Hink’s Up North

· 3 bedrooms · 2.5 bathrooms · 2800 sq ft

Welcome to our vacation home!

Our terrific mom, Linda, bought this property in the mid-90’s as a “get-a-way” second home. Through the years, she made many great memories with family and friends. However, the only thing that is constant is change, and after nearly 25 years of ownership, it was time to make a change. She had some difficult decisions to make and decided that it was best to sell the property. As we gathered for one last long weekend to reminisce over years of great memories, it became clear that we weren’t quite ready to give it up just yet. We all agreed that the siblings, Lauren and Brent, would jump in and turn it into a rental property that others could enjoy as we have allowing us to keep it in the family until we are ready to make a different decision.

Tucked privately back into a pine and cedar forest, a paved driveway leads you to a charming home surrounded by beautiful landscaping and the sounds of birds that welcomes you in. The location is ideal for a relaxing getaway — across the street from Lake Michigan shore and a 15-minute walk to Cave Point County and Whitefish Dunes State Parks — great for watching morning sunrises or for taking tranquil hikes.

The screened porch may just be your favorite fair weather place! Skylights bring in light from above, and the view of the backyard garden. Great for reading books, socializing or just quietly meditating. There are two other outdoor seating areas which can be used as well.

The master suite (King Bed) is a large area with sliding glass doors to both the front and back decks. The master bath has a tiled floor, tiled walk-in shower with seating and dual vanities. If you must work, you’ll find a connecting work area with a large amount of counter space. Additionally, a side room has a modern, front-loading washer/dryer and plenty of space to sort and fold clothes.

Upstairs you will find two nicely sized bedrooms (1 Queen, 1 King ), each with a skylight. The bonus space is a lounge area (4 Twin Beds) which can also be used as a respite from the rest of the house. A bathroom with shower is situated between the two bedrooms. We sleep 10 guests firm.

On those warmer days, there are nine ceiling fans across the family room, each bedroom, bonus,and indoor porches. Or, you can turn on the central air conditioning. For those colder days, you can take the edge off by lighting the floor to ceiling stone, gas fireplace or just turn on the zoned heating. Finally, there’s an outdoor shower so popular in Door County for those who would enjoy a closer connection to nature.

High speed Starlink satellite internet (50-100mbps) is available. Can stream for TV.  A propane grill is provided. A water circulating system provides quick hot water to all locations. In the rare event of a power outage, a completely automated generator will quickly provide power to the entire house!

****All new kitchen appliances for 2022!

****Schauer Park just steps away.  Great place to put your kayak in.

****Clark Lake Beach nearby with sand beach and shallow swimming area.

****Shared Water access with 5 other properties is located across the road from the rental. Must stay on path at all times. The shore is a rock shore frontage and you can use at your own risk.  Rocks can become slippery when wet. Do not go on neighbors rocks in the water or on shore.  The access is only 5 feet wide. Schauer Park and Cave Point are very close by.

  1. Family 4th of July weekend at Hink's

    We had a wonderful family weekend at Hink’s! The home is in an ideal location which is a short walk to the shore of Lake Michigan and parks. The home is beautifully decorated and the amenities and furnishings are exceptional! The rooms are spacious and the layout of the home is perfect for families or friends! We loved the huge screened in porch, where we spent alot of time with meals, games and reading. We would recommend Hink’s as a vacation getaway and plan to get back again!

  2. Awesome getaway at Hink’s

    We had a wonderful 4th of July weekend with family at Hink’s! The location was perfect – a short walk to Lake Michigan shoreline and parks! The amenities and furnishings in the home were exceptional and the rooms were spacious! We loved the back screened in porch and spent a lot of time in there with dinners, games and reading. We also enjoyed the fire pit in the front of the house. Everything was ready for us when we arrived and very clean! We would recommend Hink’s as a great vacation rental and plan to return in the future! Thanks Hink’s!

  3. Hi J R Rentals,

    I rented a cottage through your company last summer and I had an excellent experience that I would like to share, but I can’t find a place to write the comment so I am sending it to you.

    J R Vacation Rentals Comment

    5 stars: It is time to start planning your next vacation and I would highly recommend calling J&R Rentals to save time and get off to a great start. Working with J R I found them to be well organized, strong communicators who followed up in a timely manner and willing to go that extra mile when special requests were made. I fully trust them and will be calling them again soon when I plan our next family vacation. I am so glad I called them.

    Again thank you for helping me share a wonderful summer vacation with my family.

  4. Wonderful

    We had a great stay at the house. It was better than advertised.

  5. We stayed at Hink’s for 4th of July 2020 and I just booked a stay for July 2021. My family of 5 absolutely loved the house and grounds. The screened in back porch was a favorite place to relax and unwind. The house of clean and well appointed. My teenage boys loved walking down to Cave Point every morning. We cannot wait to return in July.

  6. Beautiful house and property

    The property is beautiful – clean, kept up, nicely furnished, kitchen well-equipped. If you aren’t from the area, please be aware that the water access and Cave Point are not parks for children – the cliffs and water are dangerous. The house wasn’t a problem with 2-3 year olds, but the closest park for slides/swings is in town. (nice park though). There isn’t a bath tub so we used the tubs outside that we had transported food in for bathtime and brought our own kiddy pool for playtime. The house is every bit as wonderful as the pictures and we did have a wonderful time.

  7. Outstanding Property

    Just wanted to thank you for the wonderful time we had at your vacation rental property. I want you to know I would rate it a five in all areas! The decor was just beautiful! Everywhere we looked was something so unique! The back screen porch was a lovely place to sit, have coffee, visit and enjoy the outdoors without really being outside! We loved the fire pit and that deck. It was such a surprise that we were only about 1/2 mile from the Cave Point park entrance. Such amazing views! I would definitely choose to rent from JR vacation rentals again. Staff was always prompt in getting back to me with questions I had as well as giving us excellent ideas of things to do in Door County while we were visiting. You made everything very easy from picking up the keys, to putting them back in the slot when we checked out. Thanks for the amazing get away!
