"Stayed with our small family of 3. Loved it. Very helpful and friendly hosts/owners.
Pelicans and birds at sunrise and sunset. Deer in the evening.
They have bikes, and a small tricycle. Charcoal grill and camp fire pit.
No neighbor on one side. The neighbor on the other side is very friendly yet will not disturb your privacy !"

"We couldn't have been happier with our time at the historic Doc's Hideaway. A week-long getaway after the school year ended was perfect. Gills Rock is no more than 45 minutes away from anything you want to do in Door County, yet the spot is off the beaten path and so peaceful. You are 5 minutes away from the Washington Island ferry and 15 from Sister Bay. Lots of nice places to swim, eat, walk and relax very close by.
The cabin itself is excellent. Full service kitchen, with plenty of dishes and pots/pans to make all your meals. My wife even baked me a pie when we arrived! Modern amenities that don't take away from relaxation and family time, if that is what you are looking for. Plenty of ways to unplug and stay that way, but there is satellite TV if you need to catch the news or a game. Nice main bedroom and 4 twin beds upstairs for the kids. Firepit (used almost every night) and firewood provider next door, sitting porch, in-window air conditioners if it gets too hot (we didn't need them in June). Very comfortable inside and out.
The owners are very nice as well. Available if you need something, but no sign of them if not. They live across the street and make their pier and lakeshore patio available to renters. The place was great for our dogs too.
You will love it!"

"We had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful cottage over the week of Memorial Day. The cottage was everything it states in the description and more. The beds were the most comfortable that I have slept in and the linens were wonderful too. Although it was a wet week, we caught tons of fish off the dock. They ranged from large mouth bass, small mouth bass, perch, rockbass, blue gills, and northern. They were all substantial in size, and all went right back in the lake as we only do catch and release.
The mosquitoes were horrible in the morning and at dusk, so bring enough repellent. The lot is large and level to the lake and the gazebo provided a nice touch.
I have to say this is one of my favorite cottages I have rented in Northern Wisconsin. It is nicely stocked and it is so nice to have hand soap, toilet paper, kleenex, kitchen paper towels, bathroom linens, and dishwasher detergent included so you don't have to lug all that to the cottage. You will be very pleased with how it is decorated too. I will definitely return next year. Thanks for everything Jennifer, it was a pleasure to speak with you and you made it so easy to book this vacation.
The only recommendation that I have is to have 2 keys available for the cottage."
