With the vintage charm and updated comforts of home this cozy little carriage house renovated into a city cottage will surely hold a special place in your heart. Leave your car parked and enjoy a walk around the bridge and our three shopping disticts.

Bike rentals are available @ Bayshore Outfitters just across the Steel Bridge down Michigan Street for $24 /day

The space

This sweet little space has all the amenities of your own apartment/home just scaled down to fit into just shy of 400 square feet!

While the space is small and cozy and located in an alley, we have tried hard to create an oasis within the boundaries of our property line. You can relax by a fire or simple sit and enjoy night sky in the courtyard that is strung with colored lights and comfy chairs. Or take a stroll down to the waters edge (morning or night) just a few short blocks away. We encourage our guests to enjoy the courtyard by the fire ring and if we are down there, you are always welcome to join us.

Please note that the bedroom and bathroom are like tiny house living. The bedroom does fit a queen size bed and room to walk around on either side along with space for luggage and anything that needs to be hung. The bathroom has been referred to as a European sized bathroom. There is a full tiled shower with a seat to allow for more head room as the space is as unique as the old carriage house itself. Tall folks (6' +) just be aware, it may be more comfortable to sit and shower than stand.

Interaction with guests

We like to enjoy our courtyard too so if we are out there please feel free to hang with us. We want you to enjoy the vacation you like most so we can be around as little or as much as you'd like! We just live across the courtyard!

Other things to note

ADDITIONAL TAX COLLECTION UPON ARRIVAL:

Reservations booked prior to July 1st there is an 11% tax that will need to be collected upon departure.

Reservations booked after July 1st Airbnb only collects sales tax for our area, therefore a 5.5% room tax will still need to be collected upon departure.

We thank you for your cooperation as we know this is a bit of a hassle but know the City and local hosts are doing all we can to work with Airbnb to help stream line this tax collection process like other major sites and/or hotel establishments.

We came up from Chicago for a few days to celebrate a birthday and escape the city. Kelly and Elliot's spot was one of the most enjoyable places we've stayed at on Airbnb. They have put so much thought and love into the cottage. It's cozy, clean, and close to coffee, food, and (of course) gorgeous Door County sites. Although we didn't spend time there, the courtyard was a lovely private spot to relax, cozy up to a fire or BBQ. We also had an intimate, delicious dinner at Trixie's, a small, elegant restaurant close by in Ephraim. The city cottage was central to making this a memorable trip. We'd stay here again in an instant.

Charming little cottage-style apartment above the host's garage. Location just off the main shopping street, being slightly tucked away kept the noise level down making it feel like a weekend get-away-from-it-all. As the host did build, this apartment has really nice personal touches, including artwork and general construction. The bathroom was stellar with a beautiful "glass" door shower - felt a bit like I was at a spa. Full kitchen, sans a microwave, with a kitchen table perfect for eating, doing computer work, journaling. The living room space was comfortable with a couch and I believe pleather chair and TV access to Netflix and Hulu. The bedroom was cozy, though it did get a bit stuffy on the hot/humid nights. I appreciated the fan, and the luggage racks were a great feature in the bedroom. All-in-all, a successful stay in a bright apartment with good flow from room to room.
