This was our first ever stay in a bed and breakfast and it absolutely exceeded our expectations. Robin was the most amazing hostess and made us feel at home from the very beginning. My boyfriend and I both say that was the best breakfast we have ever had (and being a world traveler, that's saying a lot!). The room was cozy and cute and we had a wonderful relaxing time in our tub for two. The tub even came with fancy bath salts which was such a nice touch! We also had a gorgeous balcony (which for night people like us was fantastic to have a safe outdoor area to stargaze and chat without bothering others). Robin also had a selection of movies available to us, and the room came with a bottle opener (perfect for us wine people!) It's like the room was made just for us - it was honestly perfect. The only things were that the bed was not extremely comfortable but it did just fine, and there was no counter space at all in the bathroom. There was plenty of space to set things in the bedroom, however, which helped. Robin also provided us with Door County cherry wine, which we'd never had, at a very very reasonable price, which impressed us very much! Overall, it was a perfect time with excellent service.

We had a wonderful stay at the Garden Gate B&B. The room was comfortable and nicely decorated, the main areas inviting. The breakfast both days was delicious and filling. Robin is a great hostess. She provided us with lots of options for things to do and places to eat for dinner. We really enjoyed the fish boil at Pelliter's. We really enjoyed Door County!

We had a lovely stay and were so please that this B&B allowed kids! We would definitely recommend bringing your whole family here to enjoy a few days away.

Robin was a great hostess. Beautiful well kept home. She shared the history of the home and surrounding area. Even shared funny stories about the community. Breakfasts were outstanding. Antiques galore.

Robin is a wonderful host. She offered a delicious piece of cake at check-in and some great advice what to see in the area. The breakfast was outstanding and the house is beautiful – a true home away from home. I’d certainly come back if I’m in the area again.

This was my wife's and mine first ever stay at a B&B. What a outstanding experience. We didn't know what to expect, but Robyn was a fantastic host and innkeeper. The rooms were decorated very nice and were very comfortable. It made us feel like we were at home. And then there was the breakfast. Delicious!!!!! We couldn't even eat all of it, and Robyn sent the homemade muffins with us for later. We would definitely stay again.

Robin is an outstanding Innkeeper. The breakfast menus were so delicious. We've stayed in Door County several times before, but this trip was our 1st stay in Sturgeon Bay. We were glad we chose Garden Gate B & B.

We go up to Door County every fall, but this was the first time we stayed in Sturgeon Bay. We're really glad we chose the Garden Gate. Robin is very friendly and knowledgeable about the area, and her breakfasts are wonderful! The inn is conveniently located within walking distance of downtown, so we had a great time exploring the city. - Diana & Todd from Milwaukee

My husband and I stayed at Garden Gate B&B for July 4th weekend and we had a wonderful experience. Robin is a great hostess! She makes the most delicious breakfast and really feeds you well. She also packs her freshly baked muffins for your rest of the day :) It was a fantastic experience and we would definitely go back and stay there again.

My husband and I stayed at the Garden Gate Bed and Breakfast for 2 nights in late June to celebrate our wedding anniversary. When we arrived, Robin greeted us warmly, showed us around the home, and took us to our room to get settled in. We stayed in the English Lavendar room and upon our arrival Robin had a bottle of chilled wine for us along with an anniversary card. We were very pleased with the thoughtful gesture. While the English Lavendar room is the most expensive in the home, it is well worth the price especially if you're seeking romance. The double whirlpool tub with bath salts was so relaxing. You can dim the lights, light candles (provided), turn on some soft tunes (provided), and sip your cares away on some delicious Door County wine. In the morning, my husband and I enjoyed sitting outside on the balcony drinking coffee before breakfast. If you're looking for a stunning view you won't get it here since the home is across the street from the ship yard, but we enjoyed watching the huge cranes move back and forth (you can hear some noise from the ship yard in the morning). Robin's breakfasts were spectacular! The table was set beautifully and had lots of fresh flowers. It was basically a 3 course breakfast with homemade muffins, a fresh fruit or yogurt parfait, and the main course. Everything was delicious and very filling (Robin suggested saving the muffins for later). The breakfast itself makes the price of the room well worth it! In the evening, Robin even had a homemade cake in the upstairs hallway to delight in. I would highly recommend staying at the Garden Gate Bed and Breakfast in Sturgeon Bay. It's not right on the beaten path, but it is close enough to get to everything you want to see in Sturgeon Bay and throughout Door County.

Garden Gate is located conveniently near downtown Sturgeon Bay, walking distance to restaurants, the Third Avenue playhouse, the park where fireworks were held and the farmers’ market on Saturday morning. We stayed for six nights in the English Lavender room over the July 4th week. Our room had a lovely private balcony and a two person Jacuzzi. Robin is a delightful hostess and a great cook who prepared delicious and nutritious breakfast that was filling enough to last until dinner. She went out and picked strawberries for us and even sent us home with a jar of her homemade strawberry sauce. We recommend Garden Gate enthusiastically!

Overall, we enjoyed our stay...breakfast was excellent and very filling way to start our day! Robin was very personable and provided us with lots of options up front for different sites to see and things to do around the area when we first arrived. Very friendly and had good intentions, but at times was extra chatty with us when we were trying to head out the door to enjoy time together as a couple.Something to keep in mind is that with breakfast not to be missed at 9am everyday we couldn't get going as early as we'd like, but may not be a big deal depending on your travel plans. Rooms were clean and cozy and we had fun meeting some other couples over breakfast. Would recommend checking into for your stay in Door County.

We had a wonderful stay at the Garden Gate. Robin, the hostess, is so charming. She is also a wealth of information about things going on in Sturgeon Bay. She makes great suggestions on places to visit and what to do after she speaks with you and finds those things that interest you. Breakfast is a treat. The ambiance is great. The food is fantastic. And the muffins, you must try.. Great location for the Garden Gate. It is close to town, so you can make a walking trip in and spend time looking around and buying things to take take home. I highly recommend this place for your stay in Door County.

This was the 3rd B&B we've stayed in and it raised the bar considerably for the next one! Robin (the hostess) is there to greet you and make you feel comfortable in her beautiful Victorian home. Her breakfasts are amazing, and there's always a hot cup of coffee waiting for you. She also bakes cookies, cakes and other desserts for your evening sweet tooth! I would definitely recommend this place to stay in!

Our hostess Robin is second to none. She greeted at the door and we immediately felt welcome and at home. The rooms well appointed and comfortable. Breakfast was fantastic and filling. My wife is still raving about the cherry french casserole. It is a great place for a romantic getaway.

We stayed at the Garden Gate in July 2013. The rooms were very clean and well decorated. The breakfasts were scrumptious! The innkeeper gave us good advice about what to do and where to eat. She made us feel right at home. The location was very convenient and close to the river where we could enjoy a nice walk. We would stay there again.
