Great stay

by MaryJane Steinthal K
We are a family with adult children and their spouses. We loved staying at the Roost. It felt more like home than a rental. It had all the amenities we could have wanted. Beds were comfortable, it was clean, and it a good location. We will be back!

Cute with all the amenities

by Jenna S.
This house was so cute! It had a full modern bar cart, coffee and tea bar, s’mores tray with skewers, and a well-stocked kitchen. The fire pit was well-stocked with wood. The location was just far enough from the main drag that you couldn’t tell it was peak tourist season! We couldn’t find a big grocery store in Baileys Harbor, so did end up going to Sister Bay, which was only 10-15 minutes from the house. Overall we had a great time!


Hi Jenna! We are so happy you enjoyed the home and the amenities! It was our pleasure hosting you and hope we can again sometime.

A great place to stay for the Father’s Day weekend! The place was clean and provided a wide variety of amenities for 6 people. It’s an easy 10ish minute walk to Bailey’s Harbor main stretch. Would recommend and stay there again!


Thank you so much for all your feedback to us, Ann!! We are excited to hear you enjoyed your stay and the wonderful location! We would be happy to have an opportunity to host you again sometime.

Nicely Furnished Comfortable House

by Terri s.
The house was very clean and nicely furnished. The owners put some thought into the decor. This house is within walking distance to Bailey’s Harbor, and in a quiet location. It’s also close to Maxwelton Braes and the Orchards Golf courses. Very easy to get to Egg Harbor and Sister Bay from this location.


Thanks, Terri!! We are so excited to hear you enjoyed the home and it met all your expectations. Hope we can host you again sometime.

We visited Bailey’s Harbor for a girls get a way weekend. This location was exactly what was advertised and so much more! Great amenities of home, no need to bring anything because “the roost” has it all, right down to the thoughtful touches in the coffee bar and the spa items for the giant soaker tub! This was located on a wooded lot with only a few neighbors near by. This was not in walking distance as this is located on a private road, however this location a very short drive into town to get to shops, hiking trails, restaurants, and Door County Brewery. We made “the roost” our home base to explore the rest of DOCO and then returned for the evening and relaxed by a fire. We would definitely recommend this location for your Door County getaway and stay here again in the future!

Hi Emilie, thank you for your kind feedback! We are so excited to hear you loved the home, amenities, and location. Hope we have a chance to host you again sometime!
