Julie's Park Cafe & Motel (Motel)

4020 Hwy 42, Fish Creek, WI,

Julie’s Motel seems to have it all going on: a great location just next door to Peninsula State Park’s Fish Creek entrance, a café serving breakfast, lunch and dinner (and featuring a kids’ menu) on the premises. And within walking distance are Fish Creek shops including Founders Square area to the south and Top of the Hill shopping center to the north.

Near it all
We can’t say enough about Julie’s Motel’s superb location. Guest will enjoy the greenspace surrounding the building and the convenience of being near Peninsula State Park, which offers abundant hiking and biking trails as well as golfing, a historic lighthouse and lookout tower, theatre performances and more. You can rent bikes nearby, too.

And when you want to try different places to eat, walk to a variety of restaurants including Gibraltar Grill, Not Licked Yet and Blue Horse Bistro—all in Fish Creek.

Julie’s Motel is also near Fish Creek Beach, which offers access to Green Bay water sports and is often the site for town events.

But if you want to just sit around, try sitting in the big purple chair at Julie’s Motel. E-mail Julie’s Motel staff a photo of yourself sitting in the chair, and they will consider it for their online gallery (one winner a month is featured).

This is a popular place, and we are delighted to include Julie’s Park Café & Motel on  Check Availability now!  When you make a reservation, let them know sent you there.
