If you’ve ever been to Bay Shore Inn during the summer months, you know how beautiful our view is and how truly unique and relaxing our vibe is. But what you might not know is that view is beautiful all year round, and the cooler temps change our vibe to cozy and quiet time quaint in Sturgeon Bay. A Bay Shore Inn visit in Fall has all the things you love about visiting us during the summer, but with a different vibe we think you’ll love just as much.
Cozy Bay Shore Inn Suites
We all love the beautiful balconies in our Bay Shore Inn suites and those offer the same beautiful views all year round…the trees just might be more colorful, or the bay might be frozen. Grab a cup of Door County Coffee from the full kitchen in your suite and enjoy the view – if it’s not too cold out a couple minutes on the chilly balcony enjoying the view can be a perfect way to wake up! Another cozy part of every Bay Shore Inn suite that you might not use in the summer is the fireplace. Nothing beats curling up on the couch in front of a fireplace on a chilly evening.
Quiet Time Quaint Stops in Sturgeon Bay
Sturgeon Bay and many of its businesses stay open year-round, which is a unique feature from many of the other Door County communities. During your quiet time visit, we suggest heading to Lawlss Coffee. They have plenty of cozy spots to enjoy their scrumptious seasonal drinks that are always changing! If you’re looking for a full breakfast head to Scaturo’s where everything on the menu is good, but during the Fall their pumpkin pancakes are a MUST!
For a good hearty lunch to warm you up after a day of exploring in Sturgeon Bay, head to the Gnoshery. Their soups and hot sandwiches pair great with a rousing round of your favorite board or card game! For dinner, you have to try Cedar Crossing. They serve hearty meals inspired by Door County that made from scratch with as many local ingredients as possible.
For a little quiet time shopping head to Madison Avenue Market for some wine, beer, artisan olive oil and unique gifts. Looking to find your new favorite sweater or comfy shoes? Check out Wilkins & Olander for their ever-changing assortment of women’s apparel, footwear and accessories.
What better way to enjoy a quiet and cozy trip to Bay Shore Inn than to curl up in front of the fireplace with a new book! Novel Bay Booksellers is an independent bookstore located right in downtown Sturgeon Bay where you’re sure to find your next good read. And if you’re up for a scenic ride up the peninsula, head to Door County Nature Works in Egg Harbor. They have a unique selection of seasonal home décor and gifts that are perfect for gifts or decorating your own cozy oasis.
