Welcome to White Lace Inn...

The White Lace Inn July 2004 Newsletter

That beautiful season the Summer!
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light;
and the landscape
Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood.
- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


Greetings Friends!

If you are located just about anywhere in the Midwest, then you know only too well that spring not only sprung – it sprung a leak! After weeks and weeks of rain and unseasonably cool temperatures, it appears that the clouds have lifted and summer has finally arrived! Temperatures are rising and the spring rains have left a lush summer landscape in their wake. And just in time, too! There is so much to do in Door County this month that the days simply are not long enough!

Here at the Inn, our gardens are in bloom and lemonade is in season! Strawberries are here and cherries should 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?

Our Rain, Rain, Go Away……..And Stay Away!……..Sale!

Feeling the need to spend some time in the great outdoors after such a soggy start to the season? We hear you! We’ve reduced the rates on selected rooms at the Inn to help you dry out in style without shrinking your savings account! On Wednesday and Thursday, July 7 & 8, and Wednesday & Thursday, July 14 & 15, we’re taking $20 per evening off our Washburn and Hadley House rooms. Our Washburn House (Rooms A, B, C & D) has a lovely courtyard garden and features large, beautifully decorated rooms with queen size beds, queen size whirlpools and gas fireplaces. Our Hadley House (Suites 16, 17, 18 & 19) features luxurious suites with king size beds, oversized whirlpools and gas fireplaces. Of course, our delicious full breakfast is included with every stay! Take a peek at our Rooms & Rates page and then give us a call us toll free at 877-948-5223 to make your reservation. We’ve ordered the sunshine – all we need is you!


Whistle While You Shop!

As usual, extended shopping hours are in place for the summer. Many of Sturgeon Bay’s quaint shops and boutiques will be open until 7 p.m., Monday through Friday, throughout July and August. This summer, we’ve added a special touch. Strolling musicians and entertainers will be alternating between Madison Avenue, Third Avenue and Jefferson Street each weekday between 4:00 and 7:00 p.m. Enjoy!

New in Our Gift Shop

White Lace Inn spa-style bathrobes are now available in our gift shop. Our beautiful robes are French terry-lined, mid-calf length and embroidered with the White Lace Inn logo. They’re perfect to slip into after a long soak in a bubbling whirlpool, as a thoughtful gift or to take home as a souvenir of your stay here at the Inn. Robes are generously sized – one size fits most individuals – and retail for $55.

What’s Summer Without a Fish Boil?

If you’ve never been to a fish boil, you owe it to yourself to make one part of your Door County experience. Fish boils originated more than 100 years ago when Scandinavian settlers and lumbermen discovered how easy it was to prepare a meal by boiling the plentiful white fish and lake trout with potatoes and onions in a large outdoor pot.

Good “boilers” will spin a tale or two while they cook and the cooking ceremony itself is quite dramatic, ending with the traditional boil-over and flames shooting high into the night sky.

Many Door County restaurants offer fish boils, including several right here in Sturgeon Bay. Our staff will be happy to help you with reservations next time you visit!

Summertime and the Livin’ is Easy

Celebrate an old fashioned Fourth of July in Sturgeon Bay. Take in the ice cream social at 7:00 p.m. followed by the Peninsula Symphonic Band at 8:00 p.m. and a spectacular fireworks display at dusk. All activities will be held at Sawyer Park along the waterfront

Waterfront concerts will be held each Sunday in July at the Door County Maritime Museum. Admission is free. Concerts start each Sunday evening at 7:00 p.m. with the exception of Sunday, July 4th, when Door County favorite Julian Hagen appears at 6:00 p.m. to kick off the Fourth of July festivities.

Third Avenue Playhouse continues its big summer season with the TAP at Sunset concert series featuring artists like Sara Pace, Tim O’Connell and Jennie DeVoe . On Saturday, July 24th, TAP presents Melanie in a free outdoor concert at Market Square (across the street from the Inn). Don’t miss the opportunity to see this Grammy award winning artist and author of “Brand New Key” (“I’ve Got a Brand New Pair of Rollerskates”) and “Look What They’ve Done to My Song”. For information about the TAP at Sunset concerts and other theater productions this month, call 920-743-1760 or visit www.ThirdAvenuePlayhouse.com

How about a Supper and Shakespeare outing with Door County Trolley? This year, Door County Shakespeare presents Taming of the Shrew and The Merry Wives of Windsor in the beautiful outdoor setting of Bjorklunden Garden. For more information, call 920-839-1500.

Be sure to enjoy Dylan in Woodstock, a photographic exhibit by Elliot Landry on display at The Fairfield until August 8th. This stunning exhibit features 70 black & white and color photographs taken of Bob Dylan at Woodstock during his intimate moments away from the public.


There’s something for everyone during the Jefferson Street Festival on July 17. The 7th annual celebrations features live music, strolling entertainers, children’s activities, a silent auction and food and beverage tents. For more information, call 920-743-6246.


Gardeners will have a field day on July 27 when the Door County Memorial Hospital Auxiliary holds its 44th Annual House & Garden Walk. Five homes and gardens will be opened to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For tickets, call 920-746-1071.
