Winter Romance Deals in Door County
Located in Wisconsin’s northeast corner, the Door Peninsula juts out 70 miles into Lake Michigan. With its three hundred miles of shoreline, eleven lighthouses, awe-inspiring natural beauty, and enveloping charm, Door County is often referred to as ‘The Cape Cod’ of the Midwest. With a wide array of unique shops, boutiques, art galleries, museums, and eateries, Door County offers plenty for visitors in addition to enjoying the many outdoor activities.
While Door County is a joy to visit any time of year seeing it dressed in a blanket of snow is a special treat. From early December through the end of March, delightful Door County offers couples a chance to escape into the pampering luxury and scenic beauty of this Midwest winter wonderland with over twenty specially priced romantic packages for two.
Each of these Door County Nature of Romance packages includes two nights’ lodging at one of Door County’s renowned resorts, inns or B&Bs. Choose from among accommodations that include in-room fireplaces, four-poster canopied beds, water views, whirlpool tubs and indoor swimming pools.
Packages, which are value-priced for the winter season on the peninsula, may also include romantic dinners or cozy breakfasts, and distinctive flourishes such as horse-drawn sleigh rides, massages, flowers, champagne or wine, scented candles, hand-dipped chocolates and more. Each package also includes a $25 Door County gift certificate upon check-in.
Once you leave Sturgeon Bay and head out into the open countryside of the Door Peninsula, you escape all traces of cookie-cutter chain stores, fast food restaurants, and box stores behind. You’ll find only unique, independently owned, shops, cafes, art and craft galleries, restaurants and lodging that cater to their visitors no matter the season.
With the hustle and bustle of a busy tourist season behind them, the locals settle into a more relaxed winter pace. A quiet calmness settles over the quaint countryside. The acres and acres of cherry orchards and vineyards are at rest waiting for the warmth of Spring. The busy hiking and biking trails that wind through the many state and local parks, nature preserves, and sanctuaries, are transformed into miles and miles of cross-country ski and snowshoe trails. The quiet, snow-covered trails beckon you to explore their quiet solitude and experience a one-on-one with nature, that leaves you serene and renewed.
You can also enjoy the scenery of this winter wonderland from a cozy horse-drawn sleigh or take a warm and toasty, trolley tour.

For a higher level of excitement, there are about 250 miles of maintained snowmobile trails to keep you busy. And for the die-hard fisherman or woman, you won’t want to miss a chance to wet your line with some ice fishing on the bay. There’s even a sledding hill or two if you want to get out there and rip it up with kids.
