Yes, there are four gorgeous suites in this inn that we think are unknown gems in Door County — this is worth the read!
Here is a hidden treasure that is yours to find. We spent over an hour with Darryl and Mettie, the innkeepers, and relished every minute! And if you like antiques, the ground level is an antique store that they run.

The Cornerstone Suite
The Cornerstone Suite, about 1,200 s.f., is impressive. When you first walk in, you see the beauty of the kitchen and living room area, appointed with "primitive-style" antiques, including an 1850’s cupboard, and a painted wood corner cabinet. A comfy couch, oriental rug with an antique sled-made-into-a-coffee-table, a couple of chairs, a fireplace and huge windows overlooking the front of the barn and roads makes this suite elegant. The floors are all white pine, while lots of rough wood, exposed beams and teal painted woodwork add to the charm.
One bedroom had an old Orchard Farms hand-painted sign for the headboard, while the bed is covered with a multi-colored star patterned quilt. An antique pine armoire, exposed beam ceiling, green trimmed woodwork and antique nightstand complete the look.
The bath has a standard tub, shower and one spectacular surprise: in the silo-part of the barn in this suite is a hot tub, with a domed ceiling with stars painted on it, and a hand-painted mural of a farm scene with stone walls that surrounds the round room. It took a month of painting by a French artist named Poplaski, who happens to be a Zorro expert and has published a couple of books on the subject. Awesome!
We’re not finished with this suite yet! Upstairs, you reach a landing that has a long primitive bench for resting and pondering, and this loft overlooks the living room below — spectacular! And, up here is the second bedroom, with a metal bed frame, blue and yellow quilt, rocker, French primitive wardrobe, a gothic window, two skylights and a small private bath.
Hey wait! We’re still not finished with this suite! Even further upstairs in the silo is the "silo sunroom," a sitting room surrounded by windows, with rattan furniture, a side table made from a gum tree that used to house a bee-hive (don’t worry, all gone!), and a ceiling fan to cool you down! Wonderful! Do guest like this suite? Here is what some said:
We agree 100%. This is a unique find.
The Garden Suite
Walk into the second suite, and your eyes are swept up and around — it looks like you are standing on the outside of your Victorian home — with a view of the kitchen area, and a porch that leads up and up! You step from the outside right into the kitchen area, with a primitive double-door cupboard, old 4 panel door, which Darryl and Mettie called their "corn-patch" door because of its greens and yellows, peaked ceiling and fan. Wow!
Walk upstairs — it’s like you’re on your porch — and you overlook the kitchen area from ceiling height! To the left is a living room with TV, bright and colorful. A gas, free-standing fireplace, a gorgeous and peaceful view of the surrounding farm fields, ceiling fan bench-made-into-a-coffee table, and a large couch make it a relaxing environment.
Step up again through a door with a large beveled-glass window into an impressive bedroom, with a hot tub surrounded by and green and rose trellis, an antique armoire, metal bed frame covered with a leaf-and-herbs motif spread, a private bath through another old 4-panel door, skylight, ceiling fan. What else can you need? Well, there’s a small two-person deck just outside the room too. What a suite. Are we finished? No!
Go up a few more steps from the bedroom level and find a nice, cozy sunroom with white wicker furniture, a wonderful view of the fields, and woodwork trimmed in a muted rose. Yes — you’re in the silo again!
We toured the Mettie Rose Suite and the Sweet Clover Suite s well, and thees are also impecable. You will love any of these suites and will be telling all your friends about it (or maybe bot if you want to keep it a secret)! Watch the video for a great tour of this wonderful place.
OK, now we are finished with the tour! This place is a definite hidden gem, a real find for you, and if you book this and bring your spouse or significant other, they will say when you pull up to the old barn, "What have you done? Why did you book us here? Do we live in a barn?" They step inside, and wow — you will be a hero. This is the kind of barn we’d all like to live in! And it's open all winter too!
We won’t even quote the rates for Cornertsone Suites — they were so reasonable, we would call them right now for a reservation! Click though to their site for a beautiful tour — and tell them where you found them! We think this is a genuine DoorCountyNavigator.com super-discovery, and be sure to tell them that DoorCountyNavigator.com sent you!!
