The Refuge Log Home is nestled in a beautiful, wooded 5 acres across the street from Lake Michigan. Listen to the waves from the home or take a few steps down the road to our private property with 100ft of shoreline. Enjoy the water from an Adirondack chair, a canoe or kayak, or wade right in! Have fun exploring the woods. Deer are frequently seen. if you're lucky, you might spot a turkey family, an owl, or the newly discovered porcupine that occasionally makes an appearance. Spend your evenings around the fire enjoying the incredible stars. The home is located on a peaceful dead-end street with light car and foot traffic. It is less than ten minutes to downtown Sister Bay, a wonderful town with fun shops and great restaurants to explore and enjoy. Sand Bay Beach is just five minutes away and the villages of Baileys Harbor, Ephraim and Fish Creek are close too. These two properties, woods and water, are the perfect getaway for family and friends!

More Information

The open floor plan is spacious and comfortable. The whole family can gather around the stone fireplace. There are many cozy places to retreat to for some quiet relaxation. Enjoy the outdoors from the front porch or the screen porch in back. Or grab a book from the bookcase and head up to a window seat in an upstairs dormer for some quiet reading.

The home has four private bedrooms, one on the main floor with a King size bed and three more upstairs. The large bonus room with three sky lights over the garage is perfect for movie nights or reading. The built-in bunks in the bunk room are always a thrill for kids! Please note that the 2nd floor bunk room does not have doors to close it off from common areas.

The Refuge is a true retreat any time of year. Whether it’s enjoying the long days of summer on the screen porch, the crisp fall nights around the campfire, hunkering down on a cozy wintry night by the fire, or spotting the first sounds and sights of spring, we are sure you will enjoy your stay.
