Winter and Spring Amenities
Rowleys Bay Resort offers a wide variety of lodging options as well as an on-site pool, restaurant serving buffet breakfast and dinner, bakery open daily, and pub open each evening. These four amenities are open mid-May through late-October. In the late fall, winter, and early spring, these amenities are closed.
During this time of the year we’re proud to be your Northern Door County quiet retreat! We offer Woodside and Lakeside rooms in the lodge, our Suite Dreams and Oh So Suite, and many of the vacation homes are still available for rent. We keep the fireplace on and the lobby cozy warm. You’ll still enjoy amenities such as daily housekeeping in the lodge, complimentary coffee and tea in the lobby, and WiFi throughout the lodge. You can even buy fresh frozen cinnamon rolls and pecan rolls through the front desk. Just thaw, heat if you wish, and enjoy!
There are plenty of dining options available nearby and there’s still oh so much to do! While it’s true that a lot closes down during the winter, Rowleys Bay Resort remains your waterfront peaceful retreat. See what’s available to book online, or give us a call and plan your getaway today!
