Having stayed at a different family owned resort with multiple types of lodging in Door County before, our expectations were high. They were greatly surpassed. The grounds are well-manicured but not so much that you felt you couldn't walk across the green grass, play catch, or simply take a short cut. There are a variety of amenities that are no... More

What a GREAT choice for the first time on Door Peninsula! The drive into the property was wide eyed wonder as we approached the Resort. Check in was lovely and we felt welcomed and special with advice on where to go, what to see during our stay. Up the steps, key in the door.... Room 15, beyond expectations. (beautiful decor,...

After reading reviews, we decided to book a motel room at The Shallows. We requested a room facing the water on the lower level. I decided to book directly from their website and the response was very prompt and courteous. Originally we booked for four, but changed that down the line to three with about a months notice. No problems... More

First all of we enjoyed this place. Be careful because there are a few rooms on the non lake side that are cheap on hotels.com. You want to stay on the water side of the hotel. Request upstairs because it is quieter. There are also nice cabins and houses that we heard are great. The hot tub and pool are... More

Never have I stayed in a place with such fantastic water views. I could see water the instant I opened my door and from my bed!!! We left the floor to ceiling extra wide glass doors open all night so we could to listen to the waves.. Our meeting was held in the cabin next door to our room and... More

So, I have cabin fever. It's deep winter in the Chicago metro area - sub zero temps, dangerous wind chill, snow and ice. Do I crave a Caribbean vacation? NO! I just want it to be spring, summer or fall so I can go to The Shallows and wake up to the waves gently breaking on the shore, sunlight glinting... More

We've been going to Door Co for over 25 years and have stayed in many places and types of lodging from Moonlight Bay to Surgeon Bay and by far the best is The Shallows. No, its not cheap but, considering everything, it is the best value. The Beachhouses are just a few yards from the water's edge, you get a... More

My husband and I really enjoyed The Shallows of Egg Harbor. It was our first time in Door County and the location worked out great! We stayed in the Gatehouse which has one bedroom with a king size bed, living room with a fireplace and a full kitchen. The view was good, it is set back from the water which... More

Very disappointing stay for our wedding anniversary. We stayed in the motel-a mistake! Room is dated and carpet smelled strongly from previous guests pets-gross! Useless tiny closet; only a shower, no tub. The heat lamp in the bathroom didn't work.The vinyl baseboards were coming off the wall. Every morning (3 in all) the screened door of the office below our... More

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
