White Lace Inn July 2003 Newsletter
How can it be that the end of June is at hand and we find ourselves rushing headlong toward the Fourth of July? There is so much to do during the summer in Door County that the days are just not long enough! July is an embarrassment of riches, beginning with Fourth of July celebrations throughout the County and ending with the 43rd Annual House and Garden Walk.
Here at the Inn, our gardens are in bloom and frosty glasses of lemonade are flying out of the kitchen. The cherry orchards that blossomed this spring are now displaying fruit that will be ready for picking toward the middle of the month. There are concerts in the park and on the waterfront, sunset cruises, theater events, summer festivals and – when the heavens cooperate – the Northern Lights! Who could ask for more?
Stay A While!
Did you know that staying with us longer saves you money? It’s true! During high season (July 1 through October 25, 2003), if you stay with us for six nights or longer, we’ll take 10% off your total bill. If you’ve only thought of Door County as a great place for a long weekend, then think again! Take a look at everything that’s going on this month and you’ll soon see that it’s easy to fill an entire week – and then some! Give us a
call toll free at 877-948-5223 to make your summer reservations.
Color Us…………….Green? Give Us Your Thoughts!
This year several parts of our Main House are in need of paint. It seemed like the right time to consider a change so Dennis and Bonnie are toying with new color schemes. As with most home improvement projects, they’re finding that the process is one part maintenance and two parts emotion! A decision to change the Main House is particularly difficult. For many years, it has been adorned in shades of pink and rose. Only those guests who stayed with us in the early years may remember that it was originally white with green trim. After much discussion and many, many paint chips, we’ve decided that we need help! So we’re turning to you, our valued guests. Take a look at these photos and then cast your vote below. Any e-mail that says, “You’ve gotta be kidding, right?” will be considered a vote for keeping the colors the same!
Please click on the picture/color you like the best and
