Old tired out cabin. Doors that wouldn't shut in both bedrooms. Worn out furniture and not enough seating for 4 people. Reservations for 4. Grossly over priced. Two coffe mugs. There was one love seat and no chairs. Two kitchen chairs. This was the worst place I have ever stayed out. Pictures do not much the ads.

Room Tip: Don;t stay here.

The accommodations in the resort were awful. Our room was the size of a closet. We felt like steamed lobsters because of the radiator heaters in the room. Aside from the obvious safety concerns about this heating system, we resorted to leaving the windows open day and night despite seasonal temps for October down in the 30's at night.
The linens were stained and faded. The decor was somewhere between 1970 and 1980, with furnishings from the 1960's. Chipping paint fell from the windows as you opened them. The bed was like a board with a hole in the middle. It did not appear any $ was invested in updates or repairs in at least 30 or 40 years. The only bright side of this stay was the location, on the waters edge of Lake Michigan and close to shopping and restaurants. Extremely overpriced considering the poor quality of the accommodations!

Room Tip: No options for a "good" room in this resort.....and I use the word "resort" loos...

We've been going to Alpine for close to 20 years now. We love it for its vintage appeal, views of the lake, staff, relaxed vibe. That being said, my feelings are always mixed. This year my sons wanted to borrow some free bikes but the ones available were unusable: rusty chains, kickstand rusted solid making the bike unusable. (They could probably get 20 bikes cheap on Craigslist if they wanted.) Bathrooms and floors of the rooms are never that clean, which makes it really, really difficult for me to to tip the housekeeping (and I ALWAYS generously tip housekeepers). Beds and pillows are uncomfortable; I've never slept well here. Comforters are scratchy. TVs are old and clunky (cheap flat panels are crazy cheap right now and would save tons of room on their dresser drawers).

I know it costs a lot to run hotels and given Alpine's location, I can only imagine what the nightly rate would be if this hotel were fixed up to its fullest potential.

So what to say....we love the Alpine for all its charm, but are very careful when making recommendations. Our best description: it's like camping, but in a hotel!

To us, the Alpine is a wonderful trip to a simpler time, like visiting a favorite Aunt. It's about family, connection, and fun things to do together when you need time away from the clanging metropolis. Swim (pool or nearby beach), watch the sunset on Adirondack or rocking chairs, play ping pong or a board game, borrow a bike or walk on the trails, breathe fresh air, have a quiet drink and meet new friends in the two nostalgic bars... no rush, just enjoy!

If you're looking for 5-star marble bathrooms, indoor exercise in a gym full of treadmills, and a cadre of 24-hour a day servants this is probably not the place for you. If you're looking for a place to reconnect with and enjoy the people you love, we recommend the Alpine highly!

Room Tip: We love the Bay View rooms, also you can pay a few dollars more for a room refrigerator if you want...

We've been going to Alpine for 7-8 years now. We have tried other Door County hotels/motels, and while they were nice, Alpine is so amazingly comforting and friendly, you feel like you are at home with a big family! The owners and staff are always helpful, they have something going on in the lobby every night, and the lake front location and the view from the incredibly large veranda is amazing! Add to this several types of accomodations to choose from, a beach just a short 1/4 mile walk away, and a short mile trip into Egg Harbor itself (Chocolate Chicken for coffee and ice cream, and Shipwrecked for great burgers and beer!), and who would want to go anywhere else! It may look a bit outdated, but that just adds to the charm and makes you feel like you are visitng a fmily establishment that truly cares!

Room Tip: A bit of a secret is...they also have a few cabins up in the town of Egg Harbor itself! Your own li...

The view - nothing better than seeing majestic Lake Michigan. You can even sit on the lodge porch and rock and watch the waves. There is a big entertainment room where you can read, play games or cards. The staff- beyond wonderful and friendly. The food - very nice for breakfast, didn't try any other meal. The cottages - NO WAY!

This was the only place I could find a 3-bedroom and I had heard it was "rustic" and that would have been okay. Our cottage had a fabulous view facing the lake. A welcoming park area for picnicking. But the cottage "Wisconsin" smelled so bad of mold that I could barely breathe. Two sons are allergic and they were stuffed up for the entire weekend. In addition, the front, bathroom, & bedroom doors all stuck and the sound of opening them carried throughout - if one person is up the entire cottage is up. I don't know if the other cottages have the mold problem. Saw alot of kids having a ball swimming, biking (free bikes) and laughing with their families. I would not go back unless I stayed in the lodge.

I did look at the rooms in the lodge and they were also simple and small, but would be adequate because they did not seem to smell of mold. Old style vacationing for families. So close to Egg Harbor you could bike or walk if necessary.

Room Tip: Pick more expensive room in the lodge and you'll be happier.

We've been all around the USA, Europe, Asia, South America, etc. staying in the best and not-so-good hotels everywhere... So how does the Alpine rank? Fantastically nostalgic with wonderful furnishings and ambience. Here's what I like... No flat screens, no complex-wide internet, no bellmen, bad cell reception, few snobs... This is not a glitzy resort, but that is EXACTLY what our family loved about the Alpine. Here's what they have... A nice pool, a great beach down the road with kayaks, windsurfing, beautiful shoreline, nice pier, great view of Lake Michigan (Green Bay), nice golf course, nice cottages, families hanging out, listenting to old time bands, playing scrabble, ping pong, pool, cards, reading, playing tennis, picnicing, etc. If you're expecting to be pampered and treated like royalty, you're in the wrong place. It's clean, our kingsize bed (room 311) had a pillow-top mattress and was super comfortable, had an adjoining room (313) which was nice for the kids. This was our first visit, exactly what we wanted, and we will be back. Boy, am I glad we didn't pay attention to the poor reviews posted here!
