“Fantastic Place to Stay”
Reviewed 12 June 2011

This was our fifth stay at Bayshore Inn. Love the staff - so friendly and helpful. One of the few places where you can safely leave your belongings out and not worry. Indoor and outdoor pool are great. Very concerned that your visit is perfect. Great location. Beautiful grounds.

You don't need to leave the hotel. They have a beach, massages, pools, biking, and more.

My boyfriend surprised me with a weekend getaway trip for Valentines Day to Bay Shore Inn, and I must say I was very impressed with everything. We stayed in a beautiful, quiet two bedroom suite with a lakeview. The staff was incredibly knowledgable about stuff to do in the off season and even recommended a PERFECT restaurant! Bay Shore Inn also had an onsite licensed massage therapist. Total rest and relaxtion can be found here.

Watch out when they saw waterview, waterside, I got a blocked view on the end, couldn't see a thing. Staff was very rude, and unaccomodating. Charged me for 2 nights and I never stayed. Money hundry and forget about the guest and rude hostes. Terrible experience, don't ever stay here. There are many many other spots to stay in Door County.

We had a nice stay here, checking in on Father's Day for 4 days. We arrived early, but they gave us our room, which was the deluxe 2 bedroom on the south wing. The condo was spacious and VERY clean, with 3 doors that led to a big deck with a view of the water and gardens. Nice!

The grounds are clean and well-maintained...the inn's website does not do this place justice, it is nicer in real life. The gardens are pretty and the pool has a view of the small sand beach and rocky shores. You can hunt for seashells or just relax, its pretty. They have rowboats, paddle boats and bikes to use for free.

Some people have said the location is not good, but it is just a short drive to the other towns in Door County and most of those do not have their inns directly on the harbor...in Ephraim, they are all across the street from the water, so this place is ideal. We bought some groceries and cooked light meals there, but everything is close. Fish Creek is the best town...it has a hipster vibe we enjoyed, and cool shops and a pretty view. Sweetie Pies has homemade pies that are killer and there is a vintage drive in theatre there, too.

We'd never been to Door County, but it was fun...Pennisula Park had a lot to do, a beach and light house, hiking, etc. I found that the shopkeepers were all friendly, unlike in Harbor Country in Michigan, where people are uptight.

The condo was cleaned every day by a friendly staff and the front desk has dvds and games you can take to your room. I really enjoyed this place...our kids loved it, too. I liked that the deck has an opening to get right to the beach, so you feel like it is really private, your own entrance. We made a fire in the firepit on the beach and watched a glorious sunset on the water. This place is super, super quiet. We'd go back in a heartbeat!

We have stayed at the Bayshore three times in total, the most recent time with my young daughter. The rooms are essentially condos and we found them to be well cared for and clean. My wife tends to be more picky about cleanliness than I am and she was very pleased. They have a beach, an outdoor pool, and an indoor pool. They have a fitness center, which I didn't use as well as bikes you can use for free (though they're not in the best condition). Very friendly staff. One additioinal intangbible was that we left our Kindle bookreader there and the housekeepers turned it in and we got it back. It's what you would hope would happen but truthfully, we had assumed it was gone. My only negative comments are: 1) it is in the southern end of Door County and depending on traffic, it can take a while to cover the entire penninsula; 2) the beach is ok but it should be a focal point in my mind. They need to do a better job of grooming it and they need to increase and update the chairs on the beach. In my mind, this could be a huge additional focal point of what is already a nice venue. On the plus side, there are a couple of row boats and paddle boats available for use .
