Finding a hotel in Door County can be difficult. Since the county has next to no chain hotels, it can be hard to predict what you are paying up to thousands of dollars for.

Detailed Review

Overall Score: 4.2

Gordon Lodge is your doorway to soak in the vast expanses of Lake Michigan – a North American natural wonder. The azure waves of the inland, freshwater sea will heal the soul and provide a romantic backdrop to reconnect.

Gordon Lodge’s facilities and amenities also make this a great place for families to nurture their bonds. Nature lovers will appreciate not only the access to Lake Michigan but also the extensive trails to explore one of the most rare and endangered biomes in the world.

Gordon Lodge is set on a 130-acre, park-like resort. Trails meander through the woods, inviting you to explore a nature setting few will ever encounter. You can even encounter endangered species here like the Hines Emerald Dragonfly.

Gordon Lodge is not for everyone. If you want walkable accessibility to shopping and other attractions, look elsewhere.

But, Gordon Lodge’s onsite restaurant means that you may not even want to leave the property.

For those who want to soak in a gorgeous natural setting to bond with loved ones, this is the place to go.

Location

5.0

See location on map.

Gordon Lodge is its location, and its location is Gordon Lodge.

This is the place to stay in Door County if you are a nature lover.

Imagine the murmur of the waves crashing into the shore as you drift to sleep under a starry night. Picture yourself sipping coffee while watching the golden orb of the sun cresting over Lake Michigan, swathed in hues of red, yellow, pink, and orange. Think about wandering the wooded trails of this resort’s 130 acres, encountering deer and other animals.

All this awaits you at Gordon Lodge.

The location of Gordon Lodge isn’t for everyone. If you want walkable accessibility to lots of restaurants, shopping, and other attractions, you should look elsewhere. Also, if you really want to walk down and swim at the beach every day, think about a property on the Green Bay side of Door County. The water in Lake Michigan is great for swimming on the hottest days of the year, but otherwise, it can be quite chilly.

That’s why I gave Gordon Lodge 4.5 out of 5 stars. Some might want a different location.

But, for many people, Gordon Lodge is an amazing spot with much to offer.
