Recently remodeled fully equipped cottage within short walking distance to restaurants, shops and grocery store. Located on waterfront property with spectacular views and sunsets from water's edge. Two twin beds. Kitchen with microwave. Full bath with shower only. DirecTV.
Our 42nd wedding anniversary went off without much hoopla which is what we intended. The little cottage in Ellison Bay was the perfect place for our retreat. My husband likes to cook, and I like to paint, so we had the best of both worlds. It was quiet, comfortable, clean, and a perfect location. We were able to drive to the busy, touristy hot spots and rub elbows with the crowds for a little bit, but when we had our fill - returning back to the cottage by the bay was just what we needed to rejuvenate us on all levels. We will definitely return to this VRBO and highly recommend it.
The cottage is exactly as described and reviewed. It is clean and cozy and the bathroom especially is modernized with soft plump towels. John and his wife have decorated it with an eye for comfort and efficiency. It is small but makes great use of its space. And it has a beautiful view of the bay. The local county parks have great hiking trails and the trail along the shore to the Clearing was an easy walk.
Hard to find a place within Door County that provides peace and quiet, serenity and relaxation. Well, we found it. This humble yet comfortable cottage is just the place to stay to escape the hustle and bustle of work--it's just you, your thoughts, the lake and nature. John and Carol have provided an exceptional retreat and were very engaging, informative and accommodating. Two words.........Good People!
I had never been to Door County and really had no idea where to stay when I started looking. Several properties popped up, but it was the charming atmosphere the photos seemed to portray that made me choose this one! I was not disappointed. When I arrived, it was even better than pictured!
It was wonderful to have a full kitchen--that was very helpful. The bed was comfortable and I was able to sleep with the windows open. The addition of a large ceiling fan was helpful.
The Finns have set up a nice little lake-side sitting area where you can have your coffee--it's just perfect.
John and Carol were so kind and accommodating. Very helpful and nice to talk with!
I stayed here four nights, and the location was perfect. I was able to drive all around the peninsula easily and even swam in the lake. I must also put in a plug for the Fireside Grill/Restaurant there in Ellison Bay. It was fantastic. A grocery store was right around the corner.
I enjoyed myself so much that I've already started looking for dates in the future at this same property.
I would highly recommend this property. So restful and relaxing, charming and comfortable.
It was perfect -- in the woods & a few steps to the water, which was visible from the cabin. Just as the photos had shown, it was a quaint, quiet, rustic cabin with well-appointed touches to give the cabin a very cozy & comfortable appeal. The bed was a welcome place after a long day of exploring Door County. Sunsets were awesome and by visiting in October (10/09 thru 10/14) we were treated to the glorious autumn colors. Had the pleasure to meet Carol & John, who were very gracious. I have already recommended this little treasure to a few of my friends, and I intend to pay this Ellison Bay, WI cabin a visit again when heading to Door County.
Cottage was exactly as shown. Well kept, clean & nice extras, like; bathroom heater, extra blankets, satellite tv & cushion chairs with umbrella down by the bay. Great get-a-way spot. Hated to leave.
