Beach Harbor History
Beach Harbor Resort is nestled away in the charming area of Sturgeon Bay and with Sturgeon Bay’s endless list of activities, it is no wonder that it is a favorite place to stay in the Door County area. Door County is located on a 75-mile peninsula with ten picturesque lighthouses still towering the shorelines making it the most desirable county in the Midwest.
The magic of Sturgeon Bay comes from a long history of water-related journeys. With the waters of Green Bay and Lake Michigan surrounding this serene location, there is no shortage of activities. Enjoy Sturgeon Bay’s enchanting downtown lined with excellent restaurants, cafes, and charming shops. Rent a boat and spend a day out on the calm waters fishing, relaxing, or having a fun family day. Visit the captivating lighthouses that line the coast of Door County or take a detour to explore some exceptional wineries and breweries. Looking for a unique activity? Visit The Farm and experience the joys of petting and feeding farm animals in their natural habitat. Or perhaps something more educational? Door County Maritime Museum is located right in Sturgeon Bay. Stop in to discover the long history of shipwrecks and fishing traditions. Enjoy bike trails, hiking, snowmobiling, and skiing in the 1178-acre Potowatomi State Park located right next to our Beach Harbor Resort!
In the 1940s, Beach Harbor Resort (then known as Shorewood) was a thriving, well-known place to stay. When Shorewood closed, the property was left vacant until 2003 when Patti and Jon bought the motel. Patti and Jon renovated and restored the resort to run it as a family owned and operated motel. You will not find a cold, corporate attitude here, instead Patti and Jon infuse excitement and charm into every aspect of their business. And don’t forget to say "Hi" to the family dog Brett Favre (who now wears a Vikings collar)!
