My wife and I stayed at the Bay Shore Inn for our anniversary. We usually stay in Fish Creek but thought we would give this one a try and we were not disappointed. We had a one bedroom suite and it was great. Large kitchen, whirlpool tub, living room and a balcony with a view of the water. Everyone that we encountered was very friendly and knowledgeable about the local area.

I was a little nervous because it seemed off the beaten path but now realize that is the appeal. It is a short drive to 3rd avenue in Sturgeon bay about 1.5 miles which is where all of the restaurant, bars and shops are.

We will definately be back!

Absolutely loved our stay! It is so peaceful and beautiful. Stayed in 318 with two kings and huge wraparound deck with direct bay view. Used the complimentary paddleboats kayaks and bikes. Used both heated outdoor pool and indoor pool and whirlpool. Had fire pit going every night. Front desk very friendly and helpful. No complaints at all and will return next summer. We felt like we had the place to ourselves most of our stay and enjoyed the lack of crowds and traffic.The only reason I didn't give 5 star is there is no restaurant on the property. Short drive into town offered a few options and of course you can drive north thru door county to the many quaint bay side villages for food and sunset concerts!

Room Tip: Ask for direct view of bay upper end units.

We two couples shared a two bedroom suite for two nights - not long enough. It was perfect: accommodations ideal. We had light breakfast on porch overlooking Sturgeon Bay. Indoor and outdoor pool, boats, sand beach, bicycles and more available free. Grounds were excellent, lots of room for strolling and providing awesome sunsets. Library of DVDs and books. The list goes on. We look forward to a longer return visit.

Room Tip: Lower level premium suites provide easy access outside. But most rooms have a view.

Not only were we surprised that the facility was nicer than we expected, we were also very impressed with the great customer service we received. When we made reservations, they were out of one bedroom suites, so they upgraded us to a two bedroom for our first night at no additional cost. The views are gorgeous and it provides a true remote feeling. This would be a great option for a longer stay as they kichettes were full stocked with the basics. We will definitely stay here again.

We just finished up a 4 night stay right after Memorial Day Weekend and had a fantastic time again. Having just been at the Bay Shore Inn last Labor Day it was so delightful to be back so soon! We already have our suite booked for 2014! Can't ask for a nicer place with such a great staff. We enjoy the two bedroom suite and have a wonderful view of the Sturgeon Bay ship canal as it is so peaceful being on the water.

Room Tip: All the suites are great and spacious! Excuse my rating on the restaurant as there is no restaurant...

Just got back from a two night stay with some girl friends. I would defintely go back to this resort. The suite was spacious, well equipped and every clean. The view of the bay was lovely and the grounds were well kept. My only complaint was that our room didn't get serviced with clean towels and we had to ask for more. Some how we were overlooked by the housekeeping staff and they were apologetic. The location is out of town a bit but we didn't mind being away from the busy areas. We drove to the tip and Door Co. and back, stopping to shop in many of the towns. My next visit will be longer than two days so I can spend more time relaxing at this lovely resort. I will ride the bikes more and try out some of the other great amenities the Bay Shore Inn has to offer.

We rented 2 bedroom unit. Huge suite. Very comfortable. Nice view. Very enjoyable. 3 flat screen TV's. VHS/DVD combo. Would certainly consider returning. A little far from attractions. Would probably try to find something similar a little further North. But this place would be hard to match.
