Ring in the New Year in Door County

New Year’s Day is a time of celebration and fresh beginnings. And what better way to do that than spend New Year’s with new friends (and your old favourites) here at our inn? The Chanticleer Guest House has been decorated for the season, and we’ve got both spacious and cozy rooms available – perfect for a party or a more intimate gathering.

However, the stroke of midnight doesn’t have to mean the end of your fun. Several events are happening this coming New Year’s in Door County. Nearby in the town of Egg Harbor, there’s the annual New Year’s parade, which happens rain or shine – a perfect way to enjoy the sights and sounds of our part of Wisconsin, with live music, food vendors, and ice sculptures.

If you’re feeling brave, you can also head down to Lakeside Park to take part in a Polar Bear Swim in Lake Michigan – though you might want to pack some blankets and a thermos of hot tea or coffee to help warm you up after your dip in the lake!

Of course, there are many things to do in Door County at this time of year, New Year’s Day or no. In particular, you can take advantage of the hiking trails close to our inn, or take part in many other winter activities, like sleigh rides, skiing, and snowshoeing.

The winter snow is always a beautiful sight to behold – what better way to take it in than spending time outside, enjoying nature and healthy activity? We feel that Door County has a rare type of beauty, and love more than anything to show it to others. In particular, it always seems fitting to have visitors with us during New Year’s, so that they can experience the beauty we see every day for the first time.

We wish you and your family a holiday season filled with hope and love – and a Happy New Year!

 

Celebrate Christmas in Door County With Chanticleer

Christmas is just around the corner, and you know what that means – it’s the perfect time to get away and enjoy the holidays with your family in the peace and quiet of Door County. With winter just starting, you can enjoy a time of rest and relaxation in one of our cozy, beautiful suites.

In celebration of the season, the Chanticleer decorates every single room with garlands of fresh plants to give the entire inn a rustic touch. Each fireplace gets its own decoration, and each decoration is unique.

However, we also pay attention to the most important part of decorating for the holidays: the Christmas tree. We choose tall trees that extend to the rafters of each room and festoon them with ornaments of red, silver, and gold to make them look as festive and welcoming as possible.

The Christmas celebrations extend all the way across the county, in fact. From concerts to festivals, Door County will help you celebrate Christmas with your family in style. For example, you can visit the Merry-Time Festival of Trees at the Door County Maritime Museum until December 11th.

The festival is a wonderful way to introduce your family to the delights of the region and to learn more about the Door County Community. You can even take part in a raffle to win your own uniquely decorated Christmas tree to take home with you!

You can also take part in decorating a gingerbread house at other local establishments – what better way to spend time with your family than working together to create something delicious?

Christmas is a time of sharing and togetherness as we buy gifts for each other and appreciate each other’s company. What better way to do that than spend the holiday in comfort with your friends at the Chanticleer Guest House?
