Built by the Oscar Meyer family in the early 1900s, the Hermitage is a grand log home that combines history and luxury. Nestled on a 17-acre estate near Peninsula Players Theatre and Peninsula State Park, this home sleeps eight with ease. The master bedroom with king bed and master bath has an accompanying sunroom that overlooks birch woods. There are two other bedrooms and a sleeping loft, which share another full bath.

The Hermitage’s spacious living room is surrounded by windows which look out upon the surrounding birch woods. Inside, a fireplace, satellite television and VCR/DVD make the room perfect for cozy nights in. The Hermitage has a formal dining room with fireplace and a casual breakfast room surrounded by windows. There is a full kitchen with range, refrigerator, microwave and dishwasher. If you’d like to get out of the kitchen, enjoy your private forest of Door County birches and maples while grilling on the deck off the back of the house.

The Grand Room of the Hermitage is its defining feature. Its timber walls reach 25 feet up to the exposed log ceiling above. Over the past century, the Grand Room has been used for political meetings, parties, banquets and weddings. Whether you host your own guests in the Grand Room or use it as a spacious room of retreat, its warm wood and massive stone fireplace combine with its open spaces to make an inviting, relaxing room.

This beautiful home is heated and air conditioned, and has a host of other amenities to make your stay memorable. If you do wish to leave the grounds of the Hermitage, come to the Shallows Resort to play in the bay or the pool, ride a bike, or play a game of tennis. The Hermitage is also near Door County’s best parks, theatre and shopping.

The Hermitage is a home you truly need to see to believe. This estate has the features of a mansion and the atmosphere of a cozy home. With plenty of room for family and friends, the Hermitage is a lavish retreat with history and charm.
