Chanticleer Guest House – Gay Sturgeon Bay Bed and Breakfast

Author: , November 15th, 2018

Chanticleer Guest House - Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin

Comprised of a gorgeous farm house and barn, both originally built in 1915, The Chanticleer Guest House is truly one of Door County’s most unique bed and breakfasts.

We are located on thirty private acres, just 1/2 mile north of Sturgeon Bay. The guest house and guest barn have been carefully renovated to capture the beauty of each structure, while providing the modern conveniences you should expect in a fine country bed and breakfast.

If a secluded cabin is more your idea of a romantic retreat, The Chanticleer Cabins were built just for you! Our four luxury cabins are located on forty private, wooded acres a few minutes walk from the guest house. Each cabin overlooks a private, 1/2 acre pond, which is a magnet for deer, turkey and other wildlife.

Fantastic Bayfield Wisconsin North Woods bed and breakfast. Consistently high ratings by guests and one of the top ranked Bayfield bed and breakfasts on TripAdvisor.

Located on 3.5 acres with soaring pine trees and amazing gardens, just one block from Lake Superior, Pinehurst Inn provides a tranquil environment from which to enjoy all that the North Woods of Wisconsin and the Bayfield area have to offer.

We are open year-round so you can experience the four uniquely beautiful seasons of the North Woods. From boat tours and ferry rides to kayaking the Apostle Islands’ sea caves, the summer and fall are full of big water adventures. Winter brings snow shoeing, cross-country skiing, local downhill skiing and tubing, and so much more fun with the fluffy white stuff.

And if the weather cooperates and it is sufficiently cold, there may be an opportunity to experience the awe-inspiring ice caves and the ice road to Madeline Island. There also are many beautiful trails and waterfalls in the area to be enjoyed all year.

Make Pinehurst Inn your headquarters for exploring Lake Superior and the Bayfield area. Guest rooms are available in both the main house, built in 1885 and full of old world charm, and the garden house, built in 2003 with more modern eco-friendly features. Each room is unique so you can find the one that is right for you. Rooms with jetted tubs, fireplaces and decks are available and each room has either a king or queen bed.

A hearty three course breakfast is served each morning to prepare you for your day of adventure. Soft drinks and a Kuerig machine for coffee, tea and hot chocolate are available in the common area of both houses for guests’ enjoyment throughout the day. We look forward to having you stay with us!

Reynolds House Bed and Breakfast – Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin

Reynolds House Bed and Breakfast

Periodically we’ll feature one of our properties here to let our readers know about some great gay friendly places to stay:

The Reynolds House is a small quaint European-style bed and breakfast that offers all the amenities the American traveller desires.

We have five tastefully appointed bedrooms all with queen beds and ensuite bathrooms:

  • The Dragonfly Suite is on the first floor, is dog friendly and has its own private entrance.
  • There are three rooms on the second floor with their differences being in the bathrooms – one has a huge 115 year old claw foot and separate walk-in shower, one has a jacuzzi tub, and the third has just a walk-in shower.
  • The fifth room (Milky Way Suite)is on the third floor and consists of three rooms (the servants occupied these rooms until 1906 when the Reynolds Family had the adjacent house built just for the servants).

Breakfasts are served in the Victorian style – at a specified time with only one seating, and at a large banquet table in the oak paneled dining room or on the front porch. Breakfasts have become a “Great Gathering” for creating new memories, sharing experiences and learning about our neighbors from down the road and across the world.

The Reynolds Family was the first family in Door County to grow, harvest and market the Montemorency cherries, now the premier cherry of Door County.

The interior of the home reflects a forward thinking family, depicted in the Oak paneling, oak fireplaces and maple floors. The craftsmanship in the woodwork, ceramic tiles and limestone columns all predate the Arts and Crafts Movement, suggesting the family was ahead of their time when it came to 1900 residential architecture.

The home exudes warmth and comfort in every corner, whether it be on the front porch with its over-sized swing and wicker furniture, or in the circular sunroom with its ever blooming flowers and plants, or the peacefulness found in a good book from the reading nook/library.

Milwaukee Celebrates Gay Pride in June

Author: , May 8th, 2014

Pridefest Milwaukee 2014

We are the nations largest LGBT festival with permanent festival grounds, owned and operated entirely by volunteers each and every year. PrideFest Milwaukee does not have one paid employee, simply the dedication and devotion to bring together a festival each and every year for our community.

However, Milwaukee’s LGBT celebrations go all the way back to 1974, when 350 people attended the Gay People’s Union Ball. Other dances and parties followed in the years to come, but it wasn’t until 1988 that the first official events were hosted by the Milwaukee Lesbian/Gay Pride Committee. Several hundred people participated in the week-long celebration, which included a softball tournament at Mitchell Park, picnic, formal ball, and film festival.

Edge Boston Names Their Top Lesbian Travel Destinations for 2014

Author: , January 7th, 2014

Gay TravelFrom flannel-fabulous Halifax to an epic 21-day adventure throughout New Zealand and Austrialia, EDGE gives a shout out to the ultimate lesbian travel experiences for 2014.

Halifax, Nova Scotia

It’s cold. It’s far away. There can’t be much queer stuff going on there. Oh, such preconceived notions of charming Halifax, Canada’s hidden gem. Nova Scotia’s humble capital city, just east of Maine, is not so distant. It has four distinct seasons, though yes, the chill vibe exists year-round. Plus it’s so down-and-dirty gay, Halifax could be called the New Orleans of the north.

Stay: The Lord Nelson is Halifax’s most historic hotel. Built in 1928, it’s perfectly located in the heart of town across from the idyllic Public Gardens; walking distance from the city’s lively waterfront; and a cab ride from the up and coming North End neighborhood.

Eat: Brooklyn Warehouse has served some of Halifax’s best food and drinks since it opened in 2007. It focuses on the obvious ingredients – local, seasonal and seafood – with inventiveness worthy of its namesake New York borough.
