This place was perfection for our needs. It’s not too big, but big enough. Provided a quick overlook for different activities and areas, most importantly a local pizza joint! Very clean and beautifully decorated. Felt far enough away from city, but safe in the surroundings. Only recommendation, it would have been nice if there was a safe.

Thank you, Angela! We appreciate this feedback so much. So happy you enjoyed your stay with us!

Very quiet neighborhood. We saw deer walking in the woods when drinking morning coffee on the porch. Cabin was new, comfortable for the whole family and the kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals. Loved having a washer and dryer. Fantastic choice for a Door County vacation!

We are so happy to hear this! Thank you for your wonderful feedback on the home and location.

Thank you, Molly! So glad you enjoyed your stay!

The home was comfortable, clean, and quiet. The short walk to the end of the road led us directly to the lake, and made for a great way to start each day. We enjoyed sitting on the front deck, listening to birds, watching for deer, and sipping wine from one of the nearby wineries. This home is a bit off the beaten path, but that makes it a wonderful retreat for the kind of relaxing and refreshing vacation our family was looking for. We'd definitely stay here again!

Thanks for sharing your feedback about your stay at Europe Lake Chateau!!

Great location to explore the tip of Door County. It was so quiet and peaceful. I enjoyed family walks and morning runs. There is something magical when the forest meets a body of water! We explored the area around the house, and also visited Newport SP and Washington Island.  
House was clean, well lit, super pet friendly! They had everything you need in case you forget something. Beds were extra soft and comfy, wifi was great, kitchen well stocked. It was a perfect place to rest between outdoor adventures.  
Thanks for sharing your property!

Hi Erika, we are so excited to hear you had a wonderful stay at Europe Lake! Our team and owners will be so pleased to hear all your kind feedback. We hope to have the pleasure to host you again sometime!

It was a wonderful place. It's fresh and new and so very peaceful. We enjoyed sleeping in and sipping our coffee with the panoramic forest view. We adventured around the peninsula and Newport State Park during the day, then came back for streaming movies at night. The kitchen was perfect for cooking and being frugal during our stay. I said to my husband, "Can we live here forever?"! We hope to come back in the warmer months. Worth it!

We were overall pleased with our stay at the Chateau. Our only negative was that our passcode would not work when we arrived after dark, but we called the number provided and followed the instructions and received a quick call with a new passcode and we were able to enter the property. The cottage was lovely decorated, clean, smelled great and was definitely specious enough for the two of us and our brown lab. Shower was fantastic, the furnishings were great, and the kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook a few things. One suggestion might be to put a solid covering on the front door glass, as the sheer curtain hanging was see through. Even though this site was secluded, secure window coverings are important to us. Loved the towels and bath products and the comforters, sheets and pillows on the Bed. Overall, a very nice place to stay up north in Door County.

The home is beautiful and cozy, off of a super quiet street, and very close to Europe lake. We made a quick drive to Newport to see the stars - although you could easIily admire the stars from the home! I LOVED the special "dog supplies" in the home, even though our dogs did not come with this trip. We will definitely be back with our dogs next year!! One of my favorite rentals we've stayed in so far.
