From the moment we arrived, Lisa, John, and son Liam made us feel right at home with a tour of this bucolic farm/B&B. Top-shelf personal attention to our needs and questions put us at ease. They were very knowledgeable about the area incl. highlights of the Stagecoach Trail, nearby Galena, Monroe eateries, Green County, etc. John and Lisa truly walk-their-talk... More

We had discovered Inn Serendipity in the National green Pages quite some time ago, and we finally had the opportunity to visit for two nights earlier this month. Our two nights were at the end of a short road trip "off the beaten path." Inn Serendipity was exactly that. The farm house was a gem -- and the surrounding farm... More

We really enjoyed our overnight stay at Inn Serendipity. The hosts were absolutely fantastic: personable, full of knowledge, warm, and friendly. We had an easygoing tour of their farm, good discussions, and were even invited to a local potluck supper- it was a lovely evening. The morning was quite relaxing, and complete with an amazing breakfast full of local fare.... More

We enjoyed two nights at Inn Serendipity. The breakfasts were delicious, and John and Lisa were very accommodating to my dairy-free diet. It was a pleasure to see their large kitchen garden, renovated straw-bale green house and even enjoy a few wood fired pizzas in the evening. I would recommend a visit, especially if you live in the city, this... More

Lisa, John and Liam were wonderful. I read their book ECOpreneuring: Putting Purpose and the Planet before Profits and have been wanting to make a few changes to my career. Not only did they share their own insights regarding their own journey, but gave me some names to network/contact to gain more insight for my specific career change. The food... More

This is a wonderful haven in the middle of Cheese Country. I had a fantastic time--my life was changed, I recharged, and I learned a ton. I will never look at the world the same way again. The enterprise that Lisa and John have created is phenomenal and full of heart. I needed a break from consumerism and to reconnect... More

I can’t imagine a better place for city folk to start learning about living off the land. Inn Serendipity is a five-acre B&B on a homestead that includes an organic garden and a straw bale greenhouse. The unique and most valuable part of the stay is hanging with proprietors John Ivanko and Lisa Kivirist, who happily share their insights on... More

Once again you took very good care of us and provided a comfortable night in the Music Room. It is so nice to stay in a place that is free of the chemicals of the mainstream world. We don't eat processed food, we pursue a sustainable life, and we truly appreciate what you have done at Inn Serendipity. There was... More

Quiet, relaxing and peaceful place to stay with sustainable living inspiration all around you. Our evening snack (teas and carmel fondu with apples from the trees on the property) and conversation around the table with John, Lisa, Liam and another guest ranged many topics and felt like we were visiting good friends. They helped make our wedding anniversary special with... More

Enjoy the warm hospitality and delicious fresh food at Inn Serendipity. We had a wonderful time getting to know John and Lisa and were very grateful for their attention to detail. Our room was cozy and quiet, just perfect. We were inspired by their abundant garden and enthusiasm for lowering their carbon footprint. Along with being great chefs and gracious... More
