This was a wonderful house just five minutes from town in a very secluded area. We loved sitting on the patio watching the lake, bird, and squirrels run about. The pier was a perfect place to watch sunsets (when the smoke from Canadian fires allowed). The fire pit seating area also provided space for all of us to congregate with an afternoon glass of wine. The house was as described and fit our group of 7 perfectly. This is a perfect spot for your Door County vacation as everything was provided and it was a great area for day trips up the peninsula. Check out the summer music events...we saw free live music every night!

Thank you, Billie! We are so pleased to hear this, thanks for taking the time to share your feedback. Hope we can host you again sometime!

We had a great stay. The place was clean and perfectly prepared for our visit. The house was well stocked in the kitchen, bedrooms, and bathrooms which made it very easy to settle in. The outdoor space was fantastic for games, dining, drinking, and bonfires. The sunsets on the lake were the cherry on top.

Thanks, Tyler! We are delighted to hear your kind feedback on the home and location! We are so pleased you all enjoyed your stay and hope we can host you again sometime.
