Door County Log Cabin
Door County Log Cabin, Gustave's Getaway
Open Year Around
Gustave's Getaway sleeps up to 6 adults. Carl's at the Farm sleeps up to 10 adults.
|This historic Door County log cabin is situated on
acres of its original farmstead. This Door County log cabin was built in 1887 by my
great grandfather using timber native to Door County. It has been home
to four generations of Miller's. The log cabin is on a quiet country
road, centrally located to the northern Door County communities of
Baileys Harbor, Sister Bay, Ephraim, and Fish Creek. It is minutes
from the shores of Green Bay and Lake Michigan.
|The log cabin was given a new lease on life through an
extensive restoration in 2005-2006. The Miller family invites you to
step back in time to enjoy Door County's historic past first hand. Our
historic home sleeps 6, has full cooking facilities, and all linens are
supplied. Our country estate beckons you to its old growth forest
trails, flowered meadows, rolling hills and abundance of wildlife. Open
year round, you are one with the fall colors, breathtaking sunrises and
sets, Northern lights, and jeweled winter beauty. Pets are
accepted on approval. Trailer parking is available.
Carl's at the Farm
The history of the German Settlement and the Miller farmstead moves forward one generation with the passing of my father Carl Miller in 2014 at the age of 90. Carl was the son who chose to live the rural life, stay on the family farm, and in latter years care for his aging parents Gust and Tillie who resided next door in the log cabin.
In 1954 after the birth of their daughter Ann, the need to construct a home for his new family was top priority. During construction the family resided with Tillie and Gust at the log cabin. Local craftsmen were hard at work using local lumber from Roeser’s in Sister Bay, windows were being hand-crafted in Brussels at Fabry Millworks, and Charlie Tishler (noted local builder) was busy constructing on site, what is now called "Carl’s at the Farm", my childhood home here on the farm.
Carl’s house accommodates up to 10 adults, and was completely renovated this past year. The home, features modern conveniences guests expect while maintaining its rustic country character. Three bedrooms, a full bath plus half bath, full kitchen, breezeway, living/dining room, a seating room in the third bedroom, and 10’x40’ covered front porch give larger groups room to stretch out and relax. A picnic area with grill and outdoor campfire pit with benches overlook the Sugar Maple woods out back. It’s the place to be for fall colors.
