Thank you so much for the use of your beautiful home! We enjoyed everything so much!! We enjoyed the lake being so close. Our boys were out there everyday. It was great having wood available for the fire pit too! The property was great to play games outside or just relaxing. We’d love to come back! Thank you again!
We love this home! Perfect for our family. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare a fantastic meal. Our new granddaughter had fun exploring all over the place. A great fire pit to gather around, too. Hope we can return next year. Door County is paradise to us. Thanks! The beach was great!

What a beautiful home! We all enjoyed our weeklong stay- 3 adults, 2 one year olds(boy/girl twins), 7 year old boy and our little Labradoodle. The kitchen was well stocked and very organized; the landscaping is gorgeous; the great room with the wonderful views was our favorite place to gather. Our 7 year old loved watching the hummingbirds and filled up the feeder with more sugar water. Would love to return in the future!

We had a great stay at your lovely home! So relaxing and we really felt like we got away from the hustle and bustle. Our Bichon/Maltese mix enjoyed his first vacation to Door County too. Highlights: dinner at Chop in sister Bay, kayaking on the Mink River Estuary, breakfast and lunch at Harbor Fish Market and Grille in Bailey’s Harbor, relaxing and cooking out on the deck here!! We really enjoyed this beautiful setting.

We had a great time at your cabin-perfect for a long weekend! It was great to stay someplace a bit quieter over Labor Day weekend. We loved spending time at the beach, hiking in Newport State Park and gathering in the kitchen to cook meals and play board games (highly recommend Rack-O!!)

We loved your home for our ladies weekend visit. Convenient to Door County sites. Having ability to use kitchen facilities was wonderful. Relaxing and peaceful.
Thank you for renting out your lovely home. We had a wonderful time! My husband and I come up with our family every year for the Townline Art Fair in Ephraim. This was a perfect place for us to stay with my parents, mother in law, and our 2 year old son. We will definitely be inquiring for next year! Thank you again!

A wonderful time was had by all, rain or shine! Anyone lucky enough to find their way to this Northwoods hideaway is blessed with beauty and peace. Thanks for sharing your home. We enjoyed every minute.
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us. It was the perfect place for our new family to stay. We loved taking early morning walks to the beach and the sounds of the frogs at night. The morning dove above your patio door fed her babies every morning as well. We spent a lot of time in Sister Bay and even did Baby Goat Yoga at Door County Creamery. Your home was the perfect escape and we cannot thank you enough.

We have been coming to Door County for thirty-some years, but have never stayed in Ellison Bay. We loved having the beach nearby to swim our dog, the wooded surroundings, sitting on the back deck, watching the hummingbirds come to the feeder, monitoring the mourning dove and her babies above the screen door, and just spending time with family. We found our new favorite restaurant, Fireside which is also nearby.
You have a beautiful home and thank you so much for sharing it with us for the week!

We’ve enjoyed our week in Door County- this was our third visit-but our first trip with the grandchildren. We liked walks to the beach, an evening at the fire pit, watching the hummingbirds, walking and riding bikes around the loop and relaxing on the deck and in the great room.
While our days were busy with activities- a sunrise cruise, ziplining, a fishing trip, shopping in Fish Creek and Sister Bay, Cave Point Park and Whitefish Dunes Park- our evenings were spent making and sharing meals together. Many games were played around the kitchen table.

We enjoyed our stay at Hoffmans Up North. Thanks for opening up your lovely home to us! The group from Milwaukee has been coming up to Door Co. for the past 5 years and your house is definitely in the running for our favorite place. We loved that the property was so quiet and secluded and a short walk to the beach and Newport State Park. Our dog especially loved the freedom! Again, thanks for sharing your home!
