My family has stayed at Open Hearth Lodge numerous times since it was built about 25 year ago. Since our last visit was about 8 years ago, I was a little unsure as to what the condition of the lodge would be. We were pleasantly surprised at how well it has been maintained. It looks like it was just built... More

Liz was friendly and efficient when checking us in. We really enjoyed the home like atmosphere and had a comfortable stay. We had our dog with, and they had a side entrance to bring him in, plus a large area to walk him in. The pool was nice and clean and WARM!!! The room was very clean and so was... More

Being the city boy that I am, I had massive expectations for the #1 hotel on Trip Advisor in Sister Bay, WI. It was certainly not anything that I had been expecting, but once I adjusted my expectations to where I was, I realized how nice of a place this really is. Tucked away in Sister Bay, WI, right across... More

Ann - We are sorry you were disappointed in your room. The room is smaller but has all the amenities of the other Whirlpool Room, the refrigerator, coffee maker, microwave, flat screen TV, DVD player. I don't know if you reviewed your receipt but you were only charged the amount of a Regular room, not the rate of $129 for... More

I wasn't sure what to expect for my visit to Door County last weekend. It was Memorial Day weekend and I figured all the good places may already be reserved. I was so fortunate to find Open Hearth Lodge! The prices were very reasonable, the room was cheery (love the bright striped cotton blanket on the beds!) and clean. The... More

This hotel was very clean. The staff were friendly, and helpful. Many updates. Beautiful view for the continental breakfast. The selection wasn't huge, but did the trick for a busy stay in Door County. Will definitely stay here again!!

My husband and I needed to take a long weekend as a break from the unrelenting Wisconsin winter this year that kept us in the house day and night. The Open Hearth Lodge was a relaxing and welcoming place that met all our needs. We took our dog with us and they were very accommodating, the staff always friendly and... More

We came for a weekend getaway at the end of April - right before Door County's rush season. It was easy to get the room we wanted, for the less expensive off season rate. Everything was lovely. Very clean, staff was very friendly, accommodations were lovely. There is a pool and hot tub that we ran out of time before... More

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.
