On May 3, 2011, a fire destroyed the original Arbor cottage. On May 3, 2012, a new Arbor cottage was completed. The new cottage is more than twice the size of the original cottage and features a large and open floor plan, two bedrooms, a full bathroom and a laundry/utility room. It is ideal for a couple or up to six people looking for a very special cottage for their Door County vacation.
The great room/kitchen and master bedroom have vaulted ceilings with beams and skylights. The kitchen includes a french-door refrigerator, glass top range, microwave, disposal, dishwasher and large island with bar stools. The great room incorporates the fireplace from the original cottage. The view of the surrounding woods from the living room and master bedroom is spectacular.
Cottage extras include: satellite TV, WiFi, two large screen LCD TVs, a blu-ray player, patio, outdoor Weber grill and an outdoor fire pit. The cottage is also well stocked with books and board games.
The cottage exceeded almost all of our expectations. Impeccably designed and completed with quality craftsmanship, this is definitely a gem of a cottage experience. Tons of natural lighting, cathedral ceilings in the main room and master bedroom. Beautifully but minimally decorated. We loved cooking together in the kitchen and eating by the gas fireplace. The beds are super comfortable. We enjoyed our surroundings so much we never even turned on the two large flat-screen TVs! A half-dozen deer crossed through the wooded areas as we watched from the master bedroom one morning. We loved it so much we’re using it for inspiration for our dream home. We can’t wait to return!Jeff A.
