It was basic and just ok.
The house advertised that there was air conditioning, but that just means there is a window unit in the living room downstairs. The bedrooms are upstairs and it was hotter upstairs than outside. Super uncomfortable to sleep in that heat. There were no fans available. The air conditioning unit also dropped A LOT of water on the carpet downstairs and we couldn’t constantly run it because it would have ruined the floor and window.
If you're considering this property, there's a few things you should know up front.....They say that there's air conditioning on the web page....there's a window unit in the dining room area, but there's none anywhere you sleep and upstairs gets super hot. With windows open ,there's very little if any airflow. (secret -keep all bedroom doors open and bring supplemental cooling with you...seriously). Everyone was worried about ghosts after seeing the place, but we soon realized there were absolutely no "cold spots" anywhere.
They say that there's internet / WiFi....it's ONLY at the main lodge area...not the houses. (don't travel with 5 teenagers like we did EVER if there's no WiFi). Supplies / towels / toilet paper / soaps / etc are almost provided. You'll have to request them from the lodge down the road...and tell your kids to flush often. Toilets plug fast. Know where the plunger is.
The TV kinda works if you can figure out the remotes and necessary input signals for a weak Direct TV signal. If you're cooking there, which we did often, know that pots, pans, and silverware are beyond ancient and VERY limited. The dishwasher kinda worked but was noisy and took all day to complete a cycle. Also note that there is no washer / dryer and the furniture is far worse in person than in the pictures. Last note...if you bring a dog and leave the leash outside, the landscaper will drive over it with the mower. (yep...didn't even care)
For positives....the beds were comfortable (when you're not sweating). Location is great across from the golf course and lake. You're very close to downtown Egg Harbor.
Perfect for a large family vacation
My family has stayed at this house several times in the last 10 years. Very roomy, perfect for my family of seven. Large yard area were we play horseshoes, badminton, soccer, frisbee. Our dog thinks it's great. Well-maintained and clean every time we've stayed here. Beautiful porch with waterview. Happy with the owners as well. If we need anything, they are quick to provide. Highly recommended by the Menger family.
Great house with great location
My family rented this house for a weekend last fall for the second time. The house was very spacious, very clean and has a great location, one mile from the village. We were able to use the amenities of the Alpine Resort which was great for my kids. The house is located across the street from their golf course which was great for me and my husband. The house has a large lawn and is across the street from the water. The staff/renter were very helpful in giving us suggestions and answering our questions. We will go back to this location and recommend it to others.
A big disappointment
We rented this home for a week in 2014. we expected old but did not expect dirty and poorly maintained. It was both. all the furniture is very old and there is no comfortable place to sit. the whole house was musty and had not been used for some period of time. we had to clean several cobwebs out on the first day we arrived.
the house is well located and the appliances newer than the furniture and generally worked well. the people at the resort are, at best, indifferent and sometimes rude. Throughout our stay, we had interaction with several resort employees and no one ever asked how our stay was going. I suspect they are afraid of the answer to that question so they don't ask.
the final straw was that we paid a large deposit and then paid the full balance due with a credit card at time of check-in. all other charges we either paid in cash or put on a separate credit card. the day after we checked out, they charged our check-in credit card for over $150 dollars with no explanation. I called to complain and they finally refunded a large part (but not all) of the charge. They would not tell me the reason for the charge. If you deal with them I would suggest caution.

About Cindy Livingston or Emily Pitchford
I was born and raised in Egg Harbor, Door County, Wisconsin. I went to grade school in Egg Harbor (the current location of the Egg Harbor Fire Dept.) and attended junior high and high school at Gibraltar H.S. in Fish Creek, 5 minutes north of Egg Harbor. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin in Madison and have been involved in a family business my entire life--the Alpine Resort and Golf Course in Egg Harbor. I have two adult sons and I live in Sturgeon Bay, about 20 minutes south of Egg Harbor. Door County has been a great place to grow up and live and I'm blessed to have the opportunity to remain here on this beautiful peninsula. I love to swim and boat and fish in the summer. And I enjoy skiing and ice fishing in the winter.

Why Cindy Livingston or Emily Pitchford chose Egg Harbor
Glenwood house has been in our family from the beginning. It's close to all the great things Egg Harbor (and Door County) has to offer. It's only available for vacations in the spring, summer and fall. My family is very protective of this house and keep it clean and well maintained.
What makes this House unique
Glenwood is across Horseshoe Bay Road from the water, and it's just a short walk to the Egg Harbor beach. The bay is beautiful for swimming in the summer and early fall. The house has a nice lawn area to play badminton and horseshoes and football, it has a great porch and it's quite roomy. It's also easy to walk into the central part of the village of Egg Harbor to visit shops, listen to music, go to the grocery store and fish at the marina.
