I read about the White Gull Inn while researching our trip to Door County and knew I had to try their cherry stuffed french toast. I was REALLY looking forward to this breakfast and was not disappointed! It was absolutely delicious and not overly sweet, which was a pleasant surprise. The service was outstanding. We went on the 4th of... More

I wrote another review for this place but had to remove it, somehow the star rating got set to 1. It's no 1 star experience. The White Gull Inn is cool for many reasons. The old property has a certain undeniable charm, and plenty of genuine Door County character about it. The fish boil is a huge draw. Make a... More

We stayed for three wonderful nights towards the end of June in room 2. The screened in porch over looking the fish boil was great, along with the rest of the room. Last year we stayed in room 1 for a short weekend and loved it. The coffee and newspaper at your door in the morning is great. The breakfasts... More

There are quite a few places that do traditional fish boils in Door County, but I can't imagine one that does it more elegantly than the White Gull. I am not a big fan of fish, but my husband is of Norwegian ancestry and we went mostly for him. I enjoyed the entire evening just as much as he did!... More

We stayed one night in Room 3 located in the main house on the second floor towards the back. The room was just as beautiful as shown on the B&B website, with a generous sized seating area, a large modern bathroom and a huge fully enclosed porch that overlooks the fish boil area. We ate dinner that evening at their... More

As we've been to the White Gull so many times and experienced a perfect stay each time, it's hard to know how to compliment this Inn in a new and different way. Let's just stay we have a booking there already for this coming September and also for next July. As breakfasts are complimentary when you stay at the White... More

I have been eating breakfast at the White Gull Inn for over twenty years. You will not lose with any choice on the menu. My favorites include the award winning stuffed French toast, golden brown and butter hashbrowns, the hearty breakfast, homemade coffee cake, and the bacon. The only thing you need to be aware of is that you at... More

Our second visit and more to come no doubt. Friendly and helpful staff, beautiful landscaping, delicious food, and spotlessly clean, cozy, and well appointed rooms. This is truly an Inn and the innkeepers are true hospitality folks. Great location as well, sort of nestled in the forest near the Bay, but convenient to the rest of the village. Also had... More

I did not stay at this inn. My husband and I went for our first fish boil. I was quite excited as I've seen pictures and heard stories. Anticlimactic would be the word I would use for this boil. After sitting outside and watching the boil without any narration or fanfare we were all hustled inside to stand in line... More
