We checked in and the staff was very friendly and welcoming. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable with nice view of the outside. We didn't have time to take advantage of any of the pools, but they seemed very nice and well maintained. There were a number of families enjoying them. Overall, a very nice experience for a reasonable... More

We just spent the Fourth of July holiday at the Waterbury and loved it! Every staff member was friendly and incredibly helpful. Traci was especially great! Our room was spotless and the view from our kitchen/living room made us feel like we were in a tree house. We will definitely be back to stay at the Waterbury.

While we liked the location, it was not the best overall experience. Wally was very nice, but Traci was rude to everyone. We were shocked at the way she talked to the guests. Also, our room was 90 degrees when we checked in, and it took a very long time to cool it down.

I am sorry to hear that you did not have a good experience during your stay with us. I did not have much interaction that weekend with guests as I did not work a shift. I was just back up for our front desk and maintenance personnel and had minimal contact with our guests. The only interaction I had with... More

I have made several trips to Door County, but this was my first stay at the Waterbury Inn. What a wonderful experience! The Waterbury Inn is north of Ephraim and is right in the middle of all the towns, so it is easy to go anywhere on the peninsula . I was traveling with an old friend, so we each... More

My husband I spent our first wedding anniversary at the Waterbury Inn and it was perfect! The room was clean and hotel was very quiet. We have been to Door County before, but haven't stayed in Emphraim. This hotel was in a perfect location - close to shops, wineries, spa, mini golfing, etc. anything you can think of. We stayed...

We have enjoyed the indoor pool, whirlpool, and outdoor pool, and are excited to come back again next year. We are looking forward to bringing our entire family in several years when we... More

Who doesn't love Door County? Found this condo to be very well located and comfortable. Well furnished. Door County being what it is, we didn't spend alot of time at the condo, but it seems more than adequate to spend some quality vacation time. Has become my regular choice when staying in Door County. Especially like that we can get... More

Clean, quiet, and affordable. When I plan a trip to Door County, I always check to see if there are vacancies at The Waterbury first. We love having a kitchen to make simple meals when we don't feel like eating out. We also like taking a glass of wine down to the great room to relax by the fire.
