We stayed in the Queen Bee suite two nights Oct 11 & 12, 2006. The room is more than comfortable, with a beautiful working fireplace, air jet whirlpool bath (spotless) and fourposter bed with the nicest linens and angel soft comforter to rest your weary head.
When you first arrive you are made to feel welcome. We were greeted by Barb, one of the owners with a warm welcome. Soft music surrounds you as you enter into a lavishly appointed parlor that is contains furniture that bekons you to sit and stay. This home is 6000+ square feet, cirra 1902, and every corner a majestic marvel. The woodwork is stunning throughout the entire house.
My husband is a Union plumber, and wants Fred, the owner, to know that the full jet body shower in our suite was elegant , installed perfectly, and is well thought out . Fred is a master plumber by trade, and his skill is more than evident.
Other nice extras: a wonderful machine right outside your room to make coffee or hot chocolate (free), unlimited microwave popcorn/ microwave use and a good selection of movies to watch in your room ( free) , and a stocked fridge with sodas or bottled water (free), and a laptop with internet ( free). I just returned from a trip to Ireland, most all places I stayed charged extra for all the above.
This is a place for couples to come and rest from hectic lifestyles, for birdlovers (Horicon Marsh is spectacular , and so close) and those who wish to be pampered. The breakfast is elegant & wonderful, and Barb should have her own cooking show. She is the midwest's "Barefoot Contessa" without a doubt. We eagerly looked forward to her morning feast. You will not leave the breakfast table hungry! PERIOD.
