The Alpine Resort and Golf Course in Egg Harbor is up for sale.
The iconic resort has been in the Bertschinger family since it opened its doors in 1922.
“Resort ownership today includes siblings, cousins, uncles and aunts,” the family announced in a press release. “Because of the complexity of the ownership structure spread out over family members, along with changing interests, the family has decided to list the property for sale.”
The family said the resort and golf course will continue operations during the sales process and it will not impact reservations.
“As anyone who has started and maintained a family business knows, putting Alpine up for sale was a really hard decision to make,” said Emily Pitchford, member of the Bertschinger family and part owner of Alpine Resort & Golf Course. “The resort, this town and our guests are so intertwined with the Egg Harbor community. Alpine has been a part of our family and the community’s family for almost 100 years.”
Alpine Golf opens its doors for the 2018 season on May 1 and the resort opens on May 25.
The property is listed at $15 million with Newmark Grubb Pfefferle and is available to be subdivided or redeveloped. Alpine Resort & Golf Course features more than 250 acres, including a half mile of frontage on the Bay of Green Bay, a 36-hole golf course, tennis courts, a sandy beach, heated pool and many other highlights. The property and its surroundings offer guests a simple and uncomplicated way of relaxing in the beauty of Door County.
“The Alpine is an institution with a deep, rich history which will not be forgotten,” said Egg Harbor Village Administrator Ryan Heise.
