Chanticleer Guest House

4072 Cherry Road, Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin 54235
Innkeeper(s): Dawn & Rick Germscheid
  • Introduction

    Chanticleer Guest House - Sturgeon Bay, WisconsinComfort, relaxation and romance were foremost on the owners' minds when they created Chanticleer Guest House. It shows in every plush pillow, sunlit room and cherry-pecan soufflé. Nestled among the orchards of Door County, this is truly one of the most unique Bed and Breakfasts in Wisconsin.

    Guests can choose their ideal accommodation based on how much privacy they desire. Suites in the renovated, early 19th-century farmhouse elegantly reflect the simplicity of country living. The converted barn suites are equally cozy, and feature wide-plank floors for a more rugged beauty. In the surrounding acres of virgin forest, four pond-side cabins offer ultimate seclusion and romance. At Chanticleer you get the best of both worlds - rustic charm and the pampered feel of a Bed and Breakfast.

    Come and enjoy Door County's fresh summer air. See the orchards in bloom. In the cooler season, hibernate in the lap of luxury (for the romantically-inclined, each cabin has a fireplace and double whirlpool tub). Spend time hiking, swimming in the pool or sightseeing, but you'll want to savor every moment at this Bed and Breakfast while you can.

    Comprised of a gorgeous farm house and barn, both originally built in 1915, The Chanticleer Guest House is truly one of Door County's most unique bed and breakfasts. We are located on thirty private acres, just 1/2 mile north of Sturgeon Bay. The guest house and guest barn have been carefully renovated to capture the beauty of each structure, while providing the modern conveniences you should expect in a fine country bed and breakfast.

    If a secluded cabin or cottage is more your idea of a romantic retreat, The Chanticleer cabins were built just for you! Our four luxury cottages are located on forty private, wooded acres a few minutes walk from the bed and breakfast. Each cottage overlooks a private, 1/2 acre pond, which is a magnet for deer, turkey and other wildlife.

    The owners and staff of The Chanticleer Guest House and Cabins have been caring for guests since 1993. We take great pride in offering clean, comfortable accommodations in a private and romantic setting. Open year round, The Chanticleer is here to make your visit to Door County an enchanting experience. We look forward to your arrival.
