Having stayed in a number of places in Door County over several decades (Waterbury Inn, Landmark Resort, The Settlement, etc.) we thought that the old location-location-location credo didn't matter in an area when everything is so close. We were wrong. Once our kids left the nest, we discovered this family-owned, adults-only gem that has a unique location of being RIGHT on Green Bay, up a hill from a private hiking trail. Since our first visit included our dog (certain suites are dog-friendly), this was a home run. We've returned many times, enjoying its proximity to Sister Bay's waterfront, miniature golf, and restaurants, and enjoyed it so much that we rented The Penthouse for 5 nights in September of 2020 so that our two adult kids and their spouses could converge on the hotel to celebrate my wife's 60th birthday. The proprietor, Warren Zaug, is very hands-on but service oriented, and every year he and his staff take great care of us and all other guests. The included breakfast is very tasty, consisting of things like fresh made scones and great coffee from a local shoppe. Even during Covid, the place was packed due to following restrictions in a creative, guest-friendly way (like a manned breakfast bar with very generous portions). Finally, the place has a tennis court, horseshoes, ladder game, cornhole, and even free bicycle usage to ensure that guests can enjoy the quiet, wooded locale. Like everything else in Door County, this isn't a luxurious urban or beach resort. But if you are looking for a clean "Wisconsin-fancy" inn with nice suites, great views of the bay, a fantastic little walking trail, and a delicious breakfast, you cannot go wrong...and The Penthouse (we also rented a King Suite since it has only 2 bedrooms plus a foldout couch) is a fantastic spot for 2 or 3 couples to get away for a week or weekend, boasting a fireplace, huge living room, gorgeous view, full kitchen, and even an office where you can get work done without disturbing other members of the group. Wifi is free. Until next time, Warren!

Hotel's Favorite
Grateful to have found this resort in our search for a babymoon getaway. It is perfect for both couples and extended family get togethers. There are 45 rooms each with a patio or balcony facing the bay. Your view depends on your floor level. The major selling point is the free activities available - pool, kayaks, ladder golf, cornhole, and volleyball. It is also conveniently located within walking distance to Johnson’s Game Park and Pirate’s Cove mini golf. We also took a 15-min hike along the water into town the first evening. As for the rooms, you can expect an updated shower, a nice sized frig with small freezer, a comfy lazy boy, and two nice chairs and a table for playing games when you need a break from the heat. The complimentary breakfast now being served during Covid was also perfect - jimmy dean egg/sausage sandwich plus yogurt or danish. If questioning sister bay, Don’t. It is a prime spot- situated 10 minutes from Ephraim/Peninsula State Park and 20 minutes from Baileys Harbor and Newport State Park. Dinner options are pretty good in town along with two ice cream shops! (A few restaurants could use more shade) Since we wished to socially distance, we carried out from Grasses one night and ate at the beach. We also enjoyed outside dining at Fat Belly And lastly carried in pizza from Wild Tomato to eat on our lovely patio overlooking the bay. Overall, we couldn’t have been happier with our trip. Don’t forget a stop at Koeplers, Red Putter, and Fred & Fuzzies.

My husband and I have stayed at the Country House twice, for our honeymoon and then again for our 3rd anniversary. We loved both our stays!! The water view suite with massage shower and whirlpool is perfect for a romantic getaway. The porch is great for enjoying the complimentary breakfast (awesome grab and go right now!!) One of the best parts of Country House is the extra amenities- kayaks, bikes, yard games, tennis, and a nature trail. We also love the extra touches, robes and mineral salts or essential oil packs for the whirlpool tubs. This year they even left us a box of chocolates for our anniversary!! Amazing service and cozy, romantic getaway. Can’t wait to return.

We had a bit of a disappointing experience (room cleanliness) however the manager responded to my email almost immediately after I alerted him of our concerns, he handled it extremely well, I'd give it another chance.

My wife and I were excited to get back to Door County after 10 years. Country House was a perfect 3 day get away. We enjoyed the Penthouse room with awesome views and plenty of room to spread out. We enjoyed the kayaks and outdoor pool and there are many activities you can do onsite. The walk into Sister Bay is about 10 minutes. There is a challenging hill to climb to get back to the resort. We have found a new favorite place to stay in Door County

Thank you for posting a review of our property. We are so happy you returned to Door County and found the Country House Resort. The Penthouse is a truly unique accomodation with an amazing view and I agree that the walk back up from the shoreline is a bit of a workout! We hope you won't wait another 10 years before you return. We hope to see you again much sooner,
