Location:
In a beautiful wooded area, a short drive from Fish Creek, and very quiet
Cleanliness:
Excellent
Atmosphere:
Homey, relaxed, and friendly
Service:
Excellent, with a smile every time
Breakfast:
You can eat in the very cozy lobby or take a tray to your room, including coffee, which included Door County Cherry Creme (yay!) tea, all sorts of scones and doughnuts, yogurts, fresh fruits, fruit juices, and a variety of health bars.
Rooms:
Nicely decorated, hot water arrives immediately, hair dryer in the bathroom, a small porch which is great for breathing in the woodsy smell. Two of our party found their beds soft, two said they were fine.
Facilities:
Indoor heated pool and great indoor whirlpool
Extras:
There is coffee and tea in the lobby all day long, and at night there was hot apple cider. You can also microwave popcorn.

Room Tip: Ask for the side away from the parking lot. We were on the parking lot side due to needing a handica...

I've stayed at the Nordic Lodge three times during the past six years, and nothing has changed. The rooms and common areas could use a little updating. The guest rooms are quite dark. I would love to have been able to open the door to the deck to let in fresh air and light, but there was no screen door. I commented on this on a feedback card after last year's stay and was hoping this relatively inexpensive update would have been made, but no such luck. On the positive side, the staff is very friendly and the rooms are clean. The continental breakfast is sufficient to get you started on the day (bananas, apples, yogurt, juice, and mini pastries). The cherry-flavored coffee is always a nice treat! The Nordic Lodge is very close to some of our favorite Door County places in Sister Bay (Mission Grille, Sister Bay Bowl [delicious fish fry], and On Deck Clothing Company.

Room Tip: I prefer a room on the side facing the highway (in spite of some highway noise at night) because it...

This property is not what one imagines staying in when one wants a little Door County respite. I had not made reservations, called hotels on my way up, was at the mercy of hotels with a vacancy and so, Nordic Lodge it would be. They were the only place with vacancies in high season on a Saturday night- this says it all. $109 per night is a deal, true. But it is old, rooms are dark and really dated. Nothing charming here, despite their attemps with the resin adirondack chairs perched out near the ventilation pipes on the sewage septic field on the property. Yes, it is near the towns and the attractions, but don't stay here if you are thinking wine and cherries. This is Schlitz beer and cheese curds.

What a terrific place to stay in Door County-close to all activities yet quiet and private. Very clean-excellent staff-nice pool and hot tub-a perfect retreat for a few days. The grounds were beautiful and the breakfast was just enough to start the day. Coffee available all day and very tasty.

Room Tip: Rooms on the North side face highway 42 and on the South side the parking lot. We preferred the Nor...

We loved this place...large enough to have hotel ammenties but small enough to have a bed and breakfast feel. The personnel were quiet, friendly and most helpful. Delicious Cherry Coffee in the a.m. Nice pool and hot tub for relaxing. If we go back to Door County, we wll definitely stay at the Nordic Lodge.

I was not impressed with this motel. It is of the older style, and to tell the truth I could hardly stand the damp, musty odor. This kind of thing bothers my senses.

Being that it was "in season" the rates were jacked up and really not worth it.

The grounds were very scenic, and thankfully there were no mosquitoes, but if there were, It would have been nice to have a screened door.

Congenial staff, quiet location, clean rooms with firm (not hard) beds, nice pool and hot tub, and free coffee and breakfast. This hotel does everything right. The relaxed, friendly employees are well versed in the area and are quick to respond to tourist questions. Our king room met all of our needs and expectations. The pool, hot tub, and grounds are all clean and well kept. The dining area is more like a living room than a hotel eating area. The lobby coffee (available all day until about 10 PM) is very good and replenished regularly. The fruit and light bakery breakfast items are refreshing but leave plenty of room for lunch at the many good Door County restaurants. We will visit the Nordic Lodge again.

Room Tip: We stayed in a king room on the upper level of the backside of the hotel and heard no road noise.
