The Door County peninsula, between Green Bay and Lake Michigan, is beloved for its 300 miles of beautiful shoreline, lighthouses, historic villages, and scenic nature parks. Stay at the historic waterfront Edgewater Resort, in a cozy cottage, and enjoy romantic views over Eagle Harbor. The hotel is in the heart of the main town, Ephraim, close to restaurants, the beach, and Peninsula State Park where you can explore Cave Point, a popular hiking trail where cliffs protrude out over picturesque sea caves.
Whether it be a stay at the top-rated, Bay Shore Inn, Rowleys Bay, or Country House Resort you'll be set up for a great night's sleep. The price per night isn't as expensive as you'd think either.
