Stayed her again in June 3rd thru the 7th. I can't say enough about the location and accommodations. Lovely rooms with fabulous views! We stayed in the Zahn House (there are two buildings on the property) and I don't believe I would stay anywhere else in Door County. The Inn keepers are friendly and so very helpful. They offer a...

Everything is amazing about the Blacksmith Inn; it's like something out of a dream or a movie. The ambience of exterior of the grounds is breath taking. From the old blacksmith building, to the gardens, to the amazing pier on the lake. The interior of the rooms have such a country, quaint feel to them. We had a first floor... More

My husband and I have stayed at many bed and breakfasts thru out the country, so we had high expectations to stay at this inn. It was very highly rated. We were looking forward to the peace and quiet by the lake that the website portrayed. The inn is clean and quiet on the inside. However, if you want peace... More

We are very sorry to hear that this couple was disappointed in their stay with us. While many of our guests find their experience to be “quiet and peaceful”, we understand that this is subjective. For the past year, we have experienced a significant amount of traffic due to our neighbor’s construction project. The good news is the project was... More

We very much enjoyed our stay at Blacksmith Inn on the Shore. The staff at the B&B were very friendly and accommodating. We stayed in Room 2, which made good use of the space with a nice whirlpool tub and a separate sitting area. The Inn also has an amazing DVD collection. The one thing keeping it from getting a...

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
