Just returned from a couple of nights at the Blacksmith Inn. Really enjoyed the personal treatment...starting with check-in, we identified who we were and our host immediately got up and escorted us right to the room...none of the formalities that we are used to when checking into hotels, very much felt like we were a guest in their home. Room was well-appointed...big bathroom, full king bed, fireplace and plenty of room to move about. Would have appreciated a larger television and better wi-fi connection, but these ended up being blessings in disguise as we could focus on some time away for just the two of us. Each of the two houses is set has 8-10 rooms and the lobby in each has 24-hour coffee/tea, cookies, popcorn, granola, etc. Breakfast runs from 8-10am in the lobby of each house and we found it to be a good selection of muffins (excellent, home-baked) cereal, fresh fruit, yogurt, etc. We enjoyed a tandem bike ride on one morning, and a good run down ridge road and the nature trail (accessible at address marker 1982). The proprietors were very friendly and helpful with our questions, including directions for the running routes. Overall an excellent stay. Bailey's harbor was a bit quieter than the other Door County areas, but we did enjoy being able to get away to a more private place to retire for the evening.
