This cozy cottage is certainly cozy!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for my family of 6. All the rooms are spacious and love the number of windows all throughout the house. The early part of our week, we kept the windows open for a most welcomed fresh air and sunshine!! The attention to detail was greatly appreciated! The kitchen was well stocked with gadgets, pots, pans, plates, bowls, etc.. The bathrooms were well supplied and loved the Homedics device with soothing natural sounds in the bedrooms! Looking forward to plan our next trip and to stay at the Cozy Cottage!

A very well maintained property that is right in Ephraim.

  • 5 of 5

This is a very clean and well maintained property in Ephraim. We have rented this property 2 years now, and will continue to do so (when available). The kitchen, dining room, and living room are all open, which makes it perfect for gatherings. Also has a nice deck with a private back yard. A peaceful place to spend your time in Door County. We loved it.

Perfect Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our 3 young girls (ages 1, almost-3, and 5) and it was perfect! The cottage was SO clean, incredibly well stocked, and felt like home. The girls loved the bunk beds and all the toys that were there! We loved having a kids bathroom for lots of (much needed) kid baths and a separate master bath for my husband and I. The cottage had a pack n play and high chair for our youngest. It seemed like everything was thought of...even sound machines to help the kids sleep better. Tons of towels available. Tupperware so we could pack picnic lunches!

We also loved this location in Ephraim!! It was quiet and relaxing, but also centrally located so car rides were short to other Door County areas. We spent hours everyday at nearby beaches including Ephraim public beach which we could walk to. We also visited The Farm, Lautenbach's Orchard, Peninsula State Park and Whitefish Dunes State Park. We had ice cream at Wilson's and had dinner twice at Fred & Fuzzy's. It was so nice to have the full kitchen at the cottage because we prepared all of our other meals there! The weather was perfect and our whole family had a blast! We would absolutely stay here again!!!!!!!!! Highly, highly, highly recommend this place for a young family or ANYONE :)
