Winter Activities Draw Visitors to Use Ephraim Wisconsin Lodging

ephraim-wisconsin-lodging-esOutdoor activities always are among the most popular reasons to visit Door County. Whether it is the colors of fall, the serene beauty of winter, the blossoms of spring or the energy of summer, Ephraim, Wisconsin lodging is a destination regardless of the time of year.

Snowshoeing is a popular activity throughout Door County, and a number of parks offer guided snowshoe hikes or introductory classes. Most offer a limited selection of snowshoes to use, but you may want to rent some at a sporting goods store just to be on the safe side.

If you’ve never used snowshoes before, you might be surprised what a workout they are! The combination of using different muscles than your normal walking stride and the potential for wading through deep snow makes for an exhilarating adventure.

If skating is more your style, you’ll want to check out the Valentine’s Day Sweetheart Skate on Saturday, February 14, at the Sister Bay Sports Complex.

Ephraim Shores January 2014 Happenings

Posted on: January 10th, 2014 by staff No Comments

Polar Vortex Leaves Motels in Door County in the Deep Freeze

Winter Offers Its Own Brand of Beauty

The surge of frigid air that swept through the eastern half of the country in early January made it colder at Ephraim Shores and other motels in Door County than the North Pole. Really, it did.

Local residents stayed bundled up inside as temperatures plunged to 15 to 20 degrees below zero, and brisk winds made it feel like closer to 45 below zero. That’s cold even by our standards!

For those bold enough to brave the elements, the bright white of sun-splashed ice and snow provides a clean canvas for nature to create some beautiful scenery. If you’re able to make the drive up here, you’ll see a version of Door County that is very different from that of the busy season.

It’s gorgeous, and we wouldn’t trade it for the world.

Online Reservations Now Open

Door County Half MarathonBook your room at Ephraim Shores early for the Door County Half Marathon and Nicolet Bay 5K runs, scheduled for May 4. Our online reservation system is now open for the 2014 season at http://ephraimshores.com/.

We expect a full house for this popular weekend, and we would be honored to have you stay with us. Ephraim Shores offers one of the most convenient and comfortable places to enjoy one of the first big races of the season of any resort or motel in Door County.
