I generally only write reviews for one of two reasons, a really bad experience or a really great experience. I was blown away by the Open Hearth Lodge in Sister Bay, WI. The website looked good and the prices were fantastic, so we decided to stay here for the weekend. The room was modern, super clean, comfortable, and had everything... More

Was there this past weekend for a family weekend getaway and had an awesome time! The hosts John and Nora were very welcoming along with their staff. All of our families rooms were ready to go when we arrived and the hot tub in our room was very relaxing! We also loved relaxing in front of the fireplace with our... More

This little hotel is fabulous especially when you consider the price for a room in Door County. Everything was super clean. The pool and hot tub area did not smell of chemicals---a real plus to me! Breakfast included hard-boiled eggs, again, more than I had expected. And to top it off, no matter what staff member we talked to, all... More

John and Nora run a 1st class Lodge/hotel. I've traveled extensively in my 68 yrs. and I've seldom found people/owners with more friendly, but professional style. Immaculate room and guest facilities. The whirlpool was a special delight for me--and was absolutely sparkling clean. Having done bacteriology work in my career, I am very careful about pools etc. The entire pool/whirlpool... More

For the price, it was much nicer than we expected. Looking for a bed for the night but now wish we had more time to enjoy pool and hot tub. Fireplace/sitting area in lobby cozy. Not much for breakfast other than usual simple things but one should not expect much for continental breakfast. Bed was VERY comfortable and room had... More

We rented a 2 bedroom suite which was very reasonably priced. The beds were comfortable and the lodge was quiet. There was a bus group also staying at the lodge while we were there and it never got loud or seemed overcrowded. Our main concern (which is our fault not the lodges) is that we were not aware that the... More

We had stayed here once before and had a nice room on second floor and were very pleased with our stay. This stay we were on first floor and what a difference in rooms. The one on first floor was dingy and spartan. The bathroom was so small that you had to turn sideways to shut the door. The breakfast... More

We got a 2 queen room suite and it was very reasonable. The room was nice and clean. There is an indoor pool and hot tub and the place is situated in a nice countryside setting. There is a nice patio and picnic area and you are within 5 minutes of downtown Sister Bay. They have a nice little breakfast... More

We stayed one night at the Open Hearth as we were touring around the lakes. The room was comfortable and clean and the breakfast was great to get the day going (muffins, cereal, doughnuts etc). What really made the place great was the warmth and friendliness of the owners. I'd definitely recommend you stay here if you are in the... More

The rooms are very nice. My husband and I have visited the Open Hearth Lodge a couple of times now. We've found it to be a great place to relax and enjoy the beauty of Door County. The location is great, close to most everything. We enjoyed the pool very much. The staff is always very helpful and considerate. We... More
