Relax and retreat at Highland Haven, a clean, new construction house tucked away in a quiet neighborhood yet within walking distance of downtown Sister Bay. This 5 bedroom, 3.5 bath house offers both luxury and convenience, and is equally comfortable whether having a quiet getaway or bringing a larger group of family and friends. A short drive puts you in the middle of everything that Sister Bay has to offer. Or, avoid the traffic and parking, and enjoy the 3/4 mile walk to Sister Bay's shops, restaurants, and public beach. Want to get away with the family, but can't quite leave the office behind? The basement queen bedroom doubles as a remote workspace. Check your email, then unplug and join your family and friends on your Door County adventure!

Thank you for submitting your review. It will be processed shortly!
The floor plan was excellent. The amenities were excellent.
The outside of the living room windows ( a focal point) were dirty. For the cost of cleaning, they should have been clean. I would lease this home again without question.
We thank you for sharing all your feedback with us, Allen. We take reviews seriously and ensure improvements are made accordingly. So happy to hear you had a great stay, and we would love to host you again sometime!
Summer family getawayby Dorn S.
We enjoyed everything about the stay. The house was very accommodating for all 11 of us. Location couldn’t have been any better. The quantity and spacing of beds and bathrooms was just what we needed. There are 2 gathering areas but we only used the upstairs one since we didn’t do much TV watching, but mostly games together around the table or coffee table. It was well supplied, neat & the laundry room was great so we didn’t have to go home to a lot of dirty laundry. Would definitely stay again.
Thank you, Dorn! So happy to hear you enjoyed the home and your stay. Hope to host you again sometime!
We really enjoyed our stay! Beautiful new house. Close to town. Great neighborhood!
Hi Jessica, thanks so much for your feedback! So pleased to hear this.
We are so glad to hear that you all had a great stay! Thank you for all your kind feedback, we appreciate it so much!
