The Harbor Light Inn
Ranked #1 of 5 Ellison Bay B&B and Inns
Reviewed 20 July 2009

My husband and I just returned from a weekend at the Harbor House Inn. We stayed in the lighthouse suite, which was very clean and comfortable. The continental breakfast was good and included coffee, juice, pastries, yogurt, cereal and oatmeal. The staff was very friendly. We did not personally see any rooms in the main house, but we would definitely return to the lighthouse suite again.

From the outside this looks very well kept and charming. Beautiful Victorian houses and gardens. Inside, carpet needs replacing badly and charm is lost when tacky art and plastic flowers decorate the rooms. Generally I felt the property wasn't clean or fresh. The sauna was a tiny closet and there was dust and wood chips on the floor making me wonder "how long has it been since this has been used?!" The plastic blinds on the windows were dusty, carpet in need of a vacuum and there was hair in the shower drain from a previous guest. GROSS! There was even a note in the room with an envelope to leave the housekeeper a tip! Pretty blatant. Needless to say, if there is hair from someone else in my shower, there will be no tip.
Wireless internet was not working either.
Breakfast consisted of coffee, juice, bagels, danish & watermelon. I had the impression B&B's typically had a nice home cooked hot breakfast served by the owners. Not here.

This was the 4th summer my husband and I have gone to Door County for the weekend. We have stayed in Fish Creek, Egg Harbor, and Ephraim before, so we wanted to go a little bit further north to Gill's Rock/Ellison Bay this time. The Harbor House Inn was reasonably priced (we payed $129 per night for our room), and the room and property in general were very well kept and clean. The property is adorable, with fun extra bonuses like a sauna, hot tub, and a gazebo (with a wood burning fireplace next to it for the colder months). They also had bike rentals on the property, which was convenient. The breakfast, while tasty, was not the "homemade" breakfast that we have gotten at other bed and breakfasts in the Door County area. It consisted of mostly store bought items, althought there was also the option to request pancakes one day, and waffles the next (these portions were smaller sized). The couple that owns the property are there on the premises and are present at breakfast. The one drawback of the Inn was the attitude of the female owner. She may have just been having a bad weekend, but she was rather short with us when we were asking questions about the Washington Island area, and seemed annoyed that we would think to ask her for recommendations of things to do/places to go. She almost seemed inconvenienced that we were there, and wanted to get us "in and out" as quickly as possible. The gentlman owner of the Inn (Mike?), however, was VERY nice, and made us feel very welcome. In general, we would recommend it as a great place to stay.
