A Snow covered Door County! Better late than never they say!

 

Winter Wonderland: The courtyard at High Point Inn on March 3rd

Within just a few days the scenery in Door County  has changed completely!  We were beginning to get spoiled here with the spring-like days and mild weather patterns; a winter where hikes were more common than skiing or snow-shoeing!  We have yet to see how long this full snow coverage will last, but now is the time to enjoy the beauty of winter in Wisconsin!  The main roads have now been cleared after the storm; it isn’t too late to come join us in Ephraim at the cozy High Point Inn!

 

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! 

A Sunny May Day in Door County!

Today has been one of those spring days you wish you could hold onto.  In Door County the sun has been shining all day, the birds have been busy and people are taking the time to sit out and enjoy the day!

Soaking up the sun at the High Point Inn

The trees are blooming and soon cherry blossoms will be just around the corner!  There is much to see and do here in Door County now that the roads are clear and the sun is shining!  Even if you just want to sit back and relax, this is a beautiful time to see the Door Peninsula! 

At High Point Inn we invite you to join us this spring and relax on your own private patio or on our front porch that is perfect for days like today!  Make sure to check out our spring specials on our website and join us in celebrating the long awaited arrival of spring!

A DOOR COUNTY poetry contest at High Point Inn!

Birding in Door County: a reminder of spring

Even with the recent snow fall here in Door County there are still hints of spring all over the peninsula.  One of these reminders of spring is the birds that have returned.  In the morning you can hear the blend of bird songs and see them flying between trees. 

Birding in Door County can be a year round activity but starting in the spring and through the summer there are many varieties of birds to be seen.  One great place to visit and bring the family to learn and see more is Peninsula State Park.  This park features a great nature program that includes guided hikes and the White Cedar Nature Center.   On April 16th there is a specific hike that will be spent looking for certain species at Weborg Marsh.  There are also other great State Parks to choose from for making your own birding experience. 

I personally recommend visiting as many parks as you can and also taking a scenic drive along the many Door County back roads.  You never know what you might see!  Lately I have had a very beautiful cardinal visiting my feeder in-between the many loyal chickadees that stayed through the winter. 

Come join us this spring at High Point Inn!  You can even sit and look for birds (or just find some peace and quiet) on your own private patio.

A Fresh New Layer of Snow in Door County

Right now on the quiet and peaceful Door Peninsula there is a soft snow fall to match.  In Door County we have not had near the same amount of snow that has left many snowed in across the state, but we have gotten enough to remind us that it is, in fact, still winter in Wisconsin.   

With this most recent snow fall it looks as if we will have enough snow to really get out there and cross-country ski!  For updated ski reports go to Peninsula Pulse’s website for the Cross-Country Ski Report

The snow is also brightening up the peninsula and covering the brown that was recently uncovered, leaving wonderful sight seeing! You can take a scenic drive or simply pick your favorite coffee shop and take it all in over a warm drink.  For cozy drinks with a great view try Blue Horse Bistro & Espresso in Fish Creek or Espresso Lane in Baileys Harbor. 

If you can get away come join us at High Point Inn for a relaxing stay!  We have some great winter specials going on now, make sure to check out our website for more information or call us at 1-800-595-6894.
