“Pleasant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2013

The Inn is a marvelous and well-taken care-off bed-and-breakfast in a nice location just a little above the main drag in Sturgeon Bay, near the 3rd Avenue Historic District. It consists of several buildings around a lovely garden and small pond; we stayed in a first floor room with a nice, functioning "real" fireplace at the Garden House. The room, bed, and bathroom were all very comfortable, clean and nice; it is a pleasure to relax a little in front of the fire; wood and a fuel starter is provided. Wifi is free and works very well. The innkeeper is not the friendliest person you will ever meet, but the appearance, sleep quality and cleanliness of the inn is worth the cost. Beware of the breakfast and keep expectations low, in that case you won’t be too disappointed. Watch out for evening races at the Thunderhill Raceway which is northeast of the Inn: There will be loud car racing noise until around 10 p.m., I guess this is the case only on weekends.

We have been staying at the White Lace almost since they opened. I t was our first B&B and it is still the standard for us for cleanliness, friendliness and style. There is much to do in Door County, but sitting on the porch or in the gardens with a good book and a glass of iced tea is one of the best! We have always had great service and breakfasts here. And it is only a a short walk from the shops and restaurants of Downtown Sturgeon Bay.

Room Tip: The website has very good descriptions of all the rooms - check out each one before you decide.

Too bad. Nice property, lovely gardens with gazebo and lilly pond. Reasonable room, nice toiletries and towels. Loud window AC, inconsistent TV reception, very poor breakfast...no wonderful aromas at the White Lace Inn. If breakfast isn't important, it's a nice place to sleep.

We only had an overnight stay here, but we wanted to stay longer! The location is great,(Downtown Sturgeon Bay is walking distance) the grounds were gorgeous and the breakfast the following morning was scrumptious. A surprise was in store for us too-- acoustic entertainment in the parlor was scheduled for the evening as well. The home is beautifully appointed with lots of little touches to make you feel at home. We would definitely stay here again and I am happy to recommend it to others.

Room Tip: If you want more privacy, choose the adjacent "houses" on the grounds instead of the main...

If your looking for a beautiful bed and breakfast look no further, our 2nd time back and what a nice and relaxing place to get away for a few days (actually 4)...Breakfast every morning and very good! The property has a beautiful garden to sit around or a big porch to chill and have a nice glass of wine. You can walk to the down town area which was really nice, and a lot to do. We will be back!

Room Tip: You will have to check out the room on line, they have a very good website.

We had an excellent stay at the White Lace Inn. Dennis and the other staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was very clean and had such a comfortable feel. The peaceful garden view front the back deck was a great way to start each morning and end each evening.

For those who've never been there, the White Lace Inn is not actually just one place. The owners have bought and refurbished several Victorian style homes in an historic district of Sturgeon Bay, and it's possible to stay in either the main house or one of the other houses. Each house has it's own parking area, and are all close enough to the main house to stroll over for a cup of tea or coffee.

This was the 3rd time we have stayed at the White Lace Inn, and this time we were in the Washburn House, Suite B. It was beautiful with a huge bedroom, sitting room and bathroom with a whirlpool tub, and a fireplace that had sides open to both the bedroom (see picture) and the sitting room. Even though it is mid-June, the nights were nippy and the fireplace was just right to warm things up. Dennis, the owner was delightful, as was Laurel, the chef that prepared delicious breakfasts. We were there for our 5th anniversary, returned for the 20th and this time the 25th! Wish we could stay more often!
