Lisa and Todd live near Baltimore, Maryland but both have paternal roots in the midwest. They love good food, good wine, and slow travel and want to share their love of hedonism with you!

Todd or Lisa purchased this chalet in 2012

My grandfather Edward bought this property around 1970 and it passed to my father in 2004. My father and I cleared the home site together in 2008 in preparation for my parents to build but they both passed away before construction could begin. Lisa and I had fallen in love with the area and decided to continue their plans to build a home here in Door County. My mother named it Five Birches after the grove of birch trees outside the master bedroom.

Our favorite things about Five Birches is that it is essentially our own design, the proximity to Fish Creek and the bay, and the private meadow down the trail from the house.

Great Girls Weekend

A group of us had the pleasure of staying in your home for a girls get away weekend. The location is perfect and the home is simply amazing! We did snow shoeing, attended the local Fish Creek Winter Festival, and then did some snowmobiling in Peninsula Park and up the Peninsula. The trails were perfect and you could hop on them just over a 1/4 of a mile from your back door! We had such an incredible time and your home had all the amenities needed for socializing, playing and resting! Thank you again. Our group already wants a return visit!!!

Great Winter Weekend

We found this rental after our typical winter cabin was unavailable this year. After a little confusion about our check-in day was settled, we had a wonderful stay. The kitchen is great for cooking - it has to be the best stocked kitchen I've seen in any rental - and there is plenty of room to hang out and socialize while cooking. In general, the house has plenty of room to spread out and with eight adults there, we never felt cramped.

There is a great information booklet about the house and nearby activities and services that came in very handy. It really seems as though they've thought of everything at this place. The only thing that threw us for a loop was the very minimal amount of toilet paper. Their instructions indicate that you should pack some and I highly recommend that you do. We ran out on our second day!

All in all a great place.

Great home-base for a relaxing and memorable long weekend

We went to Door County with two other couples for a getaway weekend. I had arranged to stay at Five Birches, and I was delighted to see everyone's jaw drop (including my own!) when we opened the front door. There is a "wow factor" to Five Birches. The house is so well-designed and beautiful that you immediately feel good to be inside. Nothing is cheap. The kitchen is fully stocked with nice appliances, and we spent the weekend cooking meals together very comfortably. The view from the living room is gorgeous. Three of the bedrooms are very well-suited for couples, and we actually didn't use the fourth bedroom with the two twin beds. The three bathrooms in the house made it easy to avoid bottlenecks in the morning.

The location is also fantastic. The cabin feels very isolated in the woods, but you are only five minutes from Fish Creek, so it is both convenient and private/quiet. We spent our days cross country skiing in Peninsula State Park (also five minutes away). The snow was fresh, and there were many trails to choose from.

Todd was great to deal with in advance of the stay. We had lots of phone conversations, and we sorted out the details completely, such that I did not have to contact him at all during the stay. WiFi worked perfectly. House was clean and ready when we arrived. The snow was cleared from the driveway.

The price was a bit of a stretch for us, but everyone agreed that the value exceeded our expectations.

Annual Door County Vacation

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 13, 2014
  • Stayed: Dec 2013
Our family consisting of my wife, 4 teenagers, my parents, and my brother and his fiance vacate to Door County every year and have been doing so for about 15 years. We have stayed at a number of places with varied satisfaction. We were scheduled to arrive on the 27th originally, however shortly after booking we changed our arrival date to the 26th. On our arrival date we received a call from Todd letting us know that the housekeeping service hadn't been updated on the change of arrival date so we wouldn't be able to arrive at our scheduled time. He indicated that it would be no earlier than 7pm that the home would be ready. He was very apologetic and offered recommendations on how to fill our time as we would be arriving earlier. Additionally he offered to purchase dinner for all 10 of us at The Wild Tomato! The wait at that restaurant was around 2 hours, so we went to Bayside Tavern just down the street. He still picked up the entire dinner! Way above and beyond in our book! The next morning the wireless didn't work and after a call to Todd the wireless was up and running. Aside from these two hiccups, we loved the place! The kitchen was great to work in. We do family dinners most nights. The proximity to all of the attractions that we wanted to go to was great. The reading selection was an excellent way to pass the time. We had access to all of the bowl games and the Packer game. There was plenty of storage for all of the food/beverages for the week. The grill was consistent even in the cold temps (steak for 10). The kids that slept in the loft thought that the house was very loud as everything echoed up to them. Both pro and con the TV is up in the loft so, no TV in the morning for us early risers. We instead watched the sunrise through the pine and birch trees, the deer mill about, and the birds hunt for food. All in all the lodging, and owners were great! After we were back home and settled into our routine I received a call from Todd letting me know they found the cuff links that I gave my brother for Christmas and had shipped them back to me. (Thanks again Todd!) As a comparison to other places that we have stayed, this is one of the top two. The setting, the quality, the ambiance, the owners... all top notch! If anyone would like further information please call me at 715-396-1395. We plan booking again!

Great

As of our stay, the property wasn't even a year old, so it is in new condition, very excellent. The great supply of books and games is terrific if the weather happens to be bad.
The owners were very accommodating and understanding. Many places to eat and shop close by, even biking distance. The pictures say it all. Hope to stay there again.
