The holidays arrive at a time when Door County has slowed down, and the hustle of the busy season is put on hold for another winter. This makes for a great time to take stock of the blessings we’ve received this year.
Our loyal guests and new friends delivered another successful season for Open Hearth Lodge, and allowed us to grow with the construction of our new, dog-friendly expansion. Our family and employees have remained healthy and happy and our Door County residents and independent businesses have continued to thrive while keeping Door County a special place that travel-starved visitors are able to enjoy.
For these reasons and many more, we give thanks and encourage you to consider your blessings as well.
Combating Cold Weather
No one knows how to weather cold weather better than Door County residents, so we decided to provide some of our tried and true tactics for warming yourself during the cold season. The only catch here is that these items require you to visit Door County, but we think it is one of the coziest places you can be in winter.
The cold weather and the holidays bring plenty of warming meals, but soup is often overlooked despite its quick body-warming nature. You’ll find great soups at many establishments in Door County, here are just a few:
