“beauty and value”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

A hidden gem for people who are not overly concerned about up to the minute decor.This place has value, cleanliness, good service and pleasant surroundings. Yes the interiors are more motel 1990s however little touches- stenciling and cast iron chairs with a lake view right outside the door are OK by me.
A great grocery with homemade sausages and local color.next door.
margaritas and Mex down the the street antiques and great crafty gifts all walking oh the beach goes on for miles.n

This is not a fancy place, but it is comfortable, clean, and pleasant. The owner was very helpful and kind. I love that it is in an out of the way town without the tourist traffic. It is so quiet--but everything there is to do is a quick drive.

The motel is very small and basic, but is very clean. The view of Lake Michigan from the motel is outstanding. Jacksonport is a very small town, but is close to other towns with a better selection of restaurants and things to do. I recommend this motel to someone who wants to save money and will be using the room just for a base or for sleeping, not as a retreat. I didn't see the interior of the cottages, but they looked very nice and more suitable for couples or families staying for more than a night or two. I imagine they're as clean as the hotel rooms.

The place looks quite dated and needs some TLC. There are a couple of things that don't cost a lot but would go a long way to keeping things clean and newer looking. Deck railing paint for example. It's cheap and would take owners a couple of hours to fix-- even if you have to do it each year. Peeling paint is really not cool. The interior room decor has not updated in what appears to be quite a few years. If nothing else new bedding is in order. There wasn't a hair dryer or coffee maker. I thought it odd because I don't think I've stayed anywhere without those basics. The restaurant wasn't open and there weren't any breakfast items-- even at the beginning part of August so going up or down the road was a requirement. Practically all small establishments offer "continental breakfasts".
Because things are dated its hard to keep them clean and the place shows it. I think a little updating and the place could be a lot nicer and guest friendly.

We've vacationed at the Square Rigger for the last 20 years. Elizabeth is an excellent hostess. The rooms and cabins are very clean and well loved. You're steps from the private, quiet beach and the cool breeze at night. The Square Rigger also has the best fish boil and scenic view. Be sure to arrive very early to take advantage of the view and the atmosphere before the boil and dinner. This is the "quiet side" of Door Co and you're only minutes away from the other side with shopping, restaurants, outdoor movie theater, etc. Bailey's Harbor down the road has plenty of "eats" to and a beautiful Catholic church. Take the challenge...leave the flat screen tv's, ipads, phones, internet at home and "quiet" yourself in this one of a kind setting and go for long walks on the beach and read a book (not a kindle :).

My daughter, granddaughter and I stayed in the 3 bedroom cottage this past weekend. As in the past the accommodations were sparkling clean, very spacious, kitchen was stocked with pots, pans, dishes and even plastic wine glasses. The sand from the lake comes right up to the front door. You hear the waves morning and evening. The sunrise and sunset are beautiful. Everything you need for a wonderful vacation.

Room Tip: The two and three bedroom on the lake has the best views.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Get ready to spark your nostalgia - and cox your kids into abandoning their video games (shhh... you don't have to tell them we have free WiFi!) Share all the ingredients of a classic American summer: 286 feet of shoreline for swimming, sailing, fishing, scuba-diving and sandcastle construction + a large, shaded yard perfect for napping, reading, and swinging to your heart's content. Located in the heart of Jacksonport, we wan you to enjoy the atmosphere of our small, quite village. Bring home sweet treats like Door county Fudge at Bley's grocery next door, pick up some fresh ingredients from the Tuesdays Farmer's market to create family memories around the open kitchen inside our cottages, or bury your feet in the sand while you cook kabobs at the fire pit. For the adventurous at heart, we have a historical sunken pier in the waters just off the beach and 3 shipwrecks in the National Historic Wharf complex. There are magnificent hiking trails nearby at Whitefish Dunes State Park and Cave Point County Park. Plus we have a wonderful lakefront beach park just a block away, the perfect summer stroll. Door County offer amazing scenery in every season. Daffodils are already popping up which means the cherry and apple blossoms of spring are sure to come soon. Join one of the many Spring Blossom Trolley tours, take a 45-minute hike around our favorite Jacksonport loop (free maps are available in your room), or take a DIY-trip around to the many lighthouses, orchards and festivals around the county. After your voyages, you can be back in 15 minutes to enjoy a nice glass of wine on the beach and watch the sunset colors wrap around the sky with a crackling fire. All the comforts of home await you with tvs, showers, baths and electric heat. Then wake up to a spectacular sunrise and enjoy coffee on the beach. ... more   less
