Spring is here, and that means so many things in Door County. The weather is getting warmer and the grass is getting greener. One of the loveliest things about spring, though, is the fact that you’ll get to see lots of baby animals romping around with their mothers on all of the farms.
What better way to celebrate the new season than to see so much new life around you? We here at the Chanticleer have been getting ready to welcome those who want to experience what it’s like to see Door County in full bloom. In particular, we’d love our visitors to visit the welcome this year’s lambs.
Yes! We have sheep at the Chanticleer Guest House! Our lambing season starts on April 10th, just in time for the flowers to bloom. If you stay with us during the spring, you’ll not only get to see Door County at its springtime best, but you’ll also get to experience the pleasures of petting a beautiful young lamb’s wool.
During your stay, there are many other festivals and events you can attend to welcome the return of spring. For example, there’s the Festival of Blossoms, which is celebrated across the entire county from mid-April until June. You can tour our region from one end to the other and take in all of the gardens, woods, and orchards in full bloom.
If you’re up for a guided tour, there’s also the Spring Trolley Blossom Tour, which happens every Saturday morning in April and May, as well as a daily series of Segway eco-tours. During your trip, you’ll have the chance to see all of Door County’s beauty, from cherry orchards to lighthouses to the lakeside bluffs. If you prefer the water, we recommend attending the Sturgeon Bay Shipyard Tours on May 5th.
Whatever you decide to see, you’ll be guaranteed a pleasurable, relaxing stay at the Chanticleer Guest House. Our private cabins will provide you with the perfect setting to rest and rejuvenate after a busy day of farms, flowers, and local color. We look forward to welcoming you this spring!
