The Washington House Inn was so very conveniently located for us to visit all the shops and enjoy delicious local dining. We were very impressed with the cleanliness and comfort of the room, the beds, linens, towels, and general appearance. We were surprised and pleased with the generous wine social hour complete with a large variety of local wine and delicious appetizers. The breakfast was absolutely delightful, everything freshly made, even the pastries and all so very tasty. Splitting the reasonable cost of the room three ways made our stay most affordable. I definitely will recommend the Washington House Inn in Cedarburg to all my friends, and plan on returning soon.

We have enjoyed our two-nights stay at the Washington House Inn. The rooms are certainly unique, the staff is kind and helpful; Breakfast was a delight. Old Cedarburg is a great little town to walk around exploring and the people are very friendly and cooperative, making you feel at home. All in all it was a delightful, short getaway.

This is the second time I've stayed at the Washington House. The first time, I had a great room in the main hotel. This time, I stayed at the Schroeder House, which is a few doors down the street. The Schroeder House is not near as nice as the main hotel. The shower was extremely small. It was like showering in a coffin. The whirlpool tub was not as big, and the stair climb was terrible, especially carrying a heavy suitcase to the second floor. No elevator. I would recommend staying in the main hotel, but I wouldn't stay at the Schroeder House again. It's way overpriced for the quality. If you are handicapped or over the age of 50, don't take a second floor room.
