We had a great experience at this little hotel even though we only stayed one night. It was just your basic room and nothing special, but it was clean and smelled fresh. There was homemade apple cider in the little breakfast area along with coffee and several snacks. The older woman working at the desk was a delight to deal... More

Wow. It's been a week or so since my one night stay at the Open Hearth Lodge. I'm still trying to get my head around it. November is off-season for Door County which is one reason it's a nice time to visit but it can be difficult to find restaurants open during the week. I chose Open Hearth Lodge with... More

Hi Rebecca I am sorry for any confusion about the package. The package was for those who go to our website, then call & book directly with us requesting the package with special pricing. I set this up with the Trip Advisor rep. I feel it is difficult to sort out when the big box with Booking, Expedia Hotels etc... More

Stayed 3 nights. Good location. Was clean, nothing broken in rooms and well kept. Will need updating in the next few years. Staff was friendly and prompt. Parking fine. No issues. Would stay here again if up here.

Owners were gracious and the grounds were lovely. Room was spa ious with a comfortable king bed and convenient bedside clock/charging station. The very well-maintained indoor pool and spa were enjoyable and appreciated, but they faded my bathing suit that had survived 15 other pools after just two visits. WI-FI was spotty in our room. Continental breakfast included hard-boiled eggs,but... More

We had a very nice quiet stay here. Clean. Comfortable. Inviting. Quiet. Nice continental breakfast to start each day. Centrally located making this our only hotel. Well kept. Family owned and operated. We would stay here again and recommend to anyone. Door County coffee always at hand with special flavor each day.

This lodge is well situated just on the outskirts of sister bay. Our room was large with a very comfortable bed. We had a fridge in the room. The bathroom was spacious and there were nice toiletries. The complimentary breakfast was a lovely surprise. There was juice, coffee, muffins and eggs, plentiful and delicious. What a pity though that as... More

We stayed 3 nights here. Our room was across from the coffee area. They serve coffee or tea all day. Breakfast was donuts, danish rolls, cereal, juice. It was enough to keep us going. They have a lending library in case you forgot your book. The pool and spa looked nice but we did not use it. The grounds have... More

The reasonable rates lured us to the Open Heart Lodge and we were pleasantly surprised at the value we received for the money. Our room was recently re-decorated and was clean and comfortable with good beds and a super comfortable recliner I quickly settled into to enjoy a good book! The shower was exceptionally enjoyable even though the bathroom space... More
