Very nice house and a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Just a block off the Main Street. Being off the main road means it is very quiet and private. Just a great location if you want to spend some time in Door county. Fully equipped house with all the amenities of home. The whole place feels like it was recently renovated and is picture perfect. Lovely deck. Comfy furniture. And the high speed internet is truly high speed.

This place has everything

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful home for a family with young children. It had everything you would ever need. High chairs, pack & play, toys, dishes, potty seat, movies, etc.

The home was amazingly clean, spacious and very comfortable. It is in a quiet and great location. I am recommending it to everyone I know.
