We too stayed at Maxwelton Braes over the July 4th weekend and we had plenty of toiletries and were told where to find more if needed via advanced email and a well written sign at the front desk (in the event that there was no one there to assist). Our room was very clean and there were no bugs of... More

I live in town and I love to use this hotel as a mini-getaway and as a place to lodge family and friends when they visit. The staff is very friendly and accommodating and they are really willing to help out guests whenever they can. Even though the desk isn't staffed all the time, someone is usually available by phone.... More

My husband and I booked 4 nights here, last Wednesday through to Sunday. When I made the booking on line I wasn't able to book one of the hotel rooms for all 4 of the nights, but was able to book one of the "cottages." The prices for the hotel rooms and the cottages were the same, so I presumed... More

My husband and I stayed at Maxwelton Braes the week before July 4th. We were pleased that the front staff was friendly, and we liked that the hotel was very quiet with a gorgeous view. With that said, I can say that due to these many small inconveniences, we rate this lodge as mediocre: 1. There were no toiletries in... More

I wish I could say better things about this place, as it is just starting up, but we found it to be terribly run and were quite disappointed. First, the good things: It is quiet, in a good location, and the rooms are comfortable if a bit dated. Now onto the bad. First, they are only staffed from about 10am... More

Thank you for your response, we greatly appreciate any and all input for the future success of the Maxwelton Braes Lodge. Our facility is very large, therefore we are not at the front desk at all times during the day, but we recognize that this is an inconvenience. We have 11 rooms in the lodge, plus 12 rooms in our...

We were visiting Door County and decided to give this place a try based on the Trip Advisor review. We knew it had been closed for a few years and were a little nervous but decided to try it out. Glad we did. The place is thoroughly updated. Rooms are totally renovated and tastefully done. Place is clean and beautifully... More

We made a last minute reservation for Door County and had trouble finding a room. We ended up reserving a room at the newly reopened Maxwelton Braes resort and had a great time. The staff was very friendly, the room was clean, the bed and bedding were new and very comfortable. We arrived at 10:00 pm on a Friday and... More

We've rented cabins in Door Co for 20 years. This past weekend we needed a hotel room and were pleasantly surprised with the re-opening of this historic hotel. The staff could not have been more friendly or hospitable. The rooms were restored, clean with extremely comfortable bedding. The pool was not yet in use. I hope they plan to re-open... More

Visiting Door County July 4th weekend and could not find a room anywhere. At the last minute the Chamber referred us to this property that had just reopened after being closed for years. Although we were skeptical we figured it would be an adventure. Turns out the place was perfect and very reasonably priced. The location near Baileys Harbor was... More
