Great anniversary weekend

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Cedar Shores cottage. A very clean and cozy place. Enjoyed the beautiful view of Lake Michigan! How nice to have the beach right out your back door. We enjoyed our morning and evening walks and surprised at how far you could walk the beach. Can't wait for our next trip there.

The house had everything we needed, very clean! But we would have liked air conditioning.

  • 5 of 5

They kept the house and beach very clean! We loved it! We would love to go back. It was a very humid week so air would have been nice at night. But because it was warm the lake was perfect! Highly recommend this house!!

Perfect "feels like home" cottage nestled next to the lake

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Jacksonport cottage in October. The cottage was very clean, quite comfortable, and quiet! The gorgeous view of Lake Michigan from the family room picture window was priceless! Venturing outdoors with a cup of coffee and ample adirondack seating to choose from, watching the sunrise from the lake's horizon was the perfect way to start the day. Walking along the shore greeting a few walkers and friendly dogs while enjoying the fresh air and lapping sounds of the lake, was just another great way to begin the day.

Only a 15-minute drive to Sister Bay, where we were lucky to witness a breathtaking subdued rainbow streaked sunset and also visited the goats on the roof of Al Johnson's. We took a detour off the regular route to Ephraim and found a roadside wagon loaded with a variety of pumpkins and gourds and the kids were thrilled. All-you-can eat soup lunch at the Summer Kitchen was delicious and then we headed to Red Putter for mini-golf, which was very reasonable for the entire family and of course fun! Also, enjoyed an afternoon of leisurely driving through Door County while stopping for the occasional outdoor markets and to take pictures of the beautiful fall foliage.

The cottage felt like home, beds were comfy, bathroom updated and clean, plenty of games to play with family in the evening, and a variety of birds to view out back with the occasional crafty squirrels stealing seeds. We would love to visit the cottage again in the future!

Escape the summer heat

  • 4 of 5

Me and my family; my wife, 11 year-old daughter and 7 month year-old daughter, all traveled to Wisconsin from Southern Illinois to be on the beach on the waters of Lake Michigan for a week during the middle of July. It was 95 at home with a heat index of 105 and the high for the entire week in Jacksonport was 73. Loved it!

This cottage was great for our needs. It was right on the beach (30 yards) with a beautiful view of the water from the kitchen and living area. Made it easy to let our daughter play on the beach without constant supervision. Loved burning fires almost every night. The wood and rock pit (also on the beach) were included in our stay. Needed it, since a couple nights the low was July!

Close to everything. Our longest drive was 30 minutes. We were 15 from Egg Harbor, 30 from Sturgeon Bay, 10 from Bailey's Harbor, etc.

The highlights of our stay were: The Renard's Cheese factory and tour, our fishing charter with Hooked-Up Charters (we caught TONS of fish and left Wisconsin with over 100 lbs in Salmon fillets), and the Dairy View Country store (also 15 min. away).

The price is reasonable, the beach is great (albeit fairly cold water even in July. Don't worry, the west side of the peninsula, towards Green Bay, was 10 or so degrees warmer on average and only 15 min. away at Egg Harbor), the fires were awesome, and the inside was nice. Looked at the Michigan side of the lake, but prices were higher and sights were further away. Also, we really wanted to do the fishing charter and couldn't be happier with that choice!

great Escape

  • 5 of 5

The cabin and the location were everything we were expecting. The location was perfect for us as it was very close to a few awesome parks and a lighthouse. It was also away from the traffic and people in fish creek and egg harbor but yet close enough to easily get there. We had awesome sunrises every morning! We would definitely come back here again. Door County is a beautiful area with so much to see and do!

Our only complaint was that the mosquitos were bad by the lake and that we were very disappointed in the golf course that we played at. Other than that our trip was perfect.

IMPORTANT! When you have selected your vacation dates from the Cedar Shores calendar---- if at all possible, consider paying Beach Front Partners LLC- by personal/company check verses using your credit card--- because if you make your ONLINE Reservation/Payment commitment with either VRBO or Home Away using a credit card---you will be charged a 8%-10% an additional VRBO Administration Fee (effective Feb., 2016). This new fee was just suddenly announced by VRBO and as long term VRBO users---we feel it is totally unjustified.

ALTERNATIVELY, we can confirm your reservation via phone or Email, just as we have very successfully done since 2008, we then forward a Rental Agreement for your signature---which you then return to us (Cedar Shores LLC) along with your 50% Deposit Check (rental fee, cleaning fee, and applicable taxes). The remaining 50% is due 14 days prior to your reservation arrival date. If you do prefer to use a credit card--just be aware of the additional VRBO SERVICE FEES that will be added to your online 'Quotation and Request For Payment' from VRBO/Home Away. Any questions---just call (847-381-1521) or Email us --- We truly appreciate your business and trust this information is helpful. Regards, Jim and Linda Schaap --Beach Front Partners, LLC
