Inn at Kristofers New Owners get Rave Reviews
by Carol Thompson for the Pulse
Mark Antczak and his wife Catherinei@k have purchased the Inn at Kristofer's in Sister Bay. While it will be tough for him to follow former owners Terri and Chris Milligan, everyone seems to agree he's up to the challenge. I spoke with the Milligans and server Kevin Free about Antczak, and they gave him a high rating. He's not new to the game or anything like that. "He has a lot of experience, so he's bringing that experience with him and that experience helps," Free said.
"The new owners of Kristofer's, Mark and Catherine Antczax, are great examples of a couple who were able to fulfill a dream of having  a business of their own in Door County," Chris said. "Mark has restaurant experience to continue the traditions the Inn at Kristofer's has created through the years and will be retaining the name the Inn at Kristofer's as well as the staff, including our head Chef Eric Thomas.
Mark is a capable man and I am sure he will do great things with the restaurant," Terri said.  

Winter In Door County  


 Early yesterday morning I was 

on my way to work. It was just after a couple days of beautiful snowfall. The sky was overcast, brightening as the morning progressed.  The trees were dressed with tufts of snow everywhere as if someone intentionally decorated the entire County by hand. Those who were brave enough to navigate the snow covered streets were in for a treat. So, as I made my way to the Inn I was thinking about how  for the minutes it took me to get to work, I was one of the few that got to see a perfect  winter morning. In fact,  I would be hard pressed to find a summer day to compare to it, a full color sunny fall day, maybe. It was gorgeous. It is a morning like this that if captured by camera, promotes Door County without any words: It truly is a magical place. And there won't be too many more  weekends before things start to warm up and melt. 

So many folks are surprised that there is life in Door County in the winter.  I can't fully explain my love for this time of the year up here. You just have to experience it for yourself. There are very good places to eat and tour throughout the area. And great shops, most have big sales throughout the winter.(Just ask us) We would be happy to direct you to that which we find best about the County. Or, one could just let down & rejuvenate. Apart from all the outdoor stuff, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, sledding, and ice skating, one may just want to curl up with a book in front of the fire or soakin a warm bath with bath salts; or there is always room for writing or talking with your soulmate. Let us plan a weekend for you!  contact us 


Dates While it is still winter, we get away with eating a little more Nueske Bacon, our family's favorite! Our friend Dale, and inveterate experimenter with food, made these for us on a recent visit in February and boy are they easy & good! I want to share them with you!

Nueske Bacon, raw, cut slice into 1/3rds
12 Whole pitted Dates
1/2 lb. Gorgonzola Cheese 

Preheat oven to 450*. Wth a sharp knife, make a slit on one side of the date. Chunk off Gorgonzola Cheese slightly smaller than the opening, and stuff date with cheese. Wrap raw bacon around date & secure with small toothpick. (We didn't plan ahead & used wooden matchsticks which worked wonderfully!)  Bake until bacon is done, about 12-15 minutes. 
Make as many as you need as appetizers ~ enjoy!
We are excited to welcome you back for your annual Door County foray, and we are making improvements to make your stay more comfortable! This week we begin installing flat screen tvs in all the suites, as the Inn rooms have them already. If you have little ones, we are replacing the playground with a shiny new one! And for those who love to exercise, and eat, our Fitness Room & Inn kitchen will be sporting new floors. We are also excited for you to meet Maria Jacobs who hails from Brazil, replacing Lynn. Maria is a very warm, compelling person who you will love to meet. We'll be here to welcome you back with a traditional Door County hug!
