Known as “The Cape Cod of the Midwest,” Wisconsin’s Door County bustles with activity during the summer season. Five state parks, seemingly endless aquatic adventures, and 12 historic lighthouses help explain why the summer population booms from 28,000 to around 250,000. What most people don’t know, however, is that this unique region offers just as much fun during the fall and winter months as during the peak season.
The prime example of year-round Door County fun is Pheasant Park Resort. Packages and activities unique to all four seasons abound at this Sister Bay stay. Far enough removed to be serene and peaceful, yet surprisingly close to the vibrant downtown area, this resort features a diverse array of adventures. Stop by any time of the year and you’re sure to find fun.
Just two blocks from downtown Sister Bay, excitement is just a hop, skip, and jump away. Enticing restaurants, sensational shopping, and fun-filled parks await just a stone’s throw away. When the summer sun is shining, head to a variety of beaches and enjoy an array of aquatic adventures like swimming, fishing, and boating. If you’d prefer to stay dry, swing away on the many surrounding golf courses, zip around on go-carts, or check out an exciting festival.
“Pheasant Park Resort is a hidden gem in Sister Bay,” General Manager Amanda Bass said. “We are located in a wooded area in the heart of downtown, so we are within walking distance of shops, restaurants, parks, and the beach.”
The activities are just as hot during the cooler months. Autumn ushers in fall foliage tours, winery visits, apple picking, and art gallery browsing. Once the winter wonderland arrives, snowmobile the white-washed trails, coast along on a pair of ice skates, cross country ski the exceptionally groomed trails, trek along on snowshoes, or take in the scenery on a sleigh ride. Since the winter isn’t as crowded, it provides the perfect time for couples to get some quiet time. Every season provides something unique.
“Our facility is across the street from the City Sports Complex, which is open to the public,” Bass said. “It has a baseball field, tennis courts, a basketball court, and a soccer field. It offers baseball games during the spring and summer for our guests to watch from their patios, as well as an ice rink for skating, hockey, and broomball during the winter months.”
No matter what the time of year, the exceptional accommodations are always in season. Spacious suites feature cable television, fireplaces, and private patios. Unwind in the Whirlpool, take a dip in the sparkling swimming pool, or drift away in the sauna. Additionally, packages like the Romantic Dinner Getaway, the Winter Wonderland Special, and the Spring Break Savings Special allow you to customize your vacation.
As one of the few stays that offers 12 months of Door County entertainment, Pheasant Park Resort is your year-round vacation destination.
