Making a Reservation

Lundquist Realty & Vacation Rentals of Door County, LLC does not take on-line reservations.
We do post a calendar for each property on the website, which does show up to date availability. These homes are entrusted to us by the owners and we strive to give you that personal experience. We want to speak or email with you to understand and help find you the right property for your family vacation! This is why we book with a personal touch and not online. Each property is unique and we want to help you know what you are renting!

We require weekly rentals during the prime summer months, and will do 3 nights on the shoulder season (this may exclude holidays and festivals).

Do I need to bring bedding?

Lundquist Realty & Vacation Rentals of Door County, LLC currently manages the property reservations and cleaning services for each rental property.  Most of the rental properties keep your costs down by having the renter supply their own sheet sets and towels (bath/kitchen/beach).  Washer & dryers are offered in most of the rentals, so one only needs to bring minimal towels.  For an additional fee, you may rent linens when necessary.

Can I bring my pets?

Why a no pet and no smoking policy at most Door County Rental Properties?

To provide as allergy-free of an environment as possible for future renters.

Several homes will allow one family dog.. Visit “Rent” and Search to find rentals that allow pets. Special instructions and fees apply. ($25day/$150week) plus tax. No exceptions on other types of pets. 

What happens to my Damage Deposit?

Security deposits are required to be held via a credit card within our secure reservation system.  You may call with any problems.  We appreciate renters using care, but do let us know if damage occurs so that we can work with you to remedy the issue without charging your credit card.  We also have a “Remove Soiled SHOES” policy in all properties due to increase in dirt and soil being tracked in and renters paying for carpet cleanings! Please be respectful and treat our properties just as you would treat your own home. Thank you!

What are Renters additional responsibilities?

Responsibilities at our rentals vary as much as the properties themselves. Possible responsibilities are:

  • Follow Garbage recycling and disposal instructions.
  • Properties with holding tanks will require renters to monitor “tank full light” daily and to notify Lundquist Realty at (920) 854-2368 if light turns on.

Supplies to bring:   Extra kitchen garbage bags, small supply of dishwasher & dish soap, coffee filters, your own special spices, extra toilet paper, and your own toiletries.  Sheets and towels unless you have arranged to rent them or they are included at the property.

How is a rental payment made?

Personal check, money order, cash and credit card are all accepted. There will be a 3% service fee on all credit card transactions.  A 50% deposit is required at the time reservation and the balance must be paid 2 weeks prior to rental date.  All stays under 30 days have an added 13.5% – 14% tax. We do also need a credit card on hold as your damage deposit. 

 

 

Can I have "guests" stay with us?

Each property has a “maximum guest” limit that is not to be exceeded.  We don’t want extra wear and tear on our homes and appreciate your help with this!

What happens if the power goes out?

Rest assure that the power WILL return.  Lundquist Realty alerts Wisconsin Public Service of an outage and they are quick to restore service.  An occasional storm might cause a temporary outage so try to enjoy the adventure.

How soon can I place my reservation for next year’s rental?

We usually know our owner’s occupied dates by the beginning of January. Properties not occupied by owners, can be reserved a year in advance. Current renters have the first opportunity to re-book their current rental week(s) for next year before the conclusion of their current stay.  If current renters do not re-book, those dates are opened to the general public.

What if I need to cancel my reservation?

In the event you must cancel your reservation, your deposit will be refunded if the rental property is re-rented for your specified dates.  In the event we are unable to re-rent, your deposit will not be refunded.  However, we do our best to work with your circumstances.

Please check your arrival and departure dates carefully.  You will be charged for the full number of nights you have reserved.  Unfortunately, we are unable to give refunds on early departures.
