This is the place to stay when visiting charming downtown Cedarburg, right in the middle of the main street so it's easy to walk to shops and restaurants. Also right off the Ozaukee Interurban Trail for biking and walking. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We did not partake of the breakfast, although as a nice touch during the pandemic you can also have it delivered to your room if you don't want to go to the dining room. Instead of the traditional happy hour you get vouchers for wine and a charcuterie board at a nearby pub, which was nice for relaxing on our first afternoon in town. We stayed in the guest house 3 doors down. Our room was spacious and quiet on the back side of the building. I was worried about facing a parking lot but it's a small lot and there's a cute area with a couple tables in the shade, great for reading or enjoying a treat from one of the many candy shops nearby. The decor is a little dated but the room was spotless. Plenty of hot water in the shower. You'll pay a premium to stay here on a holiday weekend but for us it was worth it. I would absolutely stay here again.

I spent 2 glorious nights at the Inn and it was wonderful to be in a different place, besides home. The Inn staff are doing everything they can to make your stay special, including taking extra precautions for everyone’s safety and everything was perfect! All staff wore masks and practiced social distancing, but still maintained their friendliness and commitment to my comfort and were genuinely grateful for my business. The afternoon social is cancelled at this time, but I received some delightful cookies instead. Also, a modified breakfast was delivered outside my door, instead of eating in the gathering room. They removed all unnecessary items from the room, and everything was immaculate. (To be honest, I liked the simplicity of the room, without some of the extra doilies, pillows, and frou-frou things). Special note, I stayed in room 108, which has an outside private entrance, too, which 3 of their rooms have. They also gave me a coupon to use with a discount for a future visit. Thank you, Washington House, for giving me a much needed relaxing break!

The Washington House was recommended by a family member and we so loved it! Clean, well maintained, the food was delicious and the staff was very friendly. We would go more often if it wasn't for the distance we have to travel to get there. The staff was
