I really was pleasantly surprised by the Bay Shore Inn. It so far is my favorite place to stay in Sturgeon Bay. I had stayed one night at Bridgeport and one night here and whilst I would stay at Bridgeport again, this is definilty my preferred place.

It is right on the lake and has and you can watch the beautiful sunset right from either your room or the lawn, or the beach.

I loved that it has its own little beach area, fire pit, children's playground. Its great for families. Had it was not as new as Bridgeport but definilty clean. Would stay here again.

Room Tip: It does not have its own restaurant so i could not rate. No room service. I will put pics up at a l...

This was the first time my wife and I visited Door County from Chicago. We chose the Bay Shore Inn because the varous internet sites we looked at gave a strong impression of a clean palce with many amenities. It did not disappoint. The facility consists of condos where the owners rent them out via the Bay Shore property manager. Done very well. Unit was lovely, looking right down onto the small beach and pool. Sunsets were SPECTACULAR! Rival anything I have seen in Hawaii. All in all, lovely place and would recomend it for families as it is kid friendly.

I highly recommend the Bay Shore Inn. Located on a quiet, tree lined road north of Sturgeon Bay away from the traffic and noise of Door County yet a short drive to any of the most popular DC locations. The rooms are immaculate, sunsets magnificent and the property very well maintained. We had a relaxing weekend and will come back again.

Room Tip: Be certain you can see the sunset from your room or balcony.

Spent a relaxing long weekend in a one bedroom suite. The buildings and grounds were well maintained. The suite was well appointed, clean, and comfortable. We enjoyed spending time on our patio with a great water view. Complementary use of boats and bikes was a great perk!

This was a really nice location for short trips to other parts of Door County, and is close by many restaurants, bars, and shops in Sturgeon Bay.

What a nice place! Pretty grounds, nice amenities, and immaculate. Great view of sunset. The staff is very helpful. There are kayaks, paddle boats, and bikes to use at no cost. However, you need to bring shampoo and lotion. The units are privately owned and well-stocked. The one bedroom is a little tight for space in the bedroom and deck is tiny, but the living/dining/kitchen is roomy and open. They also have an indoor and outdoor pool and fitness room.

Room Tip: You can ask for a room with a larger balcony.

Nice view overlooking Green Bay, in a nicely secluded area. My wife and I and her brother and his wife shared a very nicely equipped two-bedrooom suite with full kitchen, spacious living area and bedrooms. Free bikes, paddle boats, kayaks, grill, firewood, etc. Our only complaint was that there wasn't a bike trail nearby and not a lot of room for bikes on Bay Shore Drive. Perfect for a three day weekend getaway.

Room Tip: Try to get one of the two bedroom suites on the end next to the woods, if you want maximum privacy.
