Comfortable with a " back home" feel.

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time we have stayed at The White Duck and we always enjoy the amenities that this place affords. From the three comfortable bedrooms, with bathrooms close by; to the skylights in most rooms of the house. Most of the restaurants are no more than 15 minutes from the front door, but if you wish to eat in, Nancy has supplied the home with all the cookware one would need to put on a major feed for the entire family. You will also enjoy the full wraparound deck which leads you to the two tier deck overlooking Lake Michigan. This year with the lake being especially high it felt as though you were sitting on a house boat as the lake was almost lapping at the foot of the deck stairs. Remember that this is the quieter side of Door Co. so it is easier getting around without the hassle of all the traffic one has to endure on the Bay side. You may be able to find a newer place with newer amenities, but it would be hard to find a place that would make you feel more at home.

Great view of the lake with a large beautiful private sandy beach

  • 5 of 5

White Duck Beach House is centrally located in Door County, was very clean, has a well stocked kitchen, comfortable seating inside and out for our 6 adults and a large beautiful private sandy beach. The 2 king beds were actually twin beds pushed together. The master bedroom has a wonderful sunrise view but no window treatments so bring eye masks for sleeping in. We had great weather but even if it had rained the house has plenty of windows and was so close to the water we would still have had a great view. Our 1 year old grandson was along and his parents were happy to find the twin bedroom closet was big enough to fit a pack-n-play (folding playpen/travel crib) for him to sleep in. The quiet, private, gravel driveway had a small basketball net, so we bought a basketball to shoot hoops. The parking area was big enough for our Suburban and other car to stay safely out of the way of the game with room to spare. We provided our own food, dishwasher detergent, clothes washing detergent, washcloths and towels but we found the house had most of the other things we needed like bedding, kitchen towels & wash cloths, bathroom hand towels, pump hand soap in all the bathrooms and kitchen, dish soap, paper towels, napkins, Kleenex, sugar... The 3 bedrooms each have TV’s but they only get 2 channels. The TV in the living room is on satellite and we never turned on the TV in the upstairs sitting area. The cell phone signal was very weak. Our last morning in Door County we went up North to Sister Bay to eat at Al Johnson’s Swedish Restaurant. The lines were long and we had a flight to catch but it was a beautiful morning so we ordered take out. Our Swedish pancakes were packed and ready in 5 minutes; we walked across the street & sat at a picnic table by the marina. Al Johnson’s has a sod/grass roof with several goats grazing on it during the day, starting in late May through mid October. Check out the live goat cam.

A little history

  • 5 of 5

The White Duck house belonged to my sister and brother in law. They had been coming to Door County since the late 50’s, where they rented a cottage on the beach. My sister had been raving about Door County, the scenic beauty and the wonderful people that she met there. She had been after me for quite some time to visit her. In the late 70’s she called and said that they had found a place down the beach and had purchased it. I first saw it in 1982, when it was just a small two bedroom cottage. I had made a trip from California and she insisted that we go visit Door County. I had never heard of Door County and did not know what to expect. I found a charming resort area that reminded me of New England. The architecture and lush foliage were charming and restful. Shopping and tourist attractions were nearby, but far enough away so that they did not intrude on my solitude. In the next couple of decades they added to the dwelling, converting it from a summer cottage to a fulltime residence for their retirement, but kept the charm of a lake side home. My favorite place in the world is from the second story, looking out over Lake Michigan through the picture windows. The view of the deck, the beach, and the lake brings me tranquility and peace. My sister passed away in 2006 and her husband 1 1/2 years later. I had not been to the White Duck house since then. Ownership passed on to the two daughters who decided to rent the house out. In 2011 I was fortunate to be invited back to share some time with my nieces at the White Duck house. I spent a wonderful week reacquainting myself with Door County and all it has to offer. I found the house to be basically unchanged from when my sister lived in it. My niece asked me to write a review for their website. It is my opinion that if you are fortunate enough to rent the White Duck house, you will get much more than a summer week rental, you will get to share a home that has had a lot of love and fun, and it is reflected in the decoration and furnishings. This is not an average rental where you get the minimum requirements; you will be a guest in a beautiful lake home, with all the amenities. I hope that circumstances in my life allow me to return to the White Duck house, for it is dear to my heart.

White deck beach house -

  • 5 of 5

This was truly a beautiful beach house with all the amenities with the most beautiful, near private sand beach. We had the best time using the bonfire pit where we were able to share family stories. The kitchen had all the equipment necessary for our use and was very spacious. We cannot wait to return to our "private" beach house. Thank you very much for sharing your lovely home.
