Clean, comfortable, quiet

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed the location of the cottage. Good walks to the coffee shop and Shoreline Marina. Close access to the ferry to Washington Island. Terry, the owner offered her waterfront to sit and this made the cottage even more enjoyable. We would rent again.

Relaxing Atmosphere

  • 4 of 5

This is a great place to stay if you're looking for a peaceful relaxing time. It is also very pet friendly which is a bonus if your "kids" have four paws. It's not the Ritz but it has the charm of an historic log cabin with modern amenities. The only truly disappointing part is the lake view which is located a few houses down the road and you have to go through someone else's property to get there and their deck overlooks your sitting area so it is not private. However, the view is fantastic. I know it was stated that the lake view was across the road in the description but the picture makes it look private. I wouldn't let this deter you from staying here however because everything else was very nice. It was so relaxing and enjoyable to have a fire in the backyard and to make s'mores at the end of a day exploring the parks or seeing the Northern Sky Theatre at Peninsula State Park. The local restaurants were very good in both Gills Rock and Ellison Bay. Overall, we had a very good time at Doc's Hideaway and would recommend staying at the cottage.

Owner's Response: Just wanted you to know the property you walk through is the cabin owners and no one else has access to their patio. As the waterfront is prime property no one has a private setting . All the property of the waterfront homes adjoin and no one can impede anyone else's view per code . thanks for coming .

Quiet and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

Our week stay was quiet and relaxing, just what we were looking for. The cabin is cozy and well maintained. The squirrels in the woods were entertaining. Thank you so much for the use of your beautiful log cabin.

Nice cabin, but the information, and photos about the cabin are misleading.

  • 2 of 5

This cabin itself was nice, but the rest was a real let down. There is no lake access, unless you walk down the street, and through the neighbors property. The opposite side of the street from the cabin is crowded full of other properties, and the lake can barely be seen. The fire pit was poor, and three of the four chairs around it were broken. There were dog feces in the grass, and bumblebees in the wall flying out right next to the back sliding doors into the yard. The kayak, canoe, and bicycles have to be borrowed from the owner, and watercraft launched on their private pier where everyone, including the neighbors can gawk at you. There were none on the property itself. This is not the place for you if you want privacy. Load neighbors parties on the weekend, and construction across the street were noisy. I would not recommend this rental. I could have gotten much better somewhere else for less cost.
