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

VISITING DOOR COUNTY THIS WEEKEND?  Sister Bay is celebrating 100 years!! What do I love about Sister Bay?  Just about everything.  It's got a fantastic public beach, and fantastic public marina.  Great restaurants, a grocery store, gas stations, attorneys, dentists, doctors, great galleries, clothing shops, consignment shops....I can even buy a cell phone in Sister Bay.   These are things you sometimes take for granted in a rural community!!

Sister Bay’s first festival of the year on June 9, 2012 heralds the beginning of Summer and provides an opportunity for everyone to get outside and enjoy life. Jumpin’ June is a celebration for both the young and the “young-at-heart”& this year we’re celebrating 100 years of Sister Bay!
