HALF WAY THROUGH OCTOBER

COFFEE HOUSE BUZZ:

The annual Sister Bay Fall Fest weekend is coming to an end.  Visitors from near and far came to celebrate the season in style!  A great number of our return guests took advantage of the chance to watch the parade, grab a bite and stroll through the arts and crafts exhibits.  For most, the Homestead Suites is their 'home away from home'.  Sunday's very warm weather was welcomed by all  as the early morning fog lifted.




FISH CREEK CHATTER:

Next weekend the Door County Fall 50 takes place, with those participating who appreciate the beautiful Autumn landscape that the County has to offer.

The final "Hurrah" of October is JACK O'LANTERN DAYS in Fish Creek for all who want to acknowledge the Halloween weekend.  Costume party, parade and trick or treating for the kids.

AUTUMN LEAVES ARE FALLING....

COFFEE HOUSE BUZZ:

Pumpkin Patch Weekend is underway!  The whole peninsula enjoys celebrating the Fall Color, arts & crafts, grabbing a brat and that last ear of roasted corn for the year.  The Homestead boasts its colorful Autumn display, and guests take their selfies next to our cornstalks!






The Homestead staff is keeping up with the near-capacity number of guests during these popular weeks in October.  How wonderful it is to visit with our many return guests, who do their annual pilgrimage to appreciate the Door County Fall Season.






The local archery hunters are waiting to bag the big one, and the snowbirds are planning their escape to warmer climates.

Winding Down and Gearing Up...

COFFEE HOUSE BUZZ:

As Autumn approaches, we reflect on a super Summer Season, and look forward to a busy Fall.  Many of our long time guests are returning for that last bicycle ride of the year in Peninsula State Park, taking that hike at the Ridges Sanctuary, or just getting that last shopping trip in before the fair weather ends.


The Homestead staff is keeping up with the demands of providing excellent guest service. While we meet and greet our new guests, we are catching up on the happenings in the lives of our return guests.  What a pleasure to see all our friends enjoying themselves as they each come to the Homestead Suites for their own unique reasons!


FISH CREEK CHATTER:

The town has not slowed down a bit, and the marigolds are still lining the streets.  Each weekend seems to attract many different visitors. Fish Creek has the big INSIDE/OUTSIDE SALE this coming weekend.  Eagle Tower in the State Park has been dismantled.  Trolleys are touring, wineries are doing tasting, apple orchards are there for the picking.
 


Don't miss the chance to visit Fish Creek before the snow flies!
