    About this property

    The House at Green Gables- a Dream Retreat in the Heart of Ephraim!

    Part of an adorable cottage hiding behind an ornate garden gate, "Plum" is at once cozy and spacious, sleeping 4-8 guests over two levels. The newly-listed cottage is part of the pretty Green Gables property in the north part of Ephraim, and is within easy walking distance to galleries, shops, mini-golf, breakfast and pizza, and a short drive from Ephraim village and the water. Green Gables itself boasts beautiful manicured gardens and a very large enclosed back lawn, great for kids, or for stargazing. The house oozes feel-good charm, with lots of windows and natural light, architectural details, and plenty of space indoors and out, to play and relax in. Outside there's a fantastic patio lounge area and professional grill to enjoy, and inside a formal fireplace invites you to curl up on the sofa-bed (with an old record playing on the vintage stereo/record player)? There's a full kitchen, with oven, fridge, dishwasher, microwave, toaster etc. Upstairs there are two very large bedrooms (one with a king bed, the other with two queens), and there's a true queen sofa-bed downstairs. All the bedding is non-allergenic. The cottage has Wi-fi, a 49" TV with cable channels, Netflix and Amazon Prime in the living room, and a washer and dryer upstairs. It's a great house for families, or two small families to share, or for a couple looking for a truly romantic and memorable Door County vacation. If Plum is booked, please check our adjoining VRBO # 1656219. This apartment ("Birch") sleeps 4 people (2 in one king bed and a further 2 in a queen sofa bed). For large parties, booking both Plum and Birch together is an option that would provide a truly wonderful and flexible experience.

        A Home Away from Home

        All of the amenities you could want in a vacation getaway. Two of us couples shared a lovely 3-day stay and made ourselves right at home. If the guys wanted to put their feet up and read while we shopped, they did. If the four of us wanted to enjoy wine on the patio, we did. Life was easy, life was good. We will be back. By the way, the mattresses are first rate.

        5/5 Excellent

          Excellent Place to Stay!

          We were so lucky to have come across the Plum at Green Gables for our trip to Door County! This rental home exceeded even our highest expectations. Upon entering the home, we found a large and very comfortable space, very well organized & clean, and beautifully furnished. All decor details were perfect This place truly felt like home away from home. It was very nice to meet Colin whom was very kind and professional, and he has truly done an amazing job at making this home so attractive and extremely well maintained inside and out.

          5/5 Excellent

            Exceeded expectations

            With this property, what you see is what you get (and more). Conveniently located and closer to both Sister Bay and Ephraim, our favorite towns in Door County, this property oozes charm as soon you drive in to park your car and lay your eyes on the over-hanging shrubs and flowers. The idyllic gardens are colorful and radiate a quintessential British charm. There is a huge, fenced in side-yard where you can kick a ball or throw a Frisbee. The interior is expertly decorated, colorful and allows so much natural lighting. I think Colin takes great pride in what he has done with the property and that it is important for him that his guests have the best of times at his property. I wish him all the best and I hope everyone who stays here enjoys it as much as we did.
