Note: for those calling about the June 21st weekend, there are openings because of a reunion cancellation.
"I was the one who discovered you!" "This is just what I imagined when I thought of a place to stay in Door County", "like an iceberg--so many surprises", "it is so clean" and "the central location was wonderful for our family reunion" are a few recent comments by guests at check out. This small family owned resort is in an ideal location, between the two favorite Door County villages of Fish Creek and Ephraim.
A Peninsula Park-View is between the outdoor movie theater and golf course and near mountain biking and hiking trails. Guests simply walk or bike across the road into the middle entrance of one of the most beautiful State Parks in the Midwest. There is no fee at this entrance for hikers and bicyclists. A Peninsula Park-View is a wood and a nine
iron from the golf course entrance and it is much easier to drive in and
out of the park there than at the congested Fish Creek entrance. For those interested, the owners are naturalists with training in recreation. In between remodeling and restoring the resort, they enjoy sharing information and history about the unique lands in Door County.
It is a short drive to the theaters, world famous galleries,
free concerts, dining, shopping and historical experiences Fish Creek and Ephraim have to offer. Guests love to use their Blue Horse Beach cafe discount
to try the famous bacon cheesy biscuits and unique sandwiches,
chocolates and treats made on site, scones and organic coffees and teas.
They enjoy showing us the photo art from 2 for U in Fish Creek that
they bought with their Park-View discount.
A Peninsula Park-View is the lodging closest to most of the Park's other amenities, such as the large sandy Nicolet Beach and boat rentals, the amazing nature learning center where chickadees eat right out of your hand, light house and bat preserve. Guest enjoy boat rentals, American Folklore Theater and easy access to campgrounds where friends and relatives sometimes stay. It is near mountain bike trails, cross country ski, snowshoe and snowmobile trails.
There are reasonably priced units at A Peninsula Park-View : 9 rooms, 3 favorite suites and a 2, 3 or 5 bedroom remodeled cottage. All are very clean and individually featured. The owners work hard to offer a Travel Green stay with old fashioned enjoyment and many amenities such as, free bicycles to use in Peninsula Park, a large outdoor heated pool, free WiFi in each room and complimentary organic coffee in the morning. There are outdoor grills, a fire pit and a gathering room with ping pong and games.
Each unit at A Peninsula Park-View has a microwave and refrigerator or a
kitchenette or a full kitchen and large windows for cross ventilation. Guests park near their door and there is seating outside on porches or decks near their unit. A dog is allowed in only one of the queen rooms to accommodate groups and reunions. All other units are pet and smoke free, but smoking is allowed on site and far enough away from buildings so smoke does not go into the units.
The romantic Anniversary Suite and Garden King were saved by moving a 1939 home, destined for destruction, up the hill from from Ephraim. It took 4 years to restore the Anniversary Suite. People are enchanted by the beams and large stone fireplace while they relax in the private whirlpool. The one criticism is that we do not charge enough. The Garden King has also become a favorite with more windows than walls. In August of 2013 one guest told us (as they added 3 nights to their 6 night stay) that it was one of the nicest rooms they stayed in and they said they travel a lot.
The outdoor movie theater is a block away. It is less than a mile from the Beach and boat rentals in Ephraim and to the airport and plane rides. Sorry, we cannot provide rides from the airport, but there are car rentals and bicycles available there. A Peninsula Park-View is less than a mile to Eagle Harbor in Ephraim with boat rentals and beach, about 2 miles from the YMCA, Peninsula Art School and Door Community Auditorium and one to five miles from many favorite restaurants.
Stay with us and we will share our secrets for exploring Door County, based on what you enjoy, such as silent sports, park and natural areas, recreational activities, galleries, theaters, restaurants and shopping.
