The perfect place for quality family time!

  • 5 of 5

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.

The perfect place to stay in Door County! Great location and comfortable home.

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd summer gong to Door County and stay at this Fish Creek home. We love it there even though it's a long drive from MPLS. We rent all the time on VRBO and this house is one of the most perfect rentals. The McLean's are such wonderful hosts you feel like they are friends. The house is so clean and the surroundings especially the backyard is beautiful. Can't wait to go again next summer.

Bright Modernized Home with Great Outdoor Space

  • 5 of 5

This property is located a convenient distance to all of Door County and especially close to the shopping and dining areas of Fish Creek which we found to be the area that stays open the latest at night. The pictures online do not show how bright and airy the living room / kitchen areas are so we were pleasantly surprised by all the natural light! This home was comfortable and extremely clean, ready for guests, including cookies on the table. The kitchen was very cute with its original character and the cabinet of Door County keepsakes. The owners checked in via texts to make sure of our arrival and that all was as expected. We spent most of our time at night outdoors on the patio enjoying fires in the fire ring. In the mornings we saw lots of birds, chipmunks and 2 majestic wild turkeys that strolled through the yard. Our family all enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this property!
