Great Property!

  • 5 of 5

Home away from home. This place was peaceful and clean. The waterfall and charcoal grill were excellent additions to the property and were well used. The fireplace was easy to use and warmed the place well. The rooms and bathroom were clean and comfortable. There was a tv and blue ray player as well as games to enjoy. The location is close to town but private as well. My family and I enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this property.

This cottage was one of the cleanest places I have rented to date. It was in a great location and the back yard was wonderful! Plenty of amenities and just perfect for our three night stay with my young boys. Thank you to Mark and Riane for sharing their cottage!

Great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We totally enjoyed the house. Not only was it comforrable but the large patio with the fire pit and grill made staying there fun. We watched birds at the feeder and turkeys on the ground and the waterfall made you feel completely at peace.

Location was great also, being close to our favorite town, Fish Cheek.

It was great!

The perfect place for quality family time!

Our 30-something professional son has lived in Chicago for a decade. This year, we decided it would be fun to get out of the city and go someplace none of us had ever visited. Door County! The verdict: “We nailed it!” We ALL loved Door County, and we loved our cottage. It was the ideal setup for this mini multi-generation weekend getaway. The location, right outside the sweet little hamlet of Fish Creek, is ideal! We hiked Peninsula State Park right from the property line. We rented bikes and explored even more of the park. The guys fished from the cute pier in Ephraim. Being from Florida, the gas fireplace was a cozy novelty for two of us. Every evening, my son collected kindling from the woods and built a fire for us in the fire ring. Every morning, we enjoyed our coffee while watching the birds—and turkeys!—through the huge glass picture window. Idyllic! Fish Creek has a number of delicious dining choices; we especially enjoyed the “only in Door County” fish boil. Except for Chicago, my husband and I have never experienced the Midwest. Shame on us! It is HUGE fun! The Great Lakes are gorgeous! We even had the good fortune to pick the weekend when there was a festival in nearby Sister Bay. “Beginnings” is cozy, comfortable and scrupulously clean. The coded entry was far more convenient than the usual keys. The cookies and crisp apples were hugely appreciated. Thanks! My only grumble—and it’s a wee one—would be a little more advance “locals know” guidance on the best places to provision wine and groceries for those who are flying in. The Fish Creek Market is quite limited and expensive.
