2013 Harley Davidson 110th Reunion Lodging June 14, 2013

Located 30 minutes north of Milwaukee, Port Washington shares Lake Michigan’s shoreline and is known for its picturesque setting and its charter fishing industry.  The lakefront is the focal point of the community affording visitors and residents a well-kept marina, 4 parks overlooking the waterfront, one of only two art deco lighthouses in the U.S., a restored 1860 Light Station open for touring, kayak and canoe launch from South Beach, and groomed beach below Upper Lake Park to the north of the marina.   The historic downtown parallels the lakeshore on Franklin Street and reaches west on Grand Avenue.  This ‘little city of seven hills’ has stairs up and down the hills that create shortcuts from one destination to another.  It is a perfectly walkable location that guests of the Port Washington Inn appreciate!

August 30th from 3:00-11:00 Port Washington’s Rock the Harbor Festival celebrates visitors to the 2013 Harley Davidson 110th Reunion.   Traditionally, Port Washington hosts as many of the Harley Davidson reunions’ visitors as find rooms here.

Port Washington Inn blocked out the dates of August 28th through September 1st to allow guests flexibility in determining which four nights work best for them; we offer a FREE fifth night.

Because these dates are high demand dates, our policies are as follows:

1) 50% nonrefundable deposit upon making the reservation

2) Balance due 30 days in advance of your arrival; also nonrefundable

3) Room is booked to a maximum of two people (the same two people for the duration of the stay) ***

***The Top of the World Suite can accommodate three people each with their own bed (additional person charge  of $75/night applies)


Call us with any questions or to make a reservation:  262-284-5583


We would love to share the peaceful privacy and generous hospitality of Port Washington Inn with you,
