Not quite what we expected.
There are no false claims in the property description. They did however leave a few things out.
The cottage is in a nice family friendly park like setting. Many nice shade trees and plenty of distance between cabins. When I emailed the manager she promptly responded. The first surprise was that they normally do not supply sheets and towels. When I expressed our disappointment she made a exception. She supplied them but we had to make our own beds when we got there. Towels were supplied but not fresh ones for each day. We do not mind reusing our own towels but there were not enough towel bars to let them dry. A robe hook on the bathroom door would be a simple handy perk. The top bunk had a better mattress than the bottom bunk but the other beds were quit comfy. The kitchen was well furnished but we did no cooking. The microwave took a long time to warm a cup of coffee(at least 2 min). The stove and refrigerator appeared to be clean. Be prepared for no air conditioning, no wi-fi and no TV. There is a DVD player. Maybe we just did not know how to work it but there were no instructions either.
The rules pertaining to leaving. You are asked to strip all the beds and return the bedding to the office. Put the bedspreads back on. Clean the bathroom. Sweep and mop the floor. I don't think that people did that seeing our socks will never be white again. The good part was that the price was good and we still had a great girls get away.
Perfectly charming lake cottage rustic yet comfortable
Picture perfect get away with all the surrounding charm of Door County!
Quaint, clean cottage. Sandy beach. Playground for the kids.
Nice clean cottage just a few yards from a sandy beach. Grandkids (10 & 8) had a blast on the playground equipment, the ample lake swimming area, and the rowboats & canoes. First time at Juniper which is part of a cluster of a few small cottages. Would definitely book at this location again.
Our week at East Shorewood Cottages
To the Owners of Juniper Cottage; We did have a good week in DC with beautiful weather!! Our extended family has been coming to Kangaroo Lake for the past 30 years!! We have stayed at Redwood, Evergreen, Cedar, Hickory & Juniper cottages, on & off, for many years. We so love the grounds, play equipment, fire pit and the sandy beach, which is the best beach on Kangaroo Lake!!! We know that Juniper has gone through some great improvements, as the open ceiling, nice kitchen sink & counter top, new floor & the added deck out front. We felt that the cottage was adequate, but do feel improvements are needed in the cottage, as well as in the resort. The TV needs to be upgraded as could not receive any local channels, only QVC & one CNN channel. So, could never get the weather or news on it. The bathroom needs brighter lighting, as is very dark & cave like inside. The living room window needs to be upgraded due to the cloudy haze between the two pains of glass. The pots & pans, especially the frying pans, need to be replaced. The old charcoal grill is in disrepair and should also be upgraded. To us, the major problem at East Shorewood is the lack of Wi-Fi and cell phone service. In this day & age, it is important to have this service available to your guests. Could not use I-pads or I-phones, except (at end of pier), so very difficult to communicate with others while in Door County, etc. Overall, we still love East Shorewood Cottages, but feel these issues need to be addressed. Sincerely, Concerned Guests
P.S. Want to thank Trudy & Glen for all the work they do, especially keeping the grounds & beach area in great shape, for all of us to enjoy!!
Experience cherry picking during the July-August harvest. Or, tour one of the quaint wineries and enjoy the local flavors offered.
