My husband and I stayed and Franklin Street Inn this past weekend for a weekend get-away, and were SO impressed by this lovely Victorian home. Ron and Judy (owners) are a wonderful couple who are extremely kind made every effort to accommodate us. The building is beautifully kept and the rooms charmingly decorated. Judy made us a delicious breakfast each... More

We were in Appleton to visit Lawrence University. My son and I loved this inn. Judy's hospitality was exceptional! And on a tour of Midwestern colleges, the breakfast we enjoyed here was by far the best--absolutely delicious! If we are ever in Appleton again, we will definitely stay at the Franklin Inn again!

My son attends nearby Lawrence University, I stay here every time I am in town, and it feels like home away from home. Judy and Ron are warm and friendly and go out of their way to make me feel welcome. No matter how long it has been since our last visit, they remember my wife and I, and welcomed... More

Had a wonderful stay in this lovely Inn right near Lawrence University. Judy is delightful and runs a great place with the yummiest breakfasts. Really comfortable space where we were truly made to feel at home. We look forward to going there in June. Wouldn't consider any other inn in Appleton!

Our second visit to the Inn was just as enjoyable as our first. We love the friendly people at the Inn and again met another great group of people. We always enjoy our chances to meet new and interesting people. We were scheduled to make our third visit to the Inn, but our friend that we were coming to visit... More

THREE months before our reservations were scheduled, realized, due to nature of our extended family needs (larger number than anticipated, each wanting own bed, and several not knowing if could come or not) this was not a good fit for us. When she called to ask for deposit, I explained I had just made alternative plans. She literally sobbed, said... More

We feel badly if any guest or potential guest is disappointed with their interactions with us. We are especially disappointed when it happens to a potential guest who was referred to us by close relatives who had a very positive stay with us, as is the case with this reviewer. She booked rooms for multiple nights at a high demand... More

My daughter and I went to Appleton to visit Lawrence University and stayed the weekend into Monday. Judy was a tremendous host, making sure we were comfortable, knew where to eat, and had information about the local attractions. Breakfast was incredibly delicious. We were delighted with our stay!

Our first trip to Appleton was to see a show at the Performing Arts Center. We love the beauty and character of the B&B. Judy was very accommodating with my gluten free diet and helped us choose a place to have dinner. We will return!

I had a thoroughly enjoyable stay with Judy and Ron in their fabulous Franklin Street Inn in November 2014. I was in town from Ireland to see the Packers and explore Wisconsin so it was a very special part of my trip. The Inn was a great base and over breakfast on game day I was lucky to meet some...
