We were staying near family, needed to book a room, and stumbled upon this treasure. When I arrived, I was greeted very warmly by the manager, Diane. The rooms were beautiful and had some amazing features I've never seen in B&B's: everything was flat level, there was a lovely whirlpool tub that had a side entrance for people that have difficulty lifting their legs over a regular tub, a walk-in shower, and some other great features.
This would be a wonderful place to go for an older couple, people who need accessibility, or people who just want a good deal, because the rate is unbelievably reasonable for a B&B. There's a back balcony out of the room, which overlooks hilltop scenery and wildlife. The decor is enchanting, somewhat modern but very inviting, as many B&B's are. In the main room, there's also a fireplace. The breakfast was a full continental with a bonus that Diane had a windowed door which opened into the kitchen from her quarters, and she presented some lovely baked apples with cinnamon and raisins. The breakfast wasn't a full one, like some B&B's, but there was definitely a nice range of offerings and we were satisified.
What a wonderful getaway! Peaceful, and I appreciated the fact that Diane's living quarters were separate, as one could roam freely through the house, on the B&B side, and it was somewhat private (I think there are only 2-3 B&B rooms total, but they are very spacious.) We woke up to the morning paper, fresh coffee, and were ready to start the day.
This is located just a few miles west of Port Washington, WI, off Hwy 33. I think you turn north on Y and you're right there.
