We've been coming to The Shallows Resort since I was born 21 years ago (my parents had been coming many years before my birth). Originally, we had a motel room. We upgraded about 18 years ago to the Gatehouse, and upgraded again this year to the Beachhouse. Every year, we are BLOWN AWAY by the wonderful hospitality given by Bob... More

We stayed in a Gatehouse room that had a separate bedroom and full kitchen. The room was clean and modern. I slept well every night, and I never can sleep in hotels! A very short walk down a path surrounded by beautiful flowers, was the pool and then Horseshoe Bay. Kayaks were available to use, as were bikes. My family... More

My family of 4 stayed in the Gatehouse at The Shallows. It was very clean, had enough room for all of us, and was decorated perfectly to feel like you're in Door County! The amenities were also great (had boats, bikes, tennis courts and a heated outdoor pool) and the staff was friendly and helpful. We brought breakfast food even... More

Our extended family stayed in two rooms at the Shallows and had a great time. A very nice location especially for the wonderful sunsets. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was limited but the cinnamon buns were great. The hotel itself is like much of the area, older but they maintain it to a very high level.... More

The Shallows is a beautifully landscaped and well-maintained resort property. Located directly on the water, you'll have a wide variety of water activities you can take advantage of, free of charge...whether it's boating, canoeing, or kayaking. You'll want to take advantage of the tennis courts to work off the delicious frosted cinnamon rolls available each morning in the enclosed Gathering... More

Having never visited Door County before, we had been warned to lower our expectations. We did, but we were pleasantly surprised by the Shallows. Easy to find with a GPS and relaxing from the second you drive down the pathway to the main building to check-in. The family that runs the resort is super friendly and gives you a decent... More

This resort is located directly on the water with unbeatable views. It is clean, quiet and pet friendly. We were greeted warmly and made to feel immediately welcomed. In the evening you can sit by one of two fire pits right next to the waters edge and watch the gorgeous sunset! I look forward to a return visit.

Every August, my extended family and I spend a week in Door County. The Shallows remains our hotel of choice. Although a bit dated, its facilities are clean, beds comfortable, and bikes readily available. I should add that the establishment's view of the water is stunning, especially when with family/friends around a roaring fire at sunset. P.S. If you love... More

Having visited Door County Wisconsin a dozen or more times over the last 20 years, our trips there had always involved camping at a nearby campground. Given the so-so weather forecast for our visit, we decided to ditch the camping and find a resort. Excellent decision! After a couple of contacts with places that did not accept 4-legged guests, we... More

The Shallows is in a great quiet location south of Egg harbor. Rooms were very clean, but a little on the need for upgrading side. Breakfast cinnamon rolls were very good. Nice view of the lake when you go to the beach area.
