ENJOY SPECTACULAR SUNSETS ON THE BEAUTIFUL WEST SHORE OF WASHINGTON ISLAND! KC's Danish Log Cabin is a recently updated 1930's vertical log cottage on Washington Island, located in Door County, on the far NE tip of Wisconsin, in Lake Michigan.
150 feet of private, serene Lake Michigan shoreline is yours to enjoy, on the western bluff of the island. KCs Danish Log Cabin still shows its original "bones" as a vertical log cabin built by Jens Jacobsen, a popular island character. It was built in the 1930s to be sold to a fisherman (KC - coincidentally, my initials) who never paid his bill, and Jens turned it into a rental. In the early 70s, a large addition was added but left unfinished. In 2014, the room was finally completed, and significant updates and repairs were made to the original cabin. A large deck and stairway to the beach were completed a few years earlier. The only inland lake on the island, Little Lake, lies just across the road, along with the Jacobsen Museum, which is open seasonally and houses many of Jens Jacobsen's collections. A short distance North of the cottage, you will find a hiking trail on land purchased recently by the Door County Land Trust. Washington Island is a great place to canoe, kayak, hike, bike, and enjoy silent sports. Washington Island is accessible by a 35 minute car-ferry ride from the mainland. Discount is available for current Sievers School of Fiber Arts students; please inquire for details. Please note that I am unable to provide sheets and towels so you must bring your own, and that the island has no trash pick-up, so you are responsible for either taking it to the island landfill, or taking it home.
The 950 square foot cottage offers a roomy private bedroom with queen size bed, a twin daybed in a smaller room off the living room, and a twin window-seat bed in the living room. A small bathroom with shower is centrally located. The large, fully equipped kitchen contains a dining table, apartment sized refrigerator and gas stove. A charcoal grill is near the house, and there is an enclosed fire ring near the bluff over the water, for small bonfires. Firewood is provided near the ring. You will enjoy spectactular sunsets over a bedrock and cobblestone beach! Included are WIFI and a DVD player (but no TV or cable reception); Sleeps 4 adults. Available May – September. Smoke-free. Adults only. No pets. 5-1/2% state and county taxes are included in the rate, however, the local lodging fee of 5-1/2% will be included in the "Special Offer" you are sent with the confirmation.

Другие важные подробности
Washington Island is a beautiful and serene area. I know you will enjoy a quiet and restful stay, and will do whatever I can to make this happen!
This is a housekeeping cottage (please read!) with non-smoking accommodations for a maximum of 4 adults. I'm sorry, but no children under 18 years old, or pets are allowed. The bluff is precipitous. Because of the holding tank, and because water conservation is one of my priorities, I ask guests to respect this; renters are requested to please be conservative with the amount of water going down the drain, especially from showers. Guests are to bring their own towels and linens, toiletries and food. Be aware that when staying on an island, life might be a bit different than on the mainland. You must remove your recyclables and trash when you leave or some of the funds paid in your security deposit will be charged.
