Marking the end of summer in Door County Labor Day weekend is always bitter sweet. Filled with fun and laughter as the kids have one last hurrah before they head back to school. As we start to prepare for a slower paced fall it brings to mind the beautiful colors that door county has to offer. No mater the season, the weather or the holiday there is always a reason to come to Door County. The Beachfront Inn is now open through Thanksgiving and is the perfect spot for a fall getaway.
My girlfriend and I stayed at the Beachfront Inn with my two daughter’s (9&12), from Aug 11th-15th. We were scheduled to check out on the 14th but decided to stay another night, luckily they had another room available. The staff there really makes you feel at home. They are so friendly and go out of their way to accommodate you. The extra day we stayed we had to switch rooms, ours was booked, but they moved all of our stuff to our new room so we could venture out. The rooms are very nice and clean, but a little noisy. They have a bonfire every night (depending on the weather), you can buy a bag with stuff to make smores and they provide roasting sticks for your use. There is also a cool second floor deck that is beautiful to watch the sunset if you don’t like to sit by a bonfire. They have two paddle boards you can use for free. The beach is very clean and the sand is very soft. It is a little rocky when you first walk in the water but then it is very nice sand and the kids enjoyed looking for little rocks for souvenirs. The pool was also nice and was warm, which was great on one of our colder days. They also had floaties to us while at the pool (which we actually left our purple raft there for future guests!) They have towels to use for the pool and beach and they are nice and large. We are already planning our return trip for next year! It is centrally located, so Fish Harbor, Sister Bay, Egg Harbor, Whitefish Dunes, Ephraim, are all 15-20 mins away. So happy we picked this place and had a great vacation because of this place.
My husband and I had a FANTASTIC stay at the Beachfront Inn in Baileys Harbor! I was absolutely blown away by how clean and beautiful our beachfront room was! I was not expecting it to be as wonderful as it was because we booked it on a last minute whim and I was just absolutely THRILLED when we arrived! The hotel is right on the water and within walking distance from everything you need in downtown Baileys Harbor…great restaurants, bars, breweries, breakfast nooks, a gas station, a beach, little shops…everything a quaint, small town would have to offer! The hotel itself is RIGHT ON a little beach and has an adorable little patio perfect for morning coffee and also boasts a great outdoor campfire spot for the evenings. They even had some outdoor games we could play! The pool is perfect if you’re not ready to take a dip in Lake Michigan, but if so, they even had some paddle boards set out for guests to use. The hosts were wonderful and beyond kind. This could NOT have been any better! This will be my first and ONLY choice every time we head to Northern Door County from now on! What a find!
