“Perfect for the older crowd”
Reviewed 16 June 2008

We were in Door County for our anniversary and celebrating our engagement and thought the Country House "Resort" looked like a place to relax and enjoy Door County. Upon arriving the grounds were well maintained but it was obvious there was no view of the water from the room. We still checked in and got our key. We were told to go around to the back side of the building to our "Specialty room". The moment we walked in it was quite obvious this was not the place we would be celebrating anything. The room still had 70's style decor in royal blue and gold. The towels looked as if they were someone's old cast offs. The room smelled as if it had not been used in months and was hardly a "specialty room". It was more of a Motel 6 with a one person jacuzzi tub next to the bed. We immediately called the front desk, informed them the room was unacceptable and told the front desk clerk we would be leaving. We then asked about the refund policy, she promptly told us they had a two week cancellation policy which we told her we understood but the room was not up to our standards. We asked that she call the manager and get our money back. We then vacated the room and returned to the front desk where we were told that "We were more than welcome to leave." We informed her we would be leaving once we got our refund. The woman then asked where we were from and told us she was from San Fransisco and she LOVED the room. Eventually the manager returned the call and refunded our money. Don't be fooled by the website or the so called "specialty rooms", you will be disappointed and out nearly $200 for the equivalent of a roadside motel.Save yourself the suffering and book at The Birchwood in Sister Bay.

A group of fellow veterans and I get together every year for what we term the "Mancave Reunion" - named after the tent the 6 of us shared while deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. What a fantastic location this year!!! The Country House provided us an option with plenty of space to simply hang out and catch up. Since the 6 of us now live all over the country, being able to gather in such an outstanding vacation spot is top-notch. The penthouse has a tremendous panorama of the bay and was a great space for all of us to get together. We were fortunate to pay the off-season pricing and the kitchen facility in the penthouse provided additional savings as we could buy groceries and make many of our own meals.

When put all together, Mancave Reunion at the Country House was a fantastic success. Door County has made the list of possible annual destinations.

  • Liked — The space to gather and visit.

We went for our 21st anniversary. The view as we drove onto the grounds let us know that we were in for a wonderful treat. The grounds are well kept and beautiful. The view from our room was beautiful overlooking the woods and lake! We had a wonderful time as we walked the nature trails into town. Our room was neat and well kept. The clerk that greeted us upon our arrival was kind and knowledgable with regard to the area. The location is at the end of a road overlooking the woods and lake so it is a very quiet resort. We had planned to go out to breakfast the first morning, but after seeing what was offered in the lobby, we decided to give it a try. We were glad we did - the food was great. Overall our stay was wonderful and we are looking forward to going back. We enjoyed it so much that we have decided to give my brother and his wife a gift certificate for the Country House Resort for Christmas this year.

  • Liked — beautiful view and quiet, secluded area
  • Disliked — pool was closed

This resort is wonderful! The accommodations are great - common hot tub on the resort is well kept and clean. The suite that we stayed in
with the whirlpool in the room was very clean and well maintained.
The front desk personnel were friendly, very knowledgeable about the area and helpful. This resort is a very customer-service friendly resort! This gives you a wonderful first-impression upon check-in.
The resort is beautiful - right on Green Bay - lovely view of the beautiful fall 'colors' when we were there.

They offer a continental breakfast that is 'more' than your typical continental breakfast. Lucious fruit, muffins, cheese, sausage, cereals, french toast, bagels, just to name some of the items available.

We have been enjoying this wonderful resort for over 20 years and each year they add something to make the expererience better by enhancing amenities, grounds, rooms, and services.
The breathtaking view above Sister Bay marina, quiet, and serene setting nestled among the trees provides a relaxed atmospehere in which to enjoy nature's beauty. The absence of children younger than 13 also adds to the peace and quiet.

The location makes it easily accessible to food, drink, shopping,other recreational areas,etc.
Great experience what more can I say. Go, see for yourself.
Two very satisfied Illinois customers.

We have been going to Door County for about 10 years and would think of no other place to stay. Relaxing, Friendly, Clean, Beautiful. The hosts make you feel right at home. It was a special anniversary and upon our arrival the resort gifted us with a box of chocolates and a lovely note. The rooms are comfortable and come with luxurious accessories. We can't wait to go back.

Country House is located on a bluff overlooking the waters of Green Bay and the village of Sister Bay. The views from the private balconies are stunning. The well maintained grounds include an outdoor pool, fountains, and nature trails along the shore of Green Bay. Bicycles are available to explore the surrounding area. A very peaceful and relaxed atmosphere, along with a friendly and courteous staff made for a very pleasant vacation.
