Just got back from a quick trip to Door County. We were only able to stay one night, so we we arrived at 10:00 am the day of our stay to make the most of it. After parking, we went into the office to let the owner know we were there and riding our bikes for the day. Bryan was...

We stayed here for one night in Room #8, which is on the first floor of the Harbor House building, the red one. It was wonderful! There are 2 buildings. The original white one is called the Zahn house and is a restored original building. The red building is called the Harbor House and was built fairly recently by the...

My wife and I were very pleased with this Inn. We especially liked the the 2-person hammock on the balcony which became the perfect reading/napping spot on a rainy afternoon. We also liked: homemade muffins, free kayaks, free bikes, large and current DVD selection for use, and the walk-out pier in the marsh. We plan to return next year.

My wife and I decided to escape Chicago, and spend a long weekend in Door County. Now most of the hustle and bustle on the peninsula is along Highway 42 on the Green Bay side. But if you are looking for some peace and quiet, but not too far from the action, take Highway 57 to what is known as...

Just returned from a couple of nights at the Blacksmith Inn. Really enjoyed the personal treatment...starting with check-in, we identified who we were and our host immediately got up and escorted us right to the room...none of the formalities that we are used to when checking into hotels, very much felt like we were a guest in their home. Room...

This B&B Inn is situated on the quieter side of the Door County peninsula on the edge of the lake. The rooms are charmingly decorated and all face the lake. The breakfast was perhaps disappointing, a very minimal continental offering and completely self service. For us this was not quite the standard which we would expect. Otherwise an excellent place...

BlacksmithInnkeeper, Owner at Blacksmith Inn On the Shore, responded to this review

We do serve a continental breakfast, but knowing this is not the expectation of all B&B guests, we make a concerted effort to ensure every guest is made aware in advance. Our web site has a full page devoted to the nature of our breakfast and our reservationists verbally point it out as well. We have friendly competitors who do...

My husband and I really loved our stay at the Inn. We had no idea what to expect as it was our first time to Door County. Our stay exceeded our expectations! I'm not sure we'll want to stay at a conventional hotel again... We loved our room (Zahn House), the entire place was very clean and maintained well, it...

We stayed at the Blacksmith Inn on the Shore for four days. We had an incredible room with a wonderful view of Lake Michigan. Our room had a king size bed. Each room has its own private balcony with comfortable chairs. There was a large jacuzzi bath and nice robes in our room. Each morning the Inn has a continental...

The Blacksmith Inn largely contributed to our having a dream-like week in Door County. Joan gave us excellent tips on hiking trails in the area. Breakfasts were great with home made muffins and other goodies each morning. The room was spotlessly clean and comfortable, and we enjoyed the view of the harbor and sounds of birds each morning. Lovely garden...

My husband and I have driven past The Blacksmith Inn many times over the last five years. I never gave staying there much thought because at passing glance, it looked old. We decided to mix it up this year and stay somewhere new. The online pictures looked nice so we decided to give it a try. I am SO glad...
