Reviews and Guest Comments..

So many people, both professional (journalists, reviewers, etc.) and past guests, have written wonderful things about the White Lace Inn, we'd like to share some of them. In particular, we'd like to point out our listing as one of the 1996's Top Ten Inns from Country Inns, a nationwide magazine devoted to B & B's and Inns. Here's some of what Country Inns had to say: "Romance, charm, and warmth are hallmarks of this Door County Victorian. Four vintage homes lovingly restored by owners  Dennis and Bonnie Statz are linked by a winding garden path and provide the perfect getaway for the historic district of Sturgeon Bay". Country Inns has also featured the White Lace Inn's beautiful gazebo on the cover of their April 1996 magazine. For more of what Country Inn and other professionals had to say about their stays here, see the Press Clippings section below. To hear what our past guests said about us, go to the Letters section below.

This is one of the most intimate b&b's I've ever stayed in. The room we choose was called Winter Cheer and it was fantastic. The Bedroom had a queen size bed with a canopy (very romantic), a wood burning fireplace, and a huge cedar chest with a cd player in it. The living room had a second fireplace, television, and a huge sofa that you just sank into. In the bathroom, you can see through the fireplace into the living room while you are sitting in the whirlpool tub. I love the White Lace inn and the owners believe in keeping each room updated. They are lovely people and the staff is very reliable.
I would recommend this property to anyone who loves the feel of home, with exceptional breakfast, and a quaint town in Door County to explore.

My wife and I stayed at the White Lace Inn on our honeymoon back in 1995. What a wonderful place. We have stayed at other "highly recommended" B&B's and have yet to find one that compares to the White Lace Inn. It is beautifully decorated with antiques and serves excellent breakfasts. The long-time owners are very knowledgeable and friendly. I am a "clean freak" so cleanliness is very important to me. At most places I stay, I can find some part of the inn that lacks in cleanliness. Not here. The White Lace Inn is EXTREMELY well kept and VERY clean. This is the best place I have ever stayed!!

Mike & Karen Kelly: "Our first visit was eight years ago. Since then we've been back about twice a year. Bonnie & Dennis, you have created our "special place" in the world. You and the Inn are responsible for keeping our sanity in this very hectic world. Thanks for everything."

Blake & Susan Hoelscher: "A lovely place, we enjoyed the fun and laughter given by the Innkeepers. The decor & comfort made the night, the people made the weekend."

Dale & Michelle Emerson: "The same hearts and minds that set to creating such a physically beautiful place have succeeded in making this a beautifully welcome place. We'll be back!"
