Overview

About the property

3/4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, sleeps 12

I am excited to tell you about a truly 'one of a kind' location in Door County with a 'one of a kind' home! On the 'Quiet Side' of Door County there is a 'Dream Home' that is literally on the borderline of the Whitefish Dunes State Park. The views are nothing short of amazing. As you look out the large picture windows and skylights you will see beautiful white birch trees, an assortment of evergreen trees, huge sand dunes and a variety of wildlife including birds and whitetail deer.

Imagine.. a beautiful 4000 Square Foot Custom Built Home - with lots and lots of big windows and skylights - that is built on the borderline of a State Park. Our home is nicely nestled in the Woods on top a huge Sand Dune that OVERLOOKS beautiful Lake Michigan. Our home is not on the water - you will need to take a 3 minute walk down our driveway then a short venture on a path through the woods to get our beautiful Sand Beach. The sand on the beach is so clean that it 'squeaks' when you walk on it. You will absolutely love our beach! Relax and build sand castles with your kids.

House Details: When you are not out hiking trails or walking the beach relax in a vacation home that is ideal for large groups of family members and friends. Use 3 bedrooms, 1-2 'open concept' bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths and sleeping for 12-17 adults and children.

While you relax in the great room by the Fireplace your kids or friends can socialize in the rec room with Ping Pong, Card Table, and Wireless Internet. Enjoy a family meal in our sun room with seating for up to 10 and 3 more at the snack bar.

Relax with a book in the cozy den area. Have a nice dinner using our charcoal grill off our back deck with incredible views of the woods and huge sand dunes. Visit the Crow’s Nest to get away from it all and take in the awesome views of Lake Michigan & the Park!

The Door County Dream Home and the surrounding area will call you back year after year.

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have asked for a better place. Had a great weekend with the guys here and definitely recommend staying here. Awesome fire pit area, grill, fireplace inside, ping pong table, crows nest and deck. I would suggest if you plan to play ping pong bring your own paddles, which the owner did warn me of. Absolutely no complaints here. On top of that the owner responds very quickly to any questions you may have which is great.

Our First Trip to Door County

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful rental property that I would recommend to others that visit Door County. The home was exactly as described on the website and very clean upon our arrival. The owner was very helpful prior to and during our stay. We had never built a fire in a real fireplace so he sent us a video with instructions. We took many walks on the beach and into the dunes park. What a gorgeous park! The is a very nice restaurant - Glidden Lodge - just a mile or so away. In our first trip to Door County we found a beautiful home and a wonderful location. Our security depost was prompty returned after our stay.

A Dream Location on the Park

  • 5 of 5

The location of this property is very unique because your "back yard" is a park. Although there are just partial views of Lake Michigan there are some beautiful views of the sand dunes, birch trees and evergreen trees. Our group of 10 adults had plenty of room and enjoyed playing ping pong, relaxing by the fireplace and making some awesome meals - the dining table is just big enough for our entire group to sit around. If you enjoy nature, hiking and walks on the beaches of Lake Michigan you will love this home and location. Upon our arrival the home was very clean. We did have 1 small issue with running the whirlpool BUT within 10 minutes of contacting the owner our problem was problem was promptly solved. I would recommend this home - we have already booked our next stay in the Fall.

Beautiful home and surroundings, plenty of room for our combined family 12.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the hills to sled on and the icy beach was neat for pictures, we enjoyed the Eagles Nest and the fireplace. Plenty of spaces for some to have quiet time and others to play games. Would recommend it for others. May consider it for a acrapbooking weekend with the ladies.

Our Summer Home

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at the "Dream Home" the past three Summers. Our family of 8 loves staying at this rental because of the beautiful home, the huge windows that offer spectacular views, the comfortable furniture, the ping pong table in the recreation room, the crow's nest, the beautiful sand beach and the Whitefish Dunes State Park trails. We have stayed at several places in Door County over the years but this house and location has become our favorite. The rental manager is very responsive and we can always expect a squeaky clean place upon our arrival. If you enjoy the “quiet side” of Door County be sure to check this place out. The prime time rental rates are fairly expensive BUT weeks in early June and late August are heavily discounted!
