More Information

Located toward the south end of Ephraim and within walking distance of the Peninsula State Golf Course, the cottages are removed from the congestion of the center of the Village, yet are less than a mile away from such spots as the library, Wilson’s, the Post Office, etc.

Guests enjoy the use of a private sand beach located directly across the street from the cottages. The sandy bottom slopes very gradually toward deeper water, creating a pleasant swimming area for all.

Both cottages have a microwave oven, gas range, refrigerator, the necessary cooking and serving equipment, TV (Cable), VCR, DVD and WIFI. No telephone service is available. Bedspreads, blankets and pillows are furnished. Although linens and towels are not generally provided they can be furnished for a modest fee with advance request. A baby crib and high chair is available upon prior notification. Charcoal kettle grills are provided.

Cats and dogs are allowed upon payment of a $30.00 per pet per occupancy period. Pet owners are advised that Ephraim ordinances require a dog be leashed when outside.

Rental and other charges are payable in full upon arrival and are subject to State and County Sales taxes and the Door Co. Tourism Zone Commission tax. When making a reservation, we request a deposit of 25% of the total rental amount. If a cancellation occurs, the deposit will be refunded if the reserved period is later entirely filled. The rental week runs from 3:00 p.m. Saturday to 10:00a.m. the next Saturday. We do rent for periods of less than a week in June, September and October (3-day minimum occupancy, however.)
