About the property

Modern Studio Apartment in a Historic Setting, one Block from the Water

You will enjoy your stay in this newly and thoughtfully remodeled, super clean, welcoming unit located just a block from the water. Referred to as “The Postcard”, this first floor unit is part of the Historic Corner House (1867), and is outfitted with a king bed (New in 2015) and a queen sleeper sofa, gas fireplace, two televisions (a 32’ flatscreen and a 46” flatscreen), Apple TV for Netflix, bar sink, dining table, one bathroom, microwave, coffee maker (with permanent filter), under cabinet refrigerator/freezer (freezer has enough room for more than ice cubes), toaster oven, cutting boards, plates/bowls/cups/wine glasses/utensils, etc. to serve four. We provide linens and towels.

There is a front and back door entrance to this unit, with dedicated parking just outside the back door, or covered, free city parking located next door at the city parking ramp. Cable television, Apple TV for Netflix and free wireless access. Central air conditioning and ceiling fan. Nice lighting, contemporary décor, pretty windows. Surprisingly quiet and secluded (hidden right in the middle of town). Professionally managed; professionally cleaned.

The Third Avenue Historic District is on the National Register of Historic Places, and it is the center for retail, restaurants and culture in Sturgeon Bay. Within a 2 minute walk from the apartment are great restaurants, coffee shops, shopping, the Bay and even live theater at Third Avenue Playhouse.

About Rob Esposito

We are born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, and now call both Chicago and Door County 'home'. We are restaurant franchisees who love to travel in our spare time, and host guests when we are in Door County. We live next door, just say hi!

Rob Esposito purchased this condo in 2014

Why Rob Esposito chose Sturgeon Bay

Rob's family has been visiting Door County for over 50 years. We purchased our two condos shortly after purchasing a business in town, and so that we could spend more time with family that live in Sturgeon Bay year-round.

What makes this condo unique

This condo is one of the only rentals in Door County with sleek, modern furnishing. Seriously...just look through some of the other listings, and we think you'll agree :).

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for the nice review! A bike rack is a great idea. Locking your bikes to the back stairrail (which kind of keeps them hidden) was a good solution, and perhaps the best spot. I will make it known to future renters that this is an option. Thanks again!

Great location, great layout, great amenities

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the Postcard. The place was very well laid out . . . comfortable bed with hard and soft pillows for all types of sleepers, nice bathroom, kitchen with Kuerig, coffee cups, sugar, creamer, etc, and a great living room with cable and apple TV. It is very close to downtown Sturgeon Bay, and walking distance to many of the top-rated restaurants. Easy driving distance from all of the Door County wineries, restaurants, etc. We had a great stay and look forward to returning.

Perfect homey downtown apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was the perfect cozy place to stay downtown Sturgeon Bay. The apartment was within walking distance to may restaurants, shopping and parks. This was only a short drive to most of Door County's attractions. The apartment made us feel really safe and secure. We loved the added benefits of the kitchenette, outside patio, Apple TV, cable, WIFI, and board games. When we go back to Door County this will definitely be our first choice to stay.
