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.

Another great stay!

We've been coming here for years and always find it a nice relaxing getaway. Everyone is wonderful, and the comp wine and cheese at night (and breakfast in the morning) makes it well worth it. Thanks again!!


Superb in every way!

Can't say enough good things about the Washington House Inn! The rooms are so charming and nicely decorated, breakfast was absolutely delicious and it's in a great location, just a short walk to great restaurants, quaint shops, a winery, a brewery, and a restored movie theatre! Perfect for a one or two night getaway!


Quiet Town for Easter Weekend

4.2 on April 19, 2017

We booked a room over the Easter weekend. The sheets and the shower are amazing!!! We did not sample any food while we were there, but the service was great. The little add ons like a cookbook and a caramel apple were well enjoyed.


Great Room

3.4 on April 18, 2017

We stayed in room 222, the Dr. Frederick A. Luening room. Lots of nice features to the room, had a very old-fashioned feel. The whirlpool was our favorite part about the room, and made the price of the room worth it. We discovered dead moths in the bed the next morning, it was quite off-putting. No onsite dinner, the included continental breakfast was nice with homemade breads, fruit spreads and cakes, but we were expecting more breakfast options from a high-end hotel.


Special Getaway

4.6 on April 18, 2017

Washington House Inn has become my special getaway from a busy life in Chicago. I have stayed there multiple times on my own, with my daughter and granddaughters (7 and 10), and with a group of friends. I love wandering Cedarburg, zipping into Milwaukee for the day, gathering in the dining room in the evening for games. The rooms are charming, the staff feels more like family than staff, the breakfasts are always amazing.


Lovely stay in Cedarburg

4.6 on April 16, 2017

A very comfortable room(210) , a good bed and luxurious sheets. The innkeeper allowed our three grand children to join us for breakfast as a courtesy. Much appreciated. The buffet breakfast menu varies every day and is extensive, but a little too rich for our taste. This was our second stay of six days and we will definitely come back
