Port Washington Inn

If good food is important to you, you will be happy at Port Washington Inn!  Our guests repeatedly tell us so and come back for more. Real food doesn't just happen; it is the result of excellent ingredients, time, and love.  You can taste the difference and your body can feel the difference.  Come taste the love in the food we prepare for you!

The Port Washington Inn is proud to be named one of the Top Ten Eco Elegant Inns of Wisconsin in 2010! Throughout our tenure as innkeepers (beginning 1996), we have made concerted efforts to align our property with environmentally friendly and efficient practices. It's a process that can be fun and rewarding. We'll share our successes with you (but only if you ask)!

Good food, well prepared, is important to us and to our guests. "Buy Local, Buy Wisconsin" is fitting; it is what we do! And we share our resources with our guests when they are interested. The farmer's markets throughout the area are our favorite haunts along with local orchards and berry farms. We've pinpointed the locations of our favorites on a Google Map on our website blog.

Although Port Washington often feels air conditioned in comparison to the surrounding countryside, there are still those times when humidity and temperatures combine to make AC desirable. Our Unico air handling system allows us to circulate fresh air or to condition the air throughout the building. Ceiling fans and versatile window treatments allow guests to further control their guestroom environment. Our hot water radiators are quiet and cozy; each guestroom is also equipped with auxiliary electric heat.

Relax into the peaceful privacy and generous hospitality of the historic Port Washington Inn. Set in a quiet residential neighborhood, this bed and breakfast inn enjoys distinctively framed views of Lake Michigan from its perch on Sweetcake Hill. Port Washington Inn offers guests a peaceful location away from traffic while being only 3-5 blocks from Port Washington's Historic District, restaurants, shops, parks, lighthouse museum, bike trail, and beach.
