We really enjoyed our stay at Bridgeport. Some friends suggested we stay further into the peninsula, but we trusted our fellow TripAdvisor reviewers and stayed here. We were not wrong.
We have three kids, so we never really fit into a standard room. We booked a two bedroom room here and it was great. Two kids in the queen and one of the sofa sleeper meant we had the king to ourselves. It was also handy to have two showers available. The room was clean and comfortable. Could it have used an update to the decor? Probably, but it wasn't a big issue to us.
The resort itself is right on the lake, which means nice walks around the marina. It is also very close to the Maritime museum, which was great, and a number of good restaurants. We enjoyed walkting to and eating at the Bluefront Cafe, the Steel Bridge Cafe, and Sonny's pizza. You even get a discount at some restaurants if you show your room key!
If you have kids, you know that having a pool is important. Bridgeport does not disappoint. The outdoor pool was a little chilly, but still fun on hot days. The indoor pool complex had something for everyone - a zero depth entry for our 4 year old, a basketball hoop for our 9 year old, and a large space to just swim for our 11 year old. We could keep an eye on all of the action from the spa / hot tub.
If we venture back to Door County, we would definitely stay here again.
