Living highlights include plenty of windows that brighten up the formal dining room (with fireplace) and casual breakfast room. Features of a mansion too - the Grand Room has warm wood timber walls that stretch 25 feet to the open log ceiling - guests have used it for political meetings, banquets, and weddings. Spacious with a large stone fireplace.

Egg Harbor is just three miles away. Peninsula State Park (with natural sand beaches) is 10 miles.

Bob, As always  going to Door County is a Huge Chocolate cake, thank God for all the places I can sit outside. What makes it for me is the Icing of the Shallows - its serenity, beauty and the people.  Thank you and yours, will be back next year #4.   Regards, George and Cindy 
Dear Erickson Family, What a glorious home you have and a truly magical piece of land. We feel so fortunate to have found the Hermitage and to experience this beautiful space. We will cherish our time here forever… Thank you so much! Sue & Sandro and all our daughters
