Almost Perfect

  • 4 of 5

The property was pretty much as described - perfectly located, very spacious and well maintained. There were several things that were a bit lacking - for example, the kitchen was inconsistently supplied, and its size and amenities made it difficult to cook for the seven of us. It would have been helpful if there were more local information, such as places to buy groceries, restaurants and other recommendations. There is neither internet nor cell service in the house, though it has a land line for local calls. Finally, we were unlucky to be in Door County for the alewife die-off when dead fish covered the shore, limiting beach access - we are told that this does not happen every year.

Aside from the above minor inconveniences, we would recommend the house for families or large groups seeking a modern and convenient vacation retreat.

Owner's Response: A complete list of things to do and where to buy is/was sent along with your "how to access the building when you arrive". I assume document was not read. Internet access and DISH network was added in season 2012 and active currently. Not sure what inconsistently supplied kitchen means--By state law we cannot have foodstuffs for your use. New pots and pans purchased for 2013 season. Size and shape of kitchen is what it is and visible in the pictures. Our family of ten do fine but we are not all in the kitchen. Thanks for the comments.

A perfect Family Reunion!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was PERFECT!! Just as described, clean and well maintained and BEAUTIFUL views!! We had a fantastic time... I, personally, have been to DC many time and this was, by far, the best experience I have had. Everyone kept telling me what a great reunion I planned, how much they LOVED the houses, and how perfect DC is!

Thank you for helping to make all that possible!!

I would recommend this property to anyone! Very nice house and the owners are a pleasure to deal with.
