Eagle Harbor Inn is every bit the traditional, inviting Bed and Breakfast inn together with warm, beautifully decorated rooms, all with private baths. And it's a wonderful inn and resort with large one and two bedroom suites in seven separate buildings close to the main house. The suites are equally gorgeous and offer a large whirlpool, 2-way fireplaces, kitchen and many other amenities. So great for snuggling and great for families!

Have Flowers Waiting!

We have assembled a list of florists in the Door County area for your absolute convenience! You should call ahead to make sure they have something you like, in the right price range, and can deliver it on time to the Inn or B & B where you will be staying. So be sure to call ahead — we have not been able to try out each one of these florists! Also, try to select a florist in the same town as you will be staying — makes it a lot easier, though most, we are sure, would not mind delivering to another town! Imagine, you turn the key to your suite or room, and there awaiting your special mate is a beautiful arrangement of flowers — all from you! How thoughtful! How delightful a start to your stay!

Trusted Review

Don’t let the name fool you — this is a first class market to be sure — the best in Door County in our opinion. But Main Street also has a terrific wine selection, from $9 a bottle to $160! They must have close to 1,000 labels to choose from, and in every price range. You will find the perfect bottle of wine here for the in-house dinner you are preparing for your mate, or for your late evening nightcap in front of the fireplace! They also sell very nice wine glasses. In addition, they carry a huge selection of liquor, from the high end to the lower end of the scale, from Belvedere vodka to Smirnoff. And even lots of beer!

Top Shelf Cafe & Gourmet
332 Country Walk Drive

Also a very nice selection of wines, with lots of other really cool goodies here, from bagged pastas, about 25 different kinds of hot sauces, bagged snacky things, cheeses, gourmet items and lots of other stuff you might want to munch with your wine! Definitely worth a stop! Everybody comes to Top Shelf Cafe & Gourmet!

Fine Dining

These are all on the upper end of the eating scale in price and selection. But this is a rather complete list of fine dining establishments in Door County. We have dined at some, and are in the process of writing reviews of others. In general, these are not kid-friendly places, meaning they do not try to attract families. See our Restaurant Reviews for more details.
