Recently I stayed at the Water Street Inn. It has been remodeled and is a very nice facility. They have one of the finest views of the water anywhere in Door County. The large porch is a real plus. The rooms are very nice and the beds were extremely comfortable. I am disappointed that they do not have a microwave... More

Our room was lovely, faced the Bay and was extremely clean! Wonderful chocolates left on our beds every day. We highly recommended this Inn and the prices are very reasonable! This Inn is destined to become a "Book a year in advance Inn."

We booked late (only 3 weeks before our trip) and was told on the phone that it was not a problem to get a room. We even received a second floor room that has a gorgeous view of the bay. We highly recommend the Water Street Inn for its very friendly staff, wonderful location, cleanliness, and heated pool. Plus it... More

An absolute pleasure to sit outside on the balcony area. Rooms were immaculate, beds were wonderfully comfortable. Keurig coffee maker with assortment of coffees provided in room. Refrigerator had bottled water inside... More

We've been going to Door County with a group of good friends for many years, always staying at what now is the Water Street Inn. The renovations are fantastic, and we all were so pleased with the room updates, the fire in the evening, and the lovely pool area. Thank you, Water Street Inn, for helping us to make more... More

My only complaint is that there is no microwave in the room. But the lovely receptionist warmed my heat pack in the office for me. Great location, pretty view, fun things to do right on the property. Such as the pool, fireplace, and corn-hole toss.

Great location for beautiful sunsets. Everyone was very nice and visibly enjoyed their jobs. Great linens with pillows and beds being very comfortable. Great value. Rooms are spacious. Love the AC over the vanity for getting ready to go out.

The Water Street Inn has been renovated and newly-owned by a couple since last year. Although, we never stayed there before they took over, I understand the Inn has changed for the better. We agree! Although it was off-season in May and the pool was not available for use, the room we were in was cozy, very clean, had great... More
