“Wonderful experience”
Reviewed 22 July 2012

My daughters (12 & 15 Yrs) and I stayed for 4 nights at Garden House. The breakfasts were amazing, and the hospitality was even more so. Karleen and Tom (and Meg their dog) kept the girls from being too lonesome for their own home and dogs. They were very accomodating as our schedule changed from day to day. In additon the rooms were wonderful, comfortable, and relaxing. It was like staying at a dear friend's home. This comes strongly recommended from all three of us! Thank you SO MUCH for everything!

Room Tip: Karleen will help you figure out which rooom will suit your needs, and is very accomodating.

We stayed for a couple of nights at the Garden house and enjoyed the fantastic hospitality of karleen and Tom. the rooms were excellent, lots of space, clean and well equipped. The breakfasts were fantastic and it was a real taste of American home life. I would recommend it.

I was traveling with my 3 year old daughter. We were very impressed everything - the yard, the deck, the hiking trail, the room, the breakfast, and the hosts. Karleen and Tom are very hospitable, fun to talk with, and excellent cooks. Karleen even played the piano at request of my daughter.

We stayed in the suite -- 2 bedrooms (one queen and 2 twin beds), living area, and bathroom. Lots of space for a family -- we originally were traveling with our family of 4. The room was very comfortable, nicely decorated, and not to busy for a young child to knock something over and break. The area was super quiet and relaxing.

We stayed the beginning of June for one-night in order to visit the beaches in Port Wing. The beaches were just lovely and pristine.

The breakfasts were the highlight of our stay at the Garden House, they were delicious, and varied daily and the hosts obviously put a lot of thought into their preparation. The only challenge with breakfasts was we had to agree to a single breakfast time with the other guests, and the options given (8-9 AM) was significantly earlier than we would choose to get up on our vacation. The location in Port Wing is great, and most of the town and down to the marina and lakeshore is walkable. One drawback was the mattress was obviously pretty old, and fairly firm, and so wasn't very comfortable. The price was very reasonable for a B & B with such good breakfasts.

This was just the kind of place we look for in a B&B - friendly folks, great food, beautiful surroundings and a comfy room. Karleen and Tom are perfect hosts and thier lovely home has beautiful gardens and walking trails and is just a couple of minutes from the lake. It's only a 45 minute drive to Bayfield and we had a pleasant trip coming and going to take the Apostle Islands boat cruise. We also want kayaking to some of the nearby sea caves which are amazing by kayak (or Im sure by ice in winter!).
Highly recommended!
