Why Kris Zeile chose Door County

Our family has been vacationing/living in Door County for over 55 years

What makes this house unique

There is nothing like the beauty and excitement of being directly on Lake Michigan with it's ever changing color, mood and spectacular displays when it storms, freighters along the horizon and sunrises beyond compare. While the pennisula offers great dining, galleries, shops, nature and entertainment, we enjoy our beach - bonfires, cookouts, walks, bird watching, enjoying nature and visiting with friends.

March 2017 Visit

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed over Spring Break for 4 nights in March, and had a wonderful relaxing time. Kris, the owner, was very responsive with all questions and concerns. Upon arrival the home was clean and tidy, and we loved being so close to the water we could hear the waves breaking on the windier days. View out the back windows was beautiful, and the sunrise with the ducks and gulls each morning will be a fond memory.

We hope to be back someday!

Kris Zelle property

This is a great house with plenty of space and a spectacular view of the lake. We were 4 adults and there for a week and commented on the house every day. it's in a great location for visiting the remainder of Door County and is close to a grocery and liquor store. The house has a great wood burning fireplace with wood furnished and a fire pit on the lakeshore. Everything was there for a great stay.

Perfect Spot for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our time at this cottage! Kris, the owner, made sure everything you could possibly need was readily available and the cottage was perfectly situated on the lake. We couldn't believe how close we were to the waves and falling asleep to the sound of the water was so peaceful. The cottage is cozy and well maintained. Our family enjoyed daily walks on the beach in both directions and swims in the shallow water. Great for little kids! Thank you for sharing your home and my kids are already asking when we can return and if we could move to Door County. Don't miss out on the perfect spot with actual beach property! .

Do not hesitate to rent this charming house that sits nearly on Lake Michigan. It is cozy and beautifully appointed and has everything one could possibly need including a wonderful fireplace which we used nearly every day. This property has easy access to the east side of the Door but it is lovely to come back to the "quiet side." The owner was wonderful to work with and extremely responsive to any inquiries.

Wonderful, peaceful & beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Door County, we had such a great holiday will be booking again next year!

The views from the house are beautiful, as our 3 young boys are early risers we had the opportunity to see the breathtaking sunrise most mornings!

The house had everything we needed, was clean & comfortable for a family of 5.

We made great use of the beach toys & hired a paddle board from Bailey's Harbour.

As recommended by the owner we took a trip to the Farm - what a great day! (I'd pack a lunch though)

Being from England & not having them we took advantage of the drive in - we loved it!! I think the adults had as much if not more fun than the kids!

The only thing I would say is the house is on the main road which could get busy at times. It made me nervous enough to not allow the children in the garden without supervision. However we couldn't hear the road noise from inside the house or the beach -the road wouldn't be a problem for less nervous mums or older children.

We wouldn't hesitate to book this property again!
