Winter in Door County: Coffee and Baked Goods at Base Camp in Sister Bay


Joel and Alicia Kersebet have two thriving businesses in Sister Bay. Ecology Sport and Base Camp Coffee. Both share an historic building that was once the Town Shop of Liberty Grove at the north end of Sister Bay. Base Camp Coffee is located in the basement of the building and features coffee and Espresso drinks, and menu items starring Joel’s exquisite baked goods – all made onsite. Today’s menu included Artichoke Strata, Squash and Lentil Chili as well as French (Joel hails from France) style bakery including melt in your mouth croissants and hearty scones.

Upstairs you can find clothing and gifts for the active lifestyle. Headed on a vacation that includes walking tours? Ecology Sport has the proper footwear as well as clothing that will travel well in any climate. Both businesses are open year round with a break in March.

And after a busy day hiking the roads or skiing the trails of northern Door County, relax in your suite at the High Point Inn in Ephraim. Maybe that includes a glass of wine in front of the fireplace or perhaps a soak in the in-room whirlpool. Book a room for our Valentine’s special or call ahead to watch the Super Bowl in your suite on HDTV! Bring your own Packer pennants!

You are cordially invited to experience a beautiful Door County winter landscape!
