“Perfect spot for relaxing!”
Reviewed 6 September 2010

Anita and Ron run a fabulous B & B here. The house is out of the way (can be a good thing or a bad thing - in our case, it seemed far from Minocqua, but once we saw the lake, it more than made up for the distance.)

The grounds are nothing short of country gorgeous - gardens, grass, lakeside views with glorious sunsets over the lake and frequent bald eagles and waterfowl. The dock is an extension of the living/relaxing space because of the comfortable and numerous chairs at the end of the dock and the shoreside of the dock.

The house is very nice - a wonderfully comfortable great room that has room for guests to sit, read, talk, play cards, etc. The breakfast room is spacious, airy, light, and shows beautiful views of the lake. Breakfasts were excellent. The company was equally excellent - Ron's stories show his sense of humor. The other guests were frequent guests and it was obvious that they had become personal friends, yet we were invited in on their conversations. Our room was fair - pretty much a room. It had a French door that had an obscured view of the lake, but there was nothing spectacular about this specific room (probably b/c there wasn't a place for us to sit and relax in the room.) The bed was comfortable and there was a private bath, and I'd prefer to have an adquate room and fabulous rest of the grounds than vice-versa.

This is a B & B as one should be operated. We would be left alone if we wanted to be. We were included, also, as we wanted. The other guests were nice, as well. One thing I've learned over time is that "fine people" associate with "fine people", and this is the case here, as well. When we visit a B & B, the experience is a shared one - shared with the other guests. Much of our impression is based on not just the hosts' professionalism and friendliness but also the quality of interactions of the guests. Top notch here (not because of income but because of quality.)

A lot of B & B's point guests to trendy restaurants that often don't have that good of food. Not so here. Every place they advised us on had excellent food.

One more thing - the B & B is motorcycle friendly. They have a nice spot to park bikes, and the riding around there is EXCELLENT!

Reviewed 6 August 2009

We've just got back from a two night stay with Ron and Anita at Whitehaven. This lovely B&B is right on the lake, with boats available and chairs on the deck for watching the sunset. The rooms are comfy and clean - ours had a balcony overlooking the lake. Ron and Anita are extremely welcoming - making us feel part of the family with nightly campfires with s'mores! Breakfast is homecooked and ample (pancakes, muffins, quiche) and served in a room with views of the lake. Anita went to some trouble to design a sightseeing drive for us for which we were grateful. There was a very interesting indian village nearby. Minocqua, with many shops and restaurants, was only 10 mins away. All in all a great place to stay - we would highly recommend it.
