Lily Bay Lodge
Welcome to Lily Bay Lodge! This 3-story home was built in 1988 and sits on a 2 acre wooded property with 200 feet of sandy Lake Michigan shoreline. It features 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and overlooks Lake Michigan so you'll experience breathtaking views from almost every room in the house. It also has a screened in porch that faces south and offers bug-free dining and the sounds of the waves hitting the shore add to the experience. The outdoor brick paved patio is on the lakeside and also has a table and chairs for outdoor dining. There is also a firepit on the beach for evening campfires. This home is located a short 10 minute drive to downtown Sturgeon Bay and is about 3/4 mile to Lily Bay boat launch.
We love our family pet dogs and welcome yours too. Your well behaved dogs are allowed with prior approval. This property allows up to 2 dogs up to 25 pounds each. There is a fee of $45 per dog/per night, which is collected separately and approximately one week prior to your check-in date.

We had a great time staying at Lilly Bay Lodge! The house was beautiful, spacious, clean, and stocked with all the things we needed. Mitch was an excellent host. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a relaxing weekend getaway. Beautiful lake views. Thanks Mitch. We can't wait to book again.
Thank you for your wonderful feedback, Jay! This means so much to us. We are glad you had a great stay and hope to host you again!
We enjoyed our stay at Lily Bay! The house was clean and comfortable. The homeowner was amazing, shared information about the property and all that Door County had to offer. We felt at home and will be looking forward to staying again.
Thank you, Kassie! This means so much to our team and owners. Hope we can host you again!
Lily Bay Lodge is exactly as represented and exactly what we were looking for: a waterfront Wisconsin retreat, with a traditional feel. LBL is clean, quiet and cool, directly on the water. Highlights include the patio and fire pit. We'll be back!
Thank you, David! We are so happy to hear the home met all your expectations from booking through arrival. It would be our pleasure to host you again sometime!
Clean home with lots of extras. Great kayaking and the evening s”mores at the fire pit was great fun. Really enjoyed our stay!
So happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Lily Bay Lodge!
Our stay was wonderful! The beach was very private and peaceful.
Thank you, Tracie! So happy to hear you enjoyed your time at the home and the beautiful beach! Hope we can host you again sometime.
It was a beautiful experience starting there before kids school open for school year. Cabin’s location was right at the beach and we had the feeling as its a private beach. We had an awesome stay and my younger son asked if we can extend the stay. We enjoyed canoeing at the Lake. I would highly recommend this cabin for your lifetime memories.
Beautiful cabin on the lake with gorgeous views. Bathrooms could use a little bit of updating but other than that we had a great time.
Truly an amazing home, felt right at home, all amenities as described. The lake was excellent, felt very welcomed!
The reason to be here in this lovely bubble on magnificent Lake Michigan is the quiet solitude, seemingly isolated location yet just minutes from Sturgeon Bay. The lake is a different phenomenon every day & shapes your experience. It’s magnetic!
Just the loveliest home, truly has a unique personality and homey feel. The lake was amazing needless to say, all amenities available, we had a blast!
