It was our 1st time at a B&B, we were on a mini honeymoon. Robin, the innkeeper, was very nice and you can tell she loves what she does. The food was delicious and she was very accommodating to my dietary needs at breakfast (gluten free). She had picked fresh strawberries one morning that she served & all of the... More

It was our first time staying at a bed and breakfast and it was a great experience. It was definitely something different but we enjoy the breakfast - really delicious! Also a very friendly place to stay and got to meet a few new people. Robin the innkeeper was always helpful and made our experience a very special one.

First time in Door County and first time at an American B&B. Robin is a wonderful hostess: definitely a people person, extremely thoughtful, and very accommodating to her guests. The food was amazing and we really enjoyed the conversation around the breakfast table the first morning, starting at 9am. Unfortunately, we had to depart early the second day, so Robin... More

We were first-time b&b goers so we don't have anything to compare to, but overall we had a really lovely time. As most of the reviewers have said, the breakfast is delicious. She is very accommodating to people's food preferences. The "lady's breakfast" which was stuffed French toast was a little sweet but it seems like if you mentioned ahead... More

This is a really lovely historic B&B with much emphasis on antique furniture and furnishings. The innkeeper is very welcoming and we enjoyed our stay in the Cottage Rose room. The bathroom is a little cramped and not a lot of space for sponge bags etc, so if that's a problem for you, choose another room. There are many thoughtful... More

Sturgeon Bay was founded on ship building and I feel very fortunate to live across the street from such a place that employs people from all around the country about 1500 when running three shifts. The shipyard s are open only one day a years for tourists to visit and they can;t wait to arrive to see the amazing ships... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Lavender room. We loved the whirlpool tub. The innkeeper, Robin, is very friendly and makes you feel welcome. Her breakfasts are amazing! She has thought of so many little details to make your stay special. We felt like royalty!

Beautiful Victorian along one of Sturgeon Bays scenic and shop lined main drives. Although the Inn is lacking it's scenic outlook it's charm is truly in the interior. The inn keeper is intent on your stay being comfortable and well fed. With snacks in the upper hall and recommendations for foodies and fun in the area you are well cared... More

Thank you for sharing. I love to cook and believe hot thing hot and cold things cold and yes you are correct . Most of my dishes are baked at 350 in corning ware dishes that keep them piping hot. I start to bake my muffins at 6:00 and hope my guests smell them baking as they awake for their... More

My wife and I stayed at Garden Gate this past weekend and absolutely loved it. Robin, as you may have read, is extremely welcoming and friendly. It was my wife's birthday and she left a bottle of wine, card, and a heart shaped chocolate cake in our room waiting for us! She is extremely accomodating. Best of all, her breakfasts... More

Thank you for writing a review and telling all about our county. Most guests choose a b&b for their own reasons. I feel my guests come to the Garden Gate to enjoy breakfast with good conversation and to meet new people each morning. I always say you never know who will sit at my table. We have people from all... More

My husband and I stayed at Garden Gate for a long weekend in July and we both loved it. Robin, the innkeeper, is chatty and instantly makes you feel at home. The rooms are spotless and the house has a ton of brochures and up to date info on what's going on around the county. Robin's cooking is delicious, every... More

We stayed in the English Lavender room. The theme was beautiful, the bathroom was luxurious, and was full of little things to discover to make us feel welcomed, from a tray of chocolates, some fresh cookies waiting for us, and cherry wine on ice. A guest book on top of the dresser listed years of individuals congratulating Robin on her... More

Thank you for so many compliments. It sure was nice of your parents to give you a gift to stay at the Garden Gate for your honeymoon.
