About Todd Frisoni

Our family loves Door County. We have lived in Sister Bay for 18 years and have been looking for a quiet get away for many years. We finally found the perfect place on the shore of Death's Door. We think you will love this quiet peaceful location too.

The best week of vacation we have had in years.

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a secluded spot where we could escape the Kansas heat for a week and this was perfect. Everything described was accurate but words can give justice to the feeling a cool lake breeze brings. The cool temperatures were made to order.

The house was quiet and felt like you were the only people within miles. The lake view from the window was beautiful. The screened in patio also was a great morning hang out location.

Just hanging out at the house was our favorite activity .We did attend one fish boil as a family because it is the thing to do. Hiking and sightseeing topped it off. The ferry to Washington Island is very close. P.S. Homemade Wisconsin ice cream from the Door County Ice Cream Factory is a special treat.

Wonderful, awe-inspiring getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a great indoor & outdoor property with a thoughtful and responsive host. The house & grounds are spacious, clean and well maintained. So many places to relax and enjoy the view. Large picture windows, the hammock and Adirondack chairs by the fire pit all overlook the stunning views of Death’s Door and Washington Island. There is a pathway to a small rock beach with a lovely sunrise view if you are an early riser. Excellent location for exploring the Northern Door Peninsula. A 5 minute walk to the Washington Island Ferry. We highly recommend this property.

Absolutely Awesome and Amazing

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent 6 nights here and it was wonderful!!!! Todd is a gracious host. He answered my emails pretty quickly and was very nice to work with!!!!

The house was very clean and both bathrooms had been newly re-modeled and had very plush towels!!! The big picture window made for great viewing of boats and ships going by!!!!! I loved the two swivel plush chairs by the window, they were very comfortable!!!! The king bed was very comfortable!!!! I loved sitting in the sunroom with the breeze blowing in, very relaxing!!!! Kitchen was spectacular with new appliances!!!! Loved the wood floors!!!!

I would highly recommend this house for a great vacation!!!!!

We had a relaxing vacation, enjoyed bonfires in the yard, sipping coffee by the picture window, and swinging in the hammock.

Serenity unparalleled!

  • 5 of 5

Looking out over Death's Door from anywhere in this charming cottage, the hammock, or the fire pit chairs is sure to bestow a wonderful feeling of pure calm and serenity! I could feel my blood pressure dropping! Surprisingly roomy and charmingly decorated, the layout and functionality was perfect for 6 of us. The large yard was enjoyable and the bonfire celebration of our daughter's golden birthday memorable. Todd is a gracious host and responds quickly to questions or needs. Rent it while you can, because if it was up to me, I'd buy the place from him and keep it to myself! Truly enjoyable and relaxing weekend! You'll love it!
