Honestly folks, we came across this place purely by accident. While traveling the door just North of Ephraim we saw a little sign off to the left reading “Fred & Fuzzy’s waterfront bar and grill.” Our first thought was, “hey, we’ve never been here!” It didn’t take us long to decide we wanted to check it out (besides, we were thirsty!). Like we said, it’s North of the village of Ephraim, so to find it just look for the sign on the left as you approach Sister Bay.

You will travel down what the locals refer to as “little sister hill” and the driveway entrance is right at the bottom. We could hardly wait to see what was in store for us as we traveled down the winding black topped road that lead us to a small parking area. The scenery is beautiful! The resort and waterfront bar are set in a wonderful friendly cedar woods with stone fences and pathways leading to quaint cottages and chalets. From here we walked down a path towards the water hoping find out, just who are these guys, Fred and Fuzzy!?! To find out what we discovered, check out our separate review of Fred and Fuzzy’s Waterfront Bar & Grill! To find out more about the resort amenities, read on!
The Little Sister Resort is definitely one of the few remaining authentic Door County resorts still operating on the peninsula. Its location is both stunning and quaint; isolated yet offering all the comforts of home, complete with the amenities and scenic beauty that have made Door County a popular vacation destination for decades. There are 13 cottages, three homes and six chalets spread out over 20 acres with over 400 feet of private shoreline for you to enjoy. Many of the cottages offer a water view. With so many different styles of accommodations to choose from, the Little Sister Resort is perfect for any size group.
Cottages come with small refrigerators, cable TV, full bathrooms with standing showers; bedroom, and some have screened in porches. All the cottages we were in were very clean and well kept. Chalets are larger than the cottages and feature full kitchens, living rooms and wood burning fireplaces. Yes, we did say wood burning fireplaces! Is there anything better than sitting in front of the fireplace listening to the crackle of wood burning? Besides, the wood is free! All the cottages and chalets come with light housekeeping services. There are also three nice homes on the property that are very secluded and perfect for families or couples who want a more space.
The number 16 chalet is part of a duplex situated along side Bay Ridge golf Course with a large wrap around deck that provides an awesome view of willow trees and a pond that decorate the number seven fairway. It features a vaulted ceiling over the combination dining room/living room. The living room has a sleeper sofa, recliner rocker and a nice table for four. There is a great full kitchen with a window providing a view of the golf course. There are two spacious bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other with two twin beds. This chalet has plenty of room for up to six people utilizing the sleeper sofa. The large wrap around deck is fantastic for hanging out with friends and family and the view is really nice.
We got in many cottages and found all of them really nice. They are placed around the property among the cedar trees with pathways leading to the water and the large dining complex. Cottage 20 is said to be the most popular and we really liked as well. It has a view of the marina through the trees. This cottage has a living room dining room combination and a kitchenette. A great limestone wood burning fireplace, pine trim throughout and cable TV complete this very cozy cottage. Looking for something a little bigger? Check out cottage 21, it sleeps six and has a nice kitchenette and a screened in porch—nice. Cottage 23 is absolutely adorable and perfect for honeymooners. It is a true Door County cottage with a stone fireplace (wood burning), white washed lap-siding, carpeted floor, lots of windows and a nice queen bed.
DINING AT LITTLE SISTER
Truly something special about the Little Sister Resort is the unique dining experience that comes with staying there. The breakfasts are offered from mid June through the 3rd week of August. They are served in the resort dining room centrally located on the property. This dining room is really quite nice, very relaxing and cozy and all in all provides a wonderful place to breakfast with your family. It has a large cabin feel with vaulted ceilings, exposed trusses, wood tables made from the old Sister Bay bowling alley, skylights, plenty of wild game mounts and of course a large stone wood burning fireplace. There is also a covered deck with even more seating. Home-cooked breakfast is served from 8 am until 10 am in this cedar dining hall, and can include home-baked pastries, eggs and egg dishes, pancakes and more. No rush either - you can linger and enjoy some coffee too! Charming atmosphere - we love it!
This resort offers many of the recreational things to do in Door County. Of course, being located on the water helps! Just take a look at what’s available to you when you stay at Little Sister Resort: Swimming, kayaks, paddle boats, a boat launch and slips - free use of row boats and shuffle board. Want more?!? How about children’s playground, fishing (license needed) and boating. Don’t forget a really fun place to eat and drink at Fred & Fuzzy’s Waterfront Bar, just down the hill! DoorCountyNavigator.com staff loves this little hideaway and eatery - it is something special!
