We actually went twice during our weekend in Door County. Please note that we never stayed at the hotel and that we only ate there so that may affect people's thoughts on our opinions. The first time we went was for breakfast after scheduling a fish boil from the night before. My wife ordered the stuffed french toast (cream cheese...

First trip to door county and just had to experience the infamous fish boil. We kept hearing that the White Gull Inn was the place to go. The Cook told great tales as he prepared the dinner. We found watching the whole routine fascinating and the fish boil was great!! I was not disappointed!! They don't serve alcohol, just wine...

Wishing we had stayed in this inn, we settled for breakfast which others had described as the best in America. They may well have been telling the truth. Our wait was minimal on a Friday and occurred in an outdoor setting with coffee and pastries served. This is a delightful inn and restaurant, with a charming and service-oriented staff who...

My husband and I were able to stay at the White Gull Inn for a long weekend recently. We enjoyed our honeymoon there 31 years ago and try to come back as often as we can. The White Gull Inn never disappoints. The rooms are lovely, the breakfast is the best in the USA and the staff make it perfect....

I loved the room! Absolutely adorable! So cozy and inviting. We loved getting the coffee and newspaper delivered to the door every morning. They told us to call in advance when we were coming for breakfast and we never had to wait for a table, and the breakfast was amazing! We sat out on the porch in the evening and...

CAREFULLY check your confirmation. I've been a guest at this inn for over 45 years. Last week, we arrived at the inn with confirmation in hand. We'd made the reservation (via their website) in late June, but hadn't gotten a confirmation by early July. Not horribly unusual--it had taken a couple of weeks in the past. When I called, I...

I grew up in door county and this is the only place we go for a fish boil. The ambience is great - you are outside to watch the boil and have a drink ( soda, beer, wine only) and go inside for the boil. The service was great and they deboned the fish for you. The price is a...

We had benn warned that we would have a long wait on Sunday morning for brunch, and we did wait one and half hours (no reservations accepted) but they had a lovely patio with a coffee bar and coffee cake where we sat outside and enjoyed the fresh sea air. The hostess told us up front how long the wait...

Stayed here again over 4th of July. Still ultra charming, clean, and totally wonderful. Can't wait to go back in the fall, and we also already booked next year for 4th of July. In addition to being a great place to stay, the White Gull's restaurant is not to be missed, particularly for breakfast. Another terrific restaurant in Door County...
