As the reviewer of another Washington Island property stated: "First of all, you have to understand that Washington Island is a retro kind of place" -- That's absolutely essential. If you are expecting night life, high-end, ultra-modern furnishing, then visit New York City. But if you want to relax and unwind among friendly people in a gorgeous natural setting this... More

The family that runs this resort are very caring hosts. They respond do your needs in the most friendly and caring manner. You feel like you at home. I had a back issue and they supplied me with a back ice pack and even sent one with me for the ride home. We love the sunsets and the resort is... More

This resort was great but we were not thrilled with the room and trying to sleep. Not that the room was bad, but that we could hear people going up and down the stairs, in the sitting (TV room) next to us and they had a sitting bench just under our bedroom window! We had to tell some people one... More

If you are looking for a family based business, this is the place to be. Founded in 1902, it is in its 4th generation of ownership and boy have they found their groove. The rooms do not have air conditioning but there seems to always be a cool breeze coming off of the lake and the room was equipped with... More

We were very happy with our stay at the Sunset Resort on Washington Island. I would definitely stay there again. Had a beautiful waterfront room and it was awesome that we could just go downstairs and get in line for a great breakfast as well. I would definitely recommend this hotel. We had a great time.

We have never stayed the night here, but have drove or canoed down from West Harbor for breakfast. The Swedish pancakes are to die for! Great coffee as well. Quaint restaurant with super views of the water and woods. Super service by the staff. This is a frequent flyer for us !

We went for brunch. Lovely spot to hang out outside or sit inside and enjoy the view or walk around by the water and wait for a table. Very nice and simple ethnic (Finland I think) breakfast food. They serve until 11:00 am and you order on menu cards. Simple and good with an outstanding location and view. We did... More

This resort was a little gem we found on the west (Green Bay) side of the island. We stayed right before their "official season" began, so had our pick of rooms. We chose one upstairs, with a harbor view and king-sized bed. All the bedrooms had eclectic furnishings and decor, which just added to the resort's charm. Our room was... More
