Principal owner Chris Schmeltz cut the ribbon on the 47-unit Dörr Hotel Thursday, officially opening the doors to the first new large-scale hotel built in Door County in almost 20 years.
The hotel is the first four-story structure built in Sister Bay and is expected to generate $68,000 in annual property tax revenues, according to Village Administrator Beau Bernhoft.
