Lovely Winter get-away.
100 plus acre property with only 25 side/side town houses. 2large bedrooms, full kitchen, dining room that seats 6, fold out couch, and of course the wonderful living room with the wood burning fireplace. Flat screens in living room and bedrooms. Two decks. A gas grill. Garage. Activity building with pool, workout room, craft area and a lounge. During the week they have a wine and cheese party, ice cream social and craft classes for young and old. They have cross country skis and ice skates. Hopefully you have snow. Lots of hiking trails. Located in the woods and on Kangaroo Lake. A great time to explore Door County. Quiet and manageable. Some days you don't want to leave. Sometimes front desk staff can be grumpy. Don't let that bother you.

We have been coming to the Rushes since I was 9 years old, and it has been great every time! We go over New Years, so it is wonderful to have a few of the locations open to keep things interesting, but have all of the usual vacationers gone so it isn't packed and stressful. Such a wonderful place to get away from it all. Beautiful maintained trails for walking or cross country skiing, pool and hot tub are wonderful, movies to rent, so great having a full kitchen so you don't have to go out to eat for every meal. The Rushes provides a clean, nicely maintained place to get away from it all in a duplex that is like a large condo. It is not a fancy, modern hotel, but if you just want a nice place to unwind and snuggle in this is definitely the place to do it. We haven't been up in the summer, but the reservations are almost always booked so that must be a good sign. The lake frontage is gorgeous and I know they have lots of boat rentals, etc. We just love going in the off-season!

We had purchased a voucher for a time share stay and selected The Rushes for it's proximity to our home in Minnesota. Close enough to drive, but far enough away to make it a getaway. It was perfect! Grounds were beautiful with the new snow we got during our stay. I took advantage of the work out room almost daily. Having it to myself each time was great. I enjoyed some of the other activities-the water exercise class was a hoot. I was the youngest one in the class and it was so much fun. Bingo was fun, the selection of craft activities was excellent too. My husband rarely left the condo and enjoyed every minute of it! Condo was clean, comfortable, roomy. They supplied everything you could possibly think of--a high chair was even in one of the closets! We enjoyed the fireplace everyday-you would never run out of the firewood they supply. We liked that quiet peacefulness of The Rushes immensely. It was just what I needed after a very long winter.

Thanks for taking the time to review your recent stay. Sorry to hear your comments regarding the firewood. I will take to our wood supplier to correct that issue. See you again in the spring ?

The Rushes is a decent property although severely outdated in some aspects. With it's dusty pink jacuzzi tub and washer and dryer from the 70's you know you are not in a 5 star property. We appreciated the size of the unit, but most of the space is wasted in the master bedroom and bathroom. The bed was extremely hard and old. There was no outlet on the whole wall where the headboard was. We had to purchase an extension cord because the resort did not have any to loan out. We had problems with the jacuzzi tub, but of course it was probably installed in the late 70s or early 80s so who can be surprised.
Since March is definately not the prime season we were dissapointed the resort offers NO activities on weekends. They seem to gear everything towards the long time owners. The pool closed at 9pm which is pretty early when on vacation. Our internet cable (no WiFi) did not work and neither did our DVD player remote. So every time we wanted to pause a move we had to do it manually. Whenever we called for help the front desk's answer was "check your binder". Well we read the binder and the instructions in it didn't work. Even so it was annoying to be told by someone basically hired to help people to "check the binder" for every single question we had. If I want to do some reading on vacation it won't be a three ring binder all about the resort I am staying at.
We did appreciate the hiking trails and the nice supply of wood. We ran out one day early, but we had a fire burning pretty much the whole stay.

The Rushes is a GREAT place! The townhouse has an attached garage which is especially nice in the winter! The garage was stacked with enough wood for our entire week! Everything worked great and had been updated with flat panel TV's and front loading washer and dryer. It was a GREAT week and we were able to enjoy a very relaxing time which we both needed!
