Chanticleer Guest House
*I'll be very happy to give any of these boxes back
to their original owners upon request. I have only adopted
these boxes for upkeep and historical means and do not count them
among my planted boxes.
Wisconsin Letterboxes of
Chanticleer Guest House (5/9/1999 LbNA #1593)
The original box is still in place, but the original logbook was
destroyed by water and mold. I have modified the original
clues just a bit. Modifications are in red.
According to post #1533 on the "big list", Dierdra knows the owners
of the Chanticleer and the owners look forward to having
letterboxers come and visit:
"My friends up there own a guest house with woods. They stated they
will be looking forward to meeting everyone that would be coming up.
They also say that those that do, can stay awhile if they wish and
a wonderful time."
So enjoy yourself while you find the box without feeling like you
are trespassing. You might even thank the owners or even stay
at the B & B.
Update (10/22/06): The owners ask that you check-in with them at the
office before searching for the box. Check-in is at the
"barn". If you don't see someone, there is a phone there to
page them. (I do not think the current owners are the owners
Dierdra knew.) Thanks!
Clues: On the north side of Sturgeon Bay (on
Hwy. 57/42) follow the signs to the Chanticleer Guest House Bed and
Breakfast. The signs are fading and
disappearing. Take Hwy. 57/42 north to Cty BB. Turn left
onto BB and drive until you get to the intersection with Cty HH.
Turn right onto HH and about a quarter mile up the road the
Chanticleer will be on your right. Pull into their parking lot
and park as close to the gazebo as you can.
Start at the gazebo, follow the path to the woods. Take the right
path at the "Y" over the footbridge. Once over the little
wooden footbridge you will be heading east. You will pass a large
pile of wood on your right (The wood
pile may be gone now.). Past that
(about 114 steps or 131 steps from the end of the bridge) you will find a stone
circle on the right hand side along the edge of the trees. Walk
toward the stones. Nestled in this circle you will find the
letterbox. Note: There is a
faint trail developing to the letterbox off the main trail.
Since the sign at the beginning of the main trail asks us to stay on
the trail but I didn't want to move the box, please let's do them a
favor and use multiple ways to get to the box so we can let the
faint trail recover it's former life. If possible, find a way
to the circle of rocks that minimizes any foot traffic to the area.
