Our stay at the Coachlite Inn was only an overnite one, but we loved this place at first sight. Beautiful landscaping, comfortable rooms and helpful staff make this hotel a winner. The hot tub, fire pit, continental breakfast and free Wi-Fi are a bonus too. We hope to stay longer next time!

This was our first time staying here and we were very pleased. The room was fantastic as well as the hot tub and fire pit area. Where else can you stay and relax in a hot tub and enjoy a campfire the same night? We will definately stay again our next trip to Door County.
