25% off 2 nights at Port Washington Inn December 6, 7, 8 November 16, 2013


The weekend of December 6-7 is a special one in our area with Christmas on the Corner in Port Washington and Christmas in the Country in Cedarburg.

CHRISTMAS ON THE CORNER: Historic Port Washington is the perfect place to celebrate a hometown Christmas. Our picture postcard setting is ideal for “Christmas on the Corner”: Magic of the Season; setting the stage for your holidays. Reindeer, carolers, in-store promotions, St. Nick, photos with Santa, a living nativity, carriage rides, strolling musicians are all a great way to spend an afternoon in early December. But that’s not all! At 6:15 is our Christmas parade, with lights, floats, and a lot of fun. After the parade, stick around downtown to watch the only winter fireworks display in the county!

CHRISTMAS IN THE COUNTRY: Christmas in the Country is a nationally recognized Folk and Fine Art Christmas boutique celebrating our 39th year. The spirit of Christmas abounds throughout this unique arts/crafts and gourmet food show. Find juried original works by nearly 50 of the finest artists from around the country!

A church Christmas program spins hilariously out of control in this Southern farce about squabbling sisters, family secrets, a surly Santa, a vengeful sheep and a reluctant Elvis impersonator. This fast-paced, funny comedy will make for the perfect holiday get-together with family, friends, and co-workers.
Menu: Pulled Pork, Chicken Fried Steak with Country Gravy, Potato Pancakes, Dirty Rice, Vegetable Blend, Memories’ Famous Fluff, Warm Corn Meal Muffins, Spinach Salad with Bacon Dressing, Bread Pudding

PWI Rose Extravaganza of  Color

PWI Rose Extravaganza of Color

Our roses seem to be competing with the upcoming 4th of July fireworks as their brilliant blossoms create an extravaganza of color! Port Washington Inn’s location four blocks uphill from Lake Michigan allows us to keep an eye on the lake, and yesterday the lake was a gorgeous blue, the perfect backdrop to the roses.

The lake views get better from the balcony of Grace’s Suite (on second floor) and the sitting room of Top of the World Suite (on third floor). But viewing the fireworks is great from Dorothy’s Room or the front porch as well.

The iris put on a great show this year and the daylilies are just beginning to open. Hydrangeas, weigela, and a mystery shrub in our yard have been adding their color and fragrance. A clematis is playing peek-a-boo amidst the roses.

Single night stays are available through July 4th, but we offer 15% discount on a two night stay and 25% discount on three or more nights! Book online or call 262-284-5583.

Celebrate some time together this July!

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,


Rita & Dave Nelson
