This beautiful Victorian Inn was a perfect place for a night away from the kids. It was incredibly easy to walk to a nice dinner and enjoy an evening out in downtown Appleton. The room was spacious, yet had a cozy feel. At the end of the day we were able to cuddle up next to a warm fire and...

The assurance of our comfort & needs were foremost. A very enjoyable stay. Offered a grand-tour of the facility and added historical details. Breakfast was excellent too. Why stay in a hotel when you can have all this?

Excellent service, beautiful place! The hostess was very helpful, took really cool pictures of us. She is an excellent cook and was waiting for us at night with two different choices of dessert. The whirlpool room was great! Very clean and charming.
