I first discovered The Blacksmith Inn on the Shore in the mid-1990s, and I've stayed there every single year since, during a variety of seasons. I have never had a negative experience while staying there, and I look forward to being in my room as much as I look forward to the vacation as a whole.
The building and rooms are always immaculate, the property is lovely, and the view, looking out from any of the 15 guest rooms, is gorgeous.
Guests receive the best of everything: fresh fruit in the morning is always perfectly ripe and delicious. Mattresses are heavenly. Bed linens are high quality. Chairs are perfect for curling up with a good book. The whirlpools are situated for relaxing with a view of the fireplace and/or the lake. Porches are all private, and face Lake Michigan.
The owners are personable, wonderful people, who are helpful and knowledgeable, but do not hover, as I've experienced at some other B&Bs. By taking their suggestions, my husband and I have discovered some great restaurants that we may not otherwise have found.
The staff quietly go about their jobs, but are always available to help or make suggestions if asked.
The inn is cozy and classy at the same time. It is a romantic getaway that doesn't resort to Victorian doilies. Men and women can both feel comfortable there.
So many people vacation in Door County, but they haven't experienced the best of it if they haven't stayed at the Blacksmith Inn.
