Deborah Homan purchased this chateau / country house in 2007
It is a one of a kind property...the entire CLAN can be under one roof, but not under foot. Spacious and respectful of privacy as well as many large gathering spots for the entire group or family. IT IS AWESOME!
Close to everything, private and secluded - fabulous property manager who has only your comfort and enjoyment in mind. It is like having your own private INN - with all the amenities at your fingertips.
More than what we expected. Lots of space for a large group. The location is ideal and close to everything. The fire pit was a great gathering place in the evenings. The kitchen was huge for the many cooks that were in our group. It's clean warm and inviting. There are multiple areas great for lounging and group activities.
Our group of 14 - 16 people (couples) come back to this home every year for our cross-country ski trip. It has all the amenities you could possibly want, and more. It is very clean, warm and inviting, and we enjoy being able to spread out and lounge around before we begin our activities. In addition to skiing, we like to hike, snowshoe, etc. We would highly recommend this property to anyone that is looking for a bit of heaven!! You won't be disappointed.
Can't wait for next year!!
We could not have had a better experience at Sweetbriar. We have four newly married children and they loved having their own space that felt like a romantic retreat, with luxurious baths and seating areas by their own fireplaces. Four poster beds, wingback chairs, and tastefully decorated suites felt like a special retreat. Their were several gathering spaces in the home--a sun porch area for doing puzzles and playing games, or just rocking in the wicker rockers enjoying morning coffee... a family room with a fireplace and wine bar, and a living room with a large television where we all gathered to watch the Cub's game! We had 16 of us gathered around the dining room table and the KITCHEN!! The kitchen was perfect for FIVE of us cooking at the same time--true perfection!
We have been doing this family reunion in Door County for over 60 years and we hope to make Sweetbriar our 'home' during our fall celebration.
Would highly recommend!
Sweetbriar was a big part of why our family gathering was such a success. The house is well maintained, beautifully decorated, the best stocked kitchen of any vacation rental, and with several "gathering areas". The grounds are also beautiful and it's nice to be on a large piece of property that offers privacy. While we spent a lot of time around the large kitchen island, we play cards so having a dining table to accommodate that is critical and Sweetbriar's was perfect. Loved the fire pit but spent most of the time enjoying the beautiful weather on the large deck with plenty of seating for our group. Just as important as the "gathering area" is the ability to escape and each bedroom with an ensuite, sitting area, and most with fireplaces gave everyone the opportunity to just that. Additionally there were several large TV's for those who needed their sports fix. I highly recommend this property and will be back.
This house was perfect for our annual family weekend! There were 4 generations together under one roof! The house was handicap accessible for the oldest in our group. The bedroom suite with attached nursery was perfect for the youngest in our family. The house had everything we needed. We especially enjoyed hiking through the trails around the property, sitting around the firepit and watching the Packers beat the Bears on Sunday afternoon! Dinner at the Mission grill, celebrating two birthdays, was excellent. Highly recommend this property.
This review is long overdue. We stayed at Sweetbriar in September. We all loved it! The bedrooms, the kitchen, the dining room, the sunroom, the deck, the fire pit -- where do I begin? It all came together to make it a wonderful vacation! The location is excellent, too. The owner thinks of everything for the comfort of guests and it is very much appreciated! We definitely will be back.
Sweetbriar is centrally located for easy access to Door County activities and shopping. After a day in the county, you will be happy to return to Sweetbriar your own 'special retreat'.
