Ye Olde Manor House Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 2 Elkhorn B&B and Inns
Reviewed 23 July 2008

Just came back from a lovely stay at the Ole Manor House in Elkhorn, Wisconsin. Though this was my first time at this property I have many years of experience at B&Bs all over North America and Europe. This is one of the most charming B&Bs and certainly the most gracious hosts I have encountered.

This splendid, well maintained old home, together with the 3 acres of grass, trees, benches, chairs and even a few meandering deer, is an oasis of peace and old world charm.

The house, lovely restored and maintained by previous owners, and even more so by the new owners, John Anderson and Karen Fulbright-Anderson, takes you back to a quieter, slower pace of life.

John and Karen are splendid hosts and fascinating people to just sit around and chat with. The breakfast they carefully prepare is outstanding.

Elkhorn is centrally located. My primary daily distination was Lake Geneva and I found the fifteen minute drive easy and pleasant.

I was impressed with the entire lake area in this part of Wis. I will visit again...and will definitely stay with John and Karen at their lovely home.

The absolutely best breakfast we have ever had in a B&B! Stuart, who is originally from England, served us his own homemade sausage, homemade Andama bread, homemade soda bread, homemade lemon marmalade, homemade potato chips (!), with scrambled eggs, fruit cup with yogurt and granola, juice, coffee...
Stuart and Carol were also great fun to talk to.
We biked the Elkhorn-Lyons trail (rails-to-trails --in other words easy, flat trail) but there are also excellent mountain bike trails in the nearby Kettle Moraine state forest for the more adventurous bikers.

Settled in a wooded area off Hwy.12 across from Lauderdale Lakes, lies a large home that houses 2 wonderful people. The food is a delight and the old English hospitality is truly a comfort.
