My wife and I have stayed at the Franklin Street Inn and its sister Inn the Franklin Inn on Durkee (the properties are back to back) four times and we plan to stay there many more times in the future. The rooms are immaculately maintained, clean, and well decorated. Both Inns are beautifully restored 19th century homes. Judy is very... More

Each room is themed and beautifully decorated. The location is perfect if you are looking for a place close to Lawrence University or College ave. Judy was very personable and a wonderful hostess. The food was delicious and we got the perfect amount. We will definitely stay at the Franklin Street Inn for a nice getaway in Appleton!

Judy is first and foremost a good- no better than good- great cook. Filling breakfasts with variety all four mornings of our stay. And the company was good, in part because Judy is a wonderful hostess. The rooms were perfect, the Inn is an old but well preserved house in a nice neighborhood near Lawrence University. Judy is has a... More

We stayed at Franklin St Inn for one of the nights during our Honeymoon. The Turret Room has to be one of the most romantic rooms in the State of WI. Beautifully decorated, two person whirlpool, cute little dinning area in the Turret. Take your sweetie and go!

My wife and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary at the Franklin St. Inn. We stayed in the Turret Suite. It's an incredible room and Judy & Ron are great hosts. Breakfast was amazing! The home is located in the heart of Appleton. We enjoyed a very nice bicycle tour of the area, dinner at a local restaurant, shopping on... More

We stayed at the Franklin Street Inn because we came to town to see the group Chicago at the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center, which is walking distance away. Judy was a very gracious hostess. She gave us a tour of the house. The turret room is incredible. She delivered warm cookies to our room as soon as we were... More

Stayed at the Franklin Street Inn, first time staying at a bed and breakfast. The Inn is very nicely kept and styled in the décor of 1898 when it was built. The owner Judy is very personable and very accommodating. When we checked in we were given homemade banana cake which was delicious. Enjoyed breakfast this morning with quite a... More

We had just one day to stop at this very wonderful and unique Inn. We had the chance to make a full tour through the house and it is just amazing with how much love this Inn has been made. Judy and Run were very nice hosts and they want to be sure that you have a nice vacation. This... More

Our stay was a last-minute birthday gift and booking, arrangements and arrival were all super-easy. Judy met us at the door on a sub-zero day and the warm house and her very hospitable self made a very relaxing stay even better. I have never seen a cleaner place, and I have rarely met friendlier people. We want to go back... More

Our experience in Franklin Street Inn was wonderful! The best night during our trip through USA. Warm welcoming, delicious and original food, beautiful and comfortable rooms. Especially I liked the super soft bedding and the fireplace, which created even cozier atmosphere. Actually I have to admit, it is hard to dream of or expect such perfectionism! You can see that...
