“Overpriced”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2013

As we decide to spend the night in Ephraim we found this beautiful place. We asked for 2 queen beds with view after checking in we go to dinner, after dinner we went to our room to find out it had king bed & pullout couch bed not what we wanted!! We stuck it out and stayed there. The hotel is spacious but over priced. We enjoyed sitting on the porch watching the sun set.

You're paying for the perfect location, view, and the pool.The outdoor hot tub was amazing. When I booked I asked if this was a romantic place, and she said it was. I would describe it more like family friendly. Ephraim is a dry town, which is great for families. We stayed in a bigger Royal suite on the end: whirlpool, fireplace, nice kitchen, clean. It faced the pool, so there were kids screaming, running back & forth, kinda what we were trying to get away from. The only side window faced the area where they have the daily fish boils: loud & smoky. The Internet was s-l-o-w but we couldn't get a signal in Door County at all, so it was better than nothing. (BTW, I would recommend writing all your places down on paper because I was not prepared for the no signal in D. County)
I thought the place was very overpriced. I've paid less for much nicer places, in Hawaii, on the ocean!

My husband and I just returned from a 2 night stay at the Edgewater. It is a beautiful facility, immaculately clean, and beautifully decorated. The staff is very pleasant and helpful. Our room was spacious, and well designed. The grounds are lovely, and we were lucky in that the weather was warm enough to use the pool. Make sure to see a sunset.
There are several restaurants within walking distance,but make sure to take in the fish boil at the onsite Post Office Restaurant. You get a 10% discount there with your stay. The food there is fantastic.

This was our second visit to the Edgewater Resort and we were not disappointed. our second story, two room suites boasted a king bed, in-room jacuzzi, and two-way fireplace along with a frig, dishwasher and stove.
The sunsets from our balcony are remarkable and easily viewed in the wicker chairs provided. A great place to stay in Door County, right across the street from Eagle Harbor in the heart of Ephraim, WI.

Excellent resort for a couple's weekend getaway. Great view of the Bay. Pool and hot tub, both perfect. Room had all the necessities and a very comfortable stay. Location is excellent in order to reach any part of Door County above Egg Harbor. We will be staying here again in the future and making sure we have a water view. Remember that Ephraim is a dry town, so pack alcohol accordingly.

Room Tip: 1st floor, north side with water view are excellent for water views and pool/hot tub access

My husband and I stayed at the Edgewater for our 'mini-moon' to Door County for 3 nights after our wedding. We rented a waterfront suite on the third floor which was incredible (#301). The room had a good sized living area with a TV and fireplace as well as a kitchenette with everything you'd need. The bedroom had a king-size bed with a whirlpool and big bathroom. The semi-private balcony was lovely to walk out on in the morning or during sunset. The front desk staff was friendly and gave us great recommendations for restaurants in the area. Our only criticism would be that the area surrounding is quite dull after labor day. As one local described it, it's either newlyweds or the nearly dead. For this reason, there wasn't much open or going on in Ephraim or even Fish Creek and Egg Harbor after 4pm. Some places were even closed for the year. That all being said, the resort was lovely and we would highly recommend it for all ages.

Hello. The Edgewater has a great pool, hot tub and sauna. For kids this hotel is fantastic. We rented rooms with a fridge, stove, microwave, dishwasher and Jacuzzi bath. The on site restaurant is super convenient and excellent for all meals especially the fish boil. Have fun!
