Bridgeport Waterfront Resort
Are you looking for a resort that caters to your every need? A resort located in one of Door County’s quaint and historic towns? How about a resort that offers unparalleled amenities and every possible modern convenience?
Bridgeport added an internet center, and wireless internet throughout the property; and in recently, they redecorated with all new interiors! Wow - it keeps getting better!
At the Bridgeport Resort you will get all-of-the above mentioned - PLUS a waterfront location like no other in Door County. Located in the historic harbor town of Sturgeon Bay, the Bridgeport Resort is nestled on the shores of the Green Bay waters at the foot of Sturgeon Bay’s historic downtown bridge. The "old" bridge, as it is referred to by the locals (there is a "new bridge" that bypasses Sturgeon Bay), connects the town’s East and West sides that are separated by a channel that connects the waters of Green Bay and the waters of Lake Michigan.
The Bridgeport Resort is only a short stroll away from many quaint shops, coffeehouses, restaurants, public parks, beaches, marinas and the Maritime Museum. There are art galleries and usually a farmers’ market on the weekends in the summer months.
Here, you are in the heart of Sturgeon Bay’s historic buildings and friendly people, which make it a great place to site-see, shop, enjoy local restaurants or even experience a performance at the Third Avenue Playhouse (TAP). Located on Third Avenue, TAP is community performing arts facility located in a remodeled movie theatre (the old "Donna"). They perform in-house productions as well as other productions using local and professional talent. Ask the guest staff at the Bridgeport for details. We’ve seen the popular "Guys on Ice" at TAP and it was awesome!
SERVICE AND ACTIVITIES
The resort itself is absolutely wonderful. It has every modern convenience you could imagine. Whether vacationing with friends, family or on your honeymoon, the Bridgeport has the ability to cater to your needs. For a large waterfront resort, it really has a comfortable homelike atmosphere. We noticed that "very homey" and "polite, accommodating guest services" are popular themes in the guest comment registries.
You’ll find a friendly grand entrance where a smiling staff, with a sincere professional desire to make your stay a memorable one, is waiting to great you . In the entrance you will enjoy a large beverage bar area, where guests can enjoy cappuccino, juice and more day and night! The room has a fireplace and oversized furniture making it a great place to relax anytime.
Activities at this resort are fabulous. They have both indoor and outdoor swimming pools. The outdoor pool has a waterfall that you can jump through. The kids love it! The indoor pool has a whirlpool and sauna, with plenty of space for lounging. And kids love the indoor Splash Park with a slide and interactive water games.
Another great place for the kids to hangout is Peabody’s Playpark. It is an indoor play area with free video games and lots of tubes, tunnels, and balls! But the uniqueness of Bridgeport lets you take a stroll down the waterfront walkway. This lighted sidewalk travels along the shore of the channel and offers great views of Sturgeon Bay at night. Lavish lawn areas, park benches, wildlife, sounds of the water and boat-watching, make this walkway a popular attraction among locals and guests alike. In addition, the Bridgeport has a game room, and a great exercise facility. Nearby activities include public beach, park, tennis courts, golf courses, charter fishing, jet skiing, water skiing, snowmobiling, boating, sailing, cross country skiing and lighthouses and state parks. Wow!

Perfect for family reunions, corporate retreats, service groups or church conferences. The facilities can hold groups up to 75. A variety of audio-visual equipment is available too!

Bridgeport Resort also offers several specialty suites for special occasions and romantic get-aways. These suites are distinctly decorated and feature extra large whirlpool tubs and at least one fireplace. Our favorite room that we toured is the Challenger Suite, which has a very bed-and-breakfast feel. The painted, oversized furniture gives it a warm and cozy atmosphere.
