The cottage was clean and well set-up. We stayed in Cottage C, which has two bedrooms, living room and a kitchen. There is a grill at back of the cottage. We went over to the dock to see sunrise. The sea level was blocked by woods far away. Overall speaking it was a great place to stay.

... very relieved after 30 minutes when the storm passed out over Lake Michigan and produced one of the best sunsets of our trip.
The next day we started by taking a 4 mile hike along Lake Michigan. We rewarded ourselves after exercising with miniature golf (which we tied in), cheese and wining tasting, and some afternoon beers at some of the local bars in Fish Creek. Our time in Door County concluded with yet another sunset and drinks and food around our campfire.
