“Very nice place to stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2012

Nice view overlooking Green Bay, in a nicely secluded area. My wife and I and her brother and his wife shared a very nicely equipped two-bedrooom suite with full kitchen, spacious living area and bedrooms. Free bikes, paddle boats, kayaks, grill, firewood, etc. Our only complaint was that there wasn't a bike trail nearby and not a lot of room for bikes on Bay Shore Drive. Perfect for a three day weekend getaway.

Room Tip: Try to get one of the two bedroom suites on the end next to the woods, if you want maximum privacy.

Had a chance to get away from the Chicago suburbs for a few days and since it's a short 4 hour drive to Door County it was a perfect short vacation. Beautiful suite with a great view of the bay. Did a winery tour, horse drawn carriage ride, and had a couple of great dinners in town. Spent the evenings drinking wine and reading in the lobby in front of a nice fireplace - really relaxing. The staff was great also. Want to go back in the Fall when the colors of Autumn are if full bloom.

We were up for an extended vacation and looking for a good base of operations. The entire staff was friendly and helpful. Lots of local knowledge and resources. This is a good location if you are looking to be in the middle of everything - though maybe not too close to anything. Groceries, downtown Sturgeon Bay, and some park space are within 5-10 minute drive. There are multiple attractions, state parks, and other towns within 20-30 minutes.

If you don't want to leave there are more than a few options within the complex - a small beach front with fire ring, indoor/outdoor pools, video game room, workout room (equipment is a little dated), selection of board games (they lent us 2 sets of Legos for our son during our stay), nice decks (depending on your room and the weather) for hanging out, and full kitchen (minor thing, the baking equipment was a little lacking).

Overall, it was a wonderfully relaxing and peaceful couple of weeks. We were there during an off-period and did not see much of anyone else there. No idea how this place would be during the busy months.

Room Tip: If you want a good deck space, be sure to clarify that during reservations. There is a big premium...

My husband and I stayed here for a get-away to Door County. We loved Bay Shore Inn! We had a beautiful condo with a little balcony, kitchen, all the comforts of home. The inn is on a beautiful piece of lakeshore property - quiet and secluded. The location is great too - one day we explored the bay side of the peninsula and another day we explored the lake side.

Our first stay at the Bay Shore Inn, but it was all too short. Very nice condo,has kitchen and dining room with large living room and nice bedrooms, all with a view. This is a great location as a home base to visit Door County. It is direct bay front so is very quiet, with a great setting along the waterfront. Our unit had a porch deck and table which was a geat place to sit, eat, and view. There are indoor pools and tubs as well as an outdoor pool. Also free bikes to ride, if you have time. We will come back here.

Room Tip: Check with office for best location.

We have returned here time and again over the past 14 years. We love coming in the fall and around the holidays. Off peak rates with all of the perks of this great resort and the Door County area. Easy access to both downtown Sturgeon Bay and the northern Door. Full service grocery store just a few miles away.

While in Sturgeon Bay, it is off the beaten path and feels like you are in the woods...yet right on the water. Every room has a full kitchen, dining table, living room and a porch facing the bay.

Some rooms have fireplaces - a great extra perk. If you have more than two people, rent the supreme two bedroom suite. Very spacious with tons of windows and a large wrap around deck.

I have been coming here off and on for years. My children {who are 27 and 22 now} still talk about their fond memories of Bay Shore Inn. The hotel and grounds are very well designed. The rooms are very large and spacious. All with separate bedrooms. The supreme end units in the North Building our our favorites with an amazing view of the bay. Always spotless. They have an outside fire on the beach, bicycles, a grill, and plenty of chairs to watch the amazing sunsets.

Room Tip: All have a great view. The end units face the bay directly.
