As I was leaving the lodge last night, I noticed the wonderful lighting as the sun was beginning to set.  All of our Halloween decorations are displayed throughout the property.  You can’t believe how many pumpkins Mark and the grandkids displayed this season.  It is truly a great sight! 

Fall in Door County is a special time to visit.  You can’t beat the sunsets and the wonderful fall colors.  If you haven’t experienced fall, I would highly recommend it.  Our season ends on October 31, but we still have rooms available for a fun fall stay!
