Ephraim House Rental Photos and Description

surrounded by woods and wildlife, you are in very close proximity to the town

This recently restored (2012) unique, character filled cottage estate from a bygone era is set high atop a bluff and features a terrific water view over Little Sister Bay. Though surrounded by woods and wildlife, you are in very close proximity to the town centers of Ephraim and Sister Bay as well as to Peninsula State Park. Exterior features include an arched porte cochere, a lookout tower, and a sweeping stone garden wall leading to a peaceful grotto. The great room and fireplace features beautiful, original stonework. Other amenities include a new kitchen, four bedrooms (one of which was used as the nanny’s bedroom and has a separate entrance door from the lower level and its own private full bath), three and a half baths, and a large dining room with fireplace. Three acres all to yourself provide plenty of space to gather and enjoy this spectacular piece of Door County.

Due to the rough texture of the interior and exterior stonework, this house is not recommended for families with toddlers.

My wife and I stayed here with our family for our 40th anniversary and absolutely loved the home and property. The character, accommodations and cleanliness of the house made for an unforgettable stay. This is perfect for a large family or group. The views from outside were beautiful. This home is highly recommended and we would definitely stay here again. We hated to leave.

The Sanctuary is even better than the photos. Excellent amenities. Spotless interior and exterior. Comfortable beds. State-of-the-art kitchen. We will recommend this to our friends and hope to return in 2016.

I stayed at this beautiful place for the first time with my 3 sisters, daughter, and mother and this will definitely not be the last! We have been coming to Door County every year for 30 years and stayed at several different houses, resorts, etc. and this was by far the most beautiful and quiet. We felt like we were stepping back into time when we drove down the driveway to the house! Beautiful house, bedrooms, all the beds were absolutely comfortable, bathrooms in every room. The old pump house was such a treat to sit up there with your table and chairs and have your wine and cheese or just to relax! If you want peace and quiet, this is the place to be. We will definitely be back next year!!!
