Our room was on the third floor, with a vaulted ceiling, and overlooked the water. The view was spectacular. Our room was spotless, as it has been on every stay here. The staff was friendly and went out of their way to make us feel at home. The granite kitchen was lovely. The full kitchen was well stocked so that... More

We first found out about this gem of accommodation through a local when we were visiting Door County. We've stayed here twice, and will never stay at another place in Door County - this place is the best! Beautiful, peaceful scenery with large rooms and balconies/patios, it's the perfect getaway from crazy, hectic life. Tons of activities for the kids,... More

Yes it's a lovely setting, almost like a postcard, and clean, but depending on the room you get you should know there will be issues. There are some things they don't tell you when you're making a reservation here. They advertise having internet available in all suites, yet it was too weak and unreliable to be useable in our room.... More

I want to thank the health professional for his positive comments about the beauty and cleanliness of the Bay Shore Inn. We strive to provide a positive experience for all guests and many guests hate to leave and are anxious to return for future visits. Unfortunately the natural landscape that makes Door County beautiful also creates challenges for the cellphone... More

This is the fourth time I have stayed with Bay Shore, and every time I go back, I realize why I would never stay any where else in Door County! First and foremost, such a clean place, always. My first memories were when I celebrated my bachelorette party here in 2010. They maintain the property beautifully! These suites are all... More

The Inn was incredibly clean and has a fantastic location. It is located a couple of miles out of town but doesn't take you long to get anywhere. Spacious rooms and lovely grounds. We would most definitely stay here again!!

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
