Visitors' most prominent question: What's open?

Louise Howson from the Sister Bay Advancement Association presented to the Village Board Tuesday night about the state of summer business. She noted that a couple of hotels in the area were fully occupied on Saturday night, with overall bookings down roughly 20 percent compared to this time last year. Howson said retail was also showing positive signs, especially on the weekend. Traffic during the week remains sluggish, though. Things could be looking up for late summer, and early fall as Howson says she is fielding phone calls in recent weeks from people planning on making the trip to Door County looking for normalcy.


Dining in at a restaurant is generally considered one of the riskier activities to engage in regarding COVID-19. If there is demand for that, the hope is that patrons will be happy to stay at area lodgings and shop the offerings at retail stores. Only four Sister Bay restaurants do not offer a dine-in option currently.
