About the property

One Of A Kind, Three Story Home On The Shores Of Lake Michigan.

The concept of the house design comes directly from a fire lookout tower which would contain windows all around the top level for 360 degree viewing. The home sits on acre lot with 320 feet of private pebble beach which is great for building campfires right at the waters edge. Every level has its own bedroom and bathroom for privacy. The tower has a large great room with vaulted ceilings, a dining/wet bar area that overlooks the lake for romantic dinners, a gas fireplace, a two person soaking tub, exterior walk around catwalk and a bedroom equipped with two full size beds. The main level has a kitchen/living area with a gas fireplace, full glass shower enclosure with view of the lake from the bathroom and a bedroom. The lower level has the master suite with two patio doors opening to a private deck and its own private bathroom.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were looking for an escape for Valentines Day weekend and ran across this wonderful lake house. We were somewhat skeptical when we read a recent review concerning the water. We spoke with the owners who assured us it was fine and that the review was a spiteful attempt at revenge due to being charged for a nominal fee for damage. They were right! WATER WAS FINE! We had a great stay at a very nice home. Great value for the price! Can't beat the views! Hope to return in the summer. We would rate this experience 5 stars!!

Best trip ever!

  • 5 of 5

It's been our experience before that when we go back to a place a second time that we don't enjoy it as much as the first time. This was not the case! This trip was even better than the first time we were there. The place is beautiful, clean and we'll maintained. We enjoyed all the outdoor space and the view of the lake was great--- we even got to see a rainbow over the lake. The three of us hope to go back as soon as we can.

Christmas on the lake

  • 4 of 5

My family got together from across Wisconsin for a long Christmas weekend at this place. It was so pretty, right on the lake. Would have been a lot better if the weather was more agreeable. Snow storm two of our three days. But plenty of space inside to play games and relax. The only issue we had all weekend was that the TV was off often due to the storms and the wind was loud! Not much you can do about the weather with winter in Wisconsin. Owner was very easy to work with and left a nice welcome basket.

House is comfortable and well furnished

  • 3 of 5

We found the house to be very comfortable and enjoyable in an idyllic spot in Algoma, about 20-30 minutes to Door County. The layout of the three floors worked really well for our group of five adults. The views are magnificent and the deck on the third floor was our favorite spot. We also really enjoyed building a fire on the beach.

The only thing we had a problem with was getting our damage deposit back. We checked out two weeks ago and it's my understanding that the deposit is just now being mailed this weekend, after I tried to reach them by text, email and phone. The owners and I exchanged texts disagreeing what a damage deposit is. The owners pointed out that we left coffee grounds in the coffee maker, which I am hoping isn't a cause to not give my damage deposit back.

The house is fabulous, we just had challenges after we checked out, which I'm hoping will prove to be taken care of when we finally get our deposit back.

What a lovely home....and the view!

  • 5 of 5

We booked our stay for four days. Could have absolutely stayed longer!

We spent considerable time exploring the area, but wished we could have stayed longer to enjoy the house and the beach.

The house is just lovely and set up to enjoy family. So many wonderful views to enjoy with your morning coffee. The house was very well equipped which certainly made our stay so easy and enjoyable.

Being right on the water (stunning!) with a private beach just put our stay over the top. There were so many different areas outside to enjoy with great seating - double decks, tables, chairs, benches, etc. Even on the beach so that evening fires could be enjoyed comfortably.

Thank you so much for letting us stay in your lovely home - what a wonderful experience.

Lambeau field is approximately 30 miles from the lakehouse. It's an easy drive/route there.
