White Lace Inn March 2003 Newsletter
It’s March in Door County. Snow is on the ground, but spring is in the air! There are still many winter activities to enjoy but our thoughts and hearts are definitely turning toward those longer, lighter, warmer days.
At the Inn, we’ve been spring cleaning with a vengeance. We hope that each time you stay with us, you find your room as fresh and inviting as the first time you visited. We also try to add new touches here and there. This year we’ve done some redecorating in the parlor of the Main House and we’re pretty pleased with the results. Come see us and let us know if you agree!
If you have also been up to your elbows in Windex and Mr. Clean, why not think about taking a break and coming up to see us while our
Winter White Sale rates are still in effect? From now through April 26, we’re taking $35 per night off our weekend (Friday and Saturday) room
rates. So rooms with a fireplace or whirlpool start as low as $99 per
night. Give us a call toll free at 877-948-5223 to make your reservation. Keep reading to see what’s going on in Sturgeon Bay and Door County this month and Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Live at Five!
Things were really hopping last month when Channel 3, WISC-TV, the CBS affiliate out of Madison, WI, showed
up to do a feature story on the Inn as part of a series on
Great Inns of Wisconsin. Anchors Mark Koehn and Katy Sai, along with their camera crew, did a live satellite feed on Monday, February 17. Of course, they made it look effortless, but this photo gives you an idea of what was going on behind the scenes. In addition to featuring the Inn, Mark and Katy also spent time at the Maritime Museum and interviewed Becky McKee (pictured, seated right) of the Sturgeon Bay Community Development Corporation. It was a great deal of fun to participate, but Dennis and Bonnie have decided to stick to innkeeping rather than pursue television careers! We have a tape of the show in the parlor of the Main House, so just ask us next time you’re here and take a look.

Mad as a March Hare!
What is it about this month that provokes March Madness? We think it could be the countdown to spring that has us all in a frenzy of anticipation. And while spring certainly has much to recommend it, there are a few things that you might want to do before we bid winter goodbye for another year. Take a carriage ride under a warm, woolen blanket and listen to the crunch of the horse’s hooves on snow. Go for a drive along the glistening Door County coastline before the waters thaw and the trees bud. Hike or cross country ski on the miles and miles of gorgeous trials in our parks and nature preserves.

As always, don’t forget to visit our Dancing Bear gift shop on Third Avenue. When you stop in, take a look at our new Thomas the Train play table. Thanks to our guests and customers, the Bear sells so much Thomas merchandise that they receive a new table each year from the manufacturer. This year, they donated last year’s play table to the Southern Door School District for use in their kindergarten class. In previous years, play tables have been donated to Project Headstart, the Free Clinic and the Sturgeon Bay School District.
||Our gift certificates literally flew out of here during December, but they’re a great idea all year long for birthdays, anniversaries.
