My wife and 2 teenage daughters spent two nights at Ephraim Resort. It was spotless; the management was friendly and adept; and, the room was very spacious and reasonably priced. The indoor pool was large and comfortably warm, as was the jacuzzi. Both were clean and weren't overladen with chemicals like chlorine, that smell and dry your skin. There was a small exercise room and game room. We played a couple of games of pool. The location is excellent, right on the water with a large concrete patio at the water's edge. Nearby are terrific restaurants, including Chef's Hat, where we ate 3 meals; and Wilson's, which has the best ice cream in Door County. We were near Penninsula State Park, and spent time walking and driving that area. The Resort provides nice bicycles, for free, and we used them a couple of times, to ride the nearby hilly roads. The nightly room rate was very affodable, for the value received. We would definitely recommend this resort and we plan to return.

My first time to Door County and what I really had my heart set on was a room overlooking the water. My husband had been here before but left it up to me to choose where to stay.

We had a 2nd floor water view room and it was perfection. Exactly what I was hoping and more! The balcony was fantastic!
I don’t think I have ever stayed in a quieter hotel. Either all of the other guests were not noisy at all or the walls are super insulated! It was fantastic!
Super clean too!!

Perfect location. We drove to the other towns to eat, look around etc. but we loved being in a central location to come “home” to take a break and look at the water.
We were so impressed and happy that we booked again next year!! No need to look anywhere else!!

The Ephraim Shores Resort is located 5 minutes from Peninsula State Park and in easy driving distance to other Door County towns and recreational areas. There are plenty of places to eat nearby and the waterfront is right across the street. The staff was pleasant and the room was clean. The town of Ephraim was busy, but not as crowded as Sister Bay up the road. When we return to Door County we will stay at Ephraim Shores again

First time to Door County and I’m so glad we picked here to stay. Ephraim is right in the middle of all the quaint areas of Door County. This hotel/resort was perfect for us. Such a great location. Check in was quick and the staff was so so friendly. Our room was perfect! We stayed on the 2nd floor in a King room with a small kitchenette and a large sitting area. Our small balcony looked straight at the water. Enjoyed drinking coffee out there every morning. The room was large and super clean. The bed was comfortable and the linens were too. There is an indoor pool and a playground if you have small children. There is also a restaurant on site. Across the street is a reserved area for watching the sunsets. There are loungers and Adirondack chairs for relaxing in. Such a great place to watch the sun go down! We had a wonderful 5 days staying here and can’t wait to come back. Thank you, Ephraim Shores for your wonderful hospitality!! Well done!! 🤗

We recently spent a night at Ephraim Shores Resort after not having been there for +20 years. Joella at the front desk could not have been more pleasant or helpful, providing good answers to all of our questions. We had a bright, cheery, comfortable room with a sitting area, a great bed, a clean bathroom, and a deck overlooking Green Bay. During the evening our TV went out; Brenda, who was then at the front desk, immediately came to our room. She had the hotel's maintenance guru on the phone and in about three minutes she fixed the television. The hotel's setting and landscaping are great, within walking distance of several of the things we wanted to do and see. We will not wait another 20 years to return.

One of the best places we have stayed in. We come every year, if not twice to enjoy Door County. I Wished I had found this gem sooner. We were here for our anniversary for a weekend getaway, unfortunately we had an unexpected situation arise and had no choice but to leave early. The owners were gracious enough to understand our situation and work with us.
This place has to be as great as we think..here's why..just tried to book in March or April next year and they are already sold out.
Btw..if you ever want to see Door County in its prime, come in the spring. That's when you see it's soul. No crowds, easy living, meet the locals and enjoy life. Good times. I have been coming here for 20 years.
If you ever read bad reviews about Door County, they are right too. It's because they come from the wrong people, at the wrong time and with ungodly expectations. They have a fantasy and miss the dream.

We are always happy to stay at Ephraim Shores. We have spent decades visiting Door County. I can’t think of one bad experience with the staff or any employee. The rooms are immaculate, spacious and have been updated through the years. The location is perfect for walking around town and watching sunsets. Jolynn and Lana have wonderful hospitality skills. This hotel has made every effort during COVID to assure guest safety. Thank you Ephraim Shores for helping us “get out” during this uncertain time. When nothing seems to be the same, it was a comfort to stay at Ephraim Shores.

Great location with unobstructed view of the bay. Private "beach" is perfect place to relax and watch the sunset. Rooms are large and seem recently renovated. This will be our go-to place to stay in Door County.

Answer from Jolynn N

Hello, The North Rear Spa room is a smaller room on the East side of the building away from the water. We do have a large sundeck that you can enjoy the view from though.

Yes, views are great from first floor--and access on first floor is our first choice. All the lakeview first floor rooms open onto a large open-space grass yard, where there are lounge chairs and a few picnic tables. It is an excellent place to view sunsets or throw around a Frisbee; read or catch a sunny nap. Enjoy!
