Cozy Cottage is a great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

I and two girlfriends spent four days in Door Co. and made the Cozy Cottage our home away from home while there. The house was immaculate upon our arrival. The kitchen is well stocked with every appliance and dish/cup/utensil you could want. Plenty of towels and comfortable beds.

The location in Ephraim was quiet and convenient to walk into town. Wilson's Ice Cream Parlor is just moments away!!

I'd highly recommend this location if you are looking for a place to stay.

Overall a very good choice for a 2nd year stay

  • 4 of 5

The cottage/house was very clean and ready for us. This was the 2nd year we stayed with our 2 adult sons. A great centralized location, Good Eggs a short walk, public beach not too far away either. Concerns were this is not set up for more than 1 couple as only 1 bedroom has a queen bed, one bedroom has bunk beds and the third has a set of twin beds. The beds were also short for our 6 ft tall sons. Oh well! Other concerns this time around were they spread milorginite on the lawn while we were there on a Saturday afternoon preventing us from playing lawn games our last afternoon/evening there & there was one day that the owner entered the house while we were gone, we noticed windows had been closed and they left something on the kitchen counter for the grill. A bit concerning even tho we realize it is their property.

Owner's Response: Hi Cindy, I'm glad you found the house clean & ready for use. I dropped off a new cooking grate for the grill because some guests prefer a surface they can 'wash' clean. I put it on the kitchen counter so you were sure to see it. There was a severe weather alert on my phone so I closed the windows while I was there. Ephraim has had excessive amounts of rain the last month. We make every effort to do maintenance projects so our guests are not affected. I re-checked, and ' "milorganite is organic and safe for kids & pets". We were glad you chose to stay at our cottage a second time and look forward to your future visits.

Cozy, spotless and spacious

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in the Cozy Cottage over Labor Day weekend. It was such a pleasant surprise!

We arrived quite late and the owners had thoughtfully turned a few lights on so we'd feel welcome.

The house is spotlessly clean, spacious and has everything you need. From dishes to linens to games to play the owners seem to have thought of everything you could hope to find in a rental. In addition, it is well-decorated and has thoughtful touches to make you feel at home. There is parking at the cottage and you will find it is a short walk to quite a few things to do in Ephraim and a short drive to much of the fun of Door County. Our only regret is that we didn't get to stay longer.

This is the second year my family has stayed at the Cozy Cottage! It is so clean and well cared for, in addition to being perfectly located. It is on a quiet woodsy street, but just a short walk to Ephraim Beach, and a very short ride to Peninsula State Park. The owner has thoughtfully stocked the cottage with many supplies, games, etc. Some of our favorite activities include renting a pontoon boat at the harbor in Ephraim, and renting paddle boards at Nicolet Beach in Peninsula State Park. We have had a blast two years in a row, on our vacations at the Cozy Cottage. It is truly a lovely place to stay.

Sure to return to the Cozy Cottage

  • 4 of 5

My family and I had a fabulous week at the cozy cottage. It's location in Ephraim is ideal: on a quiet street yet easily accessible to everything you need and want. The house is clean and well appointed and the 4 of us felt relaxed and comfortable. It truly felt like a home away from home.

Couldn't ask for anything more!

  • 5 of 5

4 adults stayed in this beautiful house for 3 nights and I wish we could have vacationed longer. I have rented many homes before and this one by far had everything you could possibly need. It was in a perfect location and we were able to walk easily to the beach, Wilsons and Good Eggs. One night we took a sunset sailboat cruise.

I cannot recommend this house enough. The owners have taken great care of it and done many updates. Looking forward to coming back again soon.
