Reviewed 17 August 2015

A very nice, family-run inn with many amenities. Clean, well-kept, quiet, and secluded, yet in the center of all that Door Co. has to offer. The accommodations are very affordable, with large motel-style rooms featuring two comfortable queen beds, air conditioning/baseboard heat, cable TV, and WiFi. The place also has a covered outdoor hot tub, a fire pit with gas...

DCInnManager1, Owner at Coachlite Inn of Sister Bay, responded to this review

Thanks David! We really appreciate your positive feedback. With the Inn's location being so centralized yet far enough from the road and surrounded by trees and nature, this was the main reason we were so attracted to this inn. Were so glad you enjoy it for some of those same reasons. We look forward to hosting you again on your...

When I read it was a family business, I reserved right away. They know how to take care of people. The rooms are like any other hotel. The grounds are well taken care of. The lobby/eating area is homey. The best part (and you won't see this at any other hotel) is they have games you can play, books you...

Thank you Cathi and Ken. Were happy you enjoyed the games and books we have for our guests to borrow during their stay. We also have dvds to use at no charge and with my wife being a teacher we continue to add to the selections. We hope to see you again soon....thanks, Rich, Jeannie, and The Coachlite Team

There are no major hotel chains in Door County, and that's part of the charm. The Coachlite is one of the many nice, family-run inns that are typical of the area (and even though there are lots of them, they are ALL full during peak season). Our "suite" was meticulously clean but not luxurious. That was fine, since we didn't...

Thank you DJ. Were glad you enjoyed your stay. Having no chain businesses in DC is what we always appreciated as tourists before moving to DC back in 2010. Thanks for mentioning the cleanliness of your room as our housekeepers take a lot of pride in their work. We hope you stay with us again soon. Thanks Rich and Team...

We normally stay at another inn in Sister Bay, but found ourselves unable to book a 3 night stay on short notice and ended up at the Coachlite Inn for 2 nights. We spent one night in a "deluxe" king which needs updating, but our 2nd night was in a nice queen room. The continental breakfast was served in a...

Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay. We try to continually upgrade our rooms and grounds and have recently replaced bedding in nearly every room as well as having purchased new flat panel tv's and dvd players for every room.

Friendly staff, clean rooms, nice outdoor whirlpool spa. They had a designated area for grilling and campfire. The mattresses were very firm. You could open the windows for fresh air instead of using air conditioning. They served a continental breakfast which we did not take advantage of, so I cannot say how that was.

The owners could not be nicer. Great property with a large whirlpool, and jetted bathtubs. The large suite is decorated with a antique theme. The single rooms are spacious and are a more modern theme.
