Stay in our family owned, 1-3 bedroom vintage cottages equipped with a full kitchen, full bath, and a fireplace or wood stove (except in two cottages). Each cottage has a distinct personality and is decorated (Door County cherries, fishing, lighthouses, the beach, etc) to reflect that distinct personality. The entire property is situated in a private, comfortable and safe setting. 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.

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.

Your kind review and kind words made our day. It's easy to be a great host when our guests are as amazing as you folks were. So happy you found the painted rock and were able to take it with you back home to hide in your hometown. We welcome you back any time!

This was a great place to stay. Very clean and comfortable. Very dog friendly as well! We had a total of 3 cottages and everything was extremely well maintained. Nice fire pit and plenty of chairs. In a great location as you can walk to the beach!

Our third stay here was excellent as usual! Our family of 5 and our dog stayed in Meadow View 2. It’s plenty of space for all of us and is SO clean! We enjoyed the games available in the cottage when it rained. And really enjoyed the outside areas - hammocks, badminton, bags, swing set and fire pit. The location is perfect - right across from the public beach. It’s fun to be able to walk to places in town too! The Larson’s are wonderful hosts and we can’t wait to come again next summer!!

Oh Wow! Thank you so much for a great comprehensive review of what we have to offer guests that stay with us. Yea. Rainy days can be a bummer but family game time is a great way to spend it, especially in front of the big picture window watching the rain fall. We are grateful you mentioned how clean our cottage was. We work very hard to get that compliment. And YES! Next Summer! See you then.

My husband and I spent 3 nights in the Wee One cabin. It was so nice and clean. The front screened in porch was very inviting. Easy access to all the little towns surrounding Ephraim. There is lots to do. The beach was right across the highway. Grill & firepit we’re right by our cabin. The second day we mostly stayed around the cabin and sat in the Adirondack chairs under a big shade tree. We were sung to by a variety of birds. So relaxing. I would give this resort 5 out of 5 stars. Thank you, Ruann & Daryl.

The birds!!! You mentioned the birds!!! Thank you Debbie. You definitely scored staying in the Wee One with the screened porch. Talk about the best way to start the day with a cup of coffee in comfy deck chairs. The shade tree is a bonus and we look forward to planting another one where the big red flower pot sits. We are so happy that you both were happy. Brings us joy!

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.

My wife and I have been coming to Door County for thirteen years and this was our first year staying at Ephraim Village Cottages. Sorry all 13 weren't spent there. It was like been at home but without our daily troubles, trials and whatever the day brings. Simply, charming and relaxing.

Stayed in cozy brook north for a weekend trip with our dog - everything was wonderful! Cottage was super clean, good wifi, had a grill just for our unit and all the basics we needed. They even provided couch covers to protect the couches and a little treat for our dog, which was appreciated. The location is fantastic and just a short walk to the beach and right in downtown Ephraim. We didn’t use the fire pit or other yard games but from what we could see, the fire pit looked awesome! We would def stay again when in DC!

Thanks Jacqueline for your wonderful review of our cottage property. We hope you will stay again when you are in Door County. Bummer you didn't get a chance to utilize our yard "fun" but next time...yes? We hope to expand our offerings in the future. Usually takes a guest saying, "hey, do you have this? or could you get this"? Always looking for more ways to make our 3 acre property an even more comfortable place to stay for guests and their pups! Oh, the treats were from Stove Dog in Sturgeon Bay. We go all out bougie for the pups too!

What can I say. We’ve been staying in this cottage and her sisters since Darl bought it….since darl managed it….since his parents owned it. Before that my wife’s family had stayed with them since the 1960s. They’ve been a virtual member of our family through happiness and sadness. Daryl and Ruann have hearts as big as his parents and keep a wonderful range of cottages. Clean tidy well appointed and well decorated (thank you R). Can’t wait to come back

My family and I had a wonderful week in Door County and our time there was enhanced by our stay in the Bayview cottage. The cottage was clean, well-appointed and inviting. We enjoyed just relaxing there after our numerous outdoor family activities. It was a pleasure to be able to bring our beloved dog as well. The cottages have a nice, off-the-beaten-path feel while being so close to Hwy 42. It is ideally situated on the peninsula to points north and south. This was our second stay in the cottages, and as avid smartphone and internet users, we noted the increased WiFi power from the year before. You and your family will undoubtedly have a pleasant and comfortable experience at Ephraim Village Cottages!
