Talk about a relaxing spot to spend a week!

  • 5 of 5

This is a special spot! The house's location was the perfect blend of feeling out of the way and at the same time super accessible to downtown Ellison Bay- we walked down almost every morning to the dog friendly coffee shop! The view, animal sightings, star gazing, nightly reading on the cozy screened porch and overall feeling of "ahh" left us all eager to come back!

Beautiful house and location but no AC

  • 3 of 5

This home is lovely, inside and out. It's situated on high ground overlooking trees and the bay, with lots of windows and a screened porch to enjoy the view. Inside, everything is comfortable and tasteful. The house does not have cable TV or Wi-Fi, but there is a big TV and a selection of DVDs and board games. I would've called it a perfect vacation spot except there is no air conditioning! Beware, if you are looking at renting in July or August. The thermostat inside the house reached 93 on a couple of the days we stayed, and the nights were sweaty and uncomfortable. We looked for reasons to stay in town so we didn't have to go back to the house. At one point, we almost left and went home. I called Lori and she was very kind and aplogetic and said the heat wave was highly unusual and they typically never need air conditioning. Luckily, it did cool off on the last day or two, and it felt like vacation again.

Warm and Inviting with a spectacular view!

  • 5 of 5

Lori and Marc were so easy to work with. The home is cozy and updated(unlike others that we have rented). Private lot with access to a great walking trail. Water view is awesome. Comfy beds, clean and charming. Can't wait to get back. My doggies had the best time too!

Perfect Setting

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful house is like being perched in the cutest tree house. It sits high on a hilltop and is surrounded by trees and looking out over the treetops, one sees a beautiful view of the lake. The eclectic decorating makes for a comfortable lived in feeling that is a totally relaxing atmosphere. The kitchen is so well stocked that we were able to cook most everything we wanted to. A wonderful assortment of books awaits those that just want to sit on the fabulous screened porch or rest in front of a fire burning in the log fed fireplace. The firepit was so nice and a great place to make special memories cooking smores and telling campfire stories. This very clean well lit home is an A++++ on my list of places to revisit.

What a delightful place!

  • 5 of 5

Coming to Door County is always one of the highlights of our year.

Stayed here for the first time and just loved everything about it. This home is filled with light and ever changing panoramic views. What a charming place, and it is stocked with everything you need or could want allowing you to immediately feel relaxed and at home. We would recommend this home for anyone coming to Door County.

My husband and I rented this Door County home for a long weekend in September to celebrate our 30th anniversary. Our two sons and their wives joined us. Everything in this home was wonderful! The view is absolutely gorgeous. The home is tucked away in the woods so it is very secluded yet you are only minutes from the main road and all Door County has to offer. We enjoyed the screened porch for card games and dominoes and the home has plenty of room to spread out. We also enjoyed the fireplace in the evenings. The weather hindered using some of the outdoor amenities but a fire pit, grill and picnic table were available for use. The owners have thought of most everything you may need. We have rented other homes and had problems with uncomfortable beds, but that was not the case here - would have loved to take it home with me! :) I would recommend renting this home. It definitely has that "Door County" feel!
