The picturesque Village of Ephraim is nestled in the heart of the Door County Peninsula. Settled in 1853 by Norwegian Moravians on the tranquil shores of Eagle Harbor, Ephraim takes pride in its Scandinavian roots. Ephraim’s rich heritage has been carefully preserved in more than 30 historical sites throughout the village, 11 on the National Register of Historic Places. Step into the past by taking a guided/self-guided historic walking tour or visiting a village museum.
Ephraim has the most accessible shoreline of all the Door County communities. Explore Eagle Harbor from a Jet Ski, kayak or paddle board. Rent a family-size pontoon boat or enjoy the panoramic view of Ephraim and nearby Peninsula State Park on a sailboat.
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.
Whether your stay is for a day, week, month, or longer, Ephraim offers a full range of accommodations from modestly priced cottages to elegant inns, and everything in-between. Spring, summer, fall, and winter – in every season there is a reason to visit Ephraim!
