Spectacular View of Ephraim

The picturesque village of Ephraim is nestled in the heart of the Door County peninsula. Settled in 1853 by Norwegian Moravias on the tranquil shores of Eagle Harbor, Ephraim is one of Door County’s finest treasures. Ephraim’s rich heritage has been carefully preserved in more than 30 historical sites throughout the village. You can step into the past by taking a Historical Walking Tour or visiting one of the village museums.

Ephraim has the most accessible shoreline of all Door County communities. There is something for everyone along the waterfront. Adventurous types can explore Eagle Harbor from a jet ski, a kayak, or by para-sail high above the Bay. Rent a family-sized pontoon boat or enjoy the panoramic view of Ephraim and nearby Peninsula State Park on a sailboat tour. Spend a day relaxing at the public sand beach. Finish the day with a picture perfect sunset!

Door County was cited in Midwest Living Magazine as “One of the best places to find a gift” and you will find the best selection the county has to offer in Ephraim! Within walking distance of most accommodations are shops and galleries set in century-old barns, rustic log cabins and vintage homes. Visitors will have an unforgettable shopping experience with the wide range of high quality items including clothing, jewelry, home furnishings, garden accessories, fine art and much more. Ephraim is home to more harbor-view dining than anywhere else on the Door peninsula. Your taste buds will surely be delighted by the variety of cuisine offered for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Be sure to try some of the classics, such as buttermilk pancakes and Belgian waffles smothered in Door County cherries, creative egg wraps, delicious homemade soups and sandwiches, Norwegian meatballs, or a traditional Door County fish boil. Don’t forget to save room for a world-famous ice cream cone at Wilson’s.

Whether your stay is for a day, a week, a month, or longer, Ephraim offers a full range of accommodations from modestly priced cottages to elegant hospitality inns, and everything else in between. Please check our web site for complete descriptions and details. Spring, summer, fall, and winter – in every season there is a reason to visit Ephraim!
