“Beautiful Property”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

The land at Justin Trails is just beautiful, better than we anticipated, better than the pictures. walking the disc golf trail was quite a workout. The wedding we attended was perfection on the train and in the barn. The breakfast was above and beyond - local fresh fruit, lots of bacon, homemade muffins, french toast, quiche, and excellent coffee. Don and Donn were as nice as can be. That being said, I was really let down by the the accommodations. its pretty expensive for the area at $175 a night. I expected more for the money. We stayed in the Lorna Suite. It was a very odd lay out, if pretty well appointed. There was no wi-fi in the room - any of the rooms - and air conditioning did not flow through the room that well. The televisions was odd and difficult to use with about 6 remote controls. We were only there for two nights and advised that we did not need a room cleaning, but wanted fresh towels. the towels that never came.

My husband and I biked the Elroy-Sparta trails and stayed at this bed and breakfast. It was very quiet and quaint. If you want a rural Wisconsin experience this is the place to stay. We booked the Garden Suite and it was very comfortable. We requested our breakfast to be served in our enclosed porch. It was very delicious!!! Eggs, bacon, fresh strawberries, granola, yogurt and muffins. The grounds are well kept and they are always making improvements.

Justin Trails was a perfect spot for a weekend get away. Our time was filled with skiing, tubing and snow shoeing. I'm gluten free and that was no problem for Donna. I felt very cared for and didn't feel like I was a bother. Everything was clean and ready for us. We also really appreciated the selection of games, books and movies in the lodge. We highly recommend Justin Trails and the hospitality of Don and Donna!

Both Don & Donna made our stay most enjoyable! Accommadations were comfortable! Nice to have a choice of either log cabin or main house lodging! Rooms are clean and breakfasts tasty! Great retreat for families or couples! Wide range of activties for summer or winter months. Price is very reasonable! Been to B&B's before, & if you expect all the extras and modern luxuries then you would be spending $200-$250 a night. Loved the hot tubs for their roominess in the suites. Tastefully decorated! Would rate this B&B a 4.5 I like all the extras and my husband likes the outdoor experience.

Room Tip: I like the suites in the main house, but my husband would rather be in a log cabin!

My husband & I had fun weekend at Justin Trails recently. This was our first stay & found our room well decorated, comfortable sleep number bed, big bathroom, new TV & many other amenities to make our stay especially pleasant. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious with granola, eggs, thick cut bacon, & my favorite tea! We didn't eat again till dinner. Would definitely like to return!
Also got lots of excerise on snow shoes. Trails for skiing & tubing were great, too

We just went snowshoeing at this resort and it was a blast! They offered snowshoeing, cross country skiing, and tubing. The trails were well maintained, prices were very reasonable, and the views were lovely. I will be bringing the kids back for tubing and try talking my husband into skiing! Loved it!

We had a wonderful one-night getaway to Justin Trails. We stayed in the Little House on the Prairie cabin. The owners were out-of-state, but we were greeted warmly by the woman keeping the inn during their absence. We found the cabin to be a good size for the two of us.

As other reviewers have mentioned, the breakfast is very good. The selection of skiing and snowshoeing gear available for use by guests exceeded our expectations. The highlight of our time at the lodge was our snowshoe trek to "the rock". The trail was very well-marked, perfect level of difficulty, and offered spectacular views. The grounds are very well maintained; it was obvious to us that a great deal of time and energy is invested into this resort.

Our only regret is that we had to come back after one night. We look forward to returning during other seasons, and bringing our sons in upcoming winters.
