We've stayed in many B&B's, but this one was a standout for us. All the makings of a great B&B stay were there -- friendly hosts, good breakfast, comfortable room, impeccable housekeeping. However, it was the working sheep farm aspect that made it truly memorable. The stay includes a a tour of the sheep meadow and a chance to meet... More

Wonderful place! Dick and Gretchen are superb hosts. They have perfected the art of exactly the right amount of hospitality. Beautiful, modern clean room. Spotless bathroom. Breakfast the next morning was homecooked, and delicious. Eggs with artichokes, scones with local dried cherries, all served at perfect temperature, and almost more than we could eat. It was so good we ate... More

This was a week of several firsts for us: My wife and I had never visited Door County before, had never stayed in a B&B before, and had never walked out of a morning to be surrounded by such a friendly friendly flock of Wisconsin residents. The other reviews all have it exactly right as regards the atmosphere, the friendliness... More

We stayed for three nights in late August and it was wonderful. It's on the 'quiet side' of the Door County peninsula, and is incredibly tranquil. The rooms are spotless, the food is wonderful and was different every day, and the hosts are charming and helpful. We stayed in the 'Trillium' room, which has a queen sized bed with a... More

We stayed at Whitefish Bay Farm for two nights in mid-August. It was a lovely experience. The setting is beautiful, the rooms are exceptionally clean, and the inn keeper Gretchen is charming. They offer a tour of their sheep farm, and you even get to pet the sheep! If you're looking for a more off the beaten path place in... More

My husband and I just got back from a wonderful anniversary retreat in Door County. We had never been before, but we will surely return, mostly because of this perfect B&B. I don't think I ever want to stay in a chain hotel again. The rooms were simple and very well decorated with beautiful wood details and furniture. The showers... More

This B+B has been run by Gretchen and Dick for the past 21 years - and their experience sure pays off! Rooms are simple, but immaculate. Breakfast is served promptly at 8 a.m.- Gretchen serves hearty, simple meals. The setting is idyllic - the B+B is a working farm with sheep and chickens. Very close proximity to Whitefish Bay County... More

This was our second stay at Whitefish Bay Farm. We go to Birch Creek Music Festival every year in July and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else now that we have experienced Whitefish Bay Farm. Having raised a family, we appreciate the no-child policy. The grounds and house are impeccably maintained, the breakfasts delicious, and hosts delightful. We sleep so... More

If you love animals, you will love the Farm. But even if you don't, you will love the hospitality, the cleanliness and the yummy breakfasts. This B&B is off the beaten path in Door County so those who want to escape the crowds will love it here. Gretchen and Dick work so hard at making this a warm, welcoming place.... More
