Lake County families are complicated entities.
We usually hold close family members. Admittedly, sometimes they make us crazy. At the end of the day, though, family is the gravity that most people rely upon and hold closest.
When you're planning a family reunion, whether they are coming from Lake 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.
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 gathering activities memorable.
Chill 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. Enjoy s'mores at a roaring fire.
Restart 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 host Lake 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 secluded porches. Most sleep up to eight.
You'll be able to sleep, too. Unlike many other Door County hubs, Ellison Bay - even in summer - remains a sanctuary from all you "want to get away from." You won't find Lake County heavy traffic, long lines or general commotion.
You will find welcoming amenities just a short walk away from Bayview Resort & Harbor. Several Door County area friendly restaurants offer casual or high-end 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.
For those who prefer land-based scenery, 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 scenic 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 connection that only family can create.
