Birchwood Lodge in Sister Bay, is joining other businesses and villages/towns in Door County in a friendly outreach to the LGBTQ  community at large.  Gay rights, and particularly, same sex marriage, have been affirmed throughout the country.  Wisconsin is included in the growing list of states where same sex marriage is now legal.  Door County has a strong reputation as an open and accepting locale.  It is already a favorite destination for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender visitors. We applaud the fact that Door County is a place where diversity is appreciated and people can be themselves in a relaxing environment.  Because Door County is ideally situated between the ever changing waters of Green Bay and Lake Michigan, we proudly boast of our endless shoreline, lighthouses, gorgeous state parks, inviting beaches, amazing sunsets, and unique natural environment that attract thousands of people here throughout the year.  Our specialty shops, galleries, restaurants, water and land recreational outlets and cultural arts activities provide residents and tourists with a wide array of leisure time enjoyment.  As the LGBTQ community continues to grow nationally, LGBTQ individuals are seeking businesses that demonstrate a friendly welcome.  As part of a new advertising thrust to members of the LGBTQ community, Birchwood Lodge is pleased to be among the first lodging establishments in some new LGBTQ advertising.  We will offer a free, two nights stay in one of our Premier Suites, to the first same sex couple who will be married on our premises.  If you are interested in taking advantage of this opportunity, please contact Roman, General Manager at 866-854-7195.
