I have so many wonderful things to say about Foxglove Inn that I will no doubt be talking about my experience for years to come. My group of three stayed in the imminently decadent Foxglove Suite and by the second day I was already referring to our room as "home".
The inn has the classic and romantic charm that seems to be a requirement for bed and breakfasts, yet it manages to avoid any kitsch or outdated furnishings.
Our suite was loaded with modern amenities thoughtfully tucked away inside beautiful wooden cabinets, including: WiFi, Blue Ray players, flat screen TV's, and mini-refrigerator.
Though the suite's breakfast table was more than large enough for three people, we ate our breakfasts outside our private entrance on the enormous porch. The food was exceptional, and our table looked like it was pulled straight from the pages of a glossy lifestyle magazine. The owners also care about ethical business practices, and after I asked some questions they took time to tell us about the amazing co-operative from which they get their fair trade coffee.
Photographs fail to capture the breath taking size of the suite, and the tall ceilings adorned with ornate crown moulding and sparkling chandeliers are truly breath taking. One of my travel companions spent almost an hour just laying on her back staring up at the ceiling.
The bed was exceptionally comfortable, easily one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. Ever. The bedding was decadent and tasteful.
My personal favorite is the enormous jacuzzi tub, which easily fit two people with room to spare. It was, without a doubt, one of the best bubble baths of my entire life. The jar of complimentary bath salts, though small, was able to give the entire bath a lovely scent and silky texture. All of the complimentary toiletries were far and beyond better than the usual mini-bottles.
Ultimately, as the other reviews suggest, every amazing detail is owed to the astounding abilities of the inn keepers. Beyond being exceptionally friendly, helpful, and accommodating, they are also clearly talented designers, cooks, and astute business women. Their website is beautiful and easy to use, loaded with gorgeous photos you could fall into. From the very first contact I made with them, they went above and beyond five star industry standards to ensure that my vacation in Sturgeon Bay was everything I could have dreamed it to be. I was in town for a business/pleasure combination and their thoughtful advice helped me find a photo shoot location that was nearby and less crowded than my original choice, thus reducing my travel time and costs. I cannot write a review long enough to mention every way they made me and my travel companions feel welcome. Before we had even checked in, my friend was saying how she wanted to return with her husband. I am excited to watch this business grow and develop, as I know these two women will always have careers in the hospitality industry as long as they want them.
