Welcome to the Harbor House and Guest Cottage. located in the heart of Ephraim, Wisconsin!

Ephraim, with its sparkling harbor and picturesque landscape, is undoubtedly the crown jewel of Door County's bayside villages.

Looking out from our sand beach, you have a picture-perfect view of Horseshoe (Eagle) Island straight ahead. Look left and see Penninsula State Park, with its limestone bluffs. To your right, you'll see the white-washed church steeples of charming and historic Ephraim.

Our 5 bedroom cottage, located on a quiet street at 9801 Brookside Lane, is just 100 yards from the private sand beach provided for our guests. The exterior appearance has been updated with brand new siding, soffits, and facia as well as all new windows and screens. The Harbor House has a large screened porch, living room, dining room with seating for 12, kitchen, 2 full baths, and 5 bedrooms (2 master bedrooms, each with queen mattress, two bedrooms with a set of twin beds each, & one with bunk bed).

We also provide a Weber charcoal grill and an outdoor fire pit. All beds have pillows, bedspreads, blankets, and mattress pads. Please note that sheets, pillowcases and towels are NOT PROVIDED.

This house is large enough for 2-3 families to share easily, or gather your friends together and plan a golf outing or shopping get-away. Parking is provided for 3 cars and 1 boat. For groups that have a large number of people, consider booking both the 5 bedroom house and guest cottage.

Exactly what we hoped for

  • 5 of 5

My family of eight had a wonderful time staying at the harbor house. The kitchen was well stocked and there was plenty of space on the main living area and porch for us to enjoy one another's company. The waterfront and Many restaurants and shops are within walking distance. We also enjoyed using the kayaks and front yard for yard games. The owners were very responsive to my questions making our experience all the more positive.

Great place with plenty of room!

  • 4 of 5

Place was very nice and big enough for our family of 8 with room to spare. Randy was a responsive host and easy to work with. Only reason for 4 stars is due to the inconvenience of having to bring all my own linens and towels. Stripping all the beds to put sheets on is not what we wanted to do after a 4 hour drive.

We stayed in the Harbor House in October of 2017 and really enjoyed it. The house is located in Ephraim which is perfect because it situates you right in the middle of everything that Door County has to offer. With that said it also gives you some space and privacy. The property was very clean and cozy. The yard is large and has a great fire pit. The owners were attentive and checked in with us to make sure everything was OK.

We will definately go back to the Harbor House.

Nice place

  • 4 of 5

The Cottage was perfect for our needs and the location was great. Very well kept and clean. Pride of ownership was obvious. Also nice that there was a Weber Grill. I was surprised how fast the Neighborhood Watch Beach Monitor was on us though. Stepped on the Beach and BAM there he was. It was fine he was just making sure we were not invading. Would stay again if back in Door County.
