“A great surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2013

Visiting Door County July 4th weekend and could not find a room anywhere. At the last minute the Chamber referred us to this property that had just reopened after being closed for years. Although we were skeptical we figured it would be an adventure. Turns out the place was perfect and very reasonably priced. The location near Baileys Harbor was also nice - away from all the crowds on the other side of Door County. We really appreciated that the woman who answers the phone and seemed to be in charge of the whole rehab was totally honest about the status of the place and was very friendly and accommodating. Although the hotel was still eerily empty, it seemed totally cleaned up and our rooms were equipped with beautiful new beds and linens and TVs. We met the young couple who purchased the property and it was fun hearing some of the history and some of their plans for its future. We look forward to tracking the progress and visiting again. A great find with a great future!

As the owners of Maxwelton Braes, we would like to thank you for staying with us and I am glad we had a room available for you. We are so pleased you had a wonderful vacation. We certainly welcome your feedback. We are continuously trying to improve upon even the good things we have going. We are so proud of the history of Maxwelton. We have been fortunate to have an enthusiastic staff to help us to get things up and running. We are expanding our staff this season to serve our guests better.
A few updates for you...we filled the empty crumbling pool in and it is now a wonderful patio for outdoor parties and wedding receptions. Unfortunately, repairing the pool and bringing it up to the new codes was cost prohibitive. We put a wonderful gas fire pit and seating outside just off the porch. We also resurfaced 2 lighted tennis and 4 pickle ball courts. We are excited this season to bring in an old Baileys Harbor favorite restaurant to provide breakfast to our guests, golfers and neighbors. Sandpiper Upstairs at Maxwelton Braes returns to Baileys Harbor and will be serving breakfast 7 days a week. Pasta Vino will continue to serve fabulous dinners in our main level restaurant. Hurry back and enjoy!
