Pumpkin Patch Festival visitors hoping to stay overnight in Egg Harbor will likely have to drive a bit further to find a room. The festival and other fall events have become so popular that motel and inn operators, like Dennis Statz of White Lace Inn in Sturgeon Bay, are finding themselves disappointing last-minute travelers.
While summer is the peak tourism season for Door County, October weekend events and the fall color season also create a big demand for lodging. Kelly Catarozoli, owner of the Foxglove Inn of Sturgeon Bay, says fall bookings at her bed and breakfast started coming just after the 4th of July.
The most up-to-date information on room availabilities can be found by contacting the Sturgeon Bay Visitor Center, which calls area motels and inns to see who might have rooms available. Log on to our website DoorCountyDailyNews.com for more information
