Feet Will Love Our New Carpet!

Eagle Harbor


As the days last longer we know spring is in the wings, however we are not there yet! We have alot of work to do before we are ready to welcome you back! 
We are beginning the very large project of recarpeting all of the Suites which will be completed by the end of March.  We are also completely renovating the bathroom in the small Inn room downstairs with a wonderful soaking whirlpool tub. Actually it is our most requested room, despite it's compact size! Addtiionally we have revamped our signature Granola Recipe and now I can't get enough of it! We are vey excited to see what you think though we need a little more time to finish what we've started~Here's to looking forward to the Summer of 2011!

"Looking for Friends"   

On our new Facebook Page which means we have offically joined the 21st century. It gives us new ways of making friends & keeping them abreast of happenings here at the Inn. We invite you too to join us 

on Facebook & we'll make it fun for you. The latest question to answer is: What date will the ice float out of Eagle Harbor in Ephraim?


For those that join us on Facebook and get the date correct, we will send you a Gift Boxed Set of our Milk & Shea Butter Soap! We don't know when it will float out, so we all wait with baited breath!

With Spring just around the corner, runners & walkers look forward to the special runs that give us a goal & take us to the places we love. 

The DC Half Marathon wants to keep it's intimacy by limiting runners to 1500 & those spots are filling fast. It is run entirely within Peninsula State Park on Saturday, May 7th at 10:00 a.m.


If you're planning to use Eagle Harbor Inn, a proud sponsor of the Door County Marathon, as your

"personal race headquarters", the Door County Trolley

  will be providing transportation to and from the race for your convenience. We also put together a special package for those who want to stay more than just the day.
