Cameo Rose Bed and Breakfast A Hidden Gem Inside a Rushed and Busy World If you’re searching for peace and quiet, five-star customer service, a clean and very healthy environment featuring the best breakfasts you’ll ever enjoy then the Cameo Rose is for you. Cameo Rose is one of those B&B’s just off the beaten track just outside of Madison, Wisconsin you should enjoy at least once in your life. With the Victorian Architecture, spot-on accommodations surrounded by 120 acres of rolling hills, and my wife’s favorite Fireflies lighting up the early evening you’ll ask yourself, “Is this Heaven? Nope, it’s the Cameo Rose.” Yes, I stole that line from the movie Field of Dreams, but it’s still true. Over the past 30+ years, Dawn and Gary Bahr have created a magically delicious home that welcomes you from the moment you arrive. You can feel the stress leave your body as you drive up and meet Dawn. I say delicious because you’ll be in the presence of a true culinary chef. Her talents and creativity in the kitchen are truly top-shelf. Just between you and me, Dawn doesn’t know how good she is. From the tasty layers in her quiche to her handmade scones, her Eggs benedict, and desserts that can make a grown man cry. Every breakfast is created with the freshest ingredients that combine to become gifts for your pallet. My favorite part of the morning is her description of each ingredient of the meal and what detailed joy that goes into each expression of her talents. On a personal note, Dawn knows I’m diabetic and changed my meals which became a diabetes-friendly experience. This just does not happen in most places, and I’ve traveled extensively. Each morning sitting on the large front porch drinking a coffee listening to the menagerie of birds singing their morning songs or at night with a glass of wine I realized these moments are the best and most wonderful ways to start and finish your days at the Cameo Rose. Thank you Dawn and Gary, Rick and Julie Wells, Seattle PS: There are two beautiful cranes that wander the property. We named the Libby and Delbert. Please say hello for us.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Cameo Rose Victorian Country Inn during our visit to Wisconsin for the New Glarus Beer, Bacon & Cheese Festival. Dawn was extremely welcoming and made some of the most delicious food I have ever eaten. In fact, she even prepared breakfast for us the night before we had to leave since we had an early flight to catch. The property was beyond beautiful, our room was enormous, and the company was fantastic. We wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy this beautiful, charming stay!

Enjoyed another special weekend at our favorite B & B. Went for a romantic evening walk at dusk after an excellent dinner. Admiring the beautiful grounds . Waking up to breakfast on the porch that was excellent stuffed French toast. The host Dawn treats you like royalty. She makes every guest feel special and goes out of her way to accommodate you as well as be a wealth of information on the best restuarants and local events . That is why we keep returning to our special romantic getaway. We highly reccomend Cameo Rose.

Quiet, peaceful setting. Excellent accommodations that are the epitome of cleanliness and comfort. Breakfasts are awesome! Dawn is the best cook and makes everything from scratch using as much fresh local produce and products as possible in addition to using foods from their own gardens. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing getaway.

So much thought and passion put into this gem of a bed and breakfast! Beautiful grounds and amazing breakfasts. The charm of the decor and the hospitality that Dawn and Gary give made our weekend so amazing. Extra details like fresh baked cookies and hot apple cider in the afternoon just added to the incredible experience. Thanks for making us feel so welcome! (Make sure you try Chef Gary’s classic fresh chilled breakfast ice-water cocktail 😀)

Thanks to Dawn and Gary for a wonderful stay at Cameo Rose. The wrap around porch in the fresh air was a quiet and favorite spot for us to read and enjoy the afternoon treats Dawn baked for us. The full home made breakfasts were so delicious along with the friendly conversation. Dawn enjoys keeping her guests satisfied and it shows. We appreciated the extra health precautions evident during these Covid 19 times. We hope we can return again in near future. Gary and Rita

Dawn was the perfect hostess! The grounds were beautiful, our room was spacious, our bed was so comfy & our jacuzzi tub for two was just the best after walking the scenic trails!! The breakfasts were amazing and plentiful. It was the perfect place to just unwind, relax and forget your stressful life.

My husband and I enjoyed Cameo Rose for our 44th anniversary get away. Cameo Rose out did themselves to make our stay safe and enjoyable during Covid-19. Dawn created hot and delicious breakfasts served up individually to enjoy on the porch or screened in gazebo. She accommodated my diet sensitivities with muffins baked up just for me. Unlimited fresh brewed coffee started our morning. Later in the day, Dawn offered lemonade and an evening snack besides! She advised us on the bike trail conditions and great recommendations for evening meals. The best part was the quiet and great views of green and sunsets!

My Wife and I Book The Cameo Rose B&B Bellview Wisconsin For Our Special occasion (50th Anniversary) I Was looking for Something around the New Glaurs area and found their site and called Dawn to make the arrangements. The site showed many pictures when we arrived We were not disappointed. The beauty of the area was so beautiful and breathtaking. Dawn greeted us at the door and showed us the beautiful home and our Suite everything was decorated so tastefully and thoughtful for the comfort and relaxation of the guests. Dawn specialises your Breakfasts to your liking as far as ingredients and style. We were catered to and pampered like no other, we have stayed at many B&B's over the years and have to say this is our favorite We walked through the trails their extensive property and took in the beautiful Wisconsin beauty so peaceful and relaxing. Everything was beyond our expectations. We cannot recommend the Coral Rose B&B enough If you are looking for a Special Get A Way Venue This is it. Many Thanks Dawn & Gary at Cameo Rose you Made our Anniversary One we will never forget . Thank You. Dave & Terry Krans 💕

Dear Dave & Terry--First of all, my apologies for not responding to your fabulous review earlier. (My computer went out mid-June and I missed the notice from Trip Advisor about your review.) I so appreciate your detailed and personalized comments as they tell a story that makes me want to stay here, too! (As a guest.) :) Thanks a million for taking the time to do this. I hope you are recuperating nicely and all healed by now. As the first guests we took after being closed for over 3 months, we could not have enjoyed a nicer couple or been more reassured that this would be able to work. Sending blessings and prayers to you both. Hugs, Dawn & Gary
