Walking Iron Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 1 Mazomanie B&B and Inns
Reviewed 8 July 2014

My wife and I celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary. We chose this B&B for our 2 night stay.
The Doctor's Study was very comfortable, breakfasts were great. Karisa and David were great hosts! You could tell that their attention to detail in their restoration of this beautiful house was done with love and care. We had a great stay and would highly recommend this B&B to everyone.

Visiting from UK with my two grown up daughters (via Chicago) ,Walking Iron Bed and Breakfast was the perfect place to stay in order to explore the local area including Frank Lloyd Wright 's Taliesin, the House on the Rock and Devil's Lake. Warm welcome,comfortable rooms and attentive but discreet hosts made for a delightful stay and although Mazomanie is small there are places to eat in town without having to get in the car. I have no hesitation in describing this accommodation as a great place to stay.

This was our second visit to the Walking Iron (and the only one I have ever been to). The couple that own the house are very sweet and genuine. They take time to make recommendations for your daily activities, but are not overbearing with conversation. They are very family oriented which I find refreshing as well. The gardens weren't quite blooming yet, but I can only imagine how wonderful they are in summer.

The room we stayed in had an updated tv, but still a lot of older charm. The rooms all have a luxury about them and a privacy that is important. The breakfast was delicious, as was the dinner we had at the Old Feed Mill! The town feels very safe and we felt comfortable roaming around. Our daily excursion took us to the winery, Devil's Lake and Baraboo for an early dinner. It was a great weekend and I'm hoping we'll go back next year to explore some more.

Room Tip: Their website is very accurate about room decor and expectations.

My husband and I stayed here one night while driving to Chicago. The room, common areas and gardens were very cute. We stayed in the doctor's study room which had an electric fireplace and unique decor. We had the place to ourselves and it was great. The town of Mazomanie had historical landmarks and a few bars, very small. Continental breakfast was good with yogurt, fruit, toast, coffee etc. If you are in the area this is a good place to stay.

Childhood memories of the House on the Rock and the Cave of the Mounds led us to the hilly southwest corner of Wisconsin (a two hour drive from Milwaukee for us). Walking Iron Bed and Breakfast was clean, warm (both innkeepers and temperature this chilly fall). It's the perfect place to stay if you plan to visit both attractions for the weekend. It is only 20-30 minutes from each and better yet, just two blocks from The Old Feed Mill Restaurant (where we had a dinner that rivals the best restaurants in Milwaukee).

If you don't like the free DVD's or VHS's in your room... take a walk up the narrow steps to the third floor reading room with skylight where you'll find many more that you can take to your room. We were leaving before breakfast was served at 9 a.m., however the owners made sure to have homemade warm berry muffins, fruit, and juice set out at a table for us by 8 a.m. Overall, just a great place and a great trip.

Room Tip: The doctor's study on the main floor is the only room on that floor in the front of the house...

My wife and I choose this place as our base for the Fall Art Tour despite it being 15 minutes from Spring Green, the center of action for the tour. Our room, the Doctor's Suite, had a separate 2 person hot tub area with a loveseat, as well as a full bathroom with a 2 person shower. Breakfasts were gourmet quality and very creative, with fresh fruit, orange juice and good coffee. We enjoyed talking with the owners.

Recognizing there are limited overnight accommodations in the area, Walking Iron would still be a standout. It is an authentically restored home with five rooms, each with bathrooms that are above and beyond. Great showers, wonderful soaking tubs, large bathrooms! The sleeping rooms are very nice with comfortable, clean beds. Karissa and Dave are accommodating to guest needs. We were able to just relax and feel at home. Breakfasts were excellent and there is fresh coffee (K-cups) 24/7.
