Port Washington

Port Washington, Wisconsin, an experience for the senses! This Little City of Seven Hills is visually picturesque, tranquil in pace, abundant in eateries, and friendly in nature. Take a walk to Upper Lake Park, Rotary Park, the marina, the beach. Stroll through Sauk Creek Preserve, bike, hike, or rollerblade the Interurban Trail, linger in our coffee shops and restaurants, visit our antique and specialty shops. Attend our maritime festivals featuring the tall ships that would have come and gone from this harbor in its early days! Our location is known as a jewel within the greater Milwaukee Wisconsin area. Coming to the Milwaukee area on leisure or business? Consider basing yourself in Port Washington!

Climb to the Historic 1860 Lighthouse Station via one of Port Washington’s distinctive hillside stairways. A remarkable new stairway was added in 2009 which allows access to the beach from Upper Lake Park! And as our guests walk down Washington Street, they now have a lookout deck on which to rest halfway between the inn and the lakeshore. St. Mary’s Catholic Church, a landmark atop St. Mary’s Hill at the north end of Franklin Street has appeared in ever so many photographs of downtown Port Washington. There is some debate over the highest of the seven hills but St. Mary’s with its ’stairway to heaven’ and its grand steeple claims the honors!

The Historic Walking Tour of Port Washington Wisconsin is a self-guided tour giving insight into the many original buildings that lend character to this Lake Michigan Wisconsin port town. The Port Washington Garden Club established perennial beds now maintained by Friends of Rotary Park volunteers. The results are a significantly enhanced visual experience of Port Washington’s lakefront area which encourages residents and visitors to ’stop and smell the roses’ while taking in the views of Lake Michigan.
