Bay Shore Inn was lovely. Went for a girls' trip and walked into a two bedroom deluxe and went WOW! It was huge and has everything you need! If its your first trip make sure you discuss your room options with the staff and call early for the best choices! Both view and deck size were important to us - and they delivered on both. Although we were busy with Door County fun - it was great to have a home away from home when we came back at the end of the day. And breakfast on the deck every morning overlooking the bay spells v-a-c-a-t-i-o-n. Great amenities, very clean rooms, friendly and helpful staff.

First trip to Door County and had a great time. The Bay Shore Inn is a great property with great amenities. Rooms were very clean and well maintained. Room features were very good quality right down to the little things like the shower head. Bedroom had a flat screen with a great bed. Grounds have a private beach, 2 pools, bar-b-que areas and water sport items that are part of your room rate. We were very happy with our accommodations and will defiantly stay here again.

Room Tip: Indoor pool and fitness center is in north building.

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.
