Such a beautiful, impeccably clean cabin. I only stayed over night unfortunately. The cabin is a getaway all in its own. I can not wait to to come back with family and friends to just enjoy the company of the cabin.

Beyond expectations

  • 5 of 5

The place was absolutely wonderful. It was nice to have such a lovely home to end a century ride event. We had so much fun on our trip, though the wife wants to divorce her bike, we will definitely be back. The pain of the ride will soon fade but the memories of hidden bear will last forever.....thanx

Cozy Cabin!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Hidden Bear nestled in the woods. We had a girls weekend and loved all the details the cabin had to offer especially gathering around the fire pit for a fun evening.

*Note: The grill is a charcoal grill so remember to bring charcoal and lighter fluid if you plan to grill out.

As advertised... charming with lovely owners. Advice for families with TODDLERS + foodie rec's

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year staying at this property for 8 days for a vacation in Door Cty. We're a family of 5, including children ages 11, 9 and 2.5.

The Ireland family (property owners) are wonderful to rent from-- communicative, flexible, and thoughtful, and the property itself is a lot of fun to spend time in. We've been appreciative of all the things that are included/available for use at the home that one sometimes finds lacking at other vacation rentals. From dry firewood outside and the Cuisinart stand mixer in the kitchen to the cooking gadgets, laundry detergent and easily accessible backup stocks of paper towels and the like... what you need is here.

For anyone with toddlers considering this home, two observations that may be helpful. First, there is little to no outdoor space for small-child play. The area in front of the house is covered with wood chips. Our experience both years is that much of this washes away each summer with heavy rains, leaving a lot of mud which makes for muddy, messy kids, shoes, and clothes. It'd be nice to see that grassed someday, and given that the Ireland's seem to continually add improvements to the property maybe someday they'll get to that one. In the meantime, if you are a get-up-and-go family not prone to spending hours at the home, you'll be fine. But if you are looking to relax while your kids play, you may find it more challenging.

Second, the open stairwell to the loft area will give you heart palpitations. It is almost ladder-steep... a toddler's dream staircase to climb, and a parent's nightmare! (The stairs to the basement are more typically pitched stairs). Because of the unique design, normal baby gates aren't going to work on these stairs. Last year our daughter wasn't walking yet, so no problem. This year, after some thinking ahead, we brought two plastic shelving sections (24" x 36") and used 18" bungees to secure them at the top and bottom of the loft staircase. We could step over, but our daughter couldn't go up or down... which made for a MUCH more relaxing stay. The Ireland's do supply a pressure fit baby gate for the basement, but our experience is that it was not a good fit, and hence wasn't safe to use... but kudos to them for trying to provide a solution. This year we just left the basement stairs open, and our toddler went up and down without too many wipeouts.

Hope this advice helps- it's a lovely home with lovely owners!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Dennis, so much for taking the time to write such a nice review and for the suggestions! We're so glad you loved it! I apologize for the stairs being so steep; it's a long story how it came to be that way... We look forward to having you as our guests again in the future! Thanks again! Sharen & Charlie
