My wife and I stayed there as an alternative to other B&B's in neighboring towns. We liked the idea of being two blocks from the lake and the downtown shopping and restaurants. The B&B was kept up very well with not a sign of aging in the inside or outside of the building. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean...

After reading the glowing review left by ScubaDiver9184, we couldn't help wondering about the disparity between the review and the rating, so we contacted ScubaDiver9184 who assured us that the rating was in error and he had already contacted TripAdvisor of the error. That was Monday morning and it is now Wednesday and no correction has appeared. In the meantime,...

With a balcony with views of the lake and Pier light. Walking distance to town. The view was spectacular. Breakfast was delicious and our Hosts Dave and Rita were wonderful. We will...

We stayed at the Port Washington Inn recently to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary - it had been recommended by my sister. What a beautiful inn, with such warm and welcoming hosts! Rita welcomed us as we arrived a little bit before 3:00 PM. Complimentary parking just behind the inn made it easy for us to enter and climb the...

We were only able to stay one night, but we certainly found our new "home base" for vacations mid-way along the coast of Lake Michigan. This turn-of-the-century home has been modernized without any loss of it's turn-of-the-century charm. Quiet. Relaxing. Comfortable. From the moment we arrived, we felt pampered. An evening out around town, a great night's sleep, and then...

Wonderful hosts are very knowledgeable and know how to run a B@B. They do it right, especially at Breakfast. Only three blocks from the Ozaukee Interurban Bike trail which makes it a perfect location for serious bikers. We rode the paved trail to Cedarburg and enjoyed the weekend!!

Six night stay. Fantastic experience; great location; great get-away lodging. We wanted a place that was quiet but close to town and we got exactly what we hoped for. Rita and Dave were the perfect hosts and breakfasts were terrific. We were in the Dorothy Room but all queen bed room were lovely.

Thank you, Robin, first for choosing Port Washington Inn for your trip to our area, secondly for the kind words you have shared about your experience of your time at Port Washington Inn. For some, Robin's referral to a 'beautiful home' might pose questions because the term 'B & B' (Bed and Breakfast) has become a generic term applied to...

The complimentary beverage centers, homemade treats, and generous common areas inside and outside the inn receive high marks with our guests.
