Monday, September 16: Annual Site Tour– Gustave’s 1887 Lodge and Grounds, presented by Annie Miller, Owner and Operator of Gustave’s Getaway. The tour begins at 4 pm sharp. Please arrive 15 minutes early.
You are invited to learn about life on the southern border of Liberty Grove! Tour the historic Gustave’s 1887 lodge and grounds, which have been lovingly preserved by Annie Miller, owner and operator of Gustave’s Getaway. This historic Door County log cabin rental was built by Annie’s great grandparents Gustave and Matilda Kodanko using native timber. It is situated on 80 acres of its original farmstead and was home to 4 generations of Miller descendants.
The property boasts old-growth forest trails, flowered meadows, rolling hills and an abundance of wildlife for you to explore. Extensive renovations were done to the log cabin in 2006. Annie invites you to step back in time during this rare opportunity to tour her iconic family and historic lodge located in the southeastern corner of Liberty Grove on pretty and quiet Grove Road.
