The roots run deep on Ephraim real estate. All throughout the village nods to a rich Norwegian culture can be viewed through details in architecture and local spirit. Sitting on the scenic Door County Peninsula almost a dozen sites are named on the National Register of Historic Places. The Fyr Bal Festival honors the observance of Midsummer’s Eve by Norwegian inhabitants. Galleries and shops line the streets of Ephraim real estate. Many are located in rustic buildings such as antique barns and simple log cabins.
Ephraim homes are surrounded by beautiful outdoor settings. Many parks and beaches are readily enjoyed. Serene trails traverse Ephraim Wetlands Preserve where hikers take pathways over wood bridges and across peaceful streams. Parents watch children frolic on the playground at Harborside Park. During summer evenings the park lights up with the Nights in Ephraim Concert Series. Village angler enthusiasts know all the secret spots, but everyone knows the fish are biting off of Anderson Dock. The Fireside Dock and Marina is a blast from the past but also a great place to spend the present. Kayakers, kite boarders and stand up paddle boarders are usual sights to behold in the Ephraim waters.
Wilson’s Ice Cream Parlor is a must for anyone visiting Door County. This vintage soda fountain has been serving ice cream, house-brewed root beer and burgers since 1906. Enjoy a Door County fish boil in the historic setting of the Old Post Office Restaurant overlooking beautiful Eagle Harbor. This peaceful corner of Door County is a splendid place for families, singles and couples to lay down their own roots.
