About Beth Klein
Hi, my name is Beth and I grew up in the midwest. My family lived in Steven's Point, Wisconsin for several years before moving to Michigan and finally to Texas in 1976. I currently live in Denton, TX but I try to 'escape' to Wisconsin every summer when the heat gets too extreme down here.
Beth Klein purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Beth Klein chose Algoma
I purchased this property for several reasons. First, I love Algoma! What a great wholesome place to spend a summer! It has everything one could ask for in a small town - the lake, the beautiful outdoors, biking and hiking trails, art ('Clay on Steele'), great restaurants and bars, bowling, a good library, shopping (The Ivy Cottage and the very eclectic 'Flying Pig'), and GREAT FRIENDLY FOLKS! I have been taking my kids here every summer since they were babies and we have made so many wonderful memories (searching for beach glass and pretty rocks, swimming at Krohns lake, picnicking at all the many area parks, kayaking, and bicycling the Ahnapee Trail). But I fell in love with this particular building for two reasons. I always wanted to live in an upstairs apartment in a historical building, and I am an artist, so I loved the huge garage that I plan on turning into a studio when I retire in Texas. Since I live 5 states away, I liked the fact that there was no yard to upkeep and that I had downstairs tenants that could help me keep an eye on things when I wasn't there. So far, it has worked wonderfully and I try to get up here every chance I get. This place and this town provide me with a peaceful escape from the hectic pace and lifestyle that comes with living in the Dallas area.
What makes this Apartment unique
I purchased this property from the family of the original owners. They lived in this building for 3 generations and I think that's pretty neat that they have entrusted me with a piece of history that has been in their family since 1891. Therefore, with the exception of WiFi, I have not installed flat-screen TV's with nine million channels in every room. To me, this is a place to focus on yourself and the people and life you love. I've tried to furnish the apartments with beautiful artwork, and comfortable furniture and antiques. It is a place to rejuvenate your senses and get back in touch with nature and simplicity. If you want a modern-day hotel, then I urge you to look elsewhere, but if you want a beautiful comfortable home where you can read, rest, play games, tell stories,and relax then this is the place for you.

Wonderful place to stay
Just outside Door County is the most charming living space provided by Beth! A very Spacious apartment (we stayed in A) with a small view of Lake Michigan! Just a short walk from beach, pier, winery, and grocery store. Beth provides games, cards and puzzles in case of inclement weather. We didn't use the full kitchen, but loved sipping our wine on the roof top deck while looking out on the town and a glimpse of Lake Michigan. We used Beth's place as a home base while exploring Door County, but don't forget to explore Algoma also. A charming town, while we were there in mid-June it was cool, but it didn't stop us from walking on the beach, finding beach glass and stones to paint and add to Beth's coffee table trunk! A truly wonderful time!
It is a huge space! Decorated very nicely. Clean.
The stairs are a bit daunting and the entrance into the building made us wonder what would be on the inside of the apartment. But we were pleasantly surprised... The price was right in line with the property.
Perfect on all fronts!
We had an awesome experience here. Host and caretaker were very helpful and accommodating. Great kayaking nearby. Biked on the ice age trail a few blocks from the apt. Awesome space in the apt, super comfortable.... we'll be back for sure!
Another successful stay!
We intend on making this place a regular vacation stay for us. Our boys had a blast and had ample room to roam. Thanks for sharing your home with us!
Great location and unique space.
Great location- walking to many shops & restaurants. Apartment offers an unique space with lots of room for social time. Check out the local winery for a taste and the pottery place to make your own art. Reservation required. Would like to come back.
Beautiful huge apartment in neat little town.
Wonderful, clean HUGE apartment with great lake views. Really nice quiet artsy town on the lake. Great value and very cool place to stay!
Thanks so much for the review. I always love it when folks enjoy Algoma as much as I do! 😀
These beautifully furnished upper apartments are located directly across from the Von Stiehl Winery on one side and the local bowling alley on the other. Downstairs there is a Pilates/Yoga studio and a wonderful gift shop called 'Hello Dolly"'. A short walk will take you to the Marina or to historic Steele Street where you can wander through great shops and restaurants. The apartments are 1/2 mile from sandy Crescent Beach and Boardwalk. Some of the area attractions include golfing, the Ahnapee Trail, canoeing and kayaking, The Flying Pig, pier fishing, marina, shopping, and snowmobiling an ice fishing in the winter. Lambeau Field is only 40 miles away and Door County is 17 miles away.
