Nice stay in Cedarburg.

Room 222 was quite large. Overall excellent. Not much drawer space for the size room. Very quiet. Thermostat had a little trouble getting to set point cool although the room was OK as outside temps not real hot.

Loved the Washington Inn

5 on June 17, 2017

Just wanted to visit Cedarburg and made reservations at The Washington Inn. From the time we arrived we were greeted with a great welcoming from the staff. Loved the location of our room looking over a very charming town. The room was beautifully appointed and comfortable. The breakfast was perfect more then enough to eat. There is no question we will visit the town again and stay at the Inn.


Clean, and classic

4.8 on June 14, 2017

The staff here was very helpful and polite. The rooms were clean. The classic feel of the building is amazing but it also has just the right touch of modern that you can tell it's been cared for well. Highly recommended!


Always a great place to stay

5 on June 14, 2017

When we visit Cedarburg the only place we stay is the Washington House Inn. The rooms are always inviting and clean and the breakfast is always delicious.


Wonderful Stay

5 on May 07, 2017

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.
