"This was the perfect vacation home for 8 sisters traveling to Door County. It was right on the main road in Fish Creek and within walking distance to anything we needed. With a coffee shop next door, fantastic restaurants and shopping just down the street in one direction, Peninsula State Park just a short drive in the other direction, and the beach right across the street, we couldn't have chosen a better location. The home itself was great. The front porch was perfect for relaxing, reading, napping, and enjoying that early morning cup of coffee. The bedrooms were all very spacious and bright, especially those with views of the beach. It got a little warm in Wisconsin the first night, but the attic fan upstairs kept the rooms cool and comfortable. The beds were all very comfortable. On the first floor the living area was large, open and spacious, with plenty of room for a large gathering to enjoy time together.
The owner was pleasant and easy to work with. She even emailed me ahead of time with ideas for day trips to the lighthouses, wineries and sailing (all of which we took advantage of).
The only drawback was lack of electric outlets in the bathrooms (We knew ahead of time that with 8 girls, two bathroom and only one shower we would need to bring extra extension cords to do hair and makeup in our bedrooms), and the fact that we "blew a fuse" when more than two people used a blow dryer at the same time. Both things were easily remedied, but it's something that's nice to know ahead of time.
The photos posted on the VBRO/Home Away website of this home are just what you will see when you arrive. The home was clean and the lawn mowed.
Highlights of the trip were the lighthouses in Peninsula State Park and on Cana Island, an early morning sail on the Edith M. Becker schooner out of Sister Bay, and the Peninsula Players Theater right in Fish Creek. We loved the outside fire pit and sunset over Green Bay and laughed our heads off watching Alfred Hitchcock's "The 39 Steps".
I would recommend this home, Fish Creek and Door County Wisconsin in general to anyone seeking a vacation that can be both relaxing and exciting."
