"There was a group of five of us that stayed at the Schooner House for a “girls weekend”. We enjoyed the accommodations and the location. Everything is just as it looks in the pictures other than the beach. The beach area was about 15-20 ft. It definitely could be longer if the area was cleared. It’s possible, because of the time of year, it is not kept cleared since there is less opportunity to use it. No algae issues during our stay. Everyone thought the beds were comfortable. The large deck and the view are the highlights of the Schooner House. Thankfully, we had portions of the weekend where we were able to sit out on the deck and enjoy the view, sun and the sound of the waves hitting the shore. Reminded us of being at the ocean. The chairs on the deck were cloth and very comfortable. We did not think the walk to the beach was long or that the neighbors were too close. It took less than a minute to walk to the beach. The water in the house did not smell. We also enjoyed the view from the living room and kitchen.
We explored Two Rivers, Kewaunee and Algoma. Our favorite spots were the von Stiehl Winery and the Flying Pig. Two Rivers happened to be having their Ethnic Festival, which was also enjoyable. On our way to Algoma, we had lunch at Late’s in Manitowoc. This is a local favorite according to my friend’s father who grew up in the area. We thought the burgers, perch sandwich and cheese curds were very good. During our stay we ate at Red’s, a very short drive north of the Schooner House. The food was good. It offered a variety of choices. We had breakfast at Kunkels Korner in Kewaunee and Dairy Dean’s Family Restaurant in Algoma. Both were very good. The pizza was okay from Algoma Pizza Bowl. The crust was a little cardboardy. It could be a result of us having it delivered. The service was good at all restaurants. Pizza Bowl normally does not deliver to the Schooner House but they accommodated our request. We were very surprised that all the restaurants were willing to provide separate checks. Many restaurants in Milwaukee seem to have a problem with that. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend the Schooner House to others looking to stay in the area."

"Great place to unwind and enjoy the beauty of winter in the Northwoods. We spent several days snowshoeing on the many trails in the area and relaxing in the cabin. I enjoyed meeting Jessica, and we can't wait to return to this special place!"

"My wife and I had shipped our son and daughter off to college and needed someplace to escape to in order to recharge our batteries. Our golden retriever asked to make the trip as well. Fortunately, I stumbled upon the perfect location to enjoy some rest and relaxation. The Quarry House was the right destination. Mary and Mitch were wonderful hosts, inviting us into their home, sharing stories, answering questions and graciously inviting us for crackers, cheese and wine one evening under Mitch's handcrafted pergola. Their place is spectacular, off the beaten path yet close enough to everything and every place that we wished to visit. We spent days hiking and biking the paths of Newport State Park and Peninsula State Park and sitting in the sunshine along Lake Michigan and reading a good book. The Carriage House accommodations were superb - clean, spacious and comfortable (with a whirlpool tub to soak aching muscles at the end of the day). Every amenity that we might have needed was available. I enjoyed sitting in the shade under the pergola and reading as the chickadees, nuthatches, blue jays, red bellied woodpeckers, Downy & Hairy woodpeckers and Kingfishers kept me company. It was the perfect spot for us with two wonderful hosts."

"Another successful vacation at the Ellmann House!
I and my family come every year to enjoy Door County, Fish Creek and the house. The house has all the comforts we need and the location is the best.
The huge porch is a wonderful place to gather any time of the day for meals, cocktails or a good book and a nap.
We will be back."
