Great space for relaxation

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was packed with family and friends-it accommodates many people comfortable. The rooms and common spaces are spaced in a way that allowed for great conversation, cooking, games, and more. The surrounding outside area is beautiful! The kitchen was well-stocked with utensils and plates-we were able to cook many meals comfortably. The price was reasonable and we would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful secluded property

  • 5 of 5

The Dogg House is a wonderful place. My girlfriend and I had a spectacular romantic getaway weekend. I would also think this place would work for a nice family getaway as well with plenty of room for everyone. Loved the wood burning fireplace for those chilly nights and crisp mornings. Will likely be back next year!

We had a great time this winter when we stayed at the Dogg house! It was a perfect getaway for our 5 year anniversary, and at a reasonable price. It was a close drive to places we wanted to go and things to see. Would definitely stay again! Thank you!

Great place!

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful place to stay! Our girls trip - bachelorette party was great and we enjoyed looking at all of the history in the cabin! Very cool! We were a little disappointed the fooseball table wasn't there but it didn't break our trip any. The winding stairs were also in need of repair. Otherwise thumbs up !

The place was very bad maintained

  • 1 of 5

This was a lovely place just as shown in the photos. But it was very poorly maintained. There were a lot of things that went wrong while we were there for 3 days.

- When we arrived the toilet was clogged. I called the owner and he said that it was cleaned before we arrived and asked if there was a plunger that I could use to open it up without suggesting he could come over and clean it. So we had to clean other people's clogged bathroom.

- The shower head is mostly clogged and water comes out only from a couple of the holes on the shower head. So taking a shower is definitely not easy.

- The grill outside was out of gas. So we could not use it and ended up giving up on grilling altogether.

- The address that the owner had given us was a google maps address that took us to nowhere. After calling him numerous times, he realized that google must have changed the address and he had to give us directions turn by turn to get to the property. We were lucky he picked up his phone. Otherwise we would have ended up without a staying place.

- The fireplace was out and the directions to turn it on were not working. We had to call their maintenance guy to come over and fix it. But we were freezing for the first 2 hours of our stay.

- There were about 50 dead flies near the window on the top floor. So everything was covered in flies near the window and we were disgusted to touch anything.

- One of the lamps in the living room was burned out and when we asked the maintenance guy to fix it he said he will come over tomorrow to fix it. But he never showed up. We ended up switching one of the lamps in the bedroom with the one in the living room so there would be enough light.

All of these could have been prevented if the place was checked before we arrived and was correctly maintained. The owner did not even suggest to give us a discount because of all of these problems. If the place was correctly maintained, it would have become one of our most favorite places to stay in door county as it is a beautiful place.

Owner's Response: I just read your review and apologize for your poor experience. We had a recent loss in the family and I had to take over managing the property, but I live in Madison and couldn't offer to come clean up and since the issue was resolved I didn't think it warranted having a maintenance person come. We have addressed the issues described and I have had conversations with the cleaning and maintenance staff to ensure they don't happen in the future. We hadn't received any other previous reports of the showerhead etc., thank you for the feedback so we can continue to improve guest experience. I wasn't aware of the additional issues you experienced and we certainly would've brought gas out for the grill if we had know or been contacted. We typically relied on guests to inform us if it ran out and didn't check the grill each time but will add this to the checklist. The furnace was fully functioning but wasn't turned up since it has been a very mild Fall. Sorry the fireplace wasn't immediately available to help heat the cottage faster. I have added additional information on the directions given to guests, but the address was correctly stated and I cannot control how Google or other map software gives directions. I would also like to clarify that I answered the phone within a minute of your original call. Definitely willing to discuss a partial refund or credit towards a future stay, feel free to contact me to discuss options. Thanks, Rockwell Rentals

Great stay, private and peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

This place was wonderful! The house had all the amenities you need, plates, cups, appliances, stove etc, etc. It was decorated with really unique antique pieces, very eclectic. Nice bar right in the center of the house for gathering and relaxing. It was SO peaceful and private, relaxing by the fire at night was amazing, could see so many stars even the Milky Way! House was clean overall a great value. Not a bad drive to most of the places in Door County, about 5-10 minutes from Downtown Sturgeon Bay. I will definitely be back!
