     We continue to celebrate our 20th Anniversary at the helm of Eagle Harbor Inn, amidst its 73 year history of welcoming guests to Ephraim! 

      We had a fantastic day on June 28th with our Ice Cream Social to celebrate this anniversary with guests who were in house, some of them returning for their 17th year, as well as old staff members who dropped in, & some guests who drove up for the day just for the event! For those who could not join us you can investigate our history wall in the Inn which compiles memorabilia & ads from the cottage days, as well as the 1948 Door County Visitor Guide & legal history of ownership of this property. 

     Whenever you will be joining us, you will be guaranteed to have a tremendous time since the water level is up, the Bay is ready for swimming & the temperature is Door County perfect-a welcome relief from the 90's at home! We look forward to welcoming you all again!

NEW small business DINING FINDS!  

      In recent years, there has been a large demand for healthier vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free cooking: Check out these three up-and-coming businesses!


      A new favorite is Viva Real Live Food Bar. The owners Iain and Isabel have a passion for healthy living, and last July they opened up their restaurant in Sister Bay across from the beach. Their mainstay is a juice and smoothie bar, but offer innovative selections of garden salads and sandwiches which can be had with homemade gluten-free bread. Their menu also includes hot or iced Alterra coffee, homemade chai and lavender lemonade, and Italian sodas made with homemade organic syrups! Viva is the only restaurant that serves kombucha on tap!  


     Nick and Mary Deviley started their quickly growing business, Tapuat Kombucha, in Sister Bay.  Kombucha is a fermented and slightly carbonated tea drink made from a living plant, similar to a mushroom, and it is cultured and brewed together with different sorts of teas for a variety of flavors and special properties.  All of the ingredients are organic and delicious, and the cultured drink has many wonderful antibodies and virus-fighting bacteria and yeasts that contribute to healthy living while building a strong immune system. Nick and Mary make their kombucha in small handcrafted batches, yet the demand has increased so dramatically they are moving to a much larger property to meet retail orders! 


     For those familiar with the fabulous pizza at Wild Tomato in Fish Creek, the owners, the Unkefers, have opened a new location in Sister Bay next to the post office called

Bier Zot!  This tiny spot serves a full array of wines, local beers, and a few creative food items. The Unkefers are known around the county for trying new things in their garden and in the kitchen, and for always having a full house in their restaurant. Take a seat at one of their street side umbrella tables & be a summer spectator!
