We have been to Door County many times but this was our first stay at Ephraim Shores Motel. The rooms are immaculate and the views of the lake are breathtaking. We went to their lake front area, which is great since it is their own private beach area. There is supposed to be a beach area as well, however, there... More

We keep going back to this gem year after year. The views are fantastic of Eagle Harbor, and they have their own pier and beach, with plenty of space for lounging above beach to watch the activity in the harbor. Rooms are nice. Indoor pool and hot tub are great.

We stayed in Room #101 (King) for 4 weeknights - our friends were in the adjacent Room #103. Room #101 is a little larger - with a couch and table for 4 - we wanted more room to play cards at the end of each night (but we were always too tired to do that). There was a good-sized fridge... More

A very nice room with two queen beds, small kitchenette. Ephraim Shores is across the street from the water but a lovely view, private beach for guests of the hotel. A storm door in the room leads directly to a small patio adjacent to the room. All of the rooms facing the water have a door that leads to that... More

We have been coming to Dior County for 10-12 years and have stayed at many hotels. This hotel was the cleanest and friendliest. Great view!! Get a room facing the bay! It's worth the few extra dollars! We had a first floor view and it was perfect. Only complaint is the coffee is weak. Not much to complain about. We... More

We loved our stay at Ephraim Shores. Very nice rooms. The restaurant offers a complete breakfast menu and was very good. It is in a great location. Very easy to walk around town. They have a nice area across the street from the hotel with comfortable sun chairs right on the bay.

This hotel was exactly what my girlfriend and I were looking for - a decent, clean room with an excellent location. The room and hotel itself was nothing too special, but it was very clean and the staff was friendly.
