About Beth Collins

We are two families, total of 5 children ranging in age from 18 to 6.

Beth Collins purchased this house in 2013

Why Beth Collins chose Door County

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.

What makes this house unique

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. We love that we can walk to Fish Creek, yet be in a private, tucked-away place with beautiful surroundings. We love that it is a safe place for our kids to play.

Beautiful home, lots of room for our families, close to everything in Door County!

  • 5 of 5

This home was beautiful, and there was plenty of room for the eleven of us! 7 adults and four young kids/grandkids ages 1-5. We enjoyed grilling on the patio, preparing breakfast in the spacious kitchen, kids playing in the large backyard and bonfires at night. There's plenty of puzzles, books and games if it rains. There were some scattered showers, during our week, but mostly beautiful weather. The location,was great, close to everything we wanted to do and there is so much to do in Door County! Our family enjoyed hiking, fishing, the beaches and activities at the nature center in Peninsula State Park,. One evening we went to Wilson's in Ephraim for ice cream and the fabulous sunset. The little ones enjoyed Plum Loco Farm, and lunch at PC Junction. Everyone from Great -Grandma to the 1 year old really loved the fish boil! We spent a day at Whitefish dunes. The time went so fast and we loved our family time together! The home is great - we are hoping to be back again soon!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words. Door County really is the best for a family vacation and glad to hear that you had so many fun things to do and made some great memories! The house has a couple of great spaces for small children, especially, but glad to hear that the adults were comfortable too. Come back soon! Although we've been coming for 15 years, we discover new places each time...

Great location for a girl's weekend, but would also be perfect for 4 (or more) couples.

The layout is good, the rooms are spacious, nice furnishings and finishes. The yard and fire pit are fun. Lots of privacy. We really enjoyed our stay. No complaints, which is amazing for us. Would rent again, for sure.

Lovely house, with plenty of room for 6 women.

  • 5 of 5

My five friends and I thoroughly enjoyed staying at this house. Three of us shared the king bedroom (I slept on the daybed) and we giggled like we were teenagers...we're in our 50s. One friend slept in the very top bedroom and she felt challenged walking up and down the stairs. The house was very clean and we had most everything we needed to prepare our meals. We played bags in the backyard and lit a fire in the pit. Shopped in Fish Creek and spent a lot of quality time at the house. A perfect retreat for we city girls who needed a getaway. We will consider coming back in 2018 as we will be visiting Michigan this year.

The property was great.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was in order. The owners are exceptionally friendly and very easy to work with. The cottage is well suited for groups (or single people even) to explore Door County. We had a a number of people visit during our two week stay, most of whom had never been to Door County before. Every person who stayed at the place remarked as to how nice the property was and how well located it was for visiting all over the Door. Definitely a place to return to.
