Vacation Ellison Bay
Ellison Bay is a great small community to visit. Nice coffee shop and local grocery store. Our stay in was ver nice. You can travel about eight miles south to Sister Bay for shopping , nice restaurants and parks. You also can travel eight mile north then take a ferry boat to Washington Island.
Owners slow to respond to a big problem
The sump pump in the basement under this rental cycled on/off every 10 seconds, with a low pitched droning sound that was disturbing throughout the entire first floor. The noise made the back bedroom unusable. Judging from comments from prior renters, this had been a problem for quite some time.
I registered a complaint with the owners each day. Day 1: left a message in the evening, no response until mid morning the next day. Day 2: the owner spend a long time talking about the water table and giving various reasons why the problem could not be fixed. Day 3: the owner installed a new sump pump and the noise was eliminated. The owner also offered to help me relocate if I was still unhappy, and refund some of my money if we did move. We decided to stay. As of our departure in late July, there still remains a large gushing sound outside of the back bedroom window from water discharge, cycling on/off every 10 seconds; I hope that the owners will fix this for the sake of future renters. If they aren't going to fix it, they should mention this fault in their property description.
Otherwise, comfortable beds, plenty of space, good location, nice kitchen, private patio, fairly quiet. A small grocery and restaurant in walking distance. 10 minutes from larger grocery and the strip in Sister Bay. Home is decorated with nudes and other artsy stuff.
This guest checked in on Saturday afternoon. Lodged his first complaint late Saturday night, when all stores in our remote location were closed. On Sunday, we insulated all the pipes and sump hole. By Monday, we had located and installed a new super-quiet sump pump. Meanwhile, each day, he lodged new complaints via handwriting on a paper plate attached to my gallery door. Things like "bathroom door sticks" This guy is lots of work to have around.
Our family enjoyed our stay at Moonbird. Lovely location, amenities, and atmosphere. Worked well for a long term stay as there was a nice kitchen and dining space. Plenty of space for all. Would recommend to others.
Great family experience
Moon Bird was a perfect place for our family va-ca in Door County. It is in a quiet area , but a short drive to any thing in the North part of the peninsula. We enjoyed our stay and loved the accommodations. It comfortably suited us, and everything we needed was there. I especially enjoyed reading a book by a local author that was on the bookshelf. We went on three boat tours and learned many things on each one. Be sure to go to Washington Island! It was well worth the time. The sunset tour was breathtaking. The only negative thing was a noisy sump pump, but we got used to it. It was a great experience, and we would highly recommend the Moon Bird property to anyone.
Enjoyed our stay in this quiet cute cottage. Wonderful art throughout. Walking distance to restaurants, galleries, parks and shoreline. Really loved the fenced in patio area for sitting and relaxing. Very quiet part of the peninsula which was great for our family and our dogs!
Thanks, it was lovely to have you at this special time for your family. I hope to see you again.
House is very much as advertised. Some nice little extra touches not usually found in rentals.
