Around the Corner at Port Washington Inn April 2, 2013

Thursday March 28th was the first public television airing of the Around the Corner with John McGivern Show highlighting Port Washington! There was a premier viewing earlier in the week to which participants and local residents were invited. We are impressed!! We are especially honored to be the very first bed and breakfast to be invited to participate on their show.

Maybe you are already a fan of the show, but in case you miss the airings on public television, it can be viewed from this link link any time.

The show alludes to “Premo, the beer that made Milwaukee furious”. Port Washington Inn was built in 1903 by George and Eva Blessing who owned the Port Brewing Company that made Premo Beer!

Port Washington has a rich history, it’s true, but it’s also busy reinventing itself. You’ll see evidence to that effect everywhere you look! Truly, there is every reason to spend more time in our area these days and the reasons only increase as weather warms!

So allow us to entice you with our 15% discount on a two night stay and 25% discount on a three night stay. These discounts are in effect May through October and apply to all dates except Harley Davidson’s 110th Anniversary Reunion (August 29, 30, 31, September 1).

At this time of year, people tend to make vacation plans well into the future, but our online reservation system is set to accept online reservations only four months into the future. Give us a call if you are interested in reserving rooms for August or September, for instance, and the system won’t allow it.

May through October our online reservation system is set to High Season status. That status does not differentiate between weekend vs midweek rates and it requires a minimum stay of two nights. Sometimes a single night stay can be accommodated as last minute availability during high season, so don’t hesitate to call if you find yourself passing through the area and need a room. We’ll do our best to accommodate you.

Days are lengthening, birds are singing, the sun is moving north, and everywhere nature is about rebirth and regeneration. It’s time to plan that regenerative getaway!
