this was a very good location. Our room had everything we could need and it was very private. This was a great place to start and end the day. The person at the front desk was very helpful with recommending a place to have an exciting Fish Boil and pointing out some interesting drives.

Very nice place, with fireplace burning all the time, big TV in sitting area. People brought down their own refreshments to watch football. Staff was extremely helpful with directions and restaurant recommendations. Loved The Mink Basin Cafe!

Waterbury Inn was perfect for my first stay in Door County. The staff were all friendly and helpful. I love that the suite had a kitchen and living area, like you had your own little apartment.

Thank you for your review. We try very hard to accommodate guest requests. Most of our one bedroom units are on our main floor. We do have three two bed units on our main floor as well however these are highly requested so it pays to book way in advance. Our rooms have seen a lot of traffic this season.... More

The place we usually book in Door County was full. We were a little disappointed but the Waterbury Inn was wonderful. It is far enough away from the "hot spots" to be quiet and restful, but close enough to get just about anywhere in a few minutes. The staff is very friendly and extremely accommodating.
