Holiday Music Motel - Sturgeon Bay, WI

Hot summer nights in a retro 1950s motel, listening to the grooves of the best laid tracks from singer-songwriters from all over the country. Only one motel can give you all of this - Welcome to the Holiday Music Motel!

No one knows the trials of extended road travels like musicians. Nights on the road, one motel after another and the grind can kill the most hearty. So when a group of singer-songwriters got together during the Steel Bridge Songfest in Sturgeon Bay WI they decided enough was enough and bought a place they can call home – complete with a recording studio!  Welcome to the Holiday Music Motel!

This completely retrofitted 1950s motel is the perfect escape and one of the coolest places to stay.  With a vibrant arts scene this motel is in the heart of where you want to be. The annual nationally renowned Steel Bridge Songfest brings in artists from across the country to gather, record new music and debut it at the festival. Of course, singer-songwriter and operating owner Melanie Jane and her partner and festival creative director Pat Macdonald will be there to greet you. Oh, and did I mention one of the singer-songwriter owners is Jackson Browne too?

The Holiday Music Motel has eighteen beautifully restored rooms and is open year round. And if you are looking for some cool road to go out and explore, Door County offers some excellent suggestions.
