As the sinking sun sends golden streaks across Lake Michigan, guests gather at Westwood Shore Resort’s rocky beach to sip drinks in chairs, watch little ones by a sandbox, swim or picnic. Even for those who choose to stay inside, the 38 nicely appointed one- and two-bedroom condo units with balconies take full advantage of the stellar lake views. (An indoor pool with nautical murals also overlooks the lake.)
Westwood guests can make themselves at home by stocking their full kitchens with just-picked produce and pastries from area farmers markets. Most units also offer dining areas and spacious living rooms with gas fireplaces. For those who prefer a more active vacation filled with scenic drives and exploration, Westwood makes a good centrally located base for dining out, browsing galleries and shopping Door County’s coastal villages. Just make sure to return by dusk, you won’t want to miss any of these golden sunsets.
Rates range from $79 to $259.
