“A delight in every way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2012

My husband and I stayed at the GA B&B for a long weekend during the Beloit Film Festival. Carol was the perfect hostess and most helpful with my dietary needs. Our room was cozy with the most wonderful king sized Posturpedic Adjustable bed. Dear Carol thinks of everything when it comes to her customers. Every morning we had the most beautiful breakfast served with detailed style. I found myself looking forward to every morning knowing Carol was going to put on an amazing spread, and all from scratch. The house is a magnificent sight to see. Best of all is when we asked Carol to sit down with us and have a chat. She was so helpful with information about the town and ready to help in any needs we had. I hope to return again to this amazing house and to see its kind and friendly owner.

I have stayed at the Guardian Angel several times. The entire facility is wonderful. The rooms are furnished in exquisite victorian furnishings. The gardens are like a park. The hostess offers impeccable service and outstanding meals. It is comfortable, quiet and a true delight.

We stayed there with the in laws so my wife and I could share our stories about our recent marriage and honeymoon. It was very cozy and relaxing and we were able to enjoy the wonderful weather on Sunday walking around the area and attended Mass right across the Street at St. Mary's. Carol was able to accommodate all our needs and had more than enough blankets and pillows for a good nights rest. Carol also shared the history of the area and the house with us, very informative. We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again, very reasonable prices.

My aunt and I stayed at Carol's Bed and Breakfast for two nights during the week. Carol was a gracious hostess and a fabulous cook. We began each day with a healthy, delicious, and filling breakfast. It gave us the energy we wanted as we toured the Rotary Garden in Janesville and the Botanic Garden in Madison. The gardens on the grounds of the Guardian Angle Bed and Breakfast perfectly complimented our reason for our trip. The rooms were clean and decorated beautifully. I highly recommend staying here for a get-a-way because Carol's attention to detail in the decorating of the house helped me to feel as if I were in another place and time.

We recently stayed in GA B&B for our 10th Anniversary. Our family rented 3 of the 4 bedrooms and the 4th was empty. The inn keeper Carol was very accomadating to our families dietary preferences and made us a large and tasty breakfast. The rooms are nicely furnished in large and ornate furniture. The house itself is a 6000 sqft mansion with lots of detailing from floor to ceiling. The inn keeper set up wine and a reception gift for the anniversary couples. She even gave us a gift certificate for a return trip and an outfit for our two month old. It was a very nice stay, good meal, and great amenities. I would reccommend it!

Our entire family, (6 adults and 1 infant), enjoyed a beautiful stay at the Guardian Angel. I had contacted Carol directly and I knew just from chatting with her we'd have a lovely time!
Our niece was getting married the same week our two children were having their anniversaires. We decided for their gift we'd treat them to a nights stay while we attended the wedding.
Carol was the perfect hostess. She warmly greeted us when we arrived and had set up some special treats along with anniversary cards and gifts for both our children and their spouses
. She made sure everyone was comfortable and then gave us our privacy. The house is just beautiful and the breakfast was fantastic. My husband does not eat cheese which was part of the main dish she served for breakfast . Which we discussed in advance. I told her not to worry but Carol made him something special so he could enjoy breakfast also.
Our 2 month old Grandson was treated special also! Carol presented him with a gift at breakfast. What a special stay for our whole family. Thanks Carol! We loved our stay...and hope to be back!!!!!

We selected the Guardian Angel B & B after reading the reviews here on TripAdvisor, so I wanted to give back. Don and Carol were very accommodating hosts. I had mentioned we were coming to town to use the outstanding bicycle trails - Don found a map of the trails and highlighted some specific points of interest for us to consider (especially the Rotary Gardens).
We were greeted when we arrived (2 hours late - but called to let them know) and given a tour of the beautiful home and property. The newest highlight is a fountain and patio area just installed - it was a great place to sit and read and relax.
Our room was in a small suite upstairs - there were tons of beautiful knick-nacks to look at (almost afraid to touch). There was a lot of space, a soaking tub (LOVED IT!) and a small patio off the back. The room had lots of sunlight and the temperature was pleasant - they would have accommodated us if we had wanted a window-unit air conditioner, but the fan in the window was plenty of circulation. The queen sized bed was very comfortable, and there was even turn-down service with chocolate mints!
They recomended a couple restaurants for dinner and we took their suggestion (and drink coupon) for the Speakeasy - pretty close by and a restaurant with great service and even better food!
But let's not forget the BREAKFAST! The food was fantastic - first a apple, cinnamon, oatmeal - granola-like warm dish, then fresh cinnamon rolls. The main course was quiche - with ham, spinach and 4 cheeses, some hasbrowns and fruit. The quiche was delectable! Finally, there was a dessert with lemon bars, some candy and some freshly made rhubarb cookies. We were too full to enjoy the dessert.
Don and Carol were wonderful hosts and the B & B was a great experience for our first B & B stay. Thanks!
