stay close to Sister Bay. Online guide shows the effort they put into making your stay as great as possible and no check-out checklist was the icing on the cake!


Was an excellent spot for 6 adults and 2 infants to spend the weekend while doing the Fall 50 Race! It was very nice, clean, and family friendly.


We stayed here for only 2 nights, but were so happy with the location, space and hosts! There was plenty of outdoor space to explore, indoor activities to enjoy (we really loved the pool table and puzzles), space to spread out for quiet time, and very comfortable beds! We loved the snow and can't wait to come back in other seasons too! The proximity to Sister Bay was great too!!


You want big but cozy, private but close-by, calm but fun...The Cottage & Bay has it all! A big house with EVERYTHING you might need (or need but you didn't know you did...) it's secluded off the road and has its own forest around. It's private - no noisy or nosey neighbors - but only a short drive to the town center (shops, restaurants etc.). It can be the perfect oooohmmmm get away - with books, a sunroom, and fireplace or a roaring fun house - with ping-pong and foosball tables, a large dining (game;) table, and lots of board games.

There is ample parking space for four cars, plenty of spaces to hang, sit, eat, relax - so bring your friends and their friends, too! Everything is exceptionally clean and well equipped - hair dryer, lots of fluffy towels, thoughtful black make-up cloths, tissues, cotton balls...and a fully equipped kitchen, including salt & pepper, coffee & tea. The hosts reach out to you prior to arrival and are available for questions/comments throughout. Bravo!


Cottage and Bay was the perfect amount of everything! The house was clean, and easy to get into. The location was perfect! Close to Sister Bay, Ephraim, State parks, and so much more! The home is surrounded by trees, the back yard was perfect for a fire after a long day exploring! The house had all the necessities! The house was clean, with clean linen and towels! There were games to play, cupboards had everything you would have at home! The house could easily be for a big family or a couples get away! The hosts were very responsive and easy to communicate with! There is a gas station 2 blocks away, that has anything you may need or forgotten, with a really quaint restaurant attached, just perfect so convenient! I will be back, next time for a much longer stay! Thank you so much for sharing this special place!

I’ve stayed at a lot of rentals and this was one of my favorites. Every detail was on point and there was clearly a lot of thoughtful intent with the space. Comfortable beds and excellent water pressure - both of which are super important to us. The property was private but still minutes away from everything. We will definitely be back!


First, Mitch and Katie were excellent hosts! Great communication and were very quick to answer my questions!

Second, the house was exactly as portrayed on the listing. It was beautifully decorated - many things I would do in my own home. The cabinetry in the kitchen and bathrooms could use an update - vanities are very low. But the kitchen was well stocked with anything we needed. Beds were comfortable and it was great having a room with bunk beds for our 4 kids to share. Our favorite room was the back sunroom.

The location was great driving distance to any of the towns. It was rough being on 57 - couldn’t walk to anywhere or even walk our dogs (the fenced in area for the dogs was awesome, though!).

Overall, we had a wonderful stay and would consider it again in the future!

We had a great stay at Cottage and Bay. Everything was as described and the house was very clean. The location is great as well. Easy to find and very close to Sister bay. We would definitely return.


Loved the Cottage for a family vacation!! Very nice and comfortable place. Loved the dog run, hiked the property, and enjoyed the heated garage with pool and foosball table. The hosts were very friendly, easy to contact, and responsive! The pathway lights bothered us at night and when we reached out they were able to fix it very quickly. I would stay here again with my family as we had a lot of room to spread out. The one thing I would bring next time or recommend would be having a griddle for breakfast food. Also loved the k cups they provided!!


we absolutely loved our long weekend at cottage & bay. the just outside of town location was exactly what we were looking for to enjoy the peace and quiet. the house was exactly as the photos and we were able to settle right in. we loved our daily walks on the property with our dog. and she loved watching out the window for deer. would absolutely recommend for anytime of the year getaway!
