The grounds of the Inn were beautiful! The room was quiet and clean. The room was small and could use some upgrading (1960s look to the room). Door County Coffee was advertised as being available in the lobby for 24 hrs per day. However, being early risers, there was no hot coffee in the lobby at 7 am on any...

Dear Betty, Thank you very much for your positive feedback. We are excited to be upgrading many of our rooms this off-season by adding all new bedding, window treatments, as well as replacing many air-conditioners, fans and carpeting in many rooms. Thank you again, Rich and the Coachlite Inn Team!

The staff was very helpful and friendly answering all our questions about the area. The rooms are clean and very well maintained. The hot tub, fire pit and breakfast were better then most places offer. We will be back and can't wait to get back to paradise.

This little gem is on the highway on the south end of Sister Bay. When you pull into the parking lot it feels very secluded! It is very centrally located for day excursions around Door co. Clean and nice, helpful ft desk, would definitely recommend it!

The Coachlite Inn of Sister Bay was a great place to stay. It is a beautifully landscaped inn that is nestled in the woods. The room had 2 queen beds (could be softer) and was very clean, comfortable and located in a quiet part of town. The inn owner was very helpful and knowledgeable on the best places to go...

Never know until you try it. You win some and lose some. This is a winner. Great location on Sister Bay. Very close to Peninsula State Park. It is an older property but the owners have done a great job of maintaining it. Our king bed was very comfy. The room décor was outdated and sparse but I truly cared...

Clean. Very firm beds.I suggest a foam/ pillowtop be added. Good location on fringe of Sister Bay. Cross Hwy 57 & walk bike path to town. Pirates Cove mini golf & ATM very close. Cell tower 50yards away so no issues. Take Country Lane to Piggly Wiggly (groceries). Older but renovated country motif. Outside access second level. Open windows W/...

We most enjoyed this hotel's proximity to downtown Sister Bay (about a 12 min. walk if you'd like to leave the car behind for the evening) and found that it was an ideal base for our daily excursions to Peninsula State Park, Ellison Bay and Whitefish Dunes. The Inn is nestled into the woods and there are several places to...

We stayed here on our way out to Washington Island because it was convenient & nice priced. We were surprised how charming it was: beautifully landscaped grounds, (even with a very cool retro bike with flowers in a basket just outside the main building); a hot tub in a gazebo in the courtyard; beautiful quilts on the 2 beds in...

The Coachlight Inn gives the feeling of a small B&B. It is nestled just off of the highway but feels like it's tucked away in the forest. The two people who worked at the front desk were incredibly helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. I would definiely stay here again.
