A Fun and Relaxing Getaway in Door County
My sister rented this place for my birthday. What a great present in an absolutely beautiful area of Door County. This a unique location (on the border of a State Park) and a spacious house that was very comfortable for our 3 families. We hiked on the park trails and took long walks on the beach but we spent most of the time just hanging out in this gorgeous home. There are awesome views of the evergreen and birch trees from every room. We loved the fireplace - it made our stay cozy. We played dozens of games of ping pong. Our kids loved the whirlpool tub. I liked sleeping under the stars in the Master Bedroom with the skylight above. I would highly recommend this home and beautiful area for families that are looking for something special and unique. I couldn’t have asked for a better birthday present. We are looking forward to returning again in the Spring.
Glad you had a nice time. Happy Birthday!
Beautiful Home on a Wooded Lot with Great View of the Park
We loved relaxing by the fireplace and had fun playing ping pong. The sand beach, the park trails, and the entire area is beautiful. Upon arrival, we found the home to be very clean and comfortable. The rental manager was prompt and accommodating. We are looking forward to coming back again next year!
Thanks so much. We are blessed to have a home in one of the most beautiful areas in Door County.
Great house and property manager
House worked out perfect for us and our guests, well maintained and great views. Our property manager Fred was very responsive, flexible and accommodating. Whenever I had a question he would respond within minutes and was very helpful. Booked home already for next year.
I look forward to seeing you again next year!
Not worth the amount charged!
This is a beautiful location and the stars were amazing. However, here are our concerns: the value for the charge is NOT there. We’ve stayed in many vrbos and have never before written a negative review. We feel we made a mistake trusting the description. It is very outdated and feels/is dirty. We also had to pay an additional $300 extra person fee even though we had a total of 2 people stay the first night and 8 the other 2 nights. Some of the ladies bowed out between April and October. He would not refund the extra person charge and instead gave us “linen and cleaning service” (he said firewood too. There was none inside, but we found some outside)?” There were not enough sheets for the beds. As is, 16 would definitely not fit comfortably. The futon upstairs is out in the open and like a table. One of the 3 bedrooms is more for kids- bunk bed. I slept in the pull out in the ping pong room. TV would not work - not strong enough WiFi.
Cleanliness was a huge concern: the fireplace was almost unusable because the ashes had not been cleaned out in quite some time. I couldn’t find a scoop to do it myself. There was a dirty, crusty towel hanging on the towel bar in one of the bathrooms and a used washcloth on the faucet in the same bathroom. There were water stains on the mattress pad of the bunkbed. We went to use a blanket from the linen closet and grass fell out of it. A balloon hanging from the ceiling fan, lots of dust, etc. Had we paid a reasonable price, some of that could be overlooked. As is, I feel horrible for booking this place and making the ladies pay what we did - it was not worth it. A hotel would’ve been a lot cheaper, cleaner, and probably more comfortable. This place has excellent potential but desperately needs some updates before it becomes dilapidated. And a better cleaning service would also be beneficial. I do have photos of some of our concerns. We really hope you can resurrect this place!
If you read the reviews before and after this review - you will notice this review is an “outlier” written by someone that was angry that 5 members of her group cancelled last minute and she was stuck with extra charges. That being said - this REVIEW HAS SERVED AS A WAKE-UP CALL. As a result of this review 1) we have made some improvements in our home, 2) we have expanded and clarified the duties of our cleaning and linen service and 3) we have changed our refund policy. I had not been a very “hands-on” rental manager since July 2019 when I took a job as national sales manager for an educational firm. (a job I left in October to return to my job as K-8 technology specialist). After visiting our rental home for the first time in several months, I agree that 1) Re: the cleanliness of our home - although our cleaning service has done a great job with our bathrooms and kitchen area (their main responsibility), it seemed they had not spent any time dusting and there are some areas they have been missing. Going forward our service will spend extra time after each rental dusting and cleaning the hard-to-get-to places resulting in the immaculately clean home that it is now. 2) Re: the “crusty towel” & washcloth left on the side of the “laundry sink” in the half bath - my cleaning service apologized and “will not let that happen again” 3) Re: the blanket in the closet - a previous renter must have taken our blankets outside and brought them back in dirty. Going forward our service will always check the blankets in this closet to ensure that they are clean, 4) Re: the stain on the mattress pad in bunk bedroom - we have replaced the mattress pads on all the beds. In addition - we have replaced all of the pillow covers and several sets of older linens, 5) The balloon hanging from our 40-foot cathedral ceiling fan has been removed and the fan has been dusted. On the other hand - SOME OF THE OTHER CLAIMS are simply NOT TRUE 1) re: “I feel I made a mistake trusting the description”. NOT TRUE! The written description of our home is 100% accurate and we have actually made some updates and additions since our pictures were taken. We have a 3 bedroom home with 1 Queen in master, 2 double beds in the lakeside bedroom & 1 twin & 1 double/twin bunk bed in the parkside bedroom & 1 queen sleeper sofa in rec room (not pictured). The Futon in the loft looks like a futon bed exactly as pictured & described. We have actually updated furniture since these photos were taken.
Such a fun unique property! We loved spending time in the lookout tower and cuddled up by the fire. A short bike ride can get you to cave point as well which was fantastic! Fred was easy to work with and accomodiating.
I am glad you enjoyed the "crow's nest" - that is one of my favorite places in our home!
Great Host & Great Location; Would Recommend
We stayed at the Sand Dunes with our family of 4 and our friends' family of 4. It was spacious and enjoyable. Fred was a great host and quickly answered my multitude of questions. Overall, I would recommend this home.
PROS: Fantastic location, lovely home, wonderful indoor fireplace - which was great for fall. The home was spacious, close to the beach and had great walking trails into the state park.
CONS: We brought our own sheets to avoid the linen charge, this was fine, but a lot of work. I was well aware of this ahead of time but it is a hassle and I would prefer a home with linen's included. I would have loved to see this home in it's heyday (90's). The architecture is phenomenal and you can tell care went into building it. Today, the insides could use an uplift. Nothing is functionally wrong, but the carpet is tired, the woodwork is stained, the furniture is older, and the floors have seen better days. None of these, however, interfered with our great trip and, again, Fred was a responsive host! Thanks!
Thanks so much to this reviewer!
Since reading this review over a month ago we decided to do everything possible to bring our home back to its "heyday" in the late 90’s using the suggestions of this reviewer and our own critical eyes. Over the past month we have 1) changed our linen policy, 2) hired a professional to clean our carpeting and repair a couple burned sections near the fireplace, 3) hired a professional that thoroughly cleaned our woodwork and removed the stains, 4) replaced an older couch and older chair with more modern pieces. In addition, we have 1) replaced all of our older linens and stained bed sheets, 2) replaced all of our older throw rugs, 3) repaired the dining room table and 4) Replaced the broken shelves in the refrigerator.
We now feel our home is back to its “heyday”.
Thanks again to this reviewer!
