Great cabin in a wonderful village
Great cabin in a wonderful village
My family and I have been spending summer holidays in Ephraim since the early 1970's. Ephraim is the most perfect village in Door County, and this cottage has a wonderful location. Within walking distance of Wilson's, the boat rentals, small museums, and interesting shops, it is also within biking distance of lots more things as well. And of course it is right across the street from the beach! The comfort of the cabin was excellent with lots of places to eat, to sit and relax, and comfortable beds. The cottage's iconic look with the white frame, green shutters and red roof is also very appealing. We enjoyed using the fireplace in the evening, even in August, just to take a bit of chill and damp out of the air on a rainy evening, and the rack of firewood was loaded with seasoned wood. We also liked having a BBQ grill at our disposal. Having a clothes washer and dryer available on premises felt quite luxurious. The bookshelves were filled with paperbacks of all description. The game shelf provided us with lots of fun one evening when we felt like staying in. There were plenty of outdoor furnishings in the way of tables and chairs. Parking was not a problem as our two cars easily fit behind the dwelling. I loved that there were window boxes filled with pretty summer flowers. A few minor quibbles; It was hard to get the towels all washed and in the dryer by the ten o'clock checkout time for all 5 of us, though we made it. Also, the beds were not fully made up. We were required to put the top sheet on all the beds, or pay a fine.(Who is not putting a top sheet on?) All the dishes were to be washed (not an unreasonable request since there is a dishwasher available), but they were also required to be put away in the cabinets before we left at ten o'clock. In the bathroom, which we all shared, there was one two-inch bar of soap. The hand soap dispenser was completely empty. I would have appreciated having the cottage stocked with these basics in good supply. The refrigerator had a small sign taped to the freezer stating that there is no icemaker. That’s fine with me. What wasn’t fine was that there were also no ice cube trays at all so that we could at least have a couple of cubes in our drinks without buying a whole bag of ice. Overall, our family enjoyed our stay at “The Beach”, and would recommend it to others.

Manager response: Thank you for taking the time to post a review! The cottage is perfectly located right across from the Ephraim public beach, one of the nicest beaches in Door County. As the reviewer says, it is comfortable and picturesque. Since we are a property management company, we do our best to provide good accommodations at each of our properties while managing many locations checking in & checking out on the same day. For this reason, we ask guests to do the tasks the reviewer mentions. We provide this information in advance so hopefully none of our guests are surprised by that. Additionally, as the reviewer mentions, we do only supply a small bar of hand soap upon guests' arrival; again, we do provide the information on what is and isn't provided in advance. We ask guests to make their own top sheet due to state health regulations regarding bed-making that are difficult for us to enforce with managing properties all over the county. As I said, we do our best to provide good accommodations at our properties; there are advantages and disadvantages to working with a company, directly with an owner, or renting a hotel room, and the points that the reviewer makes are some of the unique characteristics that come with working with a management company for your vacation rental rather than with an owner or with hotel management. Thank you again for your review, and for your stay!
