Begin your day with our deluxe continental breakfast, then take a stroll through our historic downtown in Cedarburg, Wisconsin. The Washington House, Cedarburg Wisconsin’s first inn, was founded in 1846 by Conrad Horneffer. Born in Germany in 1815, Horneffer emigrated to the United States in 1836 after learning the saddler’s trade. According to a book written about the city’s history, Horneffer came to Milwaukee in 1843 and fashioned the first leather trunk ever made there. He later settled in Cedarburg, built the Washington House and opened the first harness shop. This three story, cream city brick building operated as an inn until the 1920’. Today's Washington House Inn has been completely updated to provide an oasis of relaxation and pampered comfort as a romantic getaway. Has Launched! is a human-curated, invitation only

presentation of select historic lodging accommodations,

including bed & breakfasts, inns, hotels and lodges worldwide.


Historic lodging facilities (Stays) are demonstrably

significant to world history with respect to their architecture,

engineering, archeology or culture, as well as their location,

design, materials, workmanship, feeling or association.

Historic bed & breakfasts, inns, hotels and lodges offer

travelers a truly unique and memorable lodging experience.


They provide visitors a genuine opportunity to

connect with the past, while enjoying restful lodging,

excellent cuisine, gracious hospitality and more.


Sadly, countless historically significant structures

have been (and continue to be) lost forever.


Many of those that endure, do so largely because of the

vision, passion and dedication of devoted and enterprising

proprietors, companies and others, who (usually after great effort

and expense) offer them as living, interactive lodging facilities

reflecting the rich historical fabric within which they are woven.
