“Good Location, Nice rooms”
Reviewed 9 October 2013

Hotel is clean and friendly. The location is great for getting to all local attractions. Would stay here again. We enjoyed the pool and liked the opportunity to use the grills for guests to use. The patio was nice to enjoy the crisp fall evening.

We requested a room near the elevator and were given room 213 which was perfect for us. It was next to the elevator and close to the pool area. The facility is built into a bank so the 2nd floor rooms on the front of the building have balcony's and the rooms on the back of the building have ground level patio's. Our balcony had a small amount of morning sun, but this time of year it would probably be nice to have a room on the other side so you could enjoy the afternoon sun. We had a premier suite. Our suite had one tv which was viewable from the bedroom or the living area, the tv is located above the fireplace and appears a little high for comfortable viewing. The kirchen area was very nice with a small refrigerator and microwave. It also had a full size coffee maker( coffee included) which was very nice. Our suite had a large bathroom with a large, wonderful shower.
They have a light continental breakfast which also was very nice, I don't believe too many lodging facilities in Door County offer this.
The only thing I disliked was that the lighting was not very bright.There are lamps in all of the area's and a light above the kitchen table but none of them seemed to give off much light.
They also have a laundry room which is a big plus if you are staying more than a day or two.
Some previous reviewers have stated it is within walking distance of Sister Bay which may be true but it was a bit further than we cared to walk.
I would highly recommend this lodge. The staff members were always friendly and helpful, which always makes a stay more enjoyable. Great facility and a great location.

My wife and I were extremely pleased with our stay at Birchwood lodge. First, the property is clean and we'll maintained from top to bottom. All the extra touches like solid pine woodwork were not missed on us! The staff is super friendly and helpful, and very welcoming creating a very homey environment.

We rented the premier suite and we're very pleased with all the amenities and little extras from the king size bed, large jacuzzi tub in-room, gas fireplace and even a set of dishes in the small kitchenette! Truly felt like a home away from home. My only small criticism of the room is the tv is visible from the couch, bed, or jacuzzi, but is a bit small and too high up to be comfortable to watch.

The property amenities were very nice. We used the indoor pool, hot tub and sauna and enjoyed them all. We noticed they have gas grills available for use which is very nice. Also there are bikes you can use, and also plenty of games available. There is a family room available where you can watch tv or play games as a group. There is also a video arcade and tennis courts. In short lots to do on property if you want.

This was my first time here and I found the location great. You can easily walk to sister bay to eat or go to the shops or park. Beyond that it is very well situated to a number of the other towns. We spent a lot of time in fish creek which is only 10 minutes away but has lots to do including peninsula state park.

Overall a great lodge with plenty of amenities, friendly staff and great location. Highly recommended!

We have travelled to Door Co. many times but this was our first stay at the Birchwood Lodge in Sister Bay. My husband and I agree that this is the best place that we have stayed in Door Co. Our room was very clean and provided us with what we needed for our stay - small kitchenette, king size bed, and large balcony. We also were very happy with the fitness facility and indoor pool. The people at the front desk were very nice and helpful. My husband forgot his electric toothbrush after we left, and we received it in the mail the next day. Excellent customer service. We will recommend this place to friends and family.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 3rd floor and the south side of the building which gave us nice afternoon sun. Ver...

My time in Birchwood Lodge was absolutely perfect! I was with a couple of friends and the space was more than big enough for all of us and a lot (I really mean a lot) of baggage, Room was very clean and housekeeping service was at the top level. The front desk was incredible helpful and friendly, they helped us a lot to meet Door County better.
I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in Door County, this hotel is a true home away from home:)

Stayed for just one night, but wished we could have stayed longer. The room was simple, spacious, quiet, and clean. Had a small kitchenette, Jacuzzi tub, and comfy bed. The bathroom was spacious and had double sinks. The staff was friendly and helpful. No complaints. Think more woodsy/lodge rather than luxury. It's several blocks away from the main shopping - a little longer than walking distance, but with a car or bike everything is minutes away.
