The Hillside Inn is one of the oldest buildings in Ephraim; it’s one of the last remaining original Graceful Hotels. Built in 1890, it has since earned its place on the National Register of Historic Places. Much of the village was built around this beautiful mansion, making it easy for guests to explore Ephraim on foot. Visit the many art galleries, wineries, breweries, artisanal cheese-makers, historic buildings, and guest lectures at various adult learning centers around the Peninsula. During the summer, visitors and locals alike enjoy spending time on the waters of Eagle Harbor. Kayaking, paddleboarding, sailing, and romantic cruises are especially popular in this region. During the colder months, the ground is covered in a pristine blanket of snow that’s perfect for cross-country skiing or snowshoeing.

Food & Wine

Through the years, The Hillside Inn has been outfitted with modern amenities and conveniences. Guests can enjoy our 24-hour espresso station with homemade shortbread cookies, located in our cozy library.

Year round, guests of The Hillside Inn are treated to a light Continental breakfast with Greek yogurt, fruit, locally made breads and pastries as well as juice and coffee. During the colder months, we offer a delicious hot entree that takes advantage of local ingredients.
