2015 PGA Tournament Lodging at Port Washington Inn: 5th night FREE! February 9, 2015

August 2015 will be an exciting time as the PGA Tournament revisits Whistling Straits just 30 minutes north of Port Washington! That 30 minutes can be considered a ‘buffer zone’ between the congestion of an event of this magnitude and the laid back access to Lake Michigan at Port Washington.

Port Washington Inn is a bed and breakfast in the truest sense: an historic home that now accommodates and pleases guests (check our TripAdvisor reviews)! We have blocked out eight nights (August 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17) in order to allow guests to choose the 4 nights they deem essential plus a 5TH FREE NIGHT…..yes, that is four paid nights plus a 5th night FREE!

Because the nature of this event makes it a high demand event in our area, the policies applicable to booking these dates differ from our routine policies.

POLICIES FOR THE 2015 PGA DATES ARE AS FOLLOWS:

1) Each guestroom will accommodate a maximum of 2 people (and the reservation assumes the same two people over the duration of the reservation)

2) A 50% NONREFUNDABLE DEPOSIT is required at the time of booking

3) Balance of the reservation total is due April 30th, 2015. Any existing reservation cancelled by this date will receive a credit certificate in the amount of the deposit; the credit certificate is good for one year from the date of issue. Cancellations after April 30, 2015 will not qualify for credit certificates.

The five guestrooms at Port Washington Inn include en suite bathrooms and rates are as follows:

Top of the World Suite and Grace’s Suite: $249/night (available August 15/16/17 only)

Dorothy’s Room: $199/night X 4 = $796 + tax
(when taking advantage of the 5th free night, this room = $159.20/night + tax)

Helen’s Room and Noelle’s Room: $189/night X 4 = $756+ tax
(when taking advantage of the 5th free night = $151.20/night + tax)

All stays include WIFI throughout the inn, a full breakfast in our formal dining room plus early morning coffee service (only the best coffee!!), access to a beverage center throughout your stay, common areas both inside and outside the inn, and off-street parking (no parking hassles). The inn is 3-5 blocks from everything downtown including restaurants, shops, the marina, parks, the 1860 Light Station/Museum, the Interurban bike trail throughout Ozaukee County, and parks along Lake Michigan’s shores…..and the Port Washington Exploreum which opens this spring!

Lake Michigan has the effect of lengthening the season of autumn along its shorelines; a hike through Lions Den Gorge or Harrington Beach State Park will nourish your senses with their natural beauty.

These photos were taken October 20, 2012 at Lions Den Gorge where leaves had fallen to create a carpet of autumn colors underfoot while random wildflowers still bloomed and some golden leaves held fast to a tree along the beach. Along the trail vibrant orange leaves proclaimed the season!

Celebrate July at Port Washington Inn July 2, 2013

 

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!
