Such a cute place! Our shower was so huge and the bed was extremely comfortable. The employee who helped us was so nice. I loved everything about this place. Loved how there was a common area for people staying in the rooms and there was also separate house. Would definitely recommend staying here

We had a great experience at the Harborlight. We stayed in the Galleon room. It was very clean and comfortable. Beautiful view of the water and lots of windows. Nice patio to sit on and look at the water. The owners are very nice and helpful. There is a sauna that we did not use, but nice that it’s available. Microwave and fridge in room. There is a large common room with kitchen that seemed to have anything you would need in it. I even saw fixings in there for s’mores. There is a nice fire pit area. It is close to the Washington Island ferry. It was nice to be in a quiet area away from the super busy spots in Door County, but a close enough drive to get to Sister Bay, etc.

Wonderful experience! Absolutely great accommodations for my large family of 19. We had 7 units, two with full kitchens. The common room enabled us to get together for games and a final meal with all. I especially enjoyed the gazebo which quickly became our outdoor social meeting spot. The manager and his wife kept the accommodations very clean and very helpful when we asked for advice.

We stayed here for Memorial Day and loved it so much. The room was impeccably clean and comfortable. We were met with such kindness from Refik, who offered recommendations in the area and was available if we needed him for anything. The flowerpots around the property were beautiful and we even saw a little vegetable garden in the back. There was a microwave and fridge in the room, which was nice to put a few snacks, since there are few restaurants within walking distance. It was a quiet escape, and we can't wait to go back.

The hotel is across the street of the water! The room was spotlessly clean. The front desk attendent was fast and recommended a great breakfast place. The beds were great, high thread count, and comfortable. The towels were really thick. Spacious room and a great value!
