AS WE BEGIN THE OFFICIAL 'TOURIST SEASON'

COFFEE HOUSE BUZZ:

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. 


FISH CREEK CHATTER:

The marigolds have been planted that line Main Street !!  Year after year, travelers look forward to the colors that are reminiscent of years past.  Fish Creek is hopping with shoppers, and those anxious to dine at the favorite establishments, as well as those just taking a stroll in this quaint harbor town.

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!!






FISH CREEK CHATTER:


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!




Don't delay in making your plans to visit us here in the nucleus of Door County, Fish Creek, WI.

SPRING IS IN THE AIR!

COFFEE HOUSE BUZZ:

Once again, the Homestead Suites is keeping up with the demands of a premier resort/hotel in Fish Creek, WI!  Tile has been replaced, spring cleaning has begun, bathroom remodeling is underway in some of our suites.  Guests are excited to plan and book their vacations for 2016. 


One by one, the snowbirds are making their way north.  Some of the locals are taking a last-minute trip south of the border before the tourist season is in full swing.


As far as our sportsmen are concerned, Spring fishermen are dropping a line here and there; Turkey hunters are awaiting their 'weeks' coming up.   Bicycles are being tuned up and hikers are dusting off their boots!

THE SNOW HAS COME; 2015 IS GONE

 

COFFEE HOUSE BUZZ:

Homestead Suites finally has snow on the outdoor Christmas trees.  With the approx. 10" that fell overnight, snow shoe and ski enthusiasts are flocking to the Door Peninsula! With The Homestead at the entrance to the State Park, guests are taking advantage of the new fallen snow.  With the holiday behind us, all those new Christmas gifts are being put to good use.  Ski, tube, snowshoe rentals are right across the street, and the ice fisherman are patiently waiting the deep freeze.

Town decorations are reflecting the glistening snow.  Sidewalks are cleared, and the town is a magnet for guests cleaning up on those end-of-the-year sales, as well as watching their favorite sports team at the Bayside.   Winter weather has begun.
