Just got back from a great weekend with friends... visited the USS Cobia in Manitowoc. Next, came "Trout Days" in Kewaunee (unbeknownst to me, when I planned the excursion). Who knew?! http://www.kewaunee.org/Troutfestival.html We had a front row seat from the front porch at the Kewwaunee Inn (where we stayed) for the fireworks and revelry (which lasted well into the evening!). http://www.kewauneeinn.com/ Sunday... went to the Flying Pig in Algoma http://www.theflyingpig.biz/ (amazing place), the not-to-be-missed Von Stiehl winery in Algoma http://vonstiehl.com/, Red's Rock 'n Shore pub on the lake in Algoma http://www.rocknshorepub.com/index.html ... and then (frown), home. K & G are headed back to their cats in KY, now. Too bad you are so far away! Need to do that stuff more often! Next time? CHEESE! http://www.eatwisconsincheese.com/assets/pdfs/WisconsinCheeseMap.pdf
Bottom line? A great weekend, without driving quite all the way up to the Door County crowds and madness of summer. We had a great time and the inn, under new ownership I hear, was delightful, with huge rooms, lots of character, comfy beds and good quality sheets. Everything was quiet and clean and walking distance to anything you'd want to do in the evening, whether walk down to the harbor, have dinner or drinks in town. The front porch was great for hanging out late into the evening with our friends (whom we don't see often) and again in the morning for coffee and a nice continental breakfast.
My only issue is that, as nice and roomy as they are, the rooms seem somewhat overpriced for the town - Door County prices, yet NOT Door County. Even with the 10% AAA discount, the room with a king bed was $116. I feel that about $100 REGULAR price (pre-discount) might be more in keeping with the location and somewhat quirky (though special!) hotel. But, what do I know?!
