What's NOT to like about this delightful inn?! Our room was as roomy and comfortable as any chain motel room, with very spacious bathroom and all of the "necessary" amenities. But most of all, the location was JUST what we needed and what people often look for: a quiet location nestled in the woods, a creek, outdoor hot tub in...

With the family ownership it's A must for a family that's traveling. Tucked out of the way so it's quiet and out of the way. Small breakfast so be prepared to eat out, but if coffee and juice and rolls are your thing it will be just fine. I highly recommend you stay here on your trip to Door County!

Thank you Johnny for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Our continental breakfast does include 3 types of cereal, milk, 2 types of juice, fruit, bakery, and Door County coffee. While it does offer a complimentary "start" to your day if you choose to partake, nothing compares to the awesome breakfasts at nearby Al Johnson's or the...

We stayed here with our daughter for two nights over Memorial Day weekend. PRO"s: Rich, the only one around, was very friendly and helpful with any questions we had.

We spent two nights at this hotel and were very satisfied. Our room was very clean and well maintained. The room was large and the beds were very comfortable.

Our stay at the Coachlite Inn was only an overnite one, but we loved this place at first sight. Beautiful landscaping, comfortable rooms and helpful staff make this hotel a winner. The hot tub, fire pit, continental breakfast and free Wi-Fi are a bonus too. We hope to stay longer next time!

The Coachlight Inn is a great value for Door County. It’s in a great location, and you can walk all the way from the Inn to shopping or dining in downtown Sister Bay by taking the paved path in front of the Inn (across the road). The grounds at the Inn are beautiful. The Inn was full during our stay,...

Thank you Laurie for your kind review.

Hopefully you can use our fire pit and grills on your next visit, too. Thanks again, Rich and The Coachlite Inn...

Thanks for staying with us. We're glad that you enjoyed the privacy of the Suite. You're correct. A guest could remain secluded in the privacy of the separate Pond Suite if they didn't decide to enjoy the complimentary continental breakfast in the neighboring lobby. We offer three types of cereal, milk, bakery, fruit, juice, coffee and tea each morning from...

This was our first time staying here and we were very pleased. The room was fantastic as well as the hot tub and fire pit area. Where else can you stay and relax in a hot tub and enjoy a campfire the same night? We will definately stay again our next trip to Door County.
