Innkeeper was very friendly and informative, though never saw his wife. Stayed in the Palm Room, which was very spacious, though dated. Bed was fairly comfortable but sheets pretty worn. Jacuzzi was good sized but it had seats you sat on and you were only supposed to fill it to the fill lines so then you were just sitting there... More

We stayed in the Otter Creek Inn for one night on a two-week trip. Follow the directions that they provide since your GPS will lead you astray. Randy was a gracious host, and the breakfast was both plentiful and delicious. Why would you stay in a chain hotel/motel, when you could get this personal touch for the same cost?

Randy and Shelley have been b&b hosts for quite a few years and know hospitality. They have unlocked the secrets to a proper b&b experience for their guests. They have not missed one detail and the breakfast is amazing! We highly recommend a stay at their inn, which is easy to find with their directions and conveniently located on Hwy... More

You would not expect a B&B like this in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Nothing against Eau Claire, but I would have expected a place like this to be Maine, New Hampshire, or some other place out east. Old, quaint, cool antiques, very comfortable rooms, and a very hospitable host.

Randy is a good host, friendly & helpful, not intrusive. You get to choose bfast the night before, which was delicious and served to our room exactly on time. Very pretty and interesting home, with adorable rooms. I love the huge Palm Room, with its large, separate bath area with great cloverleaf whirlpool! It's a peaceful, relaxing place to stay... More

I think this B&B is unique. Normally, we wake up earlier than we might want and have to make ourselves presentable to join a group of strangers at breakfast, often to join in both the meal and conversation. There are nice aspects of this arrangement, but wouldn't it be nice to have breakfast in your room and perhaps, even in... More

During the hospitalization and death of my sister, 350 miles away from home, the Otter Creek Inn was a Godsend for us. The comfort of our spacious room, the wonderful breakfast each morning and the beauty of the grounds were helpful. But it was the kindness of the owner that made the real difference. When we realized we would need... More

The facility has operated as a bed and breakfast continuously since 1987. There are six guestrooms, each with its own restroom, double whirlpool, and television. Many of the guest rooms also have a gas fireplace and mini-frig. Breakfast is menu style and breakfast served to your room door is a favorite choice.
