There are so many good points about the Honey Bee, I'm not sure where I should start. First, the owners, Fred and Barbara are absolutely wonderful! The ten years of research into B&B's shows in every detail of the experience you will have at the Honey Bee. Breakfasts at the Inn are by far the best I have had at any B&B in my travels. Barb prepares and designs the meals with the help of her prep cook and all around go to gal, Julia. My favorite breakfast was Blueberry Brulee, a scrumptious layering of fresh blueberries, yogurt and crunchy oatmeal.
Guests are treated to a Flavia machine (if you don't know what this is go here ---), hundreds of movies to choose from and watch in the comfort of your bedroom, a gift shop that includes disposable cameras just in case, and wonderfully coordinated antiques and knickknacks in every room.
We rented both the Honey Dew Lodge and Honey Pot Cottage rooms and found both very charming. Two other larger rooms are available with whirlpool baths, a plus for those honeymooning or anniversary getaway couples. We stayed here during the Oshkosh Air show and have booked our rooms here for next year already! I also suggest staying here if you are taking in Horicon Marsh.
Listen to Barb's suggestions for dinner!
