About Christopher and Joni Dorr

My wife and I grew up in small town in Southern Wisconsin and have lived in this beautiful state most of our lives. We now live outside of Milwaukee and enjoy taking trips around the state.

Christopher and Joni Dorr purchased this house in 2009

Why Christopher and Joni Dorr chose Shawano Lake

Wanted to find a place to get together with the family, we found this home in need of some TLC and turned it into our families gathering place. Shawano is a wonderful community with plenty of hidden gems and the lake as the Crown Jewel. We hope other families and travelers will enjoy the area as much as we have.

What makes this house unique

We created a home that combines comfort and convenience to be enjoyed anytime of the year. It offers some unique features and plenty of room for friends or families to be together.

Beautiful spacious home in great location

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful home, with space to accommodate many and in a great location. I think our stay was an "off one", but I can't help but leave an honest truthful review based on our stay.

First, they so very kindly allow dogs! Major plus! And even allowed us to drop off one dog very early (noon) bigger plus!

We returned to the rental around 8pm, to find no toiler paper accessible in either restroom, there was a small amount on both existing rolls. Then to unwind for the rest of the night we went to watch TV,cable didn't work. DVD player works, but only had chilrens movies. I called management and was told where to find toiler paper (in a locked cabinet I was given the code to) and was also told they were aware cable box was out, this should've been disclosed at booking. The full size bed sits on a queen size frame, swing legs to get out of bed and back of knees catch the frame every time. White down comforter had big black stains in 3 spots on the day bed. There was cooked bacon left in the oven from previous renters.

While not completely necessary, I dont think I was expecting not to find any soap of any kind in showers nor coffee.

Again, I am sure this was an off stay, but when bought to managements attention, we received a sorry for the bacon.

overall a lovely home,perhaps we just happened to stay at a bad time.

I'd give this rental another chance!

Memorial day memories

  • 4 of 5

Having all my children and grandchildren under one roof in this charming remodeled home was the perfect way to kick off the summer. The huge dining room table was perfect for our home cooked meals and a night of games. The bedrooms were all comfortable and having two full baths with that tankless water heater was fantastic! Plenty of hot water for both showers to be running at once. The location was perfect--enjoyed exploring Shawano.. the SunDrop museum was so cute! A day trip to Bay Beach was an easy half hour drive--and everyone loved it.
