Our motel’s property has been serving the Fish Creek community for over 80 years and we are proud to be a part of it. Formerly recognized as the 'By the Bay Motel,' our property has contributed to Fish Creek's charm since the 1940s, consisting of two buildings with a total of 15 motel rooms. The front building, built in the 1940's, offers six king-bedrooms and a queen-bedroom, five of which provide stunning views of Fish Creek Harbor and Peninsula State Park. The two-story back building, added in the 1980s, features eight rooms, each furnished with two queen-sized beds. Six of these rooms boast captivating water views of Fish Creek Harbor and Peninsula State Park. Additionally, indulge in the luxury of The Deckhouse, our short-term vacation rental with five bedrooms, four bathrooms, and accommodations for ten guests.
