We spent the weekend and really enjoyed the room and the staff. The whole place was well maintained. The room was clean and spacious, nice outside area to sit and enjoy the morning or evening. That is if you didn't want to walk across the road and sit on the shoreline. We also enjoyed the whirlpool. The staff was friendly... More

Great location to go anywhere in Door County. Staff is friendly and helpful. We stayed Sun - Thurs night two weeks after Labor Day so all adult crowd. Very quiet all the time. We used the pool and spa once and were the only ones there. This is an older property and the rooms look a bit dated. BUT -... More

We just returned from a 5 day stay at the Ephraim Shores. We go every year actually. Why? Because it is a great place to stay. It is centrally located in Door County. The people are so nice and responsive to your needs. They have lounge chairs exclusively for their guests right on the water - so beautiful and so... More

The people are exceptional, very friendly, the resort is neat and clean with refrigerators and microwaves in each room. The grounds are also beautifully landscaped with chairs and lounge chairs to enjoy as well as beach side seating. Don't miss the fabulous... More

While it is called a resort, it is an older two story motel. Rooms are very clean and well maintained. In door pool had a very strong smell of chlorine. Location is excellent, directly across the road from the bay, which is great for viewing the sunsets and in the geographic center of the County in terms of points of... More

The motel itself is nothing special at all. Small dark cramped rooms, the ceiling tiles were coming off a little, smelled damp and musty. Granted, we had a room that looked out over the parking lot. Next time I would get a lake view room I guess for more light and fresh air. BUT, the location is awesome. Right across... More

This our 11th year coming to Door County. This is the 9th time we've stayed here on our trip. The staff is always friendly and rooms are very, very clean. We've already made our reservations for 2017.

We spent a night here and we were very impressed for the price. $20 extra for the lake view was worth it, the balcony with chairs made it even better. Our room had a refrigerator, a little sink and counter space, very clean bathroom, nice big TV, clean and comfy beds. Pool, hot tub, and exercise room we did not... More

Very clean, new bedding, new carpet, freshly painted rooms. View of the lake and private deck to sit on. We didn't use the pool,but it looked very clean. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Walking distance to Chef's Top Hat and a couple of shops.
