HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED WHY DOOR COUNTY IS SO POPULAR?

If you have never been to Door County, this might be the time to visit the “Cape Code” of the Midwest.  Door County features coastal towns along Lake Michigan and Green Bay.  Door County has 300 miles of shoreline, and 11 lighthouses.  It is one of the top 5 cherry-producing areas in the county, and has the largest lavender farm in the Midwest.

Door County is exactly the kind of place you should visit this summer or fall.  It’s a beautiful place to take in.  From sea caves and sand dunes, to a great place for biking, it’s just the best!

One of my favorite places is Cave Point.  It’s on Lake Michigan.  The wind and waves from Lake Michigan have worn away limestone cliffs to create underwater caves.  On a windy day, the spray can shoot up to 20 feet in the area.  It’s located in a county park, so it’s free!  You will see daring people jump off the cliffs into the water which I would never do.  It is fun to watch!

We also have to special beaches.  Schoolhouse Beach on Washington Island and Pebble Beach in Sister Bay.  These are not your typical beaches.  These are two out of five of its kind in the world!  Both beaches are covered with millions of smooth limestone rocks.  No sand on the beach, just rocks.  The water is clear and the water colors are beautiful.  Don’t take one of these special rocks, there is a $300.00 fine for each rock.  That goes to show you have special these beaches are in Door County!

No matter what you do, you will want to spend more  time the next time you visit.  If you are looking for lodging, consider the Egg Harbor Lodge.  It overlooks Green Bay with the best sunsets in Door County.

We hope to see you this season!

DON’T MISS THE ROOFING OF THE GOAT PARADE AND FESTIVAL

The 10th annual Roofing of the Goat Parade and Festival is on Saturday, June 8.  If you haven’t had the opportunity to experience the “roofing”, you still have time to join in all the fun.  The parade begins at the corner of Mill Road and Highway 42 in downtown Sister Bay.  The goats leap down the road to Al Johnson’s Swedish Restaurant.  The parade culminates with the goats “roofing” of the season.  In case you wondered, the goats don’t go on the roof in rain or snow.  Afterwards, the parade is followed by Al Johnson’s Annual Goat Fest located at Stabbur Beer Garden which is next to the restaurant.  Goat Fest features all day festivities from live music and food, to a Swedish Pancake Eating contest and more.  It’s a celebration throughout Sister Bay celebrating the roofing of the goats.  The parade starts at 11am.  Remember, if you want to see the parade, goats walk fast so be on time! 

If you are looking for lodging, we still have rooms available.  If you stay three nights prior to June 11, you receive your last night at no charge!

A BIG DAY IS APPROACHING!

It’s hard to believe, we open up for the season on May 1.  It’s a big day for us at the lodge.  We are currently getting everything ready for your stay!  Mark is staying on top of his annual projects before we open.   From trimming trees to painting, there is always something for him to do at the lodge.

I have to tell you, it feels great that we open in three weeks.  It’s always so much fun talking to all of you, and the opportunity to meet new guests too.

On May 4, it’s the Door County Half Marathon.  In May, the cherry blossoms bloom.  It’s always a great sight to see the blooms shine under the bright blue sky.  

 

Don’t forget, we have our spring special running May 1 – June 10.  If you stay three nights, you pay for two.  The last night is free!

We hope to see you this season.  If you have any questions, please give us a call at 920-868-3115.
