My husband and I went to Sister Bay for a weekend get away with friends. We all stayed at Roots Inn & Kitchen and had a blast! We walked to the lake, downtown, and Sister Bay bowl. Amazing breakfast - Collin and Sara were super friendly and top notch service! Hope to be back soon.

Roots Inn & Kitchen was everything I had hoped it would be for a fun and relaxing weekend. We were greeted upon arrival by Sara and Colin (the owners) and shown to our room. It was cute, clean and cozy! Everything we were looking for. The restaurant side of the house was awesome! So comfortable and welcoming. Living in Chicago...

The inn itself was very clean and the location was ideal as it is right down town. However, the room (Room 2, Twin bed room) was so small it made me claustrophobic. On top of that, they served non-traditional foods: Baked kale for appetizers which tasted like burnt cabbage leaves to me; and for breakfast they served what they called...

You stay here at the owners’ convenience. You eat breakfast when it’s convenient for them to plate it, which is promptly at 8 a.m. You show up at 8:30 or 8:45 and the kitchen will be locked. You get a complementary drink and homemade appetizer promptly at 4 p.m., unless there is a Packer or Badger game on, which is...

My Wife and I heard about this place at our local YMCA so we decided to stop in for lunch. Upon entering we noticed all the old world furnishings, the atmosphere was quaint and very inviting. We both ordered the "Stallion" which is an Italian sausage that comes form a local organic farm (All Grass Fed); served on a hearty...

We recently spent 2 nights at Roots Inn. The property is conveniently and quietly located just a block off of the main street in Sister Bay. An easy walk to the marina and restaurants. The room was reasonably priced, clean, comfortable and quiet. The common areas were nicely decorated and the large deck provided a perfect place for breakfast and...

Don't count on everyone else's praise - great food, interesting tap beer selection, beautiful quiet deck, personal service - check it out for yourself. This is like a buried treasure in a secluded corner of Sister Bay.

next time I go to Door County if they have no available rooms I will just sleep in my car but have lunch there everyday!! And I don't know which was more impressive the accommodations or the food itself for the genuine warm hospitality of the owners

We came her for lunch on the advice of a shop owner who said it was a nice quiet place. All that is true. The setting and building were quaint. We sat outside and the flowers were lovely. Very limited lunch menu--brats with exotic toppings and a couple of salads.

We've been hearing such great things about Roots Inn & Kitchen so we could t wait to try it for ourselves. 5 stars aren't enough!!! The inside bar was so cool. But on a beautiful day the outside patio seating was perfect for our family of 5. We're restaurant owners ourselves so we ordered almost everything on the menu. It's...
