The Garden Gate is such a pleasant place. Great location - as it's the first place on the island - and it's an easy out when you're wrapping up. My girlfriend and I stay in the Garden Suite room. And it's perfect. Spacious and not overly decorated like some B&Bs can be. Robin is so pleasant and is always there when you need her. Selections of frosted pound cake and the most AMAZING chocolate cake were on tap this particular weekend. Breakfasts of egg/potato/ham souffle on Saturday and cherry stuffed French toast on Sunday were both exceptional. Be sure to take your breakfast muffin to go - it's PERFECT for 2PM that afternoon - and no lunch needed as we squeeze additional savings out of the weekend (we did it both days). The movie selection is great as always - the new flat TVs have brought the property up a notch. Overall - this is the place to stay in Door County. Robin wasn't quite fully on her game with restocking the fridge, but I know she'll be on it next time. If you're looking to go to Door County for the first time, this is the place. And if you're looking for a better deal than some otherwise overly priced B&Bs, give this place a try.
