My husband and I stayed at the Walking Iron Inn for our wedding anniversary. We were greeted at the door by the owner who proceeded to give us a tour of this beautifully restored house and answer any questions we had. He took us to our room, which was lovely and so welcoming. We were the only guests that night, so we had the whole house to ourselves! The third floor library has shelves stocked with books and DVD's. There is also an exercise room and sauna in the lower level . The weather was unusually mild for Wisconsin in March, so we were able to sit and relax on the porch in the evening and the next morning. The breakfast in the morning was outstanding, and the french toast was some of the best I've ever had. I wish I had the recipe! The house has a warm and inviting feel to it, and I would love to return to the Walking Iron Inn in the summer to see the gardens. Our stay is one we won't forget. Oh, I almost forgot to mention the huge, luxurious bathroom with a deluxe whirlpool. Absolutely gorgeous!
