My mom and I stayed here for 3 nights at the end of September. It was amazing! We had never been to the area and they were so helpful with suggestions of places to see, restaurants, etc. The breakfast in the morning was a perfect start to our day.

First trip to Door County. Not sure where to stay. Read reviews on TripAdvisor and this inn was rated really high. Lobby,porches, and grounds were very nice. Owner was very friendly and helpful. I wasn't sure about the room at first glance, seemed to be older and dated. But it was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was cereal and Danishes which... More

It is very clean and tidy. Like that it is just off the highway but tucked back just far enough that you don't have the highway noise. Bed was really comfortable to sleep in. Best Sleep we have had in a while. Prices are very reasonable. Only downside is the Continental Breakfast is very small, but is close to restaurants... More

Owner able to give excellent recommendations for local restaurants, great location. The owner is hands-on, very friendly and welcoming, went out of his way to make our stay comfortable and relaxing. Able to walk to fun restaurants on the bay side. Close to golf course.

Thank you Kimberly! Were glad you enjoyed your stay.

A very nice, family-run inn with many amenities. Clean, well-kept, quiet, and secluded, yet in the center of all that Door Co. has to offer. The accommodations are very affordable, with large motel-style rooms featuring two comfortable queen beds, air conditioning/baseboard heat, cable TV, and WiFi. The place also has a covered outdoor hot tub, a fire pit with gas... More

Thanks David! We really appreciate your positive feedback. With the Inn's location being so centralized yet far enough from the road and surrounded by trees and nature, this was the main reason we were so attracted to this inn. Were so glad you enjoy it for some of those same reasons. We look forward to hosting you again on your... More

There are no major hotel chains in Door County, and that's part of the charm. The Coachlite is one of the many nice, family-run inns that are typical of the area (and even though there are lots of them, they are ALL full during peak season). Our "suite" was meticulously clean but not luxurious. That was fine, since we didn't... More
