I was a little unsure how to rate this place. I'll list the pros and cons and you can decide for yourself. It seems to vary from room to room, my cousins were in a double second floor room and it was very nice. I was in #6. Pros: Nice, large rooms with windows that actually open. AC/heat worked well....

This is our second time here but this time I see some things that I should bring up. Overall the place is a nice little cabin and all four of us that were there had a great time but let me tell you about my grips, first of all when we arrived and found no one to pay my balance... More

Our company held a team building event on this property. We had to rent the entire Inn for two nights, but we slept 20 people comfortably. The Inn had plenty of indoor and outdoor space for our meetings and our team building activities. The kitchen and dinning room worked great for us. We cooked our own meals - but it... More

I called Tuesday morning to find availability for one night for 2 people and 2 dogs. Checked in Wednesday early afternoon . Expected something more modern but it's cute nonetheless. Upon entry into the cottage noticed there was no air conditioner on the first floor. I checked out the second floor and saw only one small built in air conditioning... More

Harbor Light is a Door County treasure. We enjoyed our stay and it was perfect for our family reunion. We took over the resort for the weekend, had access to a perfect common room and were able to invite the entire extended family for a Sunday afternoon gathering. The young ones loved playing under the trees and we all enjoyed... More

We had a large family reunion at the Inn and it worked out perfectly. We all had different needs and there was a place for everyone. Families had the lower lighthouse and Troll House. New couples in the upstairs more private king suites. Early risers closer to the common kitchen. We booked almost every space for the weekend & basically... More

We stayed for two weekday nights, just prior to the start of the main tourist season. Our room (Galleon) was spacious and light. I noticed that all the pictures were off the walls so I suspect they were getting ready to repaint as other renovation was ongoing. However, there was no noise or disturbance. This was a nice base from... More

I love lighthouses and the thought of spending the night in one was unbelievable! Yes, I know it wasn't a "real" lighthouse but it was set up in a way that gave me an experience that I loved! Very bright, clean,comfy and roomy. Great attention to detail carried the lighthouse theme throughout without becoming gaudy. We completely enjoyed our first... More

On the spur of the moment on New Year's Eve day we decided to drive up to door. We called around a couple of places. We have been going to Door for about 16 years. We have never stayed this far up the peninsula. We were looking for dog friendly properties. We talked to Sheenah and she gave us the... More
