• Finding Lily Pad… the cottage is hidden from the street, so when you see the small green roof on the shed next to the sidewalk, you have arrived, park there on the street. The stairs leading to the cottage are just to the right of the shed. The address is 324 N. Joliet Ave., Sturgeon Bay

• Wi-Fi login information is written down on the upper shelf of the entertainment center.

• A/C  Use the remote thermostat located on the counter to the right of the refrigerator. DURING SUMMER MONTHS, WEATHER PERMITTING, IF YOU CHOOSE TO OPEN THE WINDOWS, PLEASE TURN OFF THE AIR CONDITIONING. 

• Heat- There are two heating systems in the cottage: The best one to use in the Cottage is the heat pump with a remote control in the blue dish on the counter. The baseboards have two thermostat controls, one near the turquoise chairs and one in the bathroom. If the baseboard heat is on, please be mindful not to allow anything to touch the hot baseboards. The ceiling fan helps to circulate the heat down from the vaulted ceiling. The place will warm up quickly when you adjust the temperature setting(s). 

• Please close all windows before leaving the suite unattended. Storms in Door County can occur unexpectedly and will damage the interior. 

• Ceiling fan on/off switch is located to the left of the door, the middle switch.

• Cushions for the outside dining table and beach towels are in the bench of the bay window. There is also a folding work station for those who are working remotely.

• Hand and shower soap is provided, but please bring your own shampoo. When you are in the lavatory, please use the exhaust fan (on a timer). 

• The hair dryer is located in the bathroom vanity drawer.

• Please use the dark colored wash cloths / or make-up removal wipes rather than the white towels.

• Because the cottage is so close to the water and below street level,  there is an ejector pump for the cottage’s waste water. The pump is NOT capable of handling things like sanitary napkins, tampons, or other solid items; please use toilet paper only.

• Coming back to Lily Pad late? Turn on the outside and door lights before you leave to see your path back to the cottage.

Check-out guidelines: Treat the cottage with love and respect. I expect that the cottage is left in the condition it was found. There is a garbage can and a recycling can in the yard to the right of the stairs as you walk toward the street. Dishwasher tablets are below the sink. The coffee pot can go in the dishwasher. You don’t need to stay until the cycle is complete; we will put the dishes away. Check-out time is 10AM. Please text 920.493.6000 when you leave so that we may begin the cleaning process for the next guests. 

• Thank you for being my guest and in advance, for  leaving Lily Pad Cottage, Door County so nice and tidy! It was my pleasure to host you and I hope you had a great time. It would really mean a lot to me and help grow my business to find great guests such as yourself, if you would give me a 5 STAR review on the Facebook and Google pages.
