Wonderful home in Ephraim!

  • 5 of 5

We had a girls weekend with eight girls and enjoyed our stay at this home. The cabin was large, spacious and fully equipped. The location is also excellent! Very convenient to everything -- a short drive or a beautiful walk along the water for coffee and ice cream. We would highly recommend this property for your vacation in Door County! We can't wait to come back.

Great home in Ephraim!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of seven really enjoyed our stay at this property! The cabin is very large and everyone had plenty of space. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen fully stocked, everything was very clean - I can't think of anything that was missing, everything was taken care of. The location is also fantastic - a quick walk to Wilson's for ice cream, the old Post Office restaurant for a fish boil (or any other meal), the public beach, or any of the nice shops in Ephraim. Although the cabin is only a block away from the "main drag" in town, it felt further away because it is tucked away in a large wooded lot that provided a lot of privacy - we felt the location was the perfect combination of privacy and close proximity to the attractions in town. The cabin also was a great combination of feeling rustic, yet modern, with wi-fi and multiple flat screen TVs. We would highly recommend this property for your vacation in Door County!

Well cared for in a perfect middle-spot for Door County

  • 5 of 5

Our entire stay was fantastic, from beginning to end. The property has obviously been well taken care of through the years. It's nestled in a wooded hill, in a quiet area with occasional church bells. You also get the occasional hiker/jogger through the neighborhood, and everyone is very friendly.

Accommodations were comfortable - we had 6 travelers, and all beds were comfortable. The shared spaces are wide open and comfortable - and CLEAN! Also, we found a stack of games to play in the laundry-closet.

Bring your groceries! There is a nice kitchen - fridge and all the appliances you need (oven, microwave, etc) - and a fantastic weber coal grill (be sure to bring a starter, just in case - they had one on site for us!).

The owners / management are great communicators - we had the impression that they wanted to make sure we were happy.

Great place - competitive rates - thanks Ephraim Lodge!

The home was cozy and fully stocked with anything you might need.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time visiting Ephraim, WI. The town was perfectly located next to the state park and surrounding towns that were a little bigger. The home was fully stocked with anything you might need. The owners were beyond considerate making sure our stay was comfortable and perfect. I would highly recommend renting through them and can not wait for us to plan our next stay there. With 4 children who love to be outside the yard was huge and perfect for the kids to explore. The outdoor fire grill was awesome. Thanks for opening up your home to renters!

Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

Home is beautiful, well-equipped, very comfortable and charming. The Mahers went out of their way to be welcoming and provided great information. (We had a fabulous dinner at the Waterfront based on their recommendation.) We'd definitely stay here again.

Wonderful Spot for a Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this property. It is was a perfect size (and well-appointed) for our family vacation. We spent many mornings on the front porch and had room for everyone. It also has a fantastic location for walking to Wilson's, the beach, and getting to Sister Bay or Fish Creek. We would love to return.
