  • On Lake Michigan's sandy, swimmable beachfront

The Viking cottage is a waterfront, rustic, quaint wood-slat cottage set between the trees in a small, private clearing right on some of Lake Michigan's most beautiful and swimmable, private lakeshore. 2 night minimum-except between Memorial and Labor Day weekends when we rent by the 6 night stay only, with Saturday arrival and Friday departure.This six-person cabin features a lofted sleeping area that overlooks an open-concept great room. This includes a cozy sitting area with two plush sofas and a deep reading chair gathered around a traditional stone hearth. Windows on two sides invite natural light into the space and offer a view of the woods and the nearby shoreline.

A custom staircase leads to the upper-level sleeping area (furnished with two full-sized beds), while a unique arched doorway leads to a fully equipped kitchen. Guests will enjoy the ample counter space for preparing home-cooked meals. Dishes, utensils and cookware are provided. The single bathroom has a tub and shower. A private bedroom is furnished with a third full-sized bed.

Viking Cottage’s yard is grassy and flat, with an outdoor charcoal grill and off-street parking space for up to two vehicles. It is an easy walk from the cabin door to the edge of Lake Michigan — don’t forget to bring your swimming suit and beach towels! This lake house is a quiet, romantic escape set to the tune of the tide and decorated with a night sky full of bright stars.

Unique Features

As a guest at the Viking cottage, you’ll have full access to a clean, sandy beach just a short flip flop across the one-lane road. Make memories swimming, combing the beach for stones and shells, fishing off the pier, grilling or chasing fireflies.

The Viking enjoys a beautiful clear view of Lake Michigan, a short flip flop from the cottage. You'll have access to lounge chairs and an outdoor charcoal grill to make the most of the pleasant, shaded property. Or, if you’re interested in some sun.. or stars, there are 2 picnic tables, as well as a shared fire pit (byo firewood).

Cell reception along the lake (and much of Door County) varies based on your carrier. Most guests get calls and texts somewhat reliably, with spotty data, but some don't have much or any coverage until they're back on the main roads.

Last season wifi was finally available in the area. We do have it, but cannot guarantee it will work for everything as reception strength/coverage varies depending on where you are on the property. It allows for Googling, emailing and messaging apps (Messenger, Snapchat, etc) but continuous streaming or Skype, FaceTime, etc type activities can be hit or miss. We don't want anyone to be surprised and want to make sure we're a match :)

Things To Do

Lake Michigan is the big draw for tourists looking for recreation opportunities around Sturgeon Bay. The nearby beach is across a one-lane road from Viking Cottage, with a gradual, sandy slope to the water’s edge. Visitors can swim in the clear water, launch kayaks, build sand castles, or just enjoy the sun and fresh air.

About a quarter mile north of the cabin, you can pay a visit to the Sturgeon Bay channel, where you can fish and watch the passing water traffic from the public pier. There is minimal traffic around the cabin, so it’s safe to walk and jog in the area. Guests are welcome to bring boats and snowmobiles, but remember the roads are narrow.

Hikers will find plenty to explore, such as the Sturgeon Bay Ship Canal Nature Preserve up the road or the Door County Land Trust with its more than 445 acres of scenic shoreline, sand dunes, aged forests and open fields. Trails range in skill level from easy to moderate and provide a stunning view of two local lighthouses.

If you have kids (or even if you don't!), don't miss The Farm-a hands on petting zoo and historical gem, just a few minutes north of Sturgeon Bay.

About the Owner/Manager

The three original properties that became Firefly Cottages were built by my father and grandfather in the 1950s. These charming, vintage homes enjoy a view of the water, settled across a quiet road from the sandy shore of Lake Michigan.

My goal is to provide you with a comfortable, homey vacation home with lots of character — a place where you can make memories that will last. Bring your adventurous spirit and enjoy a traditional Door County getaway! And feel free to contact me (your host, Irene) for restaurant and activity recommendations.
