If you are taking a trip to Door County, this area is nice but you may want to think about renting a cottage/home from another place. This wasn't a bad place and quick access to the Swedish bakery was a plus, also the heated pool was great for my toddler. We had 8 adults and 2 toddlers in one of the vacation houses, the area was pretty and the house was well equipped. It didn't have a/c but luckily the highs were low 70's so that's fine. The score for bed comfort was F-. no one had a good bed, I ended up sleeping on the couch. Also, no direct access to the lake/beach. It was very pretty views and had kayak rentals. Everyone seemed very nice and it was clean. There was a wedding here, that seemed like a nice place to have a TON of people all have access to different styles of rooms. No bike rental near by which seems like a glaring oversite considering the flat and lovely roads that surround this area, Check vbro or other cottage rentals in this Sister Bay area if you're going with less than 10 people.
