We headed up to Door County for a quick weekend get away and stopped in at this lovely little motel on arrival. We were warmly welcomed and given keys to our requested king suite (with whirlpool) balcony room overlooking the harbor. A great rate as it was off season. Although the room might seem a bit outdated on first glance, we quickly realized it had everything we needed for a great stay -- refrigerator, whirlpool, small "bar" area with microwave and sink, nice bathroom with great shampoo/soap/lotion and a wonderful view of the harbor. We didn't use the indoor pool, but it looked very nice and included a small game room. Would highly recommend!

We have been staying here for many years. The staff is wonderful, always helpful and they remember us every year. The place is very well maintained. The upstairs restaurant is great, always great food and great service.

We have stayed at the Ephraim Shores a number of times over the years, and it is always wonderful to return! Our view of the harbor from our first floor Unit # 109 was super. The staff is always friendly, the rates are reasonable, and the attached restaurant is the way to go. We can't wait to return!

Room Tip: Our room was described as a "S.H. 1 QUEEN FIRST" and had a table with two chairs, a kitche...

the hotel was very warm, comfortable and cozy. The view and location were great, directly across from the water. I will definitely stay here again. The trees still held their leaves and was gorgeous. All the shops were still open and we had a great time.

The reasons we love Ephraim Shores are many. Location, cleanliness, friendliness, view, and accessibility to everything around. We can go to the busier towns, but love coming "home" to Ephraim! And...fyi....like the way the blanket is wrapped in the sheets and love the new lounge chair in the room!

Room Tip: We love to be on the bay side!

Looking for a one night stay on a weekend in Door County during early fall is almost impossible, but we found this great place. Ask for a 2nd floor room for a better view, but we were on the first floor and it was still nice. Rooms included a kitchen and living room with an actual comfortable pull out couch-- we'll at least as comfortable as they can be. Cable tv included, no wifi but my phone was able to get 3G so it was ok. Very clean rooms, good value. Don't overlook the restaurant upstairs--so good!

Wanted to have a get away anniversary weekend and looked on the internet for places that would be available and saw this one. We requested a room with a view and boy did we get one. We had a king-size suite with a 2-person jacuzzi tub with windows that looked directly out on to Eagle Harbor so our first view when getting up was of the beautiful blue skies. Across the street were lots of lounge chairs and deck chairs so that we could either sun or sit under the shade of the big trees. The area was cleaned each morning and the chairs were wiped down.

The staff was extremely helpful and accommodating. Everyone you encountered had a big smile, hello and how are you today. You could tell that it was a family run business.

We were on the first floor and our ONLY disappointment came on the last night when the people above us began running their jacuzzi at 12:30 a.m. The plumbing pipes rattled/screeched the entire time the tub was filling which woke us up then we could hear the motor of the tub while they used it then when they emptied the tub.

I'd go again in a NY minute but next time will request a second story room!

Room Tip: Second story with view of the bay. Would not accept a room facing toward the back. Sizes of the ro...
