Spontaneous trip to Door Country left us scrambling for a room on a very busy summer weekend recently. Hadn't previously spent a lot of time on the Lake Michigan/east/quiet side of Door County. We were able to get a room #7, top floor. We hadnt stayed in a B&B before. We usually condo or hotel it but our stay there has made converts out of us. Wonderful historic old building with large well decorated and appointed rooms with stunning views of the harbor. Private balcony with chairs and a hammock. Room had binoculars and wildlife reference books, They provide adult bikes including 1 tandem, kayaks and stand up paddle boards for the guests to use down at the private dock. I could go on and on. Sunday morning there was a Farmers Market across the street. Yes, per some other reviews here, it's not a big over the top breakfast like some B&Bs but more a light continental but we enjoyed it. If you want a big breakfast, there are lots of options in town. We found the couple and their sons that run it super friendly and very helpful. Took their advice on dinner and went to Chive. Excellent meal. Relaxing walkable quiet little town. We will definitely be back.
