About Ben Piller

My wife and I grew up in Illinois, vacationing to Door County many times. After spending our honeymoon in Door County, it became a dream of ours to own a home there. We have now achieved our dream, and are opening it up for others to experience it's natural beauty.

Ben Piller purchased this house in 2014

Why Ben Piller chose Door County

We love this location, as it is far enough away for complete solitude, but, close enough to all the amazing activities Door County has to offer.

What makes this house unique

Single family home, with privacy. Large and modern enough for todays family, but, set amongst Northern Door County forest.

A wonderful, relaxing stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our three children thoroughly enjoyed staying at this house. It was large enough for five so we could each have a comfortable place to sleep and plenty of space. The kids loved the Foosball table in the garage and it gave them something fun to do while we prepared dinners. We also loved having campfires every night!

The location at the north of Door County was perfect, as we visited the busier towns to the south and then retreated to our quiet stay in Gills Rock. It was also wonderful to be only minutes away from the ferry to Washington Island.

The house itself was clean, well equip, and very comfortable. I would definitely stay here again!

Great for guys fishing trip.

  • 5 of 5

Me and my 2 brother-in-laws (we are in our 40's & 50's) stayed in this comfortable for our fishing trip. We were minutes away from Europe Lake and close to other fishing spots.

The house is well equipped with anything you'd need. After a long day on the lake, we enjoyed grilling some steaks on the grill and enjoying some beer and wine (yes they had a corkscrew!).

We hope to return again!

Read if you look for a nice place to stay in Door County

  • 5 of 5

This house is located in the most beautiful part of Door County near very tip of the peninsula. This area is very peaceful and it is not crowded. The house offers true privacy. It is also very comfortable and offers plenty of space.

We have enjoyed this place for two weeks. And so did our dogs. The house was very clean and it had everything we needed for our stay. So we felt completely at home. The satellite tv and Internet were working well.

We spent many hours hiking in Newport State Park which is only a few miles away. And it is the most beautiful in Door Conty. We also recommend to drive to Rowley's Bay for a fish boil and Swedish bakery goods. Watching sunset from Shoreline restaurant which is only 1/2 mile away is a treat. We also attended pipe organ concert at Shepherd of the Bay church in EllisonBay, and it was very nice.

The house could easily fit a large family . Our party had 5 people and we were very comfortable in 3 bedrooms. I also must add the owners are very friendly and helpful if you need anything.

Cozy home in northern door county with friendly owners

  • 5 of 5

We booked a last minute vacation here for four days and Ben was very timely in his response to our request. The house has alot of charm, has been nicely remodeled, and it was especially nice to be able to bring our dog along for the trip. The campfire pit was also very relaxing considering that there's hardly any traffic at night since there's not much north of the house. It's about a ten minute drive to Newport state park and 20 minutes to Peninsula State park so hiking and enjoying the state parks is very close by. Make sure to get some smoked fish in Gill's Rock while you are there, which is walking distance from the house.

The house was perfect for our stay over Fall Festival. It was awesome that the dogs had a place outside that they could stay fenced in while we had a fire at night and while we were loading and unloading our necessities. There were also nice, quiet roads to take them for walks in the morning. It was also nice having Bea's across the street, we had forgotten sugar for our coffee and were able to walk over and borrow some :) The kitchen was well equipped with everything that we needed. The bedrooms were large and accommodating and the beds were nice and comfortable. I could have slept on the couch, it was so comfy! :) Can't wait to stay again and will have to make our reservations for next year!
