Port Washington Inn is a four room bed and breakfast in the truest sense of the term. The inn was built in 1903 as the private home of George and Eva Blessing. The original character of the home has been preserved during the extensive restoration it has undergone during our time here (we are now in our 22nd season of incepting). A stay at Port Washington Inn will provide peaceful privacy and generous hospitality, and food to nourish body and soul. Dave's excellent early morning coffee and a full breakfast prepared from scratch and served buffet style in our formal dining room get our guests' day off to a great start. GIVEN ADVANCE NOTICE, WE ARE ABLE TO PROVIDE HIGH QUALITY FOODS FOR THOSE FOLLOWING A GRAIN-FREE, GLUTEN-FREE, LOW-CARB, OR DAIRY FREE DIET. We routinely serve breakfast meat(s) separately so NO ADVANCED NOTICE IS REQUIRED TO ACCOMMODATE A VEGETARIAN DIETARY PREFERENCE. The complimentary beverage centers, homemade treats, and generous common areas inside and outside the inn receive high marks with our guests. ALL GUESTROOMS HAVE QUEEN BEDS, ENSUITE BATHS, COMFORTABLE SEATING FOR TWO, LIGHTING TO SUPPORT READING. We invite you to experience the peaceful privacy and generous hospitality which bring guests back again and again. Secure WIFI access and good mobile phone reception will keep you connected during your time away. Take advantage of our multiple night discounts!

Very clean room, beautiful home, made-from-scratch breakfast food and a beautiful little town will make your stay memorable. Dave and Rita also provide helpful advice about restaurants in the community.

Truth be told, we would like to be able to welcome guests to lovely weather as well as to a lovely inn. When weather inclines guests to stay inside, the value of the common areas of the inn comes into focus; what a different place this would be without those generous common areas. The community of Port Washington offers visitors a generous variety of quality experiences; we are grateful to be part of such a community!

Hosts and home were lovely. Breakfast, evening baked goods, and morning coffee were wonderful. Almost all food is homemade. Hope to return and take advantage of the nearby bicycle trails. Cute town and close to Milwaukee.

We stay at the Port Washington Inn whenever we get the chance. We are always treated like well-loved family members. Everything about the Inn is warm and welcoming, especially Dave & Rita! The homemade breakfasts are wonderful and so is the welcome homemade treat in the room.

As travelers, we highly appreciate finding wonderful food, coffee, and tea. Naturally we imagine that our guests feel the same, so offering generous hospitality at PWI has always involved offering the same hospitality to our guests as we offer to our family. The dining room of PWI is a happy place just as the kitchen is a busy place! Recently guests accustomed to being charged for any 'treats' available at a lodging establishment, expressed their delight at discovering that at PWI the rate we charge includes all of the amenities we offer; generous common areas and complimentary beverage centers as well as a full breakfast and daily homemade treats are 'staus quo' at PWI; we wouldn't want it any other way!

We recently enjoyed a relaxing stay in this lovely inn which rates 5+ Stars for comfort and amenities. We were a party of three, so the Top of the World Suite was perfect for us. The innkeepers are warm hosts and good cooks. They gave us excellent advice on some dinner

It is heartwarming to hear from our guests that their stay at PWI would incline them to return; it is our mission that our inn relfect positively upon guests' time spent in our community. Kudos to the Port Washington Historical Society for their significant contributions to our community and kudos to the Port Washington Tourism Council and Ozaukee County Tourism Council who help visitors find and enjoy Port Washington and Ozaukee County Wisconsin.

"We stayed in Dorothy's Room, and even with the leaves on the trees we could still see Lake Michigan."
"A beverage area is provided along with really good coffee in the morning outside your room (second floor)."
