Recent Door County reviews
Beautiful, spacious home
"I have been coming to Door County for vacations since 1968 and have never stayed in such
a beautiful, spacious and extremely well maintained rental home. My large family of 13,
including 5 grandchildren were very comfortable for both sleeping and personal space.
The deck is big with a great view of Lake Michgan and just a short walk to a large, private beach. The location is great for walking to the various Jacksonport establishments ie; bakery, Mike,s, J J's, grocery and the park. Our June 2015 family vacation was very memorable thanks to this wonderful home as our base camp (with style). I would definitely recommend the Nelson House, especially for a large family."

"This condo and all the accommodations were more than expected! Everything we needed was there. It was very clean and comfortable and spacious. It was a very relaxing atmosphere, much like being in your own home. All the furniture and beds and pillows were very comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed. The location is ideal for visiting the heart of Door Co. The complex is very well maintained and the people there were friendly. We have come to Door Co for 18 years, and without a doubt, this condo would be our first choice for a return trip. It was so convenient to have a kitchen and ample space to relax with our adult children visiting with us. The complex met the needs of the diverse interests of our family. The owners were exceptionally helpful with everything! Excellent choice!"

"The Gingerbread Cottage was the perfect location for our girls getaway weekend! Clean and comfortable with all the amenities we could have imagined! A beautiful wooded setting while conveniently located to Fish Creek. I would definitely recommend this property and it's owner!"

"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."
