This is the third time we have stayed at the Waterbury Inn. It is a clean, well maintained hotel with nice, comfortable furniture and decor. The indoor and outdoor pools are fabulous for kids and adults, especially since they aren't very deep. Staff is friendly, helpful, and accommodating! Highly recommend.

Right on Highway 42, this facility has wonderful gardens, an outdoor and an indoor pool, as well as rooms of various sizes. I stayed in the smallest, which was very comfortable, and which had a small kitchen as well. It is in a perfect place to go anywhere in the upper Door without traveling far.

My family of 5 stayed here in June of 215 for two nights. It was like a very small apartment inside a hotel. It even had a loft with a nice big bed. Nicely furnished kitchen, regular sized refrigerator...even a dishwasher! Daily maid service. Very friendly staff. 24 hrs. coffee and hot chocolate service in their lobby. Absolutely great place...

Needed a place to rest my weary head for a single overnight, and much to my surprise, the Waterbury Inn had an opening. This time of the year very unusual to find single overnight availability when most accommodations require at least a two-night stay. Accommodations were wonderful as always - very pleasant room. I didn't take advantage of any of... More

Chris - Thanks for choosing the Waterbury Inn again as your place to stay while in Door County. Durning peak time we do sometimes get a one night vacancy in between other bookings which is rare. We are glad we could provide you a quiet restful place to stay. More

Not much was available when we decided to visit Door County at the last minute. This property was reasonable and had decent reviews. Actually, it's well located and the staff couldn't be more friendly. The condo complex is older (1980's) and well maintained. Daily maid see service. Our unit (120) has a sleeper couch that has some issues, but the... More

It is always nice to hear that our guests have a enjoyable time at the Waterubury Inn. I do want to make one correction on this review. Our lobby coffee is available from 8am - 8pm daily and we do provide you coffee in your unit as well. We hope to see you next time you visit Door County. More

This was not our first stay at the Waterbury. We come back because it is always clean and very functional. Staff was friendly and helpful. We also like the location between Ephraim and Sister Bay. It is also usually fairly quiet and restful.

We stayed in Room 217 of the Waterbury and had a wonderful time! The decor is updated and beautiful, not the usual dated, corny decorations you see in most condos. The great room, indoor pool and whirpool are all a lovely part of the facility too. We definitely plan to return and request the same room!

The Waterbury Inn is our favorite spot for summer lodging in the Door County area. The accommodations are spacious for a family of 5 and the outdoor swimming pool is the BEST! Swimming under the night sky as you watch for shooting stars can't be beat! Great location too!

My husband and I booked 4 nights, a Monday thru Friday morning while we worked in the area that week. It was completely empty as we were there during the week, and during February. But it was kind of nice having the place to ourselves. It was peaceful. Don't pass because of down season. Door County is beautiful in the... More

We loved our stay. The staff was polite, thorough and professional. Everyone makes you feel at home and makes sure you are comfortable with everything. The parking areas were very well lit. Staff was very knowledgeable about restaurants and activities in the area.
