Sturgeon Bay, Wis. (May 10, 2021) – Once run as the Reynolds House, new owners Lauren and Matt Huston have revamped and reopened the Sturgeon Bay bed and breakfast on 7th and Nebraska St as the Door County Dragonfly.
Opening a bed and breakfast was not initially in the plan for owners Lauren and Matt Huston, but, when the pandemic hit and their jobs in Milwaukee were affected, they were eager to make a change.
The two moved back to Sturgeon Bay in October 2020, where Matt’s family has resided since 1851 and where the couple met in 2015. Between the two they have experience in hospitality, marketing, and events and were excited to begin their venture in updating the bed and breakfast to open as the Door County Dragonfly.
The 3,800 sq ft house, built in 1900, displays both Victorian and Arts and Crafts architecture. When updating the bed and breakfast, they decided to keep in line with the historic charm and transitional design while adding fresh and vibrant elements, such as a dramatic mural in the parlor, and an eclectic collection of art.
“We wanted to revitalize the space, give it new life,” Lauren said. “Sometimes when traveling you find a place that you just love, and we want to be that for our guests.”
The Door County Dragonfly has three bedrooms available for booking, including a 4-person suite on the third floor. Complete with private bathrooms, some featuring whirlpool tubs and gas fireplaces, each room, along with common areas and a wraparound porch, offers a unique and curated style that blends classic with contemporary. Along with a light breakfast guests can also enjoy the daily happy hour featuring local wine, beer, and cheese before heading out for dinner or a night on the town.
