Guest Reviews

This was our first time staying here. Have eaten here many times. The food is terrific. This is a nice place to stay albeit pricey. Full sit-down breakfast is included. A tray with coffee is at your door first thing in the morning. The service is fantastic. I would have given 5 stars but the bed was not comfortable.

Very cute cottage for your stay. They only have a few rooms so you need to secure a room if you are looking to stay here well in advance. When you stay at the White Gull Inn - you are brought coffee on a tray every morning. You also have breakfast included with your stay. We have been going to DC for years and this is such a cute...See More

I was in Green Bay visiting family and friends and we went up to Door County and we had to stop here for breakfast... This is only my second or third time coming here, but I had to get the stuffed French toast because it's incredibly delicious! And the hash browns were amazing too! Come here, you won't be disappointed!

We went with a group of 5 adults and 4 children. They were very family friendly. Service was quick and friendly. High chairs available. The food was delicious and fast! Enjoyed the coffee for around $4/cup with refill available. I had the French toast with cream cheese and cherries! Absolutely delicious and not too sweet! We had a great time and beautiful atmosphere.

Just visiting for the breakfast. It was a nice place to sit down for a "fancy" breakfast. Unique and interesting options (cream cheese and cherry filled French toast). Portion sizes standard with respect to price. Great location, but make sure you plan your parking and walking if you want to visit shopping. Side street parking could be limited depending on the day/time.
