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

We spent three nights at the Inn. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. Coffee available in the lobby before breakfast was appreciated. The baked goods were excellent but the frittata disappointing. Our deluxe room was large enough and was nicely decorated. It might might be difficult for older people to get in the bathtub. They are planning to redo... More

A wonderful place to stay in Fish Creek. A historic B&B so the rooms are small and quaint but comfortable. Breakfast is included and is very good. The restaurant serves sophisticated cuisine but is fairly pricey. Location is excellent and is within walking distance of most Fish Creek attractions, shops and restaurants. For the price this is about the best... More

We had an absolutely fabulous time at the Whistling Swan Inn. LOVED the décor! The FREE breakfast was the perfect start of a day jam packed with hiking, kayaking, shopping etc. We also had dinner at the restaurant. The sunroom is just an amazing location for both breakfast and dinner. The food was excellent. The only negative I would mention... More

Just loved this old, restored inn. The restaurant is as good as anything in the big city. Just tremendous service! The place has such character & is so beautifully decorated. It is also conveniently located int he heart of Fish Creek.

We chose to stay here based on our experiences at Hinterland Gastropub in Milwaukee. What a lovely place beyond our expectations. Of course, the quaint and friendly setting of Fish Creek itself was a plus, but the Whistling Swan experience was tops all the way from booking our rooms online, talking to staff on the phone and actually staying.
