This hotel is fantastic. The owners are very personable and accommodating. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The hotel is located in the heart of the peninsula. They have good rates. They have a pool, hot tub and a very good breakfast.

The lodge is all around well kept. Each room we have ever stayed in has always achieved the upmost cleanliness. Even the pet-friendly rooms are spotless and updated. During the holidays, the hotel has the wondrous smell of aromatic firs from the fresh cut trees and garland throughout. In the busy summer season the entire hotel is comfortably temperature controlled...

My fiance and have come here 2 years in a row for our anniversary. The property is beautiful and there is a jacuzzi in a circle room with glass windows and doors. Both of our stays were excellent and we appreciate the small continental breakfast.

I don't like to bad mouth hotels, but the cleanliness could really use some work! When we arrived, there was a partial condom wrapper on the floor, bugs in the floor, and hair in the shower. We shrugged that off as we were tired and wanted to relax. About 11 at night, I was lying in bed when my husband...

We apologize for the unsatisfactory stay. One correction. I personally took both beds apart. There are no holes and those mattresses are 2 to 3 years old. I could find no signs of bugs but I know they can be carried in on shoes or luggage, etc; this is a nature area. Please feel free to use the other bed...

It's not often where one finds owners who truly care about their guests experiences. It's also not often to receive hospitality instead of service. My girlfriend and I encountered both here. We live in Green Bay. After a week and a half of physically getting pummeled at work, we just wanted to get out of town on our days off...

Opened in late 2015, this is possibly one of the finest places to stay when you are visiting Door County. A husband & wife run lodge located off the main highway. The rooms are great, the staff are friendly. The only slight downfall would be the lack of choices for breakfast. Apart from that there is nothing to complain about....

This is a wonderful place to stay. Great location in door County, very clean , nice pool/hot tub, lovely breakfast area. We stayed in the suite. It was perfect for the 4 of us. Two bedrooms/2 baths. Owners are very pleasant and friendly. We have stayed there every fall for many years.

The first time we stayed at Open Hearth Lodge, we were very pleased with our room, because we were in the new part of the lodge. This time we were put in a room in the old lodge, and it needs some help. Mattresses were a little soft, sink filled with water and drained slow as did the bathtub while...

We have become regulars here after trying many other hotels, motels and inns. Rooms are nice size, very clean and comfortable! Owners are great people going out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. Nice free breakfast! Check out their two night packages for a great value and lots of local color & culture!
