Tall ship Denis Sullivan to visit Port Washington repeatedly this summer! May 29, 2015

Tall ships have been a main attraction of Port Washington festivals, but this summer the tall ship Denis Sullivan will be visiting Port Washington June 25-29, July 4 & 5, and August 21-23! This is great news as so many of our guests over the years have expressed interest in getting out on Lake Michigan.

Take advantage of the multiple night discounts at Port Washington Inn to fully enjoy the pleasures of Port any time. You won’t want to miss visiting the Port Exploreum (newly opened April 21, 2015). And your tastebuds will be happy if you allow them ample time to savor the flavors of Port (BALTICA BISTRO, DAILY BAKING CO., CHOCOLATE CHISEL are just the beginning!)

Port Washington’s claim to fame has always been its maritime heritage and the presence of the Denis Sullivan pays tribute to that as does the newly opened Port Exploreum. Happily, Port’s architectural history is also being honored by the restoration of distinctive buildings.

Port Washington Inn’s building was originally a home built in 1903 by George & Eva Blessing who moved here from Chicago. They built this lovely home on Sweetcake Hill; the house began life as a bed and breakfast in 1991.

Next week we will begin our 20th season as owners/operators of the inn; over the course of our time here, it has been our mission not only to welcome guests to the inn but also to restore ‘this old house’ and to create landscaping to honor it. We truly feel that George and Eva Blessing created a home with a welcoming presence which we are privileged to share with our bed and breakfast guests. We invite you to Port Washington Inn!

Take advantage of the autumn leaves at Port Washington Inn; HR now available this weekend! October 17, 2014

Sometimes opportunity knocks and the opportunity is too good to pass up; consider this scenario:

The leaves are glorious, but not forever. You know that, and yet you haven’t had the chance to get out and enjoy the autumn color.

Friday and Saturday and Sunday are available, so book one, two, or three nights; save 15% on two nights or 25% on three nights!

p.s. did we mention that HR has an electric fireplace stove?

This year the daylilies and lavender seem prepared to greet the month of August with fanfare as long as moderate temperatures prevail; hot weather will no doubt incline them to ‘march to a different drummer’. So, catch that fleeting opportunity for a summer getaway before the season disappears! Summer is ‘on a march’!

Just a reminder that we give you 15% off a two night stay and 25% off three or more nights, even during peak season!
