Guestbook comments from the owner

"This place is so magical. We traveled all around Door County and stayed in many different places and none of them stood out like yours did. All of the different gardens and seating places with views of the woods and lake made our visit at the "Cro's Nest" very special. Your collection of knick knacks and art from around the world makes a great conversation piece in every room. We look forward to visiting again."

The View Is Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at the Cro's Nest for a week in August with my adult children and we had a wonderful time. The view was breathtaking and we spent many days sitting by the bonfire watching the seagulls and pelicans. There was an adorable chipmunk that visited us several times. The house was fully stocked with everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. We only had to purchase a few toiletries and laundry soap once we arrived. We cooked or grilled on the gas grill almost every night and loved having dinner in the sunroom. The steps to the water were a little scary the first time I went down, but they were fine after that. I don't think I would recommend them for children though. My husband did a little fishing off the dock and caught several fish. We didn't swim off the dock since there wasn't really a beach area of any kind, but you could jump off the dock into the water if you wanted to or walk into the water on the large rocks. We swam at several of the local beaches and had a great time. The owner Jack was very friendly and helpful. The home was clean and ready for us to enjoy our stay when we arrived. We would definitely recommend the house. We all had a wonderful vacation and would be happy to return again in the future.

Outstanding Home

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful home and property! We stayed for a long, 4-day weekend, and had a great time. The home has everything you could possibly need or want during a vacation, regardless of length. Great accommodations for a small family, as well as a larger one, as was our case. It is close to everything and will definitely return again! Thank you very much Nick for opening up your home to us!

Loved it! Third time visit!

  • 5 of 5
Our family returned to the Cro's Nest this June and loved it as much as ever! we enjoyed the beautiful view, read in the living room, and spent two full days down at the dock, swimming and sunning.

We enjoyed eating in the screen porch and cooking in the ease to use kitchen.

Your table outside under the awning was also lovely.

Thank you sharing for this beautiful home with our family!
