My husband and I stayed at the Garden Gate for a quick weekend get-away. First, the location was unique - near a company that repairs ships (I love ships!) We checked in around 7:00 and shortly after our arrival, Robin (our hostess) was already setting out a delicious cake on a buffet that sits on the same level as the guest rooms. This is also where she sets out coffee/tea in the morning. Plus there is a small fridge at the buffet that Robin stocks with a mix of pop. The next morning, we had great conversation with the 3 other couples that were staying there - all while enjoying one of the best breakfasts I've had in a long time. I'm high maintenance on my coffee - her coffee was so good! My husband and I agreed on that! Before we set out for the day, Robin gave us a tip on how to avoid the traffic going north into Door County. Fabulous! That night, she set out another one of her scrumptious cakes. In addition, because it was my birthday, she had given me a card, cupcakes, and a bottle of cherry wine! And, of course, another great breakfast with conversation the next morning. A gracious hostess really adds to a weekend at a B&B!
