The location on the "quieter" end of Fish Creek is perfect because you can walk to all the restaurants, shops and even the bike rental at the entrance to the state park. Our room at the Inn was small but very clean, and eventually had everything we needed for a long weekend were we would be spending our days outside....

We spent three nights at the Inn. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. Coffee available in the lobby before breakfast was appreciated. The baked goods were excellent but the frittata disappointing. Our deluxe room was large enough and was nicely decorated. It might might be difficult for older people to get in the bathtub. They are planning to redo...

A wonderful place to stay in Fish Creek. A historic B&B so the rooms are small and quaint but comfortable. Breakfast is included and is very good. The restaurant serves sophisticated cuisine but is fairly pricey. Location is excellent and is within walking distance of most Fish Creek attractions, shops and restaurants. For the price this is about the best...

We had an absolutely fabulous time at the Whistling Swan Inn. LOVED the décor! The FREE breakfast was the perfect start of a day jam packed with hiking, kayaking, shopping etc. We also had dinner at the restaurant. The sunroom is just an amazing location for both breakfast and dinner. The food was excellent. The only negative I would mention...

Just loved this old, restored inn. The restaurant is as good as anything in the big city. Just tremendous service! The place has such character & is so beautifully decorated. It is also conveniently located int he heart of Fish Creek.

We chose to stay here based on our experiences at Hinterland Gastropub in Milwaukee. What a lovely place beyond our expectations. Of course, the quaint and friendly setting of Fish Creek itself was a plus, but the Whistling Swan experience was tops all the way from booking our rooms online, talking to staff on the phone and actually staying. We...

This small bed and breakfast has major character and class without the high price tag. We came up to Door County a little early in the season and however we had such an amazing time at our stay here. There are about 6 or 7 guest rooms here and im sure this place is quite busy during the high season...

This B&B is different in that they have a formal dining room with a terrific chef and top notch waiters to guide you. My wife & I returned for the second time and were pleased to see the same team is still in place. While the rooms are fairly standard the dining experience is second to none. Regardless of where...

Contemporary decor & welcoming feel. The staff went above and beyond with not only creative complimentary ganache and dessert but also the freshest ingredients! The pumpkin soup was rich and creamy. Pappardelle was completely homemade and wonderful. Was very pleased to learn that the Whistling Swan supports local farmers too! Only open on select days, you don't want to miss...

We arrived at dusk and the warm glow of soft lights and the embracing scent of a wood fire was immediately welcoming as we walked in. We were tired from the drive and hungry so it was an easy sell to stay for dinner once we saw the menu. It was just the atmosphere and food I was looking for...
