We had benn warned that we would have a long wait on Sunday morning for brunch, and we did wait one and half hours (no reservations accepted) but they had a lovely patio with a coffee bar and coffee cake where we sat outside and enjoyed the fresh sea air. The hostess told us up front how long the wait... More

Stayed here again over 4th of July. Still ultra charming, clean, and totally wonderful. Can't wait to go back in the fall, and we also already booked next year for 4th of July. In addition to being a great place to stay, the White Gull's restaurant is not to be missed, particularly for breakfast. Another terrific restaurant in Door County... More

This is our 3 time visiting/staying at the White Gull in. Outstanding facility, outstanding food, breakfast, lunch and dinner. This is a must stay at, eat at location in Door County. Very easy to get to, right off of Hwy 42, two blocks from the marina.

Only stayed here for two nights, but wish it could have been more. Very charming Inn with nice rooms and a great location. We were able to park our car and walk to the lake and into town. Food was excellent and the fish boil was quite an experience. Lots to do in the area as well. Will definately keep... More

We just returned from a two week vacation in and around Michigan and Wisconsin. The White Gull Inn and Door County completed our trip and I'm glad we saved it for last. The Inn is special and right in the heart of things. We stayed in Suite 9 of the Welcher House and because it wasn't on the street, it... More

We had the Welcher House - Room 8 and I do believe it is the best room for quiet and privacy. The room is so beautiful and very large with great seating area. The room is upstairs - if you can not do stairs - be sure and get ground floor room. Bathroom included large jacuzzi for 2. Very nice... More

I wanted to take my new southern husband to see some of the special things around my home state of Wisconsin. Milwaukee, Beer, Brats, Green Bay Packers, family and Door County. You can't do much more in a week. We stayed at the White Gull Inn in Fish Creek. What a delight! Relaxing with beautiful rooms. Each has a special... More

Overall, I'd give the White Gull Inn a solid "B"--there were definitely outstanding points (the food) and not-great aspects, but they pretty much balance each other out. My thoughts from our trip over Labor Day weekend 2013: Comfort: B-. Our room in the Welker House was beautiful and modern. I did see that it was an accessible room in the... More

Wanting to try a Door County Fish Boil? This is a great place to check out. Reservations required! About $20. per adult plenty to eat, boiled white fish, red potato, cole slaw, fresh bread & pie. Have visited here before - always has very good food and wonderful cherry pie - Lots of whole cherries not filler jelly! Good narrative... More
