“Nice Place to Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

I stayed here with a bachelorette party. We had most of the B&B to ourselves. The house is old and large, and the interior is very well maintained and decorated in a classic Victorian style. My room had a large jacuzzi tub in the main bedroom/living space with a separate room for the toilet and sink. I found it odd that the jacuzzi tub is also the shower facility and the only thing separating you from the bedroom was a shower curtain. The tub surround is about 3 feet tall and there isn't a step to climb into it, so use caution getting out after showering or bathing because it's slippery. (When getting out I had to straddle the side and one foot was on the floor outside the tub, the other inside the tub. My food inside the tub slipped and I ended up falling onto my inner thighs and was bruised.)

Some other in my group stayed in the suite on the top level. Unlike the rest of the rooms which had 1 bathroom per bedroom, this suite has 2 bedrooms (and a sleeper sofa) and only 1 bathroom with a claw foot tub. The room has a large living space with mini refrigerator. The entire space was somewhat haphazardly decorated in a nautical theme, which bordered on tacky (painted murals on the walls).

The entire house was very clean and well maintained. The breakfast table was beautifully set and the food was yummy, albeit not as grand as I was expecting (pretty basic, small portions).

The inn keeper is accommodating and nice enough but is not very warm or approachable. She's wasn't very talkative and seemed fairly serious but I didn't interact with her much so I don't know if that's a fair assessment of her personality.

Overall, we had a nice stay. I would recommend it!

Thank you for you comments, it sounds like your room was the Lady Slipper room and I will look into the tub situation. Regarding the third floor this is a 2 bedroom suite rented as one unit and the bathroom has a double whirlpool with shower not a claw foot tub. The suite is called the Door County Lighthouse Suite and a local artist painted the Door County Lighthouses on the walls of the suite.
Regarding the breakfast, only the entree and fruit is served individually to the table the rest coffeecake/breads and muffins, english muffins and homemade jams are served family style and you are welcome to take what you would like.

First time in door county making reservations last
Minute, was happy to have found this little B&B. very
Close to the bay, shops and restaurants yet snuggled a block off the main road up on a hill. The room was beautiful with a huge two person jacuzzi tub. The public areas beautiful with antiques etc.... All the expectations of a quaint B&B. breakfast was good but very simple as opposed to the more opulent B&B breakfasts we had in other places. However, the price here more affordable than most. So loved the whole 3 nights staying here. Thank you for a great Experience.

Just returned from our long weekend in Door County. Ruth was a pleasant hostess for our weekend. Most of our days were busy site seeing and it was always nice to come back to a comfortable place at the end of each day. The house is lovely Victorian in a neighborhood off the main street. Our breakfasts were always delicious with homemade bakery and jams.

Room Tip: Note: we were in the Lady Slipper room which is right off the sitting room. For more private locati...

I booked a room for a last-minute getaway to Door County and based my decision to stay at The Sawyer House on other Tripadvisor reviews. The community did not let me down! This is a large lovely Victorian home with lots of woodwork and stained glass. It is beautifully decorated and Ruth sets a beautiful table for breakfast with many homemade goodies. I would recommend this B&B as a base for exploring Door County.

We had the Trillium Room which has a large whirlpool. It also features a fireplace which would be nice for a fall visit.

I am a stickler for cleanliness and this place is absolutely spotless! Great choice and great price.

Lovely B&B within walking distance of downtown and all the Steelbridge Songfest activities. Ruth is a great hostess and she enjoys cooking. Very cool old victorian style home. Room was very large and comfortable. Great value. Shower water pressure was only disappointment.

The home is very nice and in a quiet location. The breakfasts' were home-made and delicious. Fresh muffins and home-made jelly too. The brownies Ruth , our host, put out for an evening snack were very yummy. The bed was very comfortable and the gas fireplace was a very nice touch as well. Although were stayed in mid-May the weather was pleasant enough to sit on the deck which is quite large ( big enough for a few couples/groups to gather and not intrude on each other ).Sawyer House is a gateway to Door County, we traveled up the east side and down the west side. There are many quaint small towns -- Fish Creek, Egg Harbor-- along the way to either eat, shop, or just to walk around and take in the peaceful views, of either Lake Michigan or Green Bay as each has a beauty of its own.

Room Tip: The Trillium Room was Pleasant.

My husband I spend a couple of days there. We found it was pleasant. The innkeeper, Ruth, was very nice and responsive. She made a wonderful home-cooked breakfast and served at 9:00 am (During our stay, we found some guests did not tell Ruth that they won't be staying to have the breakfast. It was not nice though. The breakfast was all homemade based on the number of checked-in guests. So all foods were wasted).
PS. The previous review was very accurate on everything actually.
