Making a Reservation

Let us talk you through the process

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

We Prefer weekly rentals during the prime 9 weeks, mid June to Mid August, and will do 3 night on the shoulder season excluding 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/kitchen/beach.  Washer & dryers are offered in “most” of the rentals so one only needs to bring minimal towels.  For an additional fee ($75-$150) 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.

What happens to my Damage Deposit?

Security deposits will be destroyed within one week of checkout if cleaning service inspection shows the property to be left in good condition. Please also let us know if damage happens,  You may call with any problems and appreciate renters using care.  We also now 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! 

Am I responsible for cleaning our Rental prior to check out?

Upon your 10AM check-out, please, be sure all of the items below have been addressed. These are privately owned homes, deserving of your tender, loving, care. We hope you have enjoyed your stay. If you have any feedback or concerns, please contact us at (920)854-2368 and if you enjoyed your stay please leave a REVIEW!

 If your rental has a Holding tank light, be sure to check this light daily and contact Lundquist Realty if it goes on.
 Be sure to put Trash & Recycling in appropriate outside containers or follow specified instructions.
 Please leave enough time to be sure that the Dishes are done and put away.
 If you have rented (at an extra fee with Lundquist Realty) any sheets, towels, or have soiled items, please start the first load of laundry (2nd if able). Return finished items to property containers. Again, leave a note for the cleaners.
***Separate COLORS from whites to prevent stains***

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:   A few kitchen garbage bags, small supply of dishwasher & dish soap, coffee filters, your own special spices, extra toilet paper, and own toiletries.  Sheets and towels unless you have arranged to rent them.

How is a rental payment made?

Personal check, money order, cash is accepted. Because we do not want to pass on the 4% fee and because all payments are handled within a trust account, we do not accept credit cards. A 50% deposit is required at the time reservation is made with the balance paid 2 weeks prior to rental date.  All stays under 30 days have an added 11% tax. An additional check for $200-$750 is collected also for the damage deposit which will be destroyed once we get the cleaners reports. 

(We are happy to set up a payment plan with you if needed)


Can I have "guests" stay with us?

Each property has a “maximum guest” limit so we appreciate that you do not exceed this.  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.  We are happy to add you to our waiting list also!
