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.

Beautiful Place to Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for three nights four days and it was wonderful. The house was great with everything that we needed supplied. (Bedding, towels, blankets, pillows, fire wood, charcoal grill) The owner, Todd, was very responsive every time I emailed with questions prior to and during our stay. The kitchen was fully furnished which made cooking a breeze. Beds were very comfortable and very modern updated bathrooms. Plenty of room to just sit. Great screened in porch to admire the beautiful water view. Only a very short distance away from the ferry to Washington Island and only 15 minutes away from Sister Bay. Definitely a place we would stay again.

Nice Lake Property

  • 5 of 5

The property offers a great view of the lake- we spent a good deal of time sitting and admiring from the adirondack chairs.. The house was very clean and spacious. We had a great visit!

Charming, private lakefront bungalow within short drive of tourist attractions

  • 5 of 5

Owners are friendly and helpful without being intrusive and the property is exactly as pictured: clean and well-furnished with nice bathrooms and comfortable beds. Kitchen has everything necessary for a weekend getaway, (great appliances), and quick trips to the local Pioneer Store or Piggly Wiggly were enough to keep us well-fed for a week. We would definitely return and recommend the place to friends!

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.
