Our family stayed at The Shallows over the 4th of July. I was very pleased with the accommodations. Everything was clean and well-taken cared of. The grounds were beautiful and lush with plenty of bikes, kayaks and paddles for everyone to enjoy. I liked that the management was helpful, quick to take care of (very minor) issues and very unobtrusive. This being the 4th or 5th time visiting Door County, this was by far and away the best accommodations our family has had!

Room Tip: Book early, we booked in early February and only got in because of a cancellation!

We stayed in the Gatehouse, the one-beroom suite units, and absolutely loved it. Apparently the resort underwent an upgrade a few years ago and it is evident. The bed was comfortable, the view of the bay was great, and the staff extremely accommodating and friendly. We are already planning our next trip there.

Secluded and quiet. We had a lake front room in the motel section. It was clean and provided a nice view of the lake and the sunsets. Friendly staff. Although we didn't have any children with us, it's very kid friendly. Tennis courts, bikes, kayaks, canoes, heated pool. Continental breakfast could use a toaster. Comfortable beds and pillows. Whirlpool jets need some work.

The nicest things about the Shallows is the beautiful waterfront location and the well-manicured and maintained grounds. Unfortunately, that was the best part of our stay. Once we went inside, things went downhill fast.

The facility itself is like a budget motel. While it's not quite spartan, "resort" is not a word I would associate with the Shallows. "Cheap 80's Utilitarian" would be the best way to describe the units.

For example, the shower head in our unit was installed at about the 5 foot 4 inch level. I'm not exactly tall (5' 7") and I had to bend down in order to get under the shower head to wash my hair. Cheap.

The furniture in our unit was the kitschy rattan with glass top style that was all the rage back in the early 80s. Cheap.

Although our unit came with a fireplace, it wasn't gas, but you couldn't burn wood in it either. The only thing you are allowed to burn are those cheesy duraflame logs that never really "burn", they just flicker for an hour or two before sputtering out. Cheap.

Finally, you can take a pass on the "continental breakfast" the Shallows provides. We stopped in for it the first morning. It consisted of orange juice, coffee (but no cream), a couple of plain "mini" bagels, and some cinnamon rolls. That was it. Uber cheap.

We chose the Eagle's nest at The Shallows Resort for a long weekend. Could not have been more pleased, especially for the money. A previous (very old) review complained about a lack of air conditioning, and cable television. We didn't need it but the large upstairs bedroom now has an air conditioning unit, as well as a cable connected flat panel television. The living room featured a large flat screen with full cable and DVD.

We found the location to be ideal and the owners very accommodating. We'll be booking a return trip to a Shallows unit next year!
