This place is awesome all around. One of the best places I’ve ever stayed. Attention to detail was amazing. The rooms were beautifully decorated, clean, had a fireplace, hot tub, and every channel You could think of on tv. There is even an open bar with yummy appetizers. What more could you want? We opted for breakfast in bed. The breakfast arrived at the time we picked on trays in front of our room. Someone knocked on our door and when we opened it there were the trays on a table. You truly can just pop out of bed and pop right back into bed with your food without seeing anyone. You don’t even have to brush your hair or look presentable😀 the breakfast soufflé was out of this world. It was such a good breakfast. I absolutely loved our stay here. My daughter and I were on a college visit to UW Eau Claire and it was a wonderful time! UW Eau Claire was on 8 min away so I know in the next 4 years we will be back many times! Thank you!

My boyfriend and so recently stayed at this Inn. Linda, the owner, was extremely welcoming and accommodating. We stayed in a king suite and the bed was so comfy. The house is very well insulated and sound proof so no need to worry about noisy neighbors! In the morning we had the option to have breakfast in one of the dining areas or brought to our bedroom. We chose to have breakfast in bed and Linda made us an incredible meal that was dropped at our door right at 9:30am when we requested! One of my favorite things about Otter Creek Inn are the breakfast choices. We were able to choose between eggs Benedict, egg soufflé, pancakes, and more! The open bar had lots of variety and the house wine was delicious. Overall we had an amazing and very romantic stay all thanks to Linda. We can’t wait to go back!

We too have stayed at numerous B & B's in the U.S. and Canada. This one was truly elegant - not at all like the ones overstuffed with antiques. There were so many unique touches which impressed us that we have never experienced previously. There were complimentary beverages in our room when we returned from a family wedding, a breakfast menu with several options we could modify to our own tastes and snacks available throughout the entire day, The staff was absolutely great and welcoming. This is our number 1 choice in the United States and looking forward to staying again.

We have stayed at many B & B's over the years and this one truly has unique features that set it apart. We stayed two nights, celebrating our birthdays, and honestly, did not want to leave. As advertised, this B & B is truly private and so thoughtfully organized, tastefully decorated, all around the theme of romance. As tastefully explained on their website, they do love children and pets, however, they are not set up for them here---leave the kiddos & fido at home! We stay in Room 2, a corner room with plenty of natural light, a huge and comfy king-sized bed, large whirlpool (with candles, Sharper Image sound/white noise player and bath salts, along with fluffy towels and cozy robes). On our room doorknob was a "please do not disturb" message and Lisa explained that would stay in place unless we opted to have our room serviced during our stay. We liked that extra measure of privacy. The room had a large flat screen TV (you'll need your Netflix password), air conditioning and spa quality soaps, shampoo/conditioner/lotion. Plenty of towels. Please of place to charge your electronic devices, clock radio, iPod docking station. Other exceptional elements---evening snacks available (cookies, makings for s'mores, trail mix, etc.) along with drinks of our choice available (alcohol or non-alcohol) each night, left for us in our room on ice! Breakfast is done differently here than we have ever experienced. There are 5 entrees available, and you pre-order your selection AND select the time (offerings were ~30 minutes apart) AND where (there was a private breakfast nook right outside our room, which we thoroughly enjoyed). There is also a dining option in the great room, upstairs or in your own room. The breakfast itself is exceptional---the young lady preparing the breakfast is in culinary school and this was her internship. Her breakfasts did not disappoint! Her the enthusiasm for her craft and friendliness were much appreciated, along with her suggestions of fun things to do (Eau Claire downtown farmer's market is fabulous!) in the area. She thought my husband looked like Terry Bradshaw (she's right!) and so we enjoyed that banter throughout our stay. Know that when you get a pot of coffee with breakfast, they readily refill it and if you have a special request (one southern gentleman was hungry for biscuits and gravy and they provided that, even though it wasn't an entree offered that day) they will try to fulfill it. Other elements---wonderful shower, felt like a warm rain! Quality linens, keurig coffee service in room, offerings include tea and hot chocolate, ceramic cups---no cheap paper cups here, liquid creamer (thank you!). Lovely great room---check out that cool penny-laden fireplace! Great room is comfy. with plenty of room to visit, read, play games, whatever you're interested in. Lovely outdoor patio/garden area, fire table for roasting marshmallows,gazebo and plenty of seating, Parking is plentiful. The location, while close to the main road, was surprisingly quiet. We enjoyed the albino squirrel and of course the birds! We booked this room through booking.com.
