The inn isn't very impressive walking up to it since it is all painted white. I think it would look so much better with a new paint job. IT is a beautiful house, nonetheless. When we checked in she did not hear the doorbell so we walked in as another couple was walking out. I don't think she liked that... More

This guest’s preference for non-white houses should not be interpreted as a lack of maintenance. The Phipps Inn is a Hudson landmark and has been white for decades. Prior to that it was dark grey but has never been a Painted Lady Victorian. When it again requires painting it will likely remain white. The usual comment heard here after breakfast... More

My husband and I spent the night at the Inn to celebrate his birthday. We stayed in the Peacock Room and had a wonderful experience. The room (and all of the rooms) was beautiful and so enjoyable. This was our first stay at the Phipps Inn and highly recommend it for a getaway in Hudson Wisconsin. We met Mary Ellen... More

We could not have been happier! Warm room with whirlpool and fireplace, very romantic! Clean and cheery. We were even more pleased with breakfast. Since we have dietary needs sometimes dining out just isn't worth it, but our hosts went above and beyond and served fabulous food. Very happy with "The Stone Tap Grill" also; a must try when in...

My husband and I traveled to Stillwater and Hudson for our anniversary. We had never stayed at a B and B before but I am so glad we did. I loved it! The house was so amazing and beautiful and not to mention CLEAN. I loved all of the little, neat features that the inn had. We were in the... More

My husband and I love this place. First stayed here for our wedding weekend in '94 and have returned for 19 anniversaries plus a few other special occasions ever since (grand total of 23 times I think)! Mary Ellen and Rich are very accommodating and gracious hosts and know a lot about the history of the house. The breakfasts are... More

To celebrate my 50th I decided to plan a getaway with some girlfriends for the weekend. We didn't want to drive too far so I found Phipps Inn while searching B&Bs. The moment we drove up to the house we fell in love with it. We were welcomed by Mary Ellen who showed us around and made us feel "at... More

I traveled with three girlfriends to Hudson, WI from Minneapolis to stay at the Phipps Inn and had a wonderful weekend. We arrived Friday night, decided to have drinks on the porch as it was a beautiful summer day. Mary Ellen and Rick were very inviting, offered to bring ice out to the porch for us and were just as...

While the Inn was beautiful, we felt that we were imposing on the inn keepers. Another couple was leaving the house as we arrived and as they held the door for us, we walked into the foyer. Apparently, there is a very small card on the exterior of the home informing "guests" that they must ring the bell to enter.... More

Thank you for the review. We apologize that these guests did not feel welcome. However we are at a loss as to why it took them 11 months to post a review. We do have a sign by the doorbell. It is not a “very small card.” It is an 8”x10” framed sign where we politely ask guests and other... More

This is a very comfortable Inn with beautiful period furnishings. Ate some delicious and unique tasting breakfast in a friendly family style atmosphere. I had the Master suite all to myself and it was kept up perfectly each day by the staff. Mary Ellen and Rich have paid close attention to every detail and are wonderful hosts. I hope to... More

I recently had to travel to Hudson on a business trip and was fortunate enough to choose the Phipps Inn to spend my 2 night stay. Rich and Mary Ellen were wonderful hosts. Very welcoming and they had great advice for choosing area restaurants for my 2 night stay. I took a brisk walk in the morning before breakfast thru... More
