White Lace Inn -- we're always here when you need us . . . .open every night of the year

July arrived with spectacular weather and promises of more to come in the next few weeks. If you have not been here in a while, you will notice right away the many changes made in our Sturgeon Bay Third Avenue shopping district. With construction improvements in progress, Third Avenue has become a two-way street, providing easy access to all of the wonderful shops for which we are known. Walk down from the White Lace Inn and visit these shops, art galleries, restaurants and more. It's just a short stroll and you can enjoy the beautiful waterfront. Or maybe take a "waterview" of the bay on the new Harbor Lady. We're sure you'll agree, Sturgeon Bay has it all! We're proud that Sturgeon Bay was chosen one of the top 10 cities in Wisconsin by Wonders of Wisconsin. Come stay at the White Lace Inn for a few days or more and experience the entire Door County and all there is to offer. A list of Happenings around Door County, from pub crawls, to plays to just plain fun is listed below. Too much to do? We have recently noticed that many guests have discovered they need more time in the County and prefer a longer stay. You can do all of it, some of it . . or just relax . . The choice is yours at The White Lace Inn. Reserve a room or suite with fireplace, whirlpool or both. Book now and experience the warm hospitality throughout Door County. The activities have begun and will continue through the summer and fall.

We invite you to spend some time with us at the White Lace Inn and let us have fun sharing our lives with you. Come once and you will know why we have so many repeat guests. Why not become part of our family and start a tradition of your own? We encourage you to come up and enjoy beautiful Sturgeon Bay. Have breakfast with us in the morning and then explore the shops, galleries and museums that are only a couple of blocks away. Interested in Kayak Tours ?

The secret of a good sermon is to have a good beginning and a good ending; and to have the two as close together as possible.

- George Burns -

July is just about as perfect a time as any for activities from boating to farmers markets.
Let's not forget Door County's signature ambience of "culture in the country". Painters, potters, sculptors, craftsmen, weavers, and performers reflect and enhance the natural wonders of the Door County peninsula. From your room at the White Lace Inn you can walk to the Miller Art Museum, and Popelka Trenchard Art Gallery and Glass Studio. A short drive across the bridge, (or stroll if you are up to it) and you will be at the Door County Maritime Museum www.DCMM.org where their outdoor concerts start the end of the month every Sunday through July.

There is plenty to do in July for everyone. Performances at Third Avenue Playhouse, visiting our five wineries, museum exhibits, progressive dinners and trolley rides and horse and carriage trips are just a few of the offerings. Your room at the White Lace Inn is just a phone call away! Enjoy the warmth of a fireplace and relax in a whirlpool after your day of activities. We have so many rooms and suites to choose from. Wood burning or gas fireplace, we have your preference. Quaint room or large king suite, we have them both. Stay at the Main House where your breakfast is served every morning or try one of the three other houses that are located a short walk through the garden. Each house is special in itself. Questions? 1-877-948-5223

July in Door County offers a plethora of activities to choose from. We all look forward to the farmers markets, the concerts, the start up of American Folklore Theatre's outdoor performances, the new season of Peninsula Players, seeing old friends again and making some new ones.

Try the recipe of the month, Mary's Chocolate Zucchini Muffins while the zucchini is in season and enjoy them with a cup of hot chocolate or coffee. For your convenience, all of our recipes are shared with you online. While you are here, indulge in our world-renowned homemade White Lace Inn cookies . The cookie jar in the parlor is bottomless!

Live Music, Popcorn and Beverages, compliments of Dennis and Bonnie, every Thursday evening from 7:00 to 10:00pm! The well traveled contemporary acoustic folk music group, Random Orbit, continues hanging around our parlor picking tunes for guests and friends on Thursday evenings, year 'round.  Although they have been "off the road" for some years now, their music style remains relaxed yet somehow "painfully" intricate. Guests are always welcome to join in.  Just one more reason to take a Friday off, book a room and have that long relaxing weekend you deserve!
