The White Lace Inn
October, 2005 Newsletter
Joyce Kilmer must have lived in an area much like Door County to be inspired to write such a beautiful poem. Yes, a ride through the Door County Countryside in October will bring out the poet in most anyone. And those of us who are not poetically inclined will surely feel the romance of the area especially at this time of the year.
So put your sweetie in the car and head up to this beautiful peninsula, which is all decked out in fantastic fall colors. All along the roadways you will find breath-taking beauty, be it the view of limestone cliffs topped with golden birches and red maples, or the sandy Lake Michigan beaches along Glidden Drive with white capped waves dancing on blue water.
The White Lace Inn is always decked out to welcome you. Our scarecrow stands at the front door of the Main House with his happy grin in place. The mums in the garden reflect the sun shining in the blue sky. Call to find out what rooms are available; weekends are filling fast. If you can sneak away during the week, room choices improve. Remember, off-season rates are in effect October 17, ranging from $70 to $160 per night weekdays. All rates include a full breakfast!
Take advantage of the quiet season in Door County. There is still plenty to do and see: Shop for great buys along Third Avenue and Jefferson Street, both just two blocks from the Inn. Up and down the peninsula shops are having end of season sales. Winter’s coming… shop for that special Christmas gift. The White Lace Inn gift shop and The Dancing Bear on Third Avenue are full of perfect gifts for every one. Gift certificates are always available at both the Dancing Bear and the White Lace Inn.
Enjoy the Pumpkin Patch Festival in Egg Harbor, October 8&9 and Octoberfest in Baileys Harbor the same weekend.
The Amish Quilt Show at Institute takes place October 6-10
The 60th Annual Sister Bay Fall Festival runs Oct. 14-16 with live entertainment, fireworks, ping-pong ball drop and plenty of good food.
The Red-hatters will be in Sturgeon Bay October 14-16 for the Midwest Convention. Check out the Red-hat sturgeon created by White Lace Inn innkeeper Cherie Therrien in front of Oscar Hanson’s gift Shop on Jefferson Street.
Take in the galleries and museums in Sturgeon Bay. This is the last month to tour the Door County Historical Museum before in closes for the winter.
October is indeed a fun filled month in Door County, so get on the phone to call the White Lace Inn and talk to Mary, Marcia, Cherie, Di or Dennis to reserve your romantic room or suite. Many of our rooms have fireplaces to take the chill off these autumn evenings and cool mornings; many have whirlpools to soak in after an invigorating day and an evening of fun.
The cookie jars are full, the popcorn is ready and the cider and hot chocolate are waiting.
Breakfast is served between 8:00 and 10:30 am. Click here to see our recipe of the month, Pumpkin Apple Streusel Muffins While you are on our website, reserve your room, let us know your favorite recipe and the dates you are coming and we’ll put it on the menu!
Visit the Dancing Bear Gift Shop and check out the Ugly Dolls, just arriving. Halloween hats are finding their way out of the shop as fast as they are coming in! Meet Gertie, our scarecrow that we acquired through the Sunshine House fundraiser. The green gift collection from Burt's Bees is a nice choice. It is always worth a stop to view the changing inventory and Michele and Sheri look forward to helping you.
