The Blacksmith Inn is a great place by a great lake. The beds are comfortable. The rooms are clean and well-decorated. The in - room hot tubs are wonderful. The views from the rooms are spectacular. The breakfasts are plentiful and delicous. Love the never ending afternoon popcorn bowl. The Blacksmith Inn never disappoints.

On a whim we decided on an overnight in Door County. After a quick Google search and reading the comments here we made a last minute online reservation and hoped for the best. Our last stay at this type of "Inn" was a complete disappointment so we entered without high hopes but WOW! The Blacksmith Inn was more than we... More

My boyfriend and I stayed over Valentines weekend and we were beyond impressed by the cleanliness, hospitality, and decor. I do not think that the pictures they post on their website gives the Inn any justice. It was more beautiful than we imagined. I was very impressed with the cleanliness, the breakfast, and the employees. I was worried as it... More

Surprised my wife with a Valentine's Day weekend here. We didn't want to leave. The coffee, breakfast, and snacks were amazing. Our room (Zahn #7) had a beautiful view of the harbor and the sunrise. After a day outside in negative temperatures it was great to hop in the jacuzzi and turn on the fireplace. Very quiet and cozy. A... More

My wife and I stayed at the inn on a cold, quiet weekend in January. The room (Room 6) was on the third floor, and despite some steep stairs it was perfect. The room is very cozy, as the website suggests. The fireplace was perfect for us, though it is easy to see why the view from your private deck... More

This is our fourth fall foliage visit in eight years. They charge top dollar, but it is totally worth it, if what you are looking for is a quiet, elegant, intimate getaway. The decor and ambiance are authentic early Americana. The rooms are spacious, very clean, and with all high-end conveniences. Every guest wakes up to a beautiful sunrise over... More

This lovely inn reminded us of the cozy and chic B&B's of Colonial Williamsburg or the UK. The rooms were spacious and well appointed. The beds were comfortable, and the ensuite whirlpool was a plus. The staff was always friendly. Breakfast on the terrace, over looking the great lake, was a delight. Popcorn and homemade cookies and lemonade were special... More

If you want to stay where they know your name Blacksmith Inn is the place. They aim to please! Need something, just ask! My room was great, I loved having a bath in the main room, so you can soak by a gas fired fire place with the patio door open so you can here the sound of the water.... More

We came up for a long weekend and started off in a little motel in Ephraim and ended up with a one night stay here. It happened to be the day the rates dropped which was nice. From the minute we arrived to the time we left we loved it. Sam who greeted us upon arrival took us over to... More
