Thanksgiving weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is the first time we have stayed in Door County in the fall. And our first time staying at Kulma 1 cottage. We had a wonderful stay and enjoyed the comforts of home in the cottage. There were only two of us, and our 2 little dogs, so the house was bigger than we needed. All the bedrooms were nicely decorated and set for making guests feel at home. We had a fire one night in the fireplace, which was very nice. The cozy kitchen had what we needed since we ate out for the most part. So many good places to eat right close to this cabin. If you are looking for contemporary decor and modern amenities this would not be the place for you. The tv is old, and the furniture is vintage or has the vintage flair. We had trouble getting the cable remote to work, but everything else worked fine. We loved everything about our stay since that is our preference for time away from home, and would definitely stay again. Kulma cottage 2 and 3 are on the same property and share the driveway.

A great cabin for the family

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay at Kulma Cottage. We chose it based on the one review provided under this listing. We weren't disappointed. It is a wonderful place for a family (including our dog). There are three bedrooms upstairs and one downstairs just off the kitchen. the master bedroom is a good size and has a walk-out deck that has steps down to the backyard. The kitchen is a nice size with a gas stove top, and oven (no dishwasher though). The living area is cozy and makes for a nice gathering area to watch DVDs. There are also board games and books to choose from on the bookshelves. The window unit air conditioners were plenty to cool the place down during the day (we only needed the AC on two of the days during our weeklong stay). The location is very convenient to Wilson's and the Ephraim Town Hall (only about a 10 minute walk). The wooded setting is just off of German Road up the hill from Highway 42 and made for very peaceful evenings. There is also a wooden bin out in front that is full of balls, bats, frisbees and outdoor types of toys.

I recommend this cabin to others considering a family type of stay (it would be too big for a couple). What you should expect: a very nice cabin that makes for a very comfortable stay. What you should not expect: posh 5-star accommodations with pressed linens and decorator soaps. If you come with those expectations, you won't be disappointed.

A couple things need to be noted though: if you have an AT&T cell phone, you will not have service at the cabin (we have AT&T). This is pretty typical throughout Ephraim for AT&T users. Also, the cabin does not have wifi. We used a portable "mifi" to get a connection when we needed to, but for us, it was actually nice to be "off the grid" for a few days.

Excellent place to stay, especially with families

  • 5 of 5

We've returned to Kulma #1 for each of the last 3 years in July. The cottage is a fantastic place for a family to stay - 4 reasonable bedrooms, good-sized kitchen, and great yard with grill and hammock. It's only a 5-10 minute walk to the beach with kids, or to get ice cream at Wilson's. But it is a block off 42, so no traffic noise.

The place has lots of character - it is obviously not a new development. And this is exactly the charm of the cottage. We highly recommend it, except during July when we want to keep booking.
