We will be back!

This house is cozy and well kept. Lots of room outside and in. Well stocked with the necessities. The location is great too. Very close to Ephraim and all the other adorable communities. Only wish there was a fire pit out back.

Ephraim cottage

Came with a group of friends for a wedding, very close off main drag of hwy 42. The cabin has absolutely everything you could need. Owners very accessible/responsive to questions. Had a fantastic stay- having a fire in the firepit is a must

Beautiful Ephraim retreat!

  • 5 of 5

John's home in Ephraim was a perfect base for our long weekend in Door County. The house is an historic log home that has been maintained and updated beautifully. We felt like we were in a true north woods log cabin, but still had plenty of room to spread out with my wife and my parents. The front deck is a perfect place to sit outside and enjoy the afternoon sun. We also really enjoyed the newly installed fire pit behind the house set among the large stand of cedars on the sloping lot. Though set on one of the quieter back roads of Ephraim, it is only a 2-minute walk down the hill to the water front and Wilson's ice cream.

Our family loved this home!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely and well-cared for home was perfect for our family: 3 generations including 5 adults and 5 children. It is equipped with everything needed for a great vacation: lots of indoor and outdoor seating including Adirondack chairs around the fire pit; beach towels, beach chairs, and sand toys; everything needed in a working kitchen and an ample pantry; washer/dryer, etc. There is a spacious living room with a large sofa and another smaller sitting room. Our grandchildren made extensive use of the game closet with monopoly games going almost continuously. Each bedroom has dressers and a small closet, including the bunk room. We had read that the bunk room is a "walk through" to the master, but it is actually a small room with a dresser and closet. The two bathrooms are tiny, but very workable. We found the outdoor half bath to be quite convenient when spending time outdoors.

The location of the property is wonderful; right in central Ephraim. Just steps from historical buildings and the two churches in town, walking distance to Wilson's Ice Cream and other restaurants, and not far from the local Ephraim beach (maybe half a mile walk?). They owners provide lots of information on activities and they took care to be sure we had everything we needed. We LOVED our stay! We hope to return!

Just loved it!

Beautiful home, Comfortable and great location. Perfectly located within easy walking distance to Ephraim and water front. The layout is great and bedrooms are nicely laid out and conducive to sharing with another family.

The owners are easy to work with and obviously love their home. Thank you so much for sharing it!
