Snowmobiling, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, ice skating, sledding, daytime or candlelight hiking…. do any of these words strike a some interest in you? If you answered with a definite “yes”, because you like doing those things, or, if you hesitated a bit and thought you might like to try those winter activities for the first time yourself, then head on up to Birchwood Lodge in Sister Bay and get ready for a winter adventure. Regardless of where you reside, winter in Door County is different, and we might add, a little more special than other places, and should be experienced at least once in a lifetime. The snow here stays cleaner, longer. The woods and the water seem more enchanting on the bright, sunny days (special even on the cloudy days). Hiking/snowshoeing trails at The Ridges Sanctuary are marked, cross country ski trails and Hill 17 in Peninsula State Park (or any of the other state and county parks here) are groomed, the Teresa K. Hilander Community Ice Rink (outdoor, with a huge fireplace) in Sister Bay is prepared for skaters, and, all of the other scenic areas that you enjoy visiting up here in other seasons, will amaze you in their wintertime splendor. Heck, you might even want to be adventurous and participate in “The Polar Bear Plunge” in Jacksonport on New Year’s Day (watching it is fun, too!). The point is, when you need a break after the holidays, or, a cure for cabin fever as winter stretches on, we’re ready to welcome you here for an enjoyable and relaxing stay at Birchwood Lodge. Most of our suites have in room fireplaces and whirlpool tubs. Our heated indoor swimming pool with attached sauna awaits and is just steps from any room in the lodge. Most of the restaurants and shops (think huge sales) nearby are open on weekends…without the crowds and long wait times. Even if you only come up to Door County in winter once in your lifetime, it’s an experience you’ll treasure and remember. We’ll gladly help you plan a getaway experience (check-out our winter specials and packages) with just a (toll-free) phone call at 866-854-7195, or, book a reservation online at www.birchwoodlodge.com. Drive carefully and see you soon!
