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 Gardner

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

Very nice, clean, affordable cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is located about 100-200 feet from the water with an unobstructed view from the front deck and living room window for great sunsets. With a lawn leading down to the water and kayaks and swimming at the property, all the benefits of a house on the lake are here. The cottage is well equipped and well maintained. The only point that may concern a renter is that, like many lake properties, it is on well water, which, even with a filter, delivers a distinct lake smell, so bottled water is necessary for drinking.

Lovely, private, lakeside retreat.

  • 5 of 5

Pat's cabin was just what we needed. Off the beaten track and at the start of Door County's picturesque drive into National Parks and adorable towns. The cabin was clean and roomy, great view straight onto the lake. We'd gladly come back again - thank you Pat!

Lovely home on the water

  • 5 of 5

This is a quaint home on a piece of lovely shorefront. Our family loved hanging out in the yard, on the deck, swing, pier, on the boat house deck, in the water and the kayaks. The owners have the home well-stocked. The rooms are comfortable, the grill worked great and the fire pit and kayaks were awesome bonuses. Pat was so easy to deal with. He was responsive and interested in our comfort etc but not too invasive. This allowed us to settle in easily and claim his lovely home for a week! I highly recommend this property for anyone looking to get away and spend some time relaxing on the water. Oh, the sunsets! Gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

The home was nice and clean. The boathouse was full of things to use. We used the kayaks, bag game, swing, fire pit etc. We experienced beautiful sunsets. I would definitely take my family back.
