“Best place to stay in Door County!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2011

Have been coming up to Door County since the 50's. Have tried other places in the past but none compares to this. Centrally located, and the view across Eagle Harbor to Peninsula State Park is breath-taking. (See the sunset photo attached). I have one HUGE complaint. It was so good, I didn't want to leave. Making reservations for next year eased the pain a little. See at you at the Edge!!!!

We were scheduled to stay at The Edgewater Resort, but we were called due to a power outage. The whole town was without power! But, my husband and I had plans for our anniversary. The manager called us and relocated us to a hotel with power. We will always return to The Edgewater Resort for great service and we were just sorry that we missed out of a stay at Edgewater. Thank you, Bryan! See you next time!

Room Tip: We have always stayed in the honeymoon studio. Love it!

I can't say enough wonderful things about Edgewater Resort! The staff was wonderful, some of most courtesy and helpful hotel staff I have had the pleasure of talking to. The rooms were so spacious, clean. I was very impressed walking in just how well maintained and clean the room was. We stayed in a Deluxe King suite and loved the big comfy king size bed. Another huge plus was beautiful view of the water. We were able to watch the sunsets right outside our door, there is also a cute little private beach area right across the street with benches so you can enjoy the water side a little closer. Edgewater is in the perfect location to walk to all the restaurants and shops. Wilson's and The Chef's Hat were are favorites! We weren't able to go to the fish boil but did talk to Earl, the "Boil master", and it will be on out list for next time!

This was our fist time to the Door County area and the whole experience was wonderful! Relaxing, beautiful scenery, great food and friendly people. We are already planning and looking forward to our return next year! :)

The room had the perfect "cottage" look and the view was wonderful. We enjoyed an evening cocktail on the balcony and watched the sunset, it couldn't have been any nicer. The room was spacious, clean and very comfortable.

Room Tip: The second floor gets you above the fence enclosing the pool which improves the view. Other restaura...

Room 102, we could hardly walk around the bed. The carpet was worn and not very clean. First time to Door county and we were surprised that the main road ran between our "waterfront view" and the porch outside our room. The traffic and a porch light kept us awake at night. The resort itself seemed nice compared to some in the area.
We didn't see any huge rooms as described by other reviewers.
We didn't see many staff members. The one in the office who checked us in was pleasant. Luckily we kept busy and didn't spend alot of time in our room.

Thank you for your recent visit to the Edgewater Resort. We were sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your stay. Our carpets are professionally cleaned frequently. During the summer time, at times HWY 42 can be busier than normal but most reviewers have commented that the water view is well worth it. For future reference we do have rooms set behind our outdoor pool area that would be further back from the main road. Some of the rooms on the first floor set behind the pool would also have kitchen tables to give you more space in the living room area. Thanks again for your review, we do hope you will consider our Resort again in the near future.

This was our first stay, and the resort was within walking distance of many of our favorite spots. But what we noticed most , was that this is, hands down, the cleanest accomodations we have ever stayed at! Our suite was immaculate and we felt totally at home and comfortable. Definitely a repeat. We're anxious to come back with our family.

This was our second year at the Edgewater! Once again we had the most amazing time!!!!! The staff at the Edgewater are truly the most amazing and friendly people... from the manager Brian at the front desk (always smiling and ready to serve), to the housekeeping staff (providing extra towel and coffee!), to the folks working on the landscaping (who held the sprinkler as I walked by... so I wouldn't get wet) and the waitstaff (friendly and smiling)... all the employees we so sweet to my husband and I and our teenage kids! The rooms were immaculate!!! The fish boil was the best we have ever had... and we have had quite a few over the years!
Can't wait to go back next year!!!! We used to try different hotels in Door County over the years... no need to do that any more! The Edgewater is absolutely our favorite hotel!!!!
