Wake up to the sound of the birds chirping and the sun just starting to peek over the horizon. Sit on the back patio with a cup of coffee and watch as the world comes to life. Kayak or canoe around the harbor as the sun rises, or paddle out to the middle of the harbor and just float. In the evening, build an outdoor fire in the fire pit and sit around chatting with friends and family, watching as the stars come out one by one. Toast marshmallows and make s'mores, then head to bed feeling exhausted from all the fresh air. In the morning, do it all over again. Life is good when you have a huge backyard, two kayaks, and plenty of yard games.


Comfortable Living & Dining Room for Everyone:

Imagine waking up in the morning and enjoying a cup of coffee while overlooking the bay. Or spending quality time with your family in the evening, playing board games or watching movies together. This is the reality at Sawyer Harbor Retreat, where an open space living and dining room ensures that everyone has plenty of room to relax. The huge windows let in natural light and provide stunning views of the water, while the cozy gas fireplace creates a warm and inviting atmosphere. The dining area is perfect for family meals, and the flat-screen Smart TV is perfect for entertainment. With a vaulted ceiling and plenty of board games, this is the perfect place to spend quality time with your loved ones. 


A Well-Stocked Kitchen:

The kitchen is the heart of the home, and at Sawyer Harbor Retreat, we have designed our kitchen to be a welcoming gathering space for families. Our well-stocked kitchen has all of the essentials you need to craft delicious meals, whether you're whipping up breakfast scones from Sunflower Bakery in Sturgeon Bay or grilling some fantastic brats from nearby Marchant's Grocery. And for coffee lovers, we have a coffee station where you can make your favorite cup of joe before starting your day. You have the option of a gas or charcoal grill, both of which are perfect for cooking up burgers and hot dogs on the patio. Whether cooking for a crowd or just yourself, our kitchen will make your stay at Sawyer Harbor Retreat more enjoyable.


Master Bedroom:

After a long day of exploring Door County, there's nothing better than sinking into a king-sized bed in our beautiful master bedroom. The south-facing windows offer stunning views of Sawyer Harbor, and the ceiling fan ensures you'll always be comfortable. Our ensuite bathroom comes complete with fresh linens and all the amenities you need to relax. And for our remote workers, we've got you covered with a dedicated desk and workspace. Whether you're looking to rest or get some work done, our master bedroom has everything you need.


Guest Bedroom

The guest bedroom is a cozy haven when it's time for bed. The queen bed is comfortable and inviting, with fresh, crisp linens and plenty of pillows. The room is on the first floor, so there are no stairs. And you'll always be able to find what you need, whether it's an extra blanket or a place to charge your phone. The full guest bathroom is adjacent to the guest bedroom.


Sleeping Loft

The upstairs loft is an excellent place for kids (or adults) to have a little more space to themselves. The loft sleeps up to six with two queen beds and a futon. Plus, it has a ceiling fan to keep you cool in the summer. Our board and card games and a few books are located in the loft for the days you choose to stay in the cottage.


Large Yard on the Harbor

With its stunning location right on the harbor, our expansive yard is the perfect spot for spending time with family and friends. Featuring a small dock and adjoining waterfront where you can push off in the canoe or kayaks, a sprawling lawn for outdoor games, and a cozy fire pit with comfortable seating for everyone, this space truly has it all. Plus, there is a spacious patio with an outdoor dining table and umbrellas, and two grills - one gas and one charcoal - for cooking up your favorite summertime meals outdoors. Whether you're looking to relax in the sun or get active on the water, Sawyer Harbor Retreat's outdoor space is ideal for making memories that will last a lifetime.


Heading Into Town

Sawyer Harbor Retreat is the perfect mix of secluded and convenient. Though you're only 12 minutes away from downtown Sturgeon Bay, the property feels nicely tucked away. It's also just a 5-minute drive to Idlewild golf course and 7 minutes to Potawatomi State Park, making it an ideal home base for exploring all that Door County has to offer. You'll appreciate the peace and quiet of the retreat, while still being close to all the best that the area has to offer. Come see why Sawyer Harbor Retreat is the perfect place to get away from it all.


Excellent Year-Round Fishing

If you're visiting during the winter, the ice fishing is fantastic as Sawyer Harbor transforms into an ice fishing haven. There's a public boat launch just a minute away with ample parking that provides year-round access to the water via boat in the summer or ATV and truck in the winter.
