Guide to Door County
Every summer we take a trip to Door County. It’s a great place that is close enough (under 3 hours from Milwaukee) to getaway and enjoy a few days with your significant other, family or friends. Whenever we leave, we can’t wait to come back. It never disappoints.
There are 8 wineries in Door County, check them all out below (hours vary by season):
- Lautenbach’s Orchard Country
- Door 44 Winery
- Harbor Ridge Winery
- Door Peninsula Winery
- Red Oak Winery
- Von Stiehl Vineyard
- Stone’s Throw Winery
- Simon Creek Winery
Restaurant/Brewery recommendations in Door County:
- Chop (delicious seafood, we always eat here at least once)
- Wild Tomato (amazing pizza)
- Sister Bay Bowl (delicious fish, we all had the perch)
- Peach Barn Brewery (loved the atmosphere and outdoor area)
- White Gull Inn
- Kitty O’Reilly’s Irish Pub
We always stay in Sister Bay at Birchwood Lodge. It’s a great location, plus you can walk to quite a few restaurants, outdoor dining options, and the beach. The rooms are very nice and have plenty of room. Our room had an outdoor seating area with a few chairs, we drank our coffee outside in the morning and enjoyed the peace and quiet. They also have an indoor and outdoor pool for guests. While we were there this year we also stopped and toured the new Dorr Hotel. It was amazing. Booked for the season, but we are definitely looking into it next year. The outdoor area is so fun — including a bar, fire pit and ping pong.
We hope this guide helps on your next trip to Door County! Enjoy exploring this hidden gem, friends.
