Thank you so very much for hosting us. You both are so caring and have exceptional attention to detail! The glass, decorations and quilts are exceptional. The breakfast was wonderful too. The talents that both of you employ with your art additionally is amazing

This B & B provides themed suites rather than just simple rooms and each is different with lounge, kitchen, dining room and en suite bedroom. The king size bed in our room was enormous. The whole house is very clean. The hosts, Carol and Gordon operate on a non-intrusive basis but are always there to offer help or offer advice... More

Carol and Gordie have made an attractive and welcoming place to stay. I was there for the weekend to visit my son at Lawrence University, which was just a short walk away. I stayed in the Blue Room, and when I first entered, late after a day of flying, I was wowed by the decor. While there was a lot... More

We were upgraded (complimentary) the 2 nights we were there. We had plenty of privacy, and our hosts graciously accommodated our schedules with the Weekend to Remember Marriage Conference which was just across the river at the Radisson Hotel Paper Valley. The rooms were generously decorated, but pleasant. We had a king size bed and a kitchenette room, which also... More

When planning a quick trip from Louisville, KY for a Packers game, we sort of picked The Appleton Inn by toss of a coin, and SO GLAD WE DID!

We stayed only one night at the Appleton Inn, but what a pleasure it was! Our daughter who lives in Appleton recommended it to us. We knew we were in for a treat when we drove up and saw the purple columns on the porch and the non-conventional Christmas lights. The "blue room" was unique and thoroughly enjoyable. It felt...

My husband booked a room here for my birthday and I couldn't have asked for a more wonderful place to stay. The interior design was eclectic and stylish, homey yet formal.
