John is one of our new part time employees and it is nice receiving feed back from guests. I will go over with him to make sure he is letting guests know about our check out procedures at check in. Thank you for letting me know that John did a great job. Right now Door County is battle severe humidity...

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...

I am glad you enjoyed your Door County vacation. I hope you do make the Waterbury Inn your annual get away. If at any point you would need a two bedroom and can't do the stairs we have three of the deluxe units on our main floor. These go quickly and suggest booking a year out. Thank you for the...

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...

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. This year we did change our laundry service which provides us with higher quality linens fluffier towels and crisp sheets. Our outdoor pool is heated to 75 degrees and depending on how hot...

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. We stayed in Unit 109 and it was perfect for our needs, just as the receptionist promised --- separate bedroom, full kitchen and a nice private deck overlooking the woods. The...

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. They have everything in there down to mixing bowls and...

I am glad you enjoyed your stay. Our owners have done several updates in the past five years. Carpet was replaced four years ago.

We've stayed here many times on annual family reunions. This is the first time back in 5 years and it has slipped a little. The rooms are nice, but getting a little old in decor. Not much has changed in the 20 years we've been coming here. It's clean though and well taken care of. The grounds used to be...

The Waterbury Inn has changed several items in the past four years. In March of 2016 we replaced sofa sleepers, chairs (in deluxe units), faux wood blinds, lamps and all the kitchens received all new dishes. For our guests convenience we also put up our own wifi tower this past 2015/2016 to accommodate the growing demand for wifi and all...

For me, as a former property manager, cleanliness is paramount. The Waterbury Inn gets a gold star in this department. Even the very comfortable mattresses are completely zipped into a protective cover. The suite had a nicely equipped (spotless) kitchen, flat screen tv, patio, separate bedroom (white sheets- important to me) and spacious bath with plenty of grab bars. Chairs...

We chose the Waterbury Inn for its spacious rooms, full kitchens and flexibility. The property is really nice - it would be a great base for a long-term stay in Door Country. It definitely has the feel of an apartment home rather than a hotel. There are indoor and outdoor pools, playground, arcade and a small fitness room (be mindful...

Thank you for choosing the Waterbury Inn and for your feedback. While we're nt in the center of downtown Ephraim, it's important to note that we are directly on highway 42 and centrally located in the peninsula. We are within walking distance of ten shopping venues, two galleries, mini golf and two restaurants...some as close as across the street and...

This is a go-to spot for our family in Door County. It's mid-range in price and located between the busier (and more expensive) villages of Sister Bay and Fish Creek. This is a family-owned and run hotel, and (I believe) has several units that are owned as condos. It has two swimming pools (one indoor, one outdoor) that are small...

Thank you for continuing to choose the Waterbury Inn and for your review. We love that we are able to convey the feeling of a family run inn. Our core staff indeed feels like our 'Waterbury family'. But in truth, the Waterbury Inn is a 46 unit condo resort where each unit is individually owned. The resort itself is run...
