Well appointed full amenity kitchen with everything you need to prepare, cook and serve meals.

Lake Michigan, at this vacation home’s frontage, has a sand bottom and relatively shallow water levels. Therefore, on most sunny calm days in the summer, the water warms up quite quickly making it a great place for children to play and swim. For the scuba diving enthusiast, a few hundred feet off the property’s shore is the residual of a large dock and various vessels dating back to the 1800’s. On January 1st, each year, the adjoining Lakeside Park is the site of one of the state’s largest polar bear club plunges.

This vacation home is within easy walking distance of a range of restaurants and bars, kayak outfitters, various shops, a grocery store, coffee and ice cream shops, parks, and churches. Besides the adjoining Lakeside Park with its small watercraft launches and playground equipment; other parks, within a short two block walk, include the Erskine Rest Area with its historical little root cellar, and the sports park with its frisbee golf course, softball diamond, and soccer field. Adjoining the sports park is Jacksonport’s Town Hall (vintage 2019) which is available for events.

Just outside the village but still associated with the Town of Jacksonport are other points of interest including Whitefish Dunes State Park; Cave Point County Park (the most visited in Door County); Meridian County Park (located half way between the equator and north pole); two large inland lakes consisting of Clark Lake and Kangaroo Lake; Simon Creek Vineyard and Winery; animal farms including Waseda and Plum Loco; and various other establishments.

Beyond the town itself, Jacksonport is central to Door County. Highway 57, as well as County Trunks A and V, provide easy access to all other portions of the County. These roadways providing easy and direct access to heavier commercialized areas of the county yet allow you to easily return to a calmer village setting, Jacksonport, for which Door County has historically been known.

    Our group of 6 adults had a wonderful stay. We started our days with beautiful and tranquil sunrises on the expansive deck. The fully equipped kitchen allowed us to easily prepare our coffee and breakfast before venturing out to enjoy Door County. The beach is amazing. We are already planning a trip back next summer to take full advantage of the sandy beach. We ended our days by grabbing a meal at the local restaurants and enjoying our evening cocktails by a bonfire under the the moon and stars.

    Great location to explore all of Door County or just stay at the house and enjoy the lake life!! Everything was wonderful, clean and Les was close by to answer any questions! We had some wonderful weather and enjoyed swimming in the lake every day with the kids, very easy entry, sandy and shallow so the kids could enjoy by themselves. Shipwreck not far from shore you can easily swim out to. Farmers market was also an added bonus at the park next to the house. Les gave great recommendations for food and where to explore.

    Beautiful waterfront to enjoy beach and water sports.

    Loved staying at the Jacksonport house again. This is our 2nd time and it’s even better than our 1st stay in 2019. Looks like they’ve invested in new furniture, a new stone break wall, and a new wonderfully maintained beach! The house is right by the park, farmers market and Island Fever. A+ vacationing.

    We needed to reschedule to an earlier week, which in June is before things really heat up around there, (so we did not get to test the air conditioner or much of th swimming!) but the host was gracious and generous with his support. The house is right next to a park with a playground, which the 10-year-old grandkids loved! The sandy beach is shallow for a long ways out! Thanks, Lee!

    This is a beautiful property with private beach access. The home is clean and provides everything you need. The only drawback is you are right next to the public beach so during weekend times there would be people that would come over to the private area. Other than that it’s a relaxing and beautiful area that we will visit again!!!

    This house was very clean and comfortable. With four adults and two kids we had plenty of room to spread out. The beach here is fantastic! Even with the extremely high lake level there was still plenty of dry sand. The sandy bottom slopes down very gradually which makes it perfect for little kids to wade and practice swimming. And there's a shipwreck just a few hundred feet off shore! We brought our canoe with and had no trouble spotting the wreck. The town was nice and quiet (exactly what we wanted) but still had two solid restaurants and a little grocery store just a few blocks away. The only small drawback was that we usually ran out of either cups or bowls before running the dishwasher at the end of the day. Not a big deal but would be nice to have more dishes available. Overall we really enjoyed our stay at this house and will come back if we get the chance.

    Gorgeous spot, can't beat being that close to the lake!

    This was an amazing lake house to bring our family to. The house is nicely furnished and very clean. My only negative is that there are not enough linens and towels. There are no extra blankets for the night when the air is chilly. However, we loved the house and the location (it's on the quiet side) and having the grocery store, park, farmers market in the park, and the restaurants were great as well. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you for the wonderful family memories!!

    We stayed here for 5 nights with 7yr, 5yr and 2yr old. Great location - not as touristy as Bailey's Harbor, Fish Creek, Sister's Bay and other small towns nearby which was perfect for us. We spent mornings and evenings playing at the beach (the house is located between two public beaches and has its own beach area). We found lots of very interesting rocks which the kids loved hunting for. There is a playground right next to the house. The other more touristy towns are a short drive away and are fun to explore during the day. Would definitely recommend this location. The house was clean and it had everything we needed.

    Great location. We loved having the park with farmers market and playground literally as neighbors. We came for the 4th of July and could see fireworks along the shore to the north and south. Beach was almost non-existent due to high water levels all over the county, but we made use of the small boat loanch next door and entered that way. All sand bottom and clear water. icky floaties ;) House was a great size with a central gathering area with each bedroom in it's own corner of the house. Would love to stay there again.

    We came as a family of five to Door County for the first time and really enjoyed our stay. The house is in a very quiet area which was perfect. The walk right out to the beach was great and the park next door was nice. The only downside was that the kitchen was extremely limited with the amount of cooking utensils, pots & pans, etc., which made it fairly difficult to cook meals. We would suggest supplying the kitchen with more pots and pans, a grease screen and definitely more than one kitchen towel. Otherwise though, the space was nice and the layout was great. We definitely would like to come back again.

    If you’re looking for a quiet and relaxing location with an awesome private beach than this is the place for you. The owner was very welcoming and knowledgeable of the area. The touristy areas are only 10-20 minutes away (Egg Harbor 10 min, Fish Creek 15, Sister Bay 20). Island Fever Rum Bar and Grill is a ONE minute walk away and the food is good and the margaritas rock! My eight year old daughter loved the beach and it’s very safe for small kids. The water is very shallow. Great sunrises and a perfect fire pit for making s’mores or enjoying an evening by the lake. The only reason I rated it four stars was the queen mattress’s were very hard. Also the furniture wasn’t the most comfortable. 4.5 stars is a more accurate rating.

    We live in the city, when we’re on vacation we want quiet! This is a great spot to stay to achieve that! We lucked out with beautiful weather and swam right from the front yard in Lake Michigan. Easy to get to anywhere in the county from here. Plenty of room, very clean and large windows. My only complaint was that the kitchen could use a few more basics for cooking and a few more basic supplies on hand. I would highly recommend this location!

    We had a glorious vacation at this rental in Jacksonport. Being right on the lake was wonderful - nothing better than just being able to put the kids in their suits and walk a few steps and be on the beach. We loved the large deck that had quite a bit of shade and an outdoor table for eating. The inside of the home was very clean and extremely spacious. The large kitchen and was wonderful as well as the washer/dryer in the basement. Added plus was that linens and towels were provided - so nice not to have to pack them. This rental is probably the best I have stayed at in terms of being close to park/town/grocery store yet once you walk out the backyard you feel like you are natural paradise. We ended the stay with a long walk down the beach which was amazing. Thank you for the wonderful memories!

    Our group of six women, age 14 to 70, just finished a week at this rental. The home was so comfortable with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, great living room and kitchen. Also, linens and towels were provided. We ate our meals out on the deck facing the lake, and the rest of the times we were on the sand beach and in the water. The water temp during our week was great. Lake Michigan can be cold, but we were very comfortable floating, swimming, and paddle boarding. Our host was available to answer any questions or attend to any issue that we had. The home was sparkling clean when we arrived! The central air was very efficient and kept us cool at night. We did do our shopping at our favorite places, went to a play one evening and also enjoyed the drive-in theater. We all agreed that this was the best rental we have had in all the years we have vacationed in Door County. We have requested this home again next summer.

    We stayed here for a week and loved it! The house fit us perfectly -- 4 adults and 2 kids under 5. The 2nd bedroom has a walk-in closet that was perfect for our 1-year-old's pack n play. The kitchen is well-equipped, and we cooked several meals there, including grilling. The kids loved the sand beach and shallow (but cold) water. We didn't go swimming, since our week turned out to be pretty cool (in the 60s), but had a lot of fun playing in the sand and wading around. The park with beach and playground was also great for our little ones. It is literally steps away, but the large trees around the property provided plenty of privacy. The adults enjoyed the fire pit and stargazing after the kids went to sleep. The lake views are amazing from the kitchen, living room, back deck and master bedroom. One morning we saw 2 eagles on the beach! Jacksonport is small and comparatively quiet, but it has all the essentials -- a grocery store, a few good restaurants and a bakery -- all within walking distance. We had a great time hiking at Whitefish Dunes State Park and Cave Point County Park which are a short drive away. Hopefully, we'll be able to make it back again next year. Definitely recommend this property!

    Our family of five (including three boys 15, 13, and 9) had a wonderful stay at this clean home with all of the necessities. We loved the private beach area that had a nice sandy spot and overlooked the beautiful waters. The lake is shallow from the beach for about 30 to 40 feet. It makes a great place to play catch with a football and enjoy a little bit warmer water. My husband and sons loved floating out and investigating the shipwreck that is not far from the shore. The park next door has a playground which would be great for families with smaller children. We enjoyed it as the location of the farmers market on Tuesday when fresh breads, danishes, and pies were only steps away.

    Highly recommended!
