Nice, clean, handy place if you want a place to sleep when visiting Sister Bay. Family owned and the owners are very nice. Just do not really count on breakfast unless you are ok with cereal and milk or sweet pastry.

We knew nothing about Coachlite Inn before our stay and were delighted to find a charming & inviting place located on busy Bayshore Drive tucked away behind the pines. The driveway is lined with beautiful flowers and plants leading to a lovely garden oasis setting.

My daughter and I had the pleasure of visiting the Coachlite Inn last week on our trip to Door County. We found it to be just as advertised. The microwave and minifridge in the room were put to good use for my gluten free breakfast, the beds were quite comfortable, and the temperature easily controlled. The landscaping outside was well...

The hotel is set back from the street among trees, so it feels private. The room was decorated with a homey feel. The owner is very personable and answered all of my many questions, even looking of information for me on the internet, addressing all of my needs. The stores and restaurants were conveniently located and some within a walkable... More

Set in a lovely little garden, just off the main street of Sister Bay, the Coachlite Inn was a bit like staying over at a friend's house in the country with the extra amenities of a hotel. The room was clean and quite large but what really struck us were the outdoor fire pit, running brook, and whirl pool. Each... More

Stayed here with my husband and parents for two nights in late June. We arrived about 45 minutes early and were pleasantly surprised that we could get into our rooms immediately. Our room had stenciled blue flower accents that caught the eye and matched the deep blue curtains. The bath/shower appeared to have been recently updated, and sink fixtures looked... More

We found ourselves with a free weekend and decided to book an impromptu trip to Door County, one of our family's favorite getaways. Since it was the last minute, we were prepared to take nearly any hotel room we could find. We snapped up the Coachlite room as soon as we saw it and were more than pleased with our... More

Thank you very much for staying with us and for your kind review. We too feel our location works out well for those who want to visit either the Bay Side or the Lake Side Villages.

The Coachlite Inn is a lovely place to stay; close to great restaurants, winery’s and lots of sightseeing. A perfect relaxation destination located in a wooded area about 90 minutes north of Green Bay driving through beautiful Door County.
