About Amy Ziemer

We've been coming to Door County all of our lives and have come to realize that the lake side offers something special. The house is right on the shore and offers great views from the patio and almost every room in the house. You can use the house as your home base to explore the rest of Door County or spend the entire time just relaxing on the property. Either way, it's a great get away!.

Stunning house along with stunning view!

  • 5 of 5

We used the house for a family get together and the house was perfect for all three families and grandchildren. Plenty of room for everyone to gather and still have some privacy if they wanted. Everyone was very impressed! We loved the nightly gathering on the patio overlooking the lake. Would definitely recommend and will rent again if we are ever in Door County again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words! We know that a review from a guest is worth more than anything we could write about the home. We love Lake House and the quiet street, (referred to as "the Drive" by locals). Coming from a very large family, I appreciate exactly what you described, plenty of room to gather and enough space to get away. Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Cheers, Amy

Very nice house.

  • 4 of 5

The house is very nice and situated right on a beautiful part of Lake Michigan. It is perfect for large groups with a large kitchen and large bedrooms. Plenty of dishes, nice bedding, some games, 2 kayaks, etc. When we arrived the air wasn't working so the house was very warm(85+). They did get someone out to fix it, but it took a while to cool down the house. The larger suite on the first floor didn't have its own ac so was warm the whole time, and we had to purchase fans to sleep in it. The beach cove was lovely and perfect for the kids to play. However, the neighbors told us on our last day that it wasn't ours to use so the owner and neighbor need to work this out amongst each other so it is not a problem for renters. Overall a great trip!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review...we appreciate your feedback. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. Yes, although the a/c went out, we were grateful to our HVAC contractor who came out (as soon as we received the message) at 9PM to get things working quickly. After a conversation with the neighbor, we do have a thumbs up for launching kayaks in the cove. We will be more clear with future renters so they understand the limitations of this area. We also feel fortunate being on Glidden Drive. Although we have a rocky shoreline, there are several access paths close to our property, which property owners as well as their guests/renters can use to access sandy beach areas of Lake MI. We will definitely be pointing out these paths for our future guests. Thank you for the great care to took of the home. Sincerely, Amy 2017 UPDATE: Just a quick follow up. Our guest's feedback is appreciated, the good and the not so great. Based on this review from 2016, we installed a second air conditioning unit in the home this past Spring. We expect to have happy campers going forward!! Cheers - Amy

Beautiful rental, with a very spacious house! It exceeded our expectations on every level.

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful three days at this lake house. The setting is incredible - we ate dinners on the lovely patio, built fires each night in the pit, and listened to the waves lapping on the rocks while stargazing. We also made use of the two kayaks to explore up and down the shoreline. All in all, a fantastic getaway!

Very satisfied.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house. Very spacious, well equipped, everything worked, interesting architecture. The bedrooms are huge. The lodge suite offers room for more people if you bring an air mattress. Great location on the water to sit and listen to the surf. If you must have beach access this would be the wrong choice. Wonderful waterfont but its all rocks so no swimming when the waves are rolling in. Highly recommend.

Beautiful, spacious home with incredible views.

  • 5 of 5

The house is great. It's very spacious and well-appointed. The views are incredible. The house is literally right on the water, and you can hear the waves crashing against the rocks, which our group loved. We had 9 people in our group at one point, including a small baby, and it was very nice that we could always find a quiet place to go to have a bit of space. We used the big indoor fireplace every night, and also used the outdoor firepit a few times, which was fun - and there was a full supply of wood provided, which we appreciated. We also took out the sea kayaks, which was a blast. Donny's Glidden Lodge is right down the street, and they have very good food and are also right on the water. Only negative was that they didn't have a gas grill - only charcoal - which can be a bit inconvenient when you want to quickly throw something on the grill. Overall, the vacation was wonderful and we loved the house - would definitely recommend.
