Dear Dan,

We had a lovely time at the house and can't thank you enough for providing those lounge chairs--they were used almost every day The house was great--just what we needed. We'll look forward to coming back again.

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!

Hi, We stayed here along with our 3 young children and had a very pleasant stay. The house is absolutely beautiful, the pictures do not do it justice! It is full of natural light and was very clean. It has a large deck and a gas grill where we BBQ'ed a few times. My wife ended up leaving her wallet at the house and the owner Dan went above and beyond to find and retrieve it for us, he is very kind and helpful. We had tons of fun by the fire pit at night roasting smores. It is a very quiet, secluded spot and just beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to come back again soon! We would recommend this place to everyone! Will & Melissa & family

Owner's Response: We always enjoy having extended families and friends come for a nice holiday together. We all pretty much have an idea how quickly the seasons melt away and it is important, I think, to make these special occasions happen.

Highly Recommended!

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!

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!
