All day- popcorn, homemade cookies, coffee, tea, cocoa Room- beautiful view, adorably decorated, great in room whirlpool, every room has a view of the lake (which is only steps away), some... More

My husband and I came to Door County for the first time at the end of October for a few days and can't wait to return. The Blacksmith Inn is beautiful, cozy, and the staff are unbelievably friendly and helpful. It was like staying with family and being welcomed into their home. Staying here made our trip very special because... More

Although we live in Mid-Michigan, my husband and I love to pop over to Door County, WI for a long weekend in autumn. Our favorite place to stay is the Blacksmith Inn on the Shore in Bailey's Harbor and we have stayed there several times. We are always very busy and have hectic lives. Knowing that we can escape to... More

My wife and I got married last October. We were not anticipating going on a honeymoon as my wife had just started a new job and didn't think she'd get the time off. Well, last minute she got the time off and we scrambled to find a place to go. We found what seemed to be the last place with... More

We had a wonderful stay at Blacksmith Inn on the Shore, and couldn't have been happier with our choice of Inn, or room (No. 9, in Harbor House). The bed was the most comfortable I recall from any stay anywhere and the bathroom was very large with thoughtful touches such as shelves and ledges so there was ample storage for... More

We stayed at the Blacksmith Inn for the first time this past weekend (Sept 2013) to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It was beautiful, the property was quiet, CLEAN, and relaxing, and the staff was excellent. We have already planned our return visit!

We stayed here March 2013,as you can imagine it was quite quiet at the B&B which was great being a Chicago native. Door county was completely iced in,the bays were frozen solid when we arrived,the owners/help welcomed us to their establishment and told us where to find our rooms. We stayed in room 5 upstairs and found it quite a... More

Having had a fantastic stay at the Blacksmith Inn last year, we wondered if a longer stay would be equally wonderful. We needn't have worried: our five day stay was flawless. Walking through the cottage-style gardens along a brick path sets the stage for entering Harbor House--one of the two buildings that make up the inn. Upon entering you immediately... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Blacksmith in. We were in the Harbor house room 10. The location is great. While on the lake side of Door County, it is a short ride through the heart of Door County. sister Bay, or Eprmiam, or Fish Creek are all like 10 minutes away. The breakfast is light an perfect. The kayaks... More

This In is a real charmer with many amenities and comforts and activities provided for guests. The whole Inn is furnished with country antiques and surrounded by a gorgeous garden. Balconies provide great views of the lake and woodlands and the hosts provide bikes and other equipment to enjoy the area. Hospitality was excellent and the light breakfasts were lovely... More
