You say it’s your first time visiting Door County while you stay with us at Birchwood Lodge in Sister Bay. We recommend starting your day with a visit to Al Johnson’s (the place with thew goats on the roof) for their famous Swedish pancakes, or most kids’ favorite breakfast which is the giant waffle smothered in whipped cream. Then, head to the waterfront park where you can stroll along the shore, take a quick swim in Green Bay, or rent a boat or sign up for a charter cruise around northern Door County. To cool off in the afternoon and get your shopping fix, check out On Deck Clothing store, Pipka’s for unusual gift items, or some of the boutique shops at the Country Walk plaza. Fine art lovers will find an array galleries, Frykman Studio for photography and hand carved items, or Mill Road Gallery for wonderful oil paintings. End the day at Wild Tomato for pizza and the water view, Boathouse By The Bay for fresh seafood entrees, sandwiches and cocktails, or Fred and Fuzzy’s on the water for a light supper and cocktails at sunset. You’ll find any of our clean, comfortable suites and town homes at Birchwood Lodge the perfect place for your first time experience in Door County. We’re close to EVERYTHING in Sister Bay.
