Had a perfect inn experience in this restored Victorian Inn. Rooms are charming, breakfast fantastic, and the innkeepers warm and inviting. It's also a great place to stay if visiting Lawrence University- just a few blocks away. Highly recommended!

We planned to stay at this B & B just one night following a Green Bay Packer game but extended to a second night in order to explore Appleton! We are glad we did for we enjoyed TWO scrumptious breakfasts prepared by Lori and served by Keith. The cranberry fruit crisp was 'oh, so Wisconsin'. The weather was actually lovely...

We stayed here during the RockUSA festival. It was so nice to leave the noise and sun for this beautiful inn every evening with a bubbling tub for our sore feet. Before we arrived we were given a free upgrade on our room to the biggest suite. It was always spotless and fresh. The extra details such as the hand...

We were in Appleton for the Green Bay cellcom marathon. The Turret room was wonderful and the extra room was easily able to accommodate our daughter who decided to stay with us at the last minute. Judy went out of her way to work with us to accommodate the early morning race schedules. We would definitely check this place first...

We stayed here for our 15th Anniversary and had a great time! We got a room with a whirlpool bath and we're not disappointed! Great location, easy to find, friendly owners, very nice accommodations, and amazing food! They were very helpful with recommendations if you are new to the area, too!

This beautiful Victorian Inn was a perfect place for a night away from the kids. It was incredibly easy to walk to a nice dinner and enjoy an evening out in downtown Appleton. The room was spacious, yet had a cozy feel. At the end of the day we were able to cuddle up next to a warm fire and...
