We stayed here last October when our daughter was just 6 months old. The Whistling Swan was one of the ONLY inns in Door County that allowed young children and they really made our first family vacation a great success. My husband and I enjoyed what we ate here quite a bit and still discuss it. We tried several restaurants in Fish Creek and were severely disappointed, then started taking our meals in our room from the Whistling Swan restaurant and stopped eating out all to together. The bill was reasonable and the food terrific! The breakfast included with our stay was a steal and the best I've had in terms of complimentary breakfasts- homemade granola, egg fritata, yogurt with fresh blueberries, and wonderful coffee all served on a sun filled balcony and to EXCELLENT music. I wanted to buy the inn's iPod playlist! The only drawbacks were the walls were a bit thin, but I brought earplugs and it didn't stay loud long. In our particular suite, you had to walk through the bedroom to get to the bathroom from the sitting room. This was tricky with the sleeping baby. The other suite has a better set up with the bath off of the sitting room. The beautiful lobby with the fireplace is more for show. They fill the seats with too many pillows, which may be a subtle way of discouraging you from hanging out there. I love fires and so that was a disappointment. It is more for the restaurant and less for guests. Overall 5 stars!!!!
