“Excellent, kid-friendly, we've stayed (and will stay) many times!”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

My family and I have been coming to Westwood Shores 1-2 times per year for the last four years. Always the perfect weekend. The suite layout is great for our family (we always have a little one who seems to need a nap). The courtyard is beautiful, and both pools are great. We love the location because it's in Door County, but not too far up. There is no onsite restaurant, but there are tons of places that deliver, and we always bring food for the kitchen anyway (easier with the kids). The things I love most about this place is even the weekends when all the rooms are completely sold out, it's really rare to see other people. I'm not joking, my family and I comment on it each time - you might see a couple of people in the pool, or a few people walking the grounds, but never any big groups. The staff is very friendly, and the same people have been there for years - you start recognizing them. Food tip - head over to the Nightengale - about ten minutes away, amazing steak/seafood dinner, excellent value, in an old school supper club type ambiance - and completely kid-friendly!

Room Tip: We are partial to the end Premier suites, but the regular suites with balconies are great too.

Wonderful resort with great accomodations in a gorgeous setting. 2 bedroom suite was large, clean and extremely comfortable. Views from the room were breathtaking. Staff was incredibly friendly and helpful with activity/restaurant suggestions. Can't wait to go back again next year!

This is our third year at Westwood (and in Door Cty), and we will be back year after year. The kids love the two pools, sandbox and the beach. We love the room, the sunsets, and casual atmosphere. Staff are friendly and accommodating, and being able to do laundry before going home makes life so much easier. Love having a place to call our home away from home on our summer vacation. Getting games and movies from the front desk helps keep the evenings fun, and those sunsets....oh those sunsets. We will be back, for sure.

Room Tip: With small kids, a two bedroom is a great deal.

This was our third trip at this resort and unfortunately probably our last. The first year we were here, they put us in their best suite with a wrap-around deck and view of the pool. This year because we reserved our room on line, the suite was nowhere as nice and had a tiny deck with three chairs and a table with no view of the pool. The view in the room was also not as scenic along with not as roomy which is a disadvantage for a family of 6. The staff seemed snippy and not helpful which was different from the previous years.

Room Tip: Make reservations by phone and ask specifically for the premier suite with a wrap-around deck, my pr...

Have visited Door County before, but this was our first stay at Westwood, and we loved it!! The staff is friendly, the views of the lake are wonderful, the entire resort is pristine... was surprised to learn that it is 16 years old. Will definitely recommend to friends.

Room Tip: The second and third floors have the best views

Westwood is relatively small, therefore not crowded. The property is in excellent condition, inside and out. Lovely view of the lake. Excellent value for the price, convenient location, definitely would recommend staying there.
