A Midsummer’s Eve in Door County’s Historic Ephraim!

Copyright • Dan Eggert Photo

One of the beauties of Ephraim is its ability to conserve a connection to the past.  The Ephraim Historical Foundation is an important part of the village of Ephraim.  The foundation helps keep the museums alive with interactive tours, to delve into Ephraim’s rich past and of course to continue the traditional festivals.

This coming weekend is the Fyr Ball festival.  This is a celebration of Midsummer’s Eve that follows many Norwegian traditions.

This year is looking to be even more exciting than years past!  There is live music, food, arts and crafts, a used book sale, fireworks, bonfires along the water and more!  This year there will even be amusement rides right next to the Red Putter, our neighbor here at High Point Inn.

This is a great time to bring the family to Door County for a fun filled weekend!  Join us at High Point Inn and you will just be a short walk or a trolley ride away from all the excitement!  We have the outdoor and indoor pool ready and the gas grills all set up!

Make sure to check out Ephraim’s website with all the details of the event! 

Winter Fun in Door County; making the most of the cold and snow!

Looking for a last minute get away??  This is a fun weekend for a visit to Door County!   

This weekend is The Fish Creek Winter Festival taking place in downtown Fish Creek.  The winter games are a fun tradition for everyone!  There is music, food and drinks, games for all ages and even a parade (make sure to bundle up though!)  The majority of the fun and games are taking place on Saturday February 5th and anyone is welcome to join in the fun!  Plus, if you aren’t looking for crowds we have a great amount of snow for skiing, snowmobiling, sledding and snowshoeing!  Peninsula State Park is ideal for all of these great winter activities, plus the park is right near the festivities and offers a quiet alternative!

It isn’t too late to join us at High Point Inn this weekend!  We are just a short drive from Fish Creek and offer great in room fireplaces to warm up by after a day of winter fun!

We would love to have you join us at High Point Inn for your holiday shopping (and a little relaxation too)!

A Snowy December Arrival in Door County!

Nature has done its work to transition Door County into the month of December.  The snow slowly started drifting down this morning with just a few flakes and it has been coming down since.  The flakes are just right and they are slowly covering the rooftops and lawns.  It is just a perfect December 1st for the Door Peninsula!

If other things aren’t helping bring on the spirit of the season this will!  Along with this fresh snow Ephraim‘s Christmas in the Village is this coming weekend with lots of fun events planned. 

Let High Point Inn treat you to a relaxing stay with a fireplace, whirlpool and more.  Check out our website for the special running now, it’s a great deal!

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!

A Pleasant Outlook : it’s looking like a great weekend for Pumpkin Patch in Door County!

The weekend is fast approaching and the weather has been beautiful!  The sun has been shining on the Door Peninsula revealing all the beautiful new colors and shimmering on the waters of Lake Michigan.  It looks like this should continue into the weekend, which will be great for Pumpkin Patch in Egg Harbor!

Egg Harbor will have plenty of events for the whole family.  It is the perfect time to get your fall treats and to take in the fall air.  Once you’ve had enough of the crowds you can then tour some of the scenic back roads and travel to the northern part of the peninsula to take it all in.

If you are joining us in Door County for this beautiful weekend make sure to bring layers!  The days have been nice and warm in the sun but the cool fall air still takes over at night.  At High Point Inn we are excited for the weekend, we have the apple cider hot and the apples fresh from the orchard!

Want some quiet with your fall colors on the Door Peninsula?

The hectic October weekends in Door County are just around the corner.  The festivals in October (both Pumpkin Patch and Fall Fest) along with the brilliant fall colors create a great atmosphere; there are arts and crafts, many different foods and a lot of people around.  It is great for fun activities and people watching. 

Now I know not everyone likes crowds so this is a reminder that the first week in October and weekdays throughout the month are a great time to join us on the peninsula!  The leaves have already started to change and we are ready for the fall here at High Point Inn.  Call us with questions, even if it is for an update on the weather or the colors of the leaves! 1-800-595-6894

Door County Century this Weekend!

The Door Peninsula is known for its beautiful and quiet back roads.  This weekend is a celebration of this beauty and the silent sport of cycling.  The Door County Century takes place this Sunday the 12th of September.

This is a great way to tour Door County and really see the scenery.  There is even a fun group celebration waiting at the finish line. 

Along with the full 100-mile route, there are other shorter route options.  It should be a beautiful day to ride!  It’s not too late to join us at High Point Inn, come enjoy some relaxation with your cycling!

There is Music in the Air in Door County!

Door County is known for its art appreciation and for the next couple of weeks music is the focus.  At the Door Community Auditorium the Peninsula Music Festival is going on until August 21st.  The festival has symphonic concerts every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday and features special guest artists.

Also this weekend there is a celebration of opera in Ephraim at the village hall.  They will have performances both tonight and tomorrow night. 

Birch Creek also has concerts at their music performance center, and this next week is mostly big band music. 

So if you have time in the next few weeks it’s a great time to come and enjoy some quality music in a quality place!  We would be glad to have you stay with us at High Point Inn.
