“Wonderful experience in Walker House”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2013

Every year I and some girlfriends take a short autumn get-away. While researching the area I found the website for Walker House and was fascinated by the history behind the house as well as the philosophy of the new owners. We were not disappointed by our stay there. Kathy and Dan were so welcoming and informative. Our room was charming and the Cornish pub very cool! We definitely hope to visit again.

The Walker House, built in 1836, with its massive stone walls and impressively decorated rooms is a wonderful place to reconnect with the past and ponder the future while enjoying wonderful hospitality in the present. We have been there twice and will return. There is a little stream out front and a walking path too. It has an art gallery filled with photography. Beautiful.

My husband and I had a great stay in Room #2 for two days during a local poetry festival. Kathy and Dan are some of the kindest, helpful and most sincere hotel proprietors on record. Plus, they have transformed the old Walker House into a wonderfully restored gem. Our room was spacious, with a sunny east facing, a tremendously comfortable king bed and, every writer's favorite, a wooden desk. Everything in town is within walking distance. Brewery Creek runs in front of the hotel, which adds to its picturesque charm. Be sure to visit the art gallery and the inn's pub, which offers choice Wisconsin beers and wines, which you can sip in two actual caves right inside the property! The complimentary breakfasts inside the spacious dining room were made to order from a checklist menu and Kathy surely knows how to make the fluffiest scrambled eggs. The Walker House would be a perfect place to have a wedding or hold a conference. Only caveat: Because of the structure of this stone building, bathrooms could only be constructed within certain areas, thus making it necessary for guests to share bathrooms. Extra bathrooms are available off the dining room and the pub.

Room Tip: My husband and I liked the privacy and spaciousness of Room #2. Nicely decorated in a serene country...

I have been in contact with the new owners to arrange a few rooms for a family reunion in the MIneral Point area this summer. They have been great to deal with- very responsive and friendly. I am familiar with the building having spent many months staying in Mineral Point for business (at other great locations around town), but am thrilled to see that new owners have acquired this great building and are pouring a lot of tender loving care into it. It looks like a fabulous new addition to the already great choices town. It's a 2 minute stroll across Brewery Creek to some of the best restaurants in town. You can find out more about it by looking at accommodations on the mineral point website.
