What I love about Door County: The views of a High Point Inn condo owner

From High Point Inn condo owner Jeanne of New Berlin, Wisconsin:

Are you looking for a great get-a-way for you and your family to see the beauty of God’s creation, clear your head, and enjoy some outdoor activities…Door County, WI is for you.

As a young adult my first Door County experience was camping in beautiful Penninsula State Park.  We hiked, biked, had campfires and shopped and ate in all the small towns.

In recent years our trips have changed to resort stays.  We have stayed at many different places and cities but none that compared to High Point Inn in Ephraim.  It impressed us so, that we became owners of our own condo at the resort 2 years ago.  We have celebrated everything from the end of finals (our college daughters) to birthdays and anniversaries at our “home-away-from-home”.  Our guest book, located in our condo, has so many wonderful stories of other families and friends who have found High Point to be a great place to stay.  The last entry said “We are amazed with the comfort, cleanliness and hospitality we have experienced here.  The grounds are beautiful as well”

Recently a friend asked 20 people..How are you?   18 of 20 replied..VERY BUSY…if that describes you, I encourage you to take a few days to rejuvenate in the beauty of Door County….we know you will love it!

Our favorite things to do in Door County while staying at the High Point Inn:
Buy apples and jam at Seaquist Orchards
Purchase smoked salmon at Charlies Smokehouse
Bring home some homemade candy from Uncle Toms Candy store
Eat lunch at the Cookery
Sample and buy wine…from ALL of the wineries
Go hiking and enjoy the sunsets at Peninsula and Newport State Parks

WINE CAMP 2009 – Session Three: Prelude to a Wine

Saturday, October 24 • 11 am – 3 pm
Back to the Beginning
Gain a whole new appreciation for winemaking.  Join us crushing our 2009 harvest.
Learn about grape varietals, skins, fruit, taste and smell.
In other words, you won’t be able to get any more up close and personal with the winemaking process.

Prelude to a Wine
The final Wine Camp Session will be very dynamic and fun. With that being said, we do not recommend wearing ANYTHING WHITE on this camp day.  In fact, rain ponchos ARE a real good idea.  Why you ask?  Each camper will be participating in our Fall Crush.  Ironically our final session will take us back to the beginning – the grapes.  Winemaker Dave will unload the grapes from the truck, and you’ll help sort them and load them into the crusher.  Depending on the availability of grapes that meet with Counselor Turco’s high standards, there could be 6 ton or up to 20 tons of grapes to crush.

As a reward for all of your hard work sit back and enjoy a delicious lunch and of course have some VINO!
COST: $75/per person
CALL: 920.839.9660 for reservations!
Don’t DelayThis camp date is almost SOLD OUT.
