Website Design

Our website design philosophy is very simple. We create websites that visitors want to return to, again and again, because the content is so interesting, the design is so good, and the photography is so compelling. Plus, our websites are known for another factor — our websites make the viewer want to experience the actual business, in person, the next time they’re in Door County!


And, we use and recommend WordPress for all of our websites. Why WordPress? We believe that 90% of small business websites can be created and managed with this unique open source platform. For example, THIS website is powered by WordPress.


WordPress is…

  • Easy to install and maintain
  • Supported by all hosting companies
  • The most popular platform and therefore is updated regularly
  • Easy to update with security patches
  • Secure
  • Great for use as a blog, website or both
  • Loved by Google, which keeps on coming back to check for new content, thus driving your Google ranking higher and higher
  • Easy to update!
