About the Property

Private Cabin in wooded location, Close to Attractions

Ephraim cabin description

The Spare Log Cabin is a totally renovated 1930s cabin. We have done our best to preserve the homespun charm and appeal of this delightful cabin by restoring all of the woodwork and furnishing it with many of our family's vintage decorations and art. You will be reminded of a time when families fled the hot city to their northern retreats, not only for the fresh air, rest and relaxation, but to spend quality family time- a true escape!

That said, all upholstered furniture, carpets, beds/bedding, bathrooms and fixtures, kitchen, appliances and wood stove new in 2010!

The Spare Log Cabin was featured in Cabin Life Magazine's October, 2011 issue.

Experience a true Door County vacation and make memories that will last a lifetime!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2009

About: We now live in St. Louis, Missouri, but Phil is originally from Moberly, Missouri and Alison is from Oyster Bay, New York. Phil practices law in Illinois, Missouri and Wisconsin. Our family's hobbies include boating, hiking and bicycling. Alison likes to cook, sew and do just about any craft project. Both girls run cross country in high school. Lizzy plays clarinet in the marching band and Perry plays the mandolin. Our family loves Door County more than any place in the world, and spends as much time here as our schedules will allow!

Why Ephraim, WI, USA:
Ephraim is a wonderful location in Door County because, not only is it beautiful, it is centrally located to everything we like to do! We like our privacy and our cabin is tucked deep in the woods and very quiet. However, everything you need is within a mile or two. We have kept the cabin's rustic charm, but added most modern conveniences.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The Spare Log Cabin is one of the few remaining mail-order 'kit' cabins in the county. It has been on this property since the 1930s and is the oldest structure on the road. If you look closely, you can see chalk numbers on some of the ceiling timbers.
