Progressive Dinners at Historic Fish Creek Inns

A “movable feast” is the best way to describe a gourmet dinner which begins at one of Fish Creek’s historic inns, continues on to a second for the main course, then finishes at a restaurant for dessert. The Progressive Holiday Dinner Weekends, taking place Dec. 9 & 10, 16 & 17, and Jan. 6 & 7, are hosted by the White Gull Inn, Thorp House Inn and Mr. Helsinki’s Restaurant and Wine Bar.

The Thorp House and White Gull are planning memorable weekend packages, culminating Saturday evening in a five course dinner complete with wine and live music, as guests tour the two inns and Mr. Helsinki’s, all bedecked festively for the holiday season.

The dinner will begin at 5:30 pm, with hors d’oeuvres at the charming Thorp House Inn, built in 1902 by Freeman Thorp, of the founding family of Fish Creek. Innkeeper Melanie Camp and her staff will be on hand to relate the history of the Thorp House.

Dinner Guests will then be transported on to the White Gull Inn by horse drawn wagon. The 114-year-old White Gull is the oldest continual operating inn in Door County, and has received national recognition for both its historic accommodations and award-winning restaurant. Innkeepers Andy and Jan Coulson and their staff will conduct tours and discuss the inn’s history.

Guests will then stroll down to Mr. Helsinki’s for dessert. Located above the historic Fish Creek Market, Mr. Helsinki’s is renowned for its innovative and delicious cuisine, including wonderful homemade desserts.

The Progressive Dinners are open to weekend guests of either the White Gull or Thorp House Inn.
