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!

With the Memorial Day Weekend in progress, so many return guests along with some new faces have made the Homestead Suites their hotel of choice.  Weather has cooperated for the most part, and the last of the Spring blossoms have been viewed by all.  Hikers, bicyclists, and bird watchers have taken advantage of our great location at the entrance to Peninsula State Park.

APRIL SHOWERS BRING MAY FLOWERS.....

COFFEE HOUSE BUZZ:

Homestead Suites is ready for another fun-filled tourist season in Door County! Last weekend celebrated Mother's Day along with the Door County Half Marathon and Nicolet 5K in Peninsula State Park.  Guests who competed (walking or running) returned to the hotel - each with their own comments and story to tell.  Some were refreshed, others....not so much.  Chuck was looking for a good massage!!

Town is opening for the "Season".  Some restaurants and businesses are open full-time, while others are open just on weekends until Memorial Day Weekend.  The new construction at Julie's (next door) is almost complete, and the blossoms are budding!
