Overview

Jacksonport House Rental Photos and Description

3-4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, sleeps 12 or more

I am excited to tell you about a truly 'one of kind' location in Door County with a 'one of kind' home! On the 'Quiet Side' of Door County there is a 'Dream Home' that is literally on the borderline of the Whitefish Dunes State Park. The views are nothing short of amazing. As you look out the gigantic picture windows and skylights you will see beautiful white birch trees, an assortment of evergreen trees, huge sand dunes and a variety of wildlife including birds and whitetail deer.

Imagine.. a beautiful 4000 Square Foot Custom Built Home - with lots and lots of big windows and sky lights - that is built on the borderline of a State Park. Our home is nicely nestled in the Woods on top a huge Sand Dune that overlooks beautiful Lake Michigan. Take a 3-5 minute walk down our dune to a beautiful Sand Beach - the sand on the beach is so clean that it 'squeaks' when you walk on it. You will absolutely love our beach! Relax and build sand castles with your kids.

House Details: When you are not out hiking trails or walking the beach relax in a vacation home that is ideal for large groups of family members and friends. Use up to 4 bedrooms, 2 more 'open concept' bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths and sleeping for 12-17 adults and children.

While you relax in the great room by the Fireplace your kids or friends can Party in the rec room with Ping Pong, Electric Darts, Card Table, Cable TV-DVD and Wireless Internet. Enjoy a family meal in our sun room with seating for up to 10 on the Sun Room table and 3 more at the snack bar.

Relax with a book in the cozy den area. Have a nice dinner using our Gas BBQ grill on our back deck with incredible views of the woods and huge sand dunes. Visit the Crow’S Nest to get away from it all and take in the awesome views of Lake Michigan & the Park!

The Door County Dream Home and the surrounding area will call you back year after year.

Peaceful and serene vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 10 stay very comfortably in this quiet and serene location. We had a wonderful time gathering in the kitchen which flowed into the living room area. The central point of the large living room is a 3-sided beautiful fieldstone fireplace - perfect for a snowy weekend like we had. The road is very private, and our group walked and enjoyed the sound of the waves as well as the natural beauty of the area. As the house is nestled in close proximity to Whitefish Dunes, and easy access to the park, it would be a cross-country skiers perfect place to stay! The crows nest was really something special. When in that room you could easily get lost in the views of Lake Michigan - just gorgeous. It was a house that felt like it was built for comfort and warmth. Our group is eagerly looking forward to our next getaway at the Dream Home next winter! Two things to note - the driveway is very steep, with the fresh snow, one of our cars couldn't make it all the way up! (Snow was promptly cleared and drive was salted), if you are looking for firewood, there is a house about a mile from the house selling cords. The Foodmart in Valmy does not sell it, but has a great selection for a small store! Great house, highly recommend!

Great Place for a Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We had a mini family reunion this past September. This house and location were a perfect fit for our group of 12 people. There are excellent views out of nearly every window and skylight. There is a Crow’s Nest on top of the roof that provides a wonderful view of the Whitefish Dunes State Park and beautiful Lake Michigan. The house is smartly spread out so it never seemed like we were on top of each other. Our kids liked hanging out in the Rec Room and played many games of ping pong. The parents spent most of the time relaxing by the fire. We also took several hikes in the Whitefish Dunes and along the shores of Lake Michigan. The entire area is absolutely gorgeous. One day we visited a restaurant bar nearby called the Hitching Post. I highly recommend their cheese curds. We also treated ourselves to one night of fine dining at The Glidden Lodge restaurant which is just over a mile away. We absolutely loved the house and location - it was exactly as described. We have already made plans to return again next year.

Vircks Group

  • 4 of 5

All of the women from my immediate family have traveled every year for the past 8 years, to Door County for our "Girls Gone Mild" getaway. Our family is growing and with the aging of our Mom, we could no longer do the multilevel condo we were accustomed to. Outside of the stairs from the garage for her to get in, everything else important being on one level was a big plus. I think we found our new home away from home in Door County.

First Stay in Door County Hit the Jackpot!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Door County, and we made this a family reunion trip with my parents, our kids, and my brother and his wife and 4-year-old. The house was absolutely perfect for us! Only a short walk to the most beautiful beach in all of Door County that we could find while there. We checked out other public beaches, but none compared. It was great being on the "quiet side" of the peninsula, away from the hustle of other tourists. When we wanted to do something else in Door County, we just hopped in the car and drove down the rode a bit to our daytime destinations - the property is somewhat centrally located to most of the tourist spots. In the evenings we could relax and enjoy the sound of the lake waves that sounded like the ocean. Our kids loved the ping pong table, we used it a lot! We also enjoyed the sand dune with fire pit at night and roasted marshmallows and gazed at the stars. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed to cook our own meals. The gas grill worked fine also. I highly recommend this place, whether you are a veteran vacationer to Door County or a first timer... you won't be disappointed!

Our Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at this home for the past 5 years. We keep coming back because we have so many great memories of building sand castles, hiking in the dunes and watching the waves crash on to the shoreline. The entire Whitefish Dunes area is very beautiful and the 1 mile walk to the Nature Center at Cave Point is well worth the effort! The sand beach is amazing.

We love hanging out in the house playing ping pong, enjoying a meal in the sun room or relaxing by the fireplace. Our kids like playing in the “Crow’s Nest” and performing on the “cat walk” stage. We are anxiously awaiting our next visit in June 2013.

Great Place for a Big Family

  • 5 of 5

We spent one of our nicest family vacations here in August 2012. The home was perfect for our 3 families. We all like to cook so we enjoyed the nice kitchen area – we had seats for all 14 members of our group. The house is big enough that we never felt like we were on top of one another. There is the rec room, great room and several other rooms. Our favorite place to hang out and relax was on the sand beach. The depth of the water increases very gradually so it is very safe for the toddlers in our group. You are also able to walk for miles in either direction. The beach has beautiful, clean white sand. Our older kids loved swimming in the waves and making castles out of sand. We did have an issue with the hot tub during our stay but the owner was very quick to respond. We are looking forward to coming back in the near future.
