From the get-go the staff was extremely friendly. Our room felt like home right away. The bed felt like heaven and the whirlpool tub had a reasonable size compared to other hotels we've stayed at. A couple of the unexpected add-on's were free bicycle rentals, free kayak rentals, and freshly made cookies each day which went well with the coffee... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 days the end of April. Just before the season in Door County really got going. This Inn was wonderful, we couldn't have asked for more. We stayed in room 13 of the Harbor House. Gas fireplace - balcony with a hammock - Jacuzzi tub - king bed - it was great. The... More

My husband and I stayed here for a long weekend getaway. The rooms are gorgeous (we stayed in Zahn Room 1). The service was excellent. The hotel is conveniently located so that most of the activities we wanted to do did not take more than 10-15 minutes by car to get to. They also have bikes available and if it... More

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
