Perfect winter hideaway
"Perfect setting for a quiet family getaway for Thanksgiving. We loved exploring the lake shore and playing in the snow with the kids before returning to relax by a roaring fire.
The house is beautiful, even nicer than we expected !
Janet was great, very helpful and responsive we are looking forward to a return visit soon 😊"

Perfect Family Cottage - This place was awesome!!!!
"My family and I stayed at the Jorns Harbor Retreat the last week in July. This place was just perfect for our family of 5. We have a baby, 3 year old and 5 year old. We love the set-up of the cottage with the three bedrooms and two pack-n-plays were great. Like the other reviews said, Donna and Harvey have thought of everything. The place was very clean. The kitchen was fully stock with dishes, silverware, baking items, spices, trash bags, dish soap, dishwasher soap, and little baggies, etc. This was so nice not to have to bring all of these items. Also the place has a washer and dryer. I didn't think we would need this, but we used it every day. It was so nice to clean our towels after being out on the beach. We also came home and had no laundry to do which was great. The bathroom was also in a great location right next to the back door, so we could come off of the sandy beach and put out kids right in the tub to get cleaned off. I was a little worried about no A/C since it gets so hot in the middle of the summer, but it wasn't a problem at all. All you had to do was open your windows at night and a cool breeze would come off the bay. Also each room had a ceiling fan which was great. This place is in a great location on the Bay side just north of Sturgeon Bay and just south of Egg Harbor. All the action is on the Bay side and the water is a lot warmer which is great for young kids. It about 5-10 minutes away from Walmart and a grocery story which was nice and 15 minutes from Egg Harbor and maybe 30 minutes to Fish Creek. This place had the most beautiful sunsets every night. We loved watching the sunset and roasting S'mores on the fire. They provided all the wood you need for the fire and they have a great dock with a ladder for the little ones to jump off. They have a beautiful sandy beach and it is sandy all the way out past the dock for at least 15 ft. It is pretty sandy all the way around. May young girls thought it was so cool that they could touch in the deep end past the dock since there was a sand bar and it shallow. The shoreline is in a bay area which can help block some of the wind it if is coming from the North. They also have a paddle boat which is awesome for going out fishing even though there isn't much fish b/c it is so sandy. They did catch a sheepshead which was fun. They have a nice picnic table to eat outside and a great porch area.
See next review since out of room with just too much good things to say."

"This house was really nice. We went with our family on my husbands side for the long Memorial weekend. My husband and I and our 2 daughters 1 & 4 years old. My brother and sister in law and their 5 month old baby. My other brother and sister in law and their 2 daughters 11 & 14. My husbands parents in their 70s. The house is directly on the lake with a beautiful view. Ample space for everyone to spread out or gather. Loved cooking in the fully equipped and stocked Kitchen. Very close to activities.
The basketball hoop, and outdoor space is great. There was tons of nets out and that was a downfall. Not sure if they just come with the lake or if the grass could be treated? There is a hot tub on the screened in porch that is not advertised so we were surprised it was there and then discovered it was empty and could not be used. That was sad. The owners explained why and it totally makes sense with liability and maintenance but if felt like candy dangled in front of your face that you couldn't eat.
We did some winery tours and went to the state park, out to dinner at Shipwreck and lunch at the Cookery. The Door 44 and Stonesthrow wineries were a disappointment. Door 44 wines were too fruity for most of our liking and Stonesthrow said our group of 6 could taste together because we didn't have a reservation and was rude about it. Peninsula did a good job of being welcoming and had a wider selection of wines.
The house had everything you needed for a good getaway. The set up is perfect for blending a big group, aside from the bugs and the hot tub my only other complaint is that it was to have 1 king and 3 queens but the bed in the blue room seemed to be a full instead of a queen. Also having to wash all the towels before we left was annoying considering the price of the rental. Small details but overall impressed with this rental. It is much more then a cottage."

"This was my third trip in Door County in the past year and this boathouse was the best place we have stayed at! Debra was excellent to work with and a great communicator right up to the time we opened the door. Thanks Debra for sharing your boathouse with us!"
