We were only in Door County for two nights so location was pretty important. Nestled between Fish Creek and Sister Bay this is a perfect place. We did dinners in Sister Bay, spent some time in Peninsula state park which is minutes away, enjoyed some vineyards etc. Everything with the property was great!

We are so happy to hear this! Thank you!

Very cute cabin in a great location, older feel, for the price $570/night I wish they had made some effort to have the cleaners come earlier as they were still there at 4pm check in after they couldn’t let us check in early as requested. Otherwise a nice stay.

Thank you for your feedback to us, Kari. During the peak season our teams are working hard between same day check outs and check ins to ensure the properties are ready. We are so happy to hear you had a great overall stay here!

My daughter and I stayed here for three nights in June 2023 and loved it. The cottage was clean and even though it's not very big, it had all the amenities we needed. The fold out bed in the living room was comfortable for my daughter and the bed in the bedroom was comfortable for me. The location can't be beat as it's only a short walk to the places like Wilson's and the Chef's Hat. For a cozy and comfortable stay close to everything in Ephraim, I highly recommend the Summer Cottage.

Thanks, Steve! We are so pleased to hear you had a great stay and we hope we can host you again sometime!

We stayed here in June 2023. Great location - walking to restaurants in Ephraim and convenient to drive to other locales in Door Co. Cabin is small but nice for 2 people and the bed was comfy. Would definitely recommend staying here.

Thank you, John, for all your feedback to us! We are so happy you had a good overall stay and hope we can host you again.

Clean, modern, well appointed, functional, efficient, pet friendly, in town and dangerously close to the Prince of Pierogi.Walk to all the Ephriam has to offer. View of the harbor. As advertised and pictured. Great communications from property. No worries, no problems.

Thank you so much, Phillip! Your kind feedback means so much to us and it was our pleasure to work with you. Hope we have a chance to host you again in the future sometime!

We had an awesome time in Door County and it started with this cute place! It was clean, well stocked, and close to places to visit in Ephriam. The treats and dog bowls left for our pup was also a great touch and made our stay feel like home! Would definitely stay here again!

My husband, my dog, and I stayed here for a weekend and loved it. It's small but the perfect size for the 3 of us and it's close by to everything we wanted to do. The only reason for 4 stars and not 5 is due to the fact that the rental did not have any coffee. On the rental listing, coffee is included as an amenity. There were 2 coffee makers and cream/sugar, but no coffee. I thought that maybe it was due to Covid, but since there was cream, sugar, and other spices, that can't really explain the reasoning and a lot of other rentals include single serve coffee. All in all, a great stay.

Overall nice, cute little cabin. Only disappointment was only one heavy weight blanket for two beds. There were two more summer weight blankets, but more is needed for fall visitors.

Cozy, clean, updated and close to shops and dining. Loved our stay and loved that our fur baby could also come along. Thank you, we'll be back!

I stayed here for a week. Perfect for one or a couple. functional little efficiency kitchen, stovetop but not oven. You can see the lake across the street and you're right in Ephraim. It's a really friendly little town and a nice place to stay. Comfy bed!
