“We'll be back.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013

My wife and I recently spent 3 days at the pond lodge. We arrived on a very hot day but the air conditioner took good care of that. Beautiful Chestnut tree to keep us cool in the day and company at night. We did see the fawns and the doe as well as rabbits, squirrels, owls and cardinals. One thing we didn't see (or feel) as opposed to our home in MN was mosquitoes. None. Perfect.

Selecting a place to stay by internet can be a daunting experience. We arrived, not fully knowing what to expect. The first thing that surprised us was the flower garden. The pictures do not begin to do it justice. We were greeted in a friendly manner and directed to our convenient room. The staff (and the other guests we happened upon) were pleasant and helpful. There is a hot tub tucked away in the trees to soothe the aches of tramping about. We were given many helpful suggestions, which led to more helpful suggestions, and even got a certificate for a free wine tasting. We would definitely return again. The only disappointment was the breakfast. Cold cereal and store-bought donuts were not at all enticing, so we went and got breakfast nearby. It would be easy enough to add some bagels or something for guests who don't really want all that sugar first thing. Then it would be perfect.

Could not have asked for a better place to stay. We were treated like family. The staff was outstanding and the place is so clean and well cared for. Tucked in the quiet woods yet so close to everything. The staff bent over backwards to give us tips on good places to eat and different things to do. Can't wait for another girls getaway to stay at the Coachlite Inn.

We just got back from a Door County weekend where we stayed at the Coachlite Inn. We stayed in the Lodge - it was really good and worked well for 2 grandparents, mom and 2 little ones. The wooded setting is really "Door County" and access to all the towns up/down Rt 42 was great.
The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I think they even arranged for 2 fawns for our viewing pleasure (mom must have been in the trees) ... see the picture. We'd recommend Coachlite for anyone travelling up to Door County.

The Coachlite Inn is a cozy place to stay in a wooded setting just off Highway 42 in Sister Bay. It doesn't have a pool but it has a great hot tub under a gazebo with surrounding trees. The rooms are a bit small and the baths are Harvest Gold in color but clean and comfortable. It has a small breakfast area. The owner is very helpful and can give you great tips on places to visit and nearby restaurants. You can tell he cares about the place. The grounds are nicely landscaped. We stayed several nights at the Coachlite on a bicycle trip and it's very bicycle friendly. We felt quite at home there.

Room Tip: There are no elevators. If you have large luggage pieces or can't do steps well consider the fir...

A friend and I visited Door County two weeks ago. I hadn't been there since I was a young child, so I had no specific "favorite" restaurants or things to do. The staff at Coachlite was very friendly and helpful - making recommendations, printing festival schedules, and even making restaurant reservations for us. The grounds were kept up beautifully, and even though we always got back too late to use the hot tub, it looked very clean and inviting. The rooms were clean, spacious and "homey". We would definitely stay at Coachlite again!
