The Space150 feet of private, serene Lake Michigan shoreline is yours to enjoy, on the western bluff of the island. KCs Danish Log Cabin still shows its original "bones" as a vertical log cabin built by Jens Jacobsen, a popular island character. It was built in the 1930s to be sold to a fisherman (KC - coincidentally, my initials) who never paid his bill, and Jens turned it into a rental. In the early 70s, a large addition was added but left unfinished. In 2014, the room was finally completed, and significant updates and repairs were made to the original cabin. A large deck and stairway to the beach were completed a few years earlier. The only inland lake on the island, Little Lake, lies just across the road, along with the Jacobsen Museum, which is open seasonally and houses many of Jens Jacobsen's collections. A short distance North of the cottage, you will find a hiking trail on land purchased recently by the Door County Land Trust. Washington Island is a great place to canoe, kayak, hike, bike, and enjoy silent sports. Washington Island is accessible by a 35 minute car-ferry ride from the mainland.

Lake Michigan's beautiful Bay of Green Bay is to the West, with 150 feet of shoreline at the cottage's west boundary. There is a park to the immediate south; north are 4 neighboring houses before the road ends. To the east is the Jacobsen Museum and the Island's only inland lake. Getting AroundWhile biking is fun, you will want to have a car to get around the island, which is approximately 42 square miles in size.
