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...

We found ourselves with a free weekend and decided to book an impromptu trip to Door County, one of our family's favorite getaways. Since it was the last minute, we were prepared to take nearly any hotel room we could find. We snapped up the Coachlite room as soon as we saw it and were more than pleased with our...

Thank you very much for staying with us and for your kind review. We too feel our location works out well for those who want to visit either the Bay Side or the Lake Side Villages. And now with the many new improvements in downtown Sister Bay, the walking/biking trail is even more important to experience the many new restaurants,...

The Coachlite Inn is a lovely place to stay; close to great restaurants, winery’s and lots of sightseeing. A perfect relaxation destination located in a wooded area about 90 minutes north of Green Bay driving through beautiful Door County.

First trip to Door County. Not sure where to stay. Read reviews on TripAdvisor and this inn was rated really high. Lobby,porches, and grounds were very nice. Owner was very friendly and helpful.

It is very clean and tidy. Like that it is just off the highway but tucked back just far enough that you don't have the highway noise. Bed was really comfortable to sleep in.
