You don’t need to save up for your dream home to soak in one of the best sunset views in Door County. Just get away to Westwood Shores Waterfront Resort just north of Sturgeon Bay in Door County, Wisconsin.
The resort is located just a short drive from the bustle of the county’s largest city, but far enough away from it all that you might think you’re days removed. Situated on the shores of Green Bay, each suite offers guests a panoramic view of the setting sun from a private balcony or patio to cap each evening.
And with a recent renovation now complete, guests can experience that view in greater luxury than ever before. Led by designer Katie Harding of Studio DC in Egg Harbor, the work included a complete makeover of its 38 suites, conference rooms, and lobby.
“Guests are raving,” said Denise Stillman, principal of the resort’s management team.
The resort is full of amenities: sauna, fitness room, indoor and outdoor pools, whirlpool, and free Wi-Fi. Come springtime, guests can take advantage of the grill and picnic area, plus on-site paddle and rowboats.
In the season for romance, Westwood Shores is the perfect destination. Third-floor one-bedroom suites feature glorious views, and when the sun goes down you can cozy up by the gas fireplace standard in every room, or rejuvenate in the whirlpool bathtubs found in each bathroom before putting your head to the pillow on a king-sized bed. Take advantage of the full kitchens and dine in with your special someone, or venture a short drive into Sturgeon Bay to sample the burgeoning dining scene on historic 3rd Avenue or on Madison Avenue.
Or is it time for a girlfriends’ getaway? The resort offers two-bedroom suites perfect for groups of friends or couples. Sturgeon Bay’s three distinct shopping districts—featuring artisan boutiques and galleries—are just a five-minute drive from your suite, and cozy coffee shops and cafes await to help replenish your energy.
And for those who love to experience the great outdoors that Door County is famous for, you’ll be just footsteps away from connecting with mother nature. A hike through Bayshore Blufflands Preserve reveals astonishing views, or a run along lightly-trafficked Bayshore Drive takes you past stunning homes and beautiful tree canopies. Or, you can make the short drive to Potawatomi State Park, one of the most underrated parks in Wisconsin.
However you spend your day in Door County, Westwood Shores and its glorious sunset view is the way to end it.
