The Hotel is right by the water. Great service and great views. We really enjoy the town and the hotel just tops it off. The history of the hotel is fascinating. Great original decor and much to enjoy.

I was really impressed with the decor and welcoming feeling I got the entire time we were at the hotel. The rooms were homey with hardwood floors, although I didn't experience any ghostly activity. We liked the attached bar and had a good dinner there, it was nice not to have to leave the hotel for dinner. I liked all... More

We stayed May 29 + May 30 in connection with a large group from our area, The Inn was,what we had looked up as others did also to be what we knew to expect and anticipated. Nostalgic Haunted and Happy. All people involved from the time of arrival to time to head back home were outstanding. We had inadvertently left... More

There are both pros and cons to this hotel and depending upon what you are seeking on a hotel and location , it would be up to you to decide. It is not a cookie cutter chain so for us that was a positive. First off this is a historic hotel, that has some old furnishings mixed with new and... More

I took my daughter (41 years old) and granddaughter (17 years old) for an overnight stay on May 22, 2015. As we are really into the paranormal, I had to book Room 310 - Agatha's room. Well, all I can say is that Agatha was certainly there with us that night and she did not disappoint us. After we settled... More

My husband and I stayed overnight and had a really great time! The staff were all very friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay again! Love all the history of the hotel and it is s beautiful little town. What the place needs is a developer who has the passion for this lovely lake town and the capital to bring... More

Loved it! What a blast to stay at. Forget the cookie cutter chains and the smothering feeling of a B and B. Reminded me of an inn in Europe. Wide hallways, great ambience, cozy and relaxing. Some furnishings in the shared areas should be retired but the rooms themselves were nice and well appointed. It is haunted but in a... More

My wife and I celebrated our 17th anniversary here. To say the experience was wonderful is an understatement. This is a historic hotel with awesome decor and some possibilities of paranormal activities. If you are looking for a stark hotel with hospital like decor, this is not for you. Where The Karsten shines is in the historic atmosphere and antique... More

We stayed here 2 nights for a Packers game, 30 minutes from Lambeau and cheapest price in the area. Classic 100+ year old hotel nicely updated with modern amenities and wifi. Nice antiques throughout, hotel bar/grille, and free breakfast. Very friendly staff and they even mailed me an item that I left in the room. If you are expecting the... More

This past weekend, I got married to the love of my life and the Karsten hotel had a big part in everything going smoothly. Rehearsal, Rehearsal dinner, and the ceremony went on without a hitch. The staff at the Karsten were all accommodating to my needs and dreams on how I wanted the day to go. I arrived on Friday... More
