With summer activities barely a memory and fall festivals and events just completed in Door County (actually, there’s always a festival/event going on somewhere around the county all year long), everyone seems to be rushing toward the holidays (read Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hannukkah, New Year’s Eve). If you want to break out of the “hurry up” mode and do something different this year for yourself, or, for family celebrations, Birchwood Lodge in Sister Bay is an ideal place to leave the rush for awhile and relax in comfort this holiday season. Our lodging accommodations can suit the needs for two people or a large group (up to ten people) in the restored Koessl Farmhouse. Let the warmth of your in suite gas fireplace take away the winter chill, or, soothe yourself in the Jacuzzi whirlpool tub near the fireplace in your room. Don’t stress about a special holiday meal. Restaurants nearby (Harbor Fish Market and Grille, The English Inn) will be open for turkey dinner with all the trimmings. If you want to prepare your own meal, you roast a turkey in the fully equipped kitchen (pots, pans, dinnerware, utensils, etc.) in our Grand One Bedroom Suites, Grand Two Bedroom Suite and Village Homes. Escape the hurry and worry this coming season and relax in the beauty of Door County in the warm surroundings at the Birchwood Lodge. Please contact us at our tollfree number 866-854-7195, or, you may make your reservation online at www.birchwoodlodge.com.
