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!
Door County is a great place to be for the holidays, whether you live on the peninsula or not. The nature and quiet that surrounds you make for a perfectly peaceful holiday.
At High Point Inn we are excited for the coming holiday season! Our decorations have gone up and we have some more specials starting soon.

We are nearing the middle of November and have been enjoying some great weather here in Door County! The sun has been shining and the temperatures have actually been in the 50′s. The warmer temperatures probably wont last much longer so make sure to take advantage!
It looks like Friday won’t be one of our better days in relation to weather, but the county still has some great events that wont require you to face mother nature!
At Door Community Auditorium on Friday the high school is putting on an encore performance of Seussical the Musical. They were selected to perform for a special theatre showcase the following weekend so they bought the show back. It is a fun show, now with new choreography and a few more finishing touches. Then on Saturday Peninsula School of Art has a new exhibit starting called “The Value of Black and White”.
It is not too late to come stay with us at High Point Inn this weekend. It is a nice quiet time to come, but there is still plenty to do!
The fireplace is on here in the lobby of High Point Inn while outside the first snow of the season is falling! This is an exciting time for most in Door County. The ground is just dusted with the bright white snow and although it probably won”t last long it is our first taste of the coming winter!
There are many ways to warm up here this weekend! Visit the shops and art galleries, and have a warm cup of soup at your favorite cafe. There is also the Jacksonport Firefighters Association Benefit dance where you can support the local firefighters and listen to great live music. Of course it’s ok to just sit by the fireplace and relax too!
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!
The end of the busy tourist season is upon us on the Door Peninsula, but that doesn’t mean we are packing up too! Door County is still a great destination for a relaxing and or romantic getaway.
