About Nadine Brooke

The Brooke Family

Jim, Nadine, Jake & Ryan

Nadine Brooke purchased this house in 1997

Why Nadine Brooke chose Door County

Our family has vacationed in this area since 1980 and found Ellison Bay to be one of the best areas in Door County. We love the outdoors and this location allows us to bike, hike, kayak, fish and enjoy local restaurants! Every year we find something new to enjoy. This year we discovered paddle boarding!

What makes this house unique

Our home is privately located and we really enjoy the wooded setting. The yard and woods offers a great place for kids (and adults) to play and relax! We have done many upgrades to the house to make it a comfortable, inviting place to stay. We have guests that have been coming back each year for the last 15 years!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Second stay at Brooke Haven (twelve years visiting Ellison Bay). Still discovered a few new routes for biking and hiking. Visited favorite galleries nearby and enjoyed a wonderful dinner at T. Ashwells less than 2 miles from the house! Thank you for sharing your home with us again this year.

Perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

Brooke Haven was a perfect haven for our long family weekend. With 4 teens, it can be hard to find activities and accommodations that suit everyone. Brooke Haven came pretty close.

The house had lots of room with reminders of Grandma's house -- very comfortable. Not fancy, not rustic or camping. Perfect. We liked the location -- close to shopping, state parks, ferry, and lots of good restaurants. The two bikes were used quite a bit! Just writing this review makes me want to go back. Communication with the owner was very good. Thanks for sharing your home!

Brooke Haven

  • 5 of 5

Our family found Brooke Haven after the home we used to rent for 25 years in Ellison Bay went up for sale. We were very glad to have located Brooke Haven through the web site.. The home is beautifully decorated with hardwood floors. It seemed as if every member of our family was able to have their own area to get away between the family room, living room, 3 season porch, and lovely yard. Our sons especially enjoyed the back yard for games of bags, and the bikes were used almost daily. Our 1 and a half year old grandson even started to say "home" when we would pull into the driveway.

My husband and I located a new beach while we were at Brooke Haven. Our sons knew of it, but my husband and I couldn't believe after all these years we would discover a new beach. It's the Liberty Grove town beach. Start out at Brooke Haven and turn left at the Pioneer store. Keep going straight to the T. Turn left at the T and go a block or so where you turn right into the beach. The beach is all sand, and shallow for a long way out, There is a nice shaded area, and great for all ages.

Our favorite restaurants are The Viking in Ellison Bay, and The Ice Cream Factory in Sister Bay.

We do higfhly recommend staying at Brooke Haven.

Brooke Haven is definitely a haven. My family of four thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your home. Thank you. We had so much room - I definitely can see the house big enough for a larger family. The house had everything we needed -- the kitchen was complete, the showers were hot, the beds were comfortable ... the house had all the amenities we needed for a perfect vacation.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Brooke Haven! All of the communication ahead of time was thorough and prompt. It was so comfortable and roomy enough for three couples and our three toddlers. The guys especially liked the ping pong table. I found this to be the most reasonable price in the area for the type of house, and I would recommend it to anyone visiting the area. Thanks!

Our family's history with...

  • 5 of 5

Our family's history with Door County goes back to

1981 when my wife and I, still courting, spent a

weekend with friends, just outside of Sturgeon Bay.

We toured the entire peninsula that weekend and

fell in love with this county. The following summer

we married and made Sister Bay our honeymoon

site for a week. After a long hiatus we returned to

Door County near Kangaroo Lake for two summers,

where we rented a small house from a colleague of

mine. Finally, about 9 years ago, my wife landed on

Brookhaven on the internet, a cape cod home in

Ellison Bay for rent. It was love at first site for our

family. Now, after 8 or 9 consecutive years of

rental, we consider it our second home. It is a full

size house, with spacious rooms--very unlike a

typical cramped summer home. The upstairs is a

large loft that my sons have claimed for their

haunt. Downstairs are two lovely bedrooms and a

four seasons room, that I have made my own bed

for the week. The kitchen has every amenity one

would need for cooking or baking. There is a TV

room off the kitchen with all the stations one needs

plus a full size living room, all comfortably

furnished. The basement even holds some allure

with its ping pong table. For me the greatest part

of the house is its location. It is off the beaten path

of all the sites we used to visit in our early years. Its

backyard is a veritable forest of large old trees that

provide great shade all day long and the alluring

sound of the wind. Being in Brookhaven is as if no

one else is around. Only a mile down the road is

Garrett Bay where we have chosen to swim and take

in our kayak rentals on occasion. As you can see I

can't say enough positive about this home. It is a

treat and worth every penny of the weekly rental.

The owners maintain the property and house

immaculately and are most gracious with us, their

renters. Our only hope is that they don't sell it or

move into it permanently. We would be most sad.
