Gary and Debbie Krause were both born and raised in Door County, Wisconsin. Their families, the Krauses and the Reinhards, each date back three generations of Door County businesses in both Ephraim and Fish Creek. With deep roots in the community and a history of family business, Gary and Debbie, along with their children Matthew and Kayla, were excited to build the Bay Breeze Resort in 1995. They enjoy sharing Door County with their customers. Whenever possible they shop locally for the business and love to hear guest feedback on the artwork and bedding in the rooms or after they walk through the grounds and enjoy the gardens and yard art. Gary and Debbie are blessed to have a wonderful team around them who love Bay Breeze Resort as much as they do – this business would not be as special as it is without them. During their down time Gary and Debbie enjoy traveling to visit their children. In the summertime you will find them gardening and cooking.
