In 1907 Dr. Sebald Fichtner opened "Forest Idyll" on the former Ingebret Torgerson farm, the first homestead in Sister Bay. The beautiful old building, an historic landmark, has become one of Door County's most outstanding places to stay, the Country House Resort. Additions, remodeling and refurbishing have been continuous throughout the years, retaining the charm of a country inn while adding the amenities of an elegant resort. With 46 exceptionally attactive rooms and suites, most have private balconies overlooking the bay, fountains and gardens, many with two-person whirlpools, two-person showers and fireplaces. Enjoy the complimentary deluxe continental breakfast, oversized whirlpool, heated swimming pool, tennis, rowboats, bikes, nature trail and dock, all on site.

Country House Resort is a wonderful place for a relaxing vacation. The location is excellent for exploring The Door. The grounds of the resort are well kept & accommodations are nice. They have a very good breakfast. We stay here each year.

We enjoyed our time this past weekend at the Country House Resort. It was so quiet and relaxing. The atmosphere is wonderful and the scenery was amazing. Our room had a great view! The staff was pleasant as well. We hope to return again!

We have had a home next to the Country House for 26 years. We purchased the resort 17 years ago because we have enjoyed the natural beauty. You can enjoy this beauty- woods, flower gardens, fountains, shoreline nature trails, water views, the Niagara escarpment, all without leaving the resort.
