BUT not anymore! Wow, talk about falling from grace! Hard to know where to begin. The "lodge" is really just a hotel off the road. Looks okay, but upon closer inspection, it is a disappointment. So, let's start with the good things; the television in room is very nice and is able to get a lot of channels (who cares...

Everything in the hotel was fine. The rooms were clean and well maintained. The location is great, the grounds are beautiful and the staff is friendly. The only issue we had was that there was no Wi-Fi available in the buildings.

Good location at waterfront. Great made to order omelette The rooms let this establishment down: badly need refurbishment - cheap linen, musty smell on bedclothes and in room, uncomfortable beds. But clean

The main lodge was really nice and they had a very good complimentary breakfast each morning. The grounds and the view were excellent. Also excellent location to get anywhere in Door County. We stayed in the motel located separately from the main lodge - rooms need updating and cleaning. We still enjoyed our trip and the price was reasonable, but...

The view in the early morning is beautiful - fog and sunrise by the river! Breakfast is your average hotel breakfast, but it's free so that makes vacation easier. Rooms and TVs are out-dated. It is pretty far (30 min drive at least) to other attractions of the penninsula, I would have chosen a different hotel but nothing else was...

I stayed here for several weeks for a long business trip I was on. The staff was very friendly, and they were immensely helpful and flexible. The bar/restaurant located in the building meant that I never had to go far to get food if I didn't feel like running out after a long day. The pizza and fried chicken combo...

staff was especially accommodating. we enjoyed the property, liked the boat dock across the street it added some interesting flavor to the resort. We visited during the mid week, just prior to the prime color weekend, the resort was not overly busy, and close to the main down town area.

Not overly impressed. The breakfast omelets were awesome. The rooms were not. completely outdated. Our room has a odor to it. Smelled like an old musty basement, couldn't sleep at night because of it. Think it was in the carpet, after airing the room out the next day, the second night was much better. needs to update decor and ice...

Room was not clean - lamps hadn't been dusted in quite some time. Patio glass door was not clean and there were cob web at the corner behind the vertical blinds. Very disappointed. Mentioned it to receptionist when we checked out and she made a note of it, but did not offer us a discount on our bill or on...

No trains, buses, semi trucks, horn blowing sirens blaring .... this Lodge is one quiet place, very clean and comfortable, picturesque setting. We visited during a rainy spell in October, yet still had a nice relaxing time. Great food in the in-house restaurant / bar too btw, and, they had the Cubs game on (playoffs) which made us feel very...
