I wish I could upload a picture of the construction zone that supposedly was a three star B and B. the neighborhood is not sketchy it is just plain unsafe and the building has seen better days. The yard was full of furniture and scaffolding enveloped the building on both sides.

I've stayed with Laura Sue and Rick, and gracious hosts of Schuster Mansion, at least a dozen times over the years; often while I'm on Milwaukee for business, but for a get-away as well. I am consistently charmed by their Victorian manners as I am by the authentic Victorian surroundings. The breakfasts are delicious and served on period china. The... More

Our initial impression was very unwelcoming. We came in the back door as we parked in back (where we should have). Laura Sue was very condescending as we checked in and was very snappy when we tried to ask some questions before she finished 'checking us in'. First impressions are important and ours was not a very good one. Word... More

We had a suite of rooms which gave us options to read, drink coffee or watch TV. The breakfasts were excellent, crepes, strata, etc. The hosts were very welcoming, we parted as friends. The house itself is gorgeous, built in 1891 and many of the features remain. It is wonderfully decorated. Easy to get to downtown from the mansion. We... More

This was a find. The mansion is unbelievable and i have never seen so much attention to detail. The Innkeepers were so much fun and even saw that we got safely to and from the Brewers game. It was a step back in time with all the amenities. Thank you Laura Sue and Dave for sharing your home with us... More

We only had one night to spend in Milwaukee, but we wish we had had more time. We stayed at the Schuster Mansion B&B and enjoyed it immensely. The proprietor was delightful--full of information about the mansion and the city--and great fun to talk with. Everything we asked for was provided immediately, including nice china for our delivered pizza! Breakfast... More

My husband and I stayed in this beautiful mansion at the end of a long trip that included stays in eight different hotels or bed and breakfast inns. This one was certainly the top in terms of its rich history, fascinating and diverse neighborhood, and interesting and gracious host. Breakfast was delicious, and the coffee was superb! Our suite (Pia's... More

This beautifully-run bed and breakfast was a real retreat for our family. The host and hostess, Rick and Laura Sue, definitely made it a memorable experience. Breakfast was delicious, and there were many touches that made it very special. Their kindness was very evident in all areas. Thanks again!

What fun to walk into a bygone era. We loved the historic home and our suite. Coffee with a delicious pastry on gorgeous china was delivered to our room prior to the wonderful breakfast at a time of our choosing. Great attention to detail. My husband likes brown sugar with his coffee, and there it was. My herbal tea, loose... More
