Mid August or Early September for a short vacation

Although we've visited Ephraim many times, I'm having trouble deciding when to come up. We love sitting on the beach late in the day, as well as hiking and all the other fun activities. We can do the 2nd weekend in August or the first weekend after Labor Day. I know we can't predict rainy weather, but hoping for some thoughts/suggestions??

ps. Kids are grown...so just the two of us :-)

Thanks a big bunch!

early Sept. after Labor Day is a good choice considering you're traveling without kids. It's also before the Fall color busy season when it picks back up.

Hands down the weekend after Labor Day. Days should be warm and nights cool with just that little hint of the approaching fall. Everything will be open and far less crowded.

Thanks so much for the confirmation! We always stayed at the Ephraim Guest House because it's so nice to have more space, and the cost is reasonable. Any other suggestions on where to stay would be soo appreciated...for something different to experience.

Thanks, again!

we loved Bay Breeze Resort, the lush green grass, flowers, good upkeep, great owners, private beach across the road, and great room.

We traveled with kids and in the Summer season so it was probably more expensive than for you traveling but also only about 30 over normal price and was a special treat for us.

Also liked this place but didn't stay here yet:

You could check out the Homestead in Fish Creek. Some of their rooms have a separate living room with a small kitchen and two person whirlpools. They also have indoor and outdoor pools, free breakfast and are walking distance to some good restaurants. You will also be at the main entrance to Peninsula State Park and can walk to 2 bike rental places.
