We went online and the White Birch Lodge looked "quaint". When we got there, we thought the same thing. Our room was old and during the night, the AC sounded like a freight train. Also, this is a "pet friendly" lodging. Our room smelled strongly of Dog. Plus the carpet was filthy. Probably where the bad smell came from. We were booked for 2 days and cancelled after the first day. The place has a nice looking bar/restaurant (which we didn't experience) and could be really a nice experience if a little money was invested. I would NOT recommend this lodging in its current condition.

This review is only for the lodging. We didn't eat at the restaurant. We got there and thought this was a very quaint place to stay. However, the room was very dated with old furnishings and filthy, stained, smelly carpet. I didn't realize how "pet friendly" this place was until I saw a few people coming out of their rooms to walk their dogs. Our room smelled of 'Dog'. The smell was bad enough but the AC unit in the wall sounded like a construction site. Extremely loud. The next morning, I asked a cleaning person that I wanted to cancel for our next night and explained why. She said that the cleaning staff have been trying to get ownership to replace the carpets for 7 years. At approx. $170 per night, it is far from worth it. I did get refunded for the 2nd night. I heard that the restaurant was good but we were busy up in Door County and didn't get a chance to try it. My opinion... DON'T STAY HERE.

The White Birch Inn is okay for the price. If you need a place to stay with a pet, then you probably will be satisfied. I will not stay again though. The girl at the desk was friendly but my interaction with the manager Rick was not pleasant. He is the reason that I will not go back.

This was our 2nd time staying at the White Birch Inn. The rooms are really comfortable, warm and quiet. The food at the restaurant downstairs is great and it is a really convenient option for dinner. The staff are very friendly. It's a perfect base to explore Door County and such great value for money.

The owner is present and engaging. She has thought of every detail to make your stay a wonderfully relaxing and enjoyable visit. Afternoon wine and charcuterie are provided as is a beautifully presented breakfast each day of your stay....complimentary! Accommodations are comfortable and quiet. The town of Clayton has many small shops with unique items and there are several nice restaurants in the area. We'll be back!

The water ran cold before I could finish my shower, the place smells like a funeral home which would make sense because the carpet looks like it was taken from one. The pizza was pretty good though, and the staff was very friendly.

We needed a quick over- night and wanted hotel/restaurant/bar onsite and allow dogs. White birch came up. Reviews weren't that great but we headed that direction. Got there - checked in at the bar - super friendly gal- Amy took care of us. she reminded us the restaurant/bar were closing at 8 pm. I had already made a reservation for dinner for 7. The "dog room" although a tad outdated and stained carpeting was large - nice big windows - super clean. Beds were very comfy and clean. Just fine for a night. Went down to the bar/restaurant had a few drinks and dinner. Food was really good and lots of variety. It appeared only Amy and one other lady were taking care of all the customers. We watched as their orders were taken and food came out quick. And everyone seemed very happy with their meals. Two parties made reservations while they were there for the following weekend! That says something. We sat at the bar after dinner and had some more drinks and again Amy was so friendly and nice. As 8:00 came and went, they sat there chatting with the two managers, made us feel very welcome!! On Sunday as we walked out, several of the other rooms doors were open and omg such cute rooms with themed decor. Not sure why they had some bad review as we had just a great experience and will be back!!

This review is NOT about the restaurant, Samuelson's, but about the lodging portion. We found out the hard way that the Inn is now owned by a corporation out of Minnesota. There was no one on site when we checked in on a Monday afternoon. Our key and welcome letter was on a table in the small lobby. Our first impression of the room was 'roomy, but outdated'. It had a whirlpool in the room and a 'faux' fireplace on the other side that was for show only. The two sitting chairs were bamboo swivel rockers from a bygone era and more appropriate for an outdoor patio. On one, the central spring was so worn that it felt dangerous to sit in the chair. We wanted to have a drink in our room. The ice-chest/freezer in a corner of the lobby had no ice at all. Then we wanted to use the internet. There was no information in the welcome letter about wi-fi log on. I texted the number in the welcome letter. After three text interchanges we succeeded in logging on to a very slow connection. The real problems came to light the next morning. We couldn't figure out how to make the shower work. Back to texting, which ended up in a restaurant employee showing up, who also couldn't figure out how to make the shower work -- no button on top of the faucet to pull up, no other switch anywhere. The shower itself was extremely dark, no safety holds, and no 'slip proof' strips in the tub. The same proved true of the whirlpool. There was no way to turn it in and, worse, no emergency switch anywhere to turn it off, if you could figure out how to turn it on in the first place. The restaurant employee told us that the Inn had no manager at the time. It showed! We had planned to stay four nights but left after one.

Sisters all meet to celebrate a birthday and were were there just for drinks and lunch. The menu was great and the service was fast with good food. I really liked how they organized the Salad bar with special plastic gloves required to handle the tongs to make your choices.

The White Birch Inn is more than a hotel, it’s also a restaurant and is in a beautiful setting. The ambience is inviting and relaxing, the food is excellent and artfully prepared. It’s off the beaten path but close to everything Door County has to offer. You can enjoy your meal in the spacious dining room, out on the beautiful patio or take it to go.
