“Peaceful and charming!!”
Reviewed July 28, 2011

My husband and I recently returned from the Chanticleer after a three night anniversary stay. We had the most relaxing time. We picked the chanticleer for a few reasons....we wanted a private bath and like the idea of breakfast delivered to the door instead of eating all together. We stayed in one of the rooms in the barn. The room was beautiful. I loved the coziness of the room and the natural decor versus a Victorian room at other b and bs. The room was large and spacious enough to enjoy spending time in. There is a wonderful two person jetted tub and a private balcony.

Breakfast was great. It was not over done and was kept simple. I especially loved that a pot of coffee is delivered to your roomin the morning with the breakfast. It was so relaxing to enjoy the breakfast sitting quietly in the room, sitting on the balcony, or getting ready for the day.

Another great thing about the chanticleer is the small pool. We were in door county during a very hot time and it was nice having the pool to cool off which is something other b and bs might not have.

The ground of the b and b are beautiful and full of trails as they own I believe 80 acres. One could walk, sit in the gazebo, or use one of the bikes for the guests.

Of course, my husband and I also enjoyed warm chocolate chip cookies every afternoon. It was a nice treat as we came back from the day to get ready for the evening.

We did not have a lot of interaction with the owners but when we did, they were very nice. We mentioned that we were there for our anniversary and asked if he could help make dinner reservations. He helped us pick the most amazing restaurant and pick a time so that we would be there during the sunset. He called, made the reservation, and we were put at a beautiful window table.

The chanticleer is a bit far from some of the touristy areas of door county but for this trip, it worked out well as we really looked for peace and quiet.

My husband and I came to Chanticleer to celebrate our one year anniversary, and as a break from work/graduate school. We wanted a quiet, picturesque, and comfortable B&B, and that is exactly what we got! I highly recommend Chanticleer, and will definitely stay there again on our next trip to Door County. The farm is beautiful, and the sheep are very sweet, you can say Hi if you want! There are many places to find a quiet place to read on the grounds, and even when other guests are staying at the Chanticleer, you still feel like you have the whole place to yourself. It is at the base of the peninsula in Sturgeon Bay, which puts you 2 miles away from downtown Sturgeon Bay w/ shops, restaurants, etc. You are about a 20-30 minute drive from some of the other towns up the coast, and the driving is very easy.

We stayed in the Meadows Suite, very spacious, comfortable, and quite unique since you are staying in the top floor of the barn. The continental breakfasts were tasty, and enough to get you up and going to enjoy Door County. We had scones and fruit preserves one morning, and eggs and toast another, so there is definitely variety.

For our 9th wedding anniversary, we went away to Chanticleer Guest House. It's a private Bed and Breakfast. We stayed in the Grand Suite. Each Suite is different. We loved the space! It was very nice It has a big whirlpool, huge shower, big bed and wonderful fireplace. Very clean! The bed was very comfortable to sleep in .Overall, it was great. We enjoyed the quiet time with the kids! Breakfast is brought to the room in a big basket. They gave you plenty to eat in the breakfast provided. The outside was beautiful too! They have a farmette with sheep and chickens. So, it was nice to take a walk in the beautiful area. We couldn't walk the trails due to the snow. Also, my husband wanted to suprise me with a gift for our anniversary, the inn keepers made sure the gift got there before we did and had it ready for me! What a nice surprse!!

Here are what we found to be the down sides. There is no microwave in the room. So we couldn't heat up coffee or our dinner. Also, the TV is only broadcast, not cable or satillite, so don't expect to watch much TV. Also the Internet is really slow, so don't expect to get much online work time done. The breakfast is what they give you. You don't have any choices. So if you are craving something specific, you don't have a menu. :)

Also, when you get there, it's hard to find the inn keeper. You have to go to the main desk and phone them. Which means if you simply had a question, there was no one around. We did on the second day call and ask if there was a way we could get coffee in our room, since that is all my husband drinks. They ended up bring us a coffee maker and setting it up. Which we felt was very nice of them to do.

Also, our room had a real wood fireplace, the other rooms had gas. Because we had a real wood fireplace, we ran out of wood in the middle of the night and had to go get it ourselves. We didn't mind, we do the same thing at home, BUT when we got over to the wood shed, there was dog poo all over the walk way, which made it difficult to walk with wood in our hands. :) They may want to clean up after the animal.

Overall I felt the visit was a nice break from our hectic schedule. I liked the privacy. I liked the decoration of the rooms. The cleanliness and the breakfasts. I hope we can go back when the weather is nice. I would love to visit and stay in the barn!

Every year my husband and I stay at a B&B for our Anniversary and this year we decided on Door County. I researched all the B&Bs in the area and decided on Chanticleer. We were very happy we did. This place is the best. It is my favorite B&B so far of all of our Midwest travels. The pool was wonderful and relaxing. The room was so large that it felt like we had the whole house to ourselves. The grounds were peaceful and the location was perfect for going anywhere in the county. We will be returning I'm sure of it!

My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon in the Meadows suite and it was one of the most beautiful settings in Door County. The service was wonderful and prompt and the grounds served as a romantic on site escape. The room was much larger than we had thought on their website and the views across the land were wonderful. Great hot tub in the room and fireplace downstairs and fire pit outside. Highly recommend Chanticleer and we will certainly be back.

My husband and I stayed here for our third wedding anniversary. We have stayed at several B&Bs in the past and this one is by far our favorite! We loved it for many reasons including...delicious breakfast delivered to your door. We enjoyed eating together, in our pajamas, without mingling with strangers (we're not good with small talk). The grounds here are immaculate and gorgeous! Darrin and Bryon definitely take great pride in their home. We loved our stroll through the grounds during the day and stargazing from our private balcony at night. We stayed in the loft and while we would love to stay there again, we plan on checking out one of the cabins on our next trip to Door County. Thank you guys (and Jack, too) for a wonderful weekend getaway!

We love this place for our visits to Door County. The setting is fantastic with great views from all of the rooms we have stayed in. The rooms are well appointed for a B and B with comfortable furnishings, linens, and towels. Normally we stay in one of the "barn" rooms but on this visit stayed in the Evergreen Cabin. It was beautiful with a wonderful pond and forest view. While eating breakfast on on the very private deck a doe with two fawns walked up to within about 20 feet of where we were sitting before they noticed us and scampered off. The furnishings in the Evergreen cabin were very comfortable. It has a full kitchen with a huge island that seats four. Th living room has a wo level cathedral ceiling with a wall of windows overlooking the pond and forest beyond. This cabin is new and in great shape and the bedding and towels were very plush. We loved it and would stay in it again. We also like the Chanticleer because rather than doing a communal breakfast you get a continental breakfast basket to eat in the privacy of your room. The breakfast is on the lighter side which we like since there are so many great places for lunch in Door County.
