An Ideal Choice For Those Seeking The Serenity And Peace That Nature Provides.

Shared Serenity vacation home is centrally located in the heart of the Door County peninsula. Located just minutes from the downtown areas of both Fish Creek & Egg Harbor, our guests have easy access to many attractions, as well as state, local & county recreation parks. The new Trolley Station is just a few minutes South of us on Hwy 42 if you are planning to take a trolley tour during your stay. Our home is very comfortable, with 4 bedrooms & 2 baths. It is surrounded by 1.57 acres of forest, all for you to enjoy. Every room offers a view of the woods. Shared Serenity is located in Fish Creek, on Daisy Patch Road, which winds through our private community. It is a beautifully wooded street to walk or bike on. Enjoy the serenity after a long day of sight seeing on the Door County peninsula!

We offer 2 rental options; our guests can save money by selecting one of the following options that suits their needs or budget. Check our rate box for free night specials in early Fall and early June.

About Jackie Santora

Shared Serenity was the result of a special friendship between two couples who love Nature and all that Door County has to offer. After countless trips to Door County, we bought a home together. It was obvious from the start that we made the right decision. The name "Shared Serenity" also came about because we share our rental months. In 2017, if you would like to reserve our home in the months of Jan, March, May, July, Sept or Nov, you will be assisted by Jackie & Gery Santora. In Feb, April, June, Aug, Oct or Dec reservations will be handled by Denice & Ken Hubbard. The Hubbards currently live in Door County, while the Santoras reside in Palos Heights, IL. All of us are dedicated to making your stay at Shared Serenity a very memorable one for you and your party. We truly want you to feel at home during your stay. We alternate the months every year, so if you have booked with us before you may get assisted by the other partner if planning a return visit. We are all on the same page and have the same goal for our guests. Both couples have adult children and are able to dedicate quality time and effort into making Shared Serenity an oasis you will want to return to, or hopefully recommend to a friend or relative. We will answer your inquiry promptly and professionally.

Why Jackie Santora chose Door County

Our wish is to share the serenity with you. We find that the location of Shared Serenity and the woods that surround our home bring us much peace and harmony with Nature and provide an escape from an otherwise hectic pace we all seem to experience these days. We hope when you leave our home—you leave relaxed, re-energized and with many wonderful memories.

What makes this house unique

Whether you are cooking inside or out, our spacious open air kitchen and living room will provide a comfortable atmosphere for your group. There is a separate wine cooler for you to chill your favorite wine as well! The backyard patio is complete with a propane grill, a stone cooking fireplace great for cooking corn, potatoes and more. The large circular fire pit will seat several people around a bonfire. Our front porch spans the width of the house and beckons you to relax and enjoy the serenity of the property.

Perfect Spot - Heart of Door County!

  • 5 of 5

Shared Serenity was an excellent property. Located in the middle of the peninsula; rather we were going to Sturgeon Bay or Gil's Rock, the drive was never too long. The house itself is great, the pics just don't do it justice. We had a group of 5 adults and we had plenty of room, the kitchen was great, and the wine waiting for us on the counter was a nice touch! Mojo Rosa's in Egg Harbor has the BEST Bloody Mary's and the Chocolate Chicken has great coffee. Not Licked Yet in Fish Creek is a must-see. Jackie was very helpful; always answered e-mails promptly and was pleasant to deal with. I would definitely recommend Shared Serenity to family and friends.

Great Family House!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at Shared Serenity! We needed a house that had room for our 3 adult children and their significant others. The house was very clean and well cared for. Kitchen was well stocked with dishes and pots so we truly felt like we were at home. My 'kids' enjoyed doing one of the puzzles that were in the cabinet in the living room! House was in a great location to get into Egg Harbor or Fish Creek but it was also on a quiet and peaceful street. Owners treated us with great respect in reserving the house and leaving us notes to make our stay more enjoyable! We would definitely rent this house again if the opportunity arises!

Great Spot - Convenient for Exploring Door County!

  • 5 of 5

Our sisters' trip was extra special because the accommodations were clean and very comfortable. We had plenty of room for six ladies to enjoy our time together. The woodsy setting was very relaxing and we enjoyed watching the wildlife from the kitchen window. It's centralized location made it easy to see all that Door County has to offer without driving very far each day. We recommend this for your next getaway.

We were very pleased with our stay at Shared Serenity. It was very clean, well maintained, and everything was exactly as advertised. We had 2 babies and it was clean enough for them to roam around on the floor! The outdoor area was very user friendly and we used the fire pit and the grill. Restaurant and beach recommendations were utilized and appreciated. Communication with the owner(s) prior to our stay was timely and personable. We would definitely return and recommend to others.

Owner's Response: I'm happy Share Serenity was so suitable for your family. It sounds like the babies adapted just fine. With such pleasant weather during your stay, it's great you enjoyed the outside yard areas as well. We look forward to having you stay with us again. Thank you!

We Loved It!!! "Serenity"... what a perfect name!!

  • 5 of 5

We were so fortunate to find Shared Serenity! We were coming up to Door County to view the colors and really didn't want to stay in hotels. What a wonderful alternative. We felt at home immediately. The bedrooms and baths were very comfortable and CLEAN!! Everything was there in the kitchen. We had rain so we didn't get to use the barbeque or fire pit but really thought that if the opportunity presented itself it would have been fun also. There were four of us and we were all very comfortable though out the stay. We saw 3 deer, a doe and two fawns wandering through one evening. They weren't worried about anything either- Just like US!!!Serenity is what we needed and it is what we got!

We found working with the owners very easy and the deposit was returned quickly. We forgot a camera battery charger and they mailed it to us as soon as they were able to locate it. What a nice touch also was the complimentary wine! Thank you so much!!

We would recommend Shared Serenity to any and all who really want to get away for a while. If we have the opportunity to return, we will certainly call on Shared Serenity again!!

we loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Shared Serenity. The location is perfect...wooded and quiet...but still just a short drive to a number of small towns. It was really clean and well stocked and we loved the indoor fireplace. The evenings were a little damp & chilly during our stay and it was so wonderful to sit by the fire, warm and dry, each night. The satellite TV was a plus for the kids. You can only play games for so long. :)

Owner's Response: I am very happy you found Shared Serenity and our location very comfortable despite the cooler nights and damp weather. I was also glad to read that your family really enjoyed the indoor fireplace too! We take pride in our clean home and appreciate that you took care of it during your stay. We hope to hear from you again if you visit Door County in the future. Thank you!
