Get your calendar handy to mark the dates for some fun and exciting events as we gear up for the spring season in Door County. Put on your running shoes and start training for The Door County Half Marathon & Nicolet Bay 5K , scheduled for May5th/6th. Have you ever wanted to see how the huge cargo ships and yachts are built? Take a Shipyard Tour in Sturgeon Bay, scheduled for May5th/6th. That’s your chance to get an up close look at the shipbuilding process. A fan favorite event is the the Scottie Rally & Parade of Scots (you don’t have to own a Scottie dog or wear a kilt to enjoy the parade) will begin at 11:00 am in Baileys Harbor on May 6th. When you’re out driving anywhere, do you put on the brakes when you spot a garage sale? Then Sister Bay is the place to be for the Village Wide Rummage/Garage/Yard Sale on Saturday, May 20th. Antiques, retro, vintage or modern furniture, collectibles, tools, toys, clothing, decor items and refined “junque” will delight you as you cruise the streets of the village in the search of treasures. After a day filled with adventure and good times, you’ll want to rejuvenate from all the activities and Birchwood Lodge is the place to relax. We’re close to EVERYTHING in town….events, shops, bars, restaurants, (check out the new CHOP restaurant and Boathouse On the Bay downtown). Our Premier Suites and Grand One Bedroom Suites have comfy king size beds with new, fresh bedding, double Jacuzzi whirlpool tubs and, in case there is still a little chill in the air, the gas fireplace will add some warmth and ambience while you rest. Now, if we’ve tempted you to take a spring break in beautiful Door County, give us a call at our toll-free phone number, 866-854-7195 and we’ll assist you with a reservation for an enjoyable stay with us.
