A lovely retreat and gracious hosts. The property has a butterfly garden that I was able to explore. I was provided a travel guide that helped me explore the area and homemade blueberry cider cake!!

Quiet location on a country road, Jon was very welcoming and friendly, level spot with super easy access. I had great conversation with Jon on everything from building airplanes to solar options for RV's. Unfortunately I did not meet Ramelle but that was my fault - I spent the days on long hikes so when I came back to my rig I was exhausted and just crashed. Oops probably shouldn't say that in case a pilot might read this! I recommend this host without hesitation.

We had a great stay. Super nice hosts and we loved the inquisitive cats. We parked on a large level area in front of the plane hanger. He has a very interesting hobby of building ultra-light aircraft. This is a convenient spot to explore Strugeon Bay from. We highly recommend Plane Door County and would glady return.
