Wonderful and relaxing Cozy Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed 5 days of relaxation and early spring hiking during our stay in this Cozy Cabin. It was fabulous! The location was convenient to access activities, but the area was also so quiet and peaceful. We enjoyed watching the birds, and our dog Zeke saw deer up close for the first time. The cabin itself is very clean and comfortable. You can tell that Shelly and Kurt put a lot of love and attention to detail into this cabin. We look forward to staying in the Cozy Cabin again!

Perfect winter get away!

  • 5 of 5

The cozy cabin the woods was the perfect spot for a winter weekend away from the city! The cabin was set up perfectly, lots of room for 2.The cabin is stocked with games, movies, & the kitchen is well equipped to cook from home. The property sits on a quiet, wooded area, which made for nice walks in the morning after coffee w/all the cute, little squirrels & chipmunks! Stargazing at night was gorgeous. There is a ton to do around the area, so be sure to check out all that nature has to offer.

Shelly & Kurt were extremely helpful, responsive, & offered great tips for things to do. We needed very little, as everything was there for us, but when we had a question, they had immediate answers.

A few things to keep in mind: best to bring grocercies as stores close early in the evening during the winter, bring your own towels, & for wifi during the winter a hotspot.

I would recommend cozy cabin in the woods to anyone looking for the perfect winter get away! I would love to return in the summer! Thank you, Shelly & Kurt!

Cozy is right!

  • 5 of 5

Adorable cabin in a quiet yet ideal Door County location. Cabin has everything you need and more. We just stayed here over the harsh winter cold snap and could not have been more snug and warm. Enjoyed staying in and using the lovely updated kitchen. Nice bonus, the internet speed/connection was fantastic here and they are dog friendly too. Personable owners left a nice welcome treat and note with contact info as well as a binder with all the house details. We would definitely stay here again in the future.

The Cozy Cabin is just that! A wonderful place to relax between the holidays. There are plenty of games and DVDs (good ones, too!) to keep guests entertained in between outdoor activities. The cabin is very clean and the beds are comfy. The kitchen has plenty of utensils and dishes. Shelly and Kurt thought of everything...they even had a little Christmas tree for us! You absolutely can’t go wrong by choosing The Cozy Cabin in the Woods.

Cozy Cabin In the Woods is Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently spent the Thanksgiving weekend on a Door County getaway, and stayed at the Cozy Cabin In the Woods. The cabin was perfect, with great amenities, and wooded views out of the windows that made you really feel the solitude and serenity of a Cozy Cabin. we will definitely come stay again, and tell our friends.

Woodsy and Cozy!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a special time at the cabin. It was very comfortable and relaxing and plenty of room even for our family of 6! The whole cabin is tastefully decorated and reflects the beautiful woods outside. The location is very convenient, yet it's tucked away to give just enough seclusion. We all agree, this is the best cabin we've been to in Door County… we loved it!!
