Door County 101: how to enjoy a lazy Saturday on the Door peninsula

How do you enjoy a lazy Saturday in Door County? Here are some suggestions from Ephraim’s High Point Inn.

1) Start your morning out right and prepare a nice relaxing breakfast in your own suite with a full kitchen.  Enjoy while taking in the scenery from your deck. 

2) Take a short drive to one of our nearby state parks.  Choose from: Peninsula State Park, Newport State Park, or Whitefish Dunes State Park where you can hike or bike your way around.

3) Stop in Ephraim at Leroy’s Water Street Coffee where you can refuel with your choice of a coffee or espresso drink and perhaps a small bakery snack while relaxing in the shade.

4) Head back to the resort for a nice dip in the pool and a soak in the hot tub.   

5) After a quick snooze head down the street to Green Gables to explore their quaint Door County shops.

6) Now it’s time to enjoy dinner out at your favorite Door County restaurant

7) One last thing to top off your relaxing Door County Saturday… head to Wilson’s for a scoop of your favorite ice cream and a take a stroll along the shoreline. 

So come join us at High Point Inn for your next lazy Saturday!

Door County Wildflower Report: Purple Phlox along Beach Rd. in Sister Bay


One of the most delightful things about spring, summer and fall hiking and biking on the back roads of Door County, are the constantly changing colors in the fields you pass by. It got us thinking that we needed to add a new category to our blog (drum roll). So here it is…the newest addition to the Door County High Points blog is our weekly wildflower report – in season of course. Today’s wildflower sighting is Purple Phlox -  spotted during a bike ride on beautiful Beach Road in Sister Bay.

Wildflowers are just one of the many reasons to visit the High Point Inn in Ephraim. Contact us and we will share more reasons with you!
