This property is owned by Rick & Cathy Ripley and Roger & Jeni Ripley from Pulaski, WI. It is the plan of both of us to one day retire in the Fish Creek area. A 2nd home is located next door and was completed in June 2014. This home is a 3 bedroom with 2.5 baths and a true master suite. It also has a bonus room with additional beds.

RICK RIPLEY purchased this house in 2011

Why RICK RIPLEY chose Door County

Fish Creek is the hub of Door County. We wanted to make this a investment both now and into the future.

What makes this house unique

We especially enjoy biking and walking in Peninsula State Park. A great walking trail is right out the back door and into the park.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hard to believe we found such a wonderful place to stay. We all felt so at home and had a great time together as a family. The weather this past week was awesome. It made for great golfing with plenty of shopping. The evenings were beautiful which lead to campfires every night. Our little one enjoyed his many walks through the woods to the BP gas station and even into Peninsula State Park!

Great House + Great Location = Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a birthday and New Year's weekend combo. I want to start off with saying how great of a host Rick is. He was so helpful leading up to and during our stay. He recommended things to do and places to eat. One restaurant he recommended was the English Inn, we tried their fish fry and it was fabulous! I hadn't been to Door County since I was toddler, so it was wonderful to get recommendations from someone that knows the area well. On Friday night and early Saturday morning it snowed, but Rick was up shoveling before we were even awake!

The house is located on a lot with 2 other houses, however we felt very secluded. The backyard, especially after the snow, was beautiful. The house was also very accommodating for our group of 8. The house was very clean and I appreciated that the mattresses had zip-covers on them. In the past I've rented other houses and I can honestly say, none were as well stocked and equipped as this one. I've been to houses that didn't supply toilet paper, garbage bags, hand or dish soap, let alone have a fully stocked kitchen for cooking. This place had it all! It was really a breath of fresh air.

The other thing I loved about this house was how close it was to everything. It's within walking distance to Peninsula State Park, super close to the 'downtown' Fish Creek area, which was great for checking out local shops, not to mention all the wineries that are within a 10 min drive.

Thank you again to Rick and his wife for being such great hosts and sharing such a special place. We definitely plan on returning!

Clean, well appointed and plenty of room!

  • 5 of 5

I came with four other ladies for a girls weekend! We all had ample room! Everything was very clean and tidy. We loved the details, such as... throw blankets on the couches, extra blankets and pillows and sheets in the closets, well stocked kitchen, etc...! It was wonderful to also have bicycles available to us, folding chairs. Truly a lovely home away from our own homes. I would certainly recommend this home to others. It feels very quiet and secluded and yet a couple of turns and you are in some of the best shopping in DC! I highly recommend staying Fish Creek for your next stay, and certainly, at this wonderful home!

Beautiful home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of eight adults. 4 bedrooms with the two bathrooms was perfect. The home was very well stocked with everything we needed even nice extras like bikes and coolers and extra lawn chairs in the garage. The yard was beautiful with the fire pit and hammock. We had a great time!! Thank you

Welcoming & Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My three friends and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at the end of August. It was our first time to rent a house after staying at hotels, a cottage and a B&B in Door County. The lovely, well cared-for place was just as everyone else described it and more - so welcoming and comfortable, a home away from home. It was as great for a reunion of friends as it would be for families. The kitchen is well equipped and easy for more than one person to work in at a time. The surroundings are so peaceful yet close to the rest of Fish Creek and all of Door County. Thanks to Rick and Cathy.

Wonderful home for a great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year renting this home and have come away impressed both times. It is clean, convenient and is well-appointed. The owners are friendly and easy to work with. This is the perfect spot for our family getaway in Door County. The location is close to town, yet in a quiet peaceful setting.
