Reviewed 18 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

After record high heat and a very tiresome few day in and around Minneapolis & Rochester, arriving in Alma was such a welcome relief! The Blue Door is absolutely adorable and well appointed. The check in was a breeze and the location is perfect. The pictures are good, but much to my surprise, in person this place even more charming. The ONLY thing that would prevent us from returning is the size of the bed. It is a "Full" or "Double", and I blame myself for not paying attention to this detail at the time of booking. My husband and I are tall and we felt like we were sleeping in a child's bed. But everything else was TO DIE FOR! Loved this place and this town!

We had a wonderful time at the Danzinger Vineyards overlooking the Mississippi River, and a great dinner with very good service at Tansy's on Main. Not to be outdone was Pier 4 Cafe & Smokehouse. What a delight to have lunch there. The service was outstanding and the food was...

Management response:

Thanks so much for staying at the Blue Door and the great comments. Alma WI is a great stopping point whether you're traveling the Wisconsin Great River Road, doing a wine tour or just visiting. If you need a larger bed, the Blue Door Inn offers queen size beds in Suites 3 and 4.
