Elegance and lake life go hand in hand at The Dörr Hotel. As an upscale boutique hotel located on Mill Road—Sister Bay’s main strip that runs parallel to one of the most scenic harbors in Door County—the property has become a destination unto itself since opening Memorial Day weekend of 2021.
Modern opulence is the initial vibe guests experience when stepping into the lobby—an open floor plan with a full bar, a resplendent lounge area and beamed ceilings. The 47 rooms onsite are equally roomy, and initially breathtaking, due to the striking color contrast between the deep earth tones of the furniture and fixtures downstairs and the dazzling whites and creams which dominate the more intimate spaces. Plush bathrobes are also provided in all the private quarters, encouraging visitors to take advantage of the signature toiletries line the hotel provides gratis.
Once rejuvenated and ready to explore the region, a gear locker on the ground level is stocked with an array of equipment (likes picnic wares, adventure backpacks and skis) that lodgers can check-out for personal use, in addition to complimentary access to Sister Bay Athletic Club for those travelers looking to maintain their exercise regimen while out of town. Plus, the staff ensures each day starts off with a smile by providing a continental breakfast of fresh coffee, juice, chai seed protein bars and pastries—all made in-house daily.
“Our Guest Experience Hosts will curate a tailor-made itinerary for anyone seeking guidance on what to do in Door County during their stay,” says James Lohmiller, director of guest experiences. “This approach allows the staff to get to know you more intimately and create a bond resulting in future stays.”
An outdoor bar with fire pits and lawn games is also provided on select evenings when weather permits. Not surprisingly, the grassy knoll that flanks the rear entrance to the property is quickly becoming a popular hang-out for tourists and locales alike. Indeed the only regret one will have about being at The Dörr Hotel is not having more vacation to linger on the peninsula a few days longer.
