In 1907 Dr. Sebald Fichtner opened "Forest Idyll" and felt it had the potential to become a grand hotel. If he were alive today he would know that his prophecy has come true. The beautiful old building, an historic landmark of Sister Bay, Wisconsin, 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, modern resort.
The Country House is located just south of Sister Bay Â¼ mile off Highway 42 at the north end of Highland Road. Nestled on 27 secluded, wooded acres on a rolling bluff with 1,100 feet of Green Bay shoreline, it caters to adults and provides privacy to those who savor it. The Country House's subdued framed cedar exterior, accented with native stone, boasts covered private verandas which give guests a sweeping view of the Green Bay waters and the resort's fountains and gardens. Guests pamper themselves in an oversized whirlpool, the heated swimming pool, tennis, rowboats, bikes and lawn games. At the shoreline is a swimming dock and a 1/3 mile nature trail into the village.
The Country House has 46 exceptionally attractive rooms and suites with nine different room types to meet a variety of tastes and budgets. All rooms have refrigerators, coffee service, phone, remote controlled cable TV, DVD/VCR or Blu-ray, wireless internet, tub/shower, hair dryers, feather pillows, pillow top mattresses, robes and daily maid service. Most with private balconies overlooking the water. Included in the accommodations are “specialty rooms” and spacious suites which appeal to honeymooners and couples celebrating anniversaries and special events. Specialty rooms have an in-room two-person whirlpool, two-person body spray shower, king or queen size bed, wet bar and microwave. One bedroom and two bedroom/two bath suites have king beds and a Great Room with fireplace, two-person whirlpool, wet bar, microwave and music system throughout.
