Ideal for Musicians, Perfect for Everyone Else!

The Holiday Motel was Door County's first-ever motel. It was purchased by a group of caring musicians and is now called the Holiday Music Motel. This motel is a charming destination with a distinct retro flare. It has been completely renovated using only "green" building materials and practices. In each room you'll find original 1950's tiling and furniture, plus modern amenities like a flat screen television with cable. And all rooms are wired for hookup to the onsite recording studio! If you are looking for a unique vacation destination, your search is over with the Holiday Music Motel!


After a devastating fire in 2007, the motel was carefully renovated using only environmentally-friendly building materials and practices. Today, as a result of those concerted efforts, the motel's owners are pursuing LEED certification for green practices.


If you are a music loving family, there is not better spot to plan your Door County getaway! Plan your getaway during one of the annual song-writing conferences, and you will be able to listen in on live recording from the comfort of your room. Travel off site to visit local tourist attractions like the Door County Maritime Museum and the Historical Museum. All of this and more awaits you during your stay at the Holiday Music Motel.


The Holiday Motel opened its doors in May of 1952 – making it the first motel in Door County. Fifty-five years later following a devastating fire it was purchased by a group of musicians who carefully renovated it, turning it into the charming, retro destination it is today. Come visit this historic getaway for your next Door County vacation!
