    Thanks so much Jon and Ramelle for an excellent description, for allowing me to borrow several tools that I didn't have, and for the very quiet country setting!

    Situated between the Green Bay and Lake Michigan is a little treasure called Door County. And situated midway up the Door County peninsula is Jon & Ramelle’s place. It’s an ideal spot, and we were happy to make use of their 30amp electric, and quiet setting. So close to the many parks, vineyards and quaint rural sights to see. It was cherry-picking season. Wild turkey and deer were everywhere. Jon and Ramelle are very gracious hosts. We’re glad they shared their home with us.

    So enjoyed our stay here! The Hosts are So Nice! And their 3 kitties are adorable. Their property is neat as a pin. We Loved Door County! Did the loop to Gills Rock and around. It lived up to the Hype. Also visited Green Bay, Lambeau Field- an easy drive from this place. The only (very small) drawback is you have to back in from the road into the specific spot. The hosts have provided cones to assist. Other than that, a PERFECT STOP!

    Ramelle and Jon are great hosts! Their location is level, has water and electric hookups and is quiet. Ramelle has a beautiful native butterfly prairie all in bloom to help monarch's with their journey. She is so knowledgeable of the area its like having a concierge on site. Jon is very interesting to talk to. He was converting an ambulance into a motorhome and gave us a tour! He also builds experimental aircraft and teaches others how to build their own. I loved the wildlife and the friendly, inquisitive cats. We will definitely be back.
