Hello!  It’s been ages since we last posted.  Spring is finally here and we are back in Gills Rock, Door County!  So happy to be back.  It’s absolutely beautiful up here.  So quiet and peaceful watching the sunlight glint off the waves.

The boats are coming back, which is always a welcome sight.  New this year, but one many of you will remember, is the Shoreline boat that Captain Jim Robinson ran so many lighthouse boat tours out of.  The boat is now owned by FOPPI – Friends of Plum and Pilot Islands, which is a nonprofit group dedicated to maintain and improve the Plum and Pilot Island lighthouses and buildings.  You’ll be able to charter a boat trip right from our Marina!  Friends of Plum and Pilot Islands | Lighthouse Boat & History Tours, Washington Island

Evy’s Craft Shop is open again this year.  She has a lot of new hand-crafted products, and also new vendors whose offerings include homemade jewelry, bath bombs, and lotions.  Evy has also expanded her Diamond Dot assortment, which are very popular.  Come check out the new offerings!

As for the Motel (our quaint Shoreline Resort), we have some updates to share.  Due to popular demand, we have converted another room into a King Bed with Dual Reclining Sofa. We also finally have some new chairs out on the deck this year and are also planning on adding a propane-based fire pit soon!

Dog Friendly: We have a total of 3 rooms that are dog friendly.  1 King room and 2 Double Queen rooms on the ground floor.  If you plan to bring your dog, give us a call or book online (just be sure to pick one of the dog friendly rooms and specify whether you have 1 or 2 dogs).  Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate any other types of pets.

The Shoreline Restaurant is under new ownership this year and are currently open for dinner each week Tuesday through Saturday!

Have a larger group?  There are condominiums in the Shoreline Village too.  We aren’t involved in these but are happy to share contact information.

Lastly, we are partnering with the Harbor Inn Algoma (formerly Harbor Inn Motel) this year!  If you plan a visit up and would like to take a break on the way up (or down), we can offer a package deal.  Algoma is approximately 1hr 15min south of Gills Rock, on the Lake Michigan shoreline.  If you are interested in finding out more, give us a call!  920-854-2900

As always, when you come visit, at least one of us is onsite the entire summer, and we do love to meet our guests, so if you don’t see us out and about before the end of your stay, be sure to knock on the door to say hello.  Evy is often over at the craft shed, which is the building with the rounded roof just down from Charley’s Smokehouse!

Hope to see you soon!

Mark & Evy
