Gustave's Getaway

This historic Door County log cabin is situated on 80 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 firsthand. Our historic home sleeps 8, 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, dark skies 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 later 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 a 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, and was completely renovated in 2015. 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 a 10'x40' covered front porch give larger groups room to stretch out and relax. A picnic area with a grill and outdoor campfire pit with benches overlook the Sugar Maple woods out back. It's the place to be for fall colors.

Henson Haus

The Henson Historic Haus is located on 46 acres in the German Settlement. The home is a masterpiece of the old-world craftsmanship of Albert Becker. Albert built this house in 1923 for his family using native building materials featuring limestone, Silurian Sea coral fossils, and timber. In the early 1970s, Mary (Krueger) Henson purchased the home from Bertha Becker, the widow of Art Becker – Albert's son. The Henson Historic Haus blends modern conveniences with old-world charm. The home accommodates up to 10 guests and is pet-friendly.

This home features a living room, dining room that seats 8-10, and fireplace room with an enclosed gas fireplace. The kitchen is stocked with dishware/pots & pans and full-sized appliances and has a dining table for four. A full bathroom with a soaking tub is located adjacent to the kitchen area. An enclosed back entry room on the first floor contains a large pet crate, dog bowls, and a bench. A wrap-around covered porch with comfortable outdoor seating is accessible from the living room, kitchen, or front yard. There are 4 bedrooms and a full bath with a step-in shower on the second floor.

A campfire pit, benches, and picnic area with charcoal park grill are located adjacent to the back porch entrance.

400+ million years ago, the Silurian Sea, a result of the melting of glaciers, covered great areas of land. Door County was the bed of this sea, which brought about the first coral reefs and the initial appearance of the first freshwater fish.

The Silurian Sea corals are the primary building blocks of the exquisite fireplace surround. It is evident that each one was selected carefully by Albert with the intent of making a showpiece that would remain a testament to his craftsmanship.
