Winter in Door County: Coffee and Baked Goods at Base Camp in Sister Bay

basecamp

Joel and Alicia Kersebet have two thriving businesses in Sister Bay. Ecology Sport and Base Camp Coffee. Both share an historic building that was once the Town Shop of Liberty Grove at the north end of Sister Bay. Base Camp Coffee is located in the basement of the building and features coffee and Espresso drinks, and menu items starring Joel’s exquisite baked goods – all made onsite. Today’s menu included Artichoke Strata, Squash and Lentil Chili as well as French (Joel hails from France) style bakery including melt in your mouth croissants and hearty scones.

Upstairs you can find clothing and gifts for the active lifestyle. Headed on a vacation that includes walking tours? Ecology Sport has the proper footwear as well as clothing that will travel well in any climate. Both businesses are open year round with a break in March.

And after a busy day hiking the roads or skiing the trails of northern Door County, relax in your suite at the High Point Inn in Ephraim. Maybe that includes a glass of wine in front of the fireplace or perhaps a soak in the in-room whirlpool. Book a room for our Valentine’s special or call ahead to watch the Super Bowl in your suite on HDTV! Bring your own Packer pennants!

The Holidays in Door County

Reindeer in Ephraim!

Reindeer in Ephraim!

Christmas in the Village was this past Saturday and it’s looking to be a fun tradition for Door County!  Even more Christmas decorations are up around the peninsula and the shopping has definitely begun. 
Keep Door County in mind for your Christmas shopping this year!  The shops in the area have great unique items, special deals and of course beautiful surroundings.  Plus with the shop local initiatives there are even better deals to be had!
We would love to have you join us at High Point Inn for your holiday shopping (and a little relaxation too)!

Eagle Harbor in Historic Ephraim

Here at High Point Inn we are a short drive from Eagle Harbor.  This particular harbor offers beautiful sunsets, a view of Peninsula State Park across the way, and a great place to stroll and listen to the waves. Although the December temperatures are approaching this is still a great place to visit. 

One of the reasons this is such a great time to see Eagle Harbor is there have been swan sightings recently.  The swans just enhance the beauty of the water and the surrounding shore. 

While taking in these great views of Eagle Harbor there are a few great places to stop and warm up.  There is a quaint coffee shop in town called Leroy’s located in the Water Street Shops.  If you are looking to grab a bite to eat The Chef’s Hat is also open offering breakfast, lunch and dinner.  There are also some shops open for browsing and perhaps getting some of that holiday shopping taken care of.

Believe it or not this is a great time to visit Door County!  It may be quiet but the nature of the Door Peninsula is great year round!

It’s Beginning to Look a lot like Christmas in Door County!

Although the feeling of Thanksgiving is still lingering on the Door Peninsula, Christmas is in the air! 

As we’re still recovering from that Thanksgiving feast, Christmas lights and trees have been put up in towns and The Lodge (106.9) has started playing classic Christmas songs!  Here at High Point Inn we have our own decorations up and families are gathered in the lobby by the warm fireplace. 

This is a great time to take advantage of our after Thanksgiving special and get into the spirit a little early!  Here in Door County there are local shops open with great holiday specials, cozy coffee shops to take a relaxing break at and pretty lights to see as you drive along the quiet roads. 

Next weekend Ephraim even has its own Christmas celebration (reindeers and all)!  Come join us to get into that holiday spirit and find a little relaxation along the way!

Welcoming November on the Door Peninsula

We have now entered into the month of November and the change is obvious here in Door County.  The streets have quieted down and the air is crisp and cool.  The mornings are even welcoming us with a dense covering of frost that makes everything sparkle. 

This is the perfect time of year to take a long drive to the northern part of the peninsula.  The colors may have faded, and the leaves may have fallen but the views are still spectacular.  In fact, with the leaves now gone from the trees the landscape appears more open and the view is extended. 

This is also a great time to get some holiday shopping done in a nice relaxing atmosphere.  The air may be crisp but it is still pleasant to stroll along the sidewalks and check out all your favorite shops.  Just a short walk from High Point Inn are The Shops of Green Gables along with The Blue Dolphin House and The Rusty Rabbit.  Even more shops are just a short drive into Fish Creek or Sister Bay.

Come join us this November! Make sure to check out the upcoming events at www.doorcounty.com!   Also feel free to contact us here at High Point Inn!
