With the coming of May, Door County starts to look alive. Shops, restaurants, and motels that went into hibernation for the winter start to blossom open. One of the first big events of the season that we see is the Door County Half Marathon. This year the event will take place on May 5. As always, the beautiful run is in Peninsula State Park. If you don't know this already, Peninsula State Park is right in our backyard. Whether you come to run, to cheer someone on, or just happen to be up that weekend, please come visit us and say hi on our second weekend open for the season. We look forward to our Spaghetti dinner on Friday night. Carbo load before the big race. Stay at our Fish Creek motel Friday night so you are right at the park's door for the race in the morning. Join us for lunch or dinner Saturday night or for breakfast on Sunday on your way out of town.

Winter is very different in Door County than summer. One of the obvious differences to us is that Julie's Park Cafe and Motel is closed. This means that winter is a time to relax and reflect. While we relax and reflect on the previous year, we are also planning for the next. We also take time to enjoy what Door County has to offer in the winter. Soon the trails in Peninsula State Park will be full of snow and open. There you can cross country ski, snow shoe, and explore. Also, many of the shops are still open during the winter. Door County trolley tours continue. A great place to stay is the Open Hearth Lodge. One of our favorite places to eat during the winter is Sister Bay Bowl. We love to go other...

The wind storm on September 29, 2011 did a lot of damage to trees and property across Door County. We were very fortunate that our power was only out for a day and no trees damaged our building. Unfortunately, our Black Locust trees out front were not so lucky. A big branch from one of the trees fell across our road. The wind storm also cracked both of them. We then saw rot in one of them. We were very sad but we had to cut down the beautiful Black Locust trees in front of the restaurant this fall. We had a few professionals look at them and they said the trees could fall at any point on a windy day. I added a photo which shows the rot in the one of the trees. So sadly we had to take them out. We are working on plans for what we are going to do to replace them. We are trying to decide on a type of tree to plant or if we should add flower beds. We have also thought of putting a nice flag pole. Feel free to share any ideas! ...

The 2011 season was a great one for us at the café and motel. Shane and I have now completed two years as owners and three years at Julie’s. This past season was filled with excitement and growth. We have grown as owners and people. This year we have met many great people that have come into the restaurant and motel, and hopefully many of them will not only be customers but also friends. We hope everyone left happy, had a great experience and will return next year for another great Door County experience. Each new day brought challenges and excitement. We had a great staff that made the year even better. Our kitchen staff has been here for years and they continue to make delicious food for our guests. Our front staff had great leaders in Debra (crazy socks), Amy and Jordan. Mario and Lili did a great job taking care of our little motel. We would like to thank our staff for all their help. We would also like to thank our customers for their patronage and hope they return for another great season in 2012!

It’s that time of year again when many doors on the peninsula are closing until spring. Julie’s closed for the season at the end of October. Even though the motel and café are closed, exciting things are going on inside. The 12+ year old carpet and faded laminate flooring have been removed and the new environmentally friendly bamboo and recycled carpet are to be installed soon. The progress is exciting as we look forward to another great season in 2012.

Peninsula State Park in Wisconsin is a destination for many Door County tourists. Julie’s Park Café and Motel is at the doorway to the park in Fish Creek. It is a great stop for breakfast on your way into the park or a meal on your way out. The bike trails begin very close to our restaurant. Feel free to stay parked in our parking lot after your meal so you can save the $money$ on a park sticker. Remember that Peninsula State Park has a lot to offer to visitors including hiking and biking trails, a lookout tower, many beach areas, an outdoor theater and much, much more! Hope to see you in the café on your way into the park!
