What are the Park Place Cottages like?
The cottages are charming "little houses" that are nicely furnished and decorated and fully equipped. There are four cottages (with five units) at Park Place Cottages.

What is the location and setting of the Park Place Cottages?
This is a great location for experiencing the Door Peninsula. Park Place Cottages is located on the south end of Ephriam in central Door County, right next to Peninsula Park. This is a 6+ acre park-like setting that combines woods with lawn, mature treees, nice landscaping and plenty of flower gardens. There are two street entrances to the cottages. You can enter at 9709 Highway 42 or from 9726 Highland Road (the middle road going to the park). You can literally ride your bike or walk right out the back of the property and into Peninsula State Park.
