Shallows Resort is set on the banks of Green Bay in Egg Harbor. It is secluded and woodsy which we love. 5 minute drive to downtown Egg Harbor. Beds are comfy and towels fluffy. The room was very clean. The setting overlooking Green Bay is spectacular! The only thing we suggest would be more options for breakfast besides just sweet rolls. Toast would be easy. The new owners and Lynn were very friendly and accommodating. Their dog "Charlie", the resort mascot, was a hit! Highly recommend this resort.

This was our third trip to Door County and our first stay at the Shallows Resort. We had a simple motel type room which was all we needed for the two of us. The first thing we noticed is how clean and comfortable everything in our room was. Also the grounds are well maintained with lots of outdoor comfortable chairs and lounges. The best part was that Green Bay was just outside our door. We were right on the water and every night almost everyone gathered to see the sunsets which never failed to delight. Also the people there were so friendly and helpful and the owner, Bob, made sure we all had plenty of coffee and delicious warm cinnamon rolls to start our day. They also have housekeeping units which are perfect for larger families. Also being located in Egg Harbor made it convenient to access all of Door County. We look forward to vacationing there again and bringing the family with us.
P.S. In regard to the questions below, our linens and towels were clean and fresh, they don't rent bicycles because they are free including canoes and kayaks, our small unit had a small refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker (including the coffee); however the large units have full kitchens.

We stayed 5/13-5/14.Great location on the water. Can watch the sunset from here. Door to the room is outside, other end of room is sliding doors with screen facing the water, walk out the sliding doors onto your own little deck. There is an area with propane grills and grilling utensils provided and picnic tables. Room and grounds clean and well maintained. 2 fire pit areas. Front desk will provide a fire starter and matches. At night there is no one at the front desk you have to dial zero and someone will come. A very small pile of wood is left near the fire pit that will burn very quickly. When I checked in I asked if they keep wood stocked at the fire pit, she said there should be wood there, I asked what if there is not. She pointed at an area behind the parking lot and said there is more wood over there. I said how do I transport the wood, she said there should be a wheel barrow or something. There was no wheel barrow the point is she was basically saying if there is no wood you can get your own over there, It was not a short walk from there to the fire pit.
Our second night there someone checked in to the room next to us. They were smoking cigarettes on there deck but they are right next to our sliding screen door and the cigarette smoke was filling our room. The next morning this continued so I tried to call the front desk. The front desk button on the room phone does not connect to the front desk. I had to find the phone number to the shallows and dial it, I think the maintenance man picked up even though he said front desk. I asked if they had a policy about smoking near the building, he said they would prefer if you didn't, I said isn't there a law about how close you can be, He said it's more of a house rule, then I told him our neighbor is smoking and the smoke is coming into our room and that there is a law about how far you have to be from a building if you are smoking. Then he said he would go talk to them. I don't know if he ever did because 15 minutes later they were right back out there smoking and continued smoking throughout the morning. We could not have our own sliding door open. The resort needs to clearly post no smoking signs on the decks outside the rooms and monitor this in the future.
The pool and hot tub are not available and look like they are under construction. Is this disclosed on there site?
Overall it is a beautiful location and we would return.

We just got home from an absolutely wonderful stay at the Shallows Resort. We stayed at the Gatehouse, and it couldn’t have been more perfect. With all the concerns about COVID, we were pleased to see how clean our unit was and loved that it had a separate entrance and a full kitchen. The grounds of the resort were so beautiful and well maintained, with lots of green space and amenities (basketball court, tennis court, shuffleboard, playground equipment, bikes, kayaks, swimming pool, WiFi, satellite TV, etc.). The shoreline for sunsets is probably the best you will find in Door County. You can relax on their comfortable lawn chairs, listen to the waves, and watch the sky turn colors. There are also fire pits for a campfire. And the location turned out to be perfect! It was very central to the many towns in Door County. As cute as some of the towns were, though, we always enjoyed coming back to our quiet setting on the waterfront. We traveled all around the peninsula and saw lots of other lodging options, but I was so happy we picked the Shallows. I give their resort my highest recommendation!! PS. Forgot to mention .... the king sized bed was super comfy:)

We’ve been to Door County many times and always like to stay someplace new if we can, but this time it didn’t live up to our expectations.
The wifi was terrible, the satellite tv was in and out, the shower was made for little people and the deco desperately needed updating... And the tv’s were very tiny. It also didn’t have any food or drinks for guests other than a pop machine which I thought was petty.
Will try a new place next time and be more thorough before booking... considering this was $200/night.

Thanks

We stayed at the Shallows Resort last year and enjoyed it so much that we decided to make the trip to Door County again this year. The Gatehouse accommodations were full, so we booked a motel unit facing the waterfront instead. Both types of lodging were great! The resort is very well maintained and the staff is very friendly. We liked the convenience of the location and the setting on the waterfront has to be the best in Door County. No need to go anywhere else to see gorgeous sunsets! We hated to leave, but will definitely be back again.

My wife and I stayed in the Eagle’s Nest for 5 nights in July. The house is on a dead end street, south of Egg Harbor, so it’s a very quiet and relaxing location. We specially liked the various decks and screened in porch (for meals). The house was very comfortable for the 2 of us. I believe it was a great find in what can be a very crowded, noisy, door county summer.

We have only 1 complaint. We twice (once via phone and once in person) contacted the office, expressing a concern that the gas for the grill appeared to be low and we were afraid of running out while grilling dinner. We were assured that someone would come over and check things out. Perhaps someone did. But we ended up running out a minute or two before finishing. Not enough to be a big issue, but more upset that our efforts to address a potential problem before it became an issue was not heeded.

Overall we enjoyed our stay and recommend to others who are considering a quiet location in Door County.

We've stayed at The Shallows for vacations and getaways at least once a year since 2007. You will not find a more beautiful and well-maintained property at this price point! The peacefulness of the location was so welcome, as the crowds in the various communities were the biggest we had seen in many years. With long lines at the restaurants, we were glad we could use our Gatehouse kitchen and the Shallows picnic grove. Yes, the wi-fi was spotty but this was the first year we ever experienced that. All in all, we love The Shallows and cannot wait to book our 2021 vacay!

I would describe this hotel as more rustic than most in the neighborhood, so it's not for everyone. The buildings are pretty aged, and rooms are small. But it's on the shores of Green Bay, and access to the lake is a huge benefit that outweights pretty much everything. There are more upscale and polished hotels on the shores of Green Bay and Lake Michigan in Door County, but in some of them you'lll leave your wallet behind. Not in this one - prices are moderate here. Also, they allow pets if that's important to you. Breakfast is a plus too - you don't have to waste time looking for a munch in town in the morning. There is no beach to speak of. But they do have a nice fire ring on the shore, with several benches around it. There is an outdoor swimming pool.

My 5th stay at the Shallows! A peaceful, friendly resort with awesome views from the Beach House 2 story condo with all the amenities. Bob and Jeanne know how to make their guests feel at home. Located about a mile or so from downtown Egg Harbor the Shallows offers a close location but quiet and privacy not far away. You will not be disappointed. A wonderful value too.

Can't go wrong. Get a motel room if possible. Best bet is to call them.
Answer from Front D

We only have one small Woodview Motel room available at that time period which has one queen bed. We do have complimentary bikes, canoes, kayaks and rowboats as well as tennis, outdoor heated pool and hottub and a daily continental breakfast. Sorry. Jeanne
