  • A relaxing and comfortable weekend escape in the woods

    "This house was just perfect for a quiet weekend get-away in winter. Carolyn was wonderful; she met us at the door, gave us a dozen fresh eggs from free-range chickens, showed us all of the amazing amenities and how they worked, and made sure that we were comfortable throughout our stay. She provided great recommendations for a nearby organic food market (Waseda Farms), and the kitchen was amazingly well stocked with spices, oils, cookware, dishes, utensils, etc., ideal for cooking our own gourmet meals. The house is tucked into a cedar forest behind the Rowleys Bay Resort at the far end of the road. While there are some neighboring houses, the vegetation provides good screening and seclusion. The inside of the house is decorated with fascinating artifacts from around the world; it was fun to explore. The fireplace was a perfect retreat on the cold winter nights. A unique sunroom, sunken partially into the ground, had a relaxing jet tub with windows that looked out into the cedar forest; you feel surrounded by the woods. We appreciated all of the small touches that made our experience comfortable and homey... active bird feeders, heated floors, a good selection of music, books, and movies, Wi-Fi, locally made soap, decorative lighting, etc. You really feel that the house has been cared for. We hiked several trails around the area, including one near the property that winds from the back of the Rowleys Bay Resort to beautiful Sand Bay Town Park. Don't miss the Lynn Point/Fern loop trail at nearby Newport State Park, and the new nature center and boardwalk at The Ridges Sanctuary in Baileys Harbor. This was a wonderful place to stay on our winter weekend adventure, and we look forward to coming back in the future."

  • Glorious Retreat with an Emphasis on Peacefulness & Relaxation

    "Summer's Joy exceeded our expectations as we returned to Sister Bay, the location of our honeymoon 34 years ago. This was a surprise Door County getaway for us and Summer's Joy was a perfect escape-to-the-shore location. The cottage was adorable; quaint and cozy, stocked with every necessity. The landscaping was meticulous, beautiful and relaxing. An absolute treasure, rich with history and a perfect setting to get away from it all. Thank you very kindly, Alan and Jean, for sharing your Door County gem with us. We enjoyed exploring Door County; including stops to the various orchards, farm markets and shops. Dining highlights included Al Johnson's for breakfast, The Post Office for a traditional fish boil and the Harbor Fish Market & Grille for a scrumptious lobster boil. We definitely will not wait 34 years to return to Summer's Joy and will certainly recommend this charming setting to others!"
