Reviewed September 27, 2012

We stayed at the Open Hearth Lodge for 2 nights with our son, daughter-in-law, 2 month old grandchild and a dog. The rooms are large and IMMACULATE. The location is good, lovely grounds, nice continental breakfast, pool, whirlpool and friendly staff. We plan to return.

My sister and I went on a girl's weekend to see some lighthouses. We made no reservations. It was around 8:30P when we decided to stop for the evening. This location was advertised in a book we picked up. It appears they have recently remodeled. The room was nicely decorated with a lodge feel and the room was large. It has a huge backyard with a swing if you are traveling with children. It has an indoor pool and hot tub. Over all this was a very comfortable and pleasant hotel to stay at and I would stay here again. They do have a free breakfast but not until 7:30A and we had to leave prior to that to catch the Washington Island Ferry. The owner did give me an english muffin and they had coffee in the rooms. This is a good location if you are planning on taking the early ferry to Washington Island.

This place has everything going well for it. Big rooms, a pool, and even a backyard with a firepit and patio. The price was right and we enjoyed our stay very much.

The only reason I ranked it down 1 point is because we kept getting gruff unfriendly service from the woman who worked the desk. Everything seemed like an inconvenience to her.

And breakfast is a little miniscule, so plan on either stocking up or eating out.

Love this place and can't wait to come back and stay again! It has a perfect location in Sister Bay located just a minute or two right down the road, so you don't have to deal with the big city! Looks alot nicer than what the pictures describe it as. Nice pool (that's not cold) and a very nice whirlpool in an indoor gazebo type buliding. The lobby offers board games and a fire place for the cold winters. They also offer a great selection of menus from surronding restaurants. The rooms themselves are nice and cozy with comfy beds. We had no problems what so ever with our room! Check-in and check-out were really easy, no hassles! The outside of the place is amazing! Great for a big family because they have a huge backyard and a nice little playground for the kids. Theres also a nice fire pit and a grill for everyone to use. We also discovered a short walk way they made through the brush in the way back of the yard. Nice little nature walk :) Definelty reccomend this place to anyone on a budget with great amenities!

Room Tip: If you want the basic room, just take the lodge room with two beds. Perfect!

Stayed here in Spring 2012 and it was great. It was a little before tourist season started so not everything was open, but the staff at Open Hearth Lodge knew what was open and suggested amazing places to eat.

Room Tip: 2nd floor at the top of the stairs was great. It's a king whirlpool.

We stayed at the Open Hearth for several days the week after Christmas. We picked this location because it was central (close to Penisula State Park, downtown Fish Creek, Sister Bay, etc) and the indoor swimming pool. The hotel is very "Door County" meaning North Woods decor, wonderful friendly staff, flavored coffees available, and tasty baked goods in the morning. We stayed in their suite (only $109/night being off season) which was outstanding. It had two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a nice sitting area with couch and recliner, electric fireplace, three TVs, one DVD player in the sitting area, wireless throughout, kitchenette/small table with full refrigerator, sink, plates/silverware, coffee maker, hot plate (with a saucepan & skillet), and microwave. One of the bathrooms had a two person whirlpool tub. I did see one of the king rooms (which were going for $69/night) and it looked very nice also...bed, refrig, microwave (I think) and a comfy couch. The grounds were beautiful, the indoor pool/ whirlpool was a nice touch being that it was cold outside, and nice little walking trail. I saw a swingset in the back and lots of room if the kids needed to run. We would definitely come back again!!

My parents live in Door County in the summer and we usually stay with them in the warmer months, but when we visit Door County in the winter, we stay here. The rooms are not luxurious, but they are comfortable--perfect if you have kids. They serve bakery goods each morning, and the owners are always willing to help you if you need recommendations for places to eat and/or play. The indoor pool and hot tub is perfect after a day in the snow!
