We were looking for a place that would suit our family of four--including a teenage boy and an 8-year old girl who LOVES to swim. Newport had it all--indoor AND outdoor pools (the outdoor closes at 8 pm so the noise doesn't bug anyone late into the night), indoor and outdoor playgrounds (ball pit!), bikes on the porch to use, a tiny game room with 4 arcade games, and FREE Wi-fi. There is a light continental breakfast if you want it, and the rooms have full kitchens so you have that option as well. There is even a guest laundry and regular housekeeping service. The resort is walking distance to shops and restaurants, and Egg Harbor's fireworks were easily seen from the front lawn. The Egg Harbor public beach is clean and the water is crystal clear, though a bit chilly. Egg Harbor itself is peaceful, compared to the bustling crowds of Fish Creek, so it is a great place to use as a home base for exploring Door County.
We were greeted by a very friendly, helpful staff member, who immediately saw that we had been charged for two additional people when our kids should have been free. He took that off right away. The rooms were very nice and had everything we needed, though next time we will definitely opt for the two-bedroom rather than the one. Staff was also helpful with restaurant tips, etc.
My only complaints: 1. The air-conditioner does not cool as well as I would have liked. It was impossible to get a cross-breeze with the window all on one side, and the A/C unit is in the living room, so the bedroom got stuffy even with the ceiling fan on. 2. Housekeeping was a bit hit-or-miss; we opened the dishwasher to load it and found the previous renter's dirty dishes. Gross.
My only caveat: If you want to be right on the water, this is not the place for you. That is the only reason I would stay anywhere else.
