Here is the best deal in Door county!


Because of additional cleaning expenses, due to the virus and the shortage of employees in Door County, we've had to raise our rates for the first time since 2018, but the good news is, our rates are the lowest in the county, considering your going to be staying in a fully equipped country cottage on private property and you can get a significant discount for booking by the week.

To help minimize cancellations due to last minute family encounters with the virus, we suggest you rent our cottage for two, knowing you can bring along up to four additional adults and pay per person, per night plus tax for only the nights they stay overnight.

Our VRBO "additional guest" rates vary  between $35 and $50 per night, per person, plus tax, depending on the night of the week and time of year.

All overnight guests must be pre-approved by us and we limit overnight occupancy to no more than 6 adult. 

Please bring your own beach and bath towels, all other linins will be provided and please remember, we are a no pet, no smoking rental.

Also, while we have a fire pit and picnic area, well equipped with gas and charcoal grills, all wood must be purchased from our wood yard and "No wood can be brought in from outside Door County. We are doing all we can to stop the spread of birch elm disease.

We are active in Egg Harbor's projects designed to clean up the environment, to include promoting recycling and composing, while you're staying at our cottage.

Again! Thank YOU for considering Woldt's In-Town Farmette, please rent through VRBO and tell you friends and family all about the best deal in Door County.

Memories of growing up on a farm in Door County were too cherished not to share.  So, beginning in '83 we've spent summers raising a Dutch colonial barn, rebuilding a windmill, and renovating our property to recapture rural Door County traditions.  We offer an upscale, modern cottage for a large family or to be shared by couples. 

Visit in spring and you'll enjoy fresh asparagus from our fields, apple and cherry blossoms, and a chance to welcome the martins to their house south of the barn.  Summer offers singing birds in the morning, wild flowers during the day, and country quiet at night.  Fall brings leaves, festivals, and farm markets. In winter, we're closed to rest, rebuild, and ready our farmette for your next visit. 

Please come and enjoy our upscale effort to recapture the past. We are by far – “The Best Deal in Door County!”
