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.

Outstanding stay

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!

Lovely Stay

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.

Great experience

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.

Outstanding value

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.

Hospitality Plus!

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.

A Great Stay in Sturgeon Bay!

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

Beautiful place and great breakfast!
