The owners are very warm and welcoming and the house is beautiful. This was so much better than staying at a hotel. The breakfast was delicious and the rooms are kept very clean. The house is a beautiful old Victorian with a wrap around porch complete with rocking chairs and there is also a Coy fish pond. There is plenty... More

We enjoy the bed and breakfast feel of the Inn. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. We liked the smaller and less expensive room better than the larger room. We enjoyed the wine bar at night and the enclosed sunroom with fruit and coffee in the morning. Somewhat pricey.

The first impression is important, and the gentlemen in the reception -come lounge- area was very good, but perhaps not excellent. One of the two was engrossed in a game of football, which showed the rather relaxed nature of the business. On leaving reception and heading upstairs, the age of the stair carpet was apparent, and there being no carpet... More

Classic old building with large rooms and soft beds. What is not to like. Watching the tourists of Door country wander the shops of Fish Creek, or enjoying a wonderful freshly made breakfast on the porch. Everything about this Inn was wonderful.

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 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
