We stayed here in August and had a wonderful time during our stay there. The property is well maintained and our room was very clean and nice. It was a good size too for being a double queen suite. The hotel is very close to downtown Sister Bay so you will be close to the beach they have there. The... More

We stayed for an extended weekend and was very pleased with this hotel. It was very clean, has the basic amenities (pool, hot tub, work out room, snack bar) and is in a good quiet location. We stayed in a king suite in the newer part of the hotel which was very nice/modern with the decor and very roomy. The... More

My husband and I stayed at Open Hearth Lodge with our two children ages 12 and 1. We really enjoyed the backyard area with lawn games and a playground! There was also a fire pit available but we didn't have a chance to use it. The rooms were very clean and the beds were really comfortable. Very clean and nice... More

The hotel was average. The rooms were clean, but hallways could have used some work. The pool smelled very strongly of chlorine. There is a large backyard with a small playground for children and some games. A place is available to build a campfire. There are chairs and tables. It's nice to have somewhere to sit outside.

We stayed here for three days. It was a very nice hotel. There were a few things that would have made it better. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and I liked the set up of the room. The sink and mirrors etc.,, were outside the main bathroom where the toilet and shower are located. There was no coffee... More

Meeting family at Sister Bay offered me a first time visit to Door County the week of August 8. 2016. I wanted a hotel near Sister Bay (walkable) but not in the center of town. I found Open Hearth Lodge. I was warmly welcomed by Open Hearth management when I arrived and during my stay they offered several suggestions for... More

We recently spent several days at the Open Hearth. We found the hotel to be clean, well-run, and up to date. The staff was friendly, and was easily identified by the uniform T-shirts that say "Home is where the Hearth is". The amenities were everything we wanted, including a swimming pool, Jacuzzi, and a well-appointed breakfast room with large, open-feeling... More

We had three couples with us on vacation to Door County, WI. Two of the three couples had never been to Door County or Sister Bay, where the Open Hearth Lodge is located. We had never stayed here either although this was our 4th trip to Door County since last October. So yes, we love Door County. But we cannot... More

Bonnie, I am sorry I never got to meet you so I could address your concerns while you were here for the one night.. The hard floor rooms are mopped between each customer. We have reviewed the floor cleaning procedures for those rooms. We will return to bucket cleaning instead of mops with fluids attached. They do pick up a... More

My daughters loved this hotel. The pool and deck outback are absolutely wonderful. The rates were very reasonable compared to other places I checked. A perfect location that is close to all the places we wanted to go.
