My husband and I had a long weekend to escape to Door County. Decided to try Maxwelton Braes. Wow!!! The room in the lodge was beautifully clean and very comfortable. The manager Laura, could not have been more helpful and gave us great ideas for things to do during our short stay. We played a round of golf on Saturday... More

We love the lodge rooms, the bar, up dining, down dining, and the golf. We rec'd a discount on golf so the cost was very reasonable. The golf is never rushed, which is important to us. The service everywhere on the resort was good. We did not have a fridge in our room, so asked for one, and got it... More

This is our second stay at Maxwelton Braes. The rooms are lovely; the surroundings are peaceful, green & gorgeous; the staff is very friendly & accommodating. Both restaurants are terrific. Great sense of history...many photos of the resort from back in the day...

I stayed there and it was during a slow time so I was the only one there. Very quiet and peaceful. If you are looking for a possible ghost experience than this is your place. Heard foot steps and other noises during my stay. Per the employees they feel Mr. Henry is still there. Not scary at all.

The Lodge and room were nice, but the Internet only works on the lounge, not in your room. In this day and age that is a deficiency. They also staff the desk during limited periods. I left my room a little after 8:00 each morning and never saw anyone at the front desk. The location is very nice, in the... More

First of all, I want to thank you for your feedback. As owners, it is of utmost important to get feedback in order to make Maxwelton Braes Lodge the great historic lodge getaway it is meant to be.

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."
