My wife and I take an annual getaway to Door County and have tried a number of hotels and resorts. This by far is among the best we have been to. What really sets this apart is the value you get for your money. The Gift Box room we stayed in was a very nice size and had all the amenities we could ask for. The hotel is centrally located so you can walk just about anywhere you like within Ephraim. We even took a Horse Carriage ride one evening which was amazing. We caught the sunset over the bay just as the ride was coming to an end.
There is also an amazing little cafe right down the street from the hotel that serves excellent breakfast and desserts. Wilson's is also close by for lunch or an ice cream treat.
The owners are around during the day and make a point to come and visit when you are heading out or coming back in. They go out of there way to make sure you know where you are going and what is available in the area. They really make the experience wonderful.
I have to admit when I found this hotel online, I was a bit nervous. It almost seemed to good to be true especially for the price. We also liked the fact that there was no minimum stay required. Most resorts during the busy season seem to require a 3 night stay when you include a weekend day.
We found that the roads in Ephraim are not marked very well, but we managed to find the hotel just fine. Also, the whole process of getting your room key out of the lock box was a little confusing since it was our first time.
We have found our new little hot spot for vacationing in Door County. Can't wait to try a different room next time.
