Property description

The open layout includes kitchen with plenty of space and storage, an island, a large dining table and large, bright windows. We have ensured that you will have what you need to enjoy time with your family and make memories to last a lifetime. Our home includes free internet access, two TVs and DVD players, DVD's, books, games, puzzles for all ages.

There is a large, private yard, both front and back for outdoor games, a fire pit and a beautiful patio and grill for outside entertaining. Read about our favorite shops, restaurants and activities as you plan your adventures. We provide all linens, but regret that we cannot allow pets or smoking in our home.

Why Fish Creek, WI, USA:
Door County is a place that have loved and traveled to from far distances for many years. Although we have traveled all over the country and the world, Door County is such a unique and beautiful place that offers so much variety for our family.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the feel of this home. It is warm, cozy and comfortable. The large windows enable you to feel like you are close to nature. We love the location, with proximity to Fish Creek, Peninsula and Ephraim, as well as being in the center of the peninsula.
