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.

Great value!

  • 5 of 5

We had 8 adults and 7 kids between the house and cottage and it worked very well for us. It was clean, private, close to the beach, and provided all of the amenities we needed. Randy and Elizabeth were wonderful to work with. Would go again!

Happy Reunion!

  • 5 of 5

Five friends for 50 years gathered at this wonderful home for three days of fun time together! We sat around the dining room table sharing our childhood memories and relaxed on comfy couches in the living room! We enjoyed our wine and appetizers on the screened-in porch! We each had our own bedroom, too! We were close to all the shops and restaurants we could squeeze into our time spent in Door County! Thank you for sharing the quiet, relaxing getaway home for our gathering!
