One of a kind gathering spot for friends or family. Also an ideal wedding venue!


The tastefully repurposed living space in a century old barn is gracefully appointed with all of the amenities. The Barnsite Retreat (formerly the Kewaunee Fine Arts Academy) is perched on the bluff overlooking the Kewaunee Harbor and Lake Michigan at the foot of the Door County Penninsula. The 9000 square feet of refurbished barn (in total) is situated within 4 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds.

What a great place. Super clean, large, yet cozy. As soon as you arrive you immediately want to explore the barn. How fun to have bedrooms in silos! The kitchen was well stocked with all of the things we needed to cook and cozy up....More

About the neighbourhood
Located on the north bluff overlooking the harbor city of Kewaunee. The massive Barnsite has been the dominant feature on this bluff for more than a century. The property adjoins Lakeshore Drive, a quite road, perfect for biking or tranquil strolls- either to town or out to the countryside and beautiful vistas.
Located within steps of the Ice Age Trail and the Lake Michigan coastline, its location is perfect for hiking and biking outings. The spectacular Kewaunee River and the boat landing are within a half mile- convenient for the canoe, kayak and fishing enthusiast. For those lured to the area by the promise of the best salmon fishing in the country, there is ample parking for your boat and trailer. A grill is also provided to prepare your freshly caught culinary delights.
