Editor’s Review of Bridgeport Resort
This Great Lakes resort with cottage-style architecture feels more East Coast than Midwest with ships coming into harbor, blasts of boat horns, the cry of seagulls, Door County's Maritime Museum and a charming downtown for shopping and dining. It's all within a stroll -- or stroller ride -- from the resort, making it a relaxing place to base a Lake Michigan getaway.
Toddlers have their own small slide and splash area near the indoor pool. Older children can splash around the indoor pool with its nautical theme while adults kick back in the hot tub. When the weather's sunny, there's a deck with faux rock and a waterfall next to the outdoor pool.
Resort rooms feel like a new vacation home with small kitchens or wet
bars and microwaves that let you eat at your leisure and take advantage of Door County's bounty. Make time to find fruit stands with strawberries, cherries and apples, and farm markets with cherry pies, cherry brats, juices, ciders, jams and even cherry salsa. For Moms and Dads, there are several wineries, too, and a few cheese shops with some of Wisconsin's best cheeses.
Families traveling with a group of relatives or friends can gather in the spacious lobby area that faces the harbor for their own meals or visiting with complimentary coffee, cappuccino, tea and juices all day long. There's a cupboard full of games that guests can use.
It's a homey resort choice whether you stay put or hit the road to explore the rest of Door County for great beaches, state parks, orchards, art studios and boutique shopping. less
