About Dennis & Marla Sunstrom

We both grew up in the Milwaukee area and met in high school. Dennis introduced me to Door County early in our relationship. It was a place his family visited and vacationed often and a place he truly loved. We love camping and for years we have always camped at least once during the year at Peninsula State Park. We also visit family there as often as possible and the purchase of this property has made it a lot of fun.

Dennis & Marla Sunstrom purchased this house in 2009

Why Dennis & Marla Sunstrom chose Door County

Because Dennis' parents were originally from Door County and have now retired there we thought it fitting to have our own vacation home close to family.

What makes this house unique

We love the peace and quiet this property offers, yet it's close to so many things we love to do.

Great Family vacation location!

  • 5 of 5

We had 5 adults, 2 kids and 1 dog and EVERYONE loved this place! We were close enough to all the action in the Door and far enough that it was a true getaway! They provided more than most rentals do, including extra linens and even shower stuff! The kitchen was well appointed and the spice cabinet was inspiring to say the least! We were able to cook all our meals there. We all fit comfortably in the three bedrooms, the kids had fun setting up camp in the huge closet upstairs! Whether it's your first time visiting Door Co, or you go every summer, stay here!

The Chalet is the best! Such a cozy, spacious home with so many amenities. :)

  • 5 of 5

This weekend was our 6th annual siblings weekend at the Chalet. It is just off of Hwy 42 (easy access) and so close to everything. It is a home away from home with so many extras; we especially appreciate the kitchen stocked with coffees, teas, herbs and spices if we choose to prep meals there. It is quiet except for the leaves rustling in the wind and we enjoy the views of Door County woods from all sides. It's great to come back to a comfy place after a full day of sightseeing, or to know that if the weather isn't cooperative we can "chill out" in it's coolness or toast up to a cozy fire in the fireplace. Thanks Marla and Dennis!
