We stayed here during our recent visit to Fish Creek and Door County. The room, a two-room suite, was very comfortable, the staff very friendly and the location great… right in the center of town. Would definitely stay here again when visiting the area!

The Whistling Swan is in the perfect spot; located at the quiet end of downtown Fish Creek and a block away from the constant traffic on Highway 42. But, you are never more than a block or two from all the restaurants and shops, as well as the beach and Sunset Park. If you bring your bikes, the Peninsula Park... More

This is a lovely old Inn that is one of the few options in the "off season". The lobby and restaurant are very warm and welcoming. There was a fire burning in the fireplace in the morning with great coffee and delicious pastry! The host continually brought out freash pastry that was warm from the oven! We had a relaxing...

My husband and I have stayed here two times and can't wait for a return visit. It's very charming and cozy and just feels like home. We love everything about it to the location, the lobby area, the fantastic bar and service of the staff, the restaurant is top notch. I recommend this place to everyone I know making a... More

My boyfriend and I did a weekend get away at the Whistling Swan Inn in the middle of February. We absolutely loved the Whistling Swan. A week before our stay, I called to inquire more details about the weekend getaway. Ellie had answered the phone and was so helpful. I made mention that I have a gluten allergy and she... More

I had stayed at this inn over forty years ago, when it was still the Proud Mary. Being a White Gull Inn fan, I hadn't given the (now) Whistling Swan a chance until our most recent trip, and then lucked into a room when we had a problem at the White Gull. What a great experience. The rooms were nicely... More

The Whistling Swan was a wonderful introduction to Door County! It's a well maintained, clean Inn with old world charm that is central to Fish Creek (which it turns out is one of the larger towns of Door County). We got the last room available, room 2, which I understand is one of the smaller rooms, but it was very... More

I wish I could have a separate rating for the restaurant vs the Inn, because I would go with 5 for the restaurant and a 2 for the Inn. The restaurant for dinner (they serve dinner only) is just superb. Innovative ever-changing menu (it seems) and the two nights we ate there our server (same person -- in fact the... More

A clean, quaint Inn with and (arguably) 5-Star restaurant and bar serving wine and Beer from a local Brewmaster....'affiliated' with the Inn. At over 100 Years old, it has it's quirks, but if you are OK climbing some stairs, showering in a claw-foot tub with wrap around shower curtain (awkward), and sharing a small bathroom with your companion....then you'll be...

The location on the "quieter" end of Fish Creek is perfect because you can walk to all the restaurants, shops and even the bike rental at the entrance to the state park. Our room at the Inn was small but very clean, and eventually had everything we needed for a long weekend were we would be spending our days outside.... More
