Come experience the waterfront and the quiet, small town of Gills Rock which is at the Northernmost tip of the Door Peninsula. A small, quaint town, Gills Rock has beautiful shoreline, a boat launch along with Charter Fishing, Maritime Museum and childrens playground. The Shoreline Restaurant, Charlies Smokehouse (for Smoked fish – the BEST!, ice cream), coffee shop, and gift shops are a leisure walk or one minute drive. The passenger ferry to Washington Island is docked in Gills Rock or the Washington Island car ferry is a few minute drive to Northport. Stay at this family home to relax – inside, at the water watching/listening to the solitude of the area or outside around the fire pit. This large home with some water view comfortably allows up to eight with preapproved pet. Three bedrooms to sleep six and trundle bed to sleep two with three full bathrooms. There is central air, wood burning fireplace/furnace for your comfort. The well-equipped kitchen lends to eating at home with you, family and friends.

Handmade Leather Bags
The Turtle Ridge brand is best known for signature limited edition handbags from the ﬁnest domestic and Italian leathers. Mary Ellen designs a range of leather bags from briefcases to small accessories, which are beautiful, functional and durable. Choices range from classic to contemporary.
Turtle Ridge has chosen artisan lines in luxurious alpaca, cashmere, silk and linen. Timeless, functional pieces that span the seasons compliment many of the bags, belt and accessories made in the studio. Handmade jewelry and hats complete the ensemble and your personal style. Trunk Shows of exceptional artists and craftspeople are scheduled throughout the season.
With 40 years of experience Mary Ellen has brought her love of leather and stones to a new level in mixed media artwork. Her work is often commissioned for client’s homes and ofﬁces here in Door County or elsewhere. The subjects vary from abstract to subjective themes, evoking the preciousness of the environment.
Mary Ellen shares her studio and knowledge with others, by offering Art Camps scheduled throughout the year. Participants are walked through the creative process of making a bag or item with expert help. No sewing skills are required. Private family and friend Art Camps can be scheduled.
Turtle Ridge is situated next to the Mink River Nature Conservancy, an inspiration to the work and visitors alike. Turtle Ridge is a member of Ellison Bay Arts and opens their studio for demonstrations, visiting artists and special activities during the Spring and Fall Art Crawls.
