Midwest Living Review
Finding a good B&B in Door County, especially the county’s gateway town of Sturgeon Bay, is about as difficult as finding a scenic shoreline in the area. Sturgeon Bay, in particular, is full of enormous Victorian homes converted into cozy lodgings. We haven’t tried them all, but the Scofield House certainly has to be in the town’s top tier. This classic 1902 painted lady in the town’s heart has six guest rooms and all the staples of a by-the-book B&B: giant porch with swing, wooden floors, lovely Victorian furniture, excellent breakfast. We stayed in the Gazebo Room, which had a gas fireplace and the welcome added advantage of a private entrance from the parking area. We also put a premium on the large bathroom, which included both a shower and an enormous tub. Breakfast was served at a time we chose and included moist white chocolate cherry scones that were among the best we’ve ever had. And in a nod to modern guests’ desires, the inn offers free Wi-Fi. Rates from $80 in the off-season and from $105 in the main season.
