Great Locationby Emily K.
Quiet Getawayby Nell I.
Beautiful water front views, and a spacious lawn. located on a dead end road so no traffic noise and it felt safe to walk our dog and enjoy nature, even at night for a potty walk before bed. The house is simple, beds are comfortable and it was charming like my grandmas house but with updated features like WiFi. My family and I had a lovely time on our Door County getaway with this house as a convenient jumping off point to explore the area.
Thank you, Kiri! We are so happy that you and your family had a great stay. It was our pleasure to host you and hope we can do so in the future sometime!
