Relaxing place to enjoy the Thanksgiving weekend

  • 5 of 5

We needed a nice quite place to stay during the long Thanksgiving weekend. This place was quite, clean and spacious for a family of 4. The beds were all very comfortable and the kitchen is well equiped. It’s off the beaten path not on the main road, which was great for some R&R. While there we saw 3 Blue Jays and a Cardinal outside in the yard! We would come back again in the summer to enjoy all that Door county offers in season, but its just a nice off season too.

Good Visit to Fish Creek

  • 4 of 5

This house was ideal for our visit to Door County. Far enough away from Fish Creek to have the quiet of the countryside, Close enough to be right there for sharing in all of the amenities of Fish Creek and the other communities.

Cute, comfortable, clean

  • 5 of 5

A neat and extremely clean property with a beautiful backyard and water feature. Perfect place for our girls weekend. It was warm and comfortable indoors, which turned out to be a good thing because it was blustery, rainy and chilly outdoors. Has all updated amenities, with some old fashioned charm. Exceeded our expectations. The owners were responsive and prompt in their communication throughout the process. All in all, it was a great weekend, except for the minor detail of not getting the ROKU to work Sunday afternoon to watch the Packer game, which turned out to be a good thing, because after Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone, we all felt sick and went and visited some other friends who were in Egg Harbor. :-/

Cozy, charming cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved every minute of our stay. The cottage is so comfortable and inviting. We used the fireplace every morning and with the waterfall outside it was just wonderful. The fire pit was also a pleasure to use and sit back and see the millions of stars. The location is perfect, right outside Fish Creek.

The house has everything you could need to cook and serve. The house is very clean including the bedding and the towels.

Would highly recommend to anyone wanting a quiet cozy place to stay in Door County.

Perfect Private Place in Door County

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I reconnected with old neighbors for our 30th wedding anniversaries. We really enjoyed our stay. The house just the right size. The beds were very comfortable and everything newly updated. Best part was the private wooded yard with rock waterfall, fire pit and bird feeder. The living room picture window looked out on this beautiful yard and was a great place to sit and talk. The house is located far enough from crowds but still close to the best cities in Door County: Fish Creek, Egg Harbor, and Sister Bay.

Great house. Great location.

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I highly recommend this great property. It is very private and has all the amenities you could possibly want: fireplace, fire pit, fully stocked kitchen, laundry. Nice, quite location close to the action. Beautiful landscaping, lots of bird watching through the many picture windows. Very easy to get to town via bicycle or car. Comfortable living room, bedrooms, and eat-in kitchen open to the living room. I highly recommend it for one or two couples or a small family.
