Stay in Door County: What's New at Parkwood Lodge?
Planning a trip to the peninsula? Parkwood Lodge is a relaxing and cozy spot to spend your Door County vacation. Tucked just off Highway 42 near the vibrant community of Fish Creek, you’ll find a little bit of everything nearby – from state parks and lighthouses to one-of-a-kind shopping and dining experiences that will improve your quality of life. Not to mention, we’ve made some improvements of our own!
Past Renovations at Parkwood Lodge
Ever since the Stillman family purchased Beowulf Lodge in 2008, we’ve made improving our guests’ comfort a top priority. Through diligent planning, Parkwood Lodge has steadily raised the bar for quality.
Early on, all windows were swapped out, new siding, roofing, and paint was applied, and landscaping was performed. Cosmetically, Parkwood Lodge really began to look the part…but there was more behind-the-scenes work to be done.
On top of updating our utility equipment, we also put an emphasis on remodeling our rooms over the past four winters – 10 rooms each year. By consistently making the effort, we now have 40 of our 60 rooms looking new, including all rooms in the Aspen and Dogwood buildings!
Recent Improvements and New Updates
Our remodeled rooms have been structurally updated through replacement of the flooring and subflooring (laminate on ground floor units and carpet upstairs), re-plastering the walls, and installing new electrical with extra outlets – up to 19 per room. The whole family can charge their devices at once!
These rooms are designed with our guests in mind, featuring all-new beds (two queens/room), refrigerators, microwaves, flat screen TVs, and lamps/fixtures with outlets! Some come equipped with kitchenettes, which are perfect for an afforable stay.
We’ve also created family suites, which sleep up to seven, by taking three rooms and merging them into two. These recently renovated rooms include three queen-sized beds and a twin-sized bunk for the kids.
We’re Not Done Yet
There are even more improvements coming. We have plenty of ideas swirling on how to make our property even better, and we welcome your feedback, as well! Not long ago, our bonfire pit was just a guest suggestion – now it’s a popular spot on our grounds.
We’re looking to continue making room updates. This 2017/2018 winter season, we plan on remodeling 12 units in the Birch building, which will include all of our king rooms. The following winter, we’ll be looking to update the Cedar building, which houses all of our suites. At that point, every room we have will have been renovated!
Expanding the pool deck, installing an outdoor pool, putting more work into the tennis court, and adding a picnic pavilion are other upcoming projects on our radar. There are some exciting things on the horizon.
