We rented a one BR condo with a small balcony, on the first floor. It was very quiet, fairly clean, with basic amenities. Nice living area for 2; bedroom small, but fine for a short stay. Full kitchen, frig, microwave. We ate 2 meals in and dinner out. Owner was very helpful with recommendations for dining and help with wifi.... More

Thank you for your review. All of our units have full kitchens whether you have a deluxe or studio unit. We have a indoor pool (set at 85 degrees), hot tub (102 degrees) and outdoor pool (set at 82 degrees). Our resort has a wonderful central location. So glad you had a relaxing stay. More

The place we usually book in Door County was full. We were a little disappointed but the Waterbury Inn was wonderful. It is far enough away from the "hot spots" to be quiet and restful, but close enough to get just about anywhere in a few minutes. The staff is very friendly and extremely accommodating. One of them recommended a... More

My spouse and I decided to try a different place to stay on this trip. We decided on the Waterbury Inn in Ephraim. The inn looked very nice on the exterior as we arrived. Check in was fine. The first thing that was disturbing to us as we entered Room 103 was the state of the carpet. There were multiple... More

Thank you for your feedback. Door County as a whole has had another record year of visitors. In September, we normally have a slow down during the week and are able to have a carpet cleaning crew come in to professionally clean the peak season spills and stains which we are unable to remove ourselves. This has not been the... More

We had a great time in Door County, and the Waterbury Inn was exactly what we needed to launch a great vacation. Four adults and two children enjoyed the loft room with balcony. Kitchen was sufficient; we ate all but 2 meals in house. Our grandchildren loved the ping pong table, giant checkers, available games, pool. The location was perfect... More

We have been coming here for years. The service was good considering they had lost their college crew. The suite was nice, but this particular one had a very large bathroom and a very tight bedroom. The sheets were rougher than those I remember in the past. The outdoor pool also seemed a little colder. Overall, you get a good... More

Thank you for choosing the Waterbury Inn again. We do have four one bedroom deluxe units that have larger bathrooms as they are configured for handicap accessible.

My sister and I chose the Waterbury Inn as we were traveling with our elderly mother and wanted a suite with a separate bedroom and no stairs to climb.

Stayed here for several nights in August. I've stayed here a few times before but it's been years. The combination of the full kitchen, suite with loft, and both indoor & outdoor pools was what made it a perfect spot for our family. Pro's: The kitchens really are fully stocked.
