Lily Bay Lodge

3 Bedrooms 3 Bathrooms Sleeps 8 Sturgeon Bay

Welcome to Lily Bay Lodge, hosted by Simple Life Rentals! 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 $50 per dog/per night, which is collected separately and approximately one week prior to your check-in date.

***This property is located in a quiet community with neighbors and is geared towards quiet family vacations. Due to the proximity of neighbors, we cannot accommodate parties at the property including bachelor or bachelorette parties, reunions, or other rowdy gatherings.

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!

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!
