The Inn is newly decorated andf the staff is very friendly and attentive. Great water view from all rooms. Location is very good as Ehraim is a quiet village and you can walk to restaurants. We stayed 4 nights and were sorry to leave.

Staying at The Water Street Inn was one of the best hotel stays we've ever had. Everything is new and very clean. The hotel grounds are very nice and so peaceful. The view from your room can't be beat. We will definitely be back.

Renovated hotel just open. Room was spacious and all new furniture with a large shower. Quiet place. All rooms face the water which is a huge plus . Nightly bonfire, walk to restaurants and they have a private pier. Reasonably priced. We will be back.

We appreciate the review and positive feedback. Just an update on the AC systems, there was a factory setting that would reprogram the system to go back to the initial settings. Shortly after your stay we found this out and have reprogrammed all rooms so the AC/heat stays at the desired temperature. There is also a dehumidify setting to reduce... More
