“Great Time in Ephraim, Wisconsin”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

The Edwater Resort is a wonderful, friendly place to step back and rest. We loved the accomodations, the staff and the area. Everyone was friend and everything was extremely clean. The area is so friendly and welcoming. I love the slow pacedness of the area and will be going back.

Room Tip: We loved the third floor because of the view. Watching the sunset and the sunrise was wonderful. I...

Being in hospitality and working at a hotel I am critic on everything from start to finish, but no complaints here! So this was our first time to Door County and I did a lot of research before we left. I decided to go wih Edgewater Resort because of the lovely suites they had. The pictures are exactly what you get, no phony business here. I called in advance because we were going to be coming in really late (make sure you do this if you plan on arriving later) so they left our key in a special place for us. Upon arrival we were in awe of our room, exactly what we wanted. Cozy, spacious, romantic and inviting. Our balcony over looked the lake which was to die for. Ephraim is a "dry" city so make sure to stop and grab a bottle of wine on your way to the hotel because you won't be able to go down to the local pub for a drink. Not a big deal to us because we knew we would be visiting all the towns so there would be plenty of wine to go around. The next day we met the staff, very knowledgeable and very friendly. Very quiet at night so you can relax outside or in your room with the windows open and enjoy the peacefulness of mother nature. It is expensive to stay here but we got a special they had going on stay 2 nights get the 3rd free so we took full advantage of that deal. We will be back next year to door county for sure because of how much fun we had just us and no kids. Great job Edgewater Resort, your doing it right!

Room Tip: Highly recommend the corner suites!

Door County in the winter is just as beautiful as the warmer months. Our stay at the Edgewater Resort was everything we were looking for and more. We relaxed and forgot about everyday life for a few wonderful days!

Room Tip: Ask for the Honeymoon Suite.

We spent New Years at the Edgewater. This is our third time at the Edgewater. It's a nice, clean hotel. Location is perfect. We had a balcony overlooking the frozen bay. It was
too bad we couldn't take advantage of it. The view was still great with large balconies. We've stayed in their suites and their general rooms. Both are very nice. The beds are very comfortable. The only thing they don't have is an ice machine if you need ice if you are in their general rooms.
I would recommend the Edgewater, you can't go wrong.

Room Tip: We stayed in room #204 this time. Great view.

The suite was fantastic! It had everything we needed for a winter getaway. Door county was in the off season which was great. It was quiet and there was not a lot of people there. We had reservations at The Inn at Kristofers for New Years Eve and the food was very very good. Additionally, we had a massage at The Spa which was wonderful as well. The suites have a fireplace and whirlpool tub, so it was a very relaxing week.

Room Tip: The suites have a full kitchen so you can bring smacks, etc. Additionally, there is a Piggly Wiggl...

The rooms were beautiful. Whirlpool nice shower full kitchen, the beds were not the comfiest though, I got a groupin so our stay was majorly discounted. The regular rate is quite expensive so I would wait for a deal. The staff was really friendly and the entire resort was beautiful and well kept. Overall, was a really nice stay.

I am almost afraid to write this review. Edgewater Resort is such a wonderful retreat that I don't want it to become over popular and not be able to reserve a few nights when we visit. We stay in a suite on the 3rd floor that has a private balcony and a spectacular view of the harbor. As mentioned by someone else, there are a few stairs to climb to get to this suite, but we find it worth it, even for the extra cost. The suite provides plenty of room: a large living area with fireplace, small but ample kitchen with usual utensils, big bedroom with whirlpool and plenty of room in the bathroom for two to use. The room is clean and the front desk has always been responsive to our questions. One reviewer used the word cozy, I would have to agree. We had a great time, Ephraim is in the middle of activities in upper Door County and we could not have found a better place.

Room Tip: Definitely chose a room in the main building. Both the second floor and third floor have balconies w...
