“Door County Getaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

A homey experience awaits at the Garden Gate in Sturgeon Bay, WI! My husband & I stayed here as a gift from my sister in law and her husband. I had looked online for open rooms anywhere we could as it was during peak season for fall color and all the rooms around Door County were booked solid. I found Garden Gate online and they had one room available. I read great reviews and all the reviews were true. The innkeeper, Robin, was very welcoming and invited us into her lovely Victorian home as if we'd known her all of our lives. She made the yummiest breakfasts and deserts/snacks for us too. We stayed in the Vintage Rose which is a very "cozy" room, but has a larger bathroom area. It satisfied what we were looking for in our stay. Everything was very clean and Door County was gorgeous! We'd recommend this B & B to anyone...especially during the fall season! Hiking at Peninsula State Park was great & there are so many fantastic places to eat lunch/dinner in the area.

This was our first stay at a B&B. We had planned to stay for 2 nights but could only stay for one, and I dearly regret it. Our hostess Robin, is the sweetest person u will ever meet. Her breakfast is too good to miss. She has so many stories to tell and so pleasant natured. I would love to visit this place again.

We have stayed in many B&B's and found the Garden Gate to be exceptional. Robin is definitely the hostess with the mostest. She is very, very welcoming and made us feel right at home. She also was very helpful with the local attractions. But the breakfasts were really something to enjoy. We didn not need to eat all day. Plus she always had fresh baked snacks upstairs for all to enjoy.Our room was very clean and accommodating We would definitely come back to stay again. Thank you Bob and Joan

This was our first experience at a Bed and Breakfast and the Garden Gate was truly a wonderful experience. Robin was so welcoming and she made us feel special everywhere we turned inside our room; candles, cake, lighting, fresh flowers, muffins, and fresh baked cookies every day. The breakfast was fantastic as well as the conversation! Every corner of the bed and breakfast held a welcoming eye-catching surprise. Robin was a wealth of knowledge about Door County and provided us with information specific to our vacation in Door County. This is a must stay if anyone is considering vacationing in Door County!

Room Tip: The Lavender Room is fantastic!

Garden Gate was a great introduction to the B&B world. Robin is so kind with many great tips on local attractions (have to see the goats on the roof or take the tour, then explore), along with an excellent host and cook. The cherry french toast was amazing!!! My other half throughly enjoyed the chocolate cake and muffins we saved for later in the day. Rooms were so clean and nice. The Lavender room is very romantic with the whirlpool tub being an added bonus! I can't wait to return next season!

Room Tip: The Lavender Room rocks!

It was a great gateaway place for me and my husband. Cute little romatic rooms, perfect location(just a few blocks away from downtown) and very quite and clean.
The host(Robin) is a delightiful lady and really easy to get along with. The breakfast servered was delicious and kept us full throughout the day :) Also, the timing of the breakfast was perfect neither too early nor too late.

Robin's B&B was our first experience at staying at a bed & breakfast. It felt just like being at home but more. Her hospitality & friendliness were beyond our expectations. We will definitely be back to visit. Five star Bed & Breakfast. Don't miss out when you are in Sturgeon Bay

Room Tip: Try out the front bedroom. It has a jacuzzi.
