  • Comfortable site for large group

    "We just finished a week at the Ben Lodge, and had a great time! There were 16 of us ranging in age from 20 to 59, and we had never been to Door County before. We were quite taken, and impressed with the large variety of things to see and do. The lodge appears to originally have been an inn, and one of the interior walls has a cutaway to show the log construction (which has since been built over with normal walls -- hence the cutaway).. It later was redone into a B&B, but now is rented as a single building. Seven of the guest rooms are one bedroom suites, four upstairs and three downstairs. Each has a large seating area (sometimes in an adjacent connected room) and a bathroom. One room has two queen beds, while the rest have one queen or king bed. Some of the rooms also have fold out couches. The eighth suite, which is upstairs, is a larger two bedrooms suite. It includes its own living room, small kitchen and a shared bathroom. The bedrooms in this suite each have a queen or king bed. All of the bedrooms have ceiling fans, as well as air conditioners. Downstairs is a full kitchen, eating area, TV lounge and large living room. The kitchen is well equipped for a large group, though a little short on large pots. All bedroom, bathroom and kitchen linens are provided, but they do ask that you bring your own beach towels. Everything was very clean and well maintained. The WiFi worked very well in most of the building, but struggled in parts of certain rooms which were directly behind the thick log walls from the router -- if you moved to a different part of the same room, it worked fine. TVs with cable connections and DVD players were in each bedroom, plus the TV lounge. Cell phone connections from multiple companies were highly variable, depending on the time of day. Out back are a lawn, charcoal grills and picnic tables shared with several smaller cabins, and extending down to a good sized wharf, which has a spectacular view of the sunset over Ellison Bay. A small grocery store is next door to the lodge -- the selection is limited, so you won't want to do your primary shopping there, but it's really convenient when you realize you're out of some basic food, or to pick up a newspaper in the morning. A coffee shop and a couple of restaurants are within a block in either direction."

  • Oh, so cozy!

    "This is the second time we have stayed in this home. It feels so cozy and comfortable, that it makes one feel as if they are in their own home! And, oh so very clean! The furnishings are impeccable and the home is well equipped. It's so very quiet here, and once you step outside the wonders of nature envelope you. We'll for sure stay again!"

  • Exceptional Stay & Exceptional Acommodating Owners! First Rate!

    "We can't say enough of our stay here and how extremely fortunate we feel to have come across such gracious hosts! My wife & I actually stayed at the Bayview Cottage (next door) and were treated to all the amenities you could ask for and more. This is a cozy get away that provides beautiful sunsets, great fishing, great walks and minutes from downtown Sturgeon Bay. The whole place is inviting, beds are comfy and we both were so relaxed here and we're sure anyone staying here will love it!"

  • Relaxing family vacation!

    "This home was more than comfortable for all of us. Which included my husband and I and our 2 children ages 4 and 1 1/2, my mom and dad and my 2 brothers. We had relaxing fires while listening to the waves, the kids loved to run on the beach and go on "adventures", my brother enjoyed going for kayak rides and all the men enjoyed fishing even though they didnt catch anything. The owners of the home are super friendly and seem like they want to make sure you have a nice time. So if you are looking for a relaxing time with great views of the lake this is it!"

Northeast Travel Tips

Northeast Wisconsin Vacation Rentals Make the Perfect Bases for Enjoying Beautiful Lakes and Rivers

Northeast Wisconsin is blessed with a host of natural resources. Situated close to Green Bay, Lake Michigan and the Great Lakes, which contain 20 percent of the earth's freshwater, make the perfect vacation destination for those seeking water-based activities. Summer activities are focused upon the many lakes and rivers in the area, while the cold winters provide excellent opportunities for skiing, ice fishing and other winter sports.

Northeast Wisconsin Lodging Offers Plenty to See and Do

The area around your northeast Wisconsin vacation lodging is a natural paradise for boating and fishing enthusiasts. It is the home of the smallmouth bass and some of the area's best fishing can be enjoyed on the Cisco chain of lakes. Walleye, musky, northern pike and a variety of panfish can all be caught from the dock or a small boat. Water sports including waterskiing and sailing are popular in the area, along with boating, tubing, Jet Skiing and swimming. ATV trails are also a great way to enjoy exploring the woodland trails.

Walking in the area is a popular activity, especially around the 26-acre Crawford Lake which has a maintained walking trail around it. It makes the most of the beautiful lakeside scenery. The area also has abundant wildlife opportunities. See fish jumping, deer grazing, red and grey squirrels foraging for food, and foxes trotting through the woodland glades. Loons, the short-tailed water birds which are found in this area, can often be seen diving for fish, and blue herons stalk the edges of the lakes. Porcupines and wild turkeys are a delight to discover and birdwatchers will be thrilled at the regular sightings of bald eagles overhead.

Winter activities are just as exciting with many opportunities for snowmobiling and other winter sports. Granite Peak is the place to enjoy downhill skiing in the area, along with ice fishing, skating and cross country skiing.

Wisconsin Vacation Rentals Are Well Located for Exploring the Area

Rib Mountain Ski Hill is a popular place for visitors as it has excellent amenities, great restaurants and plentiful shopping. Green Bay is a popular place to visit at the mouth of the Fox River in a sub-basin of Lake Michigan. It is home to the National Railroad Museum and the Neville Public Museum with exhibits of art, history and science. The town is also home to the Green Bay Packers professional football team which has won more titles than any other NFL team. The Hazelwood Historic House Museum is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and also well worth a visit.

The Historic District of Oshkosh has 27 historic buildings including a bank, homes, churches, schools, firehouse, courthouse, cemetery and observatory. The town is the home of the original Oshkosh Brewing Company.

The Best Time of Year to Visit Northeast Wisconsin Vacation Rentals
