My husband and I, one brother & his wife from Ohio and another brother and sister-in-law from Arkansas were going to Milwaukee to attend another Brothers surprise 80th Birthday Party . We checked out several hotels in the area and read reviews and didn't like what we read. I googled for a Bed and Breakfast in Milwaukee and up came County Clare. All I had to do was read the reviews and I was SOLD on staying there. I reserved 3 rooms.
I called ahead the day of our travel to Milwaukee to ask the Inn if it would be possible to check in a little early so we could change clothes because we had little more than an hour to attend the party. The young lady said she would see what she could do to accommodate us which she did. Everyone was so pleasant and helpful. Our room was beautifully decorated,cozy and spotless.
The location was easy to find when we arrived in Milwaukee, and parking was just behind the Inn. Later that evening back at the bar in the pub we were given a free bottle of Champagne which came with renting the room on a Sunday night. If you like a Bloody Mary you've never seen one made like the bartender makes here at the County Clare. Our Bloody Mary looked like a meal.The drink contained tomato juice, vodka, lemon slice, small potato, slim jim, pickle,olives,slice of cucumber, slice of tomato, celery and maybe something else I can't remember but you MUST TRY IT !! The best part is it's affordable!! Try and get the cute waitress Colleen she was very sweet !!
Next morning Monday a free breakfast---omelets were made to order plus many other wonderful things to eat that made our return trip back to Ohio even more pleasing and memorable .
