“Another great stay, with the dogs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013 via mobile

Can't say enough about this place. It is dog friendly so that is why we stayed the first time. But, it was such a find!
The free breakfast is very nice, we all enjoyed it. There is a lovely walking trail down to the lake. The view from the deck is gorgeous . And it is close to our favorite stores and places we like to eat. Don't hesitate to stay here, it is a keeper.

Stayed June 2013, traveled as a couple

The Country House is in a beautiful setting in Sister Bay. The views of the bay are gorgeous, and the location is superb. Within minutes we were able to go kayaking, kayaking, golfing and bicycling. It is close to town and some nice restaurants. THe pool was clean and beautiful and the hot tub at the end of an active day was welcoming. The staff was helpful and welcoming as well.

The one negative, which is a big negative is the fact that the bed was way too soft and overdue for being replaced; which caused both my wife and I to have sore backs after 3 nights. The room was also a little small.

Overall I really enjoyed staying here. I think the pricing is great and the front desk staff was friendly and helpful. The property is pretty. Though we had to drive about 30 min getting to our destinations (outside of sister bay), like wineries and restaurants we wanted to try, I would stay here again. The bedding and pillows were exceptional ( I really mean it, best sheets and pillows I've ever had at a resort), and overall the resort was quite. I've never slept so well in a hotel on vacation ( and this was memorial day weekend which I'm sure was super busy for this resort). There were not however many channels on the TV to watch, and the ice machine wasn't working on the day that we were leaving. Those afternoon cookies were yummy, but in short supply, as I'm sure everyone caught on to how awesome they were. Coffee, tea, and hot chocolate available during the day was a huge hit and something we took advantage of. I would absolutely stay here again, it was worth every penny.

Room Tip: Get a room with a view of the lake, it's so nice to wake up and see the beauty of nature.

Green Features: Excellent job! Recycling throughout the hotel and in your room. They also conserve water by only washing bedding on request, there's a note card you leave on the bed to let them know you want your sheets changed.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review of our property. We greatly appreciate your feed back and are so pleased that you found your stay enjoyable and the bedding so comfortable, and that you were able to return from your visit well rested.

I apologize that we were out of ice when you checked out. After you mentioned it to the front desk, we immediately checked the machine and found it to be functioning properly. Unfortunately, as you mentioned, it was a very busy weekend and guests filling coolers had depleted our supply. I am also very sorry that our cable TV line up did not include the NBC Sports channel with the NHL game. Our current service includes 50 channels but we are actually in the process of researching new options and will definitely take your concern into consideration. I hope you were able to enjoy the game at one of the bar/restaurants we recommended that were carrying the game.

We certainly hope that your travels bring you back to Door County soon and look forward to seeing you again.

To assist others with perspective on our location: The Door County Peninsula is approx. 42 mi. long from the northern tip at Gills Rock south to Sturgeon Bay. The Country House is located 10 mi south of Gills Rock or about 15 north of Egg Harbor. We are rather centrally located for many of the most popular areas to visit in Door County.

We made the trip up from Iowa to spend a long weekend in Door County. We booked the trip 6 months in advance and were anxiously awaiting the trip to begin. When we got to the Country House Resort, we were immediately swallowed up by its mixture of charm, class, quiet living, and plenty to do right at the resort (not to mention being minutes from downtown).

What to do? They offer bikes for free use, have trails that go down to the water and along the shoreline. There is a really nice whirlpool and a heated pool. Plenty of chairs set out to sit and enjoy the view of the bay. A shuffle board 'court' and beautiful gardens to look at.

The rooms? The rooms are beautiful. We walked in the front door (room 110) and the first thing we saw was our view out the sliding back door of the bay. The beds are huge, comfortable, and have really nice pillows. Nice LG flat panel TV's, a refrigerator, nice bathroom, and a nice table and closet to put stuff.

Main lobby & offerings - There is a 24 hour coffee 'bar' with really good coffee or hot water for tea. The breakfast was fantastic. If you can't find enough food to fill up (oh by the way, it's included), you're way too picky. There were free daily newspapers, books to read, and even puzzles and board games if you got stuck in for the day for any reason.

We likely won't visit Door County every year because we travel all over the country, but when we do go back, there is NO doubt we'll be back here.

Room Tip: Pay the couple extra dollars for a water view, it's worth it!

Green Features: I loved seeing the environmentally consciousness of the hotel. Had separate receptacles for paper, garbage and other recyclables. Even the soaps and things were 'green.' Love to see this as a bonus add on.

We spent a long weekend in Door County and stayed in a queen lakeview room. The view was fantastic! The surrounding land was great. Nice quiet roads for running; tennis, shuffleboard and other fun lawn games; and a nature trail down to the water where we enjoyed our coffee each morning. The breakfast was more than you would typically expect at a hotel. Overall a great place to stay.

We recently spent two nights at the Country House Resort in Sister Bay to celebrate a birthday and dine at our favorite restaurants. We were able to stay just before the summer rates went into effect so our stay was a very good value.

The rooms, while they have the usual appointments, were more comfortable than most and had special little features, such as very nice soaps and shampoos, big fluffy new towels, pillow top bed with very comfortable pillows and a great view overlooking the bay. The room included a fridge, coffee pot with excellent coffee and since we were too early in the season for a hot breakfast, we had OJ, scones and yogurt in our fridge. Wi-fi worked fine. We will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Bay view, preferably.

Green Features: They actually had recycling containers in the rooms!

Thank you for your review of our property. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and all of the little extras we provide for our guests. The Quiet season is definitely a great value but right now all of the resort amenities like our full European continental breakfast buffet, outdoor whirlpool, bikes... are available at our spring rates. Again a great value before summer gets into full swing! We certainly hope to see you during some of the other seasons at the Country House. Thank you again.

We stayed here with another couple in a neighboring room April 25 and 26. The rooms were so nice and clean. The beds and pillows were extremely comfortable, which is hard to find sometimes. The staff was very well informed and easliy answered our questions about the area and where to go. The cleaning staff went out of their way too to be helpful. Will for sure come back to this resort next time we visit Door County. Very nice walking along the water too.
