There is an indoor pool and whirlpool. Rooms are comfortable, Staff very friendly. Nice view of Lake Michigan, although weather was a bit cold and rainy that weekend. Walking distance to a few restaurants. Would definitely stay again!

Although we were only here one night I would definitely recommend Ephraim Shores. Our room had a beautiful view and was extremely clean. The people working there are friendly and helpful. Nicely priced, too

Hello, The North Rear Spa room is a smaller room on the East side of the building away from the water. We do have a large sundeck that you can enjoy the view from though.
