My wife and I visited Wisconsin in order to attend the Fall Art Tour. I always try to find a local B&B that is convenient to the gallery locations, and tend to book those that have good tripadvisor ratings. The Speckled Hen lives up to its ratings!! Great hosts ... wonderful breakfast ... exceptional rooms ... friendly dog and cats ... this is the place to stay. The main floor "common room" with the self-service wine bar and coffee/hot chocolate machine is the kind of nice-touch that comes with staying at a great place like this. We had to pull ourselves away in order to get going on the tour because it was so easy to just "settle in" and relax.
