Located just 9 miles off the western shores of Door Country sits Green Island, the largest privately owned island in the waters of Green Bay.

Its central location makes for easy boating access from Marinette, Green Bay, Sturgeon Bay and the entire Door Country peninsula.

While the rougher Lake Michigan waters draw thousands of boaters each season, the Green Bay waters surrounding Green Island provide calmer seas and warmer temperatures.

Majestic Door Country often referred to as the Cape Cod of the Midwest, lies nestled between the waters of Green Bay and Lake Michigan. It's Door Country's recognition and Green Island's close proximity to it that will help make this proposed development a huge success.

Named one of the top 10 vacation destinations in North American by Money Magazine, Door Country provides the ultimate seaside escape in the heart of the Midwest.

Door Country, with its year-round population of 28,000, attracts over 2 million visitors between May and October. Visitor spending in Door Country continues to increase yearly, having provided an economic impact of over $380,000,000 in 2013.

The 20 plus marinas within striking distance of the island coupled with the proposed ferry system operating out of both Sturgeon Bay and Marinette would provide island accessibility to boaters and non-boaters alike.

This conceptual plan for Green island will provide each visitor with his or her own avenue for escape. Whether it be the 10 year old with a passion for sailing, the 30 year old looking for the perfect wedding destination, or the 75 year old looking for a little R&R while sipping on a glass of wine blended from the island's own vineyard, Green Island has it all.

Wisconsin will now have its own mini Mackinaw Island all to its own.

Legal Description

The property is legally described as follows: All of sections Nineteen (19) and Twenty (20) in Township Thirty (30) North of Range Twenty-Five (25) East, except that part owned by the United States Government containing 0.79 acres, said land being known as Green Island in the waters of Green Bay, Marinette Country, Wisconsin.

Location

The island is located approximately 5 miles East of Marinette, Wisconsin and 10 miles West of Egg Harbor in Door Country. Navigational charts show that the property has a latitude of 40 degrees 04' North and a longitude of 87 degrees 30' West.

Green Island is easily accessible from Minneapolis, Minnesota, Chicago, Illinois and Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Egg Harbor, Fish Creek, Sister Bay, Washington Island, Chambers Island, Sturgeon Bay and Ephriam, which are all located in Door Country are within a distance of nine to twenty miles. Green Bay, Wisconsin is approximately 40 miles to the south of the island.

The island is generally level and the entire parcel is gravel soil.

There is no drilled well or septic system.

Description of Improvements

The site had an old, two-story building that was used as a lighthouse for many years. Only the foundation of this building remains, contributing no value to the subject property.

There is, also, a steel windmill-type structure that is used by the U.S. Government as a beacon for the sole purpose of guiding ships and boat traffic in the waters of Green Bay. This structure is located on U.S. Government land.

Committed to the Island Development

The owner has a vision of the island being enjoyed by many. Even though the owner’s goal would be to sell the island to a developer, the owner would not be opposed to selling it to a buyer for a private sanctuary.
