WELCOME TO THE QUIET SIDE!

Your Gateway to Lake Michigan

Baileys Harbor is the best kept secret when it comes to vacations. We attract those seeking a different “Door County” experience filled with exploration, adventure, and nature.

Located on the eastern shore of the Door County peninsula, Baileys Harbor has always been considered the quiet land. We have over 6,000 acres of public lands prime for blazing your own trail and reconnecting with nature. Our sandy beaches give way to the mighty waters of Lake Michigan, ideal for catching air on a kite board, reeling in monster salmon or trout, or discovering shipwrecks and the rocky shoals that claimed them. Get your history fix by discovering our four lighthouses accessible by foot or boat tours. Get a bird’s eye view by racing your friends on a zip line tour soaring through the tree tops.

If peace is what you seek, you’ll find no traffic jams here. Our lodging options range from sleepy lake houses to high end waterfront resorts to bustling downtown motels and inns. Whatever type of experience you are looking for, we have it.

Put up your feet in Baileys Harbor.

We’re glad you are here!

Baileys Harbor was rated #13 Comfiest City in the US for Travelers in 2016 by Expedia.com and in 2018 Architectural Digest said Baileys Harbor is the Prettiest Town in Wisconsin!  

family friendly adventures await!
