Guestbook comments from the manager

I stayed there late in September of this year. It was absolutely wonderful. The location, setting the building, grounds and interior were all far beyond what I expected. The log structure is stunning! No expense or corners cut with the house. It's very spacious and has a wonderful feel and ties the country setting and all the conveniences of home into one. It has large open concept living room, kitchen and dining are that didn't feel alienating to me and would be very comfortable to accommodate multiple families with plenty of space for everyone. There's a loft with beds and the bedrooms are private and the bed was extremely comfortable. The owners were very friendly and accomodating to my needs and requests.

It has a great kitchen with high end appliances and is laid out well to be conducive for preparing a gourmet meal or the simplest of meals or snacks. A small game room with a pool table. Play area outside for children. Several decks to enjoy the setting and lots of windows throughout. The ground are surrounded by beautiful mature trees.

It was exactly what I needed to recharge my batteries and refresh my spirit. I would highly recommend it to anyone whether solo, couples, families or multiple families. The location is ideal being almost in the center of the county. 12 miles to Sturgeon Bay and convenient to enjoy the tourist attractions, hiking, biking and Lake Michigan.

I'm going to suggest it to my company for a corporate team building retreat. It will work perfectly.

I highly recommend it and well definitely go back!

What a fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a family wedding being held in Door County. Wow, just an awesome home. There were so many rooms and places to spread out. My boys loved the heated garage and playing pool while also enjoying the 80 acres outside and playing catch. The adults enjoyed the firepit in the evenings and the sprawling kitchen and dining areas as well. Thank you for letting us enjoy this beautiful log home.

Beautiful Log Home

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at his beautiful log home. There was plenty of room for the eight of us. We had a fire in the nice campfire area on one of the evenings. We loved the frogs that came out at night and attached themselves to the screens/windows. We also loved the privacy away from the downtown area. I would recommend this wonderful place to everybody.

amazing cabin

  • 5 of 5

Annual book club retreat. Lovely home, very comfortable for a group of 12 with different sleep habits. Property well maintained and outfitted with everything we needed for a 3 night stay. Easy access to lots of activities but very private. The rain prevented us from using the fire pit at night but we have plans to come back next year.

Roomy and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We took my parents and extended family here for a long weekend. The place was bright, cozy, and *big*. We also used the kitchen and grill to cook a birthday meal for my mother-in-law and it had all the equipment and dishes that we needed. The location was also perfect -- 15 minutes from Egg Harbor on a quiet country road, with big trees and a fire pit. Thanks to Kim and Diane for their responsiveness and for keeping a beautiful vacation rental.

Great cabin close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I were at this cabin for a couple nights at the end of April, and it was wonderful. The owners were very nice and easy to contact with any questions or issues. The cabin is a beautiful place and perfect for a quick or extended trip - it is near a number of wineries, restaurants, and centrally located to most destinations in Door County. I'd highly recommend.

Be careful!

  • 2 of 5

Our family stayed at the Honey Dew Lodge in April 2017 and while the place is large and the space can comfortably accommodate 16, there are some things to consider about renting this home; no toilet paper when we arrived, wall oven did not work correctly making it hard to prepare meals, stairs broken on deck, rails broken on the deck, sliding glass door broken and very difficult to open and close, a door to the outside broken causing it to continually fly open, hot tub was not working, no hot water for dishes or bathing the first day, The upstairs shower fixture was broken when we arrived and we fixed it, and several very awkward untimely "pop-in" visits by the owners throughout our stay and several work crews cutting wood and working on the broken staircases, very poor communication on behalf of the owners when trying to rent the place- no return phone calls. I realize this place is the owners "second home" but when you decide to be a rental property you need to give the renters their space and privacy- it was very uncomfortable and unnecessary to be dropped in on continuously by the owners and work crews. The worse part of the experience was after our stay when the owners accused us of not cleaning the place upon our departure and cashed our security deposit due to damages that we were never informed of (they were not our damages). We were accused of breaking a door lock downstairs and an outdoor statue by the fire pit. Both were issues when we arrived. We absolutely left the place spotless, and in fact made repairs, stacked firewood and cleaned up the yard. We vacuumed the entire home, did all the dishes, cleaned the kitchen, scrubbed out the refrigerator, emptied the trash and recycling, made the beds and folded the towels. It was very disappointing to be accused of something we simply did not do! All in all, the place was clean and spacious but in need of several repairs and the management really put a damper on the visit. After reviewing some of the reviews we realized it wasn't just us, some of these same issues have come up for other renters. Be careful! They are funding needed repairs by keeping security deposits regardless of whom may have done the damages.
