Lodgings at Pioneer Lane
Ranked #3 of 5 Ephraim B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 23, 2009

Hugh saved us. My family and I tried renting A Village Cottage in Egg Harbor because we thought we'd have more room in a cottage than an inn. The place was HORRIBLE! It was absolutely filthy and the owner of the cottage actually called me a nasty name when I tried to complain (see my review in Door County forums here on TripAdvisor.com).

So, we called Lodgings at Pioneer Lane at 9:00 p.m. to try and get two rooms for the next two days. We were desperate. Hugh Mulliken answered our prayers and booked us two beautiful suites at a great price. What a relief to be out of such a terrible place and into such a nice, clean, well appointed haven.

My husband and I stayed at the Lodgings once before and it was also a wonderful experience. We will definitely be back.

We stayed at the Lodgings in late October to take in the fall colors. We were blown away as soon as we walked into the Sea Chest room. It is easily the largest and most well-appointed suite of rooms I've seen. The clean, modern decor, water view and thoughtful amenities made this a delightful place to unwind for a couple of days. The location is uniquely central yet private and Ephraim afforded us the perfect base of operations to explore a good deal of the peninsula. Alicia and Hugh, the owners, are sweethearts! They had a lot of great suggestions for shopping, dining and sightseeing. I would definitely stay at the Lodgings again.

A great location in the heart of door county, all attractions are minutes away. The
themed rooms are all tastefully done and set up nicely with bath/shower, makeup
mirror/sink, whirlpool, kitchenette, some with separate bedroom or living room. Go
to website to tour each room, upper or lower level available, different views or
porches with some rooms. The owners are available if you need them and very
gracious. All rooms are non smoking. We keep coming back each year for the fall
colors and are not tempted to try any where else. Book early for the best rooms,
the website is super easy to check for a specific date and room availability.

This place is SO cute and cozy! This is the second time we have stayed here and it will not be the last! We just got married this weekend in Baileys Harbor. Our chapel and our reception were both in Baileys Harbor. Our guests stayed in Baileys Harbor as well. We love The Lodings so much we were willing to travel across town in the early morning hours after our reception just to stay here. We have also toured the place so we have seen all of the rooms. They are all "old" yet "new" looking. We can't get enough! The pricing is extremely reasonable as well. If you have any questions the owners are always there or available by phone. There are cute porches and pretty views as well. It is in walking distance of resaurants and the lake. I cant wait to stay here again! Take a look at the pictures I posted! Have fun!

The lodgings are in a great location. The accomodations were roomy, comfortable, and contemporary. We found the owner Hu to be a valuable resource. He was knowledgeable about restaurants and hiking trails. We never would have found the hiking trails on our own and the sunset viewing he recommended was spectacular. We used the properties bikes to explore the area. The kitchenette area of the gift box suite was a welcome suprise. We were very comfortable there and would recommend it to anyone.

My husband and I stayed in The Cabin Room at Lodgings at Pioneer Lane. Each room has its own theme. Ours was inspired by the Adirondack-camp style. It had a king-sized hickory bed, a sitting area with a love seat, TV, and fireplace. There was also a kitchenette, whirlpool tub, and private balcony. We couldn't have asked for anything more. It was comfortable and relaxing. We had such a wonderful time. Some of the rooms even have a view of the water. If you are able to, catch a sunset in Ephraim. They are amazing! The owners are friendly and helpful; they directed us to a wonderful, little Italian restaurant off the beaten path. There are many tasty places nearby to get a bite to eat, including Wilson's Ice Cream Parlor. Lodgings at Pioneer Lane is located, I would say, in the heart of Ephraim, almost behind Wilson's. There's no where else in Door County I would rather stay.

This place really did feel like a home away from home. It's has every little thing you might need and plenty of extra thoughtful things. I loved the decorations in the rooms.
The bed and linens were incredible. The owners Hugh and Alicia were wonderful. They gave you your privacy, but also were right there when you needed them. We borrowed the mountain bikes and had a fabulous time biking around Penninsula State Park and the town. Ephraim is very nicely located and the Lodgins are set behind the street so they are very private, but also close to great restaurants and the water. Chef's Hat was awesome for breakfast. We would definitely stay at the Lodgings at Pioneer Lane again!!
