One of the great treasures of northern Door County, not to mention all of Door County, is a beautiful vintage waterfront resort in Rowleys Bay. Aptly named, Rowleys Bay Resort offers everything you could want in a get-away.

Rowleys Bay Resort is a place you go to relax, unwind and enjoy. Whether you stay in a traditional room or suite, cottage or vacation home, you are just steps away from 700 feet of shoreline. Imagine waking up to a view of Rowleys Bay, or watching the moon rise before you settle in for the night. The sounds of nature will lull you to sleep as gentle waves kiss the shore.

Your day begins in whatever manner you choose. Enjoy Swedish pancakes on the buffet in Rowleys Bay Restaurant, which also features a full breakfast, lunch and dinner menu. Or treat yourself to the best made-from-scratch pecan and cinnamon rolls in Door County at Grandma’s Swedish Bakery. If you enjoy exercise before you start your day, why not swim laps in the indoor pool, work out in the fitness room, or take an early morning bike ride or hike?

Fishing enthusiasts love the easy-access marina right on the bay. The historic Mink River Estuary is directly off of Rowleys Bay which offers bass and walleye fishing, along with charter boat fishing. Silent sports abound with kayaking, canoeing, paddleboarding, Segway tours, zip-line and amazing bird watching. Pelicans, eagles and herons are spotted daily.  A secluded sandy beach is just a short hike or drive away.

Rowleys Bay Resort offers many options for lodging. Within the three-story lodge, there are 65 rooms and 10 suites.  Five vintage cottages bring back the best of childhood memories – the cottages are waterfront and waterview.

And just down a private road are vacation homes that sleep anywhere from four to fourteen people and include all resort amenities. There is something for everyone within all budget ranges.

Explore 100 secluded acres on a pristine, undeveloped bay on Lake Michigan. Savor all-you-can-eat fish boils with a historical re-enactment of the bay’s history at Door County’s longest buffet and salad bar, not to mention a delectable Sunday Brunch buffet. Enjoy a cocktail in the pub, or join your family in putting a vintage jigsaw puzzle together in the lobby by the fire or in our library.

If you’re visiting Rowleys Bay Resort as part of a group, you’ll enjoy the spacious conference rooms and banquet hall, all under one roof. The atmosphere is relaxed, friendly and casual.
