The house was so cute and the rooms are very nice and romantic! Breakfast was delicious and we felt very at home. We also loved Appleton and you can walk to downtown from... More

This was our second stay in 2 years in Judy and Ron Halma's excellent B&B right near Lawrence Univ. in Appleton. Last year we stayed in the elegant town house on Franklin Street in an upstairs bedroom. This year, we took the "Big Apple" suite in the house on Durkee and enjoyed the relaxed layout very much. Our grown son... More

My mom and I stayed in the Inn for a trip to see the Lion King at the Fox Theater. It was an amazing Inn! It is 2 blocks from the downtown and walking distance to great restaurants. We ate at the Apolo Greek restaurant and it was spectacular! Our Inn keeper Judy gave us directions to attractions and made... More

I have to take business trips every now and then, and when I do, I dread staying to the hotel with the noise and activity. So, since my husband and I stayed at the Franklin Inn for Romantic Getaways, I thought,"Why not stay in one of the smaller rooms for my business conference?" It is quiet, peaceful, and beautiful? It... More

The Inn is centrally located near all the interesting sites and restaurants in the city. Each room has a different theme (country) and every detail has been thought through well. We stayed with our friends from Chicago and both rooms were cozy, clean, bright, and very comfortable. We enjoyed using the parlor with the fireplace in the evening for some... More

We found the Inn to be extremely delightful and romantic. The host was extremely friendly and accommodating. Our room was the Sea Breeze Suite and let me tell you, it was beyond wonderful. It was Romantic and just plain beautiful. The only problem that we did have was that was the food. Since we are a younger couple we are... More

We arrived at 8 pm and Judy met us at the door with a smile, setting the tone for our overnight stay. She showed us our room, the coffee bar, the fridge and then directed us to a great place for dinner. We skipped dessert as we were looking forward to Judy's homemade caramel-nut bars that awaited us in our... More
