Location is everything! Steve has a historic home close to the water and Peninsula State Park! We enjoyed our stay, would love to come back. Steve was very helpful with directions, came and gave us a tour of the house.

Beautiful spacious home. Steve is an amazing host. The kitchen is unbelievably stocked with anything you could possibly need. Lots of sleeping room. Outside gathering places (wraparound porch, fire pit & grilling) are amazing.

The Ellmann House is extremely close to the main attractions, yet secluded, which I appreciated. The home had every amenity I could think of needing. Steve is so kind and welcoming, he really makes you feel at home
