About the Owner
(7 traveler reviews)
The house was great! Amazing views from every room in the house. Clean and Nicely decorated. Jane was informative and helpful from the very first time I contacted her on. Thank you for everything Jane! We appreciated you opening our home and plan on coming back every year!
This was our third time visiting this wonderful beach house across the street from Lake Michigan. The view is spectacular and every room in the house has large windows overlooking the lake. The house is warm and inviting and decorated very nicely in a seaside motif. We love coming to "our spot" in Algoma. The rooms are spacious and bright with a cozy, homey feeling. Thank you so much Jane for sharing your home with us!
Glad to Be Back
My friend and I stayed at this beautiful home in Algoma in September. This was our second time visiting the Beach House. It's a wonderful home with beautiful views of the lake. The home is very spacious and clean and decorated in a seaside motif that is very nicely done and with all the comforts of home. There are no other houses in close proximity, which gave us a total sense of privacy. Shopping and restaurants are minutes away. A wonderful location to visit Door County and not far from Green Bay in the other direction. We are very much looking forward to returning to this welcoming home! Thank you so much Jane for sharing your home!!
Great Value and Beautiful View
The house was beautiful and had a wonderful view of the lake. The screen porch is on the 2nd floor and has a hammock and it gets a nice breeze from the lake that cools down the whole house for great sleeping. It was a little further south than I originally thought but within a couple hours drive of the tip of the pennisula and since we were on a bike trip it allowed for some good day rides. There is also a great winery and some good shopping in and around Algoma. We were very pleased with our stay and Jane was responsive and informative throughout.
Vacation rental gone bad
We checked into the home in the evening and it was 92 degrees inside, very hot. We contacted the owner and she said that there was no air in the home and that it is unusually hot this time of year. My husband called back to see if she would work with us to accommodate this problem and asked if she would be willing to refund $20 a night so we can get additional fans for the home, she said no. He even went down to $10 refund a night and she still said no, that she had other people she could have rented it to.
We were forced to stay overnight and throughout the rest of the evening when we open the windows from the porch and the bedrooms downstairs there were several, I mean several spiders and bugs coming into the home. We had to by bug spray and was killing spiders coming into the home with our shoes. We had to close the windows to the porch and bedrooms because I didn't want my two year old to be bit by spiders.
The next morning we opened the door to the porch and it was so dirty, there was rotting wood and several rusty nails and staples in a few areas that it was unsafe for my child to play on it. We could not even keep the side door open upstairs because it was rusted and broken that I was afraid that my child could get hurt or get out the door. We also was going to take our child outside to play in the yard but the grass was not mowed and it came it my child's knees, which I felt was not good for my child to play in.
I tried to contact the owner and explain all the problems and that it was unsafe for my child and that we would like to work out a deal so that we may find another place. She was at work and refused to help in refunding any monies and said if she knew I was so picky that she would have not rented to us. I tried several times to get her on the phone but there was no luck, only texts. The owner verbally attack me by saying that I had issues and needed to seek counseling. Which is very unprofessional, I even texted her several photos of all the nails, bugs, broken door, etc.. and she told me to remove the rusty nails and throw them away myself and that bugs are normal on the lake. We had to rent another place paying a little more but it was so worth it.
I then tried to contact The owner regarding our deposit when we returned home and tried one last time to see if she would work with us on settling this before I had to take legal action and she came up with excuses, so now I have only one choice.
My friend and I just recently returned from a 3 day stay at the Beach House in Algoma. To say it was relaxing would be an understatement.
The house itself is very spacious, lovingly and delightfully decorated in a seaside style. Every room in the house has windows facing a wonderful view of Lake Michigan.
The owner,Jane, was very helpful and the renting process went smoothly.
I would definitely recommend this property to anyone wanting privacy, relaxation and a good area for shopping and sightseeing.
We were very sad to leave and hoping we can return when our schedules allow.
Thank you Jane ! ! ! !
