I had found this Bed and Breakfast online. Little did I know that the second weekend in October is one of the premier travel times in Door County. It was very hard to find a room. At $90 (the off-season price) this beautiful Victorian large bedroom was a lot more than I had anticipated. The Sawyer House is a grand Victorian lady with very spacious rooms. Ours was the only room that did not sport a private giant hot-tub jacuzzi right in the room. We had a private bathroom and it was no problem that it was down the hall. The entire house is tastefully decorated with Victoriana but there is no overkill--it is calm, sweet, but not sugarsweet. The hostess Ruth is respectful of her guest's privacy and is not a "talker." My husband and I found that pleasant. She made a wonderful home-cooked breakfast and guests talked with each other at the breakfast served at 9:00 sharp! This is not a continental breakfast but served family style. Views from the windows over the Sturgeon Bay harbor, the gardens, and the large deck were wonderful. Sturgeon Bay is an honest working town with grit and steel--not as touristy as the Harbor towns up north yet offering all the creature comforts. Yet, within 15-20 minutes driving one can be in the bustle of Door County extravaganza (Egg Harbor, Sister Bay, etc.) with the Lacoste clothing shops, the expensive nouvelle cuisine restaurants, and the bay views from cute cafes. Don't miss Al Johnson's Swedish restaurant where the goats graze on the rooftop of the restaurant--really!
