Here’s 5 reasons we believe you’ll enjoy your Door County Stay and Play at Maxwelton Braes Lodge.
1) Hospitality and Nostalgia: At Maxwelton Braes Lodge we pride ourselves on helping you feel comfortable, relaxed, and take part in Door County history. The Maxwelton Braes Golf Course located on-site was built in 1929. At that time, the Clubhouse was only for select members and their invited guests. After a few years, the Clubhouse went public. As you stay with us, step back in time, become part of this magnificent history yet look forward to the amenities expected of today’s guests like wifi and air conditioning.
2) Serenity: Baileys Harbor in Door County is located on the Lake Michigan side of the Peninsula. Although much quieter than the bay side, Baileys Harbor offers shopping, dining, plenty of sight-seeing, kayaking, fishing, biking, hiking, and just about anything you could imagine you’d want in a vacation. With more room to explore, Baileys Harbor offers an ideal vacation to those who want to have it all but not hear it all.
3) Golf Course & Tennis Courts: A sportsman’s paradise! Door County is a sportsman’s paradise and at Maxwelton Braes Lodge our guests enjoy an on-site golf course, tennis courts, large green space for yard games, and an amazing back patio and fire pit. Our guests enjoy 50% off the posted golf rates to make your golfing experience even more enjoyable. Then, after a busy day of golf, kayaking, hiking, shopping and playing, come to the patio and enjoy a glass of wine, meet new friends, or gaze into the fire to relive your beautiful Door County Day or to inspire a romantic evening.
4) Sandpiper Restaurant & Pasta Vino Restaurant: Each restaurant has been voted as one of the Best Places for either Breakfast or Dinner by locals and visitors, we are blessed to have the Sandpiper Restaurant and Pasta Vino Restaurant on-site. New for 2016, the Sandpiper will now be open for lunch. We can’t wait to see the wonderful food creations coming from the Sandpiper. Pasta Vino will be back open in 2016 for your evening dining pleasure.
5) Ridges Sanctuary & Cana Island Lighthouse: Nature lovers enjoy both the Ridges Sanctuary and Cana Island Lighthouse. Join a Ridges naturalist for a relaxing 90-minute walk on the trails with their Guided Sanctuary Hikes. Learn a little about the history of The Ridges and a lot about the wildflowers, insects and other features of Wisconsin’s first land trust. Includes access to the Upper Range Light lantern room and is appropriate for all ages. Bird Hikes are also offered at the sanctuary along with special activities throughout the year.

Cana Island is one of Door County Wisconsin’s most popular lighthouses and has been standing watch on the shore of Lake Michigan for more than 140 years. Enjoy the entire 8.7-acre island that includes the 89-foot-tall light tower, the original home of the lighthouse keeper and his family, and the oil house where fuel for the light was stored. Cana Island is open from May through October, seven days a week, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. For more information on Cana Island Lighthouse, please visit their website at: http://www.dcmm.org/cana-island-lighthouse/.
