Fort Myers, Florida8 contributions1 helpful vote
Enjoyed our short visit in this beautiful home. Room was very clean and filled with artifacts from days gone by. Comfortable bed, updated bathroom and sitting table for the two of us to relax. Even a foot stool by one of the reading chairs. We walked a short walk into town for dinner at a 1940’s diner. When we went down for breakfast music was playing in the drawing room. Felt like we were back in the 1920’s. It was so charming and relaxing. Inn keepers are refurbishing windows and making continual improvements.

We had a wonderful stay at the Ringling House. The hosts are very hospitable and the tour of the house was worth the trip itself! The bed was very comfortable and each room had unique homey touches. It was very convenient to walk to downtown full of restaurants and bars.

We spent two nights at this wonderful B&B. The house is beautiful with many antiques and pictures of the Ringling family. Our breakfast both mornings were delicious and we enjoyed talking to Julie. It was a very relaxing trip.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the historic B&B. The room , bed and amenities were beautifully decorated and comfortable with everything we needed. The entire place is a museum in itself with memorabilia everywhere. Our host Julie couldn't have been kinder and cooked us a bountiful and delicious breakfast. We will definitely be back and highly recommend it.

Highly recommend staying at Ringling House B&B, Julie and Stu are wonderful hosts, the rooms are very comfortable and well decorated. Extra touches like robes, slippers, body wash, shampoo, hair dryers, bottled water, space in refrigerator in common area, candy dishes, and more. Looking forward to staying in the summer months as well, walking to downtown restaurants and sitting on the front porch to have a glass of wine after a busy day. Julie even customized our breakfast for gluten free preference ! The home has multiple spaces in addition to the guest rooms to relax and have a little change of scenery, not to mention the interesting Ringling history of the home. I've stayed here multiple times and will certainly be back again! Thanks!

Julie and Stuart do an outstanding job of making your stay fantastic. The room was great, the romance package was fantastic. The house is so full of history and beautiful woodwork. Julie took time to give us the history behind the house and even their journey to opening the Bed & Breakfast. Capped off by a wonderful wine & cheese hour to wind down before dinner, and a delicious breakfast to get our day started. We will definitely be back!

This was our second time to the Ringling House Bed and Breakfast (first time was Thanksgiving 2021) and we absolutely loved it both times! Julie and Stuart are so friendly and knowledgeable about the history of the home, circus and town. A tour is included so don't pass up the chance to learn all about the history! If you need any recommendations in Baraboo, they are more than happy to help as well. Baraboo is a lovely town with so many great small businesses and locally owned restaurants. Breakfast is wonderful! Coffee, tea, juice, fruit, pastries, yogurt wait for you and the main course is either sweet or savory and always delicious! The rooms we have stayed in have been very clean (they even have a special disinfecting procedure), spacious and we have felt safe staying in them. The shower heads are so great and the hot water never ran out. We highly recommend the Ringling House Bed and Breakfast for your next getaway and are already looking forward to our next visit. Kat & Frankie
