We were both born and raised in Door County. With the exception of three years living in Milwaukee, we have always resided in Door County.

DONNA JORNS purchased this House in 2004

Why DONNA JORNS chose Sturgeon Bay

The house was built in 1974 by Harvey and Margaret Jorns,(Parents of the Current Owners) Harvey and Donna Jorns. The Property has always been enjoyed by all Siblings and Their Children. In 2004 Harvey and Donna purchased it from the Family Estate. We have always loved the Location, Waterviews, and Shore Frontage. We Feel Very Blessed and are Grateful to Share the 'Retreat' With Others.

What makes this House unique

We Use the House As Often As Possible. During the Christmas Holidays, Our Entire Family Arrives Home. We Love the Open Concept of the House and Are Able to Have a Formal Sit-Down Christmas Dinner for 21-24 people. We Enjoy the Water Views from the Living Room, Dining Room, Kitchen, Great Room and Master Bedroom. During the Winter There is Always Something (Animals) or Someone (Ice Fishermen, Snowmobilers etc) on the Bay. And in the Summer All Water Activities are Viewed by Everyone.

                                                                      Martha S.Colgate, Wisconsin

                                                                      As I sit here quietly while I wait for my girlfriends to wake up so we can pack to go home, I can take a moment to reflect on the weekend I shared with seven cherished friends at Donna and Harvey's home. It can be daunting organizing a getaway for so many women with different personalities but I have been pleased to hear over and over again how nice this home is and how thoughtful our owners have been along with "This house has everything we need" and "The layout is perfect for us". Donna has been a joy to work with and made it so easy for me to ensure a fabulous time for all of these women with very busy lives looking for a peaceful retreat. We found it here at Jorn's Harbor Retreat. Thank you so much Donna and Harvey. We ALL greatly appreciate it.

The gals were SO FRIENDLY AND HAD DELIGHTFUL PERSONALITIES😀� The house was left SO CLEAN AND NEAT👏� Couldn't believe that guests had been here! Great people, thanking all for choosing us for your vacation🌷�

                                                                      Home away from home

                                                                      Harvey and Donna have made their retreat as comfortable as your favorite shoes. This rental is a home. We looked at 10 rentals before deciding this was our place. It has become our family's tradition to stay here every year. We love Harvey and Donna and this home.!

                                                                      Owner's Response:

CLEAN, CLEAN, and so ORGANIZED👍� LOVELY, KIND HEARTED COUPLE❤️ We kid that we really don"t need a cleaning gal after them. Lois washes the bed linen and towels before leaving. And best of all they let us know if anything needs repairing. We have been SO BLESSED TO HAVE MET DALE AND LOIS AND NOW CALL THEM FAMILY😀�

                                                                      Very nice, quiet retreat, beautiful bay view and lakefront area.

                                                                      Timothy K.

                                                                      We had a really nice time at the property. The home is in nice condition, very clean, and it has a beautiful view of the bay. The private lakefront area with fire pit, pier and small, swimmable sandy beach area next the pier is really a unique amenity. Crossing the road to access the lakefront area is not an issue, traffic is minimal and visibility good. Of course you want to be careful with children crossing, but it was not a problem. The property is well-kept, everything in working order. Many extras are provided by the owners that make it very welcoming and easy. Firewood and matches for the fire pit, lawn chairs to sit by the fire, a paddle boat with life vests, tools for roasting marshmallows, a grill with charcoal, coffee for the coffee maker, a full kitchen stocked with all plates, pots, pans and utensils, but also things like salt and pepper, cooking spray, seasonings, etc. Full laundry facilities with detergent provided are wonderful to have on vacation. The owners clearly are very thoughtful and considerate hosts, and have readily anticipated what makes a visit easier and more comfortable. There is a large garage that can be used for parking, the owner provides a remote. The kids (and we adults) really enjoyed the fires by the shore, making s'mores, fishing off the private pier, etc.

                                                                      The location is quiet and peaceful, away from the hustle and bustle of the touristy areas with restaurants, public beaches, attractions, etc. So, if you want to be in the middle of the action, this is a bit off the beaten path. However, if you want peace and quiet, especially in the evenings, this is perfect. Even though it was a bit of drive to get to places we wanted to visit (30-40 minutes to Fish Creek or Sister Bay, about an hour to the northern tip of the peninsula), we enjoyed the drives and seeing more of the peninsula, and also enjoyed having a much quieter place to return to after the action, for a very quiet fire by the water with just us.

                                                                      The Door Peninsula was a great location for a family getaway, and this was a great home base from which to explore.

                                                                      We would gladly visit this property again if our travels take us back to the area.

                                                                      Thank you!

                                                                      Very nice place

                                                                      We really liked the house, it was clean and very cute. The beach area itself was pretty decent, but unfortunately the water in the bay was really dirty which made it impossible to swim in. Nothing the owners could do about. Some advice for those who want to spend time in the water- go to Whitefish Dunes state park (15 min from the house). We spent most of our time there the beach is huge and the water was super nice and clean. Very nice stay otherwise! Thank you Donna and Harvey!

                                                                      What a wonderful home. It was cozy and clean. The Jorns are wonderful people!

                                                                      Chris C.Springfield, Missouri

                                                                      The home is very nice and the Jorns were so thoughtful to leave us a welcome basket. The kids loved swimming in the bay and fishing off the dock. The home is conveniently located close to Sturgeon Bay and all the towns to the north like Egg Harbor. We had a wonderful time and would love to stay there again.
