Darn Near Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home, immaculately maintained with incredible views from the living room, three bedrooms and multiple decks. The pictures don't do it justice. Picturesque spot on the ledge with easy access to the beach below. Only minutes away by foot from Gills Rock and rest of northern Door County by car, the place feels wonderfully secluded and private. And a great kitchen for cooking to top it off. You won’t be disappointed!

Perfect for families

  • 4 of 5

The home worked so well for our reunion as each family unit had their own bathroom and bedroom. The family room had beautiful views of the lake and we enjoyed playing cards on the deck. The fully stocked kitchen made it easy to prepare meals for all. We recommend others to use this for a quick getaway. Dan was easy to correspond with and we found the house stocked with items not usually included which was a plus for us. We take fond memories with us.

Loved Loved Loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

Like many of the other reviewer said that the picture don't do the justice for this beautiful house! The view from bedroom and living room is spectacular, we enjoyed watching sunrise and beautiful stars at night right on the deck. I was travelling with my parents, my aunt and two kids age 10 and 8 and our dog! There was still an extra bedroom left. Dan was very pleasant and easy to work with. He was also very generously stocked the house with anything you could think of: dish soap, paper towels to even boards games in the closet!! Very pleasant stay and will defiantly be back! Thank you!

Sky Ledge spoiled us; it’s so beautiful with a massive stone fireplace, an expansive living area with hardwood floors and a big deck overlooking beautiful Lake Michigan. We arrived, brought in our stuff, sat on the deck and let the awesome view and the pure fresh air sink into every pore. Birds were always visible – gulls, loons, warblers and an immature bald eagle. Even when our April weather turned blustery, the clean north wind drove breakers against the beach right below the deck serenading us from midafternoon to well past bed time. The sunrises streaming into the master bedroom were brilliant. If you like to hike, this location puts you just fifteen minutes from Europe Bay State Park, the Mink River Estuary and Door Bluff County Park, but book an extra day or two if you possibly can. With the extra time you can enjoy both the trails, and the relaxing beauty of Sky Ledge, which, for us, was hard to leave in the morning. As we were booking Sky Ledge, Dan was out of country and we were traveling cross country arranging visits with friends and relatives along with our planned stay in Door County. There were snags, but Dan worked persistently to keep the process moving despite difficulty with emails, tablets and cell phones. He also covered all details needed for our seamless arrival. Thank you Dan and Cindy for a wonderful stay at Sky Ledge!!

Cross Country Ski Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Our cross country ski group was looking for a new destination this year. We prefer to have our lodging close to both groomed trails and wilderness areas so we can do back country skiing. Being close also allows us to come back for a relaxing lunch.We found both at this location. You are only 15 minutes from Newport State Park and the Mink River Estuary. The rental is very spacious and has a great view overlooking the lake and of Washington Island. You definitely have a up-north feel. We utilized the wood fireplace and cooked all of meals at the rental since we have a chef in our group. I would recommend this rental for future trips to the "Tip of the Door".

We are very picky and it turned out this place had a lot to offer! The sound of the beach right out the door and the comfortable accommodations were perfect for us. Charlie's Fish Smokehouse is just around the bend and it was great to be able to bring our dog too. But what made it extra memorable was that we proposed to each other and celebrated our engagement there. There is no home more peaceful and comfortable than this. We will definitely return for great memories and to make new ones.
