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.

A Positive Outlook on Negative Temperatures in Door County

As in most of Wisconsin, here in Door County we have been experiencing some very cold temperatures.  It is true that the cold can be hard to face when we have to run outside to get something, or hop into a vehicle that has yet to warm up, but there is a positive side to these colder than cold temperatures.  Here are some ways to see the positive in these negative temperatures!

1) The cold weather makes a great excuse to stay in bed a little longer, enjoying the warmth of the sun without the coldness of the air.

2) With the bitter cold it is easy to feel guilt free while staying indoors and enjoying a great book while sitting by a warm fire, or bundled up on the sofa. 

3) The cold weather may keep us indoors, but it keeps us indoors together!  Family time can flourish in the cold temperatures with great board games, tasty treats and little chats.

4) A fine warm dinner tastes even better.  Sitting back with a nice glass of wine and a tasty entree while watching the weather outside is very satisfying!

Today on the Door Peninsula I saw a family out for coffee and hot chocolate at Base Camp coffee shop after a day of sledding on Hill 17.  It was a reminder of how the winter can bring people together.

Here at High Point Inn the fireplace has been on and everyone’s gathered together.  Puzzles have been put together, games of checkers and ping-pong have been going all day, the pool and hot tub have been active with families and everyone’s smiling! 

So don’t let the weather get you down!  This is the time for some quiet relaxation and family bonding!

Eagle Harbor in Historic Ephraim

Here at High Point Inn we are a short drive from Eagle Harbor.  This particular harbor offers beautiful sunsets, a view of Peninsula State Park across the way, and a great place to stroll and listen to the waves. Although the December temperatures are approaching this is still a great place to visit. 

One of the reasons this is such a great time to see Eagle Harbor is there have been swan sightings recently.  The swans just enhance the beauty of the water and the surrounding shore. 

While taking in these great views of Eagle Harbor there are a few great places to stop and warm up.  There is a quaint coffee shop in town called Leroy’s located in the Water Street Shops.  If you are looking to grab a bite to eat The Chef’s Hat is also open offering breakfast, lunch and dinner.  There are also some shops open for browsing and perhaps getting some of that holiday shopping taken care of.

Believe it or not this is a great time to visit Door County!  It may be quiet but the nature of the Door Peninsula is great year round!

What to do on a cool fall day in Door County

Door County is a great place for both fun and relaxation.  Here are a few ideas of how to enjoy a cool fall day on the Door Peninsula.

1) Start the day off right with a trip to one of the local coffee shops.  There are great options in every town!  In Ephraim there is Leroy’s, in Sister Bay there is Base Camp and Drink Coffee, in Baileys Harbor there is Espresso Lane and The Blue Horse in Fish Creek. 

2) Go antiquing, finding hidden treasures in the fall is especially fun! 

3) Take a hike or a bike ride through the state park of your choice.  This is a good way to warm up and soak up the great autumn air. 

4) Enjoy a nice relaxing sit down meal at one of the many great restaurants

5) Take in a sunset to see the fall colors at their best.  As the sun goes down you can see the trees in a different light, just make sure to bring an extra layer because once the sun has set it gets chilly!

6) Cozy up for the rest of the evening!  At High Point Inn you can sit by the fireplace or take a nice soak in the hot tub.

No matter what you do make sure to enjoy all the beauties of autumn in Door County this year; the weather has made it amazing!
