“Fantastic B&B!”
Reviewed July 6, 2009

This was our first time staying at a B&B and it certainly won't be our last. Robin is a lovely and warm person and a great innkeeper. The breakfasts were fantastic...the cherry baked french toast was incredible and the daily desserts were out of this world..esp the chocolate cake! We stayed in the lavender room which was wonderful...we loved the whirlpool tub and all the attention to detail in the room. I would definitely recommend staying here for anyone visiting door county

Robin, the innkeeper was wonderful. We came back after a fun-filled day in Door County to yummy, just baked cake and a fridge full of sodas. Woke up to a delicious breakfast served in such a way that I was tempted to offer to help clean up afterwards, just like I would at Grandma's. If you're looking for a quiet, comfortable relaxing getaway, go visit Robin at the Garden Gate.

Wow - where to start. My husband and I have stayed at many B&Bs and this is definitely one of our faves. Robin is a fabulous innkeeper - so welcoming and friendly - we could not have asked for anything more. We stayed two nights in the Cottage Rose room - which was very charming and comfortable. But the real star of the show (besides Robin) is her food - the breakfasts were superb (the cherry french toast and baked eggs were delicious) and the breads and desserts were out of this world. A new dessert was waiting for us each evening in our room and we're still dreaming about the chocolate, chocolate chip bundt cake - yum. The inn is conveniently located and I would definitely recommend staying here if you're visiting Door County.

The Garden Gate B&B is a charming place to spend a night or a week. I wish we were able to stay for more than two nights.
The house is decorated very nicely along with the bedrooms. Outside the bedrooms there is a small fridge to keep your drinks cold, and freshly baked cake. The breakfast was wonderful. If we find ourselves in Door County again, I want to stay here.

Our innkeeper, Robin, was a wonderful hostess, and the Garden Gate is a cute, very well-kept B&B. The rooms were adorable and had everything we could need from fireplace to DVD's and CD's and even snacks, right outside our rooms. The breakfasts were delicious, Robin is a great cook. We had a great two days attending the Farmers' Market, the "Ladderhouse Bar", which Eli Matteson was playing at, the "Boomerbaby Show". We would highly recommend Garden Gate to anyone visiting Door County.

This B&B is charming and appointed with lots of nice ammenities. We enjoyed the clean accomodations, filling breakfasts, and scrumptious desserts available in the evenings. We never went hungry. Each room has a TV with VCR or DVD player and plenty of movies to choose from. We appreciated the snacks available for us and the availability of a mini-refrigerator if we needed one.

Robin is very friendly and has a lot of knowledge about what to do and see in the area. We stopped at numerous places she suggested and weren't disappointed.

We weren't sure what to expect when we saw the ship building plant across the way, but it was never an issue. The B&B is in a prime location for walking around Sturgeon Bay. Her gardens are lovely and she promised to share some seeds with us from one of her unique plants. Robin also sent us a picture she took of us inside her home so we have a remembrance of our time there. She really goes above and beyond for her guests. My husband and I highly recommend the Garden Gate B&B to all visitors planning a stay in Door County.

  • Liked — The price was right, room was very clean, innkeeper friendly, the list goes on and on ...
  • Disliked — I only have good things to say.

This was our second stay at the garden gate, and we felt like we were visiting an old friend. Robin, our innkeeper, was warm and cordial to us and the other guests dining at breakfast. The breakfasts were varied and so good and bountiful that we did not need to bother with lunch! Her cherry custard french toast should be a classic Door county recipe, if it isn't already. Robin adjusted her egg dish to suit our taste, and it was tasty and satisfying. Fresh cake was under glass upstairs by our room each evening. Robin was hosting musicians for the steel bridge music festival, and it was fun talking to them and later, seeing them perform. Putting up the musicians was not only a nice act of community service, but made us feel more a part of this grass roots festival of songwriting and performing. We were able to walk to all the venues and save ourselves the trouble of parking, since the B&B is close to downtown, the shipyards, and the steel bridge. Returning to the B&B at night, we could peek into the shipyards and see the luxury yachts under construction.
