“So Relaxing!!! No screaming or crying kids under 13 running around!!!”
Reviewed 5 September 2010

My wife and I came here for the labor day weekend to celebrate our 9th wedding anniversary and were very happy with our stay in the one king first floor suite! Hot tub, fireplace, 42 inch plasma tv. What more do you need. (There are some HD channels if you know how to get to them on the tv remote) The outdoor heated pool was nice as I was the only one using it since it was about 60 degrees outside. The outdoor hot tub was nice also! I admit it is a journey down to the waterfront and for the elderly, disabled, bad knees, out of shape people, etc. They wouldn't find it too easy! I am 34 and I loved the decline and incline, as did my wife. The pier was awesome and the trails were so much fun to walk on into town!! It was just a perfect place to recharge the batteries after they get drained due to life!! Did I mention, no kids under the age of 13 running around crazy like everywhere else? That was my favorite part. Really nice breakfast in the lobby area every morning and delicious cookies served throughout the day. My wife and I will be back. Very, very pleased!! Wonderful Place!!

We returned to the Country House Resort for the first time in almost 15 years. The property is beautiful. The rooms all have balconies overlooking Green Bay. The rooms show their age - but so do we. We were only going to stay one night, but stayed an additional night. Everyone was so helpful. When we checked in, we asked if we could eat our lunch in their dining area. We were given plates, utensils, etc. We used their bikes and asked for a route that avoided as many hills as possible. The route was perfect. When we decided to stay, we were given great advice for a guided kayak trip and dinner that day. I hope we don't wait 15 years to do it again.

The resort is very well kept and everything is clean. The resort only accomdates families with children 13 and up. There is a beautiful shoreline but you must be able to walk up a steep hill to return to the resort. So if you like to sit by the water prepare to exert yourself. We were the youngest people at the resort and sat at the shore all day but only saw a few other people that could get down and back up.We stayed in a 2 king suite, oddly the bedrooms had skylights in them so at 5:00 in the morning it was broad daylight. If you are an early riser then this is definitely for you. But, if you are looking for sleeping in then you may want to find a different resort.

Thank you for your rview! We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and especially the 1100' of private shoreline and dock. It is admittedly a steep hike up from the waters edge, but many of our guest's find that like you, the peace, quiet and beautiful waters of Sister Bay are well worth the effort.

Regarding your early wake up in the Two King, Second Floor Suites, first I must apologize. We regulary provide sleep masks for each bedroom as we realize the skylites can allow the sunrise to wake our guests earlier than they may prefer on vacation. Unfortunately a delay in our new shipment caused us to run out and not have masks in the room at the time of your stay. I also wanted to mention that the first floor suites are located on the first floor and therefore do not have skylites. They have identical amenities with one king bedroom instead of two. The Suites you stayed in are a personal favorite but they are also the only rooms with the skylites, so for those who wish to sleep in, one of our many other room types might be a better choice.

Thank you again for your kind words and feedback. I am just so sorry that we didn't have the sleep masks in the suite for you stay.

A Chicagoan and a Milwaukeean who live in Michigan and had never been to Door County were invited by life friends to meet them
in their favorite place. The Country House was perfect...particularly with nearly seven decades under our belts. Beautiful, tranquil,
well appointed, ideally accessible and convenient to the "crowds" of Sister Bay. Morning breakfasts were tasty and varied and
showed us just how many folks were sharing this paradise with us--though we'd never seen them. Nice pool and hot tub, yet
the view from the private porches remains the most memorable. We could be close to our friends but private, in the middle of
a bustling, busy resort and never feel the pressure. Super kudos for the handicapped accessibility which means that this lovely
place can be enjoyed through the best of times and when life gets a little harder. That means a lot to me both philosophically and
practically. And now I read that my dog can come too. What's not to like. Since we made no service requests and have little sense
of price comparison, I may have underrated both service and value; we were truly satisfied with both.

We picked Country House resort for the positive reviews on Tripadvisor. It is a great place to stay if you are looking for an adult only resort that is quiet and peaceful and charming for a reasonable price in Door County. We stayed in the carriage house which was very nice. They have a great walking path that you can walk to Sister Bay as well. the pool and hot tub were well maintained and the grounds are very well maintained with wonderful flowers and fountains. The breakfast is more like a continental breakfast, but had enough selections to be adequate.

The Country House in Sister Bay, Wisconsin (Door County) is a wonderful place to stay and it is not even listed in the AAA Tour Book. It's on a bluff overlooking Sister Bay and the town of Sister Bay. Most accommodations have a view of the Bay. We stayed in a multi-room suite with a king bed. It had a full bath, dressing area and living room, a whirlpool, gas fireplace, wet bar with refrigerator, microwave, balcony, 42 inch screen TV, DVD/VCR/CD in the living room and a TV in the bedroom. The grounds has a full sized swimming pool, and a separate hot tub, and for those more athletic a tennis court and for less athetic a shuffleboard. We have been coming to this "resort" for >25 years. In the early days it was with our teen age son but more recently as he has grown older and married it is just the two of us. This year we introduced close friends of us to the place. The Country House is very quiet and restful. It is near to some of the better restaurants in Door County. The staff is very accommodating and pleasant. There is a nature trail to the water with a dock at the foot of it for boating. It is a beautiful place to stay and we enjoy it a great deal.

We reserved 3 nights here because of positive reviews on Trip Advisor, and were very pleased. We probably had one of the smaller rooms, but it was comfortable, convenient and clean. The room itself might not have been worth the price, but having a private balcony, the view of Sister Bay, the beautiful and spacious grounds, and all of the other amenities of Country House made it absolutely worth the price. One thing that we did not know from the the Resort internet site was that they have no elevators! We lucked out in being given a 1st floor unit as my husband has great difficulty climbing stairs so it would have been a major problem.
This will be our 1st choice on a return trip.
