Beautiful well refurbished farmhouse with Door County history

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful well refurbished part log farmhouse the pictures don't do this gem justice. We enjoyed our late October stay in door county and this house made our trip to Door County a weekend to remember. We loved reading about the history of this house and the family that lived there The home had everything we needed along with a comfortable bed and relaxing hot tub in the downstairs bedroom. The only con was the water had a strong odor so I would suggest bringing bottled water with you. We hope we can visit again.

Just as pictured, not too far off the main road through Ellison Bay

  • 4 of 5

Our stay for our girls weekend was quite nice, Andrea was very nice to speak with on the phone. The only trouble we had was that the hot water was not on and after two messages, we still had not heard back from the owners, after searching the house we found the breaker panel and the water heater tanks were both off. This did solve the problem, but I was disappointed that we were never contacted back. The water is very sulfury smelling, but the home was clean and beds were comfortable. Great price for a place to call home for the weekend.

This was so comfy - cozy - homey. We loved it and we loved that you provided us the history of the original owners. We toasted Ida/Alec for providing us the original homestead, thinking about raising 7 children and all the struggles they endured. Thanks so much. gb

Lovely spot for a getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the better part of a week here, and loved the comfort, cleanliness, and ease of getting around on bike and car to our favorite spots in Door County. Will definitely stay again!

Lovely, old farmhouse off the beaten track

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed five nights in this lovely old farmhouse away from the hustle and bustle of a Door County summer. We biked, read, and enjoyed the solitude in this comfy home. Everything we needed was provided, and the hosts were very accommodating. if you're looking for a private and peaceful place from which to explore Door County, this is the place to stay!

This Cottage was perfect for two of us. We enjoyed the quiet comfort. It was convenient yet set away from the touristy hustle and hustle.
