We are family of 4, stayed in a 1 bedroom suite (200 level South building) for 5 nights in June. Most important: The suite was very clean! Linens and towels were clean and not worn. All staff members were friendly and informative. Sofa bed was adequately comfortable. Kitchen and bathroom amenities were fine. Our unit had a spacious balcony accessible from both the bedroom and the living room. Grounds and gardens were pretty and well-kept (but a shame that the exceptionally brutal winter ravaged the evergreen bushes; they will hopefully recover in time). The sand beach, pier, and fire pit areas are very nice. We did not take advantage of the fitness room, pools, bikes, or boats, but nice to know they were available. A couple minor negatives: We had assumed the suite had central air (our fault for not asking specifically when making the reservation). It has a single window unit in the living room that is loud when sleeping on the sofa bed. The bedroom, then, was a bit warm with the door closed, but has a ceiling fan. Surprised to find out the suite did not have its own iron and ironing board, which are available in the common laundry area on 3rd floor (again, we should have asked). The balcony could have been swept or wiped to remove a few cobwebs and dust/dirt.
The Inn is only 5 minutes from downtown Sturgeon Bay, but you would not know it when you are there. It has a natural, country feeling. Our suite had a nice view of the bay, and we enjoyed a couple of beautiful sunsets. Convenient to shopping, restaurants, and Hwy 42 to head north up the peninsula. We would stay here again.
