Here you are, Kris! The list of places I’d recommend:
Somerset Inn and Suites – Straightforward hotel room. Nice! Just north of Ephraim.
Where we stayed this time: Ephraim Guest House – Nice suite with living room/kitchen/bedroom. I think they have two-bedroom suites, too (would be nice for a family). There was a little bookcase stocked with classics, including Patrick O’Brien books. I’m just sayin’ – I coulda stayed there for quite some time quite happily. Located in Ephraim, about two blocks from the water.
Summertime – located in Fish Creek. Get the ribs. Not necessarily recommending anything else.
Old Post Office – Ephraim. Great place for breakfast. Plain ol’ good breakfast food. Right across from the water. Always makes me feel like I’m on vacation.
Inn at Cedar Creek – popular place you hear about in Sturgeon Bay. We stopped there for our last meal on the way home. I don’t think we’ll go back. (Sorry)
Trattoria dal Santo – get the walleye. Yum-o. Located in Sturgeon Bay.
Sweetie Pies – Sells full pies or pie by the slice.
Wild Tomato Pizza – we stopped there and had to wait for a while to get in, but it was worth it. We had fried cheese curds and a sausage and mushroom pizza. I’m not going to say it was the best pizza ever but it definitely hit the spot on a chilly afternoon. We also spent a lot of time wondering if we were eating two tables away from the Bodeans. Yep. Fur realz.
We’ve also eaten at The Cookery (which I remember loving), and The Bistro at Liberty Square in Egg Harbor.
My favorite is Maxwell’s House in Egg Harbor.
JC (my friend) found two great bead shops: The Perfect Bead and oh dear…I forget. Another bead place. She’s into that stuff. This is what the guys did while she shopped:
I’ve gone to The Rusty Rabbit before and liked it.
Firetower and lighthouse in Peninsula State ParkI have to include this photo – just have to. This is me and 1/3 on top of the firetower. Take note of the beautiful coats. That’s all I’m gonna say. Just admire.
Cana Island Lighthouse
Ferry Ride to Washington Island and then on to Rock Island – very fun
