Lodgings in Door County tend toward the small and cozy end of the spectrum. But if you’re looking for a large, hotel-style resort directly on the water, check out the Bay Shore Inn, which sits on the waters of Sturgeon Bay just outside the town of the same name in the southern part of the county. The resort’s wooded property features multiple multistory buildings. Many of the condominium suites have water-facing decks, providing wonderful views of Sturgeon Bay and the wooded bluffs of Potawatomi State Park across the water. The property’s sandy beach includes fire pits and kayaks and other water toys available for guest use. The resort also includes free bicycle usage, tennis courts, indoor and outdoor pools, fitness center and picnic areas with gas grills. All the suites include full kitchens. We found furnishings a bit dated, but overall, the Bay Shore provides a great stay thanks to its location and amenities.
