Refreshing Getaway!

5 on February 01, 2017

This has become a regular winter retreat for my husband and I. The unique rooms and picturesque town retain the character of by gone years! The winery and brewery are regular stops for us. And there are great places to eat and walk. We always feel like we have been on a real vacation even if we have only stayed for a night or two! A person is kind of transported to a different place and time--when service was special!


Always excellent

The rooms are comfortable and beautifully appointed, the staff are efficient and friendly, and the breakfasts are wonderful. We have stayed here several times and Washington House Inn is our first choice when we want a relaxing time away...we know once we arrive everything will be taken care of!


Wonderful Romantic Getaway!

We came for my fiance's birthday weekend, and were blown away by The Washington House Inn. It was so quaint and cozy. Our room was great - the sheets are the softest you'll ever feel! The wine & cheese hour was far beyond our expectations, and breakfast in the morning was incredible. We will be back!


Another wonderful stay in Cedarburg!
