“Clean, convenient, friendly”
Reviewed October 13, 2011

We have stayed many places in Door County and chose this one based on ratings from Trip Advisor. It is VERY clean and convenient in that you never feel too far away from anything. I must say the "quiet" reviews are a fact, only if you are on the side away from the main road. And the quiet-side is actually directly on the parking lot, but it really is quiet. The continental breakfast is fresh, complete and tasty - certainly sufficient until you get moving for the day and ready to try the miles and miles of good restaurants!

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the highway and on the second floor.

This is a little bit out of "town", but it's convenient too. Plenty of parking when we were there. Rooms are tidy, homey and functional. Not a lot of outlets so if you are traveling with people who want to plug in laptops, phones, etc you may want to bring your own power strip. Mini fridge is handy.
Continental breakfast is fruit, yogurt, granola bars, and pastries, w/coffee and juice. Does the job of breaking the fast so you can go out later for a big ol breakfast at a restaurant and survive the wait in line. :-)
Beds were comfy, drapes kept the room dark, and the quiet atmosphere led to us sleeping later than we'd planned, but that was ok-it was vacation!
Pool and hot tub area are very clean and pleasant.
Individual balconies/patios are a nice touch-great for eating the continental breakfast or an afternoon beer between activities.
Large grassy lot next door made for great outdoor seating and really impressive stargazing, too-we could easily see the milky way and saw many shooting stars. Love that!
Office staff was friendly, too. They made suggestions of things to do in case we were lacking in ideas. We've stayed there before and on our drive we commented that we wondered if the engaging young man from our previous trip would be there again, and he was-a pleasant surprise. (boy, do I feel old saying that!!) Also ran into a guy who seemed like a maintenance guy and he was cheerful and welcoming as well. The maids we encountered seemed a bit young and chatty but they obviously do their job well, so they certainly are entitled to have fun at work!
If there is any one thing I find a bit odd is the bike rack that overlaps/shares the handicapped parking space. I am not sure it's the best place for the rack-but it's nice to have one (and a handicapped space).
Yep, we'll be back-Door County and the Nordic Lodge always leave us wanting more.

From the registration process to check out, the Nordic Lodge was very professional and efficient. The lodge is located in a location where it does not pick up a lot of noise from the road. Room was very clean and quiet and we liked the park-like setting behind the lodge. Lodge staff was helpful in recommending places to eat and things to do.

Very clean, charming place with extremely nice owners / managers. Located in a very quiet stretch of coastline on a hill overlooking the water, but convenient to everything. Actually it's quite romantic. The room was immaculate and the beds comfortable. Best of all was the price... very reasonable considering how nice the place is. I highly recommend this place and feel it's quite a find.

We were recently at the Nordic Lodge in Sister Bay and had a wonderful time. We stayed in the suite - very nice with complete kitchen, separate bedroom with king size bed and lovely living area complete with fireplace. The staff was quite helpful and friendly and the breakfast which includes fruit, juices, muffins, yogurt and coffees is better than most places. I would highly recommend the Nordic Lodge which is centrally located in Sister Bay and within a short drive to many of Door County's attractions.

I thought finding a nice place in Door County for around $100 a night was impossible, so the Nordic Lodge was a pleasant
find. The building and grounds were well-kept, the room was
clean and the bed was very comfortable. Nothing too fancy
but perfect when all you need is a place to sleep and a warm shower. The staff was polite and helpful. And although breakfast
was just the typical pastry - juice spread, the locally roasted coffees that are served all day in the lobby were quite good.
The only complaint was that we had a group of women below us that sat out on their patio early each morning and every evening talking loud enough to be heard through our closed door and window. I would also recommend asking for a room in the back (unless traffic noise doesn't bother you ). Overall, a decent place to stay and would definitely consider staying here again.
