Thenell's Beach House
Welcome to Thenell's Beach House, a newly remodeled two-story waterfront home just steps away from the water. The Beach House is conveniently located between Sturgeon Bay and Egg Harbor, approximately 5 miles north of Sturgeon Bay and 1 mile south of George Pinney County Park (Stone Quarry) and public boat launch. Gorgeous views of the bay await you in this home that sleeps 6. Enjoy the sunset views over the bay from the home or the large deck overlooking the water. You will have panoramic views of Potawatomi State Park and the Sherwood Point Lighthouse. You can hear the waves lapping the shore as you cozy up around the firepit. There is plenty of space for the kids to run and play outdoors. It has a semi-private beach shared with Thenell's Cottage next door.
There is a bar and grill within walking distance from the cottage. Enjoy a tranquil getaway just minutes away from the many attractions Door County has to offer!

Fabulous place to stay, enjoyed the peace and quiet and view of the lake.House was well equipped and modern. Ideal place to stay while visiting places around that area as minimum traffic. Also ideal for cycling which my husband thoroughly enjoyed…very little traffic if any on the minor roads....
Great location and lovely lake view. We enjoyed the house and the lake view very much. The internet and cable both went out and the staff at The Simple Life did their best to try to get the issues resolved (we realize it is not in their control). Best to believe the description about this in the listing. Overall we truly had a great stay.
This comfy cottage was very spacious for two and could easily accommodate a family. The kitchen had everything we could have wanted. Beds, towels, pillows were all nice and new. The location was an excellent jumping off point to explore the whole peninsula. The night sky was free of light pollution. It was very quiet. Being out of the city but close enough to run into town for a bite or to shop was very convenient. Also convenient? A short walk to Birmingham's for a drink or a nice meal. Great stay, all around!
Brand new and so cute and clean. Could use some extra towels and kitchen supplies. (There were only two coffee mugs) The views of the water and porch were amazing. Great place.
We really enjoyed our stay! House was very nice. Close to boat ramp for our fishermen. Liked beach. Other house didn't realize we shared it with them. We loved the sunsets we saw! Overall it was great!!!
