Wisconsin Trails highlights Port Washington in April 2008 Issue February 26, 2008

Today’s mail brought our issue of Wisconsin Trails Magazine which highlights the Lake Michigan Magic of Port Washington ( pages 16-18).

You can read the magazine article on their website at http://www.wisconsintrails.com/content/57.php
which also includes a picture of……….

you guessed it, the Port Washington Inn!

Along with a photo depicting the grounds of the inn in summer,
here’s “the scoop” :

“If you’re in the mood for a traditional B&B experience, the Port Washington Inn offers five rooms, two of them suites, in a 1903 Victorian in a residential neighborhood.
Breakfast is served buffet-style in the downstairs dining room, and the inn gets bonus points for its resplendent gardens, lake views, and commitment to life in the green lane.”

Our inn ad located on the inside front cover, references our Travel Green Wisconsin Certification and the Gourmet Picnics we offer May thru October!

Ozaukee Trailside Birding Guide

This new Birding Guide was just published and is available at the inn.

Quoting from the guide:

It is certainly true that Ozaukee County is for the birds.
Our geographic location and divergent land uses create a great environment for birds and for bird watching.
Some of the best birding in Wisconsin, throughout the year, is done at key locations in the County.
During migration, the Lake Michigan shoreline guides numerous species of ducks, geese, gulls, hawks, shorebirds, and many Neotropical migrant landbirds to their breeding and wintering sites within, and far away from, Ozaukee County.

The Milwaukee River corridor provides important feeding and resting habitat to a multitude of migrating warblers, sparrows, thrushes, and wrens.
The fields, forests, and farmsteads also serve as breeding habitat for many of these species.
We also have our resident woodpeckers, cardinals, finches, chickadees, and jays that brave the winter and stay fed at our feeders.

The Port Washington Inn’s location is perfect for accessing the
Birding Hotspots within Port Washinton:
the Interurban Trail, Upper Lake Park, the Port Washington Harbor,
and the Port Washington Ravine.

Port Washington is also a good central point along the trail making it easy to venture south or north of the city for uniquely differing experiences of the trail.

Take one of our Gourmet Picnics with you for the day and you will be birdwatching without interruption!
