Location Details

Peninsula State Park is one the main draws to this quiet town of Ephraim! Enjoy the endless outdoor recreation including fishing, boating, hiking, and golfing accessible a short walk away from ‘Butternut Cottage.’

The park has everything from sandy beaches to an 1860s lighthouse, making this 3,700-acre spot worthy of a 2-day adventure! After a day in the summer sun, drive 5 minutes west to the village at Fish Creek for local eats.

You can walk or ride your bike right into the park from this property's backyard. This is the 3rd largest and most complete park in the state with 3,776 gorgeous acres and 8 miles of shoreline.

You name it, Peninsula State Park has it: sand beaches, bicycle and boat rentals, hiking and bike trails throughout, nature center, historic lighthouse, 18-hole golf course, & scenic overlooks. You can rent a kayak and paddle out to Horseshoe Island. The park also has a theater with performances 6 nights a week in the summer.

Theatre entertainment is also a stone’s throw away from this charming property. The Door Community Auditorium, Northern Sky Theater, and Peninsula Players Theatre are all within a 15-minute drive.

  • Wonderful Door County Cabin


    We completely enjoyed our stay at this beautiful door county cabin. With all the beautiful sites just 15 to 20 minutes away, we were able to enjoy our weeklong stay. When we come back we will definitely stay here again!

  • Nice small cottage


    It was clean and nice however I could hear the well pump turn off and on. I thought the price was a good deal and it's right next to Peninsula Park.

  • Awesome property


    We had a great time staying in Door County at this cute cottage! When we got there, there were fresh flowers from the garden in a vase on the table, and I thought that was a really nice touch. It was so peaceful and quiet that you'd never guess it's right off the road! It was great to be able to walk into the park to hike some trails and enjoy nature. The cottage was absolutely perfect for my husband and me. As mentioned in other reviews, the shower is a bit on the small side, and the cookie sheet doesn't fit in the oven (haha), but neither of those things were a big deal to us. One tip for locking the doors that look like they don't have locks - you have to push in and turn the doorknob, and then the doorknob will be locked. I would highly recommend staying at this property during your visit to Door County!

    This was an ok place to stay. The WiFi here was extremely spotty. The water didn't come out too fast from the shower head, which makes washing long & thick hair tricky. The curtains in the bathroom were pretty much see through, which made things a bit awkward when you got out of the shower and someone is staying at the cottage by the bathroom window.

  • Butternut Cottage in Door County


    Cozy, clean and charming little cabin is perfect for a Door County get-away. The location is great, minutes away from everything and still nestled in the woods! The cabin has everything you need to cook meals, relax and have campfires. I would come back again! Great little property for up to 4 people to have a good time away!
