Settlement Courtyard Inn & Lavender Spa
Ranked #5 of 10 Hotels in Fish Creek
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 September 2015 via mobile

Do not stay here. It is out-dated, (there was a mattress topper on the bed as if it was a college student's room) and there isn't any water pressure in the shower! They claim to offer a 'continental breakfast plus'; whatever that is. Actually it is defrosted bagels, bread and pastries from a warehouse-type club and raisin bran or Kashi cereal. It says it is close to Fish Creek. When I asked about this I was told it was a short 1/2 hour walk through the 'forest'. Unbelievable!

I'm sorry we did not meet your expectations. We offer a continental-plus, (a term used by the Wisconsin B&B Association) which includes the traditional coffee, juice and bakery with the "plus" including hard-boiled eggs, cereal, oatmeal, yogurt and fresh fruit. We try to have a variety of bakery items to appeal to different tastes, from kids to seniors. Our license is for "pre-packaged" foods so we are limited by the companies that deliver to this area. I certainly wish there was more available to us. We are 1 mile south of the village of Fish Creek on Hwy. 42 which is also accessible by hiking trails if you like that type of activity. Many of our guests come here for that which is why it was mentioned to you. We don't expect to be everything for everybody and are always happy to help guests find what they are looking for.

Stayed three nights with our two children. If there were other children on the property you couldn't tell. Staff was friendly and helpful. In booking our stay the room type we wanted was not available and the staff assisted us to check on a hold and secure the room we wanted. Fully stocked kitchenette gives options. Actual keys instead of electronic card access to rooms. Onsite bar has very limited selections, hours and seating for those who care. Included continental breakfast is very limited and the same each day. Front desk closes overnight. There are no hotel chains past sturgeon bay in door co; this was a very nice location and room.

The hotel is located a few minutes from downtown Fish Creek. After doing downtown shopping, it was nice to escape all the crowds and relax back at the hotel. The rooms are different than the typical hotel...nicely decorated, cozy, and clean...it makes for a unique experience. If you can't relax here, it's your own fault. I also had a massage at the on-site spa. By far, it was one of the best services. Everyone has been so accommodating and it was evident that their goal is to guarantee a relaxing and pleasant experience. I would stay again in a heartbeat!

This property is nicely located - away from the maddening crowds found in all the little Door County towns, yet only 5 or 10 minutes from downtown Fish Creek and Peninsula State Park. And, in the middle of the county, so only 30 minutes or so to Washington Island. There's a wonderful cherry orchard & store across the street. They say they have hiking trails, but beware, they are not marked and their map is lousy. A top feature is the staff, who work hard to please and accommodate you. The rooms are not large but nice with a little kitchen and fireplace. Everything seems clean and tidy. The breakfast included is nothing special, no hot foods. We had massages which we were pleased with. There are little shops next to the property, including one called Sweetie Pies - yum, and also a beading/jewelry making shop, which would be wonderful for a girls weekend or rainy day. We enjoyed an arts & crafts fair going on the weekend we were there. Overall a good, homey experience.

My husband and I visited Settlement for the first time for our first anniversary this past weekend hoping for a relaxing and stress relieving weekend away, and we were not disappointed! We had the couples treatment massage, and it was very relaxing! The massage therapists were very personable and made us very comfortable. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, and we wished we could have had the time to stay an extra night. The room itself was gorgeous, and the estate was incredible. It's conveniently located near the Fish Creek restaurants and shops, as well as multiple vineyards right down the road. We will definitely be making this a yearly vacation spot!

The hotel is in a nice location just a mile or so outside Fish Creek, very quiet, except for some highway noise in the morning, if you like to sleep with the windows open. The rooms are clean, and our two-bedroom suite was large enough for three and quite comfortable. We wondered about the huge mounds of monstrous old velvet pillows on the beds. Shoving them all in the closet to make some room for the human occupants was like trying to stop an avalanche with your bare hands. Another oddity is the 19 inch cathode ray tube TV sets. Say hi to the 70's! I don't really need TV in the room, and I can't imagine anybody whose idea of a relaxing evening on vacation is to squint at a blurry small picture most of us bid a fond good bye to about twenty years ago. If you don't want to invest in modern TV sets, just throw out this junk and upgrade the internet service. Most guests should be fine with that. These are all small gripes however. A real downer was the so called continental-plus breakfast included in the price. If you charge upwards of $200 a night in rural Wisconsin, how much would it hurt your bottom line to offer fresh bagels and recognizable brands of cream cheese and orange juice instead of scary little lumps of old dough and something that nobody has ever seen in a supermarket, except perhaps in the cleaning supplies section? And don't even get me started on the coffee... We had one look, swallowed hard, and headed for a cafe in town.

The front desk was a bit slow out of the gate when we had a plumbing emergency at night, but the management ultimately proved to be very helpful and saved the day.

On the whole, we were not disappointed with our stay, but will certainly check out other places to stay in Door County before coming back here.

Room Tip: second floor suites are quite nice

We stayed at the Settlement 3 nights while in Door County for the triathlon. The place was quaint, clean and quiet. Everything was pretty basic, not exceptional, but nice. The location was convenient to Fish Creek and Egg Harbor. An outdoor fire pit was one feature we thought would've been a nice touch in keeping with the atmosphere of the Inn. My wife said she had one of the best massages ever from the Lavendar Spa, a definite added bonus.
