I loved the feel of this place! The decor and grounds offer a country cottage feel that is a nice reprieve from the hectic downtown setting. Less than 1 mile from downtown, so you can walk (15 min) or drive (2 min) to most of the main restraints, shops, and the main beach in Sister Bay. The family that owns...

Surrounded by gardens, this sweet motel is just off the road in Sister Bay. The management is helpful and friendly, the rooms clean and roomy though somewhat dated , and the continental breakfast Average. Suggest you bring you own personal care supplies.

Nice, clean, handy place if you want a place to sleep when visiting Sister Bay. Family owned and the owners are very nice. Just do not really count on breakfast unless you are ok with cereal and milk or sweet pastry.

We knew nothing about Coachlite Inn before our stay and were delighted to find a charming & inviting place located on busy Bayshore Drive tucked away behind the pines. The driveway is lined with beautiful flowers and plants leading to a lovely garden oasis setting. Rich was very professional and friendly at checkin providing helpful info about Coachlite amenities- continental...

My daughter and I had the pleasure of visiting the Coachlite Inn last week on our trip to Door County. We found it to be just as advertised. The microwave and minifridge in the room were put to good use for my gluten free breakfast, the beds were quite comfortable, and the temperature easily controlled. The landscaping outside was well...

The hotel is set back from the street among trees, so it feels private. The room was decorated with a homey feel. The owner is very personable and answered all of my many questions, even looking of information for me on the internet, addressing all of my needs. The stores and restaurants were conveniently located and some within a walkable...

Set in a lovely little garden, just off the main street of Sister Bay, the Coachlite Inn was a bit like staying over at a friend's house in the country with the extra amenities of a hotel. The room was clean and quite large but what really struck us were the outdoor fire pit, running brook, and whirl pool. Each...

Stayed here with my husband and parents for two nights in late June. We arrived about 45 minutes early and were pleasantly surprised that we could get into our rooms immediately. Our room had stenciled blue flower accents that caught the eye and matched the deep blue curtains. The bath/shower appeared to have been recently updated, and sink fixtures looked...
