A Door County Winter Wonderland: a perfect weekend to getaway!

Although we got snow in Door County at the beginning of December, nothing was really sticking… but at this very moment the peninsula has become completely white with snow!  It has come in time for all the fun winter activities that are going on here this weekend!  If you are in need of some holiday fun in Door County here are some great ideas!

1) TAPworks Kids Production is performing Miracle on 34th Street this weekend! 

2) At the Ridges Sanctuary it is the Ridges Natural Christmas; there will be crafts, beautiful hikes and tasty treats!

3) Go to the Renaissance Christmas Concert at Birch Creek for some holiday music and good company.

4) Take a Winter Wonderland trolley tour!  This includes 2 winery stops, a sleigh ride and a cozy lunch at the White Gull Inn!

The Holidays in Door County

Reindeer in Ephraim!

Reindeer in Ephraim!

Christmas in the Village was this past Saturday and it’s looking to be a fun tradition for Door County!  Even more Christmas decorations are up around the peninsula and the shopping has definitely begun. 
Keep Door County in mind for your Christmas shopping this year!  The shops in the area have great unique items, special deals and of course beautiful surroundings.  Plus with the shop local initiatives there are even better deals to be had!
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!

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!

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!

Sunshine Over the Door Peninsula

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!

Welcoming November on the Door Peninsula

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!
