"Lovely, light, airy, spacious cottage on a dead end road. Beds were very comfortable and all slept better than they do at home! A few issues but we found Janell very quick to respond and appreciated her efforts to make right. We found that there is no cell phone service for Tracfone and Verizon at the cottage and surrounding towns. Wifi was good at the cottage and enabled the email communication we needed. As other reviewers have mentioned, the front porch was a big hit for all! We had our medium sized dog with us and he enjoyed the large front and back yard and sitting on the porch with us. We went to a number of places to eat and found we could take him with us, as long as there was outside seating. We were disappointed that dogs were not allowed on any of the 'beaches', which we can understand from a hygiene point of view, but we wanted to see what his reaction would be when he tried something deeper than a puddle for the first time! We liked eating at Shipwrecked in Egg Harbor, The Ice Cream Factory in Sister Bay, The Vikings Bar and Grill for a 'fish boil' in Ellison Bay, (don't rely on times and days given by the tourist information, call The Vikings Bar and Grill instead), Al Johnson's Swedish Restaurant (they have the goats grazing on the roof) in Sister Bay. Visited Pennisular State Park and played miniature golf at the challenging Red Putter. Thoroughly enjoyed the musical 'Lumberjacks in Love' performed by the Northern Sky Theater, although we were too late in the season for their outdoor performances. We saw it at Door County Auditorium in Fish Creek. We recommend the middle rows of seats, from row 3 back, if any left, or middle of the left side looking at the stage. On our last night we arrived back at the cottage to see a doe and her two young fawns in the back yard!
The weekend of Labor Day saw Sister Bay teeming with people for Marina Fest, by the Monday most folk had left!
Piggly Wiggly in Sister Bay is the nearest grocery store, a few minutes drive away. There is also a Shopko."

"We just returned from 4 nights at this cottage. This has to have one of the best views in Door County for a rental cottage ! We enjoyed sitting on the deck every morning with a cup of coffee and relaxing at night for the sunsets. We fell asleep to the waves every night. The cottage is very nice, older and small but very comfortable and clean. The living area and the kitchen are good sized and very comfortable. The bedrooms are very small but just fine. The kitchen is well-equipped (if you want to cook !). The owner, Peg, lives next door but you never know she is there - we stopped by one morning just to introduce ourselves - if you need anything though she is available. It's nice they supply a landline phone if you need it - we have Verizon and the cell service was hit and miss. This property is about 8 miles north of Sturgeon Bay and about 11 miles south of Egg Harbor so when planning activities take the distance into consideration as it is not located right in the heart of the Door towns (which is why we really like the location). We travel all over and this was not an issue for us. I would recommend this cottage and we will return. Wonderful place to relax and unwind."

"What an excellent house for me, my wife, and 2 late teen kids. We stayed for a week. The master bedroom and master bath upstairs was a private and quiet escape from the kids who had their own bedroom wing on the first floor. The house had all the amenities and we even cooked on your charcoal grill one evening. The Fish Creek location was also very central for us to explore all of Door County (which we did). Thanks for all and hope to stay there again."

"This was our first trip to Door County, we had such a great holiday will be booking again next year!
The views from the house are beautiful, as our 3 young boys are early risers we had the opportunity to see the breathtaking sunrise most mornings!
The house had everything we needed, was clean & comfortable for a family of 5.
We made great use of the beach toys & hired a paddle board from Bailey's Harbour.
As recommended by the owner we took a trip to the Farm - what a great day! (I'd pack a lunch though)
Being from England & not having them we took advantage of the drive in - we loved it!! I think the adults had as much if not more fun than the kids!
The only thing I would say is the house is on the main road which could get busy at times. It made me nervous enough to not allow the children in the garden without supervision. However we couldn't hear the road noise from inside the house or the beach -the road wouldn't be a problem for less nervous mums or older children.
We wouldn't hesitate to book this property again!"
