Periodically we’ll feature one of our properties here to let our readers know about some great gay friendly places to stay:
The Reynolds House is a small quaint European-style bed and breakfast that offers all the amenities the American traveller desires.
We have five tastefully appointed bedrooms all with queen beds and ensuite bathrooms:
- The Dragonfly Suite is on the first floor, is dog friendly and has its own private entrance.
- There are three rooms on the second floor with their differences being in the bathrooms – one has a huge 115 year old claw foot and separate walk-in shower, one has a jacuzzi tub, and the third has just a walk-in shower.
- The fifth room (Milky Way Suite)is on the third floor and consists of three rooms (the servants occupied these rooms until 1906 when the Reynolds Family had the adjacent house built just for the servants).
Breakfasts are served in the Victorian style – at a specified time with only one seating, and at a large banquet table in the oak paneled dining room or on the front porch. Breakfasts have become a “Great Gathering” for creating new memories, sharing experiences and learning about our neighbors from down the road and across the world.
The Reynolds Family was the first family in Door County to grow, harvest and market the Montemorency cherries, now the premier cherry of Door County.
The interior of the home reflects a forward thinking family, depicted in the Oak paneling, oak fireplaces and maple floors. The craftsmanship in the woodwork, ceramic tiles and limestone columns all predate the Arts and Crafts Movement, suggesting the family was ahead of their time when it came to 1900 residential architecture.
The home exudes warmth and comfort in every corner, whether it be on the front porch with its over-sized swing and wicker furniture, or in the circular sunroom with its ever blooming flowers and plants, or the peacefulness found in a good book from the reading nook/library.
