Antiques, Inns, Harbors and Vineyards!!

Wow! Door County was LOVELY! I have posted some pictures of my recent trip to Door County Wisconsin. I have wanted to go there for many, many years and finally did! My dear friend Pat and I left the guys at home and headed out for a week long adventure! If you have never been to Door County, you must go! When you drive into the peninsula you go through little "villages" that are reminiscent of New England towns. It is surrounded by water. Green Bay on one side and Lake Michigan on the other. The leaves were turning and the small villages had fall festivals and autumn decor galore! Every inch of Door County is cute and decorated for the season!!! The first three pictures are of the Black Smith Inn on the Shore in Bailey's Harbor. It was wonderful and very Early American/Colonial. All of the rooms had balconies that looked out onto Lake Michigan. Next we visited a wonderful Winery called Orchard Country Winery. The grapes were just about ready to be plucked from the vines! Gorgeous!! We took a tour and did a little tasting. Mmmmmm! They grow cherries and apples here too! Next you will see Lake Michigan and some white caps! It was windy our last day in town. Following that is the Inn at Cedar Crossing in Sturgeon Bay. This is a historic Bed and Breakfast right down town Sturgeon Bay. The room had a wonderful wood archway leading to a lovely bed and it was filled with wonderful antiques! We had a great home made breakfast here too! Next is the Harbor House Inn at Gills Rock. This was a spectacular Scandinavian inspired Inn overlooking Green Bay! The Innkeepers quarters are in the "lighthouse" home! Very cute! I hope you enjoy the photos and stay warm! We have had Christmas in October here in Minnesota. About three inches of snow fell today! Thanks for stopping in!


  1. Oh my, that is just a pretty place. I'm so glad you got to go away with a friend. Like I said, leave the snow up there. Ha! Have a great day, friend!

  2. I have read about Door County for years and years in country magazines and have always wanted to go as well. How nice to tag along with you!! What fun getting away for a long weekend. Mom's need that sometimes!

    Doesn't Kindra make the nices blocks? When I asked her to design a set for each season last year, I don't think we ever dreamed they would become soooo popular! Yours look great!
