Tried booking a place about 2-3 weeks ahead of time for a mid-August trip. It seemed like slim pickings, either way over-the-top expensive or nothing available. But, this resort had rooms available for our long weekend stay. We had to switch rooms during our 2 night stay, but it was worth it. They moved our luggage while we were out.... More

After several phone calls for a hotel with short notice, we found this property had a cancellation for our weekend, so we booked right away and headed up. We ended up having to be in two different rooms due to availability, which was not a problem for us. Our first room was a king room in the rear of the... More

This is a fantastic place to relax and enjoy a beautiful view of the bay! It was great to be able to sit on our own private balcony and look over the water. We stayed in a one-bedroom with a double bed. The living room had a pull-out sofa. There was also a small kitchen area that was very well... More

Very nice lake view room in a quiet area away from the crowds. Spacious room with storage and not only 1 lazy boy chair but 2. Nice balcony to enjoy the lake. Amenities were great. Staff was helpful and we had a super nice time. Could not have asked for a better or nicer room.

We spent the Labor Day weekend here and it was perfect. Ephraim is so much more relaxed and less crowded that Fish Creek just to the south. This motel is clean, beds comfortable, room facing the bay is great! Several places to eat within walking distance, and plenty more within 5 minutes drive. Staff was friendly. Could not ask for...

Awsome stay at Ephraim Shores. Always a clean and quiet room. Staff is always friendly and helpful. The weather is always great when we are there. Sort of like Camelot. Didn't want to leave. Will be back next year!

We spent the weekend and really enjoyed the room and the staff. The whole place was well maintained. The room was clean and spacious, nice outside area to sit and enjoy the morning or evening. That is if you didn't want to walk across the road and sit on the shoreline. We also enjoyed the whirlpool. The staff was friendly... More
