When winter fades at the end of March/early April, people’s thoughts turn to all of the exciting things coming up in the spring in Door County. You’ll want to get some of these special events on your personal calendar and plan for your stay at Birchwood Lodge in Sister Bay. We’re close to everything in the village and just a short drive to most of the events and celebrations going on in the county. May 4th is the Annual Shipyard Tours in Sturgeon Bay—your chance to see inside many of the shipbuilding facilities and get a close-up view of the construction of yachts, cargo boats and military vessels. May 18th is the Scottie Rally and Parade of Scots in downtown Baileys Harbor. That same day is the Village-wide Rummage Sale throughout Sister Bay—treasures galore!  May 23-25, the Ridges Sanctuary hosts the Festival of Nature, with weekend classes/tours/hikes in some of the most interesting natural areas around Door County. May 26th is the date for Maifest in Jacksonport—craft show, food booths, music and more. Most importantly, plan to tour the county during the third week of May (usually) when you’ll see the splendor of cherry blossoms in orchards in Egg Harbor, sister Bay and Rllison Bay. Make Birchwood Lodge your resting spot when you need to relax during the day or evening. Our cozy, comfortable and attractive suites can accommodate up to four people. Call us at 866-854-7195, or reserve your suite on-line at www.birchwoodlodge.com. Make this year the year you actually come up to participate in all of these special spring events. Spring Forward!
