We just checked out of Garden Gate B&B this morning. What a wonderful place to stay when doing day tours in the Door County area. Robin is a gracious host that will do whatever she can to make you feel right at home. We arrived two hours early to check in because I had a bad headache; Robin was not there and she called her neighbor to let us in so I could take a nap to ease the headache. We have been to other B&B's and arrived an hour early and were turned away and told to come back at the designated time. It meant so much to us that Robin was so kind and allowed us to check in early.
Our suite was beautiful...the decor is "to date" for the period, yet you still have a flat screen TV and DVD player. Each night you can have dessert of fresh baked lemon or chocolate cake, you can make microwave popcorn and a frig is stocked with sodas.
Breakfast is served at 9 a.m. (so nice to not have to get up so early when you are on vacation) and it is fantastic!!! The meal started off with fresh picked raspberries and peaches, an apple coffee cake, coffee, juice and water. Then Robin brought out individual ramekins of a baked ham/egg/cheese dish and toast.
This morning we had to leave early so we missed the wonderful breakfast, but Robin was so thoughtful she wrapped 2 zucchini muffins for us to have on the way to the airport.
Robin makes you feel so comfortable as soon as you meet her. She is kind and thoughtful and works hard to ensure her guests are well taken care of. While we were there all the rooms were full! This says a lot for a B&B!!!!
