470 Europe Lake Road, Door County:  

The Quintessential Lake Cottage


It seems as though every year I am lucky enough to list something that has been in the same family for a very long time.  In Door County, we don't get waterfront turnover very often.  Waterfront properties tend to stay in the same family for generations at a time. 


Last year, we were lucky enough to have two cottages on Pebble Beach, which sold almost instantly (I ran into one of the cottage's owners this week and they are loving their Sister Bay waterfront home!).


This week, we are concentrating farther north, on Europe Lake, between Ellison Bay and Gills Rock--and I have a hard time deciding which Door County inland lake is my favorite:  Europe Lake, Kangaroo Lake or Clark Lake.  They all have their distinct differences.  I really love the peace and quiet of Europe Lake, with one side of the lake having no homes (that area part of Newport State Park, actually).  So, as my readers know, it is rare when I list or sell something around or on Europe Lake--not much comes on market!  I can count four sales of mine in 17-plus years.
