                                                            Good excuse to get away for my husband's birthday! The condo was so comfy and clean and had everything that you need. We took full advantage of the indoor pool and hot tub which was just a short walk over there. They also had a really nice continental breakfast that we were welcome to enjoy also!! We had dinner one night at the restaurant which was also just a short walk! Condo was in a great location at the resort! Overall, extremely pleased and would love to stay next year! Brian and the staff were great! Thank you!

                                                            Absolutely gorgeous home

                                                            5 of 5
                                                            This home is absolutely stunning! We travel to Door County multiple times every year, and we cannot believe it took us this long to find this gem. The location is perfect. It is a very short drive from great restaurants and shopping, but at the same time this home gives you a true get-a-way feeling as it is very peaceful and relaxing. The property is full of wildlife, and it was great to enjoy our morning coffee looking out the large windows to see what would fly or walk by. The decor is done very well for a lodge such as this, and was very cozy. The home was spotless and very clean. Michael was wonderful to work with, always answered emails in a timely fashion, and greeted us to show us around the home when we checked in. We had a wonderful stay, and we will definitely be coming back.

                                                            Stunning location and water view

                                                            Viewing this property upon arrival was jaw dropping to say the least. The water view of Green Bay was awesome and hearing the waves crash against the rocky shore was beyond relaxing especially at night with a roaring campfire. I'm currently using a picture I took of the sunset as my new computer wallpaper. lol! The cottage had plenty of room for the 6 adults /1 Child that stayed for the weekend. My 8 yr old nephew loved the Playstation 3 downstairs ! The screened in upper level deck was great too and you can even hear the waves while sitting in it. We all loved how much room we had to move around without being cramped at all. The kitchen was perfect as we cooked a huge batch of Jumbalyia one of the nights. It had all the utensils needed to prepare a perfect meal. Tim also provided firewood which we used in the firepit down by the waters edge for nice and warm roaring campfire. The location was perfect too since its a quick drive either to Sturgeon Bay or the main street shops in Egg Harbor. The restaurant called "The Cabin" was just a few mins down the road and was very good. Id definitely recommend that place to anyone staying close by it. We will definitely be coming back sometime in the future and exploring more of Door County from this perfect launching spot. Wish we could have stayed 2 weeks or longer!!!!! Thank you Tim for such a awesome place! Looking forward to next time!!!!!!
