Cook County families are complicated entities.
We usually hold close family members. Admittedly, sometimes they make us nuts. At the end of the day, though, family is the foundation that most people rely upon and hold tightest.
When you're coordinating a family reunion, whether they are coming from Cook County or a few from everywhere, Bayview Resort & Harbor is the welcoming destination to reconnect and reaffirm those family connections. Break away from the hubbub of daily life; step into our five acres of fun and relaxation with those who mean the most to you.
Many Cook County families have decades-long traditions of reconnecting at Bayview Resort & Harbor, year after year. Visit us, and you'll see why.
Our waterfront property 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.
Relax on the beach. Enjoy 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. Eat s'mores at a roaring fire.
Rekindle those family sports rivalries in tennis, basketball, tether ball or croquet. Prepare favorite family dishes in our comfortable cottages. Or, just lounge and swap those family stories that, no matter how many times repeated, never grow old.
We invite Cook County families in size from 6 to 60 to renew (or start) their own family reunion traditions. Our homey cottages feature spacious 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 towns, Ellison Bay - even in summer - remains a sanctuary from all you "want to get away from." You won't find Cook 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 low-key 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 boat, bring it along and dock at our private slips. Lake Michigan is more than picturesque – its boating, sailing and fishing opportunities are unmatched.
For those who prefer terrain-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 beautiful 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.
