Our home is located on 'the quiet side' of beautiful Door County and is a peaceful retreat after shopping in the towns nearby. The home features water views and includes beach/lake access across a quiet, dead-end street from Lake Michigan.

We spent 3 glorious nights in this wonderful home during Labor Day weekend. The house is thoughtfully laid out (lots of natural light, plenty of storage, open floor plan, and great views of the natural surroundings). The quality of the interior millwork is outstanding, and all appliances, fixtures, and furnishings are upscale and in pristine condition. The decor is sophisticated and yet inviting and soothing, with a dream kitchen, and screened porch that begs you to rest and r e l a x. -- The house is nestled on a hill surrounded by a natural "forest" of well established trees and wildflowers. Just across a quiet road a sandy path leads to a creek of sorts, and a private beach which stretches as far as the eye can see.
This house is located on the "quiet side" of Door County and is approximately a 30-minute drive to the west side where some of the better known tourist towns are located, eg, Ephraim, Egg Harbor, Fish Creek, etc. However, on some days we made the drive to/from more than once. (Easy drive).
When we arrived we had an immediate question about the location of the house key and the caretaker was on the spot within a few short minutes. No time lost.
I would highly recommend this home to anyone who is seeking a classy, upscale residence, and who wants to enjoy the quietude of their surroundings (as well as a sandy beach which is far superior to any we know on the "other" side). This is an exceptional home of exceptional good looks and quality....one that is not always available in a rental market. Don't hesitate!
My family has been staying in Whitefish Bay for over 60 years, so we are already familiar with the quiet beauty of this setting. This home has it all. It was very comfortable for our group of 8 adults, although children would be comfortable as well since there are beach toys and a crib. Since we like to cook meals in often, the fully-equipped kitchen was a treat. Everything worked properly and the house was very clean upon our arrival. The screen porch was our family's favorite feature - it is very spacious with multiple seating areas and allowed us to read, play games or just chat outside even during the evening hours and the one rainy morning we had. I found the owners to be most accommodating and pleasurable to deal with - it's clear they want to please their guests in every way. We hated to leave this lovely home and are eagerly looking forward to our next stay. I highly recommend this home.
My wife and I spent a long weekend here in early October. We found an absolutely wonderful home away from home and will be returning to enjoy it next year.
This is the perfect spot for a relaxing vacation. Every evening, it was such a joy to return to this gorgeous home for a lovely sunset and wonderful meal on the HUGE screened-in porch (dining table plus seating area). The photos do not do this home justice-it is beautifully built and maintained-gorgeous floor, finishes and furnishings. The kitchen has absolutely anything you require to cook anything you could want. The centralized music system is great.
The master bath is beautifully appointed with a big tub and huge steam shower, and double vanities. The bedroom is a very nice size with lots of storage. The bed is VERY firm. There is also a crib in the room.
The living room is a lovely place to curl on the sofa and read a book-with the gas fireplace if it's chilly.
The setting feels very private-up on a hill, quite wooded and covered with hydrangeas.
We frequently went to the big beach across the street-which is quiet and very walkable. Also a fabulous spot to watch the sunset reflect on clouds.
My husband and I enjoyed a nice dinner at Glidden Lodge-go early to enjoy a sunset on the patio (heat lamps are available).
We also had really good pizza and sandwiches at The Hitching Post, which is owner-operated.
We are looking forward to our next visit. We would consider ourselves lucky to stay in this wonderful home again.
