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."

"House has been renovated and looks great--- lots of room to spread out, inside and outside.
Located on a quiet street, it's an easy walk to the marina and the shops and restaurants; felt very safe even walking home at night.
Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!"

"I recently spent a few days at Beach House with another grandmother and our 2 young grandchildren. The kids immediately climbed the ladder to the loft and claimed this space as their private play area. We enjoyed splashing in the waves, building sand castles on the beach and enjoying local attractions like The Farm.
The Beach House is simple, comfortable and equipped with everything we needed for our stay. It is very clean, the beds are comfortable and the cottage invites us to relax. It is right on the lake so very convenient for young children. We will definitely return!"

"We pulled up and realized the house was bigger than expected. The ferry ride and drive was beautiful and loved tht the house was totally stocked with the basics for us to cook and enjoy the week. The views are amazing and the people of washington island are just as friendly as ever. We will be back for sure! Also be sure to check out the rec center and pool in town we had a blast on rainy days there!"
