Lori Garrity
Cozy, Convenient, and Comfortable
We highly recommend Compass Cove. Located close to downtown Sturgeon Bay with a perfect little breakfast place, not even a block away. The home was beautifully decorated with all the amenities we needed. The King size bed was very comfortable as well as the furniture. Perfect place for your Door County get away! The host was very responsive and helpful too!

Had a Great Time - Loved the House
We found the house clean and nicely decorated. It was well stocked with the necessaries. Close enough to run up to Washington Island in the morning and shopping on the way back down. Lots of great things to see and do in Sturgeon Bay. Fine restaurants, including Morning Glory By The Bay which was right around the corner from the house and provided fantastic breakfasts every morning of our stay. We had a great time and would highly recommend this as a place to stay.

Awesome place
We are a family of 4 and we went to Compass cove for Easter. We were fully vaccinated and stepping out for a vacation after more than a year! We had a great time at Compass Cove. The location is great! We walked to the waterfront and ate at the local restaurants. The kids enjoyed the bunk beds and also TV. We will be back in Fall !
