Another wonderful stay at The Washington House Inn

4.0 on November 20, 2014

My wife and I had another great stay at the Washington House Inn. Some of the things that keep us coming back are the friendly staff and amenities. The rooms are always cozy and a warm feeling about them, we also really like the décor and set up. The Wine social has always been great too. There is a nice assortment of wine along with cheese ‘n crackers and fruits. We always enjoy sitting with a glass of wine, talking and watching the streets of Cedarburg. The beds are comfortable and the sheets are the best part. In the morning they serve a wonderful breakfast with all sorts of things to choose from. You certainly won’t go hungry. The Washington House Inn is also located in a great part of Cedarburg, close enough to take a walk or a short drive to many shops and restaurants.


A relaxing getaway

5 on November 17, 2014

My room (213) was great...the bed was comfy and the furnishings really nice. I especially liked the beams and stone wall, and the shuttered window treatments. The breakfast was tasty and plentiful--many choices, and it was great to have an egg dish. The wine & cheese hour was also a favorite! I'm sure I will be back again!


So romantic!

5 on November 17, 2014

Fabulous, warm, quiet and comfy! It was a real treat to get away even though we only had one night.


Perfect...on all accounts!

5 on November 16, 2014

We lived in Cedarburg for 10 years and often wondered about the rooms at the Washington House Inn. A job transfer moved us out of state so we decided to spend a few nights at the WH in between the closing of our Cedarburg home and the drive back East. What a perfect way to end an amazing decade in Cedarburg! The Edward Blank room exceeded our expectations in all ways. Roomy, conveniently located, clean, comfortable, beautifully decorated and well maintained. The staff was friendly and accommodating and breakfast was top notch. I highly recommend the WH to both locals and visitors. You won't be disappointed.

Lovely fall stay

4.6 on November 02, 2014

My husband and I loved our fall stay on a cold, rainy Wed. in October. The fireplace in the room warmed us, as did the wine and cheese social hour. We loved the home cooked breakfast the next day. The staff had arranged for roses displayed in our room for my birthday....the roses stayed fresh and beautiful for 2 weeks.


A great place to stay.

5 on November 01, 2014

The atmosphere is so relaxing. Breakfast is always great. We will keep coming back.


Excellent Stay

4.4 on October 30, 2014

It was a quiet, off season stay. A very comfortable, period, ambiance. Staff provided us a tour of unique rooms. Wine and cheese hour was a nice touch and the buffet breakfast was great.
