Great views, clean condo

  • 5 of 5

This is the first time we have stayed in Door County, so I wasn't quite sure where to stay. This location worked out because it is in-between Sister's Bay and Ellison Bay, it was an easy drive to different areas. It is also close--within running distance if you are a runner--to a beautiful look-out area. If you like a quiet and relaxing atmosphere, this is your place. It over looks a section of Green Bay so you are able to see the water from the lower deck and the living room windows. Absolutely tranquil. The condo was very clean, and spacious. We enjoyed the tennis court--we didn't see anyone playing on it the entire time we were there--it's a nice tennis court, Duraplay Courts, which we hadn't had the opportunity to play on yet. The kids took advantage of the swimming pool, it was small, there wasn't really anyone using it - yet exceptionally clean and well kept. The condo has a gas grill that was in good condition, a spacious garage, a well stocked kitchen, a great laundry room, and a few classics to read if you have the time. The furniture was in good condition and the beds were comfortable. If you are particular about pillows, you may want to bring your own (I have issues with pillows that have been slept on by others). There was wifi, which I didn't see indicated in the amenities section, that was a nice surprise since I work freelance and have to sometimes work a little bit while on vacation. This is a nice condo that is very well maintained with all the amenities you need.

Owner's Response: We very much enjoy having folks, who stay with us , enjoy their holiday time in Door County. Further, it is "so smart" and important, I think, to make/plan these family outings a reality as "time"/opportunities for these outings dissipates rapidly.

At the end of a Door County day, seek solace in this quiet wooded condo overlooking the most photographed setting in Door County. Be sure to seek out the 'busy'-ness of Fish Creek, Sister Bay, Egg Harbor just a few miles south with their galleries and shops but return to slow down in the less traveled Ellison Bay area. We're next to the 160 acre Ellison Bluff County Park with hiking trails in a peaceful country setting. We're just four miles from the unspoiled Newport State Park and its grand beach. In Ellison Bay you'll find two of the Door's top dining spots, The Wickman House and The Viking; one of the county's best coffee places, BREW; a unique hard cider sampling house, three of the county's best potters, Gills Rock Stoneware, Door County Pottery, and Clay Bay Pottery; the lovely kid friendly Ellison Bay Beach with its special playground. and a few very unique galleries: Silver Poplar Studios, Linden Gallery of Asian Art, Turtle Ridge leather makers.
