this has long been a debate on here whether people should stay in Ephraim or not due to it being a dry town. For us it was never an issue if you wanted to dine with wine, etc. hop in the car and just drive to next door communities. It really is a non issue to stay there when so much is nearby and if it's not the focus of the trip. Ephraim really is one of the loveliest Door County communities.
So whether the dry town stays or goes it'll always remain a lovely place to visit and stay.
