This is Oliver aka Door County Boy. He loves reading, sports, the outdoors, being in the water, playing board games and hanging with family and friends in Door County.

Door County Boy is on the water any chance he gets. One of the best and safest places to paddle board is at Europe Lake.

Oliver at Bier Zot

Door County Boy loves to eat out. He is a foodie and when he gets to order the Mac-n-Cheese with local veggies served on Monday nights at Bier Zot, he is in heaven!

If Oliver is not at the beach, on the water, in the woods or playing football in the park, you'll find him at Door County Ice Cream Factory eating Death’s Door Chocolate.

“A life is made up of a great number of small incidents, and a small number of great ones.”

Oliver playng Lacrosse

Back in Milwaukee, Oliver plays Lacrosse all year long and competes in the Spring season.

“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.”


Sometimes Oliver gets to bring a friend up for the weekend. It’s so incredible to be able to cut loose and run free on a gorgeous beach like Whitefish Dunes.

Oliver sells lemonade in a very cool lemonade stand down the street from our cottage (built by Matt Velguth from Gill’s Rock Petragraphs). To be honest, he’d rather be playing in the park.

Swimming is not reserved for summer afternoons only. We are often watching the sunset and Oliver seems to always find his way into the water.
