About Paul Larsen

I grew up in Baileys Harbor known as the quiet side of the Door County Peninsula. Graduated High School 1979 in Fish Creek. I still live in Baileys Harbor on the west side of Kangaroo Lake with my wife and 4 children. I became an electronics technician and own/operate Larsen TV Sales and Service since 1981. My wife has been in the Banking Business and Retail Management for over 20 years.

Paul Larsen purchased this house in 2005

Why Paul Larsen chose Door County

I was on a TV Service Call at a beautiful log home and told the customer how much I loved his log home and chinking. He brought me out to his barn where there was a complete unassembled 1861 school house stacked in logs on his floor. I bought it and moved it into the Village of Egg Harbor where I already owned a beautiful wooded piece of property.

What makes this house unique

We sand blasted all the debris off the logs and assembled this historic 1861 log home because I wanted to restore this part of history. The log portion of this home has become the dining room and living room and gives off so much charm and comfort. The rest of this over 2000 square foot home is stick built that we nicely blended in with the cabin.

Great Memorial Day Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was everything we could have asked for and more. We arrived to a clean cabin with a welcome note on the door and nice music playing throughout the house. The speaker system throughout the cabin was a highlight, a great addition, and definitely a highlight. The bedrooms had plenty of room and the kitchen was great. We used the grill a lot and the deck had a nice, but private view. It was only a 5 minute walk to great restaurants and bars such as Shipwrecked and Mojo's, and the sunset out in the harbor. Great for a guys weekend away or a family vacation alike. Thanks Paul for a great stay!

Second Visit -- Another Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

The location is fantastic -- especially love that we are able to walk to the market for things we might need and can easily cook for ourselves. We came as a group of three couples and the space was exactly what we needed.

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous Property. Loved the hot tub and the fireplace. Would be more than happy to come back again. Hopefully the weather will be a little bit more forgiving! Still had a great time checking out the peninsula and local towns.

Quiet, Peaceful, Incredible

  • 5 of 5

Let me fist start off this review by saying Paul and Mert are amazing people to rent from, Paul responded quickly to my inquiry, set everything up, directions were spot on and woke up to a note taped to the door wishing me a Happy Birthday, that’s how you run a successful business.

We arrived at the property at 9pm at night, as we walked into the amazing house; Paul had the multi zone sound system playing for us, how awesome is that. As we walked around the house everything was as promised, we were not disappointed, and we were incredibly pleased. The Kohler plumbing fixtures, the warm inviting fireplace to the relaxing master bed, those pillows are GREAT, and we are buying a set for us at home, and would you believe the house has a central vac system.

The day of departure was a sad one, we did not want to leave, IF you are hesitant, considering a motel, hotel, resort, give Paul an opportunity to earn your business, and you will NOT be disappointed.

Thank you again Paul and Mert for making my birthday such a memorable one, we WILL be back.

Larsen Log Cabin - awesome getaway

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a really great trip to the Larsen Log Cabin in Egg Harbor Wisconsin. We sought a place to decompress and to have a quiet romantic weekend and this place perfectly suited the bill. Many cabins are drab, dingy, or just plain plain. Not this place. Paul and Mert acquired and old schoolhouse and brilliantly integrated the wood and joinery from that schoolhouse in to a home with all the modern conveniences and then some. As an architect I can tell you he really did a great job - safe and comfort of a modern home with the feeling of a cabin or lodge. Not tacky, just simple and honest. Available are a hot tub, excellent kitchen, outdoor porch, nice bedrooms and baths, fire pit .... And did I mention the hot tub? It's private and perfect.

Just a few blocks away from the town center we found the property quiet and the view in to the forest private and calming. And yet just a quick ride to restaurants, beaches, forest preserves,shopping, cafes, etc.

Lovely place for family trips, girls weekends, romantic couples, etc. highly recommend.

Great place for an extended getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Larsen Log Cabin was everything we could have asked for a guys getaway. The owner, Paul, was incredibly responsive to our needs. Sleeping arrangement were incredibly comfortable, the kitchen was well-supplied with pots and pans and a crockpot, the hot tub was great (it was big - but there WERE 11 of us... not everyone could fit in at once. I'd say max 6 at a time.), the internet worked fine. I could give a room-by-room review but I'll spare the details - it was our home away from home. The grocery store was across the street, dining a few minutes away. My group of 11 definitely plan on being back. Hopefully next time there will be more of us and the basement addition will be done!

The only other comment I'd put here is more of a comment on the use of VRBO, not directed at the Larsen Log Cabin at all: we had to mail a check. To an individual whom I've never met before. I actually run three rentals myself on AirBNB and AirBNB handles all payments, deposits, insurance, etc securely, electronically. VRBO does not, so be prepared to mail the actual owner of the property a paper check. It made me very nervous because I think the last time I actually wrote a check was 2004 - everything else goes via secure electronic payment or bank-to-bank transfers... HOWEVER - now that I've met the owner my fears have been allayed and I trust him with our (not insignificant) prepayments/deposits.

Executive Summary: We were very grateful to the Larsen's hospitality, enjoyed our stay, and hope to be back again. Five stars!
