A definite yes

We stayed three nights at the Sawyer House. Ruth is a gracious hostess and a wonderful cook. The breakfasts were delicious and the brownies at night were a treat. I would recommend this bed and breakfast to all of my friends.

Anniversary getaway at Sawyer House

Sawyer house was outstanding. Exactly what we were looking for. From the moment you walk in smelling the morning baking and cooking. Everything is just so inviting. Innkeeper was just so nice. For accommodations, it is astounding! Beautiful house built in 1902. Very Spacious, quiet. Would definitely come again. Recommend it to anyone.

Our Stay at the Sawyer House

We enjoyed the tour of this huge house. Our room "The Rose" was a lot bigger than expected. Location is excellent! Ruth was very informative and friendly, and made us feel like at home. Our bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was great! We enjoyed our stay and hope to be back someday.

A Delightful Experience

4.8 on July 11, 2013

This charming establishment delivered a wonderful experience for our first time visit to Door County Wisconsin. We stayed in the "Wild Rose Room" located upstairs with a lovely view of Sturgeon Bay. Our innkeeper was charming, and her preparation of breakfast made our stay memorable. By the way, those delicious chocolate brownies waiting for her guests in the living room was the perfect end to a beautiful day.

My sister and I stayed at Ruth's beautifully restored Bed & Breakfast and enjoyed a wonderful and relaxing stay. The Victorian room we stayed in (The Wild Rose) provided comfort, as well as wonderful conveniences like a fireplace and whirlpool tub. We will definitely come again.
