  • Great House

    "Enjoyed our stay at this great house with plenty of space for relaxing either in a huge screen porch or on the upper deck with a view of the water. Great bike rides in the area, close to the ferry to Washington Island, two State Parks and plenty of shopping and restaurants. Lots of room for family gatherings."

  • Beautiful, Very Special Retreat

    "We spent four wonderful days here, and were so sad to leave! This is a unique, lovingly maintained property with tremendous character. The location is perfect - it's close to "town" in Ellison Bay, yet you feel a million miles away. It's large enough to host a small family reunion (as we did), with a kitchen that begs for collaborative cooking. The firepit is the perfect spot for stargazing, and we had a lot of fun playing badminton. And the WiFi works just fine :). We loved our time at Whytefyshe, and hope to return one day."

  • Even better than the pictures!

    "We stayed in this lovely home in August, 2014 and loved everything about it. We are a group of four couples and everyone was happy with their bedrooms and we all enjoyed the house. The short walk to the water was great for watching the sunsets. We have been renting houses on VRBO for the last 18 years and this is by far the cleanest house that we have even stayed in. Often the pictures makes the homes look better than they actually are but I think this house looks even better than its pictures. We like staying in Ellison Bay because it is still close to everything but you don't have to fight the traffic like you do in some of the Door County towns."

  • 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."
