Family owned and operated for three generations. Stay in our one, two or three bedroom fully equipped cottages located on 3 acres in stunningly beautiful but very quiet Ephraim in the heart of Door County, Wisconsin. Listen to the birds sing every morning from your front deck while your fur babies or your children romp around our big, safe yard and play structure. Walk across the street to the beach, or to shops and restaurants in downtown Ephraim. Cuddle up to a warm fire with a good book on a rainy or chilly day. And as the day winds down, join everyone out at the fire pit for s’mores while enjoying a favorite beverage and gazing at the stars shining bright in the night sky. We invite you to step back to a simpler time where people focus on each other and everyone takes home memories as a vacation souvenir. We look forward to meeting you and hosting you as our guests.

Having visited Door County in 2019 for the Sister Bay Fall Festival, we couldn’t wait to return and to again stay at Ephraim Village Cottages! Of course the Coronavirus pandemic changed the tune of our trip, but we were even more excited about the ability to escape for a weekend trip after so many months of staying at home. Daryl is such an excellent and accommodating owner and truly makes guests feel like family during their stay. We visited with another couple and booked both the Cozy Brook cottages (north and south) which allowed us our own space but have an adjoining door to allow for time spent together. The cottages are quaint and perfectly clean, and we felt very comfortable and safe even despite the ongoing pandemic. And we loved the fireplace (with plenty of firewood provided), which made the cottage feel so cozy at night! Tip: As stated on the website, do be sure to bring your own towels, both kitchen and bath, as these are not provided.
Fortunately for us, there were numerous opportunities for socially-distanced outdoor adventures (so many beautiful state and county parks with incredible Fall colors) within a 15-20 minute drive of EVC, and many restaurants still offered outdoor dining despite the lower temperatures this time of year. We had a wonderful, safe, and relaxing vacation and we are already looking forward to returning to Ephraim Village Cottages again next year! Thank you, Daryl and Ruann!

Hi Rachel and THANKS for a very very nice review! So happy that you and your friends could enjoy the adjoining cottages. We are glad when our guests utilize the fireplaces because it adds an ambiance to the stay as well as provide warmth. We have a few upgrades in the works in 2021. Our plan is to put king size beds in both the Cozy Brook North and South cottages which will most definitely be a perk for many of our guests. Thank you for mentioning the bath towels and such. Our confirmations share that information with all our guests so we encourage everyone to read their confirmations. Hope to see you in 2021!

Another beyond awesome family vacation here! We visited twice last year, the second time just 10 months ago. Was so nice then, and now with all the updates the owners have done in just these last several months, we were amazed! We literally had all the creature comforts at our finger tips in a clean, beautiful setting with remarkable views. And, of course, owners Daryl and Ruann cheerfully took a few minutes to chat about it despite their busy schedules in keeping all of their guests happy. They always make us feel like family when we stay here. Such a RARE find in today's crazy world!!! Thank you Daryl and Ruann from the bottom of our hearts for your outstanding hospitality!!!

Thank you Annj6795 for the amazing review. We appreciate your comment about the updates we've made to a number of our cottages. We've worked hard to bring more comforts to our guests and we continue to improve the entire property. We are very grateful for guests like your family, Ann, and so happy that you choose to stay with us. Hopefully next time we have more time to chat. The first half of the season does keep us hopping.

Ephraim Village Cottages is a wonderful place to stay! Right off the main drag on the South end of Ephraim, you are within walking distance to the Beach! The land is manicured nicely, cabins range in size from small to large, each cabin has ample outdoor seating for guests, including deck furniture, lawn furniture, and a picnic table. Personal Grill with all the necessary accessories. The main lawn also features a beautiful and large firepit space, again all equipment provided! There is also a playground, which is a big hit for younger kids. Cabins are well maintained; clean with updated decor, many extra niceties are included. The owners are incredibly communicative and you can tell they really care about their property and their guests. Highly recommend, especially for groups who want to stay together in one location!

Ephraim Village Cottages and our host Ruann we're just wonderful. We've been to Door County many times but this was our first time at EVC, and we will most certainly be back. Our cottage was clean and cozy and our host Ruann couldn't have been friendlier and more accommodating.The cabin also has a fully functioning kitchen with stove, microwave, and full size fridge with dinner ware and cooking pots. The lake is right across the street and the property itself has a cool little creek, that my six year old loved. Also Ruann told us about little rocks with "Door County Rocks" on them hidden throughout the property for kids to take. Ephraim is our favorite town in Door County and now Ephraim Village Cottages is not now our go to destination home away from home.

Have been coming to Door County for over 26 years and this is our second stay at Ephraim Village Cottages this year! Will not stay anywhere else this is our new favorite place! Owners Daryl and Ruann are like long time friends you have known since childhood, they really know what Hospitality means and their personalities and Cottages reflect it! It's like your little home away from home and they are spotless! You feel like you've gone back in time to a simpler time where you can relax and enjoy the outdoors, step across the street to the beach, and maybe even meet new friends around the shared fire pit. But there are just enough modern touches including WiFi and televisions should you want that. Oh and did I mention the owners surprised us with a bottle of Door County wine to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary!?? Thoughtfulness like this is rare these days especially during a pandemic, you can actually relax and have fun here. So whether you rent a larger Cottage to invite your whole family or a quaint romantic getaway for two, you won't be disappointed, highly highly recommend!

My friend and daughter and myself stayed in the Cedars cottage for a week and found it very comfortable, with a large living area and kitchen and an enclosed utility room that accommodated all our boxes, luggage, coolers and purchases. We wanted for nothing during our stay. We grilled one night and on our last night roasted S'mores. Unfortunately the cottages were not occupied during the week with EVERYONE arriving the night before we departed so we didn't get to visit and make new friends! We took advantage one day of the picnic tables but never got to relax in the hammocks. We were on the go every day so did not spend a great deal of time at the resort. The location is ideally located in a central part of the Door so we often went in one direction in the morning and a different one in the afternoon. The only problem we had was a non-flushing toilet and that was corrected the next morning. The toilet is on their list of items to replace. The only challenge we had during our stay was the rather large step up into the cottage from the porch but that is because two of us had either back or leg problems. An elderly aunt also found it difficult to step up without help when she visited. This is an issue that might be addressed by the owners sometime in the future but can wait since it isn't a major issue. The owners are delightful and engaging and we highly recommend the resort.

Thank you so much for this review that we are a bit late to the game responding to. Your review means so very much to us. What a wonderful, comprehensive review of your cottage and your stay. The Cedars cottage received a new ADA height toilet in 2024 which we know our guests will appreciate. More updates for this beauty in years to come.

3 of us and my dog stayed in Meadowview 2 this year and Meadowview 3 last year. The owners are so friendly and accommodating. I am finding it increasingly difficult to get away with my dog and we were welcomed here at Ephraim Village Cottages. They provided a cover for the couch, sheets to cover the blankets on the beds and dog treats too! We love the cottages because they are off the main road but just a short walk to the lake. The cottages are clean and comfortable, and the grounds are sprayed to eliminate mosquitos and tics so any outdoor activity can be better enjoyed. We can't wait to come back again!

Hi Jkz2Lady - thanks for the great comprehensive review. We love it when guests provide details about our cottage, our hospitality and the comfort of their stay. Quickly clarifying that we do not allow any pets on our beds. The sheets were to put on the livingroom furniture that was not already covered. We have placards in the cottage that state we do not allow any pets on our beds.

We have been staying at Ephraim Village Cottages for 25+ years and keep coming back. It is in the perfect location for walking around Ephraim and centrally located in DC. It is very family friendly , and one of the few places that welcome dogs. The cottages are comfortable. This is not a fancy place; that is not why we choose to stay here. It is quiet, clean and comfortable. Daryl is a great host. THere is a great firepit for sitting around the fire at night. PLay equipet for the kids.
Perfect for families especially if you will have multiple family groups; the cottages accommodate that very well. THey are also doing a nice job with Covid cleaning practices.

Thank you Barbara for your review of our cottages. We appreciate it so much, especially mentioning our COVID cleaning practices. We purchased this resort in March 2020 and we are gradually updating the interiors while performing maintenance on the exteriors to get the property up to an even higher standard. So when you return next year you can expect even more updates. The cottage you stayed in is getting brand new living room furniture this fall which is very exciting. See you next year!

The cottage we stayed at was super cozy and everything worked well. The location is just a short walk to downtown Ephraim and the waters of Lake Michigan. Daryl was the best airbnb host I have had yet. He went out of his way and above and beyond my expectations to ensure we had a fun weekend. Would highly recommend staying at the Ephraim village cottages and I will be returning soon!
