Exactly what we hoped for

  • 5 of 5

My family of eight had a wonderful time staying at the harbor house. The kitchen was well stocked and there was plenty of space on the main living area and porch for us to enjoy one another's company. The waterfront and Many restaurants and shops are within walking distance. We also enjoyed using the kayaks and front yard for yard games. The owners were very responsive to my questions making our experience all the more positive.

Nice place

  • 4 of 5

The Cottage was perfect for our needs and the location was great. Very well kept and clean. Pride of ownership was obvious. Also nice that there was a Weber Grill. I was surprised how fast the Neighborhood Watch Beach Monitor was on us though. Stepped on the Beach and BAM there he was. It was fine he was just making sure we were not invading. Would stay again if back in Door County.

This was our first time in Door Co. and this spacious home worked very well. Set back on a quiet road, yet centrally located to all the local attraction. Will stay again

The property was clean, welcoming and full of the charm we were looking for.

  • 5 of 5

The kitchen was wonderful. The yard was perfect for little boy and grandpa baseball. The close proximity to the candy store was both wonderful and a problem. We would love to stay again.

Great location - cute house!

  • 4 of 5

As soon as we arrived the grandkids declared it their favorite house. Loved the privacy and convenience. We were initially disappointed that it wasn't right on the water and did not end up using the beach area but we loved the front yard and spacious porch. Loved the new upgrades to the kitchen and bathrooms and amenities. Very accommodating owners.
