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.
