About the property

kitchen, dining table, queen bed, full bath, living room, patio, solitude

If you are seeking solitude, natural beauty, peace, tranquility, starry night skies, and easy access to the best that Door County has to offer, you have found what you are looking for. Welcome to Fernwood Farm. We offer two suites for rent on the first floor of our house, surrounded by acres of untouched northern Door County hardwood forest and meadows full of bright wildflowers, towering maples, white birches, swaying evergreens, singing birds, quiet deer, and curious raccoons.

Fernwood Farm is a unique place that lets you escape to a peaceful country setting and still be only minutes away from hundreds of fun-filled places, activities, shops, forests, beaches, water sports, antiquing, and much more.

We offer two cozy suites (the Apple Suite and the Cherry Suite) for rent in northern Door County, Wisconsin. Each suite includes a kitchen with dining table, bedroom, bathroom, living room, and amenities like a microwave, refrigerator, wifi, and satellite TV. The open floorplan works best for 2 adults per suite. A couch in the living room can sleep 2 more adults or children.

A patio door in each suite faces our meadow, our neighbor's meadow, our neighbor's neighbor's meadow, etc. You'll also have easy access to our woods that border our meadow a few yards away from the suites.

We're dog friendly. Our golden retriever, Buddy, welcomes friends (human and canine) to visit and stay with us.

Feel like a campfire? If the weather cooperates, you can watch the trees sway in the moonlight while you roast marshmallows. And you won't believe the stars at night. Watch for shooting stars and satellites, and see the Milky Way in all its brilliance.

When you're here, you feel worlds away from the life you temporarily left behind. Watch birds fly and wildflowers sway, hike our trails, see more stars than you've ever imagined. Read. Eat. Take a nap. Jog or bike. Take a short drive and see the sun rise over Lake Michigan on a secluded beach. While you're there, fish, swim, explore. Then go shopping and antiquing. Play mini golf. Start a puzzle. Take another nap. Finish the puzzle. Go to the candy store. Visit the original Door County fish boil (in our town). Ride the ferry to Washington Island. You get the idea.

You can hike in the forest or in the meadow at Fernwood Farm. Both the meadow and the woods offer miles of private hiking trails. Some trails are paved gravel, some are mowed grass, and others are rugged terrain. The low-traffic backroads in our area are great for bicycle rides. The Nature Conservancy's Mink River Estuary is a half mile away on County Road NP. And Newport State Park, home of some of Wisconsin's most natural, unblemished land, is about two miles away. Newport includes miles of trails, beaches on Lake Michigan, camping, and terrific sunrises over Lake Michigan at Europe Bay Beach.

If you are seeking solitude, natural beauty, peace, tranquility, starry night skies, and easy access to the best that Door County has to offer, you have found what you are looking for. Welcome to Fernwood Farm.
