"My sister-in-law and I booked the Stuga for a long weekend. It was the perfect place for us! Barbro, the owner, welcomed us as we were sitting in the yard enjoying the view. The cottage is beautifully furnished and has everything one could need. The grounds are beautiful with plenty of places to sit and enjoy the great view of Green Bay. There are tables and chairs right on the rocks as well as a fire pit to enjoy. We are already planning another visit next June!"

"I spent the week up there in July and had the best time! A couple thoughts:
Lake Buckatabon - We spent a whole day wakeboarding and skiing in lower Buckatabon and we were the only boat in the area. Quite a luxury for July in Eagle River. They have a nice little sandbar/island in the middle of the lake that works well to park the boat and have a couple drinks, swim and throw a football around. The fishing was great too- we caught tons of bass, a couple northern and some pan fish.
The cabin - The owners do a great job keeping up with the property and it shows. They told me the porch on the back was new this year. We spent hours on the porch looking out at the lake, drinking coffee, eating. The porch gets great sun all day, from sunrise to sunset. We had 7 people and everyone slept in a comfortable bed and the kitchen was large enough for big group meals. Firepit and grill outside. Lots of grassy area for yard games and the private boat launch and dock is quite a convenience.
The area - If you're looking to get away.. you can't beat a vacation to the north woods of Wisconsin. I took a canoe ride starting at Lake Buckatabon and down the Wisconsin River for about 3 miles and it was absolutely breathtaking. Bond Falls, about 30 minutes away is a beauful waterfall to hike around. Good golfing. If the ladies need to shop, head into town. Great restaurants too.
I'd certainly recommend Kern's great Escape (Just don't steal my week in July, I'm hoping to go again next year.)"

"In response to the September 15, 2015 review. We are sorry that our guests were unhappy
The heat and hot water were fixed as soon as we were informed that they were not working. The toilet seat was also replaced as soon as we were made aware that is was broken. Our guests were there for 2 nights by the time we found out about the heat not working we took care of it in a timely manner.
As most people that live or stay in Door County know, the water is heavily laden with iron. The iron stains the toilets and tubs. We do clean with an iron remover. The Lodge is cleaned regularly during the season (before and after each new guest), but we do not get a full de-ironing treatment until the end of each rental season. We do have iron filters as well as a soft water unit filled with iron tablets.
The property is continuously being updated. We have done much remodeling in the 3 seasons in which we have owned the property. We have put in new flooring, cabinets, countertops, appliances etc... The entire Lodge was repainted 24 months ago. The exterior of the property has been resided and a new roof put on 30 months ago.
We are continuously improving and upgrading The Lodge. We have a The Lodge professionally cleaned and the linens and towels professionally cleaned. We welcome you to comeback and try again. Again, we are sorry you were dissatisfied. Thank you."

"Lovely home! Very relaxing. Great kitchen space for cooking. The bathrooms were spacious and shower was like a spa! The location was ideal. Shopping in uptown was fun and just a short drive from other quaint areas in Door County. We highly recommend The Ballard House."
