This was my first ever night in a motel in the US and I was not disappointed. The owner Kurt was very friendly and it was nice to be able to sit outside my room and chill out after a ride up from New Berlin on my rented Harley. The free coffee and cake in the morning was a nice... More

This motel is an older structure, but has been maintained very well. We stayed 2 nights in one of the small cabins. The room was very clean and well kept. The grounds are nice, with several tables and chairs outdoors on the lawn. This place is just on the edge of Sister Bay and is well within walking distance to... More

We enjoyed everything. Location is great. Just down the street many great places to eat and relax. Very clean place, friendly staff, reasonable price. We stayed for a few nights while driving around during the days. We just needed clean place with shower and bed and right price. And we found it.

The couple that own this motel are very nice and accommodating to our needs. We stay in a room for one night which was very clean but the furniture is out dated. Then we spent another night in the 2 bedroom apartment which was very nice but the furniture can be updated. If your looking for quiet and out of... More

This is an older motel, but is very clean. Our only complaint was that the cushioned chairs or carpet smelled very musty. Room wasn't huge, but large enough for 2 beds and able to move around. Bathroom was standard, had great water pressure. Check in/out was easy. Had ice in a freezer outside of the office. Coffee after 7:30 and... More

I spent one night here, great place if you're on a budget. I really liked the location; tucked up into the bluff off the beaten path. The place is really cute from the street and really dated (in a good way) on the inside. However My room needed some repairs- busted tiles in the shower, caulking falling off the wall... More

Took a July 4th vacation to Sister Bay for the first time. As I always do, I search for places to stay. I also search for good price. I found this neat little cottage. It is very clean, safe, and only walking distance to town. The price is reasonable. I would recommend this place.

We decided to do a day trip to Sister Bay, ending up finding this motel for the reasonable price and we could not have been happier. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. They have nice tables out front which were great for just have some drinks and relaxing. They also have a fire pit which looked nice. We did... More

From the very start, owners Nancy and Kurt were very kind and enthusiastic about their small, reasonably-priced motel and Door County in general. We stayed in their two-bedroom suite above their office. It has a full kitchen, two bedrooms, living room, bathroom and a "little room," as our kids called it, with just a small couch (great for meditation, by... More
