Active activities at Fyr Bal

fyr bal (600 x 857)

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.

sup (800 x 602)

  -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.

Door County Segway Feng Shui

segway2 6.10.13 (800 x 598)

“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).

Live Music in the Park

June is here, and this month kicks off a plethera of opportunities to hear live music all over the Door County Peninsula.  The best part of live music in the summertime is all of the outdoor venues to enjoy.  What better way to enjoy Door County’s beautiful natural vistas?

High Point Inn is a happy sponser of Evenings in Ephraim, a concert in the park music series located at Harborside Park in downtown Ephraim. Enjoy live music while watching the sunset over Eagle Harbor every Monday evening! Check out their website for a full schedule of performers and dates.

Outdoor Pool Opening Soon

High Point Inn's outdoor pool just uncovered from winter hibernation

Our outdoor pool gearing up for the summer season

Sunny Salutations!

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!
