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.

BEAUTIFUL HOME

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay in this gorgeous home. The owners really have anticipated travelers' needs. For example, the kitchen had a great supply of dishes, pots and pans, spices, and even a high chair. The location is far enough from town to feel like you are in nature, but close enough to get to all of the key attractions easily. Rent this peaceful getaway without hesitation.

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
Five of us just returned from one of the best "girlfriends" vacations we have had in 15 years, thanks to this lovely house. As beautiful as the pictures we've dreamed on these past months, the house was so warm and inviting. And the view from the incredible windows facing a forest of pines and birch trees....breathtaking. We never got around to watching tv. Instead, we watched our woods for hours, a pair of woodpeckers feeding their babies in the hollow of a tree fascinated us...a storm made the trees sway.... We can't thankt the owners enough for their thoughtfulness not only in the house and its furnishings, but their care in answering any questions we have had. I, especially loved the extensive collection of wonderful books to explore and the computer to keep in touch with home. Bravo!

Owner's Response: We agree that the southern view from the great room is better than television - we're so glad you enjoyed it! We're also quite proud of our extensive book selection so it's always nice to hear that it is appreciated. We hope you and your party will be able to join us again!

GREAT GIRLS WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
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

  • 5 of 5
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.

Owner's Response: We couldn't be happier to hear that you found our kitchen to be well appointed. Cooking is a passion for us and we set out to provide a space where guests with similar interests would feel at home. We also worked very hard to provide a comprehensive welcome book and it's always nice to hear that it was appreciated. Hope to see you again!

GREAT HOME-BASE FOR A RELAXING AND MEMORABLE LONG WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
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.

Owner's Response: It is always a delight to hear kind comments on the design of our home as it is our own! We worked hard to make a space that was elegant as well as practical. We're glad to hear you enjoyed our kitchen - breaking bread with family and friends is one of our favorite ways to relax and reconnect.
