“Beautiful view and grounds”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

This resort has absolute beautiful views and beautiful grounds. It is very peaceful and has a nice walk down to the lake and a trail along the shore to town. The front desk staff is super friendly. Breakfast is nice. I enjoyed having hot chocolate and coffee always available. And the cookies at night were a nice treat. The cleaning lady was a bit rude when she asked us at 10:30am if we were going to want our room made up and we said yes, that we would be leaving in 30 minutes. This timing seemed to be a big inconvenience for her, but she still made the room up nice so no major complaint. The bed is comfy and the room is clean, but overall mediocre for the high price (a bit old and worn). You pay for the overall nice experience. I would return here.

We are so pleased that you enjoyed your visit to Door County and the Country House and thank you for taking the time to provide a review of our resort. Fall is such a beautiful time of year here!

I apologize that you felt rushed by the housekeeping staff and that they were rude. I know that it can be a long season for our staff but 11:00 is certainly not late and I will be sure to remind them that customer service should always be our number one priority.

While our view and location is undoubtedly some of our greatest assets we continually work to upgrade and improve our accommodations. Each year we look to guest feedback to help us prioritize projects. I know we will be upgrading additional linens, deck chairs and adding DVRs to all rooms this off season.

Thank you again for your review and we look forward to seeing you again!

We had a phenomenal stay at the Country House Resort. We arrived and were greeted by staff that knew how to please guests. Warm cookes awaited us by the registration desk.
The room was clean and well taken care of
The breakfast each morning was a great start for the day with either muffins, or cinnamon rolls plus fruit, eggs, cereal etc.
They offered bikes that we could use, a nice pool and hot tub.
We didnt spend a great deal of time at the property but it was a great starting and ending point for each day.

Room Tip: Choose a room that overlooks the water-BEAUTIFUL VIEW OF the fountain and the bay!

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Country House Resort. We are a same-sex couple and were treated with nothing but the utmost respect and hospitality. The pet-friendly policies are what really sold us on booking a room with the Country House Resort. Having our puppy along with us for our mini-honeymoon in Door County was such a delight. They provided a pet basket for our dog, and the people at the front desk were always so helpful, knowledgeable and able to suggest some great places to visit with our dog in tow. We found the room to be VERY spacious - We were quite impressed. We stayed in a First Floor King Suite. The hotel staff even left us some chocolates to congratulate us on our marriage during our second day there. We had a relaxing, wonderful time in Sister Bay thanks to the Country House Resort. Although the room itself is similar to many other hotel rooms (it's not a luxury room by any means), the whirlpool, fireplace and beautiful views make this a fantastic location for a couple to enjoy some downtime together. The king bed is spacious and very comfortable, and we appreciated having the little kitchen area as well. We recommend this place for those looking for a relaxing getaway, and we are very thankful to the staff for being so friendly and accommodating! They clearly take pride in this resort and put the needs of their customers first.

We had a room over the parking lot, it was clean but small. The mattress was the old style flat and hard. With the pillows being "hotel" flat. The continental breakfast was average.We did take advantage of their Segway package which also included a $40.00 dinner certificate, and a $25.00 Certificate from the Door County Tourism dept. was able to use it but took us many tries to finally find someone to accept it. So just average for us.

Room Tip: If you stay during the warmer months maybe try the water front side.

Thank you for taking the time to submit a review of our resort. I apologize that we did not meet and exceed your expectations. The room you described is our smallest and least expensive but the mattress is a pillow top. I am sorry that you did not find it comfortable. Mattress preferences are so personal that it is difficult to find a style that appeals to everyone but I will make sure that there are no signs of wear or damage. Each room should contain a choice of both feather and foam pillows and additional pillows of either type are available upon request. I have asked our manager to review both the inventory and quality of the pillows in each room.

I am very disappointed to learn that you encountered difficulty in redeeming the Door County Visitor Bureau gift certificate. It is our intent in providing these, to offer our guests the widest possible options for redemption. We will provide your feedback to the Bureau and work to ensure better education and acceptance among local merchants.

Thank you again for your input and we hope that overall you enjoyed your visit to Door County.

Just spent the weekend here with friends and had a wonderful time. We had a suite with 2 King bed rooms and a mini-kitchen and living room with fireplace. It was the perfect setup for two couples. When we weren't out sightseeing or eating we were able to relax in the living room with a few bottles of wine and a great view...we had a balcony overlooking the water. Although the weather was cool, we were able to enjoy the outdoor spa in the evening. Breakfast was perfect - plenty of choices from hard boiled eggs, cereal, fruit, and a different home made pastry or muffin each day. The grounds are very nice and peaceful. Location is a 2 minute ride to all of the downtown of Sister Bay - very convenient. It is centrally located for visiting all of the other northern Door County towns. We would definitely return to this place.

We had a great time this weekend! The staff was wonderful, the atmosphere so relaxing and quiet, and the scenery really was spectacular. This is the 3rd time we visited Door County (we did NOT stay here) and said if this resort didn't work we wouldn't go back. Well, I can't wait to go back again. We're already making our plans. We had a King Suite and it was really nice. Their breakfast was perfect for us and I loved having fresh coffee throughout the day. It really is "an adult retreat" that allowed people to bring their pets (we didn't bring ours this visit but will in the future) and everyone was very friendly. The nature trail, the gardens, the flowers ... everything was just perfect. Thank you so much.

Room Tip: Suite was great - view was facing the bay. Really nice!!!
