The Schroeder House, located three buildings north of the Washington House Inn, was home to the Schroeder family for 136 years. Juergen Schroeder, a Cedarburg Wisconsin merchant, commissioned the house to be built in 1856. The Schroeder family lived in the house until 1993 and in 1994, the house was purchased and completely renovated into five, private guest rooms.
Exquisitely private by design, these five guest rooms sit apart from the main inn structure. A short 1/2 block from the activity of those 29 main Inn rooms, this Wisconsin bed and breakfast has the intimacy and feel of a separate carriage house. All accommodations feature walk in showers, in addition to oversized tubs (Rooms 2,4,5 are in room tubs). Each room is thoughtfully appointed with antiques, whirlpool tubs for two, and fireplaces. Located behind the house is a shared garden area, perfect for morning coffee and tranquil relaxation.
