Visiting Door County in 2014: the Cape Cod of the Midwest

Real Estate Agent with The Kellstrom Ray Agency, Inc. (Est. 1948)

Planning a trip to Door County, Wisconsin in 2014?  Each year, more than two million visitors like to visit and claim this jewel as their own---even if it's only for an afternoon on a gas-tank getaway.  Planning a Door County vacation is the first step in falling in love with Door County and, eventually, purchasing a Door County home or condominium.


With over 300 miles of scenic shoreline dotted with bustling harbors and quiet coves (more than any other County in the United States!), Door County offers a wealth of water-based recreation year-round.  Combine that with five state parks (again, more than any other County in Wisconsin), more than a dozen county parks, ten lighthouses (several open to the public), and a huge emphasis on the arts, recreation, dining, silent sports and entertaining, and you have truly discovered the “Cape Cod of the Midwest”.


This morning I had the privilege of visiting an area east of Sister Bay, WI called North Bay; an inlet off of Lake Michigan.  With the late sun rising over the ice, it looked like millions of diamonds were sparkling along the water. 


With low rates and high inventory, it's a good time to explore.  Every year, we assist hundreds of Buyers in locating a little “piece of the Door” that is uniquely suited to their own special circumstances, as well as assist our Sellers who are transferring property in a competitive market.  Door County features the largest home in the State of Wisconsin (for more information on homes for sale in Ellison Bay, WI check here).


From a cozy cabin in the woods, to a grand home on the shore, to vacant acreage with native wildflowers that will one day become the site for your dream home, we offer all of these things and more. 


If you are planning a Door County vacation in 2014, spend an extra hour determining how I can assisting in making your Door County dreams a realitySearch for Door County homes and condominiums for sale here. With inland lakes, Lake Michigan and the Bay of Green Bay beckoning, get ready to make 2014 the year you claim a piece of the Door as your own.
