What an quiet and elegant retreat in the midst of downtown Ephraim and enjoy views of the bay. The rooms were spacious and clean; the bed was super comfy; the property was well maintained. To a person, the staff was welcoming and helpful. Simply wonderful.

What a glorious getaway!! The location, wonderful staff, amenities all we do great. We loved the Mayflower room and the beautiful porch view of flowers and the Bay. (A New England feel). Restaurants, galleries etc were within walking distance. We also enjoyed a play at nearby out door theater. Very rememberable time!

The setting was wonderful; location ideal. Breakfast on the front porch was so memorable. Room was comfortable and charming. Amenities were well thought out...even a shower cap and nail file. Only thing lacking in room was a full length mirror, but so minor a detail in the overall package that we hesitated to mention it. We did, only so you would know we are real and sincere in our comments. The staff couldn't do enough for us, and the owner was friendly and more than obliging. That would be our choice to stay at should we make another trip to Door County. In fact, if we couldn't stay there we probably wouldn't go back because staying any where else would be a disappointment.
