“Perfect!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

This was my first visit to a bed and breakfast, and I was pleasantly surprised. I have absolutely nothing but praise for this place. My room looked identical to what is shown on their website. Housekeeping is wonderful...one day I didn't need service, and they left me a basket (yes a real basket) of towels, bottled water, soaps, coffee, etc. The amenities are high quality-Thyme's soap/lotion. Huge fluffy white towels, high quality sheets. Breakfast is extra special. Homemade delights and a large variety to choose from (fruit, pastry, eggs, granola, bacon/sausage). I liked how the breakfast offerings changed daily. Every evening the wine and cheese reception is definitely worth attending. A large variety of wines from a local vineyard, along with different cheeses and crackers. I enjoyed chatting with other guests in the gathering room, but also appreciated being able to have privacy when needed. The location is a plus as well. I basically parked my car and walked everywhere else. I guess I could go on and on. Just know that you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: I stayed in room 222, which is on the end. I had a loft, 2 fireplaces. HUGE whirlpool bath in a se...

We love visiting the Washington House Inn. The staff is so friendly and accommodating. The rooms are very quaint and cozy. Breakfast whether delivered to your room or served in the Gathering Room is wonderfully fresh. We look forward to our next visit this Fall. location will not disappoint either with many restaurants, shops and movie theatre within walking distance. there is a winery within walking distance for tours and tastings. Social hour at the Inn features wines from the local winery. Delicious!!

Room Tip: Definitely reserve a room with a fireplace.

I love staying at the Washington House. There is something so special about it. The staff is wonderful. The rooms are cozy and comfortable. We normally stay in the summer but we just took advantage of a winter special and it was fabulous. It was the perfect romantic getaway. That was our 9th visit to the Washington House and we have never been disappointed. The rooms are so beautiful, clean and private. I've recommended it to friends and they have loved me for it!

Our second stay at Washington House Inn did not disappoint. Every staff member we encountered was friendly and helpful. Our room was charming--old world feel--with remodeled bathroom with a huge walk-in shower with many shower heads. Special touches are the wine and cheese social hour and the lovely breakfast. The location in Historic Cedarburg is perfect. Close to shopping, restaurants, movie theater and chocolate shop. We look forward to our next visit.l

The Washington House Inn is truly a unique place to stay - the property has been lovingly restored and maintained. You feel the history but also enjoy modern amenities. The location couldn't be better - the inn is located in the heart of downtown Cedarburg. On the evening of our stay, my daughter and I walked to dinner and then to a movie. The Inn provides a complete getaway experience with a wine and cheese cocktail hour plus a morning breakfast. It was wonderful to wake up in our comfy bed with down comforter and come downstairs to hot coffee, eggs, sausage and an assortment of homemade bakery. Staying at the Washington House Inn has become our annual tradition for the past several years and will continue!

Room Tip: Rooms off Washington Avenue tend to be quieter.

We decided to try the Washington House Inn because of a Living Social deal. Great deal, great place to stay and great town. Everything is within walking distance and everyone from staff at hotel, to bartenders, to shop employees, to restaurant servers were great, friendly, and seemed genuinely happy to be there and speak to you. Amy's Candy Apples were delicious, the coffee house was tasty, and dinner at the Stilt House and Anvil Pub and Grille had some great original choices that were delicious and reasonably priced. We will definitely come back and have recommended it to friends and family.

Room Tip: We loved Room 209. No real view but quiet and the atmosphere and décor remind you of an earlier time...

We have been coming to The Washington House Inn once or twice a year for 19 years for an overnight getaway and could not be more pleased with the beautiful rooms, the service and the special feeling that one has when staying there. The town of Cedarburg is quaint and historic with great shops and historical value but The Washington House Inn truly makes a visit there special. You will not go wrong with choosing this beautiful Inn.

Room Tip: We have stayed in many different rooms and have not found any issues in any specific area. All rooms...
