Those of you who have visited Door County in the recent years have seen the water level of Lake Michigan rise and fall in what has been referred to as “seven year cycles”, with the lake at its lowest level about 10 years ago. Just the opposite is happening now with the lake surpassing the previous highest record level. It’s interesting now to observe the piers and docks nearly covered by water and the swimming dock in Sister Bay is completely submerged. The beach is still usable and people are enjoying all kinds of activities in and around the water. We invite you to come up to Birchwood Lodge in Sister Bay and witness this water phenomenon in person. It’s only a short walk from your suite at Birchwood Lodge to the waterfront, so book your room today at 866-854-7195, or online at As they say, “come on in, the water is fine”.
