Built in 1877 as the private home of prominent business man, Thomas Smith, the inn has an abundance of class and character and yet the atmosphere is warm and comfortable. Spacious, private suites boast tall ceilings, beautiful moulding, fireplaces and whirlpools. New owners are busy updating amenities and furnishings. Full, hot breakfast is delivered to your door each morning and the coffee and fresh-baked goodies are always available. Location couldn't be better as it is walking distance to all historic Downtown Sturgeon Bay has to offer.

We came here on a colder weekend and had a lot of privacy since there were few or no other guests there. Location was great, close to downtown attractions. Rates are comparable to other B&Bs in the area. Breakfast each day was delicious and the staff was very nice! Will be coming back in the future when it's warmer out.

My wife and I stayed at Colonial Gardens for the annual Christmas by the Bay weekend in Sturgeon Bay. When we were dating, we stayed there every year for that weekend, but have not had the time to get away recently so it has been a few years. We found out that there were new owners, and in speaking with them on the phone, we made plans to go up there for the weekend. Everything was almost as we remembered it. In our multiple stays there over the years, we have been there under 4 different owners, some better than others. The current owners are wonderful and have done a great job maintaining or improving most of the amenities and perks that we have come to expect and enjoy. There breakfasts are great and varied, and include coffee or cocoa, depending upon what you request to be provided with. Everything is delivered hot and tastes great. Our suite had a wood burning fireplace and the fireplace was set for lighting a fire on our first night there and the owners generously replenished the firewood for us so that we could light additional fires and have logs in reserve to maintain it for our enjoyment for hours while relaxing in the room. Visiting Colonial Gardens any time of year is a treat, but it is a magical place to stay to kick off the holiday season!

Outstanding service from our host. She was so warm and welcoming. Since we did not know the area, she suggested great restaurants, and places to see. When we first came in, warm brownies were waiting for us. YUM! I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this B&B.

Enjoyed the weekend in door county with my husband. As newlyweds, this was a real treat. Close enough to enjoy the Packer Game at Lambeau but far enough of the beaten path to ensure in a little get way. we will defiantly be back!
