Since my first 3-night visit here in 2009, I have stayed here on seven more 3-night visits. Owners Laurie, Bob & Kristina are still as kind as ever, always making me, my wife & my dogs feel very welcome! They have done some nice upgrades in the past 3 years, mainly carpeting & shower curtains. As always, the rooms at Scenic Shore are impeccable.
One thing I never knew---they will never recommend a restaurant that they haven't tried themselves (ie., by word of mouth.) For those who want to visit Door County, it is so much cheaper to stay here, and just drive to Door County for daily visits (or nightly restaurants.) Scenic Shore is only about 7 miles south of the Door County line!
The motel features 100% smoke free rooms, has free parking right outside your door, and there is a nice view of Lake Michigan right across the street. The air up here (NE Wisconsin) is the freshest that you will ever breath. There are restaurants all over the many towns nearby, ranging from budget to upscale, and everything in between. A very nice Piggly Wiggly grocery store is next door, and there is another very nice supermarket one mile into Algoma called Denny's.
On many occasions, daughter & co-owner, Kristina, shares some of her home made cakes with patrons---a very nice touch. This is a small motel featuring 13 rooms, so reservations are a must during the busy summer months. Algoma is a fishing capital in Wisconsin, so the fisherman enjoy staying here too. Situated on very nicely kept grounds of about 4-5 acres, Kristina can frequently be seen, keeping the lawn neatly manicured with her John Deere tractor mower. Pet friendly, kid friendly, family friendly, senior friendly & Nuclear Plant worker friendly! Just plain down right "friendly".
So, the next time you're up this way, stay in the cleanest motel you'll ever come across---well appointed rooms---comfortable Queen beds---slide open the window & enjoy that Lake Michigan breeze. Eat at one of the many nice eateries in Algoma or Kewaunee (about 10 miles south.) And, save some money with their decent rates! Always a pleasure................
