Plan Your Next Door County Family Reunion or Gathering on Ellison Bay 

McHenry County families are complex entities.

 

We usually hold close family members. Admittedly, sometimes they drive us crazy. At the end of the day, though, family is the foundation that most people rely upon and hold tightest.

 

When you're planning a family reunion, whether they are coming from McHenry County or a few from everywhere, Bayview Resort & Harbor is the welcoming destination to reconnect and reaffirm those family ties. Break away from the frenzy of daily life; step into our five acres of fun and relaxation with those who mean the most to you.

 

Many McHenry County families have decades-long traditions of gathering at Bayview Resort & Harbor, year after year. Visit us, and you'll learn why.

 

Our waterfront acreage has something for everyone. From young to old, morning to night, we have the setting and accommodations to make all your family gathering activities memorable.

 

Relax on the beach. Prepare a picnic. Fish off the pier. Swim to our lake raft. Take a canoe or kayak on the water. Romp with the newest generation at the playground. Devour s'mores at a roaring fire.

 

Rekindle those family sports rivalries in tennis, basketball, tether ball or croquet. Prepare favorite family foods in our comfortable cottages. Or, just lounge and swap those family tales that, no matter how many times repeated, never grow old.

 

We host McHenry County families in size from 6 to 60 to renew (or start) their own family reunion traditions. Our homey cottages feature wide open living rooms, large dining areas, full kitchens and private porches. Most sleep up to eight.

 

You'll be able to rest, too. Unlike many other Door County communities, Ellison Bay - even in summer - remains a sanctuary from the rest of the world You won't find McHenry County heavy traffic, long lines or general commotion.

 

You will find enticing amenities just a short walk away from Bayview Resort & Harbor. Several Door County area friendly restaurants offer relaxed or upscale dining. Stop at the Pioneer Store for food, beverages and incidentals. Ski and pontoon boat rentals are close by – just tie up at our dock.

 

If you own a watercraft, bring it along and dock at our private slips. Lake Michigan is more than picturesque – its boating, sailing and fishing opportunities are unparalleled.

 

For those who prefer land-based fun, great parks are only minutes away. Newport State Park offers wooded serenity just 10 minutes east. Bustling Peninsula State Park is 20 minutes south. Even closer, the picturesque bluffs at Ellison Bluff County Park are not to be missed!

 

Yes, there's a lot to do on the attractive Door County peninsula. During a family reunion at Bayview Resort & Harbor, the pace slows and time recedes. You'll enjoy modern conveniences, but feel that old-fashioned warmth and sense of belonging that only family can create.
