You can't get much better than this. What a charming, warm and comfortable place to stay in a wonderful little town! The staff could not be any nicer, always smiling, offering suggestions and help with anything. The rooms are all decorated differently, always clean and inviting. Varieties of wine from a local winery and cheese assortments from the area helped... More

My husband and I truly had a wonderful time here. The room was so clean and cozy. The wine happy hour was a nice touch to all the fun places to visit in Cedarburg. Loved the breakfast that was also included. The staff was very nice and pleasant. We picked a beautiful fall evening to get away for a night.

Second time in two years that we have stayed here. Both times the staff could not have been nice. Nice touch with the Happy Hour. Breakfast food yummy! Stayed in a very rustic room the first time. This past weekend stayed in a quaint room decorated like my grandma;s house used to be. Clean room. The sheets are to die... More

I have stayed at the Washington House Inn many, many times. It's a place I keep coming back to because it has warmth, the staff is welcoming and the rooms & food are wonderful. It feels like an old time inn in Wisconsin - I guess because it is one!

As always, the two nights were wonderful. The perfect place to unwind, relax, and enjoy small town Wisconsin. Only 30 minute drive to downtown Milwaukee, but in a quaint town of Cedarburg. Many shops to visit, wine to taste, great breakfasts at the Washington House. Can't wain for our next trip.

I took this weekend trip with my sister for some shopping and getaway time. It was a wonderful, charming hotel. The history of the hotel and each room being different was very unique. Our room was wonderful and it was nice to have 2 different entrances; one being from the outside. Beds were so comfortable and yes the sheets are... More

Found this place on line and was very delighted. Cute and affordable and the staff is so nice. The food was great too. Definitely coming back. Please check this place out before you get stuck at the local motel 6. So worth it.

We were fortunate enough to have won a free overnight from the Inn. Yes we are proof that one can win something by viewing their great website. Winners are limited to specific rooms. We chose a beautiful room (212) with a corner whirlpool. I guess I didn't realize that it was also the shower for the room. Based on that... More

This inn has it's charms. Those include the architecture, exposed stone walls and beams, period decorations and memorabilia. The room that we were in (212) was spacious and overall comfortable. The fireplace was a plus as was the bed, linens and towels. We agree with other travelers that the bathrooms are a bit dated and could definitely use more light.... More

We selected one of the smaller rooms in this inn. The inn's decor was tasteful and soothing throughout, and our room was no exception. The vanity being in the bedroom was a little surprising, but it worked out fine. Nice multi-head shower. The bed was very comfortable. If we had been staying another night I would have asked for softer... More
