Anniversary Stay

4.2 on June 23, 2016

Room was very quiet. This is a very old property, but it is well maintained. The room would have presented better if the coverlet on the bed had not been so old, faded, drab, etc. In a community that has a quilt museum, surely they could have had a nice coverlet, e.g., a QUILT!. Otherwise, the room was very nice. Breakfast? OUTSTANDING!


Lovely Inn

My husband and I stayed at the Inn while we were in town for a nearby event and absolutely loved the charm of the Inn. Everyone was so unbelievably friendly and accommodating! The continental breakfast was superb!


Great Experience at Washington Inn

4.4 on June 16, 2016

Visited for a romantic night. Room 207 - beautifully decorated, spotless, and cozy. The ordered bottle of champagne was waiting and chilled. The continental breakfast was outstanding and included hot scrambled eggs and ham, which was not expected. This B&B does not offer lunch and dinner, but there are several restaurants within easy walking distance.


Always, always wonderful

We've stayed here many times, and we always have a terrific time. The rooms are gorgeous and spotless, the staff is great, the wine, cheese and breakfast are delicious, and the whole place is delightful. Highly recommended.


Great Stay - Thank You!

Wonderful Accomodations

Attention to detail in the whole house. It's like stepping back in time. Very clean room and super comfortable bed. Spacious room w/chairs and place to hang clothes. Wonderful breakfast w/many choices. Like the coffee and treats anytime, especially for us early risers (5:30 am). Very friendly, helpful staff. One of the better B&B's we have stayed in. Nicely done - thank you.


Great stay

Relaxing night at Washington House Inn

4.8 on June 06, 2016

We stayed in Room 207, using a deal from Living Social. The room was beautifully decorated and spotless clean. The whirlpool tub was a tight squeeze for two, but we managed! The bed was very comfortable. The so-called continental breakfast was lavish and excellent - scrambled eggs and ham, fresh pastry, fresh fruit, bottomless coffee and juice refills, even maple butter; all served in the spacious dining room. The Inn does not offer a bar or restaurant, but several are walking distance. We used the movie theater tickets provided as part of the deal. The theater is located next door. There was plenty of parking. The front desk clerk was friendly and competent. We'll be back!


Love this place!

5 on June 01, 2016

This is our third time staying here - always a wonderful time. The staff is so kind and accommodating, and the wine & cheese happy hour and breakfast are delicious!


L.O.V.E.D. our stay!

5 on May 31, 2016

Can't wait to go back and make more memories - Cedarburg is charming and the Washington Inn is the perfect place to stay to put yourself in the middle of the fun. Staff was exceptionally attentive, breakfast brunch was scrumptious, wine/cheese event was the perfect end to a shopping day. Our room was comfortable and charming.
