We've just returned from our 3rd stay at Country House. From the warm and friendly reception to the spotlessly clean room, the stay was wonderful. We stayed in the Carriage House which is a separate unit from the rest of the resort. The pillow top king bed provided an incredible night's sleep. The room was spotless and appeared as though we were the first guests to stay in this unit, although we actually stayed in this room for the first time 18 years ago and again last year. The bath towels were thick and luxurious, the in room hot tub was relaxing after a day of hiking at Peninsula State Park. Each morning we were greeted with a warm good morning and friendly conversation when we came in for the complimentary breakfast. The grounds were beautiful with spring flowers blooming around the fountains. Although we didn't use the amenities, the Country House offers bikes for use, row boats, volley ball, and croquet. There is a beautiful trail along the shores of Green Bay that guest can use to walk into the Village of Sister Bay. We look forward to returning for another relaxing get away.

This is our third visit here. The others were more "in season". The service has always been very good, the staff friendly and accommodating without being intrusive, The view of the bay is great and the area is mostly wooded around the grounds which are quite beautiful. The feeling one gets when one drives onto the grounds is that of getting away from the hustle and bustle of the area, even though the "action" is only a couple blocks away.

The standard amenities are present including free wi-fi in the rooms and computer/ printer in the lobby. They furnish a basic breakfast free of charge although there is no restaurant on the grounds. The rooms are fairly basic, but comfortable. There are suites available that we haven't yet stayed in and can't speak to, The rooms we have stayed in have in- room DVD players and a small refrigerator as well as cable TV. The price is consistent with other places in the area although we haven't found another place where the view is as good.

If you are looking for a place with a lot of activities and on site entertainment, this isn't the place for you. All of that is available within a few blocks of the Country House. The main charm of the Country House lies in its peaceful, tranquil surroundings where you can go for walks, enjoy the view, or just relax by the pool. If you want something more exciting, it is just a few blocks away.

We highly recommend it and plan to continue to come.

Enjoyed our stay, staff is friendly and polite, check in is easy, rooms are clean and comfy, grounds are well maintained, great continental european breakfast included, coffee served all day and freshly baked cookies in the afternoon. Nice path to the bay below, with a pier and seating for fishing or watching a great sunset, great location to everthing, staff very helpful with suggestions, for dinners and activities around, would not hesitate to return, was here 16 years ago, and everything is really kept up and not run down as some other places.

This was our second stay at the Country House Resort and our last. We requested to check out a day early because of a problem with our house and water damage. They offered us a gift certificate for the remaining day which I told them would not work for us because we lived 350 miles away during part of the year and in Florida the other part and did not think we would be able to use the gift certificate before it expired. We were truly upset and had hoped for more understanding on their part.
