perfect hotel for this beautiful town

3.8 on August 25, 2014

Wonderful staff, beautiful hotel. The only disadvantage is the missing elevator, not recommendable if you can't climb stairs.

I enjoyed my short stay.

I didn't arrive until late in the evening and I had to go to the bar to find someone in the building. I was treated very well and introduce to the hotel. The free in room continental breakfast (stuff French Toast) was very tasty. There were moderately priced options too. The room was very neat & clean and the décor was very nice. Overall, it was a very good experience and I will stay there again next year when I return to Port Washington.

Overall nice, but if I'm being picky...

The outside building is beautiful, and our room was nice and clean but little things bothered us. The website made it sound like a fabulous breakfast was included, but it really wasn't and we would have had to pay extra. There was no fan which made the room stuffy, and when the air kicked on it was super loud. The bathroom was large, but no table or vanity to put my things. Only one mirror in the room. The water haven shower was as wonderful as it sounds once you figure out how to work it.

Our stay was very nice. The food was good and the room was comfy.

Great one night stay

Great location, room and service. It was a fantastic experience, the only down side was the breakfast bar in the morning. The coffee was not great, and there was not enough food for everyone- not many food options either. We also tried to go to the restaurant for brunch on Sunday morning (around 10), but the door for the restaurant was locked and after a couple of times trying to get in, since we hear people inside, we just went elsewhere.

Delightful birthday getaway

Very elegant and comfortable room, European atmosphere

We did not eat at the restaurant since the street festival to kick off the summer had so much food available. No kids in the hotel was a big plus for us. We would definitely return.

Another Lovely Stay

We stayed for the second time this past weekend. As before, our room was beautiful and very comfortable. Breakfast is delivered to your door in the morning, and was delicious. We will definitely stay again!

What a great place!

This is a great place to stay, very scenic area, nice little shops, especially enjoyed the Duluth Trading Co. We will go again.

Winter at Lake Michigan.

We arrived on the town's annual "Girls Night Out", so the town was very active. All the merchants were open late, and friendly police made the streets pedestrian-friendly. The innkeeper was friendly and professional, giving us a tour of the room. The room was very nice. The staff were friendly, and delivered ice and breakfast to the room--on the 3rd floor. No elevator, and the stairs were somewhat steep but manageable. The in-room fireplace was nice but the pilot kept trying to light all night after we turned the fire off. We never were able to get the wifi to work.
