After reading many reviews, we picked this beautiful inn to stay at during our trip to Door County. It was even better than expected! All the rooms are very spacious suites with nice views of the water. Being right on the Sturgeon Bay, it has a big lawn, a pier, and seats for watching the magnificent sunsets. Though it is in a quiet area off the beaten path, it is within a short driving distance to Sturgeon Bay museums and restaurants (including Culver’s, McDonalds, and local restaurants), and not far from many other tourist attractions in Door County. Our 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom suite had a full kitchen, large living room, fireplace, jacuzzi, and deck, and it was very well-maintained and nicely decorated. Next time we visit Door County, we will stay here again!

Hotel's Favorite
Our family of 8 stayed in the 3 bedroom cabin on the property. The cabin had a view of the water from the living room. It had two bathrooms which was nice as well as air conditioning. There was a pullout sofa in the living room, two kings, and two twin beds. The grounds were lovely and the outdoor pool was heated which is nice. The tennis court is not very playable as it has the tile court versus regular hard court. Also the lake swim area is not very inviting as there was some seaweed/moss, but they do work to clean it. Kayaking is fine, but it is not like swimming in a calm inland lake. I love the rich history they present in the historic lodge. The staff was very friendly and we often went in the lobby area for complimentary coffee, tea, books, and board games.

This was our 2nd stay at Bay Shore Inn and we enjoyed it once again. It is in a good location for enjoying Sturgeon Bay and the surrounding area. We love the view of Lake Michigan. The sunsets were so lovely. The unit was clean and well appointed. We always enjoy the local pub called Birminghams for a yummy fish fry.

Exceptional stay. Helpful staff, great facilities, and unbeatable lakeshore experience. Kayaks, indoor and outdoor pools, close to downtown, but quiet setting. Every room has a waterfront view. We'll be back!

Price was great for everything this place has to offer. Beautiful view from the balcony/bedroom. Bathroom was spacious , generous amount of towels was very nice, everything nicely kept up to date. Parking was free, and the scenery was really nice with all of the trees and fall colors. Only suggestion would be upgrading televisions inside the bedrooms, they are a little out dated for 2023 but not big deal if you do not care for that kind of thing. Checking in and out was really simple and everyone was nice and helpful. Definitely would love to stay again. Cant say enough how amazing the price was for a beautiful place like this.

Wonderful Inn by the lake. Our stay was perfect. The road to the inn was picturesque, as the leaves had turned colors. We reserved a one-bedroom lake view room. It had a full kitchen with utensils, and plenty of room, and a balcony. The view was fabulous. Staff was very friendly, and we had no issues at all. Room was extremely clean and seemed like maybe it had been updated recently? The bathroom and bedroom were like new. We had a great time, and will definitely come here again. Even the coffee was great...Door County Black and Tan. I nearly cried when we left, I didn't want to leave this wonderful inn and beautiful county!!

We had a two bedroom that was roomy and furnished as described. However, the smell and ambiance in the hallway was not good. Walking in the door to the building you are hit with a musty, dank, old cigarette smell which is unappealing and it’s a little dark and dingy. The room smelled a little better but still not pleasant. Also there was no lights in our part of the parking lot which made it impossible to see at night. For the money we would try somewhere else next time.

Thank you for the review and staying with us while you visited Door County. We appreciate your feedback on the hallways. We do have designated smoking areas on the property for our guests to utilize and depending on wind direction can cause some issues with the main entryway. There is lighting located outside each building and with the plan of installing more here in the future. Again, thank you for your review.
