If you are looking for a retreat that's a home away from home this is the place for you. If you enjoy a stroll along a wooded path and the scenic views of a sunrise or sunset over Kangaroo Lake this is the perfect getaway spot. We especially love coming to this resort during the off season to take in... More

We love the Rushes. Everything is clean and in tiptop shape when we arrive. Any maintenenance issues (rare) are handles quickly and courteously. No one calls to bug us about buying a unit (a major irritant and something we dread at other properties.) We know when we spend time there it will be relaxing and as quiet as we like.... More

This is the BEST trade we have ever made through RCI. COMFORTABLE ACCOMMODATIONS HIDDEN IN THE WOODS. When we went to a get-acquainted evening, we had a list of all the guests. Most were from the midwest and had 3-5 weeks there every year. I was amazed that one other newcomer said he had been trying to come for 18... More

We love it here! Friendly workers. Family friendly environment. Lots to do anytime of year. They always correct anything wrong with the unit. Young or old will enjoy and find plenty to do. Make sure you try the wine and cheese on Monday night.

We bought our first timeshare around 1992. We now own 3 and use them frequently. The Rushes ranks high in our favorites. Immaculate, spacious, very well equipped kitchen, love the woodburning fireplace...the list could go on and on. And Door County put on it's best colors for us this week. It's nice that it is just the beginning of our... More

We have been owners at The Rushes since 1987 and we have never been disappointed. The resort is on a nature reserve with walking/skiing trails. The condos are laid out perfectly to make you feel like you have your own space. 24 buildings (48 total condos) about half that hug Kangaroo Lake the rest nestled in the woods. The units... More

My favorite place to stay in Door County, summer or winter or fall or spring. Peaceful and quiet, serene and beautiful. Tucked away, but close to everything that Door offers. Lots to do, no hidden fees or charges.

After about ten years, we outgrew primitive tent camping, then tried other resorts with prohibitively high prices which increased every year, limiting our length of stay. We heard about The Rushes, made a visit and it easily sold itself for our needs. Two back-to-back weeks in the same unit in the late summer gives us a delightful recharge and an... More
