Mayville Inn
Ranked #1 of 2 Mayville B&B and Inns
Reviewed 10 October 2012

Fall is a magical time when views from the Inn are aflame in oranges, reds, and yellows. To have breakfast by a window and spot a variety of birds at the feeder or to catch a glimpse of a red-tailed hawk gliding by is a wondrous way to start the day. We ate the complimentary continental breakfast in the Gathering Room, a community room--comfy sofas, a couple of tables by windows, a stand full of books for leisure reading and real plants, not fake dusty things. These are the small details that make this place like home.

The room we stayed in was clean and spacious. The bed was the best bed away from bed—crispy clean and offered a sound sleep. Our room faced the road and I was worried about traffic sound at night, and either I fell into a deep sleep or the traffic died down or it was good insulation, but I wasn’t awaken by the blare of a truck or the droning whisper of passing cars (and I’m a light sleeper). The other half of our party had a room away from the street which looked out over a field and fall trees, definitely quieter.

It’s nice to walk into a place and not have to check in with a disengaged desk clerk at a sterile counter who hands you a key card. Jim Klawitter was very inviting and helpful, as was the rest of the staff. Since we didn’t know the area, he took the time to give us useful suggestions for eateries, etc. Jane Klawitter welcomed our group and since we had family visiting from Central America, they were invited to place a pin on their country on a wall map. The map was dotted with pins from all over the U.S. and the world.

If you’re looking for a unique stay away from the cookie-cutter-chain-hotels and motels, this is the place and for the price—this is the place. This little gem is certainly a doorway to the great Horicon Marshes (Horicon Education Center is just 2 miles down the road), and even if you’re not there for the marshes, it’s a great place to stay and relax, and shake the city out of you.

I must admit, I am a clean freak and hate staying in hotels. After reading positive reviews about this motel and seeing the inexpensive nightly rates, I made a reservation for 2 nights for my husband and myself. I was very impressed with this place...The Mayville Inn surpassed my cleanliness standards! The place was spotless; sheets and towels smelled and looked clean, and I wasn't afraid to walk on the carpeting or sit on the bedspread. The staff was happy to share the local 'must visit' sights and restaurant locations. My husband and I were pleased with everything they recommended. Sherwood Restaurant had a great breakfast and Iron Ridge Restaurant had a fantastic, fresh, reasonably priced Tuesday night buffet. Kayaking on the Horicon Marsh was breathtaking. Mayville Inn is located at the edge of town off of the main road, so we felt completely safe leaving our kayaks on the roof of the van overnight. If you would like a CLEAN place without a high price, this is the spot for you! (FYI~I don't recommend fishing on the Rock River unless you enjoy catching carp and bullhead.)

Room Tip: Our 2nd floor room overlooked a large rural area. It was very peaceful.

Have stayed here several times in the past. Had a first floor room near the lobby which is under the stairs and a little noisy. Recommend a second floor room awy from the lobby area. Bed was fine, but the air conditioner kept cycling on and off every few minutes, sometimes waking me. TV was old style, but had a good cable selection. Continental Breakfast is good, but seemed a little downsized from the past, although I may be wrong on that. Staff are great. Thought the rate of $70 was high for the area and the quality. Would recommend to others.

a comfortable, well appointed cross between a hotel and a bed and breakfast, and you cannot beat the rates. This was actually our second stay and I can't imagine not returning when we are visiting in Horicon.

We stayed at the Mayville Inn in early December, and the place was beautifully decorated for the holidays and it felt like home. We saved at least fifty dollars by staying here compared to comparable hotels in Madison or Milwaukee. What a find!

On our first visit to Horicon Marsh we decided to include a boat ride with Blue Heron boat tours. While making boat reservations we asked about local places to stay. One of the recommended options was the Mayville Inn.
It is located about midway on the eastside of the marsh and only a short distance to the new educational center.
The rooms were nice, large, clean, and quiet. There is a living room for all to use, which is a nice amenity for the family owned inn. There is a continental breakfast, but all are welcome to use the microwave in the breakfast area. We brought instant oatmeal, which hit the spot. A good size refrigerator was in the room. Also a McDonalds is just a few blocks away and the small town of Mayville has other eateries. The owner went out of her way to help by recommending places to eat. In addition, she helped us plan our visit to the marsh and the best places to see birds in our limited time by outlining a map so it would be easy to follow.
Our only regret is that we could have used an extra day at the Inn to visit more of the marsh…next time we will stay longer.

We've been staying here every year since 2001 for the annual Air Venture event at Oshkosh in July. I stumbled across the Mayville Inn after a disastrous stay at a chain hotel in Appleton the first year we attended the event. What a wonderful find it was! We have never met more accomodating hosts than the Klawitter family. You're greeted at the door with chocolate chip cookies (our granddaughter grabs them first on the way in the door) and a friendly smile. They not only provide a clean comfortable room at a fair price, but are quick to answer any questions you may have.

They have the "library" if you care to have a drink after your day of work/fun, and also a bird watching room adjacent to the library. The town of Mayville is also a fave of ours and my wife says it reminds her of the small town in Oklahoma where she was raised. We recommend the Back Street Cafe in Mayville for breakfast and the buffet and the Iron Ridge Restaurant in Iron Ridge (aprox. 6 mi. away) is the best meal you'll likely find next to Mom's.

We highly recommend the Mayville Inn if your travels take you to this area. We will return as long as we continue to travel to Oshkosh because it's just like coming home.....
