Do you have a passion for travel, sightseeing, and new experiences? Imagine yourself seated on the sprawling front porch of a historic bed and breakfast nestled within a quaint waterfront village. Birds rest gingerly on the branches of a shade tree in the front yard, the fresh outdoor air carries notes of lilac and evergreen to awaken your senses while the sunset stains
the sky with vivid streaks of yellow, orange, and red. Framed by 300 miles of rocky, scenic shoreline, Door County is home to oceanfront experiences and seaside escapes hidden within the heart of the Midwest. Bolstering five state parks, 19 county parks, five inland lakes, and 53 beaches where Lake Michigan washes ashore, preserving the majestic, natural beauty of the peninsula is engrained within the life and culture of the area. If you appreciate the environment like we do, then a Door County getaway is the perfect chance for you to escape and revel in the beauty of nature while remaining a good steward of Mother Earth.
