Cedarburg is such a step back in time--a wonderful experience. The Washington House Inn certainly added to the ambiance of the overnight. The inn has been beautifully maintained. Love staying in historic inns. The friendliness of the staff was welcoming. Certainly enjoyed the wine and cheese hour and the breakfast the next day. We enjoyed a "few extras" to the stay courtesy of our LivingSocial coupon--made the experience even more worthwhile. Thanks, we'll be back and will certainly recommend to friends.
We've been coming here for years and always find it a nice relaxing getaway. Everyone is wonderful, and the comp wine and cheese at night (and breakfast in the morning) makes it well worth it. Thanks again!!
Can't say enough good things about the Washington House Inn! The rooms are so charming and nicely decorated, breakfast was absolutely delicious and it's in a great location, just a short walk to great restaurants, quaint shops, a winery, a brewery, and a restored movie theatre! Perfect for a one or two night getaway!
We booked a room over the Easter weekend. The sheets and the shower are amazing!!! We did not sample any food while we were there, but the service was great. The little add ons like a cookbook and a caramel apple were well enjoyed.
We stayed in room 222, the Dr. Frederick A. Luening room. Lots of nice features to the room, had a very old-fashioned feel. The whirlpool was our favorite part about the room, and made the price of the room worth it. We discovered dead moths in the bed the next morning, it was quite off-putting. No onsite dinner, the included continental breakfast was nice with homemade breads, fruit spreads and cakes, but we were expecting more breakfast options from a high-end hotel.
Washington House Inn has become my special getaway from a busy life in Chicago. I have stayed there multiple times on my own, with my daughter and granddaughters (7 and 10), and with a group of friends. I love wandering Cedarburg, zipping into Milwaukee for the day, gathering in the dining room in the evening for games. The rooms are charming, the staff feels more like family than staff, the breakfasts are always amazing.
A very comfortable room(210) , a good bed and luxurious sheets. The innkeeper allowed our three grand children to join us for breakfast as a courtesy. Much appreciated. The buffet breakfast menu varies every day and is extensive, but a little too rich for our taste. This was our second stay of six days and we will definitely come back
Loved the Washington Inn. Totally exceeded my expectations. Can't wait to visit again. The Inn was very cute and historic. Our room was great and loved the sheets. The wine social hour was very nice and the Breakfast was outstanding.
It's hard to find the right superlatives to describe our experience at the Port Hotel. Our room was beautifully furnished with antiques that were works of art, while the bathroom was new and upscale. Immaculate describes the housekeeping. The staff was so welcoming and couldn't do enough for us. Dinner prices were higher than expected, but worth it, with unusual options and perfect preparation. We enjoyed the comfortable atmosphere of the bar and were delighted when a waitress showed us the elegant lounge in an attached room, where we enjoyed the fireplace, sumptuous leather furniture and piped in jazz. The noon check out time was a bonus and allowed us another hour in our lovely room with a view of historic Port Washington. And then there was Sunday brunch. Coffee and juice should have been included, but the variety and quality was excellent. Given the choice, I would opt for breakfast in bed on the other mornings. Evening maid service and white terry robes were other charming touches.
We love our annual stay at the Washington House Inn! The rooms are unique and cozy. The wine and cheese happy hour is a favorite, and the breakfast is perfect and yummy every time! We spend the day shopping and tasting wine, and always have a nice dinner out in Cedarburg. Perfect place to stay in a perfect little town!
Was a beautiful hotel and breakfast. Really loved it in many ways. Only downside was not sleeping very well. Our room was right off the lobby so it was hard to sleep past 5 am because of the older doors being opened/shut as people went to eat or leave.
Rooms are very nice with a variety of decor. The breakfasts are exceptional with a large variety of food, homemade pastries & cakes, fresh fruit and juices. Several nice shops nearby and the movie theater next door is a great place o catch a movie at a great price.
We are long-time guests at the Washington House Inn and always look forward to our trips to Cedarburg. In addition to the luxurious rooms the staff is always pleasant and rarely changes, a sign of a good employer. The breakfast pastries are excellent and made in-house. This is our go-to destination for a night way from it all.
For a good month ahead of our getaway, we are looking forward to it. And for many days after, we feel the afterglow. Washington House Inn is the best! One little detail that is so helpful is that they have menus of nearby restaurants to help plan your dining out. One nearby restaurant even has a special menu for delivery to Washington House Inn. These people think of everything!
This was my first time staying at the Washington House Inn, and I simply loved it! The room I chose was everything I thought it would be, as I picked online by viewing the pictures on the website. The breakfast was good and I particularly enjoyed the wine and cheese social hour that was included. Even though my stay was during the off season, there was plenty to do in the area and the town is quite lovely. I will be back for another visit, but hopefully in the warmer months.
A favorite place for a quick and easy getaway. Very comfortable, with things to do within walking and driving distance. Service that is focused on making you comfortable while respecting your privacy - friendly but not intrusive. Dining would be rated higher, but how do we rate breakfast service only? It is a very good breakfast, and there are good places to eat within walking distance, so there are no complaints.
We are relatively local to Port Washington and needed a little getaway. We wanted to avoid the "usual" hotels and found a wonderful, luxurious and unique experience at the Port Hotel. Clean and classy. The Water Haven shower is amazing. Amazing. (Onsite Dining gets a '3' as our room service bacon was burnt. But we enjoyed our breakfast despite the burnt bacon.)
Our first visit to the Washington House Inn was in January and it definitely will not be our last. We fell in love with the place the minute we walked in the door, and even more so when we arrived in our guest room. The bed was extremely comfortable, the linens are amazing, the whirlpool tub was fabulous. We really enjoyed the breakfast each morning but unfortunately did not partake in the evening wine/cheese get together, we were to busy enjoying the town of Cedarburg. Cannot wait for our return trip which we already have planned for the Spring.
