Here’s a good suggestion, make a resolution for 2020 that won’t require dieting, or taking out a gym member ship, or stopping a bad habit. Instead, resolve to take a vacation to Door County during the off season, with a stay at Birchwood Lodge in Sister Bay. There’s plenty to do and best of all, it’s not crowded. Ignore false rumors that the shops are closed, restaurants aren’t open, breweries and wineries have limited hours, there’s no live music events (see the Door Community Auditorium website for concerts and show schedules), theaters are off for the winter (check out Third Ave. Playhouse for their roster of shows). The same trails that you like to hike in spring, summer and fall are even more envigorating and especially beautiful with a cover of snow in winter. Did we mention that there are some special add on packages that will enhance your stay, like The Valentine Special, The Three Night Special, The Winter Snowshoe Special, and the extra special Magic Delights Special that includes a sleigh ride (weather permitting). Now raise your hand a say out loud, “I resolve to stay at Birchwood Lodge (call at 866-854-7195 , or reserve your suite on-line at www.birchwoodlodge.com) at least once in the off-season in 2020. We’ll see you in January, February, March or April.
