The Bay Breeze Resort was chosen by my wife and I due to its convenient location to excellent dining and shopping areas in Fish Creek, Ephraim and Sister Bay. The grounds were nicely maintained and the staff was very friendly and helpful. My wife and I reserved a luxury suite which was clean and roomy and appointed with a fireplace, whirlpool tub, two televisions, a mini refrigerator, small kitchen sink and a coffee maker. The outdoor pool and jacuzzi looked inviting but we passed on trying them out due to cold weather conditions during our stay. We did enjoy walking across the street to the private beach to relax by Eagle Harbor.
There are two primary types of lodging in Door County - bed & breakfast inns and hotels/motels. The Bay Breeze definitely places in the latter category which doesn't mean it's a bad thing if that's what you're looking for. Our impression of the Bay Breeze is that it is better suited for a family getaway than a romantic couples retreat. Our room provided all the amenities we wanted but it had a distinct hotel flavor to it that was lacking a warm, comfortable feel. Newbie couples visiting Door County looking for a cozy place to stay might prefer a traditional bed & breakfast inn. If you're bringing the family though, the Bay Breeze is easy to recommend.
