McHenry County families are complicated entities.
We usually treasure family members. Admittedly, sometimes they make us batty. At the end of the day, though, family is the gravity 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 perfect destination to reconnect and reaffirm those family connections. Break away from the rush of daily life; step into our five acres of fun and relaxation with those who mean the most to you.
Our waterfront location 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. 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 hang out and swap those family tales that, no matter how many times repeated, never grow old.
We invite McHenry County families in size from 6 to 60 to renew (or start) their own family reunion traditions. Our welcoming cottages feature expansive living rooms, large dining areas, full kitchens and secluded porches. Most sleep up to eight.
You'll be able to rest, 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 McHenry 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 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.
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 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.
