We stayed here one night. Price was reasonable for Door County. Friendly staff. The pool and whirlpool were nice and have many windows looking out on property. It was cold when we were there so did not get to enjoy the very spacious back yard property or trails. It looks like it would be great for families and kids that... More

First floor room. Quiet and clean. They were seal coating the drive way during our stay which made parking interesting, but not a issue. Nice breakfast room. Didn't use the pool but it looked great. Nice staff. Would recommend and stay again.

We have been going to Door County for more than 20 years, and have stayed at six or seven different places on family vacations. All of the other places were fine, but this is by far our new favorite after a two-night stay last week with our college-age daughters. The lodge is clean, friendly and charming. It has the feel...

We have stayed in many hotels/ motels/ lodges over the years that we have gone to Door County Wisconsin. We had never stayed at the Open Hearth Lodge in Sister Bay, but from now on this is the only place we will stay. Hosts are very friendly and accommodating, rooms are clean and big. We were in the new part... More

Open Hearth Lodge is our favorite place to stay in Door County. The owners are EXTREMELY friendly and helpful with suggestions of things to do, restaurants to eat at, and places to see. Our two-queen room was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. It was equipped with a mini-fridge, and there is a microwave oven downstairs in the... More

The owners are helpful and friendly with a desire to always improve. They have just put an addition on. The rooms are well appointed, clean and a great value. They are located close to a number of great places to dine in Sister Bay. I have stayed here several times and would definitely return!

This hotel is wonderfully maintained. It is clean and up to date. There is a pool and hot tub which are clean but do not suffocate you with chlorine smells. The complimentary breakfast is very basic but has enough to get you started on your day: boiled eggs, pastries, toast & english muffins, coffee & juice. The only problem we... More

This is a beautiful place, comfortable, relaxing, clean, reasonable price. The staff were kind and accommodating. We celebrated our anniversary here and it was perfect. This is also very conveniently located to so many things to do and the owners gave us lots of information to get us started. We will definitely be back!

The price is appropriate for as nice as the place is. The lodge is located just a few minutes drive from the lake. The only negative is that you can still hear the people clearly in the hallway with your hotel door room shut. The pool and hot tub were clean and good sized. The bed was excellent! It has... More
