I don't like to bad mouth hotels, but the cleanliness could really use some work! When we arrived, there was a partial condom wrapper on the floor, bugs in the floor, and hair in the shower. We shrugged that off as we were tired and wanted to relax. About 11 at night, I was lying in bed when my husband... More

It's not often where one finds owners who truly care about their guests experiences. It's also not often to receive hospitality instead of service. My girlfriend and I encountered both here. We live in Green Bay. After a week and a half of physically getting pummeled at work, we just wanted to get out of town on our days off... More

Opened in late 2015, this is possibly one of the finest places to stay when you are visiting Door County. A husband & wife run lodge located off the main highway. The rooms are great, the staff are friendly. The only slight downfall would be the lack of choices for breakfast. Apart from that there is nothing to complain about.... More

The first time we stayed at Open Hearth Lodge, we were very pleased with our room, because we were in the new part of the lodge. This time we were put in a room in the old lodge, and it needs some help. Mattresses were a little soft, sink filled with water and drained slow as did the bathtub while... More

We have become regulars here after trying many other hotels, motels and inns. Rooms are nice size, very clean and comfortable! Owners are great people going out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. Nice free breakfast! Check out their two night packages for a great value and lots of local color & culture!

Wonderful family owners on staff with friendliness and helpfulness. The entire lodge was clean and comfortable. There is plenty of free parking and even though all rooms were occupied we never heard any doors slam shut or people talking down the hallways. The pool was a nice temperature. The only thing keeping this from a 5 star rating is my... More

My mom & I stumbled upon the Open Hearth Lodge right here on TripAdvisor, & we are so happy that we did! They were so friendly at check-in, & the rooms were impeccable. Such cute decor throughout the entire hotel, & was the most comfortable bed & pillows! Breakfast was light on selection, but for the price- it was phenomenal!... More
