Love Farm   (Feature Story)

Love lives can become as blandly routine as morning oatmeal. But sometimes a simple change of scenery (or a few berries) can do wonders. A more elaborate change of scenery to the impeccably kept Chanticleer Guest House can go one further: bringing back the passion between you, your main squeeze and breakfast (maybe even oatmeal). The inn is situated on 70 country acres near Sturgeon Bay. Bed and breakfast-style lodging is available in an idyllic classic farmhouse and a matching converted barn, both built in 1915. Or opt for more seclusion in one of four picturesque pond-side cabins. The Meadows Suite in the guest barn is particularly romantic and well suited to a roll in the hay (it was originally a hay loft). All the cabins have fireplaces (some in the bedrooms) and double whirlpool tubs.

The Chanticleer’s owners are accommodating, but try to remain unobtrusive. They whip up delicious breakfasts each morning and deliver them to your door but otherwise respect your privacy. The property contains a few nature trails and a swimming pool, but the name of the game here is unhindered reconnection with your significant other (or self). Still, there’s plenty to do nearby; this is Door County, after all. 866-682-0384; chanticleerguesthouse.com. (MQ)

A romantic country inn nestled among the orchards of Door County
 
    The Chanticleer Guest House, owned and operated by Darrin Day and Bryon Groeschl, sets on 70 picturesque acres in the heart of Door County.  This bed and breakfast consists of a farm house and barn, both built in 1915.  Day and Groeschl originally renovated the main farm house in October of 1993.  The four suites in the farm house capture the beauty and simplicity of country living, each having their own charm and character.  Then, after three years of welcoming guests to The Chanticleer Guest House, they renovated the barn and opened four more suites in February of 1997.  Having more of a rustic flare, the suites in the barn evoke a feeling of times long gone.  Wide plank floors, exposed beams and vaulted ceilings make a weekend in the barn a very unique experience. 
    Day and Groeschl recently purchased 40 acres, directly adjacent to the 30 acres they originally owned.  They extended the walking trails onto this property, dug an acre pond and are in the process of building two luxury cabins in June of 2000......
 
........... The Chanticleer provides a hint of the past, an unforgettable stay and future delights that will bring you back...time after time.

The genteel country-style lodgings make travelers to The Chanticleer Guest House feel a bit like noblemen come to their rustic farmstead manor - complete with a flock of sheep to watch over.  Its 70 rural acres offer hiking trails, wildlife, a swimming pool and lovely, bursting flower gardens.  Add in gracious hosts with an eye for decor and antiques, always cozy guest rooms, plus the usual little bed-and-breakfast luxuries, and you've got a place Cupid would snuggle up in for the weekend.  There are eight spacious suites in the 1915 house and converted barn, plus two new cabins in the woods.  Our favorite: The Meadows Suite, formerly the barn's hayloft, with timber-framed ceiling and iron bale hooks still intact.

Two Wisconsin natives turn a Sturgeon Bay farm property into a country comfort zone
 
Bryon Groeschl and Darrin Day aren't the types to crow about their own work, but the two men are justifiably proud of a bed and breakfast business they call Chanticleer.
The Chanticleer Guest House, a complex of eight suites set in a renovated 1915 farmhouse and former sheep barn, sit on 30 acres at 4072 Cherry Road.  Two new cabins on another 40 acres will be this year's addition...

Wisconsin's Welcoming Door.

...We checked into the Chanticleer Guest House, a lovely bed and breakfast tucked well off the main road north of Sturgeon Bay, the largest town in Door County.  The Chanticleer, run by Darrin Day and Bryon Groeschl, opened in 1993 in a converted farmhouse and barn.  Fields of wild-flowers swirl over its 30-acre spread, sheep graze in the pastures, a gazebo is perched on the lawn, a heated pool is next to the farm-house, and hiking trails begin on the grounds and meander into the woods.
    The rooms are capacious, airy and bright.  Each one has a double whirlpool, a fireplace, a private balcony, air-conditioning, television, VCR, and stereo with a cassette and CD player.  There is no telephone, but there is a jack if you just can't resist  plugging in your laptop and checking your e-mail.....
   
.....After enjoying the night air, we returned to the Chanticleer, where each room is cheerfully decorated in a different theme.  The first two nights we stayed in the Sunflower Suite, which had little touches like a sunflower candle and sunflower tissue boxes.  The third night we stayed in the Grand Suite, with knotted wood paneling and an old piano against one wall.  Throughout the inn, the decor was tasteful rather than cutesy.
    Breakfast is brought to your room at the time you designate.  Our first morning, we got a pot of hazelnut coffee, a pitcher of fresh orange juice and a basket full of muffins (made with Door County cherries, of course) and a cold strawberry soup topped with whipped cream.....

A drive Unlocks Door County, Wisconsin

.....The best starting point is the Chanticleer Guest House on Sturgeon Bay's rural Cherry Road.  Wisconsin natives Bryon Groeschl and Darrin Day have transformed a farm house and a big red barn into a 10-suite inn.  From my favorite room, under the barn rafters, I watched sheep roam the grounds (you can order a hand-knit sweater made from their wool)...
