“Surprisingly nice vacation home”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2013

My parents and I stayed at the Hilltop Inn during a brief visit to Door County. My parents had one bedroom, I had the other, and we all found the unit very comfortable. The door enters into the kitchen area, complete with full size refrigerator and stovetop oven, microwave, full sink, and cabinets to store supplied utensils and groceries. On the other side of the kitchen was the living space, which opened out to a small wooden deck with plastic chairs and side tables. The living area had a round dining table in the corner, which was enough room to eat meals without being too crowded. The fireplace was used each morning to take off the chill, and the couch and armchairs was quite comfortable to sit in during the evening.

The bathrooms were rather spacious, especially upstairs, which had a large whirlpool tub/shower. I meant to use the whirlpool during our stay but never got around to it. It looks like two people could fit in there quite comfortably, if you were going for the romance angle.

The condo's location is just east of the "downtown" area of Fish Creek, so if you want to be right in the action it's not a good location. However, it's just a few minutes' walk if you're in shape, otherwise a quick drive. It's close to Peninsula State Park, too, and makes a good home base for exploring northern Door County, as well as Egg Harbor.

Would I stay there again? You betcha.

Room Tip: If you have a unit close to the highway, you'll hear a lot of road noise, but you'll get ext...

Great value, nice place. Full kitchen. Lots of room for the price. My wife and I go there a few times a year.We have been going there for years, and have always been happy. Lots of things to do in the area. The place is next to Peninsula Park a huge State Park. We always rent bikes in the park and go for a ride along the lake.

We stayed for two nights and got a very good rate for a well-kept two bedroom condo. The living area is downstairs, along with a half bath; and there is a full bath and two bedrooms (queen bed in each) upstairs. TV's in each bedroom and the living room.

The fireplace was well-used and really made the lower level cozy. Although we didn't cook, there is a full kitchen.

Minor complaints/suggestions: 1. The mattress was way too firm for me. 2. A luggage rack would be helpful so that suitcases don't have to sit on the floor. We didn't want to unpack everything into the dresser for a two night stay so ended up putting our suitcase on the bed in the extra bedroom, but this isn't an option if there are people in it. 3. There is no ice machine. The refrigerator makes ice quickly, however you have to push the lever up yourself to begin the process (The health code won't allow the staff to do it). So you either have to buy ice or wait.

Be aware that there is no indoor pool like many Door County condos. (There is a seasonal outside pool, however).

Overall, this was a very pleasant stay and a great value.

Just spent 3 relaxing nights at Hilltop with my husband to celebrate our birthdays. We arrived around 10pm Thursday night and were pleasantly surprised to find our suite was spotlessly clean and cozy - thermostat was set at 70. The next morning we woke to 4 inches of fresh snow, but our walkway and a pathway around our vehicle had been shoveled clear.The kitchen cupboards were well equipped; it had everything we needed to make a few meals. The fireplace and patio windows provided a relaxing space to watch the snow fall. We walked to Peninsula State Park and enjoyed hiking in the serene woodland setting. Also walked to downtown Fish Creek and experienced the famous Friday Night Fish Boil at White Gull Inn. Only hang-up was the local market was closed for the season. Instead of driving to the next town for groceries we bought some bare necessities from the gas station up the road. Next time we'll make a grocery stop before we arrive.

This was our 3rd summer that we stayed at The Hilltop Inn. It was myself (grandma), daughter and son-inlay plus 4 y/o twins and 1 y/o. The condo is clean and roomy and worked out well. The pool was wonderful and enjoyed by all. This was the first year when I made reservations via phone that I felt the customer service was not as good as in past years. That carried over to when we arrived and checked in and when we realized that the pack and play that we paid for was not in our unit. My daughter went to the office and the young man working there was on the computer and would not even turn around to look at her while she asked him about it. At first he said if we paid for it it would be in the unit. She came back without a pack and play. I gave her the receipt which showed we paid for it and we went back to the office and finally got it. I might stay here again, but it may be time to try something new. I just wasn't feeling like they cared if we stayed there or not this time.

We had two couples that stayed in a two bedroom condo at the Hilltop Inn Saturday, Sunday and Monday that past week. It was rainy and cold nearly the entire time we were in Fish Creek so we spent more time in the condo than planned, but found it to be very comfy. The condo was very clean, with two bedrooms (the master is large), with one full bath, one half bath, and an extra sink and vanity in the master bedroom. The two bedrooms and full bath are on the second floor. The full bath has a nice shower and a whirlpool tub and is very large. There is a large half bath on the lower level, as well as a full kitchen with nice cabinets and a living room with attractive furnishings - a couch, two comfy chairs, and an awesome fireplace for those chilly nights. There is also an eating area with a table and four chairs included in the living area. There are three televisions, with one in the living room and one in each bedroom. The television in the living area could be larger. It is fairly small. There is a DVD player and movies for rent for $3 in the front office. We found the beds to be very comfortable, with a decent selection of pillows and extra blankets. The master bedroom has sliding doors to a balcony, and the living room has sliders to a backyard patio. There is a nice grill available for cooking out. The owners provide about everything you could use. There were even coffee filters and paper towels in our condo. You would need to provide your own coffee and food. The only problem might be the noise that comes from the bar and grill next door on Saturday night when people are outside, expecially when you have a two-bedroom where the master is off the back. The couple in the other room did not notice it. People talking and shouting until 2:00 a.m., when they closed. I do not rate the Inn lower for that because they really have no control over that, and it wasn't out of control - just a bit annoying. The guy in the front office was really nice, and we never needed anything extra. Parking right in front of your own room. The location is really pretty good. It is a short walk (about 1/2-3/4 mile at most) to the main area of Fish Creek, but there are shops just across from the Inn too. Nice place and nice and helpful staff. Plenty of room for 4 adults. We found that their photos are very representative of what you will find.

Room Tip: Rooms with bedrooms on the front side are quieter.

My family and I stayed at your establishment again last Fri and Sat night and found it to be absolutely wonderful. Clean rooms, spacious pool area and helpful staff. We also enjoyed the great folk band next door at Sonny's which featured (Susan from the TV. show Seinfeld) go figure in Fish Creek, Door County :) Outstanding experience at both places! See you next year! Carol Abbott
