Door County vacationers crave both the new and the familiar at the same time. Those of us that strive to meet the needs of our returing guests work hard to ensure consistency in their stay – our guests love to see our familiar faces, and the familiar cozy feel that Open Hearth Lodge provides. We put extra effort into ensuring that our new, dog-friendly addition closely matches the existing look and feel of the Lodge, but with a new twist geared towards guests travelling with their dogs.
However, vacationers are always interested in the new establishments and activities available to them. It’s exciting to add a new tradition to your annual family vacation, or to try something new when you’re enjoying some time away from the grind. Below, you’ll find some articles that showcase everything that is new to Door County in 2021. Try something new this year, and then relax back at your familiar home away from home.
