The White Lace Inn
May 2004 Newsletter
The air is like a butterfly
With frail blue wings.
The happy earth looks at the sky
- Joyce Kilmer, Spring
It’s the merry month of May
in Door County. Trees and shrubs are budding and daffodils are out in
force! Later this month, acres of cherry and apple trees will blossom
across the County and the whole peninsula will be awash in the
colors of Spring!
We have a lot going on throughout the County and in Sturgeon Bay this
month as activities start to build toward our high season. Special events
include arts and crafts shows, historical tours and the annual Door
County Maritime Museum Lighthouse Walk. Take a look below and see what
tickles your fancy this spring!
Remember that May is the last month that our winter rates will be
in effect. Through May 27, you can still rent a room with a fireplace
or a whirlpool for $70 per night (Sunday through Thursday) and $130 on
weekends (Friday and Saturday).
The viewing public may have fumbled the voting on American Idol, but
DoorCountyNavigator.com are just fine in our book!
White Lace Inn was overwhelmingly voted the Best B & B in Door County for
2003 by users of Door County Navigator, the largest independent
Door County, Wisconsin website. The accompanying review notes: “The White
Lace Inn’s Main House is a warm and inviting respite from the hectic
everyday world. In addition, 3 more houses from the same
period grace the grounds, and every one is a gem and a treasure….From the
moment you walk in, you feel a sense of comfort and peaceful splendor.”
Dennis received the award at the recent Door County Chamber’s Spring Fling
(pictured right). Thanks to all of you who voted. Those of you who haven’t
visited us yet may be interested in reading the full review at

We’d love to show you the White Lace Inn!
