"Our family celebrated a 60th and 30th birthday at this property mid June 2015. We loved it and will come back! We liked the location, we could walk to downtown Ephraim, and we enjoyed being on this beautiful bay of Lake Michigan. The sunsets were gorgeous! The inside of the home had everything you could want. The screened dining space and the large porch were the most enjoyed spaces. The host warmly welcomed us and sent forgotten items after we returned home. A 10+!"

"Lovely home! Very relaxing. Great kitchen space for cooking. The bathrooms were spacious and shower was like a spa! The location was ideal. Shopping in uptown was fun and just a short drive from other quaint areas in Door County. We highly recommend The Ballard House."

"In response to the September 15, 2015 review. We are sorry that our guests were unhappy
The heat and hot water were fixed as soon as we were informed that they were not working. The toilet seat was also replaced as soon as we were made aware that is was broken. Our guests were there for 2 nights by the time we found out about the heat not working we took care of it in a timely manner.
As most people that live or stay in Door County know, the water is heavily laden with iron. The iron stains the toilets and tubs. We do clean with an iron remover. The Lodge is cleaned regularly during the season (before and after each new guest), but we do not get a full de-ironing treatment until the end of each rental season. We do have iron filters as well as a soft water unit filled with iron tablets.
The property is continuously being updated. We have done much remodeling in the 3 seasons in which we have owned the property. We have put in new flooring, cabinets, countertops, appliances etc... The entire Lodge was repainted 24 months ago. The exterior of the property has been resided and a new roof put on 30 months ago.
We are continuously improving and upgrading The Lodge. We have a The Lodge professionally cleaned and the linens and towels professionally cleaned. We welcome you to comeback and try again. Again, we are sorry you were dissatisfied. Thank you."

"My family of 5 (3 teenagers) enjoyed this vacation spot so much that we returned for our 2nd summer in a row. The cottage was very comfortable, clean, and well stocked with everything one would need for the week. We made most of our meals thanks to a fully functional kitchen and grill. The water is very clean and warm. We all enjoyed swimming out to the raft and using the paddle boat and kayaks to tool around the lake. The included inflatables were perfect for those lazy hours on the water. We loved sitting around the fire pit in the evening while listening to the loons on the lake. When the weather wasn't cooperating, we enjoyed the many games and movies/dish available. Our dog even felt the pleasure of being on vacation. We'll definitely return to this gem."
