Great place to stay in Manitowoc!

We were so impressed with the level of service that the owners gave us during our stay. They were attentive and flexible to our needs. We loved the rooms and breakfast. They also recommended a place for dinner (Courthouse Pub) that was out of this world! I highly recommend Westport B&B!! We loved our stay!

This is the best place I have ever stayed. Jan and Paul go out of their way to make sure your visit creates good memories. Each room is unique with tasteful decor. Breakfast is incredible: from the elegant table setting to a breakfast of seemingly endless gourmet courses. I was filled for the day. Upon leaving I was already planning another visit. ML

Paul and Janice were very friendly and accommodating hosts. The house was beautiful, as was our room. Very comfortable bed. The breakfasts were terrific. All in all, very happy.

Perfect Stay

Our experience at the WestPort could not have been better. Jan and Paul are gracious and considerate hosts who provide many amenities that are unusual for a B.& B. and strive to make your stay pleasant in every way. The breakfasts are fabulous and the rooms both attractive and comfortable. A stay at the WestPort is sure to be one of the highlights of your trip "up the lake". Dick and Joan

Enjoyed our stay

This is the second time we stayed at the Westport and it was as delightful as the first. The room was beautiful and very comfortable, the bathroom was spacious and very clean, the the owners assisted with dinner reservations, answered questions and made us feel very welcome. I generally like to stay at different B&Bs, and this is the only one that I have ever stayed at twice. Highly recommend.

Westport Bed & Breakfast

We stayed at the Westport Bed and Breakfast for our anniversary weekend. The owners couldn't have been nicer or more helpful, the room was fabulous and the food was exceptional. I highly recommend this B&B!

What a lovely experience!

We saved our first bed and breakfast trip for a special occasion: our 25th wedding anniversary. The hospitality and attention to all the tiny details that separate wonderful from nice set Westport aside as the place by which we'll measure all others.

Wonderful Italianate Mansion, Incredible Breakfast, and Gracious Hosts

What a wonderful stay that we had at WestPort B and B. Our room was connected to a balcony that overlooked the side garden. This was great for a little wine and cheese and crackers at the end of the day. The breakfast was a treat, beginning with a wonderful fruit and yogurt dish, and then an eggs benedict dish that was in a word, divine. The hosts were gracious, friendly, and helpful in all facets. If on the way to Door County, or if your destination is on or around Manitowoc, Wisconsin, I highly recommend WestPort B and B. Thanks. Two from Chicago.

Best Bed & Breakfast!!
