“Unique and very comfortable”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

At some bed and breakfasts, you always seem to be reminded that you're staying at someone else's home. No so here. In fact, we rarely saw the owners, but the place ran like clockwork. Lots of great food at breakfast that satisfied everyone in our three-family party from kids to senior citizens. We loved the fresh fruit offerings every morning, and we got as much coffee as we could handle. The house, built in 1914, is a wonder to look at and is stuffed with lots of interesting antiques. People who are into classic Chevrolets are going to find a lot to look at as well. On the grounds outside, there are older buildings to roam around (not in) - a summer kitchen and a farmhouse, both from the 1850s. In our three-day stay, we met the owners, the Zeimers, only once, and they were friendly and willing to address any concern. The three rooms offered are large and comfortable, with private bathrooms that are well stocked with anything you might need. We hated leaving at the end of our three-night stay.

We arrived at this B&B in Hales Corners on a warm summer day ... the house itself is not air-conditioned, but the rooms have window A/C which worked fine to cool the rooms. We were welcomed by nice cookies in a dish and a note, and an entry code which worked great. Seeking something cold to drink, I soon realized the tap water there was not too tasty; bring drinks! The rooms have TV's but they are very small, we didn't use them. The house itself is a mission-style bungalow, very classic and period with stained glass lamps etc; there is a considerable amount of additional decor that is NOT period including a lot of Christmas decorations some of which did not appeal to us and I felt detracted from what the house could be. Make sure to check out the glassed-in front porch, it is unique and just not something you see built in to houses anymore!

The wifi signal was good, and the Boerner Gardens are within easy walking distance and worth the walk (look for deer at dawn and dusk!), as is a grocery store (Shop-Rite?), Noodles & Co, Starbucks, and Chipotle I believe. Weekday breakfast was laid out nicely, it was pretty, and tasty. With the water being what it is in the house, coffee-heads will want to hit Starbucks. There is not much to do in the immediate area of Hales Corners, but Milwaukee is a quick 15 minutes away or so. I would recommend this B&B if you are looking for somewhere to stay near Milwaukee and you enjoy historic homes.

Room Tip: The Santa Room / Sled Room was a little cramped feeling with angled ceilings and holiday decor. The...

My husband and I, my sister and her husband, and my brother and his wife stayed here during a family reunion weekend. We were all exceptionally pleased with the house, our rooms, our gracious hosts, and the generous continental weekday breakfast. The weekend breakfast was the largest we have ever been served at a B & B and it was quite good. We really enjoyed being able to come in at any hour to relax and have the living area to ourselves. We especially enjoyed "down time", drinking complimentary wine on the long enclosed porch or visiting in the large living room admiring the Prairie style antiques and stained glass. The more we heard about the motels our relatives were staying in near the airport, the more we appreciated this gem of a B & B!

Room Tip: The large room on the front of the house upstairs is a very spacious suite with fireplace and sittin...

Home with 3 suites - excellent "soundproofing", never heard the other two couples in their suites. Private baths, large rooms, unlike many B&B that have too-small bedrooms for queen beds. Weekday continental breakfast included large dish of fresh fruit combo of strawberries, blueberries, kiwi, blackberries, etc. Cereal choices, yogurt, homemade pastry (different every day and definitely not from the grocery store), juices and hot tea and coffees. No styrofoam here - all glass and china. Hugh variety and quantity, hot breakfasts made by hosts on the weekend. There was no way we could eat all that was on our plate - filled by hosts. Large living room, enclosed front porch, TV and wi-fi, loaded bookshelves and antiques and period pieces throughout. What more could you want.

Myself and several girlfriends stayed here for my bachelorette party and had a really great visit. The rooms were cute, clean and very comfortable. The front porch made for a great place to unwind after our day. Breakfast was amazing! We would be happy to come back here in the future.

The owners couldn't have been friendlier in emails and phone calls. They were very accommodating to my need for a cool room. When I arrived (past 10 pm), the air conditioner had been set to cool my room (the Prairie Room) and the result was that I slept like a log. The air conditioner masked any street noise. The bed was very comfortable and the sheets were heavenly. The house is so charming Very substantial continental breakfast.

Room Tip: The Prairie Room borders a fairly busy street, so if you need a quieter room, choose one of the othe...

We've celebrated two anniversaries at the Lawson House, in June of 2010 and again 2012. It is a very quite home, despite being located on a main road, a very comfortable, clean and relaxing place to spend time. The home is located near Milwaukee, if you want to spend time downtown, and we also found plenty of things to do nearby in Hales Corner itself. The owners were so welcoming, accommodating and the food was great! We'll be going back again!!!

Room Tip: We've been in the New York Room and the Prairie Room. Both were wonderful.
