Hallå from Heather!
I'm Heather, the owner of Drömhus, and I am a 4th generation Door County enthusiast. I am happy to be back home here in Sturgeon Bay and can't wait to meet you and share our story and space.
Door County has always held deep roots for my family. In the 1940's, my family built cottages near Idlewild where my great-grandparents, Eva and Anders Hammarström, raised three boys. It has always been a very special place for everyone, especially my father, Terry.
Growing up in the 1980's and 90's, my family lived on Bayshore Drive in Egg Harbor where I spent summers going to the haunted house, hanging out at the drive-in, and working at Al's, The Landmark, Village Cafe, The Summertime (now Barringer's), and more. I grew up surrounded by Door County's wonderful service industry.
Like so many of us, I went away seeking adventure, but now that I am back, I couldn't be more grateful to be home. My dad has since passed away, but I decided to pick up his dream where he left off. We had always wanted to be a team up here, and through Drömhus, I feel that he is with me every day. I am so glad you're here to experience this cozy space, to savor the comfort food, and to enjoy good company.
Meet the Crew
Chef Jeff comes to us from St. Paul, Minnesota where he spent the first half of his life listening to punk music and raising three sons. He worked as a cook for many years and is also a fantastic handyman. Welcome to Sturgeon Bay, Jeff!
Chris is our bartender and quasi Sommelier who has worked in the wine industry off and on for 25 years. He will make you smile with his trivia questions and sings a mean rendition of Rawhide at karaoke. We're so grateful he's here!
