Liked it so much, we have future reservations to go back. Water Street Inn was so clean that I did not feel the need to wipe everything down with antibacterial wipes like I usually do. We all slept well as the beds and pillows were very comfortable. The view is beautiful and the wonderful porch is a great place to...

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...

This was our first visit to The Water Street Inn and were pleasantly surprised to find a very accommodating staff, great location, great bed and bed linens with a wonderful view of the bay. We loved that we were able to walk to several nice restaurants right in Ephraim, (soon to be the last dry city in the state). We...

The Water Street Inn in Ephraim is a wonderful place to stay at an affordable price. The views are breathtaking. All rooms face the water and the sunsets over the water are spectacular. We stayed in the fall during the peak of the fall colors and the foliage in and around Door County was splash of assorted colors. The staff...

We stayed for one night and it was very nice. The room was very clean. It had a good shower. The beds were very comfortable. The room had a Keurig machine and it took us a little time to get used to it, as we don't have one at home. It was a relaxing time. I will come back.

Wow, can't say enough about The Water Street Inn. Beautiful view, comfortable beds, clean rooms. Bathrooms are slightly small, but workable. Second floor accessible only by stairs, but we knew that going in. Again, very nice, quiet, a good night's sleep!
