Amazing Week!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Gills Rock in this amazing cottage from June 24- June 30. There were 4 of us, 2 adults and 2 kids and our dog! We had the best time! The views from the cottage were unbelievable! The kids loved the hammock, throwing rocks in the lake and going in the hot tub. The cottage was very clean and had everything in it that we needed. We will definitely be back!

The most gorgeous property!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent stay with 5 of us for a celebration of my husband and I’s anniversary. The view from the property at sunset makes this property stunning. A bit of a drive from restaurants and bars but not unmanageable. Super cute coffee shop down the street, as well as plenty to see from the water while kayaking and doing other activities.

The owners were very gracious and provided a great tour around the place when we arrived. There was another family staying while we were there and privacy was not an issue whatsoever.

We LOVED the hot tub, laying out in the hammock, and watching the sun set from the house. We will be coming here every year if we can :) I highly recommend the stay! Best property in Door County for sure!

Beautiful waterfront home

  • 5 of 5

If you are seeking a quiet, relaxing Door County waterfront home then look no further than this one. This place has everything you need... hot indoor firewood sauna, nice 4 person outdoor lakeside jacuzzi hot tub (great place to watch the evening sunset), outdoor patio fire pit, and a pool table/ping pong table top inside attached garage. The kitchen and other indoor spaces are well appointed to fit your needs. Owners (Gretel and Dan) are very welcoming and attentive to all your needs. Lower rental unit is very pet friendly (we had 3 labs with us) and lakeside property is large enough to allow them plenty of room to run. Our family rented both the Apple and Cherry units to allow plenty of space for our private get-away. Please note, the lower unit is mostly windows which could cause privacy issues if other unit is rented too. We will stay here again!

Best Location we have ever stayed at

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding, could not have a better view. The house it self was incredible. Even though we went a little before the tourist season started we found a lot to do. Took a tour of Washington Island on the cherry train it was very enjoyable and recommended. The owners of the property were outstanding, friendly. Could not have been any better for us. It was a wow moment. This property is highly recommended, and yes it is a million dollar view.

Beautiful location and host really accommodating

  • 4 of 5

Love the location and the host was great! Just wanted to note that there is another rental unit in the same house. We had the property to ourselves, but with the back of the house being all windows and there being some communal amenities, it may not be completely private.
