My husband and I just returned from a long weekend at Whitehaven, and we cannot say enough about how wonderful our stay was. This is actually our 2nd visit - we discovered Whitehaven last summer and will be returning for many, many years to come. My husband and I are absolutely in love with this place. Ron and Anita, the inn keepers / owners, are absolutely terrific and welcomed us like family. They treat all their guests that way - it is no wonder they are booked with so many returning guests.

The B&B is on Whitefish Lake (about 10-15 minutes outside of Minocqua), and is just gorgeous. Ron and Anita have done a beautiful job with this property. The inn is warm, welcoming and beautiful - a great room with huge fieldstone fireplace, a sunny breakfast nook overlooking the lake (the breakfasts are amazing!), and four charming guestrooms. The downstairs living area is also open to guests (with beer on tap!). The grounds have a fire pit for guests to have campfires, and there are plenty of places to enjoy the lake view and beautiful sunsets. From the moment you step out of your car and smell the refreshing north woods air (scent of pine and woods fills the air), you completely relax and forget about the rest of the world.

If you enjoy peace, tranquility, the beautiful north woods and the occasional (but friendly) ribbing and joking from Ron (he and my husband are just too much alike!), then you will love this north woods gem.

This is very good B&B. I have mixed feelings about B&Bs, so I only go to them every couple of years. (I don't really enjoy talking with strangers at breakfast and having long chats with B&B owners, which seems required nowadays.)

Whitehaven is at the top of my list because of the setting, the high quality breakfast, and the good service.

I give the place four stars instead of five only because of two things: it is pretty isolated from dinner spots, shopping, and other tourist sites, plus the rooms are pretty booked up because of the large number of regulars who return every year.

My favorite aspect of the place, which is probably overlooked by many, is the large common living room on the main floor decorated in classic lodge style -- big furniture, shelves of books and games, with outdoorsy art.

Lastly, I haven't been here in a couple of years but I'm sure it hasn't changed much.

Whitehaven B&B is a lovely property on the outskirts of Minocqua. Perfect for a relaxing long weekend or more. We enjoyed oatmeal pancakes, a variety of fruits, casseroles, baked goods and coffee in big mugs all served in the windowed breakfast room overlooking the lake. Ron and Anita treat their guests like family as evidenced by the number of repeat visitors they have. Boats are available and we even caught panfish right off the dock. There is plenty of opportunity to relax in the large fireplaced greatroom. The comfortable furniture makes you want to curl up with a book and a glass of wine at the end of the day. A nice getaway spot!!

Whitehaven Inn is the best B and B, at the very least, in the state of Wisconsin. With a family lake home less than 10 miles away we still find it necessary to experience the Whitehaven at least once a year. The Whitehaven has hit a trifecta. 1) Location,Location. They are located in a portion of Wisconsin with easy access and something to do for EVERYONE. For the outdoor sportsman you are in the hub of everything. Excellent trails for running, hiking, biking, snowmobiling. Canoeing and kayaking right out your door. If you are a shopper Minocqua is less than 10 miles away. And dining, you will never run out of great options. 2) THE INKEEPERS. Anita and Ron are like visiting family, except you don't feel the need to help around the house. They are this B and B. Always available for your whims, knowing the best recreational areas in the area, the best restaurants, and connecting you with whatever is needed to make your stay perfect. You are made to feel right at home from the moment you enter since you will probably continue a conversation started last visit. Anita and Ron are like that. They feel like your sister and brother-in-law. And what is amazazing is that all the guest are treated that way, and treat you the same. We have had some very, very interesting conversations at the Whitehaven with people we saw for only a part of one day. 3) the B and B itself. Anita and Ron have done an incredible job with this old lake estate. The rooms are all well decorated and comfortable. But, it is the common areas that shine. The bright and sunny breakfast nook, overlooking the lake. The morning gourmet breakfast is always followed by a relaxing hour of small talk. Also a perfect area to sit and play boardgames when you need to relax. Then there is the main gathering area. Huge fireplace surrounded by comfortable sitting chairs and sofas. So easy to sit here and have hours pass by
reading, quietly sitting, or continuing the breakfast discussion.
the lake is wonderful and quiet. Two nights ago we watched a mating pair of Loons 100 yards away fishing. As one Loon struggled with a fish a bald eagled swooped in and hovered feet above the ground, waiting for that fish. We were in Alaska in June and never had that great a viewing. Give the Whitehaven a shot since you will soon after be making a second visit.
