Ephraim’s 49th annual Fyr Bal festival is this coming weekend, the 14th thru the 16th. This year’s schedule of events contains new activities to the shore of Eagle Harbor. Of course the main event of the weekend is the tradition bonfires lining the shores of Eagle Harbor (official lighting begins at 8:30) and the fireworks to comence after sunset (approximately 9:30), which are both a definate must see. But here are some other activities I’m excited to see on the schedule, and I think are worth checking out:
-Guided hikes at Anderson pond nature preserve. I recently learned the location of Anderson pond and think it’s a little gem hidden in Ephraim that not many people are aware of.
-Stand up paddle board races at the Ephraim Kayak Center, located on South Shore Pier. This is my favorite water sport, and the crew at the kayak center are super friendly and helpful getting you on on of these things! Be sure to partake in this excellent activity.
-High Point Inn is happy to sponsor a groovy line-up of live music occuring both at the village hall and harbor side park all day long on Saturday.
-Anytime on Saturday walk next door to Red Putter for a round of mini-golf for a special fyr bal rate!
-Free Body Flow and Zumba classes at Anderson Dock. For the early active risers, registration is at 7:15 a.m. Enjoy a fun class and a great view of the harbor.
Hitch a ride with the Door County Trolly, giving free rides all day long. You won’t have the hassel of finding parking, just walk next door to our neighbors Fine Line Designs and hop on the trolly, they’ll be going back and forth till 5 pm.
Our smiling front desk staff will be happy to hook you up with a schedule of events and answer any questions you might have.

“look mom, no hands!”
I enjoyed my first ever segway ride this past Monday. Friends who work at the English Inn, and I treated our beloved English Inn compadre to a segway tour through Peninsula State Park for his 17th birthday. The tour, lead by Segway the Door tour guide Linda, was super helpful getting us comfortable on the segway in the beginning, helping us through some of the more difficult terrain, and leading us through the park and highlighting great vistas. It was a wonderful and fun way to explore the park. My favorite part was sighting a plethera of Door County wildflowers dotting the roadways: trilliums, forget-me-knots, and lily of the valley.
my companions lagging behind
To see the peninsula from a different perspective, try something new and tour the peninsula on a segway. Segway the Door tours also have tours in Bailey’s Harbor, Egg Harbor, Elison Bay, Sturgeon Bay, and Cavepoint in Jacksonport (can’t wait to go explore Cavepoint on a segway).
Looking to experience something new? Reserve at the High Point Inn and you can enjoy a theraputic soak in our indoor whirlpool after your segway tour. Contact us now! Call us Toll Free: 800-595-6894 or Local: 920-854-9773 or send us an email at email@example.com

Our outdoor pool gearing up for the summer season
The sun is shining today in Door County (at least for now) and I am currently enjoying the view of our outdoor pool which has just awoken from winter hibernation. Kent, our maintenance dude is currently detailing the pool, getting it in ship shape condition for active duty. Tempted by the thought to relax poolside and soak up some sun, I’ll settle for the happy images of summer sun and swimming floating through my mind, especially since the temperature is not cooperating for outdoor lounging. Until our summer heat wave arrives, guests at the High Point Inn will be able to enjoy our heated outdoor pool starting Memorial Day Weekend, Friday May 24.
Cheers to poolside doses of sunshine!

Greetings, Libbi here, a jolly employee at the High Point Inn. I’ve been rockin’ the HPI going on two years now. This being only my second winter working in Door County, I’ve had to be a bit more patient for spring to arrive this year compared to the enjoyably mild winter I experienced last year. To help encourage spring time at the High Point Inn, I drew flowers in the snow banks hugging our walkways for our guests and arriving employees to enjoy. I can’t wait for the abundance of real flowers that color the outside of the High Point Inn to emerge from our slowly shrinking piles of white, truly putting an end to this never ending winter.
Are you also experiencing spring fever? Call and make a reservation to enjoy our great Spring Awakening Special today!

Right about now we thought we would be talking about the Door County Half Marathon that is LESS THAN a month away. But never let it be said that we at the High Point Inn are not flexible. In honor of our new snow we are going to post a few photos to remind you that the High Point Inn is an excellent destination in ANY weather.
So come take a break. We still have some great off season specials for you to take advantage of, as well as the famous High Point Inn hospitality.
Sound perfect? We think so too. Call or email us today!

Easter at the High Point Inn is waiting for you. Enjoy an Easter Egg Hunt with the kids. Attend a traditional Easter service. Prepare the Easter feast in your fully appointed kitchen in your suite.
And may we suggest as part of your Easter feast: prepare one of Faye’s Favorites! The High Point Inn’s own Faye Blank knows her way around a kitchen and these are one of her favorites…
These adorable mini cheesecake baskets fit right in with spring’s other cute sights. And they’ll take you only a few simple steps. Fun to make, and even more fun to eat. Time prep: 10 min. Total: 2 hr 30 min. Servings total: 12 servings
What You Need
2 pkg. (8 oz. each) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
½ cup sugar
½ tsp. vanilla
12 NILLA Wafers
1-1/2 cups BAKER’S ANGEL FLAKE Coconut, tinted green
36 small jelly beans
12 pieces shoestring licorice (4 inch each)
HEAT oven to 350°F.
BEAT cream cheese, sugar and vanilla with mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add eggs; beat just until blended.
PLACE wafer on bottom of each of 12 paper-lined muffin cups. Spoon cream cheese mixture evenly over wafers.
BAKE 20 min. or until centers are almost set. Cool. Refrigerate at least 2 hours. Top evenly with coconut and jelly beans just before serving. Bend each licorice piece, then insert both ends into each cheesecake to resemble the handle of a basket. Keep refrigerated.
Kraft Kitchens Tips
These baskets are sure to be a hit at an Easter egg hunt. They are fun to make, and each basket is an easy portion to serve.
How to Tint Coconut
