About The Owner

My father designed this home to be a fabulous retreat from city life. Crack any window open and the lake is in the room. Windows abound so the outside is inside. When I come to Door County the stress of day to day life just slips away and the wildlife, lake and new areas to discover bring many moments of enjoyment.

The Owner purchased this house in 2001

Why The Owner chose Door County

The beauty of this property is that it is on the lakeside, you have peaceful, gorgeous views, the lake in all it's splendor; a full sky of stars; daytime privacy, hiking trails unending, and just a short drive away, when you wish to shop, visit art galleries, eat out, etc. you are close by.

I have at our home a long, diverse list of activities for families, couples, nature lovers, shoppers, gallery lovers, boaters, explorers, as well as recommended restaurants, a calendar of events and directions to sites, parks and towns near by, and essential services you may need.

What makes this house unique

We love the privacy...we have a county park to the south of us, so no one can build or daily encroach on our enjoyment. We have two patios/porches. One is just above the lake with a fire pit and it's wonderful for the evening with friends or early morning tea all on your own. The two person master suite shower and outdoor shower are both a delight. The lights were custom made for the property and add a wonderful texture to the space. The two story living and dining room, along with the Door County stone fireplace are the favored gathering spots throughout the day, with the many sliding glass doors, you feel like you are outside. The Tempur-Pedic king size bed make slumber a dream.

Perfect week with the family!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this property with our young kids and the Grandparents. Could not recommend it more. The architecture and fine detail of the house was really impressive. It was very clean and well stocked when we arrived. Every room had large windows or doors that seemed to put you right on top of the lake. The kids loved the hiking trail right in to whitefish dunes state park that ends at the yard. We were able to walk the trail to Cave point county park to do the cliff jumping. The beach where people stack rocks is right along the way and that was a lot of fun. We even found a small sandy beach on the way to Cave point that we went to a couple times. We brought our kayaks and went out on the water almost every day. The path down to the water from the yard is a little rough but that was part of the adventure. The town of Jacksonport has a really nice public sandy beach that we visited and whitefish dunes is a five minute drive . We tried hiking to the whitefish beaches from the house. The trail goes all the way there but it was too much for the kids. My six year old was fine but the younger ones were not impressed. We made it but took the car back. All in all if you love being on the water and getting out into nature this gives you a great home base to do that. I highly recommend it and hope to visit again someday.

Another wonderful summer week

  • 5 of 5

This was our 6th summer spending a week in this lovely house. Doesn't that say it all? Beautiful house and yard, stunning view, great location, thoughtful and helpful owners. Three generations of our family in harmony for card games in the living room, cocktails on the deck, dinners from the grill, and s'mores at the fire pit in the evening.

The entire property was lovely and comfortable and very private.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The home is spacious but also very homey. We loved sitting on the deck and relaxing with coffee each morning just watching and listening to the waves from the lake roll in and the weather was just perfect! The house had all the creature comforts we could ever need. Janet was an absolute dream to work with! We wished we could have stayed longer. We do plan on coming back!

The house was absolutely perfect. Everything you could imagine is provided.

  • 5 of 5

The home made for an amazing vacation. Janet was great to work with and very responsive all questions. The location was perfect for a relaxing Door County getaway, close enough to do everything but yet quiet and secluded. We have vacationed in Door County many times and this was by far the most relaxing location. Absolutely perfect.

Perfect Door County Location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a spectacular place. It is the last home on the lake before Cave Point State Park, so there is a trail you follow to the park right from the yard. You can also access a secluded rocky beach from the yard, which the kids loved. The house is clean, comfortable, well appointed, and has a beautiful view of the lake from just about every room. Gorgeous light streams onto the kitchen table in the morning. There are lots of sleeping options and several bathrooms. The location feels secluded, but it's just a short drive or bike ride into various towns with restaurants, groceries, and shops. The owner was super helpful, friendly, and communicative. We definitely want to come back!

Property has everything you could want, especially location. What it doesn't have is a tv so families with kids or teens should take note.

Owner's Response: Glad you loved it! Clarification: it does have a TV but not cable, so kids watch DVDs or stream via laptop through the TV. Some prefer to unplug but we get that's not for everyone. We have wifi to keep you connected.
