Around the country, people will jockey for position to watch fireworks in celebration of July 4th. After 19  years as innkeepers of the Port Washington Inn, we tend to take for granted our ability to enjoy Port Washington’s fireworks from the comfort of the inn….or the front porch….or the lawn. We love our location and our guests do, too!

Prime real estate for viewing the fireworks from Port Washington Inn is the private balcony of Grace’s Suite and the sitting room of Top of the World Suite; guests also report viewing fireworks from Dorothy’s Room.

Our Two Nights Are Better Than One Special gives you 15% off a two night stay;

Stay Longer and you receive 25% off three or more nights!

Whether you are coming to Port Washington for an excursion on the tall ship Denis Sullivan (in our harbor July 4 & 5), for charter fishing, canoeing or kayaking, strolling the beach, or exploring the Interurban Trail, you will likely be making plans to return to take in the additional outdoor opportunities you didn’t have time for on your first visit.  This is a place rich in history and intent upon honoring its history (visit the amazing Port Exploreum). Good things are happening here; come check us out!

 

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!
