I attended a one-day workshop at the Clearing Folk School in Ellison Bay. I wanted to come in the day before and stay somewhere close to the town where the Clearing Folk School is. I booked one night at the Waterbury Inn and was very pleased w/ my stay. Room was actually a small kitchenette, which was nice to have.... More

The minute I walked into the building I felt like a guest and was greeted by two awesome people behind the counter. If you love dogs (you better) then you will love the family bulldog hanging out behind the counter. She is a massive character and enormously friendly! The first few seconds of walking into this place was like walking... More

Tucked away in a quieter part of Door County is Waterbury Inn. Ideal in winter or summer to visit this delightful part of the world. Indoor pool, spa and friendly staff made staying in this comfortable establishment a pleasure. Clean and tidy, it had all our family and 1 year old baby needed.

We stayed in a room with the loft and it was ideal. In fact the whole room was ideal. It was set up and stocked perfectly. We didn't need to ask for anything. One note is that the units with the loft are on the second floor which makes sense but we didn't know that when reserving. My Mom, who... More

We've been coming to the Waterbury Inn for over 15 years, not every year but multiple times with kids and without. The reasons we originally chose this property stay true, good location, reasonable rates, pool, game room and enough of a kitchen to have small meals. We also liked the lofts to separate kids and parents for some of the... More

We just completed a three-night stay at the Waterbury Inn and while the overall rating for the property is very good, they need to improve upon a few areas. First, and foremost, the unit owners have to accept that it is 2015 and if they want to sell themselves as a luxury hotel they need to provide the amenities and... More

We are glad you tried the Waterbury Inn on your trip to Door County and we do appreciate your feedback. We fear you have gotten the wrong impression of our inn. We are a family friendly condominium resort and not a luxury hotel. In fact, we specifically advertise ourselves as a family friendly resort with several amenities such as a... More

We came here with our 8 month old son on our first family vacation. The staff was great and courteous, the room was clean and the grounds were well kept. We would and will be staying here again on our next visit.

We just stayed 3 nights and loved the Waterbury Inn. It is very clean. All of the staff are very personable. There is a great outdoor pool, in addition to an indoor pool and hot tub. The ping pong room is an added bonus. The lobby is inviting and I think our party of 5 caused the s'mores cappuccino to... More

We were overall very happy with the Waterbury Inn. It was great for a small family but you will need multiple rooms for a larger family. But either way-- good amenities, clean, convenient and friendly staff.
