DARN NEAR PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful home, immaculately maintained with incredible views from the living room, three bedrooms and multiple decks. The pictures don't do it justice. Picturesque spot on the ledge with easy access to the beach below. Only minutes away by foot from Gills Rock and rest of northern Door County by car, the place feels wonderfully secluded and private. And a great kitchen for cooking to top it off. You won’t be disappointed!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

  • 5 of 5
Sky Ledge at Gills Rock / Ellison Bay is a wonderful destination! Our family – three couples, a one-year old toddler, and Herman the Dog -- spent the better part of a week at Sky Ledge and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. All of the amenities necessary for a vacation are in place at the house, and there are many wonderful restaurants and shops just a short drive away. And the location is spectacular! The back decks look out onto the Lake, and with steps down to the waterfront, we enjoyed a secluded spot with marvelous vistas. A lovely visit. Thanks, Dan!

WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5
My family (all adults) spent 3 nights here. It is a beautiful house with a great view. The pictures are true to life. We had a couple ants and no soap for the dishwasher one evening. I called the owner and he came out with soap and also sprayed for ants. We didn't see any ants after that. We appreciated how prompt he was. The house was clean and had everything we needed (except the dish soap). I would highly recommend staying here. It was great listening to the lake during the night.

A LOVELY SECLUDED HOME!

  • 5 of 5
A perfect vacation spot - going to sleep at night and waking in the morning to the sound of the water is just glorious. The house is very well appointed and great for a family or group of friends. So nice that it's dog-friendly too! The owners have added thoughtful touches to make things so easy, including convenient bins to separate trash and recycling, plenty of extra towels and an ultra-convenient first-floor laundry room. We loved the location, the view, and the plentiful comfy spots to sit, both inside and out. The beach is beautiful, but difficult to walk on, so we sampled plenty of other Door County beaches. The owners were terrific! We'd return for sure!

ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL VIEW AND ACCOMMODATIONS.

  • 5 of 5
My three daughters and our significant others along with three dogs (two Golden Retrievers and one Black Lab) spent three nights at this beautiful property. We were all amazed by how beautiful the house was and the view was spectacular. There was plenty of room for all including the dogs. One night was spent on the beach around the fire pit and another night we lit a fire in the fireplace. Most of our time was spent on the deck of the home while enjoying the breathtaking surroundings. The only caution I would give is that the rocky beach was very hard on our dogs paws and we had to limit the time we could spend down there with them. All in all a great trip!
