Our restaurant serves our award-winning breakfasts, lunches, candlelight dinners, and traditional fish boils, featuring Lake Michigan whitefish, and is open to the public year-round. This year, as our family celebrates 50 years as White Gull innkeepers, we hope to greet you among new and returning guests, for a meal, a night, or a week.

Established in 1896, this white clapboard B&B inn is tucked away in the scenic bayside village of Fish Creek on Wisconsin’s Door Peninsula.  Antiques, fireplaces, and meticulously restored and exquisitely decorated rooms, suites, and cottages provide a warm and romantic atmosphere.  If you are wanting to find the most Romantic Bed and Breakfast in Wisconsin, you have found it!

Several guest suites feature double whirlpool baths. Renowned for award-winning breakfasts, sumptuous lunches, and candlelit dinners, the inn is famous for its traditional Door County fish boils, featuring locally caught Lake Michigan whitefish cooked outside over an open fire.  With its back to a bluff and its face to the bay of Green Bay, Fish Creek today is a stroll around village with historic buildings housing numerous art galleries, shops, and restaurants.

A natural harbor filled with majestic yachts in summer separates the village from Peninsula State Park, Wisconsin’s largest and most beautiful park.  Within a few minutes of the inn guests will find spectacular sunsets, theater, music festivals, antique stores and every imaginable recreational activity, from golf and fishing to paddle boarding and kayaking.

Food & Wine

Breakfast at the White Gull means waking up to the aroma of freshly baked coffeecake arising from our bakery. Homemade granola, hash browns and cherry-stuffed French toast are only a few of the selection that helped make the White Gull Inn winner of Good Morning America's Best Breakfast Challenge. A full breakfast is included with every stay. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are open to the public. Our chefs use only the freshest ingredients, sourced locally whenever possible, and prepare each meal carefully to order. Entrees at our quiet candlelight dinners feature fresh "catch of the day" whitefish and other regional specialties. The White Gull is known for its traditional whitefish boils. Picture yourselves on our patio, watching freshly caught Lake Michigan whitefish being cooked over an open bonfire as our Master Boiler explains the history. Inside, enjoy the fish, served with melted butter, red potatoes, coleslaw, fresh baked breads and our cherry pie a la mode for dessert.
