Well, I absolutely cannot say enough about my experience, yet if I had to put it into one word, it would be.................AWESOME. From the beginning of when I got to the location on Friday night, I was amazed with the simple, yet peaceful, tranquil, and beautiful views and decor of the Inn, both inside and out. Stayed, for the weekend...

The Coachlite Inn of Sister Bay is way above average in all respects. The proprietor's years of experience are reflected in every aspect of the property. The landscaping receives lots of attention and adds to the ambiance. The physical plant is equally well-maintained, without any shortcomings in furnishings or room cosmetics. Guests are made to feel welcome and will find...

My family and I were very pleased with our stay here. The rooms were nice and the property overall was well kept and clean. It is in a perfect location, not far from other towns like Fish Creek or Ephraim. The breakfast was not big but they still had donuts, cereal, fruit, coffee, and milk. The staff was friendly and...

I loved the feel of this place! The decor and grounds offer a country cottage feel that is a nice reprieve from the hectic downtown setting. Less than 1 mile from downtown, so you can walk (15 min) or drive (2 min) to most of the main restraints, shops, and the main beach in Sister Bay. The family that owns...

Surrounded by gardens, this sweet motel is just off the road in Sister Bay. The management is helpful and friendly, the rooms clean and roomy though somewhat dated , and the continental breakfast Average. Suggest you bring you own personal care supplies.

Nice, clean, handy place if you want a place to sleep when visiting Sister Bay. Family owned and the owners are very nice. Just do not really count on breakfast unless you are ok with cereal and milk or sweet pastry.

We knew nothing about Coachlite Inn before our stay and were delighted to find a charming & inviting place located on busy Bayshore Drive tucked away behind the pines. The driveway is lined with beautiful flowers and plants leading to a lovely garden oasis setting. Rich was very professional and friendly at checkin providing helpful info about Coachlite amenities- continental...

My daughter and I had the pleasure of visiting the Coachlite Inn last week on our trip to Door County. We found it to be just as advertised. The microwave and minifridge in the room were put to good use for my gluten free breakfast, the beds were quite comfortable, and the temperature easily controlled. The landscaping outside was well...

The hotel is set back from the street among trees, so it feels private. The room was decorated with a homey feel. The owner is very personable and answered all of my many questions, even looking of information for me on the internet, addressing all of my needs. The stores and restaurants were conveniently located and some within a walkable...

Set in a lovely little garden, just off the main street of Sister Bay, the Coachlite Inn was a bit like staying over at a friend's house in the country with the extra amenities of a hotel. The room was clean and quite large but what really struck us were the outdoor fire pit, running brook, and whirl pool. Each...
