We have stayed here multiple times over the years. When we go as a couple we get a smaller suite. With relatives, LOVE the larger end suites with two bedrooms and larger living areas and decks. Sometimes we request certain rooms if available. ALL have kitchens so you can save on eating out if you like. We love to cook... More

We stayed for 4 nights in June. We stayed in the south building. The condo had everything we needed and we felt like we were at home. All the staff was very nice. Location of resort was perfect on the bay and just outside of sturgeon bay. Used the kayaks and enjoyed watching an amazing sunset over the bay. Would... More

Great view of the water! Nice rooms and very nice staff. We stayed on the second floor in one of the rooms that overlooks the bay. We had a small deck to sit on with two chairs. It was a little chilly for outside setting.

We just got back from two nights at this inn and cannot say enough good things about the place or the staff. Ed and Mary were both super accommodating and sweet, and all the staff seemed friendly. The place was impeccable but the view. Oh man the view. We stayed in a Supreme suite on the first floor (101) with... More

We stayed at one of the rooms that overlooks the bay. We had a nice big deck to sit on with plenty of chairs. It was a little chilly for breakfast (it was still early June) but the sunsets were amazing! Our place was spacious, clean and comfortable. There were paddleboats we could use, DVDs we could borrow, bikes to... More

We had a great stay at the Bay Shore Inn. We had a fabulous room with a great view of the bay (room 101). There were free paddleboat rentals and we even had a great time playing tennis on the close by tennis courts and swimming in the pool. We stayed from Tuesday through Friday morning. On Thursday, we came... More

First I want to say that I take full responsibility for placing the wedding gift bag in a unit a day early. I am pleased the guests had a great stay. This incident could have been cleared up on Thursday with a call to the front desk. When we were unable to locate the missing gift bag mentioned earlier, the... More

Rooms are spacious and have great water views with balconies on each. Many complimentary activities that are great for a relaxing getaway. Front desk staff was amazing and very helpful. We would stay here again without looking else where.

We have stayed at the Bay Shore Inn four times in the last six years, and we never think about staying anywhere else in Door County. The property is right on the water and extremely well-maintained, with continuous updating. You'll find fully-equipped modern kitchens, large jetted tubs, water views, individual decks and/or balconies, fire-building supplies always ready by the bay,... More

We've been coming to the Bay Shore Inn for in excess of 10 years and stayed in many of the different rooms and suites. It's located right outside of Sturgeon Bay, so you have access to the "big city" grocery store and other stores and shops in Sturgeon Bay, and a 25 minute drive to Egg Harbor. It's lovely to...
