My husband and I stayed at the White Gull Inn in October of 2016. It was recommended by a friend, but unfortunately, our stay was less than pleasant. Immediately upon arriving, the staff was rude and dismissive. We had a couple *minor* complaints about our room, and the boy behind the desk was very rude and seemed bothered that we... More

We rented a cottage for two nights as we have on prior occasions. However, this time the cottage wasn't ad clean as it once was. We called the desk and the situation was somewhat rectified. Staff was friendly, breakfast was great-as usual.

Everything about this place speaks of meticulous attention to detail without being fussy. We were there in off-season, so having a room that was a joy to spend time in when the weather was unkind, and an excellent restaurant on site when so many other restaurants in Door County are closed for the winter was an added bonus. Breakfasts were... More

Quaint, hospitable, clean and completely comfortable the White Gull Inn in Fish Creek, Wisconsin is right in the center of a pretty town with its own and many other restaurant choices a mere stroll away. We were accommodated in a spacious cottage with a sitting area, a gas-log fireplace and a porch. Very cute and reflective of a bygone era.... More

As a new policy, they won't do carry outs if they have people waiting to dine in. Apparently you are to guess when that window might open and it's convenient for them to take your $$ and serve you. We've been getting a breakfast carry out there for years, but no more. They could take your order by phone and... More

We stayed 2 nights in the Welker House, #7. It had a handicap entrance and roll-in-shower and a porch that faced the rear end of the building. Coffee and paper of your choice delivered to your room at 7:30am. Breakfast was included and we had the famous Door Co Cherry French Toast one day and the next their coffee cake.... More

For our anniversary, I decided to take my husband to the B&B that our son has raved about for 11 years, ever since he proposed to his wife there. White Gull Inn is the quintessential B&B in a beautiful area of town. The staff was wonderful, giving us a personal introduction to our room which was actually like a suite.... More

My husband has traveled here for several years for business and this year we came up a few days early to relax. He has always enjoyed their signature "Cherry stuffed French toast" so we decided to book a room and stay. From the moment we arrived, we were treated with exceptional service.

In May, I needed some time to myself after a hectic Spring. I decided to head to Door County. I stayed at The White Gull Inn in Fish Creek, WI. It was wonderful. Driving to the Inn, Green Bay was in front of me. The sight of the sun shining off the water was a good start to my stay.... More
