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

Dane County families are complicated entities.

 

We usually treasure family members. Admittedly, sometimes they make us nuts. At the end of the day, though, family is the gravity that most people rely upon and hold tightest.

 

When you're coordinating a family reunion, whether they are coming from Dane County or a few from everywhere, Bayview Resort & Harbor is the perfect 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 Dane County families have decades-long traditions of reconnecting at Bayview Resort & Harbor, year after year. Visit us, and you'll see why.

 

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

 

Lie 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.

 

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

 

We invite Dane 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, complete kitchens and secluded 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 all you "want to get away from." You won't find Dane County heavy traffic, long lines or general commotion.

 

You will find inviting amenities just a short walk away from Bayview Resort & Harbor. Several Door County area friendly restaurants offer low-key or formal 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 scenic – its boating, sailing and fishing opportunities are unparalleled.

 

For those who prefer land-based activity, 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 majestic bluffs at Ellison Bluff County Park are not to be missed!

 

Yes, there's a lot to do on the scenic Door County peninsula. During a gathering 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.
