Making Door County a Great Crafty Escape: Group Outings at the High Point Inn

Door County is known for its arts, probably do to the natural beauty that surrounds us here and the inspiration it can provide.  This time of year tends to get drawn out due to the cold air and often gray skies, but now it’s time to take advantage of this quiet time and plan a getaway with your favorite craft!

At High Point Inn we have a conference room that is perfect for group gatherings.  Simply get your scrap booking, quilting, sewing, photography, beading or other craft group together and head our way!  Stay with us for a few days and book the conference room for no extra charge.   Until May you can even take advantage of our 3 for 2 special! 

This is the right time of year to get the group together and on the road!  Plus, what better place to practice your arts and crafts than in Door County?
