What to Expect this Summer at the Chanticleer Guest House

Owners of the Chanticleer Guest House - Door County B&B

Summer is always an exciting season here at the Chanticleer. Not only do we get to meet and greet many new visitors, but we also look forward to seeing old friends returning for a chance to rest, relax, and enjoy the beauty of Door County.

There are so many festivals and events to take part in here over the summer months that sometimes we lose count! For example, the cherry harvest is in full swing during the middle of July. Why not visit the many farmers’ markets across the region and sample fresh cherries, cherry jam, and fresh-baked cherry pie? There are several markets to choose from, including the Sister Bay and Sturgeon Bay markets that open up on Saturdays from June to October. During your trip, don’t forget to sample some wine, or some of Wisconsin’s renowned cheeses. There’s also the all-you-can-eat Belgian waffle breakfast happening in Brussels on June 23rd if you like heartier fare.

Delicious food isn’t the only reason to visit Door County in the summer, though. There’s also the natural beauty of our waters, trails, and parks. For example, if you love hiking, then you’ll love taking part in National Trails Day on June 1st or the State Park Open House Day on June 2nd. If you’d like to learn more about our local heritage, you can also attend the Door County Lighthouse Festival, which runs from June 7th to July 9th.

On top of that, there are plenty of opportunities to celebrate the arts, like the Birch Creek Concert Series in Egg Harbor. If you’re looking to see live performances of The Bard, Door County has those too – Door Shakespeare is running productions of both Macbeth and Love’s Labour’s Lost throughout July and August at the lovely Bjorklunden estate near Baileys Harbor.

These events don’t even scratch the surface of all the variety that’s available to enjoy in Door County over the summer. The best way to find out all we have to offer is to visit yourselves – we at the Chanticleer Guest House guarantee that we’ll provide everything you need to enjoy your stay in beauty and comfort.
