About Pat O'Donnell

My wife Dena and I have two very active boys. With our hectic schedule we can't find the time to be at the cabin enough so we decided to share it with you. I've lived in Wisconsin my whole life and I absolutely love Door County.

Pat O'Donnell purchased this cabin in 1995

Why Pat O'Donnell chose Door County

I think this is the best part of the county because this isn't the tourist area, but yet you can enjoy a very scenic peaceful drive along the shoreline to visit all the wonderful areas in the county.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful sunsets

  • 5 of 5

Perfect weekend get-a-way. Cottage is clean and cozy. Has everything you need.Beautiful views of the sunset and the lake is steps away. Enjoyed having a firepit outside and gazing at the stars at night. The owners are wonderful and made sure all our needs were met. Short drive to the peninsula. Would highly recommend a stay here.

great location

  • 4 of 5

Great location, just few feets from water. We stayed in oct with my 2 kids and friends, the cabin was neat and clean, has everything what you need. The cabin location is what we liked the most, the woods on the back of cabin and water on other side is awesome!! The weather was nice in mid of October, however, the pier/dock shown in the photos was not there. The sugar creek county park is just 5 min walk gives another nice view of lake.

Great location and view

  • 4 of 5

Nice home with a great view. Great location between Green Bay and the rest of Door County as we came for a Packer game and to explore. Easy to find off the main highway. Anything we needed in the house was available and it was clean upon arrival. A nice affordable place to stay.

Very Disappointing

  • 1 of 5

The entrance to the property is down a steep hill. If you are the least bit disabled getting into the property involves going down and up stairs. Upon arrival, before entering, we found that the 75' Pier/Dock, which was in the advertised photo, has been removed for the season. When we entered the "so called" remodeled home, we are greeted with a strong musty, mildewy, moldy odor. Our clothes felt wet or damp all the while we were there, and all had to be washed when we got home to get the musty odor out. Although the weather was in the mid 70's and low 80's, with dew points in the mid 60's during our stay, the advertised the window air conditioners were removed and stored away. My wife, who has COPD, was coughing the entire time we were inside the structure. It was not clean, by our standards, and all dishes had to be washed before use. The coffee pot had to be cleaned with two cycles of vinager, before it could be used. The drain board for washed dished was filthy, and was cleaned thoroughly before we would use it. We broght our own pillows, towels and wash clothes and were thanklul that we did. We were advised, after the rental payments were made, that we needed to bring our own water. The well water obiously has a high sulphur content and the rotten egg smell is overwhelming. We were very close to just turning around and leaving shortly after we arrived, however since we were prepaid, we did not want to lose everything, and we stayed.

The marketing descrption for this property is exagerated.

There is much deffered maintenance (widows that do not work properly, oudated electrical service and outlets and the lack thereof).

The recommendation to use portable ceramic heaters if needed. (Old rusty baseboard electric heaters may not have been usable.)

I would not recommend this property to anyone and would probably will not use VRBO again.

After requesting a $500 refund from the owner, he agreed to give us a credit of $125 ($25 per day for no pier).

We owned a remodeled Lake Home for 28 years and for this property, the term "remodeled" is used very losely.

On a positive note, in our travels we did enjoy some sites in Door County and found a place where we will look forward to staying during our next visit to Door County.

Owner's Response: Yes there are three stairs from the parking area to the front of the cabin. You had asked about this before you rented it and you were informed. I have advertised that the pier is removed after Labor Day weekend and it’s in the rental agreement as well so there is no confusion in the future. The bedroom air conditioners are also removed after Labor Day. Sorry, I had checked the weather before your arrival and saw that the temperatures were going to be in the 50’s every night. I’m sorry to hear of your illness. I think most people wouldn’t want to stay in the bedrooms all day. Upon your arrival and call to me with these issues, you did not take the option to leave with a refund. You instead wanted to stay and get a credit of $500 (this is 2/3 of the rental fee). I didn’t think this was justified and did not want to have to pay the expenses (utility and cleaning costs) for you to stay at my home. I offered a credit for the troubles and you made the decision to stay. All windows to work properly. I do have filters on the well water, but do always recommend bottled water. I have not had any other complaints like yours in the past. While my place is not perfect, I do take pride in it, everything does work and I work very hard to keep everything up. The base board in the bathroom does have some surface rust on it. I’m replacing it even though it works.

Very relaxing,peaceful contry settng.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Everything was very clean, and comfortable. The cottage had everything you will need. The wood stove in the cottage was so cozy. We enjoyed the fire pit in the yard. Very private with breathtaking sunsets over the bay. Enjoying coffee in the morning on the back deck. The small grocery store in Brussels had everything we needed plus a great meat department will all fresh meats. The bacon, steaks, hamburgers and brats were so fresh. We enjoyed driving to upper Door County and taking in all the small towns. This was one of the most relaxing vacation ever. Fishing was so much fun.
