We have been coming hear for years and it's like home to us. The best staff and accommodation for the money. Where can you get all the wood, wall to ceiling fire place, garage and lake and fully supplied condo?

We've been coming to the rushes for our annual, week long family vacation for a few years. We love door County but not necessarily the crowds, the rushes are perfect. Quiet, well maintained, lots of amenities, private lake (huge!), and 15 minutes from anything. The units are enormous and well appointed.

You won't be disappointed staying here! Spacious, private condos in the woods or on Kangaroo Lake. Great amenities including private garages for each unit, wood fireplaces and gas grills full kitchens and laundry in every unit. Great beach, pool, tennis, hiking trails in The Rushes private wilderness reserve! You'll find this resort central and convenient to everything in Door County.

My mom had wanted to come to Door County for a long time, but had not been able to exchange her time share, and when she finally found an open date, none of her usual friends could come along.

This is the place to stay if you need some time away. Surrounded by nature, and a large townhouse will help you to relax. Many amenities including swimming pool, boats, beach, tennis courts and more. Even in the winter, a calming fire to end the night helps you forget all about work.
