We chose the Waterbury Inn for its spacious rooms, full kitchens and flexibility. The property is really nice - it would be a great base for a long-term stay in Door Country. It definitely has the feel of an apartment home rather than a hotel. There are indoor and outdoor pools, playground, arcade and a small fitness room (be mindful... More

Thank you for choosing the Waterbury Inn and for your feedback. While we're nt in the center of downtown Ephraim, it's important to note that we are directly on highway 42 and centrally located in the peninsula. We are within walking distance of ten shopping venues, two galleries, mini golf and two restaurants...some as close as across the street and... More

This is a go-to spot for our family in Door County. It's mid-range in price and located between the busier (and more expensive) villages of Sister Bay and Fish Creek. This is a family-owned and run hotel, and (I believe) has several units that are owned as condos. It has two swimming pools (one indoor, one outdoor) that are small... More

Thank you for continuing to choose the Waterbury Inn and for your review. We love that we are able to convey the feeling of a family run inn. Our core staff indeed feels like our 'Waterbury family'. But in truth, the Waterbury Inn is a 46 unit condo resort where each unit is individually owned. The resort itself is run... 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!

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
